Needless to stay in the first few years India, China, Mexico and Philippines are the primary beneficiaries of the FIFO system as these countries are backlogged. After that, it is whoever applied first, regardless of which country. No one in a certain EB category will get a green card before anyone else with a older priority date in that EB category.
Lofgren amendment which was approved by the Judiciary Committee removes transition rules for EB1, i.e EB1 will have no country limits right from the beginning (it does not really impact EB1 as they are always undersubscribed)
I second your opinion.

It will depend on how many labor already cleared and pending for filing 485.
With the current pending I 485 status in OCT -2012 , India EB3 may get cleared till Dec -2004 and India EB2 may become current .

EB2 will be 01-JAN-2009; EB3 will be 01-JAN-2004. Some of the allocation for this year has been consumed already that must be taken into account for any projections.

And that is totally fine, it is intended for everyone's benefit. But it will be great to have everyone's support to get us across the finish line and is much needed.
I agree.

anyone who feels bad about posts being deleted please think abt the damage it might cause to the families waiting for years and struggling. unknowingly there might be something negative in your post that might help antis.

It is possible that the December 2011 Visa Bulletin would advance EB-2 India and China to at least March 1, 2008 or even further. Similar forward movement may be expected in the January 2012 and February 2012 Visa Bulletins. Mr. Oppenheim cautioned, however, that if there is high demand (number of filings) in the EB-2 category, he may hold or even retrogress towards the summer of 2012. He noted that there is usually a 4-6 month gap between filing of an I-485 adjustment application and when a visa number is actually requested and allocated — this means that EB-2 India and China I-485 applications filed in the fall will be need visa numbers in spring/summer of 2012 and this is when retrogression may happen.
Friends I would urge all to take all postings at different places and predictions everywhere including here based on your judgment and not literally at face value. It is very kind of CO to have shared with AILA about the Dec and future VB's however there is always a time lapse between that time and when the bulletin is declared. Since the situation can change in that time it can cause swings and changes to the final outcome. I hope that the dates move in the next bulletin itself because the I140 approvals are surging and EB2 ROW and EB1 inventory is rising these do not augur well for SOFAD. However since the 01-MAR-2008 comes from the man himself I hope it materializes.

Default Approvald Compate Oct 2010 / 2011

Friends following are the Other Site comparisons for 2011.
EB2 ROW 2010 - 25
EB2 ROW 2011 - 63
EB1 (A+B+C) - 2010: 8 + 6 + 5 = 19
EB1 (A+B+C) - 2011: 3 + 2 + 20 = 25
Last yearís SOFAD was 30K lets split it as EB1 - 12K, EB5 - 6K, Regular Cap - 5.5K, EB2 ROW 6.5
- EB2 ROW usage is drastically down by 60%. This could really be good for SOFAD. If this trend continues
Then EB2 could well be providing very significant SOFAD.
Letís assume decline to be 30% instead of 60%. As smaller figures do not mean smaller scale down literally they should be factored.
EB2 ROW SOFAD will be - (40-5.5) - 70/100 (40-5.5-6.5) = 34.5 - 19.6 = 15K.
- EB1 is overall in the same range down by 25%, however looking at the figures looks like the Kazarian memo is playing havoc with EB1 A & B diminishing and EB1C growing 4 fold.
Looks like EB1 should maintain the 12K SOFAD. Itís a must that the Kazarian trend is maintained or ROW decline should compensate it.
Despite high 485 inventory and high 140 figures the Other Site trend for October is highly encouraging. This is very early days however last year this early lead was very correct. With this early trend I believe that last yearís SOFAD level may well be maintained but letís make note that itís an early trend and Other Site represents only a small sample of data but the great advantage is that its well organized. For October yet another explanation could be that CO is giving away EB1, EB2 ROW and EB5 excess to EB2 I/C on a monthly basis if it is literally true.
If last yearís SOFAD level is maintained then everyone in 2007 will have GC in hand by Sep 2012, however the other indicators suggest lesser movement than this. To take the Other Site trend concrete another 2 months of observation is required. The agencies IMHO must maintain 2 months as a buffer. Letís all hope the Other Site trend holds.

These are just my personal beliefs. The movement will happen only in the Dec bulletin because definitely a wave is coming by I140 and I485.
The date range could be 01-JAN-2008 to 01-MAR-2008 (Date From CO).
Actual approvals i.e. GC in hand will range from 01-NOV-2007 to 31st Dec 2007. The Other site trend indicates the higher end for now otherwise with the wave of I140 and I485 it may well be the lower end.

Teddy,

Can you explain this "a wave is coming by I140 and I485." .
i think we know how many i-140 are ready for 2008 & 2009 as they are all approved & waiting for I485

People can expect some good movement in Jan bulletin that comes in Dec. Probably March 2008.

You can have a look at the latest I485 Inventory and USCIS I140 dashboard.

Teddy: I am sorry but I didn't understand the range (01 Nov 2011 to 31st Dec 2011) you provided for GC in hand. What priority dates you are referring to here?

My apologies there was a typo I intended to refer to 2007, original post corrected.

Actual approvals i.e. GC in hand will range from 01-NOV-2007 to 31st Dec 2007. The Other site trend indicates the higher end for now otherwise with the wave of I140 and I485 it may well be the lower end.

Teddy - My PD is Feb 2003 (EB3-I)....Any predictions on when it may be current with or without HR 3012. My lawyer is also working on submitting a pre-certification labor with EB2 and he said the entire process can take 12-18 months. Just wanted to make ur predictions.

Also, another query...i applied for 485 in July 2007 and got married later. Lawyer said that my wife's 485 has to be applied within 2 weeks or so of my date becoming current, else it may be an issue. Any advise? Thanks!
