On the green card side, here are the positive changes in the Hatch-Schumer amendment -

1.) Allow filing Adjustment of status when the visa number is not available per the visa bulletin meaning EB applicants can file I-485 concurrently with I-140, as soon as the labor certification is approved. 6 months after filing I-485, EB applicants can change jobs/employers.

2.) If you change the job on AC21, your petitioning employer cannot withdraw immigrant petition. People have to go through all sorts of head-ache and risk changing jobs on AC21 due to the fear of backlash of the employer.

These two changes are designed to allow people to change jobs/employers quickly.

Because employers cannot have more than 15% employees on H-1, employers will have an incentive to apply for green cards quickly, meaning getting labor certifications quickly, meaning having the ability to change jobs/employers quickly, without risking green card petition.

Hope this makes sense.

Hang-in there with the effective date, we are working on it and we are confident that it will be fixed before it passes the Senate. It may have to be on the Senate floor so hang-in there.

Why you need effective date if the amendment is not time sensitive .?

It simply hits the ball out of the park and changes the INA once in for all . No more wait for VB . Having EAD and AP right after PERM.

We want to make sure thought its not only for the past I-140 that are already filled.

It should be for all future I-140 as well.

Thanks.

First, Thank you IV for all you do!

As I read this amendment, I see that the reciprocity clause for H4 has been removed with a caveat added that it can be suspended upon request of the Secretary of State.

Someone correct me if I am wrong. So to all those wondering about that, that's another feather in IVs cap.
