That answered all my questions/concerns.
Thank you admin

I think a lot of people are negative on this report (and initially I was too) but I think the negativity stems from the "I want it now!!!" section of the brain. Looking at it from a larger perspective, in the next 2 years we pretty much have a LOT of things solved that will make waiting in line a lot easier. Except for the actual green card of course .

I suppose the focus now is making sure these recommendations are implemented.

Default Paapad tod pehelvaan

All the people who are crying and cribbing about IV/Report are what we call "paapad tod pehelvaan" in hindi. Literally translated "Wrestler who can only break papadum" These folks only have guts to pick up a fight online where they know there are no real consequences. That too with someone like IV who is trying to help. If you are so gutsy, why don't you walk up to the whitehouse and setup a tent like the anti-war lady who has been there for decades or at-least walk up to your senators office and "demand" your so called rights!!! Besides IV, do you have any other option . These are the kind of people who sit with a begging bowl and a large dose of self pity waiting for someone to throw a crumb on their plate.

If you are lucky to have your birth certificate in order, good for you. Ask people who had to go through RFE's because of the birth certificate. It can easily take 6 months or more and possibly a trip to India to get these in order. So yes, I am glad IV gave a heads up for the documents.

Question to Admin about the proposed job portability rule:

On the day the rule is passed, say the current employer is in the middle of processing your green card or has not started the process yet....but luckily you have an approved I-140 from your previous employer (approved for more than 1 year & has not been revoked & is still perfectly valid). Would you be able to use the previous I-140 for job mobility?

Most people don't realize why this report is a big deal, but when you think about it, it is obvious.

The President of the the United States has acknowledged our problems and has publicly ordered DHS, DoS and DoL - three huge federal bureaucracies to deal with our concerns.

This is also a big deal to us as an organization. We have been pushing for these fixes for years. To people stuck in backlog, the problems are obvious and the fixes easy - but let me assure you that there is no shortage of obvious problems in this country with easy fixes - that will never ever get fixed. Getting anything done in Government is hard. Very very hard. And we had exactly zero "allies" in this battle.

That is why to see a document from no less than the President of the United States ordering several large agencies to get their act together and fix our problems to the maximal extent allowed within the law - is a big deal to us. If you are suffering under the backlog - it should be a big deal to you too.

We did raise this issue, but last I heard they told us that it "was so far out in the weeds" that we would have to wait for the final rule.

Default Ease of Travel

In this new report, can someone clarify on the travel part, does this simplify travel in any way--Like currently you have to wait for secondary inspection on advance parole and cannot get tsa cleared if you do not have a gc. Does it all get easier?
Cheers

Default Do these fixes needs to go through Rule making Process?

Do these fixes needs to go through Rule making Process or publishing a Memo will work?

what is the timeline for these fixes? (assuming these are different from the I140EAD-AP Fix)

Question to admin:

The report talks about 2 things towards visa modernization efforts i.e "Updating the monthly visa bulletin" & "Refining monthly allocation of visas" in addition to the technology improvements that is supposed to improve efficiency.

But this does not change the current cap numbers, they need to still work within those numbers. What kind of improvements within the agencies would suddenly make it possible to significantly start moving visa dates from October and avoid retrogression?

Would this just be a supply/demand strategy change of moving the dates early during the first three quarters of year and keeping them steady later or is there going to be an influx of new visas numbers from somewhere?

Unless there is a wastage of significant visas today, what kind of improvements would suddenly allow more number of people file for green cards?

IV your insights into this would be highly appreciated.

There is so much 'bad' influence of the data by all these prediction websites. As we have said in the past stop wasting time on them because they will never be accurate predictions because of the nature of this animal. It is just a way for some websites to get more traffic and business. Focus on policy changes instead.

I think this is one of the most important scenarios related to the I-140 EAD/AP rule.

Scenario:
- Employer A I-140 is approved let’s say in May 2015
- I resign now and join Employer B but the Employer A agrees to not revoke/cancel the I-140
- I-140 EAD/AP Rule is implemented let’s say in June 2016

Can I tell employer B that all they need to do now is an H1 transfer “just this one-time” and they do not have to start the GC process again since in June 2016 I own an approved I-140 albeit from my previous employer A?

If we can get some inside info on this scenario, this could potentially free up a lot of people now. I know it’s almost impossible to get this “assurance” however.

My I-140 is in process with current employer and my PD is November 2014. The clause "more than an year with I-140" wouldn't work for me if I want to change employer
Is there a way to remove this condition in the Final rule?
