I think its just one small paragraph the lawmakers have to insert - They can attach it to any major upcoming bill - This does not create additional numbers or change the existing laws in a big way.
Here is the ombudsman report (Refer page 47)

btw, I forgot to mention. I thank the IV members for their invaluable guidance. Will continue being a regular member.
CPO = Card production ordered.....my understanding is that the card will be produced after the application is approved. So CPO = you got yourself an approval.
What is the current processing time for Labor? I heard it is taking very long like 8 to 10 months? Is this true or is this based on processing center? If so which processing center takes how long?
2011 Roselyn Sanchez,
I do see the 'argumentative Indian' of Amartya Sen in many here ... nothing wrong, that's what we are, so let's not get heated up...
I have seen IV grow over past 3-4 years from a small enthusiast group to a broader issue driven organization. When I was stuck in backlog, IV was the place to come and share my anxiety and hopes. It was then, that I decided to support IV on a regular basis.
Of course, you might want to provide support only for certain issues, but at the end of the day, organization needs money to sustain itself and to make itself visible. If you have been to Washington, then you would have noticed that there are almost all interests represented by lobbies. Lobbies make smaller interests visible to Washington. And IV is trying to raise visibility for all of us!
Isn't this a good enough cause to contribute? For those who want to see the IV credentials, we have forums where these are listed, but as of now we have a chance to raise our visibility in the crucial time of immigration reforms and we should grab it by both hands!
I think July visa bulletin would bring some good news when numbers for the last quarter along with the spill-over (if any), are released. If USICS is not as efficient we may even see some good advancement. Don't loose hope guys!!
It is explicitly mentioned that quota is over for "year".

2010 Roselyn Sanchez,
July bulletin is OUT and NO more significant movement. Donot hope for future bulletin . Please call Lawmakers ASAP. Unless we take action USCIS is not going to do anything. Situation can be worse once we head towards election season. Still we have 1-2 months to get things done or we will be waiting for years to get green card OR EAD ( For some folks ).
It is just 10-15 minutes need to spend to call. Let them know WHO WE ARE AND WHAT ARE OUR ISSUES .
I request all of you to call , if you have called then ask your friends and family members to call.
Now its time to act. If we dont take action CHC will not allow to move ahead our 3 bills.
CALL NOW .... and Spread this message to everyone.

Dude, now again you are taking it personal.:) Just because I replied to your post, you think everything was directed at you. Do you seriously think I have anything against you? That other guy masternyc is mentally retarded, not you.
But I do respect if any non GC holder go and buy a home.
I agree with your point about defaulters. But take your argument elsewhere.
In California, a musician who claimed 100K income/year was asked to stand in front of his home with his musical instrument and photographed. That photograph went into Washington Mutual's file as income proof.
I have heard this argument zillion times. So you are saying the musician should be bailed out, right? Dude, such musicians need to do 10 years of time! Instead, they are just declaring bankruptcy and walking away with a spoiled credit. And you seriously think they won't get loans in future? Sure they will. Loan interest is basically what a consumer bank profits on.
If you think, the housing crisis is because of defaulters, you are partially wrong! Prices went very high and people couldnt buy and that is the reason home prices went down. Since it went down, loans backed up by those very assets lost value. And people defaulted because what they owe was higher than the value of home!
You are really delusional if you think non GC home-owners are to be blamed for this mess!
No, you are partially wrong! Prices didn't come down because people couldn't buy. They crashed because of the huge number of foreclosures. Otherwise, you would have seen them stagnated for a while and then starting climbing down.
Did I ever say non-GC home owners are responsible for this mess? Now, you are drawing your own conclusions and attributing something to me which I never said :D.
All I am saying is folks who are forced to return to their home country should clear off their dues. That's all. Nothing more, nothing less. I have seen a friend who wanted to run away leaving his car behind in the mall in 2001. I advised him against it despite he saying I'm not coming back, not coming back. Finally he did the right thing, returned with $0.0 and he did come back in a year. People always come back, especially when they are forced to return against their wishes.Not clearing off your dues is absolutely criminal. And there is huge, huge difference between $20k car and $700-800k house in SF Bay area.
Finally, I think you are also partially right - even today the banks don't have proper checks for mortgages. The rate is down upto to 4.5% and there is not much change in the policy. All that 20% down thing will never happen in anytime in near future! There are just no takers!!
You really need a good tax refund from the government! File your taxes soon!
Another assumption. I always underpay my taxes and give thousands and thousands back to the govt at the year end. California tax board is bankrupt and most likely going to issue promissary notes, if you haven't heard. I don't trust this bankrupt governments.
We're all (mostly) techies.... we should be able to fix this and deliver higher SLAs for our web site...
Available to contribute and volunteer if required for this, as the core already knows. :)
Strike while the iron is hot, we need to continue this effort and send letters to all the representatives who are in favour of immigration - legal. Can we get a list of all such senators / congressmen/women?
continue the effort

