Our contacts in Washington have told us that there is a growing chance of a bill to recapture as many as 90,000 visas. The language of the draft bill that we've seen calls for a full recapture of the unused visas from 2000-04.
EVERYONE should contact their Congressman and let them know just how important this is
The above Email i got from Hammond LLC
What are you talking about? which bill? what 90,000? Care to explain???
5K = 3.106 miles.
So get into your car, set your odometer and drive exactly 1.55 miles and back. Then walk up there and back and time yourself. Not everyone can run; but even if you have been leading a sedentary lifstyle, you should be able to walk this distance in 45 minutes....even if you are short :)
If you find yourself struggling to walk 3 miles, believe me; you have bigger problems to worry about than a green card!

Yep... Lot's of line jumpers in 2006 and 2007
Many defenders of the bill used flawed socio-economic reasons to justify their *shameful and selfish agenda. Unused visa for ROW (Other countries) is NOT because there are not enough skilled workers from other countries but because the uscis/dhs use the quota to conservatively hence at the end of the visa year there are still many quotas left. ROW priority date has never been current for a very long time
Would you prefer to work with 7 immigrants from India and OR 2 from India, 1 from Germany, 1 from Zimbabwe, 1 from Argentina, 1 from Slovakia and 1 from Burma? The bill will not only hurt professional immigrants from other countries but also will hurt diversity, the core and sacred believe of American people
What a lame logic.
How does it matter from which country is the doctor/engineer/scientist is coming from
and with whom I am working.
Your commment sounds like coming directly from numbersusa or Lou dobbs.

Thanx Pappu, for helping in this campaign!
One more member to join by weekend!
Everyone, please add just ONE member!!!
You got it. Sen Menendez is a key member. Even though there is NO companion bill in the senate right now, we need his support.
Please hold on to the member list on the 1st page. As I said, we do have a reason why we are going with that member list. We will move as we needed.
I called offices. Please make sure that this list is also addressed. I do not understand why IV is ignoring this bill?

Inshkrish you have two RDs I mean you are July 2 filer how come your RD is in Aug, ND is in October so technically you are out of the processing window (but are you???)
My PD is close to you....but no movement ..........
Congrats to all those who got green today....the world is at your feet....enjoy it while you can...
There is nothing like processing window. What each center reports is their status. If you see page where processing dates are reported, they say if your receipt notice date is prior to date reported you can contact them. This suggests that they believe all cases upto the published dates have been processed. This does not mean that they are not permitted to work on cases after the published date. In fact they may have been working way beyond the published dates.

Further if EB4 , EB5 , and EB6 spill over is allowed , then up to PD Sep 2005 (EB3 ) will be cleared by end of Sep 2010.
I wish this was true, good to see your optimism. I am not trying to shoot you down, but all the numbers published and crunching says otherwise.
Do you have any formula/facts that you could share with us? Or is it just your hunch/intuitions?
Our only hope is recapture. We all need to unite and work towards one common goal.

we sent our passport to Houston CGI in March. We received a mail from Postoffice saying that we missed the Passport and asking us to pick up at the post office. since we were out of station, we missed it in the bulk of mails and by the time we reached, the passport was sent back.
CGI houston replied us asking to confirm if the passport returned to Houston, and on confirmation, we asked them how to proceed to get it back. We got a call the other day to my home where in the person from CGI Houston informed that the passport was sent back as the photos were not clear, and they again got it back.
Now, the passport is with them. Will going in person make the work easy? We are in Dallas, and thinking of this.

I opened a SR yesterday and today my CPO e-mail came to my mailbox. However my wife's status says
"On August 2, 2010, we mailed you a notice that we had registered this customer's new permanent resident status. Please follow any instructions on the notice. Your new permanent resident card should be mailed within 60 days following this registration or after you complete any ADIT processing referred to in the welcome notice, whichever is later."
Do you know what does it mean?:confused:
I am not sure whether opening a SR helped or not. Good luck to everyone. Remember GC is something but not everything in life. Being healthy and spending quality time with your family are more important than GC.
We just got greened this morning...was on the call with USCIS Cust Service to open an expedite request (a 3rd attempt!!) for my AP and when I refreshed the Case Status Online portal page...saw the LUD.
Says they actually approved and ordered card production on 8/2/2010...
Good luck to everyone else waiting...I know its frustrating...

I'm not saying that the idea is not without merit, it just wouldn't be appropriate for IV to participate.

