Case: (A-xxxxx-xxxxx) is still in process and official correspondence will be forthcoming.
Applications are processed in the order they are received. Once the Analyst reaches your case in their queue, based on the principles of FIFO (first in first out) it will be reviewed and official correspondence will be issued.
However, because each application is unique, processing times may vary depending on the specific circumstances of the case.
The policy of the U.S. DOL/ETA National Office prohibits the expediting of applications.
We apologize for the delay.
It probably wouldn't take them much longer to just approve or deny my case. It's amazing how they are quick with anything that is NOT productive. Don't you just love it when they used the term "FIFO" as though they knew what it really meant? I am a positive person but it's sad and enraging to me that I have to subject certain aspects of my life to a system so dysfunctional and about as modern as Flintstone's automobile. It's said that governments are designed to be bureaucratic, which I do not disagree with. But this system is terribly impaired and down right chaotic from time to time. That is beyond bureaucracy.
Many people in this society sometimes take on a very convenient attitude toward this issue. "If you don't like it you can leave." But on the other hand they turn around and bark just as madly when they think the government is not doing something right that matters to them. This is not about staying or leaving or any other such choices in life. This is about equal rights. This is simply about people getting their jobs done. To what's broken and what's rotten in the immigration system, I say we all work for a paycheck and we all have a job to do. Difference is I make sure I deliver what I'm paid for and you aren't capable of the same. For this reason I'll still be around right here long after you are eliminated and replaced.
Sorry for the 'rant' after I've exercised the only tool available in this situation, email inquiry to DOL, and received a totally meaningless but well expected result. Feel free to do the same then you can post it here so we can compare and see if they made any typo. I doubt they will because it has to be a simple copy-n-paste job...but again with them you never know. :o
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).

and you should be the first one to ask for action items (since I guess you have really donated 2400 dollars) ..or are you planning to donate 5000 dollars more without asking anything in return ? (yr money ..but as the saying goes ..a fool and his money soon part ways) ..well this is my last post ..bye and good luck !!
You are just incredible....a lot of talk in many threads but no real action....just suggesting, lets start an action item, run that campaign etc etc. When asked specific questions you ignore and now in protest, you want to quit ?
You asked a question and I answered in this thread, you conveniently ignored and yet keep calling for action, making statements of intent with no real action.
here is what I said in the below thread:
Here is the process that folks here have been told to follow in the past: come up with a basic plan (should not be a statement of intent but a proper sequential plan with steps), start a thread, contact core by sending them an email. Gather support in the thread while the core discusses and comes back with feedback. Whatever support in terms of logistics, money, advice, contacts etc are then provided by IV core who will work with a 'sub-team' for the proposal.
Just keep saying, lets start an action item blah blah....come up with a plan, not glorious statements of intent. Is that what you do at work ? Come up with pompous statements and expect others to work ? Let me guess, you are a CEO and just involve yourself in strategic thinking and do not want to muddy yourself with details ? is that right ? I do not see strategy either. If you are still logging in and reading this, atleast do a better job in your personal/professional life. Good luck.

Here is some information that may help you gauge the reality. There is lot of companies in US that would not fit into your definition of �Indian Companies�. These companies have filed for large number of H1s that too would have finished the H1 quota. If it is ok for an H1 employee to work for a shoe making company, then why is it �UNFAIR� for H1 employee to work for a consulting company?
Bottom line is:
1.) There is green card backlog for 6-10 yr. Any company would love to get an insurance policy that an employee will work for them for that long period. So one reason for this quest for H1 is due to delays in green card processing. If someone gets their greencard in 1-2 yrs., H1 visa approval will not get the employers any insurance policy for long term employee. And the demand for H1 due to this factor would subside.
2.) More importantly, even if demand for H1 would subside due to green card processing in 1-2 yr, the fact that unemployment rate is very low will still exist. Unemployment rate is making it hard for companies to find the right people at the right time at the right place. So companies are looking for ways to recruit the necessary talent, wherever that talent is available. IEEE wants all foreign engineers out of the country so that their membership base of engineers here, who do not want to learn new technology, could get the taste of late 90s. So for you to first attack a set of consulting companies and then cheer around the bill hoping that �the changes going to be introduced to fix the system will not screw us and complicate more the immigration process.� is exactly how it is going to play out. Infact, anti-immigrants will come to this site and cut-paste comments like yours into their report to strengthen their argument when they would go out to lobby in favor of this bill. So Best of Luck for your ranting.
For the sake of clarity, I do not work for a consulting company. But I realize that this bill could potentially effect everybody on this forum. Also, I see a racist attitude in this bill against the huge consulting industry. And this negative attitude against consulting industry will have a snow ball effect into rest of the economy and society. I don't think IEEE took that into consideration.
I have no problem with the consulting business. In fact, I had been working on this in my home country. The problem is the way we are or would be affected due of some them are not so transparent immigration practices which are mainly from India.
Let see this case, a company sponsor a large number of H-1B to individuals that does not have real job offer, but look for real jobs after they get approved, while a second person does have a job offer but cannot get it because the H-1B quota was reached very early.
Does this makes those individuals �the best and brightest�, while the second person not?
Knowing that there are very limited H-1B available per year, do you think this situation is FAIR for the second person or his sponsor company?
From last year information, who are the top ten H-1B sponsors? What they have in common, their home country or type of business? And it is not a secret that more than half of the whole H-1B where issued to the top two H-1B sponsor companies combined, and in a very short time. You don�t need to be very bright to figure out what will be their next steps to secure H-1B visas within their company. So I presume that all those top H-1B sponsors will compete again for their piece of cake, but more fiercely.
I have never mention to be in favor or against for any proposed bill. The apparently abuse of the system is what causing all this mess, which are the real more reasons to the anti-immigrant, but not my comments or your comments. For now it look like we will be facing a dilemma, not to be able to apply for the H-1B because the quota is reached before we can accept a job offer, or face stricter and harder rules that probably will make the application almost impossible. I only hope the H-1B can be regulated without impacting us negatively.

