2011 Will Brad Paisley be Jason#39;s
So still waiting.
With you guys getting the cards, i think TSC is abck in business and they will start working on the applications.
I will keep you posted.
67 days for me as well (difference is mine in Paper based).
Still waiting, I will wait for 3 more days, else try to do SR request as suggested.( I need to figure out how to open a SR, though)
Sent $60 Money Order. Recieved the passport along with the old one on 28th April 2009.
My experince has been good.They promptly replied to my emails.
I explained to her the visa -flip flop, and she said most likely the senator will read and send an inquiry, The senator is very good at responding to letters from constituents.
That is exactly why we need to send them letters, please look at the format and add some personal details, gives it a little personal touch.
I agree. My experience thus far: I emailed 200 reporters and received no response. I am going to try the letters idea, because I too think what Amitjoey says is right-- letters make an impact.
Write a letter, run a grammar/spell check, then print, SIGN, and send it to senators who support us. I wrote the following. But please personalize, because that would send the message that this is an issue of importance to you-- the writer.

Subject: Thousands of properly filed EB Green Card applications likely to be rejected/ returned
� Interim Visa Bulletin by U S Department of State
� USCIS announcement to stop accepting Adjustment Of Status applications
I have been living in ___, USA for the last ___ months/ years. By profession, I am a ____, and I work for ___, a company based in ___.
I am writing to bring to your attention the unprecedented decision made by US Department of State (DOS) on July 2, 2007 with its interim �visa bulletin�. With this bulletin, DOS determined that all the immigrant visa numbers allocated for the current financial year had been expended, and thus there would be no further authorizations of new Green Cards this year. In response, USCIS announced that it would return all Adjustment of Status applications it received, beginning July 2, 2007. Please note that the USCIS had already RECEIVED applications on the morning of July 2, 2007, even before DOS published this interim visa bulletin.
In my opinion it is an unfortunate decision in that it virtually renders null and void, thousands of properly filed Employment Based Green Card- Adjustment of Status applications.
An important thing to note here, is that in the Visa Bulletin published by DOS only 18 days ago (June 13, 2007) all Employment Based categories had been made �current� since almost 60000 immigrant visa numbers had been unused till that time.
This begs the question: how did USCIS manage to approve about 60000 green cards in less than 3 weeks, when it took the previous 8 months to approve the same number of green cards?
The Visa Bulletin published by DOS in June 2007, had brought good news to thousands of high-skilled temporary workers (doctors, engineers, IT professionals) in the USA, because the floodgates that had been closed for over 2 years had been re-opened.
This bulletin had implied that we could finally apply for "Adjustment of Status"- the final stage of the 3 step Employment based Green card process. This would solve a number of quality of life issues for people like me, as they would allow our spouses to take up part or full time jobs, they would bring in an element of stability allowing me to plan the purchase of a new home, and it would give me the freedom of relocating to another part of the USA for any unforeseen reason, without worrying about the portability of my existing job.
Therefore, my family and I worked really hard, and tried to religiously comply with all procedures laid out and submitted our application to reach the USCIS on the morning of July 2, 2007.
Besides running around to gather the paperwork to help file in time, I had to spend a significant amount of money on:
1) Urgent medical examinations and vaccinations by USCIS approved surgeon: $700. (Note: These were not covered by my medical insurance.)
2) New passport photographs; these needed to be less than a month old... so these had to be newly taken photographs
3) Notarization/ Courier charges: Approximately $100 (Some amount expended in foreign currency)
All of the money spent, as well as the time and efforts were rendered useless by the new bulletin on July 2, 2007, which I repeat, was published AFTER the window opened for new applications on the morning of July 2, 2007.
My point is, and I believe anyone with common sense would agree, it is only fair to expect a notice period before a reversal such as this one. Preferably... weeks of notice if not days! I am sure no US Citizen would accept anything less for a notice in such an important matter!
I would implore you to look into this matter as soon as you can, and request the USCIS to accept Adjustment of Status applications filed through July 2007.

Nice one. RFE for USCIS.:D
If they can't answer in time. Will they be out of status:D
At that time EB3 I used to get around ~15K-20K, from other countries. Then all of a sudden USCIS started vertical spillover, i.e. any remaining numbers from other countries no matter what EBx, will go to EB1 I/C/M and then fall to EB2 I/C/M and then to EB3 I/C/M.
This way EB3-I gets nothing as everything is consumed at EB2-I level.
If there is a way to get USCIS to start horizontal spillover again, then things can get OK, as USCIS does not need any law change, or any legislation change for this policy.
This is incorrect. EB3 spillovers would come only to EB3 over subscribed countries. It will not goto EB1 or Eb2... But the chance of EB-3 ROW becoming current is almost next to impossible. That is why EB3-I need to depend on spillover from EB2....Since most are applying in Eb2 now, chance of EB2-I becoming current is slim....Thats why Eb3-I is between devil and deep sea.

