View Full Version : Complete portabilty after I-140 approval?

04-20-2006, 09:18 PM
Can we ask for a new legislation that will allow for complete portabilty after i-140 approval? If this is achieved I don't think retrogression/insufficient Visa#'s would be a big deal.

We have asked for an amendment to allow applicants to file for I 485 even when the dates are not current so that EAD can also be filed (which gives portability).

Please see the link "Amendments" on home page and look for Sen. Brownback's amendment.

This would be a limited portability - AC21. Correct? I'm saying approved I-140 for all practical purposes should serve like a temp GC. Maybe this is far fetched!!!

I think approved I-140 is the right stage. Why do we have to live in uncertainty after an application for immigration has been approved. It also makes sense to request AOS for 5+ years of H1 as well.

Surely won't fly.
I-140 doesn't belong to the employee. Period.

Then ownership of I-140 needs to change as well. Maybe this is something we could all work in the long term.... and not an immediate goal at this time. Of'course this will need help from everybody on the forums. Something like this is sure to help all of us.
