    just presenting a possible reason why what paskal proposed in his post does not work well in IV.......its not a question of whether phone calls are important or not....its a question of making a significant number of forum stakeholders (and not 1-2%) get to act on any initiative......fund raising/ calling efforts etc....

    i genuinely believe that the core members go above and beyond whats expected to do what they are doing for IV - its truly remarkable...they all have busy lives and it takes great conviction and dedication to take the time out and do this...but why are the people still not responding despite the obvious pitfalls of not acting on GC related initiatives.......

    maybe its lethargy, inaction, indifference etc.......but we should be open to considering that just maybe, a vast and silent majority of IVians do not feel a sense of representation in the organization and hence do not react as enthusiastically as they should........legitimacy among the constituents often comes with representation

    why did most kingdoms around the world perish and give way to democracies......bcos the kings taxed the public based on their whims and fancies......elected govts may do the same but people still pay up and if they dont agree - they know they have a choice at the next elections.......

    and no, i dont deserve to be the CEO - neither do i have a performance track record nor credibility here......should not stop me from voicing a contrarion view though

    Thanks sayantan76! we already know that there is less participation from our members.

    Nobody here exactly knows why the participation rate is less. Some of reasons could be:

    i have my EAD, thats more than enough for me
    i am in my I-140 or PERM stage, why should i bother now?
    i don't think GC process is a big problem, i am sure i will get one day
    i don't care. I will sit and watch others do this for me


    I will not blame the core members. I understand their Vision and it aligns with mine. How do you enforce a vision in IV community when the participation is less?
    How can any action survive with 100-200 members participation? look at numbersusa and learn from their strengths.

    Having said that, i have a few suggestions though. Lets talk to our friends and relativies, understand their concerns/issues and communicate IV's vision to them in a better way and get them to participate.
    Lets set some intermediate goals to track our progress.

    Lets go IV

    Hope is ok. But IV core has more access than normal members like lawyers, lobbyists. So their view is important. Atleast interpretation of Memo need to known to the members. Also feasiblity of succcess, amount of effort and money need to be known to the members. I am seeing silent in most lawyer sites like immigration-law, shusterman, ILW. Everyone posted memo but no one really that much bothered

    I request you not to deviate from the topic. Lets hope IV core come up and support in this.

    Plus, to add to the complication, I've also confirmed ticket to meet them at Frankfurt on their way to US. My Euro vacation for a week would collapse and have to cancel everything.

    I'm try to keep myself sane. There are much worse situations people are facing in this forum ( for example, a ninth pregnant lady getting laid off).
    Just hoping (and praying) that this can be solved smoothly.

    There was a topic where googler had explained that as per DHS employee, unused Eb2 Worldwide goes to Over subscribed Eb2, so Eb2 India and Eb2 China.

    It appears that the policy was always this, but since there were no excess Eb1 in the last couple of years, there was no spillovers in the last 2 years, howeever this year there are higher number of unused EB1.

    In fact the way it appears is :

    EB4 unused ==> spills over to ==> EB1
    EB5 unused ==> spills over to ==> EB1
    EB1 unused ==> spills over to ==> EB2 world wide.
    EB2 Worldwide unused ==> spills over to EB retrogressed.

    So before any spill over to EB3, visas are given to EB2 category.

    Since the unused EB2 visas are given to retrogressed countries, I believe that more visas are used by country that has more retrogression. But if there is any future movement in EB2, than both India and China could experience it.

    From www.immigration-information.com forums, it appears that one of the important driving force behind the visa usage is the actual adjudication of cases from USCIS. Since generally USCIS does not really process enough cases to use all visa's(to ensure they are not wasted), every year there will be a need to have substantial movement in the cut off date to generate more demands for visa's, not just in AOS, but also CP.

    I am not even dreaming about my GC. I am just enjoying my life today, as i have no control over tomorrow. The irony , i was qulaified for EB2, but my lawyer didnt want to do an extra work(BS + 7 Years) , so he put me in EB3.

    Let EB2 get there GC's first , and may be the illegals also get it before EB3, I really dont know the point of discussion of this thread.

    Thank God somebody didnt write , thats its really unfortunate that we were born in India.

