10/17/2007: Total of 60,000+ EB-485 Applications Adjudicated During July-August-September by NSC and TSC

* AILA has reported that during the period of July, August, and September 2007, Nebraska Service Center and Texas Service Center adjudicated 60,000 plus EB-485 applications. Since EB visa number was unavailable for the entire EB cases in August, presumedly a substantial portion of these cases could include those cases for which the EB visa numbers were pull out before July 2, 2007 in June and adjudicated throughout the period as reported by some I-485 applicants who reported that their I-485 applications were approved when the visa number was unavailable. Interesting.

10/23/2007: Senate Passed Legislation to Recapture 61,000 Unused Numbers for Allied Healthcare Workers

* In the legal immigration, the allied healthcare community has strongest lobbying groups in the nation. These groups were able to muscle passage of a legislative bill in the Senate yesterday recapturing 61,000 unused EB-3 foreign worker visa numbers for them. This bill was passed as part of the Labor-HHS 2008 appropriation bill. Reportedly, this bill faces two roadblocks ahead to make it into a final legislation. One is the White House that has been threatening to veto the Labor-HHS bill in toto because of the amount of spending. Second is the House that has to agree to the Senate version in the conference committee. However, the second roadblock does not seem to pose any serious threat as demonstrated by the move of some of Democrats in the House. Please stay tuned.
