Meaning we can apply EAD/AP also correct?

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

Thanks.
Does concurrent filing of I-140 and I-485 means, after 6 monts both primary H1B applicant and dependent get EAD ?

Someone correct me if I am wrong. So to all those wondering about that, that's another feather in IVs cap.
We did share this change sometime back regarding giving the authority to DHS Secretary to determine for countries that do not offer reciprocity. This was expected change and agreed by all sides 2 weeks back. We did earlier announce this change happening.

Default Citizenship for long waiting candidates

I remember some discussions around reducing the wait time to citizenship for candidates waiting in line for more than 10 Yrs. Do we have this included in any proposed amendments?

Yes. Allowing applicants to be able to file EAD & AP quickly is the whole purpose of Early filing. When you file I-485, you apply for EAD and AP concurrently.

Hatch amendment is not a done deal yet. Sen. Leahy had allowed Sen. Grassley to offer a Second degree to the amendment that has already passed. IV and others hold your horses.

Why we are still worried about H4 . If they can apply for 495 and get EAD they already have what we are asking for.

Please focus more on long term and strategic issues.

H4 work authorization is not a core issue by itself and it results from delay in green cards.

We should play smart and avoid arguing about things that don't matter if we have EAD.

Default Cruz 4

Cruz 4 went down (as expected) 6-12.

Hatch 8 hasn't come up yet, so as someone suggested it'll either be withdrawn or go down. Withdrawn is more likely since Hatch doesn't want to see any of his amendments fail since he will be voting for the bill in the committee.

What are the odds the 5-yr STEM limit will be removed on the floor of the Senate? Will IV or Compete America push for the 5-yr STEM limit in the House?

I believe this is for country cap in family based GCs. Country cap removal for employment based GCs is already in the original bill.

Learn from Irish. They got without arguing what we are crying for . Right for dependent to work. Its a wrong point to start with .

If there are no legs , you can't stand.

Its should be about more green card. So it opens door for more family. If we keep fighting for dependents and not the primary, guess what?

There will be no more dependents cause there will be no more primary applicants.

All fight and money wasted?

I wish we get every thing we need.

Is it ever true?

I have no rights to pick issues. But can i give reasoning?

He just placed request and gave the reason why he/she thinks so. He made no decision here. Either you accept it, if not give your counter argument why it should still be. Please watch these judiciary commitee sessions, can learn a lot on how to put foward opinions, counter it or negotiate it. By the by he has every right to decide for himself that it is a non core issue just as you have the right to think it has.
