Mirage, I disagree with you. Let us focus on reaching out as requested by this campaign activity. This is NOT the time to debate or get distracted.
Each and every call counts. It all adds up. This is a democracy. The more calls that these offices get, we have a better chance that they would take a balanced view towards these bills.
So, please do NOT get distracted or get into long drawn debates. the admins have done a lot of the groundwork, given a script and are asking people to call. Let us not second guess them or try to play 'smart alec'.
There is a fax number you can send a letter to expedite your EAD case. You need to mention that you are not able to work and will face extreme financial hardship if you do not recieve your EAD in time. we had sent a fax for our renewal last time and it worked.
My employer posted the job order around June 18th.Sunday newspapaer ads and all other work is completed. Technically speaking Iam eligible for applying for labor on Aug 18th. Is there a way that i can apply for labor and check my luck now with the changes that took place yesterday on July 17th regarding USCIS making all employment categories current?
Can i do this? I really appreciate if somebody can respond me on their thoughts and ideas how i can utilize this chance..
Please pas this to as many friends as possible whoever is suffering because of Atlanta Processing Center.
Thanks for adding the info
Hopefully we will see more people info by next week.
hellomms - Plan for the next steps.
Things are not good at Chicago either (at least for me). 9 months after audit reply and still waiting.
Please dont' make this specific to Atlanta. Though things might be different from June 1st since there will be only Atlanta Center.
1) Time spent as Students in F1 or similar category.
2) Time spent by Research Scholar for e.g PHD holder who may have spent 5-7 years working on PHD's, and they would love to capture those times.
What you guys think?
These are the points I suggested in my previous thread on Citizenship. It covers all individuals:
1. If they are legally here for 10 years (With approved I-140 and waiting for Adjustment of Status without current date).
2. If they have earned full 40 points in Social Security (http://immigrationvoice.org/forum/#)
3. If they have paid the tax continuously for 10 years
4. If they own a house and paying Mortgage (adding weightage to the Economy (http://immigrationvoice.org/forum/#) boost)
5. If they do not have any criminal records in these 10 years.
Sending them out today!

I never took infopass or call NSC center. It was 5 (add 1 year to for preparation but who cares apart from us) years of wait.
I got email "Card production ordered".
I never on this forum or posted but read it in last couple of days. I thought it will help others to get some idea from above info.
I pray others will get the same message who is current this month.
But, are extreme metaphors really necessary? I don't think anyone here will be willing to chop off body parts for green cards! :) And I don't think it will give anyone receiving them as much relief/happiness.
Congrats again and thanks for your good wishes. :)
Thank you Ksrk
It was merely an expression. I am sure you guys get the point.
Hangin there. 2004 will be cleared soon. If not this month, next month.
Contact a good immigration attorney immediately. Being out of status is a serious violation and her access to US can be restricted due to this. I doubt very much that her 539 will be approved.
Congratulations to all from my side and enjoy the new found freedom.
To all gurus here, does this mean that we can expect date forward movement in OCT bulletin?
Mine is EB2 India Apr 2008. Any chance for me to file i-485?
Support Doc sent -07/18
Receipt Date 07/16
Waiting for FP date
PD - Dec 2004
RD - Aug 2007
ND - Oct 2007
Never had any RFE. Centre - Texas.
I am expecting 2004 EB will be cleared this month. All the 2004 guys just relax and be easy ( particularly SOP ). Honestly i didnt care much before, there are million things better than gc in life. Having said that, its good to have purely for travelling purposes.
If anyone whose PD is earlier than mine, i truly apologize. Its not me, its USCIS. I have seen PDs same as mine getting approved 2 yr ago.
Stay tight and believe in yourself NOT USCIS.
Congrats! My wife's PD is close as yours. No update yet. ND is same. 2nd week of October.
I am hoping for the best!
We are thinking of refusiong the promotion offer, however the boss is willing to helo keep the new job waiting for her and continue her green card processing in the current designation
1. I know you can change jobs after 6 months of I-485 filing.at that point can she use the EAD to work at this new job or she can only port the EAD to a similar occupation?
2. Other scenario is then have to a future job offer for the category that she has applied to green card through either from the same employer or a different one.. and asking for a H-1 B for the job with a higher salary?
3. If the spouse derivative uses the EAD can the primary applicant stay on H-1 b Status without using her EAD or is it going to be considered as though she used her EAD and hence no longer in H-1B?
They don't even have a towel , they are just sitting on the benches and watching !! Many don't have the guts to fight.
Can you please send an email to all members the content of the sticky?
we send emails to members as a newsletter and will include this as action item. However we do not want to spam our members every now and then. we also want our members to update their details at this time so that we can reach out to them. only few members actually updated their information till now.
-File I-485 irrespective of PD
-Stop counting dependents against quota
-USCIS backlog should be transparent so one can predict his turn.
-Remove Country cap. Its unfair for people born in india to wait decades while other nationals get their visa almost immediately.
Family reunion should be very important. I am separated from my wife for 3 years now because of Jul'2007 fiasco. Sent many letters to Senators, President, vice president but nobody is bothered to look at my case
