No need to explain. you will get the news tomorrow. But most talks with all other sources are going towards recapture. At least recapture is one of the multiple items they considered and took a decision. So just prepared to file I485.

Remember that initially IV maintained that recapture is not possible by law but many lawyers maintained that it is feasible. But IV did one day phone/email campaign on March. So that points towards recapture

Question AOS Vs Recapture

Assuming its either going to be AOS for all or Recapture one small query.. if its recapture the priority dates are going to move a lot thats given. But what happens in case of AOS ? Do they move at all ?

Please understand that there is a need to hold off until tomorrow for the Administration to make the official announcement. It will be wrong for us or for that matter anyone to get ahead of the Administration and violate the trust.

As you are aware that we have been strongest advocate of recapture and dependents exemptions. But you may also be aware and we have all along shared this in the past that it is very difficult to do recapture and dependents exemptions as Admin fix.

Whatever is announced tomorrow, rest assured that Administration did everything possible within the legal authority of the President. We all have a lot to be thankful for to the President, the WH staff and the Obama Administration.

Please manage your expectations to look at the announcement with an open mind and please try to see beyond the obvious.

It's going to be a good day tomorrow.

Default Awesome, thanks

Thanks IV. The last 2 weeks have been the happiest days in my "US Immigrant" life. The last two days it has been a frenzy - of good thoughts and joy. I have now been filled with hope where none existed before, as previously we were just staring at an infinite, uncertain and endless wait. That can and did take its toll on our hopes.

Irrespective of what happens tomorrow - which I am sure is going to be something good for those of us waiting for GC - I thank you on behalf of every immigrant for the awesome work you guys have been and will be doing.

No one, I mean none, other than you guys and the administration have any clue as to what will happen tomorrow. Most are just speculating. That in itself is a testament and shows the amount of advocacy and sheer hard work that has been done by IV volunteers to get this to become a reality. Hats Off!

nothing is going to begin and end in 1 month. If that happens that is not a solution at all.


@Admin

Can pls you point out who is making the announcement - USCIS or Obama administration or House reps?
