Good news for EB2-ROW but more bad news for EB2-India

The November 2012 visa bulletin released last night and brings cheer for some and the regular monthly dose of disappointment for Indian nationals. EB2-ROW is now current – a big relief for those from countries other than China, India, Mexico or Canada that were dealt with a shocker last month. EB2-India did not move a [...]

Disappointment galore! EB2 Retrogression in October 2012 + STEM bill failure

There is no sugarcoating this – September 2012 has been a dark month for Employment-based immigrants. First, the October 2012 bulletin released the incredibly disappointing news that EB2-India retrogressed back to September 2004 and other EB2 categories, including EB2-worldwide retrogressed as well. EB2-worldwide was not current only for the first time in 20 years. More bad [...]

Provocative article in The Hindu regarding H-4 visa holders

http://www.thehindu.com/opinion/op-ed/article3700233.ece Nothing new to those of us. But I am glad the issue is getting more spotlight. The problem is the politicians in DC who somehow correlate everything related to immigation as the reason why America isn’t doing well. Isn’t it amazing? One half of them thinks immigrants are the driving force of the economy [...]

August 2nd USCIS memo changes everything for aspiring entrepreneurs..

USCIS made a very surprise announcement on August 2nd that allows aspiring entrepreneurs to start their single-person startup in the US and at the same time qualify to apply for a green card under the EB2 category or get an H1-B visa.

CIR reintroduced – but nobody looks excited..

CIR was reintroduced in the Senate today. Couldn’t have been timed any worse – with unemployment at 9.1%, talks about a slowing recovery from recession and jobs getting added at a paltry rate of ~50k jobs per month, it’ll be a miracle if it even gets discussed on the floors. Morover, with Republicans controlling the senate, [...]

EB-2 India and China move to March 2007- end of wait for many..

I could not actually believe it. A close family friend actually got his green card - he was on EB2 firsh a 2006 priority date. It feels as if it’s the first one in years that has got one! Very happy for him….one step closer to freedom. The EB-2 move in the July bulletin has made [...]

Need your opinion on a new way to offer consultations here..

So I’ve been real busy – like all of us I guess. So hardly any posts off late. Haven’t had much of a chance to post. Some requests for consulatations have kept coming in. The feedback from the attorneys is also that they would rather log in and type in their responses to questions instead [...]

Lots of new action in Congress…

Majority Leader, Senator Harry Reid, introduced S.6 bill  – COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION REFORM BILL – in the Senate to reform America’s broken immigration system, co-sponsored by nine other Senators. Quite a surprise that they are introducing it this early into the new Congress session. It has LONG way to go and I personally believe chances are [...]
