Thanks for all your hard work with Ron and keeping this forum alive. I apologies for not being actively involved in the past couple weeks, I was not feeling well and whenever I felt better I had to work - to keep my job :)
Anyhow, I see a lot has changes, we have a lot more people now with the Audit issues, since the last time I posted the list. I will be posting one very soon - before the end of the day tomorrow (Tuesday).
I had the page scrolling issue too on IE 6 (at work) . Now, I open IV forumns on firefox and I do not have the problem anymore.
APPENDIX: REFORM SOLUTIONS
The Need for a Compassionate Visa
A compassionate visa is immediately required for reasons of humanity and dignity. Currently, because of the technicalities of US immigration laws many families torn apart are also subject to more degrading treatment at times of severe illness. Any provision should allow for the following:
* US residents, including those who are landlocked, to leave the USA for any necessary period for compassionate reasons;
* Non-US residents to enter the USA for any necessary period for compassionate reasons on a nonimmigrant basis;
* Evidence of immigrant intent should not prevent a person receiving a compassionate visa (such as an existing immigrant petition), unless an applicant makes it absolutely clear their intention is to immigrate and not to enter the USA on a temporary basis;
* To prevent abuse of such a visa, documentary evidence should be required as appropriate to ensure the application is made in good faith; and
* Compassionate visa processing should be dealt with the USCIS for US residents and in the consular office for non-US residents on an expedited basis if the imminent death of a close relative or funeral arrangements for a deceased relative is at issue.
INA, section 203(h) (as inserted by the Child States Protection Act, section 3) (8 U.S.C.1153(h))
Current Provision in INA, section 203(h)
�RULES FOR DETERMINING WHETHER CERTAIN ALIENS ARE CHILDREN-
(1) IN GENERAL- For purposes of subsections (a)(2)(A) and (d), a determination of whether an alien satisfies the age requirement in the matter preceding subparagraph (A) of section 101(b)(1) shall be made using--
(A) the age of the alien on the date on which an immigrant visa number becomes available for such alien (or, in the case of subsection (d), the date on which an immigrant visa number became available for the alien's parent), but only if the alien has sought to acquire the status of an alien lawfully admitted for permanent residence within one year of such availability; reduced by
(B) the number of days in the period during which the applicable petition described in paragraph (2) was pending.
(2) PETITIONS DESCRIBED- The petition described in this paragraph is--
(A) with respect to a relationship described in subsection (a)(2)(A), a petition filed under section 204 for classification of an alien child under subsection (a)(2)(A); or
(B) with respect to an alien child who is a derivative beneficiary under subsection (d), a petition filed under section 204 for classification of the alien's parent under subsection (a), (b), or (c).
(3) RETENTION OF PRIORITY DATE- If the age of an alien is determined under paragraph (1) to be 21 years of age or older for the purposes of subsections (a)(4) and (d), the alien's petition shall automatically be converted to the appropriate category and the alien shall retain the original priority date issued upon receipt of the original petition.''
The references to �(a)(2)(A)� refers to principal beneficiaries and �(d)� refers to derivative beneficiaries. Subsection (1) provides a calculation to be considered a child under the family-based preference categories in light of USCIS processing delays. Subsection (2) describes the types of petition covered, ensuring beneficiaries, whether principal or derivative, are treated as a child under 21. Subsection (3) is another useful provision so that if the calculation of a beneficiary renders them over 21, they can retain the priority date of the original petition.
The language of this provision has rendered the provision open to ambiguity. Specifically, subsection (3) states the �alien�s petition shall be automatically be converted to the appropriate category and the alien shall retain the original priority date issued upon receipt of the original petition.� The problem is in relation to a derivative beneficiary (which is covered by this subsection) and is twofold. First, by its nature of being a derivative, a derivative beneficiary does not have an original application to speak of. Only the parent has a petition, which has caused the ambiguity. A Board of Immigration (BIA) decision did provide a common sense interpretation (Garcia, Maria T, File A79-001-587, June 16, 2006), but this is not binding on the USCIS and we know first hand that the USCIS has not consistently interpreted the provision in accordance with the BIA decision. Second, although the above mentioned BIA decision clarifies the provision also applies to F4 derivative beneficiaries, these petitions do not automatically convert. An F4 derivative beneficiary who ages still must wait for their Parent to file a new I-130 form, which is inconsistent with the language of the provision.
Another problem is if the new proposed points system is implemented, any person who ages out will no longer have a direct basis for immigration. Instead they would have to qualify under a points system, which is not guaranteed. This new system would make the above provisions redundant.
You think you can make people who are not even aware of 'day trading' the greatest financial experts, by your 'blogs' (where are they?)
