    Why dont USCIS clarify on the report they put out

    1. Lack of description and detail about what it is ?
    2. No time stamp on the report
    3. Provide some commentary and detail about the parameters used in the report.

    Becuase It is USCIS :D

So the fact that he wants to shirk his responsibilities in favor of foisting his own debt onto the rest of the country isn't his own fault, it's the "American Dream" that's making him do this. It's not exigent financial circumstances that are causing him to foreclose, it is greed and shortsightedness (colloquially known as "The American Dream"). Greed and shortsightedness already caused him to go 20K under the water. And they will now make him screw up his own credit history. If someone cannot learn from one mistake, I say let him keep making mistakes. He will soon find out how difficult life in the US can be if you don't have a good credit history. As for the burden on us taxpayers, hey, we've been spending 10 billion a week for the past 5 years dropping bombs on people, what's a mere 20K?

    If you are fooled once, blame it on others.
    If you are fooled twice, blame it on yourself.

    He didn’t think twice before buying the house. He bought because everyone was buying. Now he wants to foreclose because everyone is doing. Punjabi is not ready to learn from mistake.

    Aleast let us learn from him. Punjabi, please go ahead and do what you want(Foreclose). Also please update this forum with whatever you are going through. It might be helpful for others atleast.

    Hi Friends,

    I am really sick and tired of my attorney. He is making money out of immigrants but he does not like immigrants based on our dicussion.
    I think we are very well educated and can easily take care of 485 filing.
    My attorney will charge me at least $3000 for it although I got his referral from AILA. On top of that he delays filing my PERM and 140 and having serious attitude problem.
    I can easily take care of 485 filing by myself.
    My only and great concern is- Is my attorney can screw up my GC processing if I fire him and file 485 on my own?

    Your Thoughts..

    If you want only India calling, there are lot of good calling card companies, that they are offering better price than the above mentioned.

    Airtel call home - 9.99 + tax = you will get 600 mts - 45 days validity period
    relaible calling - 9.99 +tax = you will get 600 mts - 30 days validity period

    I am not talking about calling cards. ALLVOI is also a VOIP service like Vonage and has the same deal on free US calls etc. However, their India pkg is much better IMO.

    Let us call rumors as pure rumors, even if they are from individuals here on IV or from aila until the official agency release their report.

    Let us step back a bit and analyse it with just common sense.

    USCIS and whatever that other agency is, is not a fool to release a july bulletin and make everybody current. If they have made all categories current in the hope that they want to utilize all visa numbers then this is the height of stupidity. If that was their intent, they could have moved dates 2-3 months each month starting july till September.

    They should have prepared themselves for the flood of applications starting july 1st, and that is the reason for suspending the premium processing.

    Make PD's current and then goingback in just couple of weeks doesn't make sense at all.
    If someone has done this in haste then i doubt the overal integrity of this organization and its continuity.

    When i started the rumor of possible mid july retrogression, then that was based on the flood of applications that would go by july 2nd week. I am surprised that people are now talking monday or tuesday retrogression and a possible fresh bulleting from USCIS.

    Who would know the fresh july bulletin updates from USCIS other than USCIS and why would they leak that information before hand?
    Why should we beleive aila?

    Do an independent and individual assesment of this issue and go have a beer for the weekend.

    H1 Visa renewal (with a new employer)...earlier H1 visa was stamped in Toronto.
    I-140 pending at NSC since March 07
    Category is Schedule A (now EB3)
    I-485 pending at TSC, EAD and AP approved.
    There was no communication between the consulate and my employer. I guess it was just luck.

    wanted to check one more thing with you.. before how many days you submitted your documents to VFS center in mumbai? (they might have processed PMIS check earlier, after your document submission)

    thanks for taking time to post your details here..

    It is excellent idea to get citizenship before getting GC. Is it possible? Nothing wrong in trying. But main aim should be getting GC reform. Like this only everyone including IV started in 2005. In 2006 High skilled immigration groups including IV and Corporations lobbied for unlimited GC and unlimited H1b for masters in STEM from India and for all Master Degree from USA. After realizing the practical situation every year diluted the numbers and all of them lobbied for just recapture bill in 2008. Finally nothing was acheived in GC. You can try this idea also but better cautious that it should not impact GC reform.


    Why do you even need a GC, my friend. Stick with H1B visa. the only difference between GC and H1 is independence of employer and why do you even bother about it. You can always get a job where you want, buy a house now, sell it tomorrow, then after 6 years, go out for a year, come back on new H1.
    As I said, people here are highly motivated and do want to follow the rules and achieve bigger things in lives, creating value in the process. But not many are willing to wait for 5 more precious years, after your greencard takes 10 years. Or 15 years on GC and 5 years for Citizenship. Once you work very hard, then you tend to ask for the right fruit, not just take anything.And whatever the Citizenship requirements are.. they will be met while waiting for theis damn GC..
    I am just hitting at the attitude.. not person.. sorry...
    Assume your school makes your 4 year course extended to 6 years and in the process makes you do a lot more..What do you ask at the end of it. 4 year degree or a 4+2 year degree.. .something similar..

    Remember the lambi race ka goda.. He didnt pick the coin tossed at him.. anyone.. which movie.. ???

    @ fatjoe:

    "With an IO" and "Assigned to IO" is the same, according to me. You need to ask them whether the IO has actually picked up the app. They use a bar scanner to update the status in their systems. So, ask, can you tell me if my IO has physically scanned my file and picked it up from the holding area? If yes, good.

    I just tried the POJ method and it does appear to be blocked. Bummer.

    I guess we'll need to ADD to that number:
    1. BEC stuck folks who could not file in July 07
    2. PERM approvals starting August 07

    to the 47,728. Plus multiply by 2.1( for dependents ). That'll give the total VISA numbers required for this category to make it Current.

    If I have to guess-- (1) would be very less, may be 100-200 max
    (2) around 5000 ( just a PUMA)
    So, there are about 53000 EB2 I applications. and 2.1 * 53000 = 111300.

    If we can create 111300, EB2 I visas then it'll be CURRENT. easy:)

    They haven't mentioned there whether dependents are included or not. So multiplying by 2.1 is probably not correct nor wrong at this point. I would think dependents are included in this. Everybody needs to file an I-485 I presume and they are just counting the pending ones.

    Hello eb3_nepa

    1) (copy 1)please send a separate letter to the President.
    2) (copy 2)Send a copy of that letter to IV. After the letters are sent to the President, IV will have a meeting with senior administration officials. In that meeting we will carry the copies of the letters and deliver to them.

    Thanks Pappu. Will definitely send in those letters. Dunno about the handwritten part (The white house may not be able to quite decipher them) but will send in those letters.

    I sure hope that it is not a denial. In any case, I am preparing for the worst and trying to save some money to pay the lawyers for an MTR...

    Hope your I485 is fine, please update us if you see any change in status or LUD's on 485. Good luck.

    Ditto here. We need to give them specific case# to look into in the next phase of the campaign.

    I received the same thing. A canned reply asking to use their phone lines for inquiries. They returned my original envelope as well as my letter :rolleyes:
    No responses from anyone else.

    01-08 03:37 PM
    I will participate in this wholeheartedly. One suggestion to the admin: perhaps we can post this in other websites also like ? I know a lot of people use that site for posting problems etc and whoever is not in IV might also get to know about it.
