I would say he only way to find more information is to volunteer in your state. Maybe this is the incentive. We are running campaigns with volunteers, doing state level meetings and awareness activities in several states at this time.

Please post a private message to me with your Full name, phone number and state. Some volunteer from that state will call you to vet and include you in the next state level activity.

If you are active on social media, contact us as well. We run select social media campaigns for a specific tasks
Please also like our facebook page. We post updates there also.

This is very interesting. If the people at Morgan Lewis cooked this on their own, then they have some good cooking skills :-)

I would really like to see Admin's response on this.

Current visa bulletin has the two dates. I guess that matches with what is pointed out by National Law Review.
What is next? Can IV give more clarity on it??

I have spoken with my current employer's attorney. Since I have I140 from pervious employer, I am not benefitted from this announcement as of now. I am sure many of us are in the same category. THis announcement is of no use for us. Sad...

You can still try to join that previous employer if possible and file.

That's not possible for me...
Is this the only news we were expecting to come out or there are more pending?

More pending over the next few days.

We remain hopeful for Early AoS and I-140EAD+AP.

I thought this was early AOS in way possible with the current climate. Is there a possibility for another early AOS specifically for EB folks ?

No one has told us it is impossible and they know how important early AoS is to us.

Yep. That would be solid and would cover all folks as opposed to this way of VB movement.

If my understanding is correct, only the I-140 EAD+AP rule could have the potential to remove the 180 day restriction of changing jobs after filing I-485, correct? Without that provision, even with today's fix for "early filing" of I-485, we are still restricted for 180 days?

What is the difference between what Early AOS and what came out today? If I-140 EAD/AP really a possibility? Sorry for the questions, just very unsure about these nuances!

Even if there is a 180 day delay for I140-EAD+AP (please don't forget the AP), it shouldn't effect most of us. My understanding any delay is measured from date of I-140 approval, not EAD recipt. If that is not the case I guarantee you, we will push for it.

The way we envision things working, under the new scheme of things filing I-485 is not going to be a big deal at all. Once you get you I-140 EAD, if you don't like your current employment situation you can just switch jobs and file I-485 from the new job. If you get a better job offer within 180 days, then there is nothing stopping you from switching again and filing I-485 for a second time with the new job. This is distinct from the current scheme where you have to go through the whole process all over again.

The current cumbersome inflexible regulations (note regulations - not laws), were crafted by unethical immigration lawyers and tech lobbyists to minimize our job flexibility and maximize our attorney's fees. All we are doing with these changes is bringing the application of the law in sync with congresses intent when they wrote it - before it was hijacked by some DC insiders.

One thing to keep in mind is these EAD's are very limited. You will have to work in "same or similar" occupations, it is unknown if you can start your own company and you could loose it if any job you take is not "same or similar" to the job for which you have an approved labor. Only HR.213 can fix this. If we can get HR.213 done by the end of the year, by next September most of us will have Green Cards, not some shitty EAD.