And we are all subject to emotions and can make these mistakes as well where we forget to be civil.
I agree there needs to be more clarification on IV's goals and current pursuits....coming soon....a better FAQ page ;)
Correct, I don't represent IV. But here is my observation. Every time some one gets a response from ordinary members such as myself, these members asking so called "legitimate" questions, these members such as bitzbytz, rajuseattle et al, these guys will immediately cry foul, uncivil, being manhandled, abused and battered. If you want to have a debate, be prepared to handle the debate and don't pretend that you are melting when someone tells you that your idea is foolish. Either you want a debate or you don't. And if you want to have a debate then why not come up with a response in support of your arguments instead of engaging in name calling like "uncivil" etc.
I know when someone is asking a genuine question. Its no rocket science and I can tell when someone is genuinely asking a legitimate question and when someone is trying to throw mud on work done by others. It enrages me to see these people not doing anything but at the same time, damaging work done by others.
hairstyles wayne knight weight loss,
Looking back, would I re-do this GC process one more time - no, but am I happy to be a part of IV - you bet I am. Thats the bottom line.
Looking back, labor certification was the problem for lot of EB3 folks even though they were current at I485 stage. There was so much backlog (5 years or more) in certain states. While certain states could get the labor approved in a couple of months. People with older PD than yours could get greencards before Sept 2005. Smart guys changed their jobs and went to states where labor was quick. There was lack of awareness and easy availability of information as we have on IV now. Even now fortunate folks are changing jobs and filing under EB2 to significantly shorten their wait times. The whole Green card wait is a career killer for many and that is sad.
Between 2001- 2005 nobody did anything about the labor backlogs. The community was only anonymously browsing forums. There was lack of initiative and courage among the community. All people could do was look upto attorney or HR to do a miracle for them. I wish those folks between 2001-2005 did something like forming IV then. After IV was formed in Dec 2005 we focused our attention on Labor department to clear backlogs. Remember Backlog elimination centers? Folks today are just very fortunate that they can get Labor approved in a few months. I do not see the same amount of pain and desperation in the new people as I have seen in old timers. Many new filers still think that if their labor could come in few months, I1140 could come in another few months, their I485 should be coming in the mail very soon. It is only when they lose job, or their employer revokes their I140, or face problems in the process they start worrying about Greenecard, read more about what backlogs are and want to play an active part in IV.
My advise if you are dealing with CGI houston is Send your passport and forget about month or so you will receive renewal after month.
Use the following as a template to send all your contacts via email!!!!
*not a chain mail. a genuine request to be part of a democratic US bill-making movement* call YOUR Senator and at least one from the list below *
i am writing to you with a rather 'unusual request'. thousands of high skilled legal immigrants (especially from India and China) are stuck for between 5 to 10 years in the 'Green Card' queue with no 'end in sight' due to a broken system. previous attempts by groups like Compete America (www.competeamerica.org (http://www.competeamerica.org)) and Immigration Voice (www.immigrationvoice.org (http://www.immigrationvoice.org)) have been rebuffed by powerful lobbies and special interests.
if you are able to help, know that thousands will thank you. if you are uncomfortable, i will fully understand and seek your forgiveness for this intrusion.
if you know someone that will benefit from legal immigration reform (e.g. graduate students, etc.), do pass this message along. again, this is NOT a fake chain mail. check out www.immigrationvoice.org (http://www.immigrationvoice.org) to see how those forgotten in the immigration queue are trying their best to make their voices heard.
at a minimum, take a few minutes to see these colorful posters that highlight the issues at stake!
more on the issues
if you can do more, please call your Senator and at least one from the list below with the scripted message:
currently, Rep. Zoe Lofgren from California, has introduced a couple of bills that can provide temporary relief to thousands of tax paying high skilled workers.
HR 5921 Introduced to eliminate per country limits
H.R. 5882 introduced to restore approximately 218,000 unused EB visa numbers.
HR 6039 introduced to exempt STEM degree applicants from numerical limits
In addition, the Murray amendment was accepted in Senate Appropriations Committee by voice vote today.
"OK, enough of that mumbo jumbo" I hear you say :), "what can I do?"
Tell them that you would like to talk to some one who handles immigration/legal matters, If forwarded to voice mail, leave a VM. If the VM is full, you can get back to the main line by pressing 0 and then leave a message with them.
The message you have to deliver when calling these offices is
I would like Representative "Representative Name" to co sponsor bills HR 5882, HR 5921 & HR 6039 sponsored by Zoe Lofgren. All three bills have wide bipartisan support in the house and will help reduce the back logs associated with USCIS. These bills are a great first step towards immigration reform.
DO NOT GET INTO THE LEGAL/ILLEGAL DISCUSSION WITH STAFF MEMBERS
Only if the staff member bring up the issue of CIR, in that case say that -
In the past we have been supporting Comprehensive approach and still continue to support comprehensive approach and we look for our our main issues to be addressed whenever comprehensive bill is passed. However, this is is just an interim fix to begin or start the immigration reform process.
Senator Robert Menendez

ph (202) 225-2435
SIMPLY PUT -- please consider taking a few minutes to call at least one of the above lawmakers' offices with the above 'scripted' message. I am not a script-driven person, but the dynamics of law making dictates that simple messages about support for a Bill go a long way towards helping lawmakers form their opinion. This is DEMOCRACY and CIVICS in action :).
Will you take a few moments to do your bit to help thousands of hard working professionals and their families? In 1 day, Rep Cueller from Texas has signed on as a co-sponsor after receiving numerous calls.
