With the little I know, I would say "no news is no news", just a question of wait and watch. I know it's frustrating but hey ho, that's life!

I have been waiting for last 10 years....it may take another 5 years at least to be current.

Which is 3 EAD extensions away... No big deal. Mean time I keep contributing to IV , will participate in advocacy efforts.

It is quite comforting some times to hear from fellow IVians , that I am not fighting this alone.
I saw many people who came to this country before me got their GCs and became citizens, I came to this country in year 2000, applied GC in 2003...may get greened in 2017 at the earliest. Life goes on.

Upcoming Senate Immigration- and Refugee-Related Legislative Floor Actions


By Micheal E. Hill
Last Updated on Friday, April 27, 2012 -- 4:55 pm EDT

The following immigration- or refugee-related floor actions could occur in the coming weeks:
Full Senate Could Take Up Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Bill Containing Immigration Provisions: The full Senate could at any time take up S. 1301, the "Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2011". The measure contains a number of provisions relating to alien trafficking victims.
The Senate Committee on the Judiciary approved its version of S. 1301 on October 13, 2011. It was formally reported to the full Senate on November 17, 2011.

At the time of this writing, no date for full Senate consideration of the measure had yet been set.

Full Senate Could Take Up Bill Revising Annual Per-Country Limits for Employment- and Family-Based Immigrant Visas: The full Senate could at any time take up H.R. 3012, the "Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act of 2011. As passed by the House of Representatives, the measure would eliminate the annual per-country limitations for employment-based immigrants, and it would increase the annual per-country limitations for family-based immigant visas from 7.5 percent of the total number of available visas to 15 percent of the total number of available visas. The House of Representatives passed H.R. 3012 on November 18, 2011, by a vote of 389-15.

At the time of this writing, no date for either full Senate or Senate Judiciary Committee consideration of the measure had yet been set.

I can also predict that the bill could pass "anytime". This blog post you copy-pasted was written 2 weeks back, that "anytime" has not arrived yet. I will also start a blog site to predict that you could become a millionaire "anytime", what about that?

There is also a factual inaccuracy in the post. The House of Representatives passed HR3012 on 29th November, 2011. The blog post below says that HR3012 passes the House on 18th November, which is incorrect. Someone needs to get their facts straight.

If you cannot write correct dates when the bill passed the House, how can you know when the bill will pass in the future? Yes, it can happen "anytime" which could mean next month, in next 6 months, in next year or in next 10 years - it could all mean "anytime". What's next - are you talking about earth time or biblical time where 1 day = 1000 years?

Just watched the "need to know" episode on Kera.org ( sunday 10am cst )
talking about legal immigration ( pro ) .
"The debate over legal immigration is examined. Included: whether foreign-born technology workers are taking jobs that could go to Americans; why immigrants are more likely to start businesses than non-immigrants. Also: a Jon Meacham essay."

HR 3012 was shown with other stack of bills, and was commented " not comming any time soon".

If any one watched it, can also comment.

Looking to see where i can find a link to the archive.

This system is rigged by Indians - software companies and individuals. We got this mess on to ourselves and now we are trying to blame US politicians and people for holding up bills like HR 3012. As long as this fraud and abuse is going on nothing will fix the system. There are several physicians with years of medical school, residency and fellowship waiting in EB2 line and people with engineered qualifications get in EB1 and EB2. What a shame! After all how can we forget our old ways from back home. If IV is really interested in fixing employment based immigration system, they need to work on fixing the abuse and fraud first. Even if they give all EB visas to us it won't be enough.
By the way I am an Indian and not ROW

You are looking at the situation with jaundiced eye. So basically system should not do the enforcement , checking, verification , setting rules and policies to avoid loopholes everything has to be done by us. Can I get the listing of how the GCS were awarded per category per country from 1999 till 2012? How can they approve PERM petitions when the people before PERM are still pending (they were onveniently put in a backlog queue, where was your self consciousness then?), I don't say we all part of problem but its not just Indian, its everycone, everyone who could exploit the system exploited it. Buck always starts and stops with implementor or the guardina of the system not with followers

So according to you, because you have been waiting, so all others ahead of you must be fraud and all others must have somehow scammed the system? Per your post, only you are the deserving one because you are a doctor and all other "indians" must wait because if someone is "indian" then she/he must have been abused by their employer? Is that what you are trying to say?

A while back, someone on these forums said that everyone here sees the system (and the world) based on their own personal situation and everyone wants to change the system to best suit their own situation. And in the process, every one leaves no chance to claim that they are victim of the backlog because everyone else is fraud/abused.

This observation is so real, its pretty much evident and applicable in every post on all immigration forums. Your post is no different.

Default Me Me attitude of @bibliophile2020

I have doubt about the @bibliophile2020 . Look at his Join date. That is near HR3012 rally. May be a spy from opposition. Who is trying to get GC badly. But when it is getting delayed then starts blaming others for fraud and mainly Indians (in another post). Its @bibliophile2020 's frustation. Please ignore. US govt has enough checkpoints and Laws to check fraud. They don't need to depend on @bibliophile2020 's frustation.

Well looks like some one is taking notice. Sen.Grasley is holding on to HR3012 like a dog unto a bone.
