    You still did not get it. Without evidence of discrimination it would be difficult to fight against...

    I think we can continue arguing this till we are blue in the face. We already have like 8 pages of discussion on this. I never had an employer pre-screen me on immigration status, doesn't mean it never happens.

    We have immigrationvoice1, chandu, BharatPremi who feels they have been discriminated against based on EAD. We can collect more stories and bring it to the notice of the govt. Everyone who have been discriminated can and should also go ahead and file a complaint individually.

    Let the govt decide if they can pursue based on what evidence we have. Lets not keep on discussing what the outcome will be. Lets try to do what we can.

    If anyone (and I am not pointing a finger at BharatPremi) doesn't feel anything can be done, fine move on. Other who see hope, lets take the first step and inform the govt.

    There has been some requests for the letter format that I sent to Napolitano and Mr. President. I can't put them in the public domain but I'll be happy to send them if you give your personal email ids.

    Yesterday was a very eventful day for me...in the afternoon my wife got approved and 12 hours later we had to call in emergency 911 to take her to the hospital as she was having such strong chills and violent shakings..we all got scared and we have a 2 and half month baby on top of that.....but with strong dose of antibiotics and drips she is better and back.....wow what a day and night.....

    In any case I'll answer all your queries....I feel the option 4 is the best way to get to TSC...I have always used that....congressman's office has discretionary powers and you should use that.....use strong words it is your right......they are here to serve you unlike in India where they are there to get pocket your money....no pun for my motherland but unfortunately it is true....

    Try a time frame of 4:30-5:30 EST to call the TSC or NSC for that matter...ppl are in a better mood at the end of the day and on thursdays and fridays.....ping your lawyer and ask him or her to intervene......if you know for sure your case is preadjudicated write it strongly in your mails to DHS and others.

    I had in fact attached the previous year letters and their responses back to me in my last mail to Napolitano and it was really quite strong.....I am sure it is hard not to take a note of it......I don't mince words and I believe that one should fight for one's rights....

    I have been associated with organizations like ASHA, AID and DISHA for long and that have taught me a lot too.............

    Again your attitude should be "You have nothing to loose"...so make a best case for yourself and go for it...

    no, the idea is; if you cry for gold you will atleast get silver. When the point is raised that people have been living here legally, paying taxes, ss, owning houses etc etc for 10 years!! What more is actually needed for citizenship?? The idea is to highlight that legal residents (many of them) have been here for ever!! 10 years is almost 15% of an average life span!! If only this thing is highlighted in some strong news papers. Isn't this protectionism at its worst. Us is complaining about labor laws in china???? What the heck is this here??? You pay taxes and ss and medicare etc for 10 years and then you are asked to leave??????????? Isn't this slavery??? Either take of the requirement that workers on visas have to pay the required ss / medicare etc or assume responsibility for having taken their hard earned money and let them in as soon as possible into the society.

    somebody with skills in finding out stuff should research on how much money per year is contributed by the working h1b employees and given the numbers that are sent back how much is actually "stolen" from them. I once again say "stolen" from them. If they are sent back they should atleast be entitled to all the money that was "ilegally" taken from them.

    This is not good news. We dont know what happens in the next few weeks. Immigration is not a very high priority for everybody. The closer we go to elections the more the chances for other issues to creep into schedule. I hope they will atleast attach unused VISA numbers to some bill and tackle the immigration beast when they intend to.

    01/24/2006: AILA Reports Push-Back of Senate Comprehensive Immigration Reform Debate Schedules

    AILA reported last week that the Senate Judiciary Committee could start immigration reform debates as early as February 2, but now it reports that the Senate Committee action on immigration legislation may be pushed back until later in February or perhaps into March.
    There are a few immigration portals in the community that monitor and share opinions and news on the comprehensive immigration reform legislation. The following three sites are particularly helpful: www.immigrationvoice.org, www.isnamerica.org, www.immigrationportal.com.
    We will post the summary of the pending comprehensive immigration bills shortly. Please stay tuned

    OP Do you know how many L1 visa types are there???

    Who said L1 can't be at claient place? Who said L1 can't do programming?

    Don't spit on other community becoz you are loosing some thing...

    Blanket L1s

    L-1A - Managers (lucky ones eligible for EB1), offlate not abused much as L-1A visa petitions are scrutinized well by USCIS (lot of RFEs).

    L-1B - Speciality Skilled ones.. MOST ABUSED category of L visa... petition for these resources would be for a internal tool / custom product and they tell the same during consulate interviews BUT mostly gets deployed to consulting assignments. For Eg. A java programmer would have a petition which talks about a custom product / internal tool where programming language would be java once the visa is stamped these resource would be placed on Java project which has nothing to do with his petition and HENCE THE VIOLATION.

    Blanket L1s - Blanket petition for a large group of resources from a company ... now a days USCIS & consulate doesn't allow these companies to use this category as they found this was one of the most abused category. Once again the process of sending these resources to other projects remains the same once the visa is stamped.

    ALL THE ABOVE VISA categories are banned from either

    1. Working on a client managed project (staff augmentation purpose).
    2. On any technical skilled projects other than the specific internal tools/products mentioned in their petitions (both when client/their own company manages the project).


    Approved L1 petition is the final word in deciding what kind of work the resource can do here in US... not outsourcing companies greed.
    Hope your doubt regarding the L1 visa categories is cleared.. I'll give the details of how these outsourcing companies work and how to bust them by reporting to ICE/USCIS in the next post.

    Trend chart doesnt give you shit...its just an overall count
    I am referring to the PDF report - which clearly mentions that the numbers are for pending Employment based 485 applications. And yet people refer to this report and ask stupid questions or over-analyze it...

