    Dear Sir/Madam

    I have been in the country Legally on a student visa and then on a work visa for 10 years. I have been in line and have applied for a greencard 6 years ago and my application has been shuttled through various departments and agencies in a 4 step procedure and now being stalled for want of a number (An immigrant number) for a highly skilled immigrant. There are an estimated 1/2 million legal law abiding, tax paying individuals in a similar situation who need your attention. All of them are in the country on a work visa and are in line to recieve an employment based green card.

    The Employment based green card system is completely broken due to excessive delays and backlogs in petitions of nearly half a million highly skilled workers who are certified by US Government to be doing a job that no US citizen is willing, qualified or able to do. The delays in obtaining a permanent residency are due to 2 reasons: Numerical caps on employment-based green cards and processing delays in adjudication of files. Today the system takes anywhere between 6-12 years to grant Green cards to some of the best and brightest of the world who have chosen America as their future home.

    These future Americans are facing huge quality of life issues and their employers are facing difficulty in attracting more of the best and brightest of the world due to the broken system. The system prevents these workers from accepting promotions and switching jobs for the time-period it takes to process their files. By stagnating career growth and suffocating the creativity of the most innovative and technical minds of the world.
    The processing delays mock America�s respect for those who �play by the rules� and get in line. At the same time USCIS awards 10s of thousands of greencards to people every year outside of USA based on a pick or lottery.

    At the end of 2006, there were an estimated 200,000 employment-based principals waiting for labor certification, which is the first step in the U.S. immigration process. The number of pending I-140 applications, the second step of the immigration process, stood at 50,132. This was over seven times the number in 1996. The number of employment-based principals with approved I-140 applications and unfiled or pending I-485s, or the last step in the immigration process, was 309,823, a threefold increase from a decade earlier. Overall, there were 500,040 employment-based principals (in the three main employment visa categories of EB-1, EB-2, and EB-3) waiting for legal permanent residence. And the total including family members was 1,055,084.

    These numbers are particularly troubling when you consider there are only around 120,000 visas available for skilled immigrants in the EB-1, EB-2, and EB-3 categories. To make things worse, no more than 7 percent of the visas are allocated to immigrants from any one country. So immigrants from countries with large populations like India and China have the same number of visas available (8,400) as those from Iceland and Poland.

    At the same time, a debate rages about H-1B visas and this gets considerable press coverage. Companies such as Microsoft, Intel, and Oracle have been lobbying for visas to bring in skilled immigrants, but have focused on expanding the numbers of H-1B visas available. Why? Perhaps because workers on these visas are desirable, as they are less likely to leave their employers during the decade or more they are waiting for permanent residence.

    So we want skilled immigrants, but we want them to come on the right visas as permanent residents. The battles being fought are about bringing in more people with H-1B visas�not about those who are already here with them and stranded in �immigration limbo.�

    Unlike many of the problems facing the United States, this one isn�t hard to fix. All we have to do is to increase the number of visas offered to skilled workers in the EB-1, EB-2, and EB-3 categories from 120,000 to around 300,000 per year. And we need to remove the per-country limits. Instead of requiring graduates from top universities who receive jobs from American corporations to go through the tedious H-1B visa process, we should provide a direct path to permanent residence. We are now competing with the rest of the world for the best talent. We need to do all we can to attract and keep skilled immigrants, rather than bring them here temporarily, train them, and send them home.
    One more most important aspect is also to provide an oversight over USCIS. Presently, processing delays, lost paperwork, incourteous and bad customer service and above all a non-transparent system is what immigrants face. Why should legal tax paying immigrants wait in line patiently for half a decade and pay high fees to get lousy customer service and no accountability for fees?.

    Yours truely,
    Frustrated, law abiding, tax paying immigrant

    There is a funding drive in this other thread towards reimbursing Aman's expenses.

    Could you please pledge an amount ?

