EB2, Eb3 Update - Freedom of Information Act
Folks,

http://www.usdoj.gov/04foia/

There is one way to get the info to make us understand where we stand.

If we can ask a US Citizen (or a group of US Citizens) to petition congress for exact figures, by "Freedom of Information Act" Govt has to provide the following statisitics.

1. Number of EB1, EB2, EB3 Applications received. (IN, CN, Mex, ROW)
2. Number of EB1, EB2, Eb3 Approved (IN, CN, Mex, ROW)
3 Number of EB1, EB2, EB3 Pending Numbers (IN, CN, Mex, ROW)

4. It would be wishful thinking, Ask Govt to remove the duplicate applications, if they find a EB2 and EB3 pending, remove one of the applns, to reduce processing times. (Or give the privilage to the applicant to choose a better PD).
----------------- XXXXX------------------------
This will indicate the exact numbers. But you also have to taken note of the duplicate filings, meaning Eb3, having a pending EB2 Appln as well. This number cannot be detected correctly.

Can we pursue this idea with the lawyers, this request can atleast make Immigration team accountable.

This sounds like a bright idea to me.

I was not aware that we are in so much dark, we do not even know how many applications are ahead of us.

It would be just great if if the que is transparent to us.

What can we do?

I would say Step 1.

Ask Our advisory lawyer committee to use the Freedom of Info act to use its muscle and give publicity in press about this request. INS has to put the stats out.

If they do not come out, we can always - bad mouth INS for its inefficiance and its inability to provide accurate data

if they come out with stats, then we will know what the realities and even ask INS why they are taking so long..if the numbers reflect that they are inefficient, again Press can be a vehice.

We need to go on offensive in high gear, time for changing gears in our approach. We all went with lawyer advice and did what best earlier. At this time we either get it or go home, but we will know the end result soon, instead of living in "DISNEY LAND"

Remember in one of the Lou Dobbs Show the Programmers Guild is asking information about the H1B data and that guy responded saying that it costs $4500 - $5000 approximately for any/some kind of information from CIS/BEC whatever that is.
