    That means we have lost around 2,40,000 unused visas. I heard that there is a total amount of 3,00,000 unused employment visas of the previous years due to the great efficiency of USCIS. Out of this 61,000 is kept apart for Schedule A nurses and PT's and the remaining 2,40,000 thousand would have been divided amoung employment catagories if the amendment had passed,clearing lot of our backloggs.


    Its the high time we convince the senators who said NAYS. Lets start SOME KIND OF CAMPAIN aiming these guys. I am sure that core's hands are there behind this amendment. Well done IV. Don't get dissappointed, keep trying for Skill bill or for similar amendments. Its really unfortunate that we lost a very very big chance. Lets do something immediately.

    Following is the text of amendment.

    `(ii) DISTRIBUTION OF VISAS.--The total number of visas made available under paragraph (1) from unused visas from fiscal years 1994, 1996 through 1998, 2001 through 2004, and 2006 shall be distributed as follows:

    ``(I) The total number of visas made available for immigrant workers who had petitions approved based on Schedule A, Group I under section 656.5 of title 20, Code of Federal Regulations, as promulgated by the Secretary of Labor shall be 61,000.

    ``(II) The visas remaining from the total made available under subclause (I) shall be allocated equally among employment-based immigrants with approved petitions under paragraph (1), (2), or (3) of section 203(b) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (and their family members accompanying or following to join).''.
    (b) H-1B Visa Availability.--Section 214(g)(1)(A) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1184(g)(1)(A)) is amended--

    (1) in clause (vi), by striking ``and'' at the end;

    (2) by redesignating clause (vii) as clause (ix); and

    (3) by inserting after clause (vi) the following:

    ``(vii) 65,000 in each of fiscal years 2004 through 2007;

    ``(viii) 115,000 in fiscal year 2008; and''.

    I will be leaving for DC in a couple of hours. Need to pack, get gas tank full, and decide what clothes to iron and ton of other mundane things. Thanks a lot to all those people who participated in this 401K round. If you found these shots, guns and jokes etc. amusing, thank you for your support. If you think it was silly, I appreciate you, for keeping those thoughts private.

    So here is my final shot for all the people who contributed for the first time, those who contributed again, to all those who were motivated, to all those who were amused and most of all to the people who are going to DC.

    I usually don�t share my private life. But just to let you know, I postponed my foot surgery on Friday so I can attend this rally. (First and last time on this thread to send some people on a teeny-weeny guilt trip). People under going heart surgery and people who tend to look at the roof (Ref. My previous post) are excused from this guilt trip.

    Still a few shots left to be fired to finish this final round. You all know the reasons for taking those shots.

    Adios. See you in DC.

    P.S I will remove my signature after all the shots are fired.

    For the ROW category, the manual seems to indicate that they have a general date (such as in the Visa Bulletin) but I would expect that they have many visa counts for each country..... Anyone have a quick synopsis of how they handle that?
    I'm Canada btw....

    From OH mathew


    07/06/2007: Revised July 2007 Visa Bulletin

    The State Department has just released new July 2007 Visa Bulletin rather than "Update." It appears that this is intended to make it official July 2007 Visa Bulletin rather than previous release which was "update" in anticipation of the ALF class action lawsuit. One of the claims which have been addressed by various sources, INCLUDING THIS WEBSITE, was whether "update" can be considered a revised Visa Bulletin for the purpose of the regulations of DOS and USCIS. If it is not, the USCIS would have no authority to reject the I-485 applications in July.
    There is still confusion as to which one is considered July Visa Bulletin which is provided in the DOS and USCIS regulations as they have released three versions: (1) Visa Bulletin released in June; (2) Update of July Visa Bulletin; and (3) July Visa Bulletin which has just been released today. This can affect the definition of "class" of the class action and latter two releases can fall under the two different classes. I wonder why the DOS is adding further confusion to the nation which is already in a state of extreme confusion and in despair because of their previous action.

    If you have guts talk on the open forum, why do you give REDs from the back?

    Abe Kutte, you did not fill out your profile properly, Moran.
    Application mailed date is 03/03/2005 and USCIS Rcvd Date is 04/03/2001.

    Looks like you learned in your Ph.d to go backwards in life, Moran.Keep going back and reach 1990, you will get your GC soon. Saat me leke ja tumara sunnysurya ko bi (don't forget to buy bangles for both of you):D:D

    By the way I am EB3 and I don't have intentions to port, still I support whoever eligible.

    Here is the form you can fill out to express support:

    O.K. I might have confused some.

    There are certain child tax credit that you qualify with ITIN. But there is another kind of child tax credit which you cannot claim without the child's SSN. I cannot remember the exact name of the tax item but I do remember it was a big amount. Eventually, by the time we can get her SSN (hopefully if we are lucky enough) after GC, we won't qualify once again because of the income limit.

    This is from the IRS website at:

    As for:

    I have filed returns for my child but my child was born here so we do have a SSN.

    If there are few cases which are returned for false reasons ( see other thread) after Aug 17th probably those few will be forgotten till PD becomes Current again - 6-7 yrs - Huh ? :)

    Please realize that HR 5882 is the only hope for now. I had mentioned in my previous posts that EB 2 I/C will retrogress in Oct (many said i was just saying this because i was EB3). This is not the time to be complacent or hope that USCIS will start dishing out visas and clear the backlogs. Help in working towards getting something done with the bills, the window of opportunity is very short.