    It gives a solace that there are still some good people out there in this mean world. It is ridiculous to point out that it is a typo. Other than money what Aman and others have done is priceless.

    That was a great one jthomas. 100% agree.
    Have decided to dump my H1 for good and start EAD on my new AC21 job soon.

    Using H1B makes one safe. but how many years we want to do the safe job. If I-485 gets denied do u have enough patiences to file another green card. One thing is believe is "We are here to make money, most of us are in our thirties and we have short time remaining to reach our goals. I think we all have one year EAD. wait for 6 months then go on job hopping, learn whatever you can, get into whatever you want. Start a business, do something.... Anything you do will help you in future. Sitting with H1B in pocket may take 4 years cream of your life.
    If you have the talent you can get great salaries anywhere in the world. Because of your talents and hard work you guys are here. World is not small.

    The only way to counter this is to get our story out in the media. i joined the forum today and went through a lot of mails on the forum. i saw pappu making appeals to members to help him write to reporters. I saw state chapter threads and only few members have actually signed up for work. see only a handful responded. others simply come on forums and rant. but only few actually do the work. I also observed members critical of Iv or telling IV to do this or that, instead of doing something themselves. My other observation is that members do not contribute money and come to this forum for free advice. Nothing in this country is free but IV is providing this forum and also free advice from lawyers. But members are simply taking advantage of IV and not paying back what they are getting from it. This has been my personal observation. Members we have seen how visa bulletins affect us and demoraliize us. why dont we all do something instead!

    You are hitting the right buttons here! You can say it is either laziness or fright/jitters or the comfort of current H1B approval/stamp that is making the large populace to sit tight.

    Guess what, once some of the battles are won (we can never win all - they will always be ongoing), we should either knight pappu or induct him to "IV Hall of Fame".

    I talked to my lawyer today about what he thought about this new development and he indicated that there might a court challenge to this new rule. Now from a lawyer's and employer's point of view, I can understand their frustration and they certainly have the money to drag this thing in the court for a while but the question is will they? And if they decided to go to court, will the new rule be halted until a decision is made by the court? He indicated that the least the lawyer's and employer's might accept is to exclude the existing approved labors from being affected by this new rule.

    Let's all hope that they don't succeed; otherwise this new rule won't help us as much as it could.

    Why dont you call VFS and find out what's happening and if they can help you to resolve this?

    I might have more information than VFS. The VFS agents don't know what's happening in the consulate. The agents doesn't know more than what is already present in the VFS website.

    My company got an RFE for ability to pay from USCIS. we are responding back with my companies 2006 tax returns and w-2 which shows more than proffered wage determined by Dept of Labor during PERM. I hope this should be fine and I will get a favorable response.

    My concern is whether I should apply for 485 or should I wait till 140 approval to apply for 485.

    please advice.

    I also got an I-140 REF on A2P. USCIS requested my company's 2006 Tax Return, my 2006 W2 and 3 latest pay stubs. I am still waiting for my employer's tax return, However I am going to apply I485.

    Finally my attorney from the previous company has received the withdrawal notice for my H1B with that company. The attorney also said that this was in response to the withdrawal request that the company has filed with USCIS after I left them.

    06/03/2008: House Returns to the Session Today After Memorial Holiday Break With Various EB Legislative Bills on the Shelves

    * Both the House and the Senate will start picking up the legislative bills from this week and some of the employment-based bills will come to their attention as time moves on, such as Conrad 30 extension bill or Conrad 30 program improvement bill for the international medical graduates (current law already sunsetting two days ago on June 1, 2008) and religious worker immigration bill which will sunset at the end of September 2008. These two bills passed the House waiting for the Senate action.

    There are many other immigration bills pending in the House and the Senate, some of which were attached to the Iraq War Emergency Special Spending bill in the Senate and all of these bills were killed by either the Senate majority leaders or hardliner minority Senators primarily related to the AgJOBs bill which was considered by the illegal immigration relief opponents as an amnesty legislation which the Democrats attempted to pass as part of the national election year strategy.

