More concerned about House

But #gratitude, nevertheless!

Thanks for update and all the work behind the scene.There will be lot of good things for EB category and this will be because of IV.In earlier CIR's (2006 and 2007) there was nothing for EB.Thanks again to IV team to present and explain EB problems to the lawmakers!This is the first time I can see a bill passed and signed by the President.

Guys,

Can we show some maturity here, please? There is no need to go off the reservation because of every other news article. In next few weeks/months, there will be lot of noise. You got to have the ability to filter out this noise from real information.

Have we not shared already, multiple times, that the bill will contain -

1.) Recapture (from unused GC since 2001)
2.) Elimination of per-country limits
3.) Exemption for dependents
4.) Exemption for US STEM graduates
5.) Ability for H-4 to work (if your country of origin reciprocates the same)
6.) 60 days Grace period on H1

And then there are other helpful provisions. We ask you to stay together and not lobbing grenades for no reason.

Even when most of our provisions are in the bill, the bill also has to pass. For bill to pass, everyone involvement is REQUIRED. If anyone thinks that someone else or some other group will carry this bill, please stop dreaming. Every group will have to do their share, and high-skilled immigrants stuck in the backlogs have to do ours.

Stay together, filter out the noise, be smart about digesting information and responding, and get ready to actively do your share. It sure will be hell of a ride.

Does anyone know what will happen if senators fail to have consensus on illegal immigration but they do agree to work on legal immigration reform.

Will the entire bill fail if some critical piece like illegal immigration and border control do not get mandate ?

What do you think? The bill passes or fails as a package.

And if it fails, there is very small and no change of passing piece meal only for us. Has anything passed in 10 years? If people in power have managed to not do anything outside of comprehensive bill, why do you think small bill can pass now.

Every piece is critical to someone. Something critical to you, is not critical for others. There is no point in crying over why others don't think our piece is not critical, just as we don't think their piece is critical. That's why its called "comprehensive".

This is great. It means all dates will be current as soon as it passes. Thank you for your hard work.

Default Any News on EB3 in new reform

Hi
Is there anybody who has some reliable source to put light on issue of backlog of EB3
India as we are the slowest among all other catagories and countries.
I am here legally from 2000 PD March 2004 EB3 .I am sure there are many more like me and even worse situation than me. All I hear in News Illigal Immigants but nothing on people like us who are well educated and burning their blood to feed the economy without any reward of immigration. Taxes paid Social security deducted ,h1b and EAD renewal fees paid from pay check from 2000 till this date. but no discussion of people like us (EB people) of the hardship we are going through.
Its looks like we are modern days legal slavery victims.
I now regret leaving my country and family.
This is too much attrocity from American immigration system.
There is no acknowledgment by politicians and media too on hardship faced by us
Any body please put some light on this
or we need to go for hunger strike M.Gandhi style

How often do you visit this website? Did you even read this thread before posting?

IV is doing great work for people like us and this bill is going to solve problems. Why are you nervous? Contribute to IV, take part in their action items and be happy.

You either blind or illiterate. Did you not read the list of provisions in the bill? Do you want a separate bill that says "Bill to EB-3 backlogs for open.247"? Which part of "comprehensive" bill concept do you not understand?

Ignorance and arrogance, both are oozing out of your post. Lets take you on your word. Rather than pissing all over yourself with your arrogance, why don't you go on hunger strike?

You are not doing anything special that others are not doing. You work for yourself, not because you have special passion to fuel economy. So is everyone else, including citizens. If you regret leaving your country, you are free to go back. Who is stopping you? Bye Bye

Thumbs up Please

Dear open.247,

My sincerest sympathy for you my friend .

I think you had asked IV before you came to US and somebody here has chained you so you have no way to go back .

My dear friend if you are so highly educated and all 9 yards why are you rubbing your booty in this classic american slavedom .

Please take your benvolent pussy face and cry in front of somebody who really has it .

Guys like you with half pumped up ass and knowledge screwing up the indian face ,I hope you are from the great side of AP wherein you guys languish US to be the place of eternity .
Rather than crying and keeping a p***Y face please do something better for yourself by going somewhere else since you are so highly educated .

Problem is you guys have it too easy over here and cannot get your fat ass out of this luxury ,Go back or go anywhere who in the world called you here or will stop you .

Mercy nowonder they are not clearing immigration for legals since we have substance like this,May all have peace ...
