    Definitely all of us are stuck in this retrogression. But it won't hurt to put this as a lower priority item on IV's agenda.

    As I said before, IV should step up for EB3-I/C/ROW cause since policies seem to be working in favor of other EBs (which is good) but EB3 is stuck..

    Here are some paths to consider.

    1. IV has established relationships with some key politicians through the advocacy days, may be that channel can work
    or
    2. Allow interfiling with spouse
    or
    3. Allow folks to file I-485 for an approved I-140 even if the dates are not current
    or
    4. Have an endless EAD and AP (by endless I mean 5 years)
    or
    5. Recapture (Tie it to a bill...eg Zoe Lofgren or Feigngold will not sign Finance reform bill unless lost EB visas are recaptured). It will help EB2 folks as well. Give Feingold a call, he is voting no on Finance reform. May be he can kick in something for legal EB folks (similar to cornhusker) and may vote Yes and be the 60th vote.

    What I suggest you guys to do is build upon these ideas above rather than destroy it or be sarcastic about it.

    They certainly need to consider joining other groups....
    Immigrationforamerica, immigrantlist, etc. Just tie up with a few politicization won't cut it, I think.

    Some relief, if they consider wait period is counted towards citizenship eligibility.

    This is good and healthhy discussion except for few who dont want to think beyond today's goal.

    As someone has listed already few advantages of citizenship.

    I would like to add that GC give you freedom in terms of the Emplyment and Residing in US. But it also has very strict criteria how you live in this country. You are no free with getting GC. Giving some points

    You need to carry your GC all times with you.

    You can be deported out of country if you dont report you forget to report your address changes.

    You can be deported out of country for very small crimes such as DWI, shplifting etc.

    Most of the states and federal govt dont emplyee non-citizens.

    Several goverment benefits are not available to non-citizens

    You can not be out of country for more than 6 months. And also not multiple time.

    You need to able to prove that you ahve permanent ties to this country all the time you travel outside. (irrespective of time frame)

    I am sure some other members can add lot to these points.

    So in nut shell GC and Citizenship are totally different.

    GC will just give you freedom from your employer. I am sure in long run you will also realize that your that freedom does not help you too much. May be a little bit if you are with consultant or IT field.

    There is no harm in thinking ahead and thinking about citizenship. Those who will be satified with GC, does not need to worry about this discussion as they are no more interested in this future benefit.

    Also there are lots of reasons that can be listed, why law makers will be interested in the advancing Citizenship benefit for HIGHLY SKILLED IMMIGRANT who is in the country for long time, has contributed to the Federal Taxes for five years, has good skills in STEM areas and has to suffer in comparision to Family based or marriage based applicants in terms of Citizenship. You can see recent advance of OPT for STEM graduates as small justifification for such hope.

    So lets continue this discussion, and comeup with good demand list and supporting justification , in terms of Citizenship benefit for highly skilled immigrants who get GC based on emplpoyment.

    Excellent. ^^Bump^^

    We EB3 folks are not requesting for EB2 visas. We all will be happy to get 50% EB1 spill over visas. The other 50% can go to Eb2s.

    right now 100% of EB1 spill over is going to EB2.

    Where were you for these many years when DOS was giving out all EB1 spill visas to EB3 ?

    Didn't you miss us ?

    Hi GCWaiter,

    Why do you suggest going for x-ray instead of skin test?

    Thanks.

    For Indians we had vaccination in India at our childhood. Due to this some will get positive results in the skin test. Then doctor is going to recommends for chest x-ray. Some of the doctor's are going to overlook this. Because the medical report is a sealed cover we don�t know what number he written in the medical examination form. You can ask the doctor.

    And one more thing is for skin test we have wait couple of days.

    From my experience I recommend others to go for x-ray. In my case my immigration doctor, he written 5mm as reaction for skin test. USCIS sent RFE on this to go for x-ray.
    I gone for x-ray and answered the RFE immediately.

    A chest x-ray is required only if the reaction to the TB skin test is 5mm or greater.

    Guys, Please do not ridicule saralayar. he has raised a very valid point. We are so involved with the GC issue that we are not able to think beyond that. I do agree with the fact that IV is so preoccupoed with GC crisis that there is no point (or bandwidth) to raise citizenship issue. I have seen so many of my friends who came with me in US 8 years ago and are citizens by now but I am still struggling with GC with no hope in site. Sometime, I think, by the time, I will get GC (if I), they will become sr citizen :) it feels very bad but cant help it.
    I agree. We could try for some reduced wait time towards citizenship for people whose GC applications are backlogged or those facing years of retrogression. A good starting point would be to write to Ombudsman with this suggestion. Although this is not an administrative fix it would be good to highlight this furhtur at Ombudsman level.

    Excuse me, but what's 485 got to do with assimilation? It would be perfectly legitimate for people who are waiting for their dates to be current, following the exact same logic as above

    People sometimes draw the line just where they themselves have just crossed it

    What about the people from EB3 who would be happy just with a GC ? Do we keep on rotting in 2001-2002 till we die ?

