    Hi

    I just spoke to a very nice IO. I asked about my name check , she said that it's pendig and FBI name check is 9 months behind the scheduale. That all the information she gave me.

    does everybody go through FBI check name or only a percentage?

    Everybody has to go through name check. A "small percentage" get stuck. Right now most of this forum is in "receipt mode". Let us wait for 1 more year to see how many scream " i am stuck in namecheck" . Just ask Indians/Chinese/Russians.

    Hi,

    I do not have medical records to prove that I have taken some of the vaccination that is mandatory for the medical test. However, I do have taken those and my Doctor back in India has those records. Is there a way people know that these records in "any format" / a "specific format" can be faxed or fedexed here and can be used?

    Any help will be highly apprciated.

    Background:

    It will be really great of we can get some or all of these requests are granted.
    I have some friends who had their GC in in 16 to 18 months from soup to nuts. They changed the jobs to some thing really entirely different and better yet they stopped working and started their own companies and recently naturalized as Citizens. So they only honored their intent to work for the same company for 18 months MAX and they are citizens.

    Where as many of us are working for the same company for YEARS together.

    Question :


    Since many of us have already fulfilled our intent to work for the employer many times over, why would we still need to get a job in Similar or same occupation to change ?


    I know we are now requesting them to change the definition of same or similar so that I can take a promotion in the same field. What about people who acquired different knowledge and want to put to use ?

    A friend of mine wants became proficient in photography and wants to become a professional photographer full time. He can't even in new case.
    Another friend got a MBA finance (currently working in IT) can't become a financial consultant or investment banker. But for the retrogression, they could have done what they wanted the second day after getting the GC.

    Did it ever occur to the core to request a relief so that , if you worked for the company in the job for which GC is filed for XX years (say 5 for example), you are no longer required to look for the same or similar occupation when you change the job ? (Because of the delay in approval of the case due to retrogression and you have already made good on your promise of working for the company.) .

    Or is it too much to chew ?

    PS : This is not to find fault with any one (person or organization). Let the ideas keep coming.

    I got the RFE at last. I invoked AC21. The RFE for me is asking for 2 evidences

    01. Why in Form I-693 medical examiner submitted x-ray but no skin test (we did it because we had the TB vaccination in childhood and skin test would come positive and we had to take x-ray anyway) ---Not an Issue, we can answer that

    02. Submit current dated EVL for your new employer. No issue. we can answer that

    For my wife also asking for 2 evidences:

    01. About the same medical issue.
    02. Provide her non-immigrant status between Feb 2003 to Jan 2004.

    I don't know what do. Looks like we are doomed. My wife came here with H4 in 2000, was provided I-94 from the airport for 3 years (till Jan 2003), we didn't know then that we have to file a I-539 extension for H4 extension (even couple of my friends had the same idea). We knew that as long as I am on H1, she would maintain H4. I came to know in Jan 2004 and then we applied for I-539. I know this is stupid but that what happened. Anybody has any experience please reply..please please. We are really sleepless this time.


    I personally know a friend of mine who did the same mistake. He was not aware that he will also have to file for his wife when he did an h1 ext few years back. Lawyer was also not aware that he was married at that time. His 485 is still pending in EB-3, so no idea what would be the outcome.

    They haven't mentioned there whether dependents are included or not. So multiplying by 2.1 is probably not correct nor wrong at this point. I would think dependents are included in this. Everybody needs to file an I-485 I presume and they are just counting the pending ones.

    Hi:

    My take is that this figure includes dependents. Dependents have SEPARATE I-485s and must be counted separately. The USCIS has said this this is the number of pending I-485s, so it does include pending dependent I-485s. They don't have to specifically mention "dependents are included,"because dependents do file separate forms I-485 when the primary applicant files his/her own. Thank you. :-)

    Absolutely unbelievable-
    Get this: A fingerprint check takes 24-48 hours but a name check takes upto 6 months!!! There are over 8 billion individuals on the planet, and how many have duplicate names? OK, now how many have similar names? And by the way, if you already have a fingerprint, why does name check take so long?

    Reminds me of the scene in the recent Simpsons movie, where the government guy jumps up and shouts "Woo Hoo, we actually found someone we were looking for!". The bromide goes that truth is stranger than fiction, but it should be amended to "The truth is more idiotic that fiction".

    Kerry said he will consider citizenship for >5 years. So there was some support for the idea in the political circles. We will just have to dust off those things.

    Just the other day I was dreaming that Obama will pass a rule that all those who are here in US legally for 10 years + will get citizenship....:):) Maybe I was dreaming too much...

    Hope that dream becomes true for many of us.....Keep this thread alive, maybe we can motivate the Congress to pass this rule.

    Guys,

    Thanks for your wishes. As much as I feel it as a journey I still consider myself lucky seeing so many people with PDs earlier than me both for EB2 and EB3 still languishing. We all consider FIFO to be fair and it is hard for us to decipher why it is not followed by DHS.

    My suggestion to you all is that if you are told that your case is with an IO ask him or her if an email can be sent to that IO that you are concerned. This is exactly what I told Janet on Friday, one of the good CSRs from TSC. I had told her that knowing a case is with an IO is of no help to me if that IO is on vacation or is sick or is not aware that the case is current.