    UN,
    Have there been any updates on this case that you are at liberty to share?

    Thanks in advance.

    Ok, lets not confuse this case with Ability to pay and get worried about that stuff. I spoke to another person who contacted me and is having the same issue. His 140 was revoked 2 years back and at that time he got a NOID and responded in a timely manner and he was fine. Now he has a denial on 485 stating that his 140 was revoked 2 years back.

    This person is neither desi nor did he worked for desi consulting company or had ability to pay issues and has applied for MTR and waiting.

    All that float on internet is "indivisdual prespectives" and "interpretations". So do not think too much about it.

    AC21 guidelines are clear - you can refer to them on DHS website, Ombudsman's page, USCIS website etc....

    From what I have been seeing and as I did a lot of research and continue to do, 140 revocation and 485 denial does have a pattern and this seems to be a procedural or a serious training issue.

    Thats why IV core suggests that we have to collectively gettogether and fix this issue and any other issue.

    There is a spillover of 22000 visas from FB to EB starting Sep 01 2008. Does anybody know how this spillover is divided between EB1/EB2/EB3?

    Can we expect 28.6% of this spillover in EB3? Just like we get 28.6% of annual quota?

    Yes, AFAIK the FB spillover is added to the base quota and then divided between the ranks. At least I hope DoS and USCIS don't mess up with this calculation.

    BTW: Where were you able to find this information?

    A lot was said above but some basic things still need clarification.

    I do believe that I HAVE THE RIGHT to get my LCA adjudicated in 2-3 months time (OK, make it 6 months, having in mind you are dealing with an inefficient administration).
    I do believe that I HAVE THE RIGHT to know in short term (2-3 months, not 3-4 years !) if I am eligible for permanent residency.
    I do believe that I HAVE THE RIGHT to know how long (if approved) will take the I-485 process.

    These are clear, simple questions that require clear, simple answers. Getting these answers (NO is also an answer) in a reasonable period of time is a right, not a privilege...

    No I want the RIGHT to get my GC as soon as I land here on a H1B. They should give me the GC at the airport itself. I'm not waiting one day even. ;)

    Why do you jump the gun and reach conclusions??!!!

    All that was asked - was to write to the Radio station using their website. Who asked anyone to picket?!!! Re-read my post. I asked members to call up and ask hard questions challenging his credibility. We have nothing to lose by doing so. If we make him fumble, he stands to lose a good following.

    I'm part of that 10% that you're speaking about. Are you? Have you joined your state chapter? Did you march in DC? Are you a regular contributor?

    What's wrong in using Gandhi's name? Are you allergic to the great man?

    Any day a Gandhi quote is better than the - 'This can't be done. That can't be done. It's all in vain' statements, which are highly negative, demoralising and triter than the usage of Gandhi. At least Gandhi quotations are positive and uplifting. And we need that here to balance the pile of the negative statements that get posted.

    It's a promise. Until you guys don't get tired of posting your negative and demoralizing posts, we won't be tired of invoking the Great man's name. We know it's vain to invoke Gandhi to you guys. But still hoping against odds that it may affect you in a positive way. :)


    Well then why dont you picket against NumbersUSA, programmers guild et al too, i can name 20 conservative radio shows try emailing/talking them to change their opinion. I say this because i have emailed to a few and even tho they understand my point of view they will not change something that gets them ratings and propagates their cause.

    IV has 25k members, i guess 10% out of those are really motivated to participate and ready do something, if you start diverting your resources towards such issues your team will not have much motivation or people remaining when you really need them to do something. IMO

    Quoting Gandhi left and right is becoming pass� now, its like desi politicians, invoking Gandhi for everything. Try not to take his name in vain. (this is not directed at your post, i have been following your well written posts for a while. It a general comment after reading the forums.)

    First of all, this is a civil lawsuit not criminal. So, don't panic. It will most likely have no effect on your GC processing. Second fleeing to India is not an option. You could be in greater trouble as some have pointed out. Third, the amount seems too large for an usual accident case. What exactly are they demanding the money for? Bodily injury, disability etc.? These cases take a while to sort out in court. Talk to a competent lawyer immediately about your next course of legal action.
    On a second note, a friend of mine was also involved in this type of a case during his GC processing. The amount involved wasn't this large tho. Eventually they settled out of court and had no effect on his GC.