    For that one of these two should happen. Eb3 should move forward and Eb2 should retrogress.

    Or EB2 stays and EB3 alone moves forward.

    Or EB3 stays and EB2 has to retrogress so much (to 2001)!

    I guess chance for 1st and 2nd option are high. And, this would answer Ramba's question how EB3 for India would get approval for PD 2003. There are very few 2001 PDs left (per me). Relatively more 2002 and most of 2001 and 2002 are pending due to name check else they would have got their GC during July and USCIS would not have returned VISA numbers back to DOS nor some numbers would have finally got wasted (FY2007).

    So next PD would be 2003 (and there are very few 2003 filings that were filed before June 2007).

    why would EB2 retrogress to before 2003? It was at 2003 for a long time (8 months?). The only people still with PD of EB2 2002 are the ones just getting out of BEC, there cant be too many of them...

    I and manish flew monday morning sept 17th on a short notice to attend 11:30AM appointment and then again at 3:30 PM with nagaraj.
    We had 2 more appointments on 18th with NH senators.
    All the meetings were great and one them exceeded 30 minute schedule to 50 minutes.

    It was great to meet all the members like aman, jay, paskal, kanika, meenal, nagaraj, pappu, gopal etc.

    Paskal: Where is my beer?
    Gopal: "Don't shoot the messenger" in the situation room.
    jay: Speech pointing fingure to capitol hill behind him. "We are here on offence".
    Mike: Step1 to step 5 entertainment

    These are some, but not all, of the memorable things in DC.

    I really had to mention pappu seperately.
    He is a dedicated person to this cause and needs special mention. I really enjoyed his company in the bus on our return journey to NH. We shooted all possible questions and got convincing answers.

    Thanks again for the wonderful experience.
    It was a true vacation.:eek::eek:

    Folks if you want to know how to handle an interview... learn it from Pappu!! He was smooth (read slippery) as... soap?... hell anything that is smooth :)

    Pappu... any training you can give me? :eek:

    I may even be able to pay you... once you get your EAD! :)

    As another member said, please display the list of all members who paid.
    Also, to all the registered members in IV, why dont we send an email as a gentle reminder?
    The email can also include the list of members who donated/pledged to attend the event. That might motivate others to contribute atleast financially?

    My PD is not current... but based on the text in the current Visa Bulletin, I might be able to apply within next 3-6 month.

    Would it be an issue if I get the following documentation now itself :

    1) Birth Certificate and affidavit
    2) Medical Exam

    Thanks!

    I did a year ago, gave my US address. They entered the US address in passport. So now you loose your indian address as a proof :)

    Regarding H1-B, if your passport is stamped with Visa, I don't think notarized H1-B copy is required. Since the passport has a valid visa.

    Here is the most up-to-date list of people who have reported their issues with the audit delays:

    http://www.mediafire.com/?a3znd69ymyz

    I think its about time that we start brain storming the plan of action, I did like the idea of rally but that had its own Pros and Cons. We need more ideas coming from the people...

    I was thinking that we could draft a letter of request to DoL and have all the members sign on it to reflect the massiveness of the issue that Management needs to know - this is becoming a major issue in the EB immigration process. We could then write up a follow-up article for newspaper or even provide a copy of that signed letter to them. Any input to this?

    I have requested IV Admins to provide some input as well, but if you have any ideas please speak up!

    Here is what one of the IV administrators communicated to me:

    "In order for anything to be successful, it is important that we get as many people affected involved. Based on the number of people who wish to take part in solving the issue we can initiate a campaign.

    Pls let everyone know that IV can help them. We need everyone affected willing to help themselves by coming out and actively participating in a campaign."

    So please, dont disperse or lose hope, we need to gather more people to support the campaign, once started.



    Admins: I am unable to add the files as an attachment, even after making sure that the file size is under the limit. Am I missing something?

    Makes sense, like the idea of abolishing the waiting period for GC.... but with all due respect i belive that will never happen esp in a post 911 era where there is a lot of checks. I belive if they put the name check process in a fast track it would be benificial. Suks that we have to wait another 5 years after getting GC to get Citizenship, if anything i would think counting 5 years after 485 is logical.


    I think we should not talk about abolisihing waiting time for citizesnhip (after GC) and no one as I see talking that.

    Most of us are talking about REDUCING waiting time for Employment based GC holder, who is already here for several years.

    Most practical thing might be to make it Similar to Marriage based Citizenship where you just have to wait for 3 yrs after GC.

    So we can Request for reducing citizenship waiting period from 5 to 3 years for employment based GC holders who had paid atleast 5 years in the Federal taxes ( to preserve orignal intent of 5 year for family based GC holders waiting period for citizenship) , Have MS or Higher degree in STEM field ( Last time they tried to reduce one year for any one who can study and learn english) , Can pass Background Check and Moral Standards ( that is must for security purpose).
