    I also want USCIS to count my legal presence in the US prior to obtaining permanent residency (GC) for naturalization purposes. (Canada does this - 50% credit for time spent legally before obtaining permanent residency).

    I want. I want. I want. :)

    Hello Friends

    We can not win this battle without attention from visual media like News Channel.

    Traditionally we Indians are known to be camera shy silent listeners. But without the news and print media this issue will not catch enough attention from Washington to be debated. So, we have to come out of our shells and share emotional stories over news media. An inexpensive way of doing this without having to travel to any place would be to just switch on our webcam or camcorder and speak. We have to speak about the pains and put it into a story format. The content should highlight on the inefficiencies in the system , the discriminatory policies and loss to America because of the system. We definitely have to raise the following 2 issues

    - recapture of lost visas over past years
    - Per country visa limit

    If we send thousands of these recordings as I-Reports to CNN over 2-3 days period, CNN will definitely do a story on our issue and that will catch public attention. We can decide to remain anonymous when sending the I-Reports too. We can probably do similar stuff with other news media. This will cost us nothing and will create enough news to drag attention.

    What's your opinion on this ?

    Go Outback tonight. Life will still be here tomorrow.

    Different things work for different people - whatever works for you or engages your time/attention, indulge in it in most of your spare-time and try to divert your "screaming" energy, constructively...

    I know it is easier said than done - but, this is life and no one said it's going to be easy...

    One of my friend always says "The best security if the money you have in your bank a/c". Rings true...:)

    As per murthy bulletin, EB3 India might become unavailable or will stay where it is.. If i interpret correctly. Looks like EB3 will remain the same. Very disappointing.

    I sent my 485 to NSC on JUL 3rd, my 140 approved NSC, no receipts from
    TSC yet. Does any body got receipts who applied on JUL 3rd...?
    If your 140 Approved from NSC then you should get receipts from NSC. Not from TSC.

    We finally got the CPO email for my wife and I today morning.
    Had done all the follow-up like SRs, Infopass, Congressman inquiry. Not sure what worked.
    After 10 years, we are finally greened. I sincerely hope for everyone who is current to be greened in time.

    Some details:
    EB2, priority date Oct 22, 2005
    FP done only once in 2007

    Your perspectives go well beyond what an average immigrant thinks about the whole EB system.

    I have seen people "NOT" being themselves and do everything at workplace ONLY because their GC is pending and they do not want to have issues with employer for the sake of GC.

    In my opinion, which also complements urs, the whole employment thing - if viewed from the eyes of a common man - one whose immigration status is not tied up with employer, is completely different.

    I have seen people facing cultural issues, community issues and a wide range of issues - such things get masked when one's focus is on the GC process, heck leave alone GC - people struggle for even getting h1b and maintaining it.

    It all comes down to priorities. If someone's aim to have GC at any cost, he/she will do everything to get to the finish line -- i.e. 180 days past I-485. In my opinion, GC process should be part of life, and it should not hijack 100% of time of highly skilled professional. No wonder, we see so many posts where person is waiting for AC-21 so as to get rid of "blood-sucking employer". For a neutral person, both employee and employer are using system to suit their needs.

    Some people will go the extent of using term "slavery", whereas, actually, their thought process is slaved to the GC process.

    And, employers know this very well and try to use to their advantage.

    A lot of people I talk to who come fresh out of school or have 2 years of experience or so, think that they have certain skills and employers would not live without them - whereas it is THEIR struggle to maintain h1b and also work towards GC on long run. All this is nothing but lack of thought process that people must apply but will not because their primary aim is to work out a sponsor.

    >> have 2 years of experience or so, think that they have certain skills and employers would not live without them
    You have described it very well. I have met many of such professionals while interviewing them for jobs. But, the reality is, these same professionals are scraed of their jobs being outsourced.

    Some are simple cookie cutter prgrammers and compare themselves to reasearch scientists and technologically superior.

    Another thing, I have noticed is that while on H-1B, vast majority of professionals claim that they are getting paid prevaling wages, but, on the other hand, they also claim they can make upto 50% more, if they had EAD or green card. Ironic! Isn't it.

    I am not blaming an employee or employer for this but this entire EB based system is set up in that way.

    You are right. These are the rules set by current EB immigration system.

    With this so called "exploitation" by whole Employment Based Immigrations, these professionals turn blind eye to whole thing after getting Green Card. Afterall they are, rightly, professionals.

    How many times we see any green card holder or citizen supporting fellow immigrants?

    H1 does not care for F1.
    EAD does not care for H1/F1.
    GC holder does not care for EAD/H1/F1
    Citizens wonder why immigration level is so high.

    Taking a quote from MTV Roadies program, each professional (roadie) is alone and has to look after his own best interests.

    Wonder if you happened to mention the time line question? One section in the "Guest Worker" chapter says it can not be implemented 90s before the study, would that only cover the "Guest Worker" section or the whole bill? The house will try their best to push an enforcement first approach, if they gain more on that, then we might end up with a bill passed but never take effect. That would be the worst situation.

    Today I spoke to a Representative who deals with immigration issue at Sen Mike Dewine's (R-OH) office. I spoke to him for 15 minutes to understand what he and his senator think about this CIR.

    Here is he and his senator feels about this bill. It is difficult for him to say that when CIR bill will be introduced in senate floor . It depend on Majority and Minority leaders to decide. Majority leader told to the media that he will introduce before the end of the may, he is mostly consistent, but there are several bills where he has committed a timeline and till today it is not on the floor.
    However he told that once CIR pass, legal immigration is already taken care of, but if it does not passes there are bills like SKIL which will be put before the floor. But CIR has to fail or pass before you see this SKILL bill on the floor.

    Please don't get me started now. Almost everyone on this forum lurks because of self interest. If one has to do public service , I would join a organization like CRY etc.
    Regarding yourself, you lurk on this forum to show you are better than others now that you have your "citizenship". I doubt you have contributed even a single cent to the cause or written any letter or contacted any lawmaker. And I don't blame you because you have no reason to do that.
    But I strongly suggest that you should get a life!!!

    >> You are talking about 2004, 05
    SunnySurya is taking about 2004, 2005 because his PD is Oct 2005. Its that simple. Just self-interest.

    If any of these do succeed to make it through the congress, does it mean that the retrogression problem be totally eliminated (at least for the short term)?

    unfortunately more than 80% of backlog elemination is completed, so labor substitution even though it is removed from july 16 has already done its damage. scores of people have already done labor substitution.

    How come they did not stop the substitution right away? Instead, giving it another month. Wish they gave the visa bulletin another month. :cool:

    I would try to contact FM 104.9 and AM 700 in Dallas both radio stations are delivering programs in Hindi and Urdu and to the extent very popular in SOuth Assian community. I would update here about my efforts.

    The radio station is called "Radio Salaam Namaste"....
