Default Thanks IV

I am current.
Thanks IV for your hardwork. This is a great relief for people in the line.

I couldn't stop appreciating the smartness behind this fix. Can some one care who thought about this and what happened behind the scenes?

Default Support Fairness

This is a great process! If your dates are not current right away, don't be dissapointed. Its a matter of a few months. The fight for fairness should continue no matter what. HR213- remove the country caps, let us be equal

Don't mean to rain on your parade but this doesn't mean anything other than disappointment for EB3 I folks. The action date retrogressed to 08 March 04 and Application filing date is July 2005. Which means there is no relief for EB3 I.

This is a very important point. While IV has been working hard and tirelessly for these fixes, it is only because of the political climate and given that Congress has failed to live up to its expectations.

No one should forget that HR- 213 is the ONLY solution. If you already haven't please contact your local representatives and ask them to support HR 213

I am in the same boat my friend, but just hang in there a little more. This shows that the Administration is willing to make fixes and make changes happen. The dates will only steadily moving forward from here on. This is their first step to make inroads.

IV cannot hand deliver the GC to you. Y dont u see this in a positive way. This fix is the first of many other fixes that r expected to come from the Presidents executive action. There is no need to be negative about a positive change. In fact no need to be negative for anything at all, instead focus efforts on passing legislations like HR213, which can permanantly fix this problem. I hope u c the reality of our situation as a high skilled community!!!

This is the mother of all fixes so far. H4 EAD was miniscule and narrower compared to this. This will help everyone to get EAD sooner. If you are current today, it should move pretty fast soon, but the change by itself is golden. Thanks a lot IV, and the WH administration, USCIS.

This fix is so logically obvious, that 5 yrs down the lane people would not believe if we tell them it was not this way, but a single date for both card approval and application. I wasted several years, finally seeing light. Happy for both myself and everybody else who will not have to undergo what we went through ever...

It should move pretty fast, this date will not retrogress like the approval date. It will soon get to C, based on workload. Though i absolutely can understand the frustration, please hang on, just couple more months.

The Action date is governed by the cold hard per-country cap numbers. Instead of "raining on our parade" you can work with us to get rid of this horrible system.

Secondly, regarding EB3I, there are a couple of dynamics:
1. There is just a lot of inventory until 2007 that needs to be worked through.
2. Volume of ROW filings is much higher in EB3 then EB2.

That is why the effects of this change in EB3 will be much lower than the same in EB2.

All that said, we hope that this change will not be the last word on this matter and is just about setting a precedent so as to not alarm the usual suspects.

Hil, Despite not being current, you are still happy. I say you rock.

I will try to attend meanwhile I will renew my monthly contribution today so it will help our efforts.

Most people think they cannot change policy in US.
Sharing the story actually helps people understand the effort you put behind this and how you successfully influenced the decision. Instead of something magically appearing before them then they dont understand the complexity of what happened. It might inspire more people to join the cause.

amulchandra, it may not be good for you (or me - EB3-05) at this very moment. But it is awesome for people who for whatever reason failed to file for 485 during July-07 and this is the firs time those will be able to file theirs.

This is the first time USCIS is doing this and chances are they took a baby step or know of demand for new 485s from July-05 EB3.