    As per my research, this restiriction is there for almost every one (Atleast the one i checked). BUt added advantage with ICICI ot tata AIG, of bajaj allianze is that medical emergency even if it is out of pre-existing conditions are covered. where as the insurance companies in the US do not cover them.

    I used ICICI for my parents. My dad had to use the insurance unfortunately. Due to his age (60 yrs) they paid only part of the expense, but i did not have to pay from my pocket except the prescription medicins.


    In another case, one of my friend had purchased insurance for his mother here in US, she was diabetic, and unfortunately her kidneys failed when she was in US. Insurance company did not pay anything, as it was due to pre-existing condition.

    There are advantages and disadvantages with both. You need to choose based on your condition.

    Hope this helps.

    Please remember that ICICI gives LIMITED coverage for anyone above the age of 56. It is mentioned in the "fine print". They have a restriction of say $1200 per day of hospitalization (not sure of the exact amount- but somewhere in that region).

    The same is true for TATA Travelguard

    It sounds like Comprehensive Insurance from a US company might provide the best "insurance"

    I think one thing we all can help is with clearing myth from American people mind that immigrants are hired on H1-B visa because they work for less $$. When few of my friends were hired to different companies, we all got lot more salary than American hired at same time for 2 reason: MS and education background.

    Also, it cost company a lot of money to Sponsor H1-B for its employee. So if immigrant is hired, he/she was the most suitable and required candidate (Atleast at that time).

    I think we need to work towards clearing this concept from American people mind for favorable wave for legal immigrants.

    Hello,

    If your parents have bad health, then its a risky trip anyways .. but if they are in a reasonable health, then most insurance plans (except the super cheap ones) should be fine to cover any emergencies .... I have used k v rao insurance couple of times (but never had to make a claim) ...

    There are always bad stories about claim process, but that is just the nature of Insurance industry (had such experiences with my employer insurance as well ... despite it being a Fortune100 company with generous benefits)... so choose your poison! :)

    CONCLUSION: It is concluded that the grounds stated for denial have been overcome.

    ORDER: It is ordered that the motion to reopen be approved. The Form I-485 is "pre-adjudicated" awaiting visa availability."



    Congratulations, and that is probably the most 'relieving' MTR approval message ever.

    I am not able to start and feel that there is already hidden membership is there. Is there any thuth in this feeling? How does IV is working in terms of access rights?

    IV is already not member friendly. With 25,000 members, raising 30,000 is getting so difficult. Why so? I once posed the question and moderators conveniently deleted it.

    anyone can start a thread, if you need help doing it, you may wish to ask politely and someone will tell you.

    why so? ask yourself. read your own comments. and let us all know how you have helped the process of ending YOUR retrogression.

    i have reviewed every post you ever put on iv. i don't see any deleted post.
    so you may want to think again. hardly anything is deleted around here. otherwise a lot of intemperate stuff that's posted would disappear.


    ultimately it comes to this: if 25,000 members show no interest in contributing in a fund drive (barring the minuscule 500 who did), what's the point in being "friendly". hey- iv is you and me. there is nothing else. no building, assets, stocks. I or aman or pappu or logiclife and every other core member and iv leader are just like you. we have jobs and families to take care of. we are afflicted by immigration retrogression- like you.
    we have put in time, money and effort at great cost to our personal lives. i wish i could "like you" to that one too.

    if "members" are willing to make this their organization their own- if there is to be this sense of involvement and ownership, then we will succeed. if not, if the attitude for the most is going to be "why should i" and "nope i am not contributing" and "how dare you ask" and "i have free speech" and "why doesn't iv do xyz for me" and "why should logiclife use this and that tenor" and "why did abc say def to me" and "i demand respect" and the best "these are my 2c but don't ask me to lift a finger to do this- iv should do this" then forget it. won't happen. because that IV you are imagining doing wonders and making miracles is YOU.

    let me take this opportunity to thank everyone that participated in the fund drive, joined state chapters, met lawmakers, took initiatives to start state groups, ran the funding threads and contributed in any other way.
    you are guys are true assets to iv- in fact you are the true iv. kudos to you!

    is not right.

