Still it is so unfiar, people on H1 will still be on H1 for a while and H4's can not get EAD until the dates are current. I guess this is how it has to be.

This article was published yesterday in the Washington Post:
Other countries court skilled immigrants frustrated by U.S. visa laws - The Washington Post
Excerpt: The contraption sits in a basement lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, a mishmash of hoses, wires, whirring pumps and a 12-foot-high plastic tower filled with steam and dripping water, all set on plastic milk crates.

It looks like a high school science project, but it was developed by two postdoctoral mechanical engineers at MIT. And it just might be a breakthrough that creates wealth and jobs in the United States and transforms the white-hot industry of oil and natural gas hydraulic fracturing, or fracking.

That is, as long as the foreign-born inventors arenít forced to leave the country.

This is exactly what I meant. While we wait it out for the PD to be current, "they" will get their EAD's right now! It this happens, we should not take it lying down, and I would hope we can organize big protest rally and demand same treatment..

Why same treatment? Then what is the incentive for coming into the country legally, pay taxes, follow the rules etc.. why should we demand same treatment. Don't we all need a better treatment? Why not ask for citizenship for people who are here longer legally and still did not get a permanent resident status. Is there anything wrong in asking this?

Because there is strength in numbers and they have the numbers which we, unfortunately, do not. Also, the magnitude of the problem is much bigger in the case of the undocumented.

Because documented do not want citizenship. They want to know when EB2 priority date of June 2009 will get current. If it is not getting current lets ban all porters from EB3 and ban EB1C multinational managers. EB3 suffer from inferiority complex of not getting EB2 and say they are smarter. H1s like one member Jetflier only wants EAD for his wife more important than greencard.

Undocumented want citizenship. They are smarter than us because they aim high.

Call me a cynic but I have a feeling even STEM M.S. grads wont be included in a bill. It will be STEM PhDs and that's it. I hope I am wrong.

We cannot run away from truth by taking a high pedestal. There are hundreds of threads about my claim on forums and you can see how popular they are. How can we educate those people?

You are not a cynic! You have a power to see the future.

Sorry buddy, they will get GC as soon as eligible, because CAP has been eliminated for them. Go read all past CIR bills - 2010, 2011, 2012. CAP are eliminated for them and EAD to whole family immediately when CIR passes. 2013 bill won't be different as it is same people writing it, only difference this time it will pass ... Here we are fighting about per country limits, nobody talking about EAD as soon as PERM approved etc. standards are just set low by us legals. BTW, I am not on any EB, way out of this mess. Just trying to tell legals here to set standards high... This is the moment for you guys. Don't fight among EB2, EB3, STEM, non-STEM, etc...

Dude Gemini why are you wasting time here if you are not one of us? You are just a troll from anti immigrants. Go away before being kicked out and discuss immigration with people of your own kind. You need to go to school and upgrade your skills so that you can compete.

Guys let us not feed this troll.
