Were any of your questions answered Aman? Atleast offline by any of the panelists? Would love to know what transpired after the Q&A session ended. Aman, if there were any skilled immigrants in that room, they would have stood up and applauded you.

Default Visa modernization

I just read this from one lawyers site, is that true? Why there is no talk about EB3, if this is true?
November 5, 2015

Earlier today, the Director of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), León Rodríguez, made a presentation during the Office of the Citizenship and Immigration Services Ombudsman Fifth Annual Conference. During his speech, Mr. Rodríguez only spent a few minutes discussing issues related to the agency's visa modernization efforts. And, while few details were provided, there were still some intriguing tidbits of information mentioned, including:

The USCIS is working to clarify the availability of the national interest waiver (NIW) for the employment-based, second preference (EB2) category, including eligibility for inventors, researchers, and entrepreneurs.
The agency is "working quite actively" on regulations to grant certain entrepreneurs the ability to be paroled into the United States.
Proposed regulations for American Competitiveness in the Twenty First Century Act (AC21) are in the works and are expected to be unveiled in the coming months.

Thank you so much Aman for raising our voice. it's everybody's frustration, hope they should take it serious.

but i did not see any news about I140 EAD rule in any other law groups websites, they only mentioned about AC21, portability of I140 if we change employer.

11/06/2015: Forthcoming USCIS Notice of Policy on Determining Whether a New Job is in "the Same or a Similar Occupational Classification" for Purposes of Section 204(j) Job Portability
•This new policy was submitted to the OMB for clearance on 09/25/2015, which will be approved by the OMB sooner or later this month. This policy will clarify the USCIS reinterpretation of AC 21 portability of the approved I-140 petition, more likely somewhat a liberal way to allow expanded opportunity for change of employment without losing the approved I-140 petitiion. Please stay tuned.

Default Action item?

Is there any action item related to this or are we just focussing on the HR 213 support from local congressman ?
Also any advocacy event in CA or DC or NJ or NY in future ? Where can we find info ? I did not find any any info on CA or NY chapter page so might be there was no events in these places but saw references to DC event which I would have loved to fly from CA to DC and attend those. Where do we find all this info ?

FYI: Senator Grassley sent a letter to DHS about the I-140 EAD/AC21 regulation and references "The Memo".

He mainly bashes Option 1 in the memo, though other options get a little bit of the "Grassley treatment".

I'm assuming the leaked memo was the one that IV leaked? What good has come of this now? Grassley and Sessions use legal immigrants as scapegoats while furthering the interests of tech companies that want indentured labor.

Nah. Don't worry about it. Most of the bashing was pro-forma and focused on option 1 which isn't likely to happen anyways.

Hopefully now they will move in bashing other things .

Obama's DHS Plans Invite New Wave of Foreign Professionals

Looks like there is no EAD to be from the excerpts below: correct if my interpretation was wrong..

Pressed by Breitbart, Breasseale insisted the pending regulation and the June plan are different.

“They are wholly separate – in substance, in authority, and in applicability. They simply are not the same thing… [and] we do not discuss the substance of pending regulations publicly until they are published,” he said.

When asked for evidence that the June memo has been sidelined, he evaded. “The fact that it was never acted upon is more than sufficient,” he insisted.

That's a terribly written story:

Quote:
But agency officials are developing a regulation on a similar topic, said Todd Breasseale, the department’s acting Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs. “The regulation that we ARE working on involves high-skilled foreign workers who are lawfully present,” he added, without explaining how the developing regulation and the June memo are any different.
Please relax guys . November 15th is only a week away.
