"Removing Bottlenecks in the Visa Process
By Felicia Escobar, Senior Policy Advisor for the Domestic Policy Council

Thank you for signing the petition "Allow Seriously Backlogged EB2/EB3 Beneficiaries with Their I-140 Approved to File I-485 and Apply for EAD & AP." The Obama Administration is committed to removing bottlenecks in the current process so that both applicants and businesses can meaningfully participate in our existing immigrant and nonimmigrant visa systems. Due to an outdated visa system that only Congress can change, too many of the world's brightest entrepreneurial minds are not allowed to come to the United States or stay here and thrive. Some have come to the United States, received training at our excellent universities, and then been required to leave. Others simply have been unable to find a path here in the first place.

Today, many I-140 approved beneficiaries from countries such as China and India must wait several years for a visa to become available because of statutory limits on the number of visas that can be issued to nationals of a particular country in a given fiscal year. The proposal outlined in this petition asks that beneficiaries of approved I-140 immigrant worker petitions be allowed to apply for adjustment of status while they wait for visas to become available, which would allow the accompanying interim benefits of an Employment Authorization Document (EAD) and Advance Parole -- in other words, the ability to work in the United States and to leave the United States and return while awaiting a visa. Unfortunately, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) cannot change the statutory requirement that a visa must be immediately available at the time an individual is allowed to file an application to adjust their status. This proposed reform can only be made by Congress through changes to the law.

Over the past year, top Administration officials have traveled throughout the country to talk with thousands of entrepreneurs and small business owners as part of listening sessions organized by the President's Council on Jobs and Competitiveness, the U.S. Small Business Administration, the White House Business Council, and the White House Startup America Initiative. The message we hear is resounding: our Nation's immigration system is broken and must be reformed.

The President has outlined his vision for restoring responsibility and accountability to the broken immigration system in the Blueprint for Immigration Reform (pdf), which outlines the challenges we must tackle and the solutions we must implement if we are to build a 21st century immigration system. The President believes that this will require:

Continuing to make border security the responsibility and priority of the federal government;
Holding accountable businesses that break the law by exploiting undocumented workers;
Making those living in the United States illegally take responsibility for their actions, before they can get on a path to legalization, by passing a background check, paying fines, paying taxes, and getting right with the law; and
Strengthening our economic competiveness by creating a legal immigration system that meets our 21st century economic and security needs. This includes making reforms to the existing employment- and family-based immigration system, including existing caps to ensure successful high-skilled immigrants are able to remain in the U.S. permanently.
The President is willing to sit down with any Congressional leader -- Republican, Democrat, or Independent -- who shares his commitment to fixing the broken immigration system so that it meets America's economic and security needs. We need leaders who are willing to engage in a constructive policy debate on this important issue.

As we continue to build support for legislative reform, the Administration will continually look for ways to improve the current immigration system, and we have proposed several important changes in the past several months. Recently, USCIS Director Alejandro Mayorkas joined the President's Council on Jobs and Competiveness in Pittsburgh to announce the "Entrepreneurs in Residence" initiative, which will utilize industry expertise to strengthen USCIS policies and practices surrounding immigrant investors, entrepreneurs, and workers with specialized skills, knowledge or abilities.

You can continue to act and help the Administration make lasting change to immigration. President Obama has called for a national conversation on immigration reform that builds a bipartisan consensus to fix our broken immigration system so it works for America's 21st century economy. But he can't do it alone. Over the last several months, dozens of communities have answered his call, holding meetings with local business leaders, faith leaders, law enforcement leaders and others to discuss the changes necessary to create a 21st century immigration system. He is asking you and other Americans to continue the conversation in your community by hosting a roundtable. Find out more and tell us about your roundtable at Fixing the Immigration System for America’s 21st Century Economy | The White House.

Thank you for making your voice heard. We greatly appreciate your interest and hope that you continue to share your views with the Administration.

Check out this response on We the People."

Final thought is Internet petitions are useless without active lobbying. White house petitions are useless and just a PR agenda from White house. Nothing has been accomplished from white house petitions which is quite evident from other petitions with responses.

The last time AILA paid for 3012 lobbying, was in September. They won't update on this anymore, IMO so whatever blah blah they do, wont cover it .... or so I hope!

Default Status of HR 3012 in Senate - last two weeks?

Good morning! Less than 2 weeks left, so any chance of HR 3012 passing and senate and bill finalized? I hope IV Core members can provide some light into this? If we need to reach out to our Senators/Congressmen, we would be more than happy to do it?

Best regards!

Really hope IV says something. I don't know why they are so silent. If not for this year, I want to know what is the fate of HR012 at this point. I hope IV understand their word is the only hope here, and what it means!!

Aren't you the same person who promoted online petitions? What happened to your petitions..........Why don't you give us updates. Did senators read your petitions and pass the bill? What is the timeline for the bill based on your petition campaign?

GCtorture,

We have to understand that IV leaders can only do so much. After lobbying for the bill its totally up to senate majority leader to bring it up for vote / file cloture / any other action or simply let it die. Plus all the senators also will have to agree to it. Its not that simple!

If there were any public updates we would have gotten them by now. But i am sure work still goes on in the background

I too check CSpan every few hours to see if 3012 is up or not....
Unfortunately is WAIT and WATCH situation. I know this sucks sucks but that's how it is!

I thought this thread, along with what's it is talking about are dead and gone. Surprised to see the thread resurrect, I hope the bill will miraculously resurrect it self and becomes the law.