    Also if you guys had followed my never ending streak of mails, I had mentioned that my wife had got a call from a CSR at DC probably in response to her SR that I opened or my concerned and frustrated mail to Napolitano...she was told that her case is with an IO and that since the case was transfered her Biom had not been uploaded and that she is ordering new Biom request and she should get it done...I had told her that by the time we receive it the visas may be over and also how come I am approved....moral of the story is "THEY KNOW NOTHING" as Jim Cramer used to say.

    The only person I found reliable was this Ms Beck at TSC who I was fortunate to get hold of exactly 2 weeks back and she had told that we don't need new FP and Biom it just needs updating by the IT dept and she is sending a request to that effect...I had asked her how long should it take and she had told me 2 weeks..she also told me you will get your card b4 your wife.....and she may be a bit delayed but will get approved.

    So guys from TSC keep trying and hope to get this Ms Beck...you can alway ask the person's batch number and name and don't waste your time if you get someone else.

    All the very best and hang in there...

    SoP

    Sometimes I wonder how these bozos get elected to office. These congressmen who misread the law, how can they get away with making such false statements over mainstream national media ? What is particularly appalling is , why haven't we heard any outbursts from media or other government quarters challenging his statements. What a mess...

    We should not let go of this.
    Being a congressman he should not misuse his first amendment to utter false statements.

    Dear congressman...i pity your lack of knowledge on H1B program and USCIS policies... We can help you understand better....Please do not make a fool out of your self.... I hope people do not look at you as a moron...and we wish you all the best in your political career.

    Addressing Employment-Based Visa Wait Times

    There have been a lot of comments and questions received from readers about employment-based petitions and related applications for adjustment to lawful permanent residence.

    This is a complicated subject, so I want to provide a little background. Becoming a permanent resident based on employment can require a number of steps, including obtaining a labor certification from the Department of Labor, receiving approval on a petition for alien worker from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) (Form I-140) and obtaining an immigrant visa from the Department of State or being granted adjustment of status from USCIS. In addition, by law there are numerical limits on the number of people who can immigrate to the U.S. each year in most categories. You can see a more detailed explanation about the employment-based visa application process online.

    Some readers have asked about the volume of employment applications and delays that have occurred in employment-based visa petition and adjustment application processing in late 2007 and early 2008. There were a number of factors that affected USCIS' handling of these cases during that time. Employers filed more than 234,000 petitions to sponsor foreign workers (Form I-140) as the Department of Labor cleared a large backlog of labor certification applications and implemented new regulations. Adjustment-of-status application filings also soared to nearly 300,000. We attribute the increase in adjustment application filings to a couple things. First, customers' anticipation of USCIS' filing fee increase in July 2007. Second, a unique opportunity for workers and their families to file adjustment applications based on the visa availability date announced in the July 2007 Immigrant Visa Bulletin. Many of these availability dates have since reverted, creating a backlog of adjustment applications that cannot be adjudicated until a visa becomes available.

    A few months ago, a customer indicated his frustration that while he can monitor the Visa Bulletin to see how it moves month to month, he still has no idea how many people are waiting in line with pending adjustment applications or how long it may be before USCIS can process and approve his application. We know this customer is not alone! In response to that customer's request, we are working to make this information available on our Web site.

    I understand the importance of becoming a permanent resident. I also recognize workers may rightly want to take advantage of the limited provisions in current law that allow certain applicants to change employers without affecting their ability to adjust status. As a result, USCIS has taken the following steps:
    USCIS has increased the emphasis on processing employment-based petitions. Our goal is to complete adjudication on the older I-140 petitions and to process newer petitions within our targeted processing time of four months. We are making progress toward this goal and anticipate reaching this goal by the end of September 2009.
    USCIS is issuing employment authorization documents valid for two years, as needed.
    USCIS is working with the State Department to make sure we use every available visa number. In 2007, we had more visas available in the family-based categories than were needed, so as permitted by law, we transferred those available family-based visas for use in the employment-based application process.
    I recognize that this is a difficult and complex situation and USCIS is working hard to make improvements and to increase transparency in our processes.

    04/25/2009: On-Going USCIS Efforts to Reduce Backlog in Employment-Based Immigration Applications

    Lately, I-140 and EB-485 applicants have been receiving envelopes from the Service Centers with their long-awaited approval notices, particularly those cases which were filed during and after the FY 2007 July Visa Bulletin fiasco period. Along with the development, information has been released by the stake-holder agencies of the Department of State and the USCIS indicating that there has been efforts on the part of the USCIS to eliminate employment-based immigation backlogs. In releasing the May 2009 Visa Bulletin, the State Department confirmed that the USCIS had been taking out EB visa numbers en masse exhausting all the EB-3 visa numbers available for the rest of FY 2009.

