Default Why is there Greencard backlog?

Has anyone thought about the root cause of backlog?

I think it not really more people. Only 85K people on H1B come every year. There are 140 K greencards. All H1Bs do not apply for greencards,

So the problem is country limits. Can someone calculate what would be the wait time if country limit is completely removed.

H1B quota doesn't count dependents (H4). Also, there is L1 visa and students. I believe the backlog is artificial. In the past, several visas were wasted due to the inefficient USCIS/DOL work practices. Backlog would clear if the Govt can recapture those visas but they are not willing to work on it. In a way, they are getting rewarded for not being efficient by collecting money on AP and EADís every year from backlogged EB applicants.

Default i had the same itch

so i started this thread some time back.

http://immigrationvoice.org/forum/forum16-iv-agenda-and-legislative-updates/1624320-read-the-law-regarding-eb.html

i also spoke to some more knowledgeable members and what they say is that
there was huge backlog in labor certifications and at that time visa numbers were wasted. so when labor certs were cleared and gates were opened for everyone in july 2007 huge number of people applied for 485. after 2007 no visas were wasted. but still it was not enough to clear backlogs from 2000-2007.
thats why we are fighting for visa recapture bill. this bill was introduced already H.R.5882, but did not go anywhere.
hope this helps.

Add at least one spouse to H1B numbers( Even excluing Kids) that is double. Plus L1 numbers. Then there are people who came on different visa applied with 245(I) benifits and their Spouses.

I believe H1B limit was 195,000 in FY2001, FY2002 and FY2003 and this is only Cap numbers. There are H1B's exempt from the caps. As said before by others on an avg 2.5 GC's per H1B/L1. L1 has L1A and L1B which has no limits.
Then you have TN visa for Mexico and Canada.

You have to consider all those into EB GC's.

You can not apply for GC while on TN visa.

Honestly there is only one reason, remove that everything will be normal. that is AP ( Andhra Pradesh) . because i said truth, i will get bombarded with red dots and other comments, there is a high possibility that i will be banned.

Sorry but that's the truth.
