Admin ... Whats the most likely positive development in this direction? The most frustrating thing for me is that Mar 20th has passed, and there is no credible information on what USCIS has recommended for EO... I want to switch jobs but wary of the whole PERM process re-start ..

1.) USCIS starting the rule making process
2.) H.R 213 moving forward?
3.) I^2 moving forward..

Every one who stuck in backlogs are getting frustrated day by day for the past decade facing lot of family issues,travel issues, can not change job easily due to no rights etc Please read IV post at

Personally I have lot more.. I have college going daughter. I am sure you can not even imagine problems of people having college going kids without GC. Probably you will run away from US. Now things are coming one by one. Keep trust in IV. IV is working very hard... Please do not lose confidence. We will get GOOD days. I am fully relying on HR 213. If in case HR 213 wouldn't become law in this year probably Our family may have to leave US after my daughter completes education. In such case there will be no hope for any legal immigration in the future, but . I am very confident HR 213 will become law this year. Just timing.
FYI: I *2 Act will never become law as long as it contains H1B quota increase.

If you are worried by your daughter getting out of status, does n't childhood status protection act takes care of that issue.

I believe Child Protection act will take care of only when I-485 is filed. Fortunately July 2007 incident made our family status AOS (filed I-485 ) . AOS is not sufficient to get Federal Aid for department of education. You need to be on PAROLEE during school year--Aug-June. In order to get PAROLEE, you must go out of US and re-enter with AP every year.Also you have to make sure PAROLEE status valid for school year (August-June). This is a punishment for immigrants on AOS without GC. Hope now you understand the problems.
Thats why every one wants HR213 to be PASSED and become law.

Murthy .. First of all, appreciate the reply, and your confidence has made my sunday start better... That said, we all have our problems and depending on who you are where you are in your life, it might look like my mountain is bigger than yours .. It doesnt have to be a condescending that "other people cannot imagine problems or would have run away" and makes us look skirmish.

In the end, this is a wave and when it comes it will lift all boats ...

Cheer up. I hope you get your status ASAP.

It is ok to be optimistic about passing bills like Hr 213 but it may be difficult to plan based on that. If it is not passed this year there is a possibility for next year as the bill expires only 2016 december if no action is done. I*2 act also may have chance if the H1b numbers and GC numbers will be made reasonable and unlimited portion is removed in both H1b and GC. Basically higher the numbers more difficult to get neutral votes as they are critical for passing for any bill and you cannot change hardcore pro immigrants and anti immigrants

Thumbs up IV efforts

This is possible just because of IV efforts. All three co-sponsors from WA are due to exclusive effort of Chitti a dedicated IV volunteer and other IV members from WA state. I am proud to be a part of IV having met Chitti during recent IV advocacy days in Feb 2015.

What is the required number of cosponsors for a bill to get on to floor? How many cosponsors more required for this bill to make it to floor?

There is no predefined number. Idea is to add as many as we can and create enough momentum

Usually any immigration bill comes and expires at the end of the period. Even if house is able to pass then Senate it is difficult. Basically Co-sponsoring will be used to gauge the support. But bringing a bill is on the hands of leadership. The leadership could bring a bill which may have only a few co-sponsors. At the same time there will be even majority of house is co-sponsor still leadership may not bring the bill for the debate. So if anyone is optimistic of passage of any immigration bill I will ask one question. Is this time different? The answer gives the chance of passage of bill. Or At least this time are you anything different for lobbying the bill?

It is easy to be suspicious and ask questions. If there was not a good chance for it, we would not be pushing for it. We are not paid money to push for it like lobbyists. There are other bills like startup act, i d act and so on but we are focusing energy here because this seems to have the best chance. To understand how it is different, you need to come to advocacy events or trust. If you do not do either of that you are not going to get answers.

Hi rupen,

Since I'm relatively new to this, how do I go about trying to convince my congressperson to co-sponsor this? He is currently not one of the co-sponsors. Is there a template somewhere that I could modify and use to email him? Thanks!