This is senate approval only. Doesn't it have to go through Congress also. Where are the votes in congress?
I also understand that there was no real intention on Kennedy to bring up our case. It was pure politics.
Please explain both points. Thanks

Don't contribute, come to DC and you will find & know all the faces behind IV
I am not one of those who can go advocate at places as I do not have luxury of it. I respect people who are going beyond their daily schedule and advocating, but what are the goals.
It is certainly not because I/others want to see the buildings that we are asking people to come to DC - and the people going in to the meetings will be advocating for their and your green card issues (whether you want it or not - these efforts will benefit everyone stuck in the EB backlogs including you!). Getting the green card backlogs cleared is the goal - and it is deplorable that after being a member since 2007, you do not know this.
I have been coordinating with IV for the past 2 years now and I have never had members (majority) - including you - once trying to find a way of helping in this cause. IV has had the campaign of meeting with lawmakers in their local districts at a time that is convenient for each member - IN THEIR OWN LOCAL TOWNS - and I can count my fingers and toes on how many have actually done it.
The sad part is that you come from a state that was successful in raising $1500 from members (in addition to the contributions to IV and air mile donations) and instrumental in sending 5 members fully funded to DC + 2 green card holders + 2 members buying their own tickets. The chapter is coming together in these circumstances and you are clueless....... of what is happening within your own state - Joining the chapter neither costs money nor effort, just the benefit of knowing what is happening within your state!
I however want to contribute not *donate* if I know what am I going after.
Contribute or Donate - if it is money - it is one and the same practically. I am not sure what you are going after, but I can tell you what IV is going after - clearing the EB backlogs.
For any advise the standard answer we get is - Consult your immigration lawyer.
We actually provide 4 reputed lawyers (Ari Sauer and Greg Siskind of VisaLaw.com, Raj Iyer of Offices of Carl Shusterman, and Prashanthi Reddy of Reddyesq) with whom you can get your questions answered for free 3 Thursdays in a month! Do you know about the conference calls that is done every week with attorneys - check it out in the members forum if you were unaware of it!
I dont want to dampen the interests of others who are ready to contribute. Tell me few reasons and I can contribute a decent amount.
Nobody in this forum or elsewhere said, "Mr/Ms bitzbytz - please donate the money to IV" And certainly no one is forcing you to do it either. There are requests for contributions from many members - because they believe in the cause - and their audience are fellow believers.
May be we should make this paid. and then I will find my reason and I will pay to join
We are happy with people who believe in the cause and want to donate. You are most welcome to use IV for free!
My answers are in Red.

Contributed to IV
This is just terrible, soemthing must be done and maybe we should all get together , exchange details via pm and try and fight if IV does not/can not/ or is not able to help us
What do I make out of this? U think once assigned to an officer thgs shud start moving? Or...even after getting assigned to an IO thgs can go bad? Has any thing of that sort also happened? Just curious so I can be prepared...
Just back from an Infopass appointment.
The lady was friendly and chked the status of my application. First she informed me that it was under review and then she told me that on Aug 3, it was assigned to an IO. I didn't ask any further questions as the news that my case has been assigned to an officer made me happy. I just wished her a good day and left.
Now, I'm beginning to wonder if I shud have asked more questions such as about Namecheck, FP etc...But I donno its with an IO and I guess I'll know the actual status shortly.
