Nevertheless, when you post a message from another lawyer's website directed at organizations like us, you leave us with no choice but to respond and speak our mind.

This forum is not only for you. There are others who visit and read this forum. We don't want others to misunderstand how we function. Our response was for others who may visit to this thread to read where we stand and what we think about such unsolicited advice, specially from some immigration lawyer.

And BTW, this notice for briefing has been out for more than 20 days now. How is 20 days late be called as "heads-up"?

Dear Admin,
I understand, now, the reasons that made you respond to my post. And as I said earlier - thank you for your response/ clarification.
Again, I mentioned in my original post that you may have already known about it (as is the case most of the times). I saw it was posted today on the other blog and thought it was something new they were planning and hence brought it to your attention.

Thanks.

For the employers and attorneys an adhoc Bush type fix would be ideal since they could start replacing the departing batch of "slaves" with new ones and the cycle would go on until 2022 maybe.

A well thought out regulatory fix that free current and future H1's will be a total nightmare for these guys.
True!!

This is what I was thinking as well. Best case we will get a temporary slot opening for few weeks. Clear off the old slaves and bring in the new slaves!!

That is our beef with immigration lawyers, and we make sure to point that out in every Congressional office and administration. I cannot speak more about immigration lawyers in general without using profanity. So in the interest of maintaining civility on open forum I will stop here.

As par as amicus curiae is concerned, this is NOT about EAD for H-4. This is about who "owns" I-140. According to the current process, employer "owns" I-140. Which is why employee is denied copies of immigration paperwork or decision notices, employer is able to withdraw approved I-140, and immigration lawyers don't tell us any information or give us any paperwork without seeking the permission of the employer. This brief is on our radar for a few weeks now and we are working on it. we suspect lawyer groups (paid by companies) will write to prevent employee "owning" I-140 process, and they will lose.
Admin hits the nail in the head. They must lose!

I know many people who are at the verge of a layoff with H1 terms ending and the employer "owning" the I-140 will not provide a copy. Hope we win!

Default Please guide

Thank you IV for this wonderful news about AOS filing. But there are a few of us who are going to miss this wonderful opportunity because of not having 140 with current company. In our case, my husband changed company last year after waiting more than 10 years for a better opportunity. We are still waiting for our new perm to be filed. Our old priority date is 2007. So is there any hope for us? Or is this it? We were hoping to get ead with pre-registration. Please guide us. Losing all hope. Some days are hard.

As far as i understand, this is not a one time flood gate opening event like in 2007.
One should be able to apply for EAD whenever his i140 is approved, once this is official.
(Of course this is just my interpretation of what is out there.)

I would wait for something from Administrator2 - I don't think the details of the fixes are public knowledge (or even decided yet).

A lot of information has been posted in a bunch of threads and people should definitely read them to understand the process of fixes and bill.

Heads Up!

We wanted to provide you with a heads up about the upcoming positive announcement on Monday (5/4) so that you don't miss it. If you care for the green card backlog fixes and high-skilled immigration you do not want to miss this upcoming announcement.

Thanks,
Immigration Voice

I fail to understand the purpose of a heads-up email at this juncture, when IV leadership does not want to share any details. Whats the point ? Why not send detailed update mail after 5/4 (which is only 3 days away) ? Communication strategy needs to be improved by Aman & Co.
The email gives a feeling that someone wants to be a hero and that this is a desperate attempt to claim credit. Nothing else.

I am only writing this, because I believe IV's work is too good.. and want it to succeed.
Regards !
