as far as House is concerned, they are going for piecemeal approach rather than passing senate version of comprehensive bill.

and I think, in piecemeal approach, there is high chance that our EB part will be passed without much hassle.

Seniors may correct me if there is something more fuzzy can happen in piecemeal approach.

Why always look for things that you don't know? Maybe House leadership is not making it public or they are not being upfront because there will be backlash from anti immigrant groups. Does it make sense? Just because you do not know what's going on, doesn't mean its evil or wrong. You don't want to trust them when House says they are working. Yes, Senate will not stamp anything that the House will pass. Likewise, House has its identity, it will not rubber stamp whatever Senate will pass. Why is it so difficult to comprehend? Why is it bad or wrong? House goes to vote every 2 years. They will be careful in taking a position before Senate passes a bill. House members have more to lose if House members take a position and then Senate doesn't even pass the bill. Thinking from their point of view and it will start to make sense.

Default 5 year clause for STEM graduates

Could you please help or suggest what to do to tell senators to remove or adjust 5 year clause for STEM graduates? Most companies start GC process for H1b employee when they are in their 6th year which means they have spent 1 year OPT and 5 years on H1B already before their GC process starts thereby disqualifying many candidates. This is not favorable to many of us who are living legally for more than 10 years.

Get involved and actively participate in the overall effort. We are working on amendment(s) to get this and other provisions in the bill. But the success will depend on the participation of the larger community. Couple of things, (1.) we are at a critical level and we need funds, (2.) soon we will start with phone and online message campaign. Please actively participate in each of these action items. Ask others to actively participate as well. One person doing things on her/his own will not work. But collectively, we can do this.

House and the Senate almost never produce the identical bill in the beginning. They each pass their own bill on a subject. Then there is something called conference committee in which House and the Senate members sit together to reconcile their bill. Then they make 1 bill out of 2 separate bills. That bill goes back to the House and Senate for vote. Once the same bill is reconciled in the House and the Senate, it goes to President's desk for signature.

Then why are you hanging around here on this website looking for updates? Have you contributed? Just coming around here to post your arm chair criticism without doing anything. You do not even know how a bill is passed in this country. Geyhair showed you how little you know in his last post. Empty vessels make most noise. Ever heard of that?

When are you going back to your home country? Hopefully we will not see you again on the site and there will be one less application for greencard ahead of us. Thank you for leaving America.

This is manifatation of of my frustration been in this country for 14 years and no signs of getting a GC in near future.

I was told by my employer that they wont support my application after December 2014.

that is when my current H1 B expires have an EAD but there are no jobs in my industry.
Then do something about it and get involved. Dec 2014 is still 1.5 years away and you have already invested almost 10 times of your life into the process.
Call this your last attempt in trying to help getting the bill passed. At least you will have the satisfaction of having tried.

They wont support your h1b extension probably, but they should be good with your EAD.

He is hanging around to this website because he have some hopes, like me and you. but he is correct about on thing that it is just a political game. it is just near to impossible that they will pass immigration bill. some where it will stop.

Thanks to IV for doing all the hard work for all of us. now you will ask me , did you contributed? what did you do? my dear friend everyone wants to do something for this great cause, but not every person have resources like you.

no fighting please. i know you and Ron hira and some others are smarter then rest of us.
