I would suggest not looking at this from the point of election season but look at it from the point of view of Administration's desire to do something. No body is saying this is over and it won't happen. Fatalist approach is not healthy so it won't be wise to read it that way. It is matter of when not if this will happen. So keep it positive because the intention is do EO and we can all live with few weeks here or there.

And anybody accusing the President of playing politics is not living is the real world. There is nothing non-political about politically charged subject of immigration. The business of Washington is politics. So it is ironic for a few to accuse the President for "playing politics".

Ask yourself, if you were President, will you do something to encourage switching of the Senate to the other party? Or will you not wait for a few weeks until after the election? It is easy to be carried away when one is inundated with often biased news/opinions. But it is most important to be smart and see through information thrown at us, more so when it is needed the most.

Agree!

Its from the usual smell that we had been through for the past 2-3 years, "all hoopla but no action" sort of sentiment.

You are right in saying, "We have waited....". We can wait for couple more months. Hopefully something +ve would emerge.

Totally agree with you Aman. DACA was issued before re-election. It helped him politically to get re-elected. Right now, Obama and Democrats believe that EO on immigration will do them more harm than good in mid-terms. Immigration is a hot political topic and both parties want to benefit from it. So, I don't think Obama will do anything after mid-term. He will wait till 2016 to take action and possibly help get another Democrat president in white house. What's his political motivation to act on EO after the mid-terms? He will blame GOP or something else to delay it till 2016. John Boehner has already started the conversation that CIR "might" be possible in 2015.. like he said in 2013 and again in 2014. GOP will also try their best to buy time and pass something in House to improve their image before 2016 election.

While we agree the president want to do something to help fix immigration, I think he will only do it if it helps him politically or helps his legacy. He can/will act close to 2016 elections to do that.

Aman, can you share your thoughts on this? Why do you think he will act in Nov. after mid-terms?

Thanks.

Fellow IV members - I am just sharing my view point. Spare me the speech on "What I have done to contribute?", "Have I taken part in any advocacy events?", etc.

Everything written on the internet is not true. Everything written in news is also not true. You can have diverse news items in the 2 channels in the same country. News is also all not honest. It could be a lobbied news. You also need to be smart about seeing that is is not CNN saying. You are wrong in that. It is not a CNN news. It is an opinion. Anyone can have an opinion. Now you should also see who is having an opinion here? The author is known to be writing in favor of Hispanics for past many years. So he will try to paint a picture that helps the cause of earliest action. We need to be smart and read between the lines.

EO aside -- does it impact the admin fixes? Does it hasten or make worse the EAD action in any way?

Default Before the holidays are over . . .

White House chief of staff Denis McDonough pledged to Latino lawmakers during a private meeting Thursday that President Barack Obama will take executive action on immigration before the holidays are over – an effort to soothe lawmakers furious about the administration’s move to hold off on action.

Default Transfer to F1 OR wait for H4 EAD rule?

Please delete this post from here is its irrelevant!!! I thought because this H4 EAD rule is going to be part of the administrative fixes it would be wise to have it in this forum.

Hi All,
I am trying to get my wife a US Masters Degree so that she can get a job and can work. This said she is in the middle of her Masters which she is doing on H4 and we are on the verge of final steps to decide if we should convert to F1 so that she can utilize OPT later for the Job search.

Do you think its wise to transfer to F1 > OPT > H1b?? OR wait for H4 EAD rule??

Please suggest!!!

Thanks for sharing the article and bumping the thread. Much of the work happens in the real world, out of the forums or online discussions. Yes, we believe that President knows the difference and things are getting into crunch time. You will see many different articles and opinions as time progress, so hand-in tight before it all unfolds.