    The hardships we have chosen to enter united states and struggle here is of our own choice. It was an option. You can come to office at 9:00AM and leave by 6:00PM. No body asks you to stay late unless you work for a consultant. No body asks you to relocate unless you again work for a consultant.

    You could easily get a legal immigration if you opt an easier path 'Marry a local'. So, again you have opted a hard way of going through labor certs, I-140, I-48 etc.

    We all have options and it depends what you choose.
    Just because few centuries ago someone entered this promised land just like that, you can't expect that to be existing now or atleast a modified version of it now.

    Again, i believe the immigration system can be improved only if senators can taken into confidence about our hardships. Striking the way illegal mexicans did and or raising slogans like 'immigration is a right and not a privillege' may play against us.

    just my 2 paise.

    As mentioned In Logiclifes first post in this forum,
    Organizations who have Millions of dollar In budget for pushing and lobbying their Issues failed also for whatever reason ( He did not mention reasons ).
    Does that mean that having a fat budget does not Impact the outcome ?
    What It proves Is Its really the Politics, election, People's focus on the Issue which matters and NOT the lobbying with big fat budget.
    And If its the case then our issue will be taken care of on its own merit when all above factors are in our favour, regardless of lobbying.

    Just a thought, I hope I am not upsetting the general trend of praising efforts.

    It was thru lobbying (on which contributions were spent) that we got provisions added the the Senate's comprehensive Immigration reform last year. Without lobbying, all that would not have happened. No other group, industry, company or organization was working to remove the hard cap on country quotas in EB immigration. It was exclusively by IV and QGA's efforts.

    Under certain circumstances , like the ones that existed last year with Jim Sensenbrenner as the House Judiciary Commitee chair , yes, even 10 million dollars spent in lobbying in one year cannot achieve even the smallest amount of law-change or regulation. No matter how you approach things, you cannot bypass House Judiciary committee regarding immigration provision. And you cannot bypass the chairman of that committee.

    However, things have changed significantly this year and that is why every effort done this year will make a difference. Biggest portion of the effort is lobbying and it can work if its given time and done patiently. And yes we do need contributions for that.

    We can always convey that the amounts can and will be adjusted based on need. But let's set a target. Disclose the goals. Not the exact dates and times and the kinds of meetings being attended nor do we need a detailed daily report of how the money will be spent. That is micro reporting and I think we all trust IV enough to know that the money is being well spent. All targeted funding drives help us do is plan better and focus better.

    Let's be vigilant and worry about the things we can worry about.

    Getting a little philosophical:
    I agree with you that the outside world is cruel. But the journey's been alright till now hasn't it. I was a huge supporter of the Gandhigiri campaign and was one of the primary reasons why I got involved with IV in the first place and am proud of it. We need more voices and more participation.

    This is good news..But the Damage is already been done..in the past.....

    I guess DOL had some 300K cases pending when Backlog center started..It adjudicated some 150K till now.( Rough Estimate) and still 150 K left.

    Even if considering 10000 Labors been substituted till now ...Imagine the wait period for rest of us. I wish this law was enacted, when they started Backlog centers..

    Anyway..something is better than nothing....Hope for the Best...for new laws regarding SKIL,CIR Etc..atleast filing 485 when Visa numbers are not available..

    --gcdedo
    These are small regulations that agencies can do. But even for such changes, the time period to get it done is very long (several months to a year). At least DOL woke up and acted. It will still leave a door open for sellers to stay happy and able to substitute labor. However it is not easy to find a buyer of a LC in 45 days.

    All these are small problems compared to retrogression. Labor substitution rule will not get any visible or any noticeable relief to us. We will continue to stay retrogressed and wait for another 10-15 years for our greencards. It is important for us to contnue to fight to end retrogression by getting a legislative change done. As long as members are there to support IV, the organization will use every means to get relief measures for all of us. The coming months are crucial to our struggle. We need to stay united and continue the effort of making this organization a formidable force on the hill. IV members writing negative comments on various forums or feel disheartened should know that to get even a smallest job done is not easy. They are not only harming the whole effort and making anti immigrants happy, but also harming themselves by hurting this cause. Sometimes it is sad to read such negatve comments when you know how hard it is to work with limited time, resources, manpower and lack of much needed motivation in members.

