    Pappu, I really lost my interest in this. After waiting for so long, I have come to a state where I find this to be not worth it anymore. I don't want to continue with this uncertainity any longer and my children are growing up and I want to move on in my life. Negotiating a good job offer for a good position. Its not that I am going to get my GC in 6 months or let alone in 2 years with a total of more than 8000 people ahead of me. So, I am looking at a minimum of 2 years wait and I do not think its worth waiting any longer. Getting a GC in 3-5 years seems tobe a OK wait, but more than 7 years, I want to use my time in something else more precious. Did not mean to hijack the purpose of this thread, just wrote it because you asked that question.

    Any reasons for R2i?

    Is it your EB3 wait?
    With a Jan 03 PD it is sad to see someone giving up after a 7 year wait and coming so close to getting current.

    There are just too many fond memories to share in one post... but I do want to specially thank leo2606 who drove 70 miles to pick up myself, venkygct, vsraja and punjabi at the Dulles airport and then took us out for breakfast, then to the rally venue, then for lunch, finally to a hotel room we had booked for a quick shower, basically... like a shadow he was with us wherever we wanted to go! And... whenever we thanked him (and gdhiren who co-ordinated pickups/dropoffs for many others like the 4 of us) these guys, instead of saying something like "You are welcome", would profusely thank us for flying in!

    Its people... like leo2606 and gdhiren.. and many others are the true strength of IV!
    Abhijit, great idea you brought your guitar along. It was good to hear some nice music at the rally. Thanks to you and Arun for driving & coordinating the sponsorships. Some good volunteers came out of that effort.

    and why do you think those courses are not taught in a foreign country?

    yeah but thats not the kind of training NIIT would provide you (Assembly level stuff, parallel programming concepts etc). Such training institutes teach you programming, what mundada was talking about is software engineering.

    I'm all for this. This is very close to my heart. I probably care more about this than I do, my 485 approval.(can't have one without the other, I know I know. But still.).

    I don't know when I'll get my 485 approved, hopefully within the next year. But I'm willing to work on this, whatever it takes - contributions, lawmaker meetings, DC.

    I'm in.

    This has got to be simple too. When the citizenship law was first drafted, immigrants got their green cards within months of entering the country. Start to End of the greencard process took under a year, if not less.

    The intention of the law was to have them learn the language, the ways of the country, and assimilate, which was expected to take about 5 years, before applying for citizenship.

    These days the green card process itself take over 5 years for a lot of people. Most Indians and Chinese in the EB2 category, and pretty much the entire EB3 category have lived here longer than 5 years. In those 5 years they have gone to school here, paid income taxes, bought homes, and learned the language (well they had to, in order to qualify for an employment based green card!). What more "assimilation" do they need to do?

    I definitely think that the following should be the criteria for eligibility to apply for citizenship,

    - An approved green card
    - 5 years of continuous U.S. residence starting from the date the 485 application was received.

    Let's do this.

    Logiclife, Looks like the statement that USCIS have to accpet the 485 applications all month on July inspite of availability of visa might not be true anymore. See below link

    I'm really concerned now, as like many I've also shipped my paper work to the attorney, but have NO control on when they are going to file.

    Anyway, we have to deal with all this.

    Slumdog, ANOTHER GOOD POST. just my good 2 cents to add for readers...

    I posted my experience of last 9 months on your peace of mind blog, and i agree with you on all accounts (on both blogs). But what resonates from your post is, how people could/will/would/shall/should perceive and is the perception of life that is becoming scarier than the life itself.

    What rings my mind is, why is being happy all the time so hard? Or, is it again the perception of what should be done to be happy - anyways, below is what stuck my mind after reading yours...

    Ultimately at the end and very basis we are human beings and we are allowed to commit mistakes. Each person/individual will have to decide what "mistake", "risk", "issue", "reality" is. For some its thinking through the heart and for some its thinking through the brain. If its heart then its risky and if its mind, its calculated. There are instances when both heart & mind have been right, and also where both have been wrong.