    The employment-based immigration bills are currently facing a strong resistance from the comprehensive immigration reform advocates opposing piecemeal immigration legislations and deeply tangled in the election year party politics. The comprehensive immigration reform proponents appear to take a strategy of holding the immigration legislation at bay until next January or February, while the employment-based piecemeal immigration proponents want the Congress to pass these bills before the end of the year. As the primaries of the Democratic Presidential nomination are about to wind down and the election politics will pick up the heat of steam of the presidential fights between the Republican candidate and the Democratic Candidate, both of the candidates may noticeably try to move to the center to grab independent voters, giving added strength to the comprehensive immigration reform proponents as opposed to the employment-based piecemeal immigration reform proponents. From the perspectives of the employment based immigration legislation, there lie some uphill battles. We will closely watch and monitor the drama for the next two or three months. Unless any EB based bills are compromised and passed during the period, the chance for the EB reform will practically evaporate in 2008. Please stay tuned.

    Hopefully someone from all the complainants in this forum will spearhead this initiative and hopefully there will be people out there that will stand up for themselves and join this pool

    If IV can outline how it is going to help, that would really make many people come out of the shelves. However, though we talk so much, people are still scared to identify themselves against the employer. However, they may be ready to outline everything against the specific employer as an anonymous person. we got to deal with a situation where people are ready but anonymously. How can we handle this.

    I will not call it as reverse brain drain but diversion of brain drain to other pastures that may be worthy from individuals standpoint.

    According to the census 45% of all the computer engineers are foreigners and so are the 51% of all the scientists. American students are busy studying business management. A fifth of population under 18 to 24 Yrs can't locate US on the world map. 48% of American can't locate UK on the world map.

    Good on.

    Any idea when this is going for voting?
    Democrats are supporting this or not?

    I would strongly suggest everyone to acquaint himself/herself with the legislative process and how a bill moves through different phases / steps before it becomes a law. You can find many postings documenting the process.

    Right now it is just introduced in the senate. The problem for us is that Sen Durbin is Democratic Whip (i.e. Assistant Majority Leader) which gives him tremendous influence over garnering votes and referring which legislation to consider to the Majority Leader (Harry Reid in the Senate). Ultimately Reid decides which legislation get priority consideration. The fact that Grassley is a Republican and is close to the Minority Leader (I think) does not help us either. We will monitor the progress of the bill.

    IV now has clout which should be immediately used for a permanent fix. Two issues which might not require laws being passed can be implemented to ease the backlog situation that will be created.

    1. Recapture lost Visa numbers- A just and reasonable demand that they cannot refuse.
    2. Remove per country cap- It is stupid to look for diversity in a category based on intellect. The whole category is created for improving America's brain power so a country cap does not make sense.

    Which is better to say" We want 10 people with OK intellect from 10 different countries of the world" or " We want 10 absolutely brilliant people-period"

    Supporting argument:
    There is no country cap on H1/L1 work visa then why there is country cap for permanent residents.

    But the cost of collecting 5 bucks a month from 20,000 members makes this less than desirable. An yearly $60-100 membership fees is what I'd expect to pay to any organization - more if that organization is actually working to make a significant difference to my life, to resolve issues that affect me more most other stuff.

    A 2-month trial-membership is more like what a business does... and may not be desirable for all the house-keeping involved in such efforts. For subscription-based content websites, this may be O.K. - but that's exactly what we're not, and shouldn't be perceived as such.


    I would suggest giving a 2 months trial membership during which the candidate can examine the benefits of IV. After the trail period, charge a nominal $5 monthly fee. I think that should be very reasonable, and nobody would lose their sleep over parting with $5. That would easily raise about $100K per month (~20K members*$5).
    However we should continue to encourage members to commit to monthly contributions if they choose to voluntarily. Also as someone suggested, different access privelages may be assigned.