    This report is consistent with the information released by the USCIS on its projected processing time to four months for the employment-based I-140 petitions and EB-485 applications by the end of FY 2009, which is September 30, 2009. The goal appears to have contributed to the exhaustion of annually allocated employment-based visa numbers so that no EB visa numbers be unused or wasted by the end of FY 2009. The commitment to this goal of the USCIS is reaffirmed by yesterday's release of Mr. Michael Ayte's report on the employment-based visa processing times in the Leadership Journal of the DHS. Considering a huge backlog and processing delays in the employment-based immigration petitions and 485 applications for almost two years as affected primarily by the FY 2007 July Visa Bulletin fiasco, the recent event that evolved in the USCIS processing time change is certainly a welcome news for waiters who have suffered from the past backlogs.

    What have tirbuted to this change? The long-term strategy for reduction of processing times for immigration benefits applications appears to be launch of "Transformation Program" that intended to achieve reduction of processing times by turning current paper-based application and processing system into complete electronization system and process focusing on the concept of digital "account" databases within approximately a period of five years. However, this program has experienced a snag. However, lately the DHS disclosed its multi-billion dollar contract with the IBM for two programs. One is to convert all the existing files and date into digitazition and the other is to develop and implement electronic application and processing system. Reportedly, for this purpose, the IBM reenforced its operation in India and the work is underway. However, report indicates that the first phase appears to focus on the digitazation of existing database rather than implementation of electronic application and processing system. Overall, the goal of the contract appears to be completed in the next five years. It thus appears that the current efforts of elimination of backlogs within this fiscal year do not rely on the progress of this program. The big momentum was created by the Congress appropriating fund for USCIS human resources.

    gtThanks to the Congress action to give fund for hiring additional 2,000 resources, the USCIS recxruited and trained new hires who joined the USCIS field offices including Service Centers and local district and field offices, initially focusing on the job of elimination of huge naturalization applications. USCIS had been reporting that the hurdle for reduction of employment-based immigration cases was the mountain of naturalization applications that poured in around the time of FY 2007 July Visa Bulletin fiasco. Now, the naturalization application backlog is under control, inreased resources are becoming available for the employment-based immigration files. Another important factor that has contributed to the agency's recent move was the implementation name-check reduction agreement between the FBI and the DHS and the USCIS policy to complete adjudicaion of EB-485 applications when the FBI name check failed to complete within 180 days. The third factor that cannot be discounted nor minimized is the new DHS leadership's move and commitment for the elimination of the employment-based immigration case backlogs. As people may recall, the Secretary Napolitano of the DHS issued a directive to report the state of backlogs in the immigration benefit applications and the USCIS leaders plan for reduction or elimination of such backlogs. With all of the above developments combined, the employment-based immgrant community is continuously expected to witness the reduction of processing times, at least for a short term. However, long-term reduction or elimination of EB case processing backlog is likely to depend on success of the IBM contract digitization program of the USCIS. This needs continuing internal and external political support, and we hope that the Congress extends its strong support, particularly considering importance of the successful reengineering program to accomodate the potentially forthcoming avalanche and flood gate opening for case loads for the USCIS when the country passes the Comprehensive Immigration Reform legi

    Totally agree with you! This would be a fair deal. That how it should be done so let us do that. So when are going to implement this fair deal?
    I think it would be fair to split the leftover numbers the same way they split whole year quota.

    50% of leftover should be given to EB2 (based on PD) and 50% of leftover should be given to EB3. Does it sound fair?

    This is a real problem. I got a letter from a prospective employer, who wanted proof that I was legally eligible to work in the US (alongwith transcripts, previous employment letters etc.) prior to scheduling an interview.:cool:

    I believe employers are seeing a lot of candidates on EAD, and for whatever reasons they dont think EAD is good enough and would like to weed those candidates out beforehand.

    We need to fight back against this discrimination.:mad:

    Start writing to DOJ on the link americandesi provided if you are effected. Enough is enough.

    I have sent an email to CISOmbudsman.Publicaffairs@dhs.gov and they responded with the following email content.



    Dear Sir/Madam:



    Thank you for contacting the Citizenship and Immigration Services Ombudsman (CISOMB) in the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

    In order to review your case you must complete and sign the Form DHS 7001. The form can be found on our website at DHS | Citizenship and Immigration Services Ombudsman (http://www.dhs.gov/cisombudsman).

    We are attaching the form for your convenience. You may submit your form via-email as an attachment. In addition, please send a copy of I-140 approval notice. If you have an attorney please complete and sign Form G-28 as well.



    We appreciate your email and look forward to reviewing your case.



    Sincerely,

    Office of the CIS Ombudsman

    so I need to send DHS-7001 form and I-140 approval notice.

    I have one more question too, Should I send G-28 form also.

    Please give me some suggestions on this.

    Thanks in advance
    I did not send G-28 even though I have an attorney. I think that part is only if you want them to respond to your attorney rather than yourself.

    Here are the answers to line numbers 10, 11, etc...

    10 - Choose (b) and (iv) within (b)

    11 - Choose (b)

    13 - I chose (b) and (c) since I had done both of those things. You should choose accordingly.

    14 - I left this one blank because I did not want to involve the attorney

    15 and 16 - Just write your name and sign. Make all family members do this to avoid separate forms for each

    17 - Leave this one blank once again because it is only if you want them to respond to your attorney.