    It seems like you are smarter than others or may be you have more insight.
    How come total pre-adjudicated in the chart is exactly equal to total I-485 in the pdf ?
    What exactly total in chart tool means ?
    You might be convinced that you are right but stating that others are asking stupid questions is little too far.

    Lets do another flower campaign to wish get well soon to SunnySurya and Rooling_flood.

    Get well soon Mamu...

    If you look at the profile of the members who voted yes in this poll. They all have EB2 PD from June 2006 to 2007 except one or two. These guys will never understand the wait of a 2001 or 2002 filer. They dont know what it means to wait in limbo for years.

    Can you guys who voted yes please share your qualifications and the kind of work you are doing?

    The USCIS calls this efficiency. I wish these folks to be on the receiving end of their own treatment in their next life.

    Dear Alterego,

    What do you think we are? We were INS officers in our past lifes and troubled all these Chinese and Italian immigrants. That is the reason, why we are born to take back what we gave them in past life.

    Without legislative or administrative reform, EB3-India would be reduced merely to a mechanism which folks would use to extend their H1Bs indefinitely on the basis of the underlying I-140, or a means to lock a priority date while they plan their strategy for an EB-2 petition for a PD port in the future. As some analysts have predicted, EB3-India wait times might get extended to decades without some sort of reform. Not to make light of the situation, but for an EB3-I applicant with a recent PD, the odds of getting a green card through a US-born child (once they turn 21) could become greater than through their own EB application.

    "interfiling" to use old EB3 PD for new EB2 is not the easiest path for EB3-I guys specially if they have used AC21 and work on EAD now ( Most of us are in this category). Priority date porting is not an issue, USCIS does not have a problem with that. The problem is with "Job definition and level". While one use AC21 claims job position matching EB3 job classification and if there no enough progression gap between AC21 usage and "inerfiling" It becomes hard for a lawyer to convince USCIS that fellow is matching EB2 capability under same job classification. Hundred of such intefilings are waiting without no action from USCIS. My lawyer's advice wait till we logically can establish the skill progression, in other words minimum 3 years of wait from the day AC21 usage. And other important thing is "real promotion" in position should happen at employment and this whole explanation is based on assumption of employment at the same employer. If you change employment inbetween after AC21 usage and before interfiling , your 3 years wait cycle starts from new emploment date. I have not filed "interfiling" just because of these reasons and waiting for correct time to do that. In other words Eb3-I is really and badly screwed.

    My labor was filed in July 04 on EB2, but approved under EB3 category only. My attorney contacted uscis to with the amendment saying that my LC should have been approved under EB2 category. Finally, got a letter from uscis in Feb 2007 that my LC was approved under EB2. Could that be the reason that I did not get GC yet even my PD is current.
    Please contact IO using POJ method or send a follow up email to your service center asking about your PD and categorisation. Once you know what is in their system (EB2 or EB3 ?) , then you can follow up with them to rectify it.
    AFAIK, in inter-filling,applicant has to do lot of followups to get correct PD on their file.

    And their news page has also changed to reflect this "modest" movement (previously it stated - "the movement will not be weeks or months but could be years")

    On both extremes, it's nothing but just an attempt to generate traffic to the website I guess.

    Interesting that he claims - the modest movement will be because of the 7% country cap. In my understanding, it does not apply when spiilover happens (plz correct me if I am wrong)

    Yes you are right ..

    Country caps are not followed or implemented in spillover visas. Why do you think EB2I moved to May 2006 last year July 2010

    Yes, because there was no other way I could rack up 2300 minus points. I find this game as silly as it is irritating, but letting them know it doesn't work with me anymore. Yeh unka bachpana ka nishana hei.. They're just being kiddish

    You are kidding right. I currently has - 20,000 points. So that would mean 20 k IV members did not like what i stated and yes that is 20 k within a week :D:D:D

    With the June visa bulletin, my priority date became current. My Labor and 140 already approved. When can I apply for I485? After May 31 or before May 31.

    Thanks for your help.

    So per your theory 8008 people who filed in Eb3 should get approved which should bring it to 2003? for EB3-I by end of year? :rolleyes:

    EB3 india gets only 2803 per year with350 of those going to OW. How did you arrive at the figure.

    Excellent suggestions & ideas Leo. You have summed up well where we are headed. The some of the arguments you mentioned above are really very good. We will definitely use them when talking to lawmakers. With regard to the problem with the attached file, I just sent you a private message.


    03-10 12:11 PM
    VERY GOOD START. Thanks. Atlast, I am getting lot of positive comments and thoughts about the Citizenship. Let every one start working on this. Please post your response from your Senetor on your call.


    Good job in creating the thread. Around the time when you started this or little before I too created one more asking Citizenship (I'm sure many more might have, too), but I would like to push your thread just to not divert attention to too many spots.

    We will make next week as a "WEEK OF ACTION". If you see my other thread ("can we send Pizza" thread) and many others, the common routine is to get many good ideas, but not much action.

    We will gather as much support as we can till this weekend and at the same time make sure we consolidate the contact information at one place who to contact, and then starting next week, we can start sending out our message as loud as we can.
    We must push for 5 years GC and 10 years Citizenship. I know how much painful it canbe for someone after 11 years waiting for GC, wheras others with 6-7 years in US applying for Citizenship. Not that they got it, but why we did not get it.
    And we will focus on points how we can contribute in this crisis.

    Others who are directly not benefited by this action:
    Please note all your seniors will be out of the queues and you will get your numbers faster.
