Congress is not enough, HR 3012 needs super majority of 60 to pass.
You cant rule out some filibuster attempt. After all last time it failed in Senate.

Guys,

Please don't have any hopes on HR 3012 passing in this calendar year. We will need to wait at least 3-4 years for any future bills coming. I suggest you look for other avenues to pursue the green card dream.

I don't know how long the porting will be allowed by USCIS. But it is the only option for long waiting EB3 people. My friend has been waiting with Dec 2002 PD. I think I will beat his date with a yet to be applied EB2 porting new application. It is sad, but true.

Default Any base or Proof? Are you in IV Core Team ?

Any base or proof to support your statement ? If not keep your assumptions/guess with you. There is no need of personal opinion & it does not help any one. On the contrary it defeats the purpose of this forum & hurts the efforts.

Default Dont Spread Pesimism !

Please do NOT spread Pessimism reg. HR 3012 around, juz because you got a hope of porting to EB2.

IV Core have always recommended to all who are eligible / can port to EB2, should do the EB2 porting. So its nothing new.

I understand the sentiment but it is what it is. Don't mean to rain on the parade but it looks like its very tough now. IV core made a sincere effort and they brought the bill this far, which has never happened before. But the truth is that the bill doesn't seem to be going anywhere. Whatever is the outcome, I very much appreciate and applaud their efforts.

Go home you guys ... try doing some work in office and quit checking every now and then!

Even if the 3012 passes, remember, you will NOT be immediately affected.. you will have plenty of time to rub your hands later

I started Masters when the HR3012 was introduced; I will be completing Masters in Business in August. My Attorney told me to wait because he was sure that this bill would be passed. Without his knowledge, I joined Masters. In fact, I have an approved I-140 priority date December 2005 under EB3. I have 26 years of IT experience + B.Sc in Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics. As you all know, I have been on H1B since 1998 and I-485 is yet to be filed.

I agree the wait is frustrating but I do believe in the end, it will be worth it!

When did your attorney told you that? In fall of 2011 the prospects were very bright....I don't have any insight now so wondering when did your attorney told you to wait for 3012.

I am not spreading pessimism. I have donated to IVs advocacy efforts like others here and I appreciate their initiatives to make this work. But I just wanted my fellow EB3-ers to actively look for porting to EB2, if they can.

There are lot of jobs out there. My company has 4 open positions for last 4 months and they could not find right candidates to fill those positions. I have got two job offers, which I used for EB2 negotiation in my current company. So I suggest to fellow EB3ers to get active, if GC is their top priority.

June 2012 Visa Bulletin is out and predicts no EB2 movement until Spring 2013.Is immigrationvoice behind this?

I saw the news in Irish Central that Scott Brown announced his inability to get Irish E3 bill passed. That suggested a good groundwork to pass HR 3012 standalone.Now based on the previous data released by USCIS there seemed to be enough visas available but suddenly there is none available even after the new fiscal year.Are they setting the ground for HR 3012 while discussions are made in senate?

Angry Why can't they just pass the STEM exemption!?
