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:
Next, I want to write to other senators who are friendly to skilled immigrants (Cantwell, Cornyn etc). Has someone compiled a list of them?
That is awesome, thanks. That is going to work.
Good luck to all and have a great week end!
For having SSN benefits, 10 years of service is (=40 credits) required on US soil. To take those benefits you do not have to be a US citizen. Except for some countries, SSN dept can send the SS check to anywhere if mailing address is provided to it. And Green Card by definition is for "Permanent Residency" meaning as long as you renew your GC, you can be in US during your whole life time without becoming US Citizen.
This really captures a lot of what all the "desis" do. Eat a lot of food and watch movies.
Me and my friends joke about it all the time. We try very hard to break from it but its really hard.
On a serious note I agree one should live life to the fullest but I think there is a balance.
Money is not everything but one shouldn't go bankrupt or end up in foreclosure trying to live life to the fullest.
I know those desis who are super savers and will never improve life style and I know those who are always on the edge of bankruptcy because they wanted to live the american dream.
I believe there are always two camps in any group, different view points, ideas and observations.
I firmly believe even if words are harsh from some members they donot mean that bad, or they just simply cant see other's view point.
Over last few year, i have observed something and that bothers me, the point is
"We (Indians) are interesting people, we want to live as an indian in america";
save a lot of money, go home(india) for 15 days ....say bad things about india
and then come here...start saying bad things about america.
I like some points aobut half hearted work from some fellows. I totally agree.
Here is my simply take, if we want to live and compete hapilly, we have to really live in america as an american.
How can an indian who slept all afternoon on weekend, then watched a movie and ate heavy dinnner at night with 5 indian families who all taked about negative things in america; will /can compete with american on monday morning...when this american
got up early on saturday, ran 10 miles ...full of energy....took his/her kids for camping or went on its own, ran /exercised on sunday may be a long trek in woods...he is fresh, ready to work, creative...
I donot think anyone who slept all week/watched movie/talked negative about american society /about america can compete with someone who lived for full weekend.
These are just small observations.
In short, most of us are still living an indian life in america. This will not take us far,
If we want to be happy we got to live as an american in america.
Money is not everything,a big bankbalance will do no good to anyone at age of 65 when you cant move your leg let apart run or play.
I also believe, we (indians) donot give time to ourselves. Ex. husband, wife, kids all together all the time. No good, give time to yourself, do somtihngs togehter and some things seperately, This will give time to observe life as an individual too.
how many indian go out for just all boys groupings, not many. Why??? how bad it can be, when you just go out kick some dust drink beer if you please, atleast releax.
When i started doing it, it was lot of fun.
Same should be with girls, wives, you all should go out and do things with your friends for a change.
same for kids, if your kids want to go camping with school friends, let them go. Let kids live their life. Imaging what your kids talks about weekend, when rest of american kids talk about running in wood, fishing, hunting, mud racing.....????
Just my thoughts and i believe in living life to fullest; and try to live it to fullest too.
do you want the new poll for EB3 only?? ROW
For e.g. I tried to revise mine to $25 from $20, there's no option to do so.
I will probably cancel this subscription and setup one from my bank.
$25, $50, $75, $100 are ideal amounts. I don't know if PayPal charges for each subscription option you create(I would think not).
Please chew on it and and implement, if you think it's good.
I have mine sent on 05/06 and receipt notice date on 5/12, routed to NSC. checks encashed after that no update. One soft LUD on 06/07.
Anyone with the above dates and NSC provide me with their updates.
It happened in 1999-2000 when they made all the dates current for 3 months and after that it went back by 3 years.But good thing this time is that you can change the jobs after 6 months.
If IV can take up this effort, then there is a channel that we can get through. But I dont think it is going to happen, because of the infights. Even if USCIS does'nt react, we can use this process to challenge the intrepretation and show them the mess that they have created. May be that will help
I believe in talking simple and straight. Well, EB3 friends have every right to work for their benefit. Nothing wrong with that. EB2 people should therefore unite and protect their interests too. EB2 group should unite and lobby hard to ensure that the current equation EB1 > EB2 > EB3 is not disturbed. After all, everyone is selfish when the pins are down. EB2 friends, can we be proactive and protect our interests before it is too late? Nothing to get emotional about
so now we have to have PD current processing time for that service center is current and also be lucky so an IO will pick up our application to be processed. (it is actually little depressing)
But I believe for FY2008, big movement will come on April (DOS doesn't like a repeat of the July VB fiasco).