In theory, it is a wonderful question but in practically answer depends upon with which country you are refering the situation. In India, THE dog from USA
with hi "dogginess" certificate can project himself as "Lion". And practically I am seriously doubting the real standard of US Higher degree certification based on teh experiences so far what I have achieved working here many years. It is our problem that we take this shit to enroll in US based degree programs though you are a degree holder from India. This at least seems to be true for computer/electronics engineering related courses. It may not be true for all other courses. More or less I am beliver of the thought that this whole US education system at least for engineering and management runs on the basis of slave mentality of Indian and Chinese people. Perhaps it might be very good and of high standard 20 years back with comparision to educational systems in India/China then but now I have serious doubts.

Movement on immigration stalled
Thursday, June 15, 2006, 10:56 AM
by Jason Vance
House Speaker Dennis Hastert is backing away from statements made earlier this week suggesting a plan to hold hearings on the Senate�s version of the immigration reform bill.
According to Congressional Quarterly, Hastert says he'll look at that issue, but the first priority is spreading the leadership's message about the Iraq war. Hastert has said he wants to take a long look at the Senate's legislation before naming House conferees.
There are some big differences the conference committee will have to reconcile. The Senate's bill provides a pathway to citizenship for millions of illegal immigrants already in the country, and includes a guest-worker program. Neither is included in the House version, which focuses on tightening border security.

Some of my nc colleagues went on to meet ???? - they had a productive meeting there too...perhaps Rahul will write about it. After the meetings we made our way back to the franconia metro, had dinner at the springfield mall food court and left there by 8 pm. We were back in RTP by midnight. In all 22 hours...well spent!
one of the things I did today was send out a note to all my friends groups...while most people seemed to ignore all pleas to join the rally or contribute $, they all seemed to be watching curiously. A lot of them feared going to the rally...some others didnt care. Some others even promised to show up and didn't. But i believe we need the support of these very people, if IV has to grow and become an even stronger force in the future...I shall copy paste wot i wrote, and i encourage all to write to their skeptic friends...only to point to a positive experience and ask for their future participation. So i quote...
"Some might wonder why we participated? Well, how could we give up on a chance to make history and truly understand what it means to live in a democracy. Its not about desperation for a green card, its about fairness and dignity. We believe that we have the right to a fair, open and predictable process and anything else is an affront to our dignity. We believe that the system is broken and can be changed. But change to the system will not come overnight and it will definitely not come with us keeping quiet. So we got out and did what we knew was possible - get the message out, propose solutions, meet congressmen and appeal to people's conscience.
In participating in this movement for change, we realized something else that we would like to share. We realize that the struggle for a fair immigration process is but a process of change just like struggles against oppresion and prejudice of different severities. The only difference is that its a question of dignity and fair process versus segregated facilities and disenfranchisement. Accept one and you accept the other. So if we wonder how the world could have every been a certain way in the past, we don't have to look beyond ourselves. Honest and well intentioned as we might be, if we cannot stand up and say something about something that affects our rights and freedoms as individuals, we are saying that we are OK with all that is around us.
thanks to all who offered support! if you are still on the sidelines, do get involved! Our success depends on all of us making a contribution!"
thanks IV volunteers/Coords. a million kudos!

Is this EB2 or EB3? Is there a difference in the approval time if you're EB2 ROW?

I am sorry to hear that VISA was not yet issued to your husband and that consulate is giving them a hard time. I pray to God that they get the VISA ASAP.
I am curious to know - if your hasband went to the consulate for the first time for VISA stamping or he had expired US VISA on his passport and a valid I-797 form and if he went for VISA restamping.
I will be travelling to my home country and will be going to US consulate for my H1B VISA stamping with approved I-797 next month. H1b VISA stamp on my passport has expired and I am here in the 8th year of H1B.
The several thousand dollars worth of additional (and mostly unnecessary) expense could be better spent here in the States. Something that can perhaps also be highlighted in your presentations.
Indeed, the visa process does favor white Europeans over Asians and Latinos.
My brother-in-law, who is from S. America became a Canadian citizen 3 years after he was granted residency in Canada. The decision is based on points for education, language skills, job experience, etc.
