Also this 10 year employment is fully/combination of F1 OPT and/or H1B or even need to be continuous is something USCIS will decide at later point in time. Also don't know who will be eligible and what steps before one can even apply. Too early to think though, but long story short, provision is there. Keeping my fingers crossed.

I didn't see the bill/amendments but from the forum comments its also not clear if they count EAD time, otherwise most of AOS applicants may not qualify.

There was a thread that discussed about 5+ years on pending 485 to Citizenship. Or waiving years off the 5 years citizenship eligibility time (based on number of years wait on 485).

I guess its somewhere in the mix.

I started that thread and made it active many times. But there was not much response for that idea.

It is something our friends who now have greencard can take it up for logical conclusion. For us it is a nice to have idea. We can only support them morally. People who do not have greencards have a primary goal of getting greencard. Once we have greencard we will worry about citizenship. Anyways many people who get greencard do not apply for citizenship. Greencard is something we are very desperate about. It's my number 1 goal.

Larger Union That Enforces Immigration Opposes Bill

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/20/us...erhaul.html?hp

Can't believe how hypothetical what these union people are saying!!! I'm sure this wont fly. Wishing all of us good luck on the bill.
