Thanks,

So in the October Bulletin, there will be heavy movement? From going current to moderately heavy movement to the reality of retrogression, and further to 2005 as per Charles Oppenheimer. What is the current reality of things?

HR213 - on adding more and more supporters, again where does this stand? There is hardly one year left for the congress to wrap up. Other than getting supporters/co-sponsors in the Senate fine, what about the House?

Default DHS - Report

http://www.dhs.gov/sites/default/fil...Report_508.pdf

Page 12
Employment-Based Immigrant Petition (Form I-140) Processing
Stakeholders continue to report concerns pertaining to USCIS’ handling of employment-based immigrant petitions. With extensive backlogs in certain employment-based preference categories due to statutory visa caps and potential changes to USCIS policies on petitioner-beneficiary rights, it is imperative that USCIS maintain clear and consistent communication with its stakeholders. In recent months, USCIS has taken steps to review its longstanding policy on who is an “affected party” when it comes to appealing a decision of a Form I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker. The Ombudsman encourages USCIS to consider the significant case law and recognize legal standing for certain beneficiaries of a Form I-140 petition.

Page 15
I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker; or (2) have been granted H-1B status under sections 106(a) and (b) of the American Competitiveness in the Twenty-first Century Act of 2000 (AC21), as amended by the 21st Century Department of Justice Appropriations Authorization Act.50 Additionally, on March 24, 2015, USCIS published for public comment draft guidance on L-1B Specialized Knowledge, with a target effective date of August 31, 2015.51 Other initiatives related to employment-based programs, including guidance for foreign workers waiting in the visa queues seeking to take advantage of portability under AC21 were still in development at the time this Report was finalized.

jerks and some lawyers do these kind of things. That lawyer Shan pally will then claim that he changed the world the world by bringing the freedom to immigrants. Whereas the fact is he and immigration lawyers are part of system of corruption to exploit H1B/L1B/pending green card immigrants.

IV has said that EAD for 140 is already done deal. We already know that Administration is working on regulations. This is already done done. When something is already done deal, that is why Shan pally and or these jerks will start petition, do 1 meeting after it is already done, and claim that they got it done .... kids

i understand signing this petition does not help
https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/pet...140-approval-4
But won't it help to let the word out so that more people can help? How many people knows about IV? i only heard it 2 months before . signing will only show our strength and don't do much harm.
I see more than 6k signs, if you say they can come and volunteer, may be most people can't.but they can show their support this way. even my American friends are ready to sign it.But i am sure they wont be an activist for this cause.
All this can do is to show more people support our cause and put some light on the issue?
politicians also like to get into issue which they seem will gain more vote.

Its not IV's fault that you don't know them. Understand the objective of the group, before throwing out Hail Mary passes. Your interest in immigration would have got you here.

Signing up junk petitions does not show any strength. In fact It does harm serious effort.

Before you expect any replies, can you tell when did you come into this country and update your profile with current status? Then lets talk about your concern !
