    EB3I dates never really crossed 2001 after the JUL 07 drama which screwed all EB3 in my opinion.

    1) USCIS never looked at those cases which got ported out. So if they try to process cases in 2002 they might end up finding lesser cases needing approval than they actually counted, could be bcoz of porting or people who gave up and left the country. USCIS is auto porting the date if you have old labor and i140, I know few friends who got GC like that.

    2) At this pace EB2 will be current by mid next year, once it is processing time for 485 is at least 4 months which will fall into 2012, so the same huge number of spill will come to EB3 ROW. If the spill over is too much USCIS may consider spilling it to worst retrogressed countries.
    -ve aspect: If USCIS starts doing quarterly spill over this may not happen. So as per my logic USCIS will start doing quarterly spill soon.

    3) The as&***s who decided to change the spill to vertical might get bitten by a mad donkey or a dog and might change it back to the old model. I don't see any &&)) why all the spill has to go vertically from 2007, bcoz we irritated USICS or DOS by kissing their weak spots.

    4) As per my Karma or belief model whatever IV does, hurts EB3 more. I don't think any admin fix will fix the vertical spill or recapture.

    Good luck EB3 i guys and try to keep ur frustration levels to LOW.

    Thanks for the advice but your points have too much of optimism. Once Eb2-I reaches July-07, depending on how many months they open it up, we'll see a flood of EB2 applications again. And no one with sane mind is going to file EB3, we'll only see EB2 in most cases. Also everyone whoz waiting to file 485 now have got enough US experience to be eligible for EB2. I doubt, even with spillover, if EB2-I will become current even by 2014.

    EB2 are more skilled by definition than EB3, and hence the priority for EB2. When we all applied under EB3 (or erred by attorneys), we knowingly filed under EB3. Simple.

    Solution: 1) Wait 2) Port over to EB2 if possible 3) Just don't care, live your life in peace.

    Yeah, but the 5th item being demanded is the same as a free trip to the moon with out any flight training. In a logical and sensible world it will not work and will make this forum and organization look like have no motive or direction with every demand being considered viable., just beacuse it "sounds like a great idea" to a few folks.
    You will never change yourself. Please get out of this thread and we don't need your comments. Sorry to say this.

    I am looking for advice on the strategy for filing the third phase since the PDs for my wife and me have become current. My PD is Feb 2003 (EB2) and my wife's is June 2003 (EB3). My wife and I are on 8-th yr H-1B extensions with approved I-140s. Which strategy makes sense and are they even valid? The objective is to go with a risk-free strategy that gets us the GC in the quickest manner.

    1. I apply for I-485 (AOS) using my PD, with my wife as dependent. And my wife applies for I-485 (AOS) using her PD, with me as dependent.
    2. I apply for I-485 (AOS) using my PD, with my wife as dependent. And my wife applies for Consular Processing using her PD, with me as dependent. OR vice versa.
    3. Any other option?


    Counsular processing(CP) or AOS is determined according to individual situation. It depends on Job-stability, lot of factors. you should do what works for you after careful evaluation, not hedge your bets by doing 2 applications. Just do one way, either use your PD or your wife's and do one application for I-485. Whichever has the best chance with the lowest rate of RFI. whoever wants to stick around longer in their job (you or wife?) should apply, it will take a year+ for that person to stay in the job before final physical card and then 6 more months. Talk to your attorney.

    Hastert Deals Blow to Immigration Bill

    The Associated Press
    Tuesday, June 13, 2006; 7:57 PM

    WASHINGTON -- Hopes for a quick compromise on immigration were dealt a blow Tuesday after House Speaker Dennis Hastert said he wanted to take a "long look" at a Senate bill offering possible citizenship to millions of illegal immigrants.

    Hastert said hearings on the Senate bill should be held before appointing anyone to a House-Senate committee to negotiate a compromise immigration bill. Later, he said he was unsure what the House's next move would be.

    The Immigration Debate
    IMG ALT The Washington Post's coverage of the immigration issue, from the politics of revising the nation's immigration laws to the impact of illegal immigration on the U.S.-Mexico border and the Washington region.

    "We're going to take a long look at it," Hastert said late Tuesday.

    <sarcasm>Yeah, good idea. Lets snooze for 10 billion years.</sarcasm>

    Seriously, legals like us dont have any hope at this moment. Legals should be treated separately from illegals (or legals can wait for a miracle).

    We are spinning in circles here and it is like reinventing the wheel. This is THE grassroots org �THAT you want to set-up. already set up to achieve exactly that � YES, YES �We want Congress to introduce a bill to reduce backlogs. The core goal of IV is to have a bill that has our provisions. That is exactly what this organization was set up to achieve. You seem to be a newcomer to this struggle. Have you followed IV from 2005 Dec when a buch of members got together on some other forums and watched helplessly as good provisions (that were meant to allievate our troubles) were taken out at the last minute from a bill during debate.
    Since then we have tried and tried and frankly have matured enough to understand that the politics of the immigration issue is complex and any standalone bill �just for us- has no chance.

