Thank you for visiting Endlesswait.com. Your support and participation can help us in our fight for rights and fair laws for legal immigrants to the US. EB-3 isn’t moving.

SKILL ACT of 2010 Introducted in Congress

This is a piecemeal act that includes all of the stuff that CIR would have for skilled legal immigrants. This includes provisions to reduce the visa backlog, H1-B reform and F1 student visa reform. SKILL ACT of 2010 I’ve stopped getting too excited about just introductions of new bills. It all depends on how it’s [...]

Fortune talks about role of immigrants in the country’s growth

An Immigrant’s Story – Part 1 – The first time..

Most of the readers and authors of this blog are immigrants to the US. We all have a story, don’t we?
