Thanks IV...you are awesome ! Should we still continue providing our "true" and deeply felt feelings into the comments section for this rule???

Hi,

No I did not attach the same file. I simply took the contents and saved them in a notepad along with the starting comments which are mine at the start.

---------------------------------------------------------------
I would like to express my strong rivulsion to the manner in which this entire rule brings down the hopes of the millions of legal immigrants who were promised EAD and AP along with job portability but it was broken withi is watered down version. As per an organization which represents backlogged legal immigrant community, this was due to the involvement of the lobbyist in the DHS just a few months before bringing out of the rule. After carefully reading the contents of the rule and the details coming out of the modus operandi behind it as per the above mentioned organization, it seems that there is a lot left out from this proposed relief of the POTUS. I would like to request that the FBI investigate in the way the rule was developed and the possibilities of corruption around this rule-making involving the forces who wanted to prevent legal immigrants from getting EAD + AP.

Here are my comments:-
1) EAD and AP should be given to all the legal immigrants who have their I-140 approved.
2) There should be no "compelling circumstances" cause in the rule. That is just horrible. Please remove it.
3) Remove the clause of only allowing those within one year of their dates being current to apply . Please remove this restriction along with the other.
4) Remove the need to file for a new green card application after they have switched jobs. The old I-140 should be available in order to file for the green card.
5) Start an FBI investigation of possible corruption angles in this rule making process.

I am sure that you know about the talent leaving this country and moving outside the US to start businesses and create jobs. This rule fails in every way to help the legal immigrant who is backlogged and who was promised relief by the White House. Please revise this and take help from Immigration Voice to get this done. If taking help from a corporate lobbyist is not a problem for DHS ( who has clear interests in watering down the rule and preventing freedom to backlogged legal immigrants) then I am sure that you can do the same. Also, please ask the FBI to get involved. This will surely help.

I have added further comments in the attached files which should give the complete picture of my thoughts on this rule.

This rule needs to be improved so that H1B and other legal immigrants can go ahead and switch jobs, start businesses and create jobs for Americans in the USA as well as give them the freedom to live life without the fear of exploitation from the employer. This will also help raise wages for the Americans as no legal immigrant will be forced to wait in the same job at low wages.

Please improve and make the rule more beneficial for the legal immigrants who are waiting for their green cards fo so long. I dont think you want them to go back especially when they could be starting businesses, creating jobs and paying taxes to the governments overseas, if they did so due to the frustrations of the current immigration system.

Obama said one thing and did something else on right about everything during his 2 terms. See for yourself. This is the new low for politics which is suppose to be dirty.

How Obama failed to shut Washington's revolving door - POLITICO

This explains what happened to EAD for I140 regulation.

Yes, please do. It can't hurt to provide our unambiguous and unanimous disapproval of this rule. Now that USCIS has fired its first shot by issuing this ridiculous rule, we have to act to make them change it and commenting boldly is the right way to do it. The last thing we want is for any of these bad actors to be able to fudge the statistics and argue that not too many people disapproved of it in the first place.

Comments added by my wife as well. Her tracking number 1k0-8nbf-n5os.

In addition 2 months ago we started a 50 Dollar monthly contribution to IV every month.
We plan to increase that to 100 soon. Thank you IV for your help.

It simply means, close to what the current law can allow. In other words, close to what we wanted it's initial intention to be - which is freedom from employers for those that have an approved LPR petition.

What I feel this means is, Administration fears there will be lawsuit and potentially no implementation of any relief if we stray too far from the current law even though DHS will have the authority to do it. So given the constraint I guess they have asked IV now to see if anything can be tweaked in the proposed rule closer to how it is now and the current law to provide additional or in my words true relief.

This is my interpretation alone.
