Start a business while waiting for your green card

There are plenty of us that got into the green card waiting line in 2007 or earlier. To me, it feels like it just happened, but it’s almost 3 years!! And we’re still in line, which hasn’t moved an inch. Many of us have an EAD (employment authorization document) as a result of being in [...]

My parents regularly pointed out other kids [...]

Sex, Lies, Videotape and Immigration

Prepare for more delay…

More reasons why it is unlikely that I-140 or for that matter, I-485 processing will continue to remian sluggish (it can’t get any worse, it’s rockbottom already for most of us) 1.