Deadline = April 30th, 2011
Goal = 5000 votes on survey (see I-485 filing w/o current PD thread) and momentum to continue with this campaign.The survey is a platform to gather and push for launching action items. Based on response by 04/30/2011 - IV will decide whether to even proceed with initiative or not.
Actions - 1) Vote on survey.
2)Email email@example.com with PD, ph#,email & subject "I485 filing impacted�,
3)Print/Circulate Fliers and spread FB, wiki link (see "support thread")
This is a supporting thread to the "Want to File I-485 without Current Priority Date? Gather here" thread started by pappu.
As suggested by pappu/starsun, this supporting thread provides impacted members with additional information and tools to help the initiative.
Visit Immigration Voice Wiki (http://immigrationvoice.org/wiki/index.php/Employment_Based_Green_Card#Process_.28EB1.2C_EB2. 2C_and_EB3.29) - for overview of Employment Based - Green Card process
Visit I485 Filing w/o current PD Wiki (http://immigrationvoice.org/wiki/index.php/Current_Grass-Roots_Initiative_-_I-485_Filing_without_Current_Priority_Date) - for overview of this initiative
As pappu stated in the first post of the above referenced thread - some of the ongoing efforts include finding how many IV members would get benefit from such a provision and get basic details such as username/Priority Date of impacted members. Future action items might include drafting documents and letters to support this provision. There maybe actions such as sending emails etc. However we would not be able to open a public action item unless we can have thousands of our members willing to participate in a grassroots action item. This survey intends to understand the needs of our membership for this provision and collect grassroots information.
The fact is we have a dedicated group of volunteers (and we need more) who have been trying their best to spread the message about this initiative so that a strong grass-roots support can be created leading up to launch of the public action items. So far we have around 1100 people who have responded. Based on quick calculations carried out using PERM data, it is estimated that there are at least 60K-70K EB applicants waiting to file I-485/EAD/AP (this is a very conservative estimate..the actual number could be much more). Grass-roots initiatives require time and patience and we request maximum number of impacted folks to participate actively.
What can you do to participate?
1) Vote on the poll/survey created by Pappu.
Then please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org (starsun) with subject - "I485 filing without current PD - Impacted Member". Include your a) IV username b) Email address c) Phone #, d) State of Residence e) Priority Date - so that grassroot efforts can be coordinated
2) Print out below Flier and circulate at all asian/indian malls/groceries/theaters. Forward the flier to your friends/co-workers and ask them to do the same.
I485 Filing Initiative Flier (http://immigrationvoice.org/wiki/images/a/a8/Flier_I485_latest2.pdf)
3) Volunteers have created a facebook community and an Immigration Voice WIKI page to spread the message about this initiative. Please circulate these links among your friends/co-workers who will be helped.
Please "Share" and "Link" and "send to friend" the facebook community via your Facebook account. Also include these two links when you post on the IV forum.

IV core needs to come up with new campaign too. if not now, then say 3 months from now. it definitely needs to come up with something ..either to highlight our problems / contributions or for something like recapture.
without meaningful campaigns, increasing memberships or donations is an illusion !!!

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..

while on H1-B status, one can do intra day trading in stocks, options, and/or futures, he/she can NOT claim trader status on federal tax return. Person on EAD can claim trader status and claim some trading related expenses to save tax on it.

The most important threads are always locked. Guests who would like to read can sign up, others atleast having other threads open gives them a chance to get familiar and build trust.
This is not a day trading strategy but a derivatives trade.
I can post a few breakout runners in the AM but would like IV core's consent to do so. I can post runners in the chat so its faster and easier
Once I get a go ahead I will post some
I strongly suggest to WATCH WATCH WATCH the trades and not jump without knowledge of the trades.
Again make a portfolio on google /yahoo or any other portal and watch the plays . Keep an eye on the volume / News of the trades.
Just a side note :
SAY - Satyam went into the dumps from 12 to .01 IN 2 WEEKS . NYSE dint trade it for 3 days . Today it opened again at 1.10 ---hit bottom of 0.78 and high of 1.77 .
So a PDT watches for these breakout . If any one entered this stock at AROUND 1.00 earned anywhere from 50-75% on it.
Why did it rise ?? Market plays on humna sentiments ...early morning news broke out that there "MAYBE" a govt bailout. sending SAY skyrocketing.
Traditional investors may differ from my opinion....but then This is not for traditional investors sorry!!!!
If you ask me ....I suggest just use your disposable income ONLY STRICTLY to play to learn . Start with as low as maybe even 500 bucks .
Initially just play on the portfolio without money to see how you fare. As you learn you will be more confident
Hallo Sir, with all due respects, if you read carefully what the original post was, you would understand that its just another frustration arising from an individual who has / would spend around 40-50% of the avg productive life to achieve identification with the country he/she has contributed tremendously. Here nor the degree matters nor the salary matters, what matters is as he mentioned how many years you have been legally permitted to remain in this country. Regarding law of land, remember that the US is very close to permitting aprox 11 million undocumented people the road to permanent residency and citizenship. For which I believe a 10 year waiting period has been prescribed with fine payment. If such a rule can be thought of, why not count the number of years you/me are in this country working to enrich the economy + maintaining the inflow of cash into the social security/medicare etc. Please dont mininterpret me to be against the policy of granting legal status to undomented workers, definetely not. Now whether what the initial post suggests is ever going to happen is questionable, but his/her request for more respect is very much justified. Nobody (doesn't matter whether you are a junior/senior/moderator) has the right to ridicule another persons opinion unless that post is deliberately aimed at ciritisizing the IV agenda. Please honor each others freedom of thought and expression, OK. Thanks.
