"Let's see if we can all help IV with moving HR3012 in a positive direction. Sign the petition at Please Vote 'Yes' on HR3012 | Petition2Congress "

IV-core,
Should we do this petition2congress.com email/print mails?

EB3 has very little hope and even with HR 3012 there will still be some wait and most probably it will only help people having priority date before 2006 since ROW is at that date. But HR 3012 should decrease wait and bring more realistic wait rather then 20-30 yrs which is totally unreasonable. I would say EB3 people having enough experience should try to go to EB2, its not straight forward easy change but not impossible.

This is a rule making and not a bill. This can be a small victory and provide relief for lot of EB3 category applicants!.

IV, Can anybody help to bring this to DHS/USCIS attention? HR 3012 will be a big win, but this one will also provide a lot of relief both mentally and financially. We have attempted several emails/phones but no positive response from the ]
Please do not spam the officialsl. And what was the purpose of posting the contact in the post. It will create more spam. Spamming is not appreciated. This is not how things work. It will only harm your own cause. Wish rules and bills can get passed via sending emails and phone or online petitions.
But it is not so. It all needs a lot of advocacy. And advocacy needs everyne to spend lot if their personal time and resources. Please start by supporting IV in our efforts. This issue has already been on IV agenda. But we have to work smartly and see what is best and how to work at different times. By saying h4 spouses are suffering , forced to stay at home by not being allowed to work in your communication, you have damaged your own cause with the officials. Such kind of misguided communications must be avoided. Why will us government help this issue only because h4 is not allowed to work or wants to go through the market test of h1 visa? Especially when unemployment is high and there is pressure to make rules strict? Your communication should have been on how allowing h4 will benefit the country. And not just benefit you as an individual.

Please get active in IV. You will learn a lot about advocating . Support us by subscribing to monthly contributions so that we can work together to get relief. Attend our events when asked, volunteer and help get more people involved. Strength is in numbers and if we have good support no relief is impossible.

I am not sure even Hr 3012 would be of geat help to EB3. Little better than what we have. Concurrent filing of I-485 with I-140 would atleast let us have EAD and AP and give us flexibility with job and travel. This will benefit every one EB2 I/C, EB3 ROW. I am not sure why we are not pushing this.

Pappu, Thanks for the clarification.

1. We have contacted the DHS official only on the status of the rule making and have not mentioned anything else. We will not contact again them again as per your suggestion.

2. The US government has to attract high skilled workers and support their spouses and make it attractive. Currently, there is shortage for local talent in High skilled engineering. Google MS all wants smartest people from the world. Not everyone's spouse comes under H1B skilled list. I have friends that have moved to Singapore and other countries around the world with easier immigration options.

3. We would like to invest and open a business. Unfortunately, there is no startup visa act that allows to open a small business easily. I would like my spouse work and create jobs about 5 people.

4. I am regular contributor to IV. Also, I have done all the AI's.

Unfortunately, we all know that the political climate is not the best ever at the moment. HR 3012 will go thru waves of negotiation behind the scenes . But I agree, It should pass on its own without any strings attached.


Thanks IV! Jai Ho!

Actually Pappu's reply is correct and shows that he understands the situation in US correctly.

We cannot ask to change the law or regulation based on individual benefit unless there is any kind of discrimination.

If you want to create a business you can get H1b visa easily if it is technology related. You can start a business and apply visa for the company. There are some difficulties but I know many who started business and started H1b. If you really have an idea to start business you can think of starting by H1b. Discuss with immigration Attorney

It is possible that DHS may come up with that rule making if they do not have legal issues in that.
