From overall EB GC count. so not waiting for "visa number to be available",
Similar to other exemptions for dependent visa holders and EB1.

Default Tech Firms Take Lead in Lobbying on Immigration

".............,
They, (Tech Firms ), have managed to secure much of what they want in the landmark immigration bill now pending in Congress, provisions that would allow them to fill thousands of vacant jobs with foreign engineers. At the same time, they have openly encouraged lawmakers to make it harder for consulting companies in India and elsewhere to provide foreign workers temporarily to this country.

The bill has a good chance of winning passage in the Senate. The hardest sell will come in the House, where many conservative Republicans see the deal as too generous to immigrants who came to this nation illegally.

The profound transition under way inside Silicon Valley companies is illustrated by their lobbying disclosure reports filed in Congress. Facebook’s lobbying budget swelled from $351,000 in 2010 to $2.45 million in the first three months of this year, while Google spent a record $18 million last year. ,......."

Default 5 year graduation date cut off for STEM Master's graduates!

Immigration Voice,
Please advocate amending the removal of 5 year limit to increasing time from graduation to filing the petition to 6 years to align with the 6yr H1-B limit. A lot of us are affected if the rule applies only 5 years from graduation date because our companies filed for GC in the 6th year.

Immigration Voice applaud the leadership of eight (8) senators for their bi-partisan effort in reforming the nation's broken Immigration system.

ashutrip I do not pay attention to what any lawyer writes to increase people visiting website. Scare tactics and hot updates are no longer going to attract people who get news from the source. I trust IV has more updated information and by recently talking to a IV state leader, I am convinced about that. My perspective changed. Sometimes people said CIR will pass on its own so no need to do any work. Sometimes people say CIR will fail so no need to do any work. Sometimes people scare that it will not happen. I feel it is better to focus on what IV tells us to do.

Default Anti Immigration War Begin!

Heritage foundation published same phony report of 6.3 trillion overhead as scare tactics as they did in 2007. Another Part of Strategy Anti Immigrant Senators Chuck Grassley and Session introduced 77 and 49 amendments respectively to slow down this process alone. They believe more out in open more poisonous it gets with help of groups like FAIR, Number USA and Heritage foundation.
Although pro Immigrant senators introduced amendment our IV community will love to see but this going to another fierce battle like Obamacare where passionate anti immigrant force will do everything in their power to stall this process. Now this will depend upon pro-immigrant how much passion we will have to get somehting out of this instead.

Grassley 54 (ARM13546)
To authorize employment for spouses of L visa holders under the same conditions as employment for spouses of H1B visa
holders.
L1

so does that mean "reciprocal" condition apply to L1 spouse also ??

What is the 5 year stem limit and who does it apply to? Does it apply to pending I-485 applications or future I-485 applications or both?

If so, which dates count? I-140 application date, I-140 approval date, I-485 application date?

I'm confused!
