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.
Happy to inform that on 89th and 90th day (respectively) both me and my wife got the CPO emails. We had filed on may 21st and had fingerprints taken on 6/11. You can find our details on the second post on this thread. Waiting eagerly for the cards now, hopefully 2 year.
Good luck to all of you!
How come no one in your company B asked you whether you are married or not and whether or not you need H4 filed for you spouse. Same thing about company C. Either of these companies' HR or immigration lawyer should have asked you about dependents and spouse?
I dont know but even the smallest of consulting companies dont make this kind of mistake and they would remind you if you forget. My company's lawyer is quite lazy and slow but even his paralegal asked all the right questions and got all documents needed and didnt forget stuff when filing for various things.
Well that's where small consulting company comes handy. I had this experience with a big company. They never asked for my wife's I-94 till the 11th hour when I brought the fact that I'm married and my wife (no wives here :( ) might need some extension. Since, it was my first H1 extension after marriage, I really didn't know that company has to file for her extension as well. I thought it just happens automatically..how naive I was.
I think Americans have to decide.
Do they want to work with Indians/Chinese in America?
Or do they want to work with Indians/Chinese in India/China?
Their choice :)
Protect everything. Protect all the jobs. Drive all the high-tech jobs out of America.
And then either become a lawyer, or go look for a job in India/China.
What those laywers will do without people and cases? Remember that their jobs cannot be portable as the law of land is totally different in other countries :D
Check them out ......Only for today trades. Nice long opportunities.

Can you post your trading log from last few trading days for us to see ?
Make this thread as a poll and let us how many are suffering. I will close my other thread for the same purpose.
I am in new job and mid of negotiating with blood sucker desi employer not to revoke i140. I can not attend the advocacy days.
Anyway like Eb3retro I also lost my interest so changed job. Profile don't meet much with what written in i140, so who cares if GC rejected I will be heading to India.
Good Luck for all your efforts!
Thanks for starting this thread. The next 2 years should be the right time to pursue this I feel. With EB2 approvals picking up at a good rate and the good predictions by qeshmk, TeddyKochu etc in other threads, it gives hope to many of us. Hopefully our fellow EB3 friends also get their approvals by mid 2011. Given the recession in '07, '08, we don't see too many new apps files for ROW in that period, so hopefully we'll have some spillover again in FY'11. That should help both EB2 and EB3 categories.
Having said that, this will be the right time to purse this agenda...Many of the folks suggested, counting date for citizenship from I-485 receipt date or I-140 receipt date. If you google 'Backdate GC', we can see that many other folks in murthy, rajiv khanna forums are also talking about this. So, we might have enough members to pursue this further. Many of us have been here close to 10 years (Me from 2000 on F1, OPT, H1B etc). Its only fair to have some of those years counted towards citizenship.
Pappu, IV leadership,
Please let us know how to proceed further on this...

05/05/2008: USCIS Revises "Significantly" Child Status Protection Act (CSPA) Interpretation & Guidance 04/30/2008
I read it and seems to be complex to understand.
My I-140 was applied in Mar 2005, when my son was 20. PD became current in Jul 2007 and I-485 was filed. I-140 was approved in Oct 2007.
I have a question: Earlier, it was not possible for me to file I-485 for my son. Under new provision, is it possible?
What I meant is that he has REMOVED that advisory from the site. He has not printed an actual retraction.
I requested co-employee (citizen) to call. But I think its effort by all IV members. I dont want to take credit.
But this is great news. Thanks for sharing.
This is very important to call CHC now. They will not let these bill to move forward.
I had call CHC and it will not take more time..