I don't want your 'cake', for that matter anybody's. You eat well (and have stomach problems). Why bother to educate this nonsense here.
I asked because when you try people to this trap, you should have the basic decency to tell atleast how much you lost!
if people are interested in financial investments and if they have enough knowledge, surely they won't come here to read your crap. Anyway those who become educated reading things here are destined to lose.
i dont understand why people wants to contradict in every post, chintu is trying to share some knowledge if u dont want it thats fine u dont need to contradict it....even i dont do this stock stuff but that does not mean i should contradict it...
Yes, one of my friends received in exactly 30 days too......I am hoping same is the case with me....
I have never run before............not even a mile. I still cannot and have just started training for the DC 10 miler. So please do not feel shy about running even if this is your first time. We are willing to answer any questions that you might have...........but please signup; set a target and start ASAP. Worst case you will end up walking instead of running.
who ever file in EB2 category, they are auditing and asking too many details like, business necessity, previous employee exp if it is re filling the position, recruitment report (paper advertisement, dates, intranet advirtisement details what not)...
so as of now we can't say that they are targeting only IT people.
What classifies as a multi-national executive? Is there a set criteria like they have for researchers i.e. quality of papers published, cited and reviewed by peers, impact of research etc.
To answer the question : Does a person with a BS + 6 yrs of experience (the quality of which is questionable at best) equate to a person with several years of quality research (yes the quality of research is a determining factor), I think you might want to ask yourself: If you had your own company who would you hire? Unless you are running a Ponzi scam show of course.
I can see SA 187 passed in Senate and it has text under section VI
The similar text can be also seen in SA 180 but its status is unknown
Take printouts of http://immigrationvoice.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=22&Itemid=36
the flyer is a word file and print several copies and keep it in your car. When you go for shopping, groceries, temples, etc... keep them in your hand and if you see someone like you .. (South Asian, Asian...) there is a chance they maybe retrogressed.
Give them the flyer.
Sometimes you will be pleasantly surprised to meet other fellow IV member and will make new friends.
Try this. It worked for me.
Still no sign of the EAD :mad:
Beginning to get jittery now...
Print, sign, stamp and mail letters.
I am all for it.
Before we ask Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren for any further help/support, don't you guys think it will be appropriate to first thank her in some kind of noble way? Any ideas?
I personally think (at least to begin with) a letter expressing gratitude for and our faith in her efforts would be a nice gesture.:)

3)Print/Circulate Fliers and spread FB, wiki link (see "support thread")
SGP are you working at Client's site in NJ or are you working from Home for a company in LA, CA ?
If you are at Client Site then you need a LCA for NJ and no need for address in LA., CA
If you are working from home, then you have to check what does your Paystub say, if it says that you are an employee in LA, CA you have to find a home in CA.
It is from my understanding of the law. Other's please comment
I do not feel it is correct when some one from EB2 says EB2 person is > EB3 and hence eligibile for quicker visa. The person who sits next to me got GC in July 2007. His PD was 2001 May and EB3. But he was doing the same role that I am doing. He changed his job using AC21 but could not do anything to change his EB categort at that time. Luckily he got GC otherwise he would have been in the first group that you have mentioned and suffering for years and years.
For many people GC is under EB3 due to various reason like employer and lawyer screwup. I can understand the frustration of people waiting since 2001. Same time everyone wants to get faster. So EB2 hates EB1 and EB3 hates EB2 and thats how life goes. We need to hate and love some to keep life interesting. :)
Its a classical case of too many people and very few visa#. Every one has a valid point
1) One group says I have oldest PD I am waiting since 8 years so I need to get GC
2) Second says I have a better category (EB1 & EB2) so I need to be given preference
3) Third group says I was qualified for EB2 but company & lawyer pushed me to EB3
4) Fourth group Say I have MS PhD from US so preference is mine
Actually all 4 have valid justification but the # are so few that you pick one point and you hurt other groups. So conclusion is Admin fix will only help one interest group but it is possible. Immi reform will help everyone but is difficult/ impossible
1. Remove Country Caps for Good
2. Remove Country Caps. Temporarily
3. Exempt people from Country Caps who have been waiting for 3, 4 or 5 years(You pick a number).
We have suspended the work for July 485 filing development pending the clarification of the rumor next week. Please bear with us in this confusing and difficult time.
06/29/2007: EB-Visa Number Retrogression?
There is a rumor going around that the State Department will issue a revised Visa Bulletin for July 2007 next Monday (July 2) or Tuesday (July 3) and that it may show retrogression of some or all EB categories, very likely to the point of unavailable for the month of July! Please stay tuned.
Some porter gave me red on this post.
