So does this mean that all the July filers will be eligible for Naturalization come July 2012 ( provided they get the GC by then)
Gurus please comment - any one has spoken to the lawyers on this topic?
Please share your thoughts...:confused:

Today IV is a 10000 member organization!
Thank you everyone who participated in the campaign!
Three important next steps:
1. Let us all (every member), start and continue working on the IV action items such as "Meet your Lawmakers", "Call Lawmakers", etc. If we can do these now, we will definitely be able to influence the upcoming votes in the House and Senate on the immigration bills. And these bills are coming pretty soon (in a matter of weeks). So now is the time to act!
2. Let us all contribute as much as possible now. OUr donations will help IV in its lobbying effort. The more financially strong IV is, the better it can work support on the hill.
3. Last but not the least, we cannot stop at 10000. The stronger our numbers are, the more effective we can be (both in campaigns, as well as financially). So I am upping the target here. Please help introduce ONE member to IV by the end of April. If everyone of us added just ONE member by end of April 2007, we would be a 20000 member strong team.
20000 might look daunting, but's it's really not every individual just took care of his one member.
ADD ONE MEMBER BY APRIL 30, 2007!

1) Sent email to Congressman
2) Sent email to friends in this area and have to them send email.
3) Sent email to other friends in my network and asked them to do the same.
4) Going to call to setup meeting.
Agree with 485Mbe4001. We should focus on recapturing unsed visas. I dont think so we will see CIR this year. Before other groups pushes for Anti h1b or gc laws. we should start somthing on recapturing or removing country cap. OR atleast some admin fixes. I understand CORE is waiting for time to do aggressive campaign but what if dont get CIR this year ? I think We are thinking to play only defensive game here. If some one try to hurt us in H1b or GC bill then we will do campaign. Lets do not wait for antis to start.

Pappu, please close this thread.
First of all, the topic of this thread is a total waste of time.
We hardly have enough support, funding, time etc. to fight GC related issue, and here people wasting time on discussing Citizenship! I am politely asking these people if any of you have contributed any of your time/money/effort to IV, Did you? Simply hypocrisy.
And top of that people in this thread are using extreme foul language.
Please close this thread.
You also made sarcastic comment in this thread about me. See if you guys do not like this idea better keep away from this thread instead of making sarcastic comments and harsh words.

A handful will march to washington DC and get the senators to know them by their "first names". Others will simply chip in a few hundred bucks and make themselves feel they are the Buffets and the Gates of this world. Still others will simply fume and fret. Some will preach how porting EB3->2 means "gaming" the system.
All very experienced EB workers who think they can get the best of everything at the price of nothing. Who want everything "risk free".
Green cards in the mail and smooth upward progressions in their careers.:D
Wake up. :D You are responding to 2008 post.
hot for the Guaranty Building
(I will bring this to the notice of the Core Group, however, one should take note that we cannot have a very broad agenda, as it would be challenging for us to approach Congress with requests).

Hope this does not push your place at the print queue all the way back.

It has take mine for eight months now...since May 2008 (got audited). I really don't know what else can be done to make the point to DOL how frustrated it is to wait for the lengthy PERM process. I am sure many are still waiting and their caes are back to July - Aug 2007.

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).

They may have done the prevailing wage (DOL website has this info) and LCA online. Employer can do their LCA online and get answer/approval within minutes. Once the approval is signed, I-129 can be filed on the same day. My employer did these things when they filed my H1B (I got it 5/6 months later).
Hope that helps,

hairstyles and the Guaranty Building,
Sent my PP for renewal few weeks back and I got it back in 2 weeks.
For me it looked like SFO is pretty good.
We need more people like Zoe who understand the situation better.
For a 30 year mortgage and a 20% down payment, the house return on your invested equity of 20% by the end of 15 years is approximately equal to long term stock market return of 10%, even though the house is appreciating at inflation + 1%. This is because of deleveraging.
However, if we do not refinance by the end of 15 years then the house becomes a bad investment and the returns go down.
I beg to differ. House is a BAD investment. Historically houses appreciate approximately at the rate of inflation+1 or 2 % points.(Forget bubble years). Plus the costs(maintenance and property taxes) related to house ownership makes it a really BAD investment. Imagine putting money in an account which gives 2% returns and has 2% maintenance charges!
House is a great place to live in. That is what should be in mind while buying a house.
I agree. However if somebody thinks living in a bigger place brings a better quality of life, even then he/she does not need to buy at 3 times the cost of renting the same place. He can RENT. By buying you are bringing the quality of life down. At one time a place in my area which could be rent for appx 2000 dollars a month would take about 4000+ dollars to own with 30 year fixed. Reason? because rents reflect the buying power of the resident. Nobody gets a ARM for paying the rent!
Yes. I am convinced that if you wait another year or so, ratio of cost of ownership and cost of renting will come to some sane levels and that is when people should think of buying. I am planning the same.
