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 [...]

USICE Announces Audits on 652 Businesses Today

USICE announced more audits in one day alone today than it did in all of the previous fiscal year.

Prisoners to the Processing Dates Paradox – EB3 Retrogresses in May 2009

Retrogression – Sounds like some mathematical concept (from regression, may be..)…But those of us that are prisoners to the immigration craziness in the US know that its not. In fact, it doesn’t seem to reflect any logic. Whether it’s the July 2007 sudden change in cut-off dates, or the H1-B caps that closed in 1 and 2 days [...]
