    For a full participation, I would recommend a red-eye on Tuesday or at least a flight after 9pm est.

    Tuesday evening would be a Congressional Reception. After that we would have an IV meeting with members to discuss IV next steps etc. So keep departure flights to be late Tuesday night or after. I would highly recommend being in the Congressional Reception. You will get to meet several staffers and lawmakers here and talk to them.

    why dont you enlighten us all here with your english knowledge. i am pretty sure you are one cockroach who grew up in dirty gutter in some part of the world. You are here in IV just to create controversies between the IV members. Trust me, EB2 or EB3, we are smart enough to recognize tunnel rats like you and keep you where you belong - in the it?

    We know for sure nothing is going to happen with EB3 unless EB2 also moves. USCIS will never skip EB2 to help EB3. The law does not allow that. So, the interviewee must talk about the topic as a whole not EB2 or EB3 - no one in America knows what those mean.

    The bigger issue is that not many can speak/write English well and so cannot be sent on TV....unless the interview is on Namaste India or something.

    Can we make all threads for only members for a short period of time and see the results if it is an easy thing to do ?

    Hi All,

    I think the reason that we do not have many members is that many people go to the website immigration voice and as the access is avaliable to read all posts without a log in and password they read and never want to become a member.

    do u think this can be one of the reasons.

    i am not sure just a thought.

    I filed my I-140 in July 07, I-485 in August with PD of June 07(EB3 India). Perhaps there may be many more like me with very recent PDs. Given that it is going to be a very long wait for getting GC, what should be a good approach for me? Use EAD after I-140 is approved (AC21 would be in place by that time) to make the most of the waiting time or play it extremely safe and stay with the current employer till GC is received? :confused:

    yes, it is from AILA, very likely to be true:

    MAY BE, may be not....don't believe me either.

    Subject: Update on July Visa Availability

    We are hearing from multiple sources that, on Monday or Tuesday of next week, State Department plans to issue a revised Visa Bulletin for July 2007.
    This revised Bulletin would retrogress some or all of the employment-based
    categories, very likely to the point of unavailable.

    "multiple sources".....sounds classic rumor to me.

    Reports from AILA
    members about unusual levels and types of activities by USCIS indicate a
    particular push to adjudicate employment-based adjustments currently in the
    pipeline so as to exhaust visa numbers for fiscal year 2007.

    I've read this statement several does this indicate that there will be retrogression??? Also one unusual acitivity of USCIS has been to suspend premium processing of I-140 for the month of July. That to me suggests that they are preparing for the deluge of I-485s.

    This follows the actions of USCIS in June, when it began rejecting EB-3 "
    Other Worker" adjustment applications even though the Visa Bulletin showed
    an October 2001 cut-off date, on the basis that the "Other Worker" numbers
    for the year had been exhausted.

    Again...aren't the mechanics, numbers allotted to this other worker category different from EB-2,3?:rolleyes:

    The priority dates could retrogress to their current levels, or further back, as soon as August 1st, but definitely by October 1st, once enough green cards have been issued for the 2007 fiscal year.

    2008 quota starts Oct 1. So it does not make sense to retrogress Oct 1.

    I think it will take almost a month before there is significant number of members who sign up for recurring payments. So, keep it up and spread the word.

    I was wondering how many of 8400 messages were undelivered?

    We EB3 folks are not requesting for EB2 visas. We all will be happy to get 50% EB1 spill over visas. The other 50% can go to Eb2s.

    right now 100% of EB1 spill over is going to EB2.

    Eb2 category gets 28.6% Visa number. Any spillover from EEB2 will only go the EB2. Why would USCIS change the rule and allocate the visa numbers from EB2 to Eb3. This does not make sense. I agree that spillover from Eb1 can go to both EB2 and EB3. There is no way this argument will fly that EB2 numbers be allocated to EB3. This is a statue and USCIS cannot deviate from that. They will face a lawsuit if they do so. USCIS is using the correct spillover procedue and I dont think they will change it. The only argument EB3 should make it that spillover from EB1 should go to both EB2 and EB3.

