You guys have much better ways (direct experience) of backroom discussions!
You brought up a very nice point suggesting some one to stay on H1 even after EAD/AP.
I also believed that is in employee's best interest. Because if there is a problem with the petition the employee can always fallback.

Is this a myth? Can you shed some light?

I also read AILA response to the visa reversal....sucked big time!

There was also a list on fixes that they said should be done quickly .........AND

I-140 EAD/AP was not on that list.

Thanks, but the fight is real …… we cannot afford sitting at home or sign online petition or believe in fake messiahs ……. unless the lawmakers see your face at their offices they don't give one flying fc*k what you send them …… its also not worth spending hours in this forum, yes this IV forum arguing with these mindless Mr Smiths….. if anybody wants to be real beneficiary, needs to come out and damn fight the fight.

Someone had to do it, right?

If my face on the story can bring relief to a million others fighting with me, I will consider my duty done.

It's a myth and should not be applied to ALL cases. Maybe there are special cases.

I would argue the other way. Use EAD/AP so that you don't have to worry about

1) maintaining H1 status
2) renewals and visa which cost money (and fill their pockets)
3) don't forget amendments if you change location etc...

Besides, the chances of I-485 denials are very low if your case is clean (which most are). Why would it be denied? IF the I-140 was the reason for denial, you are screwed anyway for any possible H1 extension given that you have already used up your 6 years by then.

I am not a lawyer but I think the lawyers should learn this from an immigrant. Oops, they already know but advise opposite.

Don't want to sound negative or pessimistic but with each passing day i'm skeptical about USCIS reverting the dates back.

IV folks and everyone in this forum is trying really hard to keep the morals high.

It's ok to be pessimistic, we will always tell you the truth - unlike you know who.

I don't think anyone knows if we can put enough pressure to either get DHS to back down or get the WH to override DHS, but I guarantee you we will go to the mat for this.

We might have had an understanding with the WH, but we will never ever compromise the people that trust us for the sake of that relationship - unlike this guy over here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qLup3ye_gIo

This is the most pathetic post I have seen in a long time.

I know you have been waiting a long time for your GC - just like me.

I know you have probably faced complicated issues during your wait - like whether to quit your job and port to EB-2 or take a chance that the big VB move that IV (and only IV) predicted would happen would actually happen - in short, the kind of problems even your wife can't really understand.

There are only two types of people that understand your problems - IV and everybody else.

Everybody else understands your problems because they want to take advantage of you in some way, IV understands your problems because we live the exact same problems every day.

Stockholm syndrome is what happens when captives sympathize with their captors. Immigration lawyers have a better understanding of the intricacies of your situation than most H4 visa holders do.

They use and abuse this knowledge to make you think they are on your side and are your best advocates. They know exactly what noises to make and at what time to make those noises. They are the ultimate psychopaths.

Inspite of having to spend 75% of the FaceTime I have with people in DC fighting against the lies that these lawyers spread, I will still fight for misguided idiots like you. A lot of IV members - who have been doing this for 9 years now, and are citizens now - will make the same choice.

Maybe it's because we know that for every idiot like you suffering from Stockholm syndrome, there are 10 people out there who actually deserve relief - maybe it's because we can't help the bulk of our membership without helping idiots like like you - maybe because it is the right thing to do - I don't know.

How is Modi coming into picture. He is irrelevant to this discussion. Don't bring something useless.

Btw, the doc is even more scary for the retrogressed population. It seems that the Govt has gone back on their original plan to do something. The relief is not near.

Oter than that, it may mean the Govt did make a mistake on their part, and court may order some action/relief.

And that relief would be only to the named plantiffs whose specific scenario can be proved to be irreplacebly damaged.

May be. But it's a class action lawsuit. So you may get a check of $29 or so, with the bulk going to lawyers.
