i was a member of usinpac many years back. my experience was that usinpac is a bunch of useless folks whose goal is to promote the guy who owns it. their only goal is to take pictures and post them online to make a show that they are connected and powerful. but they really dont have any influence. later i did some research to find out that the guy who owns usinpac is an IT consulting company owner and others associated with the group are IT consulting owners. how can they ask to free workers if their business model is to take advantage of us? my advice is dont bother to waste your time going to this useless group

I know 14000 AILA members who 'care' about backlog and I know atleast 1% of them tweet that they 'care' on twitter. But that doesnt mean they will do something about it.
When you bring new players to the mix, dynamics and equations change very fast and it may ultimately mislead focus from our main goal. Again, when you are not familiar with a new friend you are better off with a known enemy. I am sure IV has already considered these options and weighed their merits.

USINPAC is a joke. They have everything on their agenda starting from India's Budget to US-India Nuclear trade. If you ever need a ticket to attend an event that Prime Minister Modi is speaking, these are the go to guys. Please stop advising IV, as IV does a lot more than googling stuff and posting random comments on these forums. Please dont waste your time with all your ramblings. I recommend you to start a blog and post it there and I am sure you will have many clicks from like-minded folks. Good luck dude

Bhishma,

I find your tone extremely disparaging and negative. I have taken time to contact my local Congresswoman's office and meeting with her legislative aide for immigration along with other IV members. I also took my American dad and sister to show that we have voting influence.

All I'm trying to do is think outside the box so that we can collect more signatures on a petition, get a few more phone calls into the office, and make visits with a larger contingent of people so that we can get cosponsorship. It's all about magnifying our efforts.

The information about USINPAC is informative - it is better to not form alliances with them.

I am sure that you find my tone disparaging and negative. But I want you to realize that everything that I said is backed up by facts.
You corrected yourself that we shouldnt form alliances with USINPAC after reading my response. I encourage people to think outside the box and at the same also realize that there may be a few other folks who have already assessed these ideas and thoughts and moved on. Not all ideas are good, some evolve over time and some are left behind based on circumstantial findings.
Finally, when I respond to someone, I assume they are adults and can deal with some criticism and taste of reality. But if you find my words harsh, disparaging and negative then I will try to sugar coat my words when replying to your posts.

There is a stark difference between constructive criticism and using sarcastic statements that add no value such as "Please dont waste your time with all your ramblings. I recommend you to start a blog and post it there and I am sure you will have many clicks from like-minded folks."

When you say that you encourage outside the box thinking yet reply sarcastically about my "ramblings", you contradict yourself.

Anyways, enough of this catfight - let us put this behind us and focus our efforts on getting freedom from our oppressors.

Default 140-EAD Rule making started?

I see Matt Oh's blog saying this rule is launched today but no more details or links. Anyone seeing this at other sources?

There are no details yet. It just says "Retention of EB-1, EB-2, and EB-3 Immigrant Workers and Program Improvements Affecting Highly-Skilled H-1B Alien Workers " They don't say how.

The summary is more towards portability. I don't see anything on EAD , any thoughts?

Looks like it. In the Spring 2015 publication they mentioned EAD, now it is completely gone. I guess it is wait and watch.

I think it is still coming with EAD/AP.. although the language doesn't say it explicitly, but if you see "Summary of the Legal Basis:", it has some current laws mentioned that give authority to DHS to give out EAD to anyone they think eligible. So, I think giving out EAD to people with I-140 approval is easier than to anyone else. Since, they had the same basis for H4-EAD as well. I don't think why not? Also, the agency has been mentioning I-140 EAD wordings in all of their conferences, so I hope everything will be in our best interests.

I thank IV for their efforts. I think, after the last meeting and especially, the speech from Aman, has pressurized them to get it out the door as fast as possible.

an Administrative Appeals Office precedent decision
Does anyone know which AAO decision this refers to ?

And I find it very very very curious that the statement that DHS used is identical to the statement by AILA yesterday.

While too soon to tell for sure...read the summary of legal basis section. It has two things we want:

1) authority to extend employment to non-citizens
2) decide revocability of any petition

I am cautiously optimistic. Cheers!