    It is not individual qualifications that matter but it is the job requirement. So if you are in EB3 try to port it to EB2. Nothing else will matter.

    I was just getting more information on EB3 India on the net.And found an interesting blog(It makes sense to me and that why i am posting this thread)

    Its a 2006 blog , but it makes sense even today for EB3 India

    Finally that's when you switch on your calculator and start working with the numbers. There are 140,000 visa numbers available under all the employment based categories, with 7% per country limit and 28.6% allocated for EB3 and dependents counted into the numbers, there are only about 115 EB3 primary applicants allowed from India per month. Throw in a few thousand illegals(amnesty) into the mix and now you have the royal screw-up as is happening now. The law allows visa numbers from unused countries to be transferred to the oversubscribed countries but with nearly every category retrogressed this law won't apply for a while.

    The future looks toooo dark even to mention.

    Jago EB3 Indians Jago

    I'm all for this. This is very close to my heart. I probably care more about this than I do, my 485 approval.(can't have one without the other, I know I know. But still.).

    I don't know when I'll get my 485 approved, hopefully within the next year. But I'm willing to work on this, whatever it takes - contributions, lawmaker meetings, DC.

    I'm in.

    This has got to be simple too. When the citizenship law was first drafted, immigrants got their green cards within months of entering the country. Start to End of the greencard process took under a year, if not less.

    The intention of the law was to have them learn the language, the ways of the country, and assimilate, which was expected to take about 5 years, before applying for citizenship.

    These days the green card process itself take over 5 years for a lot of people. Most Indians and Chinese in the EB2 category, and pretty much the entire EB3 category have lived here longer than 5 years. In those 5 years they have gone to school here, paid income taxes, bought homes, and learned the language (well they had to, in order to qualify for an employment based green card!). What more "assimilation" do they need to do?

    I definitely think that the following should be the criteria for eligibility to apply for citizenship,

    - An approved green card
    - 5 years of continuous U.S. residence starting from the date the 485 application was received.

    Let's do this.

    Excuse me, but what's 485 got to do with assimilation? It would be perfectly legitimate for people who are waiting for their dates to be current, following the exact same logic as above

    People sometimes draw the line just where they themselves have just crossed it

    This won't fly because the simplistic model for immigration bills is -

    D(hispanic) + D(labor) + D(neutral) + R(business) + R(nativist) + R(neutral) < Enough votes to pass Congress

    I agree, this is the way politics works most of the time. lobby for votes, etc.

    But isn't it also their job to do what is in the best interest of the Nation. Everything isn't decided by lobbies.

    Maybe we're approaching this the wrong way, in trying to build competing lobby. it needs a new approach. Congress should be convinced in a different way.

    Lobby is for optional, nice to have things, which will not be generally missed if they fail.
    Legal immigration is none of these and is almost mandatory. Imagine losing for eg. 200K EB3s. another 50K doctors.

    i met a guy like this last weekend. came to US 2/3 yrs back. has masters in India and has 5 yrs total experience. not doing any research. He is actually a contractor at a client. the employer, applied his GC under EB1. he got GC under 1yr. I was amazed.
    he says, his employer applied for few of his other colleagues too, but rejected. most amazingly, for one of his boss (1 or 2 levels above him) also they applied under EB1 but his app was rejected. unbelievable stuff. i guess the EB1 verification is random.

    Be so bothered about this trend if it was not siphoning away green card numbers from people who have paid taxes for so many years, played by the rules and still don't have anything to show for it. Plus under EB1 these guys completely skip the labor cert system and escape the brunt of DOL inefficiency.

    Nowadays with job openings I'm seeing that the lowest common denominator is taken over a better qualified candidate, the differentiator being GC. If that's the case these guys/gals gaming the system will one day be our bosses. And we with our degrees and experience will have no other option but so say "Yes sir" to these chumps who got lucky.

    I'm honestly thinking of writing a letter to the CIS director asking them to please scrutinize these applications closely.