    BTW In our recent efforts we did give anti-immigrants shivers down their spine. It can be seen from their posts on their sites and also the hate mails they write on our forum and send to core members. You dont see a lot of it because we moderate posts. We are not scared of anyone. All this has only made our resolve stronger to fight it out and fix the system.

    Does the SKIL bill apply only to MS, or MBA too ?

    There is no such thing as a CP and an AOS bulletin. There is only one official visa bulletin every month issued by the DOS's Bureau of Consular Affairs. The input for that comes from the Consulates all over the world who process CP applications and the USCIS which processes the AOS applications. But, both USCIS and the Consulates abide by the same visa bulletin which gives the cut-off dates for priority dates.

    exactly. People started to take pain to see CP dates that's why those terms appear loosely on this thread. ANd everybody here understand that... so do not worry.

    dear mr. "audience",

    one more "highly skilled" immigrant thinks she/he is "audience".... "audience"!!!! nice

    life is going waste in gc backlog but .... "audience", oh and someone forgot to ask, while you are watching this movie titled 'my life is being wasted in gc backlog'.... would you like to get some popcorn and coke with it..... why? because that's what "audience" do..... they enjoy the game and movie when someone else is doing something..... but the "audience" sit on the sidelines and watch

    you seem to very much enjoy this movie 'my life is being wasted in gc backlog'? with your kind of star cast it has got to be a grammy winner... thank you mr. "audience" for the wonderful performance.... time for you to speak out your garmmy winner speech, and don't forget to thank all the people on that list.... aila aila aila aila aila aila, and btw, and whom are we forgetting, did you miss out aila


    I 'm not sure if you are trying to be funny or sarcastic, but you fail miserably at both.

    This shows that the backlog is more than the numbers on USCIS website. People need to stop wasting time on tracking and spend time in their office work. Backlog means more business money for lawyers and trackers. IV is very small. Unless IV had hundreds of thousands of members, they cannot do lobbying like AILA or Microsoft. EB3 India and now EB3ROW is in a pitiable state. All those EB3ROW who used to be happy will now see the reality. Thank god I ported to EB2 but the dates for EB2 do not move enough. I think anyone who can should port to EB2 ASAP. This is the only solution.

    I guess it has less to do with estimates, and more about looking at the landscape. If there are significant portion of responses are above your date, one might, for example, choose to initiate porting/reclassification process if one qualifies for it.


    Good thread. I am wondering the reasons for lack of response between Jan and March of 2002.

    I am wondering the same for 2002 applicants. I wonder if many people were approved in 2007 fiasco and if yes, then why PD is stuck at Nov 2001?

    Hope is ok. But IV core has more access than normal members like lawyers, lobbyists. So their view is important. Atleast interpretation of Memo need to known to the members. Also feasiblity of succcess, amount of effort and money need to be known to the members. I am seeing silent in most lawyer sites like immigration-law, shusterman, ILW. Everyone posted memo but no one really that much bothered

    If you don't have anything to add to this thread, can you please go away? You are really not saying anything we don't already know.

    Rather than pushing for Bills which will pass only after we get a GC, why don't we ask for something more practical. I mean ask for minor policy changes rather than asking for major law changes.

    Like,

    1- granting EADs to all who have completed I-140,
    2- reducing the timeframe to apply for AC21 from 6 months to 3 months,

    This will solve a lot of people's immediate problems.
    There are many people who couldn't get their status readjusted due to retrogression after filing I485, but could get EAD atleast.

    What does that mean? It means by law only a certain amount of GCs can be issued in any year, but USCIS may issue more EADs based on one of their policies.


    Well said Dan19.
    I am barking for the same thing for n number of times.

    Lets start writing to all the supporters once again. HIghlight housing crisis, also can request premium processing for 485. Make sure we show the immediate and long term benefits. As somene noted, tell that to keep people when they are young enough and not to drive them aaway with their citizen children only to return when they are all 50-55+ of age, with more chances to depend on SSN, than to contribute

    In my view H1B problem is directly related to Retrogression problem. Lets step backwards and analyze this.

