    Lets just do that..cmon guys ..unity is strength.. the Brits should know that! if not lets remind them..
    It is not good disparaging the countries needing TV by calling them idiotic and asking for boycott etc. Please know that you are living in a country (USA) which is far worse than those "idiotic" countries in this respect since 2003. US needs C1 visa for transiting through its airports even when you have a valid VISA stamp in your passport to a destination country and you need to fill eqaully gruelling application (DS 156). Also you need to carry documents for travel purposes and financial support.

    I do received RD as July 2nd and ND: Oct 10 on RN. I am not planning to bug IO@NSC for EAD or NC untill Jan 2008 or I see my PD current per VB.

    I called yesterday and spoke to an IO at TSC.. she says I am seen pending for name check as of Oct 17.
    I am a July 2 filer.

    CAdude.. I have a question for you though.. Did your notices show receipt dates of 2nd July or different.
    I spoke to my lawyer about getting it fixed.. but they never responded to me back.

    *Happy Diwali*

    Why would they think like that?, USCIS made a mistake. They tried to cover (by making visas unavailable) their ass to save their jobs. Thats why we have congress to help us out.

    For USCIS its a bad publicity.

    We have congress "helping us out" by doing WHAT exactly?? So far we have exactly ONE congresswoman who made a statement. After that no one has even BOTHERED to do anything.

    It may be bad publicity for the USCIS, but guess what? NO ONE GIVES A S**T. The USCIS is an INDEPENDANT body and it made a MISTAKE. Everyone makes mistakes, remember?

    America will fly even higher with or without India and chinese those days are gone, look into the future. In the past not many american used to take science and Technology filed but now its different.

    I beg to differ on this argument: I am recent graduate from a top engineering school. In my class (class size varies according to the course, anywhere from 80-120)
    The only people who took engineering were ones sponsored by compaines like Boeing and Raytheon and that too they were always above 35.

    Of these in a class of 40, i would find one american. In my undergraduate courses, there would be 3 in 40. Of those atleast one or two would be pursing double degrees - Music and Science etc etc ..

    So... fact is that 95% of the american youth hates math and science in college. Just a look at companies in the bay area will tell you more.. most of the Americans in technology sector are all over 35. Very rarely will you find a fresh grad hired in these companies because they are not available.

    Do you belong to a state chapter?. If you have not joined a state chapter yet please let us know your residing state and we will direct you to the appropriate state chapter. State Chapter's can provide information related to all EB issues we are working on. Thanks

    Thanks! I am in Virginia.

    Thanks to needhelp for the reference.

    Is it advisable to include a reference to the Ombudsman report in the letter to the President? I am talking about the earlier mentioned reference on page 33 stating that "since 1994 there have been over 218,000 un-recaptured employment-based visas lost due to underutilization of the employment-based visas."

    My PD is 01/09/2007. Is there any chance to reach my spot in May visa bulletin? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.


    No. Not in May, but sometimes during 2011 the chances that Jan 2007 will be current is extremely good. Good luck.

    One thing i would like to emphasize like others, is background check when you apply for any company in future. Most good companies do a thorough check which includes your credit history. When i joined the company i currently work , I asked for a copy of the report for my reference and it did include that i have a good credit history. Not sure how much companies pay attention to this but yes if they do it could affect your employment chances at some of the top companies.

    On the positive side, I strongly believe that the economy will come back on track. Who knows 5-10 years from now your decision may look good. As others advised you should also consider renting out your place... With the population ever increasing, and the land being constant, I always think investment in land will always be a good investment on the long run. At least you have something concrete to show for your money :).

    Rest the feeling that you are doing the right thing even though its the hard way is always priceless :)

    Anyways i agree its easier to say these things sitting on the other side of the fence.

    Hope things work out the best for you.

    We are travelling next month and our travel agent wisely suggested and booked tickets for us via frankfurt by air india. He knows that london is a problem especially when you are coming back on AP.

    After reading thru the painful story of milind, I feel that I should never go thru london.

    congrats and thanks to those grassroot IV members who came up with this campaign. To be honest, I did not think that this would as successful as it turned out.

    Even though I was not affected by the July bulletin fiasco (my labor is stuck in BEC for the past 5 years), I was pissed when the USCIS pulled the rug from underneath.

    But, what a way to protest! Hats off to all those who participated!!! and a big salute to the The Mahatma:)

    Hey Bharatpremi, taking your numbers and assuming horizontal spill over instead of vertical would make eb2 all over current. total spill over from eb1 = 53807, total eb2 quota = 40040, pending eb2 = 74932
    assume eb1 demand = 5000, eb2 demand = 20000

    we can easily see eb2 getting completely approved.

    Its very very critcal that this things pass..else..EB-3 jump ship to eb2..to SOS

    It is unfortunate that people don't even try to understand the issue and just go about complaining it.
    Most people can't even differentiate between what is law and what is not. What are difficult things to accomplish and what are not.

    It is absolutely imperative that 5882 pass otherwise the situation will continue to exist.
    Here are the my estimated waits for EB3-I
    PD(end of the calendar year) and its corresponding wait in years
    2001 1 year
    2002 3 years
    2003 4 years (Bad economy in 2002 and early 2003)
    2004 7 years (Case surge in 2003 and 2004 due to booming economy)
    2005 8 years (fewer cases in 2005 due to PERM)
    2006 10 years
    2007 12 years
    2008 .....

    Another reason the companies give nowadays is "Unfortunately it is a government project and we cannot accept EAD status" - am baffled as to why they are OK with Green card and not EAD.

    Hello Logiclife,

    The information you provided is very useful. Will go look for David Heenan's book.

    Here is the book that I am trying to read - 'Flight of the Creative Class' by Dr. Richard Florida. Here is the extract from this book -

    Chapter 4 – The Closing of America? - Page 112
    The rejection rate of H-1B visas (also called “high-skilled visas”), which allow professionals who are not U.S. citizens to work in the country for up to six years, increased from 9.5 to 17.8 percent between 2001 and 2003.

    Chapter 4 – The Closing of America? - Page 117
    By 2003, antiterrorism measures began to catch up not just with visa applications but also with requests for more permanent U.S. residence. Thanks to delays in the processing of green-card applications, only 705,827 people became legal permanent residents that year, down from 1.06 million in 2002. This decline is the steepest since 1953, when Joseph McCarthy stoked fears that Communists were invading the government and general population. Nearly half of those affected by the government slowdown in 2003 were foreign students, workers, and others already residing in the U.S. and hoping to become permanent residents. Such figures may understate the extent of the problem-which were backlogged to more than 6 million by the end of the fiscal year 2003. Of these over 6 million people whose legal lives as residents were put on hold, roughly 3.6 million have had applications pending for more than six months.

    The practical, everyday implications of such a wait can be exasperating. Without a green card, many immigrants are prohibited from traveling, denied the benefit of in-state tuition rates, or even put at risk for job loss and deportation if the wait goes on too long. These risks accrue not only to individuals and families but to the businesses that hire them and need their skills.

    There is lot more to share but I am not able to put all this on the discussion forum thread. Will add more to this later.

    Here is the link to Dr. Florida's site : http://www.creativeclass.org/.
