If Option 4 is the chosen, that would be another broken promise by the WH. As the intent was clearly to help people like us who have approved immigrant petitions.

Although, the money argument if correct, is not something that we can take lightly.

Are they the ones who have asked USCIS to not include AP in this document? What use is an EAD without AP?

The lawyers need to give us answers why they did it.

There is also background activity whereby immigration lawyers and companies are working very hard to derail EAD for I140 fix. They are trying all sorts of ways to derail or water down this fix that we have worked for years.

Immigration lawyers and companies want this fix to be only applied to those with 'Extraordinary Circumstances' i.e. where employee can show economic hardship, exploitation by employer etc. They are trying to water down so no more than 600 people in an year would be able to benefit from this fix.

We ask that you NOT engage in any online petitions. Online petitions are distraction and diversion from real effort. Often times these petitions are started by immigration lawyers as diversion from real advocacy. Online petitions severely hurt our efforts. Again, please DO NOT engage in online petitions.

We will soon publish action items and we ask you to actively participate in these actions items.

Here is the link to FB Post for this information/announcement.

Thank you

Team IV
Well put

Yes. Looking at the documents, it is clear that AP is not included. Nothing hidden in fine lines too.

Those people who come here and thump lawyers' chest should answer this question. They know better from their sources. They are the ones who mentioned in their forums that they are happy with EAD only. They will get what they wanted.

Did IV attend this "Regulation Retreat"? Also, since this is from June, is there anything changed as far as the options or the likely outcome we expect? If anything, that can be shared publicly, please let us know to help with this anxiety.

Must say in Option 4, the reasoning is contractory and sounds very much like that lawyer who spoke in the USCIS call.

Nonsense E.g. Under Pros, Bullet # 2 says we need to have as many H-1B filed so that we can use the fees and fund NSF etc. But Bullet # 3 comes right back and says that the ultimate goal is to ensure using the fees we train our people and end H-1B program.

We are here after 15 years of AC21 and there is no sign of us leaving too.

This is not a detailed document. So, do not think have to jump to conclusion that there is no AP. I think AP will be there without that it is meaningless

They cannot. And thats exactly what the lawyers want. I lost my money on the stupid lawsuit. I still believed them. Now it looks true that they are no good for immigrants at all.

I agree. This document just talks about which population to specifically include for this benefit. Option 1 is the least restrictive in that there is a chance undocumnted folks can get an I-140 approved and get EAD.

Option 4 is the lawyer/employer friendly version in that it keeps the cashflow coming in and employee retained.

The VB modernization turned out to be meaningless... if they pick option 4, I140-EAD will also be meaningless...if there is no AP, it will be less meaningful...

I would sincerely hope that the administration understands the essential necessity of an immigrant to visit his home country or travel abroad for work. Thats why I believe AP is a somewhat implicit understanding.

This administration has a history of self-goals... like with VB modernization... I think IV is trying to tell us I140-EAD is a done deal... but there is still room for sabotage... like Option 4 and "'Extraordinary Circumstances"

Option 3 excludes, parolees! WTF? That implies this option will not provide AP and the only benefit would be that one would not have to start the GC process again but, of couse, will have have to be on H-1B.

So option 3 is waterdown option.

Option 2 is the only one that we are expecting and that should come with an AP.

So the one year still applies for an approved petition.
