June 2007
EB2 I - 01 APR 2004


July 2007
EB2 I - Current


This is what July 2007 Bulletin said about future movement--

All Employment Preference categories except for Third “Other Workers” have been made “Current” for July. This has been done in an effort to generate increased demand by Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS) for adjustment of status cases, and to maximize number use under the annual numerical limit. However, all readers should be alert to the possibility that not all Employment preferences will remain Current for the remainder of the fiscal year. Should the rate of demand for numbers be very heavy in the coming months, it could become necessary to retrogress some cut-off dates for September, most likely for China-mainland born and India, but also possibly for Mexico and Philippines. Severe cut-off date retrogressions are likely to occur early in FY-2008.

August 2007
EB2 I - Unavailable
(EB 2 was unavailable for all countries. Even EB1 was unavailable for all countries.)

Visa Bulletin said, all numbers got utilized so ....( How can EB1 becomes unavailable, if mass filing is done in EB2 not in EB1 !!!. It tells great story about how people operate in USCIS building. They might have seen pile - more than 60,000 - of applications, and they would have assumed its mix of everything so they had even EB1 unavailable. This clearly tells its highly inaccurate counting system they have. It might be stone-age counting system they are using)

September 2007
EB2 I - back to 01 Apr 2004 !!



July 2008
EB2 I - 01 Apr 2004
(He He ... 1 year .. no change !! )

July 2009
EB2 I - 01 Jan 2000
(yes 2000 !! - back dated ... as they said, in July 2007 bulletin, they severely retrogatted the dates. They kept their words, at least, somewhere )

July 2010
EB2 I - 01 OCT 2005


July 2011
EB2 I - 08 Mar 2007


July 2012
EB2 I
- Severely Retrogatted ??



So, history tells a lot, about how they operate, how their calculations operate and how their mind works .... They have NO clue on demand (or atleast they show that way ), and they have NO clue on when to open the dates.

People who got current in 2010 or 2009 .. I guess, the joy is temporary .. Soon there will many who will be stuck with EADs, only 2 industries will get financial gain (1) Lawyers who help transferring on EAD etc (2) USCIS who got I-485 application fees + USCIS who will get application fee for EAD transfer etc.

That doesn't mean that it is not time for celebration for people who got current, it's just -- it is also moment not to ignore the realities / numbers and not to ignore support for HR 3012 ... I am EB-2, so not biasing it from EB-3 perspective ...


Cheers,
I doubt they don;t have numbers. They have all the numbers only thing being that they have power to play around with them....