    Although I can think of better drinks, and Goa isn't what it used to be any more. :)


    seriously , I have seen a couple of people who day dream unrealistic thing and for some time
    thinks thats true. This normally happens, when you normally facing a lot of negative things then your mind things of all the good things,( in your shit load of money on stocks and investments). This actually helps keeping one out of depression in the illusional state. but unfortunately fact is fact.
    As far as I know, I am pretty aggressive in investment and I am getting @15% right now.. which too in a very unconventional ways.. by investing in forex and start ups with a risk of loosing nearly 80% of the investment in a day. when you 100K-200K and get returns like 100k.. dude that 100%-50% investment.. please let me know where can I do that.

    I promise I gonna leave everything and go back with my money make investment in that and live the rest sipping feni by goa beach.

    Just made an online contribution through my banks bill pay for $150.00. My handle should be part of the memo.

    On a more important note:

    WHY is the "Contact us" link SO hard to find?? I was required to put in the IV phone number and it took me more than 10 mins to find it. I highly suggest that the administrators put the contact link on the homepage itself.

    Thanks for the contribution.
    Contact us link is on every page at the top.

    Well said. I also wonder how that fellow has 4 greens. Funny forum. No fairness.


    I thought that nobody in this forum thinks properly, but you came to the rescue.

    Thank you.

    It seems that everytime you make a comment/opinion on somebody's comments, somebody will always fire back with a very nasty and inappropriate reply. I don't understand that. I thought IV is an open forum that you can exchange opinions, but it seems that everytime you make your own, people start to gang up on you if your opinion is against theirs, no matter how you phrase it properly.

    They can just reply in an educated way instead of abusing or using nasty and harsh words.

    But you are thinking member.

    Keep it that way.

    You need to have proper knowledge of the market to invest anywhere. Most of the things you have stated make it clear that you have never been a real estate investor.

    I think you missed a chance by not investing in India through 2001 to 2005.Money has doubled tripled and there are buyers who can afford to buy in Tier 1 cities. Those are not the EMPLOYED people but the SELF-EMPLOYED ones.

    Study the market carefully and make sound decisions whether India or anywhere but dont make comments based on some analysis.

    Also,Investing is an ongoing exercise, whether Real estate,Stocks. you cannot just wake up one day and say I want to invest in Indian real estate. You need to build a portfolio similar to the way you do for Stocks. Start with a some research and a small investment. My suggestion is to join a group of people who are already doing some Real estate investment and go along with them. Just reading someone else's comments and coming to a conclusion is not good. Do more research ,Invest time, Wait for the right opportunity.

    Just my few cents.

    Just additionally, It is not a good idea to invest in a House in India right now just as a pure Investment. You are right on that part.

    I know this has been discussed in the past on this and other message boards but I wanted to hear some more opinions about it. What is the value of green card to you?

    I know different ppl have different reasons like ability to switch jobs, ability to travel freely, ability to have a job for spouse etc. All said and done how many of you would like to go back to your home countries in the next 5-6 years? I know a lot of people have issues such as aging parents back home or they simply don't see themselves living in a foreign land forever. I guess my question is what percentage of ppl aspiring for a GC view it as a convenience vs percentage of ppl who actually see it as a path to settling down in US for good.


    While I have been an ardent supporter of the IV core team, I have begun to reflect on why we are not reaching our required targets in contribution. I think there are two reasons. Firstly, we need to reveal how much money we need. This would give people an idea of how much is needed and how much needs to be contributed. Otherwise, people may assume that we are not spending their previous contributions wisely and are always asking for contributions. This becomes even more true because we do not have any actual results to show for our efforts. Ok, this in any way does not demean the efforts of the whole organization so far, but the world runs on results and judges you by it.

    The second reason may the overzealousness with which logiclife posts his messages for contributions. While I understand his frustration, his overzealousness may be perceived as arrogance by some. Rather than sending e-mails and overzealous posts, we need to re-invent our strategy for seeking contributions. While I don't have the answers on what the right strategy should be, what we are doing right now is clearly not working. Perhaps, we can begin with logiclife toning down his overzealousness in his postings for contributions.

    Just my two cents.....

    Landed July 1997.
    Couple of contracting jobs with a desi bodyshopper(read it as a blood sucker). Believed him for almost 4 years of false promises that they will do GC processing. Finally quit the company and joined a major HMO company. Started the GC paper work in early Jan 2002. Due to the attorney screw ups, and wrong documentation, filed the labor in EB3 (did not even know that upto almost 2 years after filing, was thinking it was filed in EB2) in Jan 2003. Yes, it took 1 year for attorney's screw ups to be rectified. In that company, we were not allowed to talk directly to the lawyer and had to go thru the employer. So to get a simple answer would take 10-15 days. Wish IV was there then. Waited in Labor Processing for 4+years. 140 approved in early 2007. Filed 485 in july fiasco and got EAD, from then changed 2 jobs (got that freedom atleast). Per my own estimate, I should be receiving my GC sometimes in 2015. Current employer will not do GC processing , so no chance of filing for Eb2. I dont want to change employers even if it costs my GC, because, I am enjoying the work that I am doing. And in my opinion thats important because, I would rather be in a job that I enjoy more without GC than being in a job that I do not like with GC. So, 13 years and still going. Completed PMP, MBA meanwhile. Thats my story.

    03-14 07:53 PM
    ...raised an SR, sent an interfiling request, but still no LUD yet.

    If you check OP and other posters in this discussion, looks like it took around 2 months for all of them.


    Does anyone has recently got I-485 approval after porting priority date from earliar EB3 filing.

    My I-140 got approved 2 weeks back and based on priority date, I am current. Ny EB3 485 was filed in July 2007.

    How long it is taking for I485 to get approved after I-140 approval when the priority date is current.