    Why so many GC were applied at the first place that caused retrogression. Because a large number of people came on H1B to US. All these people who came to US on H1b did not actually had any extraordinary skills. These people somehow got in touch with these Desi Consulting companies and came here without any skill and without any projects. These desi consulting companies applied there GC irrespective of the fact that these guys have a job or not. Some of the people I know have sat on bench for years, living with their relatives, unable to get any job. But they had their labour filed. These knid of people would not have made to US, if these fadudent companies were not there.

    Also big companies, have a policy not to apply GC before one year of service. The point was that these companys will file GC only if they feel that the employee adds value to the company. But with these desi companys people have filed GC even before joining the companys.

    In essence if the GC process was working without these Desi companies, I can bet that the number of GC applied would have been much lower than what have we currently have.

    Substituted labor has further added to this problem.

    I cannot agree with u more. Exactly what I want to say.

    Guys there is no doubts if you have an opportunity like where employer is paying for the Green card process, I guess everybody should get out of the EB-3 mess. If you stay in EB3-I then you are the last one to get the VISA. If you port it to EB2-I then you put EB3-ROW behind and you get in line first in EB2-I bcoz you will have older PD.

    * AILA�s Business Litigation Comm. Re: Neufeld memo*by*H-1 Cap Blog (http://www.h1cap.com/?p=121)
    The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) has a Business Litigation Committee (BLC) and we met this week and the hot topic of discussion was the recently released Neufeld memo. There is a strong belief that the memo was issued in violation of the Administrative Procedures Act. There is also the belief that the memo violates long-standing precedent and established law. It is believed that there are numerous industry groups as well as individual companies that may be pursuing litigation on this matter. The BLC is in the process of working with the American Immigration Council to create a special section within its clearinghouse service http://www.legalactioncenter.org/litigation-clearinghouse (http://www.h1cap.com/blocked::http://www.legalactioncenter.org/litigation-clearinghouse) specifically dedicated to collecting and posting relevant documents and information on this issue. This will allow all interested parties to be kept up to date on efforts being made to address this policy. We are looking for information regarding actual litigation as well as significant meetings, letters, etc. to USCIS officials as well as Congressional members on this topic. We will then organize the relevant documentation and make it available for access by others. If you are interested in participating in this clearinghouse effort, please keep us updated on your efforts. contact mfh@hammondlawfirm.com for additional info.

    Any update on this? Any legal update?

    It seems no one is talking about this memo anymore.

    Guys:

    Since we are looking for options....Maybe we can help each other grow technically...possibly by the time we get our GC. Then we could start a company, which will have satellite office across the USA. Then get Vinod Khosla to provide Venture Capital.....:) :D

    So to start the process of helping.....here is what I can offer....I am Elect Engg grad from IIT, Roorkee, got my MBA from Kansas and have a PMP, which I got in 1999. Last Year I was elected the President for the Local PMI (Project Management Institute) Chapter in Michigan. ......So if any of you need any help on project management or getting a PMP, I could at least guide you what needs to be done. Please send a private email to me and I could help you enhance your skills in Project Management.

    I have been waiting for my GC for almost 10 years. During this time I have managed to trust in God. I continued to increase my education and increased my business network during these years, which has helped me increase my "Face Value" in the US Market.

    Here are some suggestion...-Try getting involved in Non-Profit organizations in US or India or possibly go help somebody. Trust me there is more to life than Green Card......I remember asking a friend of mine what was his reaction after waiting for GC for 8 years and then getting it.....He did not have a positive answer.

    So when GC will come, it will come....Increase your education, give back to society (maybe help some of your old neighbours who do not have a way to get around), maybe you want teach (Free) math or science to a student in your downtown area. When you look around you will see many people are waiting to be touched by you, through the talents that God has given you......

    So keep moving...do not sit back....do something.....A small pool of water will become a swamp, since it does not move, while a river which is flowing swiftly will reach its destination...

    Keep fighting the GC battle!!!!
