I am very unhappy and deeply affected by this change. Please let us know what to do. I have already filled the form and sent it to all my friends and family members.

Deeply sad.

Angry This is Inhuman

So, here's my story from Sep 9th 2015 to Sep 26th 2015-
1-As soon as USCIS made the announcement, I had my parents send my birth certificate. They made it number 1 item and forgot their work to get one issued & send in a week
2- I spent 3 days looking at what documents are needed, forms etc and process to fill those while letting my office work suffer! harming my reputation at work and working 15 hrs to manage both. Fill and download forms which is not just 1 form of 2 pages.
3. Scheduled doctors appointment to get all important vaccines.
4. Go to safe box and collect all documents, search for & collect all in next 2-3 days
5 Got 5 Injections for all vaccinations because my mom had no record of it. Side effect? My arms, nexk and shoulder was in hige pain and immobile for 2 days followed by mild pain and immobility for another 2. And the money spent!
6. Got blood test done, paid money again
7. Got TB skin test done, had to see doctor tomorrow again. Paid money again
8. While I suffered financial, health and mental loss, I gained nothing! USCIS reverted back. My TB test is invalid in 30 days. My medical is invalid in 1 year and my money 500-700$ per person is down the drain.

Can USCIS return all of this to me? If yes, they can revert to anything they want. If not, they should stand by their announcement because this is really inhuman.

I am also impacted with this reversal. I filled the document with my details and my wife details. USCIS behavior is ridiculous and doesn't make any sense.

Thank you immigration voice for your efforts. Hope of Best.

Default Well written

Very well written my friend, we all wasted lot of time collecting document, doing translation, medical, get vaccinations, etc. Let's hope we would be current again soon, and this time for good.

I am starting this on my own on whatsapp. Feel free to use and send message in your U.S. whatsapp groups.

Dear Group,

I know that this issue may not affect you directly, but please read and forward this message to the Indian community leaving in the U.S.

You may know at least one family in your community who are working in the United States on H-1B visa because they are stuck in the green card backlogs. On Sept 7th 2015, the US Department of State issued a visa bulletin that allowed many people to file for green cards and live their life with security. Today, they have retracted this visa bulletin and superseded with old dates of eligibility. I and my wife spent a significant amount of time and money in attorney fees and medical tests in making our green card applications ready for delivery to the USCIS on October 1st, 2015. To find that USCIS will not accept our application by changing the previously issued visa bulletin has caused significant emotional and financial trauma to my family. We are humbly requesting the government that thousands of legal immigrant families be allowed to file their applications as was promised by the previously issued October visa bulletin.

Please pass this message to your friends and family who maybe affected and support Immigration Voice on facebook (https://www.facebook.com/ImmigrationVoice) or their website (ImmigrationVoice.org - Home)

Please stay tuned to ImmigrationVoice website to immediate action items if you are affected. If you are not directly affected, we would also appreciate your liking our facebook page or support in whatever we you can.

Regards,
DMX17

So even after waiting of 15 years this was not the light at the end of the tunnel . What a waste of time, money and work loss. My whole family including my old parents and in-laws are stressed out. Shame on USCIS/DOS to do flip/flop like this. Living on H1b is like bonded labor and we were really hoping that we could filer AOS and get benefits of EAD. This is INHUMANE!!

Very well said. USCIS can retrogress to the year 1776 and screw themselves up but it did cost me money which could have been used to spend something wisely.

Default Feeling lot of pain and stress.

This is very painful. I had never expected that this could even happen.

I filled the forms for both me and my wife.

Hi Pappu,

Please let me know if IV is planning for a class action suit, I am willing to part of the suit as I am impacted financially and emotionally by the date reversal (just completed all required activities for filing the I485 as of yesterday).

Thanks,

RB