    Our provisions have to be clubbed with all the rest of the minor and major groups � that want reform. There is the nurses lobby, the doctors, the illegal lobby, the dream activists, and many other fringe groups, they all want their issues to be addressed. The anti-immigrants are a big opposition to any small relief that comes up in debate. NOW- We have learnt that we need to work with all these groups, form alliances and lobby hard to get a bill that has more support.

    If you go meet with your lawmakers you will understand that our issue is a miniscule little piece of a bigger issue of Immigration. And different varying and sometimes opposing groups have to be accommodated. The politics of immigration is convulted with different factions of the society wanting different things � Our little issue is straightforward and we enjoy a lot more support for our provisions, unfortunately we were clearly told that we have to be clubbed with these other groups when it comes to seeking a bill for reform. We are being held hostage also by the Hispanic lobbyists, that feel that if smaller bills come up and are passed, there will be no apetite for their bigger issue of legalizing a big core of mostly Hispanic illegal immigrants.

    FOR A RECAP- after this administration came into office �Jan 09- We had hopes and were promised that CIR (Comprehensive Immigration Reform) will be taken up, if that fails then smaller bills will be allowed to be taken up. If you have watched the developments carefully �There was never a time and a lot of groups including IV lobbied and lobbied hard to be heard and to get a bill but- the legislative calendar with so much other priorities had no space for any immigration bill this year. After the healthcare bill, Nobody has had any energy for a big controversial bill.

    Long story-short is YES, we want a bill (either clubbed with others) or amendments inserted into a bill- But have not been able to get it done.

    The reason for this failure is us- IV Members. We have not met our lawmakers in the numbers that are important to make an impact. We have to do it every month- building pressure to get a positive sympathetic response. Now some members (including yours truly) have gone and met our respective lawmakers more than 6-8 times in the last year, but that is again not enough, that is just 20-25 odd members compared to total IV Strength of 40,000members. It has to be an ongoing effort, just like the dream activisits have done, they meet with lawmakers regularly, highlight their frustrations and are open to media �giving interviews and keeping their issue alive in the limelight.

    IV has come up with specific recommendations for what we would like to see in a bill/s for our community. IV actively analyses any bill that comes up or has a chance to come up for debate. If you want to get your hands on that document, contact Anu or Pappu and ask for the IV_Advocacy package.

    We do have a paid lobbying firm that represent our interests and educates lawmakers. This is not enough, because during debates lawmakers behave as if they do not have highly skilled immigrants in their constituency and so do not have to pay attention. This is mainly IV members fault, since we have not been able to visit lawmakers offices in the numbers that we should. Our members need to show up at lawmakers offices and educate them. Tell them you live in their constituency and represent IV so that when the lobbying firm does their work, they are paying attention and our voices are not ignored or drowned.

    Individual members need to be open, honest, and courageous enough to talk to their lawmakers and media about issues we face. Just crying and debating on IV's website does not help. Talk about introducing a bill for us to your lawmakers � not here on IV.

    Very Good post.
    We salute your efforts in supporting IV, coming to advocacy days in DC this year, monthly contributions, volunteering and going for lawmaker meetings regularly in your state. If each one of us does this, things will be much different for our advocacy efforts.

    I know that females are disproportionately represented in these forums - even so.........I would like to see more women participate. Going forward, I will give $10 towards even female who signs up (upto 10 memberships). If you cannot find company, exercise with a cell phone and pepper spray on you.

    Girijas, thank you for your efforts to promote Team IV. We really appreciate your support and ideas!!!!:)

    All of your ideas are great ones for those who are new to walking/running!!

    PS - I run with a cell phone clipped to my shorts or to a fuel belt (when running more than 5 miles). Check out You can carry energy gel packs in the pouch on the fuelbelt and also your id and some cash if need be.

    I was wondering if any one in the core or other members think about the next step towards getting citizenship after passing the hurdles of getting the green card. If a person is here for 10 years and then get his green card (average period), then he need to wait for another 5 years to get the citizenship. 15 years for this process in a person's life is too much.
    IV Core can push or lobby for a law which can make the person a US citizen, if he is living in US for 10 years legally without any issues and paying taxes for the entire period. It is just my idea.

    I am surprised, but are you really a member of the "high skilled" community or are you just faking it to be on this forum?
    I don't think you should embarrass your self or your profession, though we do not know your identity.

    My wife and I went to DC in 2007, but we are not able to make it this time. We are giving you guys $200 to help somebody pay a for a flight. What's the best way to do it? Donating on the web site?