    Folks, keep your head high. You have lived so far and will in the future. Dont let a right fly you away and a mistake drop you. It is hard to live a life as-is, and with aspirations dont make it harder. Dream but dont hope.

    At least try to be happy, and pray for all the needy and help as much as you can.

    I see that most of you who are getting approved are 2007 filers. Any 2008 filers got approved?

    Also what is the number to call to Open a SR? Is it to soon to call since my PD is current only since yesterday. Folks who called to open a SR please let us know.

    Thank you.

    Looks like i got confused.....deleted this. The provisions to reduce the backlog were included in S.AMDT.180 , which has not even been voted..... the s.amdt.187 is something different. I guess we all got confused. The S.AMDT.180 has not passed senate.

    Hope you had a nice vacation. :p

    Couldn't resist. Please follow the FOIA thread that is in red.
    10,000 was collected and 2500$ advance was sent out to USCIS. Now we wait to hear back from them.

    may be USCIS will now issue bulletins every month for the next 5 years to tell us when we can expect that report. :eek::eek:

    Pappu, thanks for the initiative. I will contribute.

    I also have another suggestion. Why don't we also do a targeted campaign at partnering with corporate HRs to push for EB relief. Many corporate HRs are aware of the EB2 and EB3 retro pains. These corps rely on EB2 and EB3 folks for innovation and technology. Corporations have a lot of power in pushing legislation. I am just suggesting to try other channels as well. Corporates being just one.

    Here is a list of some major corporations in the Midwest to start with. Others can add to the list from midwest and other geographies.

    All State 2775 Sanders Road, Northbrook, IL 60062

    Do not panic. I have a very good experience with CGI Houston. So far I renewed four passports at different times. They take minimum six weeks to process the passports issued in India. The latest one I sent was reached them on September 24th and I got renewed passport on Nov 9th.

    Has anyone tried expedite requests .

    1)If so , did the expedite requests via fax help?
    2)The NCSC do not give us any fax number?
    3)What would be the reason we can specify for expedite requests?

    So far, there is no provision of 485 filing without priority date becoming current. Has this failed too? Just two weeks before Feb. 15th. I guess the fate of this provision is determined now.

    It seems that nothing can happen before Feb. 15th. Even the H1 increase has not happened yet. Democrats do not seem to be immigration-friendly as many expected before. No hope for CIR this year. No hope for SKIL this year. What a miserable situation!

    Nice post, i came to the US in 1996 for my masters, followed all rules to the T and got stuck. I am on my 4th AP and EAD (5th if you consider OPT). I think main problem is that we are trying to solve too many issues with limited ammunition. Start with a single point agenda for the short term...lets say recaptuing unused visas or something that is the least controvertial and focus on pushing it at every available opportunity. Currently we see a new proposal everyday and all they do besides encouraging debate (which is good) is motivate bystanders to distort the issue and divide the group.

    Agree with 485Mbe4001. We should focus on recapturing unsed visas. I dont think so we will see CIR this year. Before other groups pushes for Anti h1b or gc laws. we should start somthing on recapturing or removing country cap. OR atleast some admin fixes. I understand CORE is waiting for time to do aggressive campaign but what if dont get CIR this year ? I think We are thinking to play only defensive game here. If some one try to hurt us in H1b or GC bill then we will do campaign. Lets do not wait for antis to start.

    With PD of 2003 you are not far from getting the card in your hand :D

    I hope so. Some of my colleagues got their I-140 and I-485 approved at the same time when I-140 was filed with request to port earlier PD. I am hoping for the same...

    05-15 04:13 PM
    Ours was around 30 days after receiving the I-485 receipt.

    Wake up. Don�t take every word from Ron Hira as word of Gospel. This guy is the biggest thief and preacher of hate.

    If you guys are wondering who Ron Hira is , check his pic at the link below. Poetic Justice? Some immigrant (or someone born in a immigrant) family. How ironic?
