The results were very similar to the trackkit poll.
In summary, about
50% are with PDs of Year 2000 - 2004 and 50% 2005 - 2007.
I was surprised to find EB3 PDs in 2000 and 2001 but there were few.
So far this poll is also showing similar results.

You have been doing that without a GC for the longest time on this list!
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).

I came to know about this site by looking at a post from one of the website where i visit daily (www.idlebrain.com).
Members should post immigrationvoice.org link in all the forums which they know

How Would a Republican Congress Handle Immigration? � The Washington Independent (http://washingtonindependent.com/101609/how-would-a-republican-congress-handle-immigration)
1. Based on the report above, the new heads of judiciary committee and Immigration Sub Committee are individuals who view "border security" as the first step towards Immigration Reform. Since a majority of members on this forum are LEGAL immigrants, we need not worry about any steps taken towards border security and ICE Enforcement.
5. Immigration Voice works with Patton Boggs to voice our concerns with the lawmakers. Former Senator/Congressman Trent Lott works with Patton Boggs. He was the house majority leader, Republican whip and is someone who has (or had) a lot of clout within the Republican party. He was a colleague of Rep. Lamar Smith. He might help us push for the legal immigration piece.[/B][/B]
Just my $0.02
I agree with you, I kind of like the way republicans have been handling immigration issues in general so far. I am in New York and we plan on meeting Senator Schumer too anyway.
We should support their border, ICE policies, but the current president has also set a record for deportations. I also kind of see where americans feel that a secure border and deportation is a priority and its good for every body. We are implicitly supporting, as some are paying 2000 extra for a visa to fund border security!!
The difference between advocacy and lobbying directly is just citizenship.
many of us forget that we are in one of the best functioning/largest democracies, no matter its defects.
Of course the end result is we need a change in law for this, no matter what, and the only way to do this is with a Bill.
I changed the subject of this thread from 'New Bill', but the title is still the old one. We can do this in other ways too, instead of a new one.

If you read my any previous posts and to repeat, there will be no issue to contribute from me or most of us here. We need an action item. Anyone with minimum common knowledge here sees there is no change in dates for the last 6 months, or even last few years. You seem to be a strong supporter of contributions, can you list one action item which we planned to take up in the last or in near future that addresses our concerns of backlogs. Now dont come back and tell me or send me a picture of July 07 campaign or your 12th grade or 10th grade marksheet. We need to be doing things of our interest EVERY single day. I do my job very good.. I know.. but I have to keep doing it everyday if I have to keep it. Similarly unless you put continuous efforts, you wont get continuous results.
If you want a reply to your post from me again, come back with an action item that you see as planned.

The right way to reform immigration.
An NRO Primary Document
Editor's note: This letter was released this morning by John Fonte of the Hudson Institute.
Prominent Conservatives and Civic Leaders Urge President Bush and Congress to Back Enforcement First on Immigration
Leading conservatives and civic leaders have signed an �open letter� on immigration declaring that �border and interior enforcement must be funded, operational, implemented, and proven successful � and only then can we debate the status of current illegal immigrants, or the need for new guest worker programs.�
The signers include William Bennett, Robert Bork, William F Buckley, Ward Connerly, Newt Gingrich, David Horowitz, David Keene, John Leo, Herbert London, Rich Lowry, Daniel Pipes, Phyllis Schlafly, and Thomas Sowell among others.
Hudson Senior Fellow John Fonte, who organized the letter, said:
�We want to commend the members of Congress who have supported enforcement first including 85% of all Congressional Republicans, 36 Democrats in the House and 4 in the Senate.�
�We particularly want to thank Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) and House chairmen Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI) and Peter King (R-NY) for their leadership role in putting America�s national interests in border and interior enforcement first.�
As a matter of organizational policy, Hudson Institute does not take stances on pending legislation.
�First Things First on Immigration: An Open Letter to President Bush, Senate Majority Leader Frist, and Speaker of the House, Hastert�
Recently, columnist Thomas Sowell wrote: �It will take time to see how various new border control methods work out in practice and there is no reason to rush ahead to deal with people already illegally in this country before the facts are in on how well the borders have been secured.�
We the undersigned agree with this statement. In 1986, Congress passed �comprehensive� immigration reform that included amnesty for around 3 million illegal immigrants, border enforcement, and interior enforcement (employer sanctions). Amnesty came, but enforcement was never seriously implemented either at the border or in the interior.
Let us not make this mistake again. We favor what Newt Gingrich has described as �sequencing.� First border and interior enforcement must be funded, operational, implemented, and proven successful � and only then can we debate the status of current illegal immigrants, or the need for new guest worker programs. We are in the middle of a global war on terror. 2006 is not 1986. Today, we need proof that enforcement (both at the border and in the interior) is successful before anything else happens. As Ronald Reagan used to say �trust, but verify.�
The majority of Republicans in the Senate opposed the recently passed Hagel-Martinez bill. Senator Vitter (R-LA) said that because border enforcement will not be in place, �this [bill] will in fact make the illegal immigration problem much bigger.� The No. 3 Republican in the Senate, Senator Rick Santorum (PA) said, �We need a border-security bill first.� Senator Vitter, Senator Santorum, the majority of Senate Republicans, and the majority of House Republicans are right � we need proven enforcement before we do anything else. Adopting cosmetic legislation to appear to be �doing something� about enforcement, but which actually makes the situation worse, is not statesmanship, it is demagogy.
We thank the majority of the Senate Republicans (33 in all) and the seven Democrats who supported the Isakson amendment, which insists upon verifiable benchmarks for border security before considering other issues. Moreover, we say �Thank You� to Jim Sensenbrenner, Peter King, and the bi-partisan House majority including 36 Democrats, that passed HR 4437. We may quibble with a clause here and there, but you in the House and the majority of Senate Republicans are right to emphasize that the Congress and the President must deal with enforcement first and other issues later. Stand fast; the American people are overwhelmingly with you.

tattoo THESE ARE GREAT BAJO SEXTOS IN
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!
pictures a ajo of this caliber.
I filed for my wife's EAD in the late May (e-file TSC).
Receipt date is May 29th.
Soft LUD on June 6th
FP done on June 21st
no updates, no changes after that. there is no LUD after FP. It's been 66 days since filed. Does any one know if I can take Infopass appointement before I complete 90 days of pending status and see what's going on? Or do I have to wait until 90 days are complete? any experiences?

They do that sometimes. No matter. They will pass on your message. I had the same experience with Rep. Hinojosa's office. Key is though to call all of the congressmen and let your concerns known. All the others were very polite in talking.

What kind of justice it is, where people are rewarded for breaking laws and those who followed it are made to suffer.
We are here in the US not only for ourselves but also for the better life to our children. If we can't give them that then our living in this country is worthless.
I also think that this issue should be part of IV top agenda among other things. The folks in question are not illegal but our very own in EB category. They are the greatest victim of the system. When I look at my sufferings , it is less compared to what these people are going through. My green card may be delayed but most likely will not be denied. Whereas, their green card is as good as denied.
While I am writting this and putting myself in your shoes, I feel helpless and hopeless. If IVians won't help here then who would?
agree 100% but I cannot see that IV will be able to assist us , so we will have to put our heads together
And what will happen if CIR passed. All 13 million will be in a category that will be most backlogged. Should they get all greencards before you?
Well, thats spillover... Its not that USCIS is going to allocate more visas for EB3 or more Visas. So spillover, yes!
