Sengs, I will appreciate if you can share a little bit from Rep. Chaffetz's explanation on why getting more co-sponsors is important this time around. My concern is that Rep. Chaffetz's has introduced total 18 Bills so far including H.R 213, in 114th congress. He has his hands full and quite possibly could get deviated towards more attractive/famous bills. Is someone from IV in touch with Rep. Chaffetz on regular basis?
Short answer is yes. We have an excellent relationship with Chaffetz's office.

Default Hi

Hi IV,

Thank You for all your Hard work and dedication to our cause. I am currently residing in Savannah, GA. I would like to contact congressmen and senators from GA and particularly from Savannah area. Also are there any active members in this area who I could join in this effort since I am new to this.

Thank you all once again.

Default What should we do about "making noise on EAD for I140"?

Some unknown website posted a message that immigrants should "make noise for EAD for I140". That website named a few websites to "work together".

What do IV suggest that we do about this?

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. As I am sure you know, Administrator2 responded here (What should we do about "making noise on EAD for I140"?).

Meanwhile, I would like to point out that our position on this kind of nonsense is hardly a secret. Over the years in multiple posts we made our position and reasoning very clear.

If you see stuff like this on other forums, you should feel free to push-back on their nonsense and lies on their forums, even at the risk of getting "banned". Some people get too attached to their anonymous online handles - and think it is a "brand" of some sort, when the reality is - what you say on forums and tweeting/emailing/signing petitions without a ground game doesn't really matter in the real world.

Speaking of the real-world, I would like to thank all 17 of you who have signed up to help us push for HR.213. I will close the signup sheet for the week on Thursday and be in touch with you regarding next steps.

Default Thanks for all the help

I want to personally thank IV for the new report.
Its such a great releif if we dont have to file for new I 140 every time we change jobs.
but i read this in one site.
each country is allocated 2802 visa's every year for each quota.

so EB1 for 2015- 40k
according to data demand for this number is 5k. lets assume it becomes 20 k.which is 3k more than last year.
the spill over for that is 20 k

So EB2 for 2015- is 40k +20 K
EB2 for all countries
1997-2006 =1652
2007=1392
2008=4012
2009=10629
2010=6397

from all other countries except India and china in 2015= 1096(we only need to look at this as they all are current)
so the numbers add up to
All countries EB2 inventory upto 2010= 24122
taking out 1096 from rest(as they are current , i assume there wont be any spill over from that category) =23026
so the demand is 23026 for Total EB2. the visa's available is 60k.

if this is true , why can't they give us visa? what is the delay that is causing everyone being current?? are they just playing with everyone?

The data is wrong. It is incomplete. And there are many variables.
So calculations cannot be done accurately on the web. Even DOS does speculative visa bulletins.

But some websites want to make money from the calculations you have done above. They keep calculating and confusing people.

Its better not to waste time on calculations and focus on advocacy IMHO

Please stop saying that Administration is "playing with you". That is just not true. You cannot start from a position of suspicion when you want someone to do something for you. So starting off with attacking USCIS as if they are deliberately not moving dates or allocating visas is a unhealthy starting point.

Also, is it possible that your numbers are not complete and there may be more than what you know?

He must have heard such words from a lawyer website or somewhere else on a website. Such words criticizing USCIS make the reader feels that the owner of the website sympathize with poor immigrants and all fault lies with authorities. It helps them win business and more people to the website.

I think people are being played by the websites and not by USCIS and they do not even know about it. What an irony.

Hello
