Default Today's comments

Today's comments:

Quote:
Legal, Tax Paying, Law abiding immigrants are already suffering with decade long Green Card backlog. They must be given EAD and AP (Travel Document) once they have approved I-140 immigrant petition, without the need to provide complelling circumstances, so that they can freely change jobs and progress in their careers. This also provides benefit to American Citizens by providing a level field where Employers do not get undue advantage for hiring and locking H1B immigrants for years by filing for their Green Card.

The AP (Travel Document) will provide refief in travelling internationally hassle free and without the risk of getting stuck outside US leaving behind their Job, House, etc. assets in US.

There should not be a need to start a new PERM and I-140 application with new Employer. That is totally unnecessary and if at all that happens then this Rule is not really changing anything.

This rule in its current form does almost nothing to help retain highly skilled workers in US. It is very sad that USCIS is listening to lobbyists to come up with such an unfair rule and not involving the real high skilled workers in the process to come up with a fair rule. The administration must be fair with Legal immigrants if they want to build and maintain a strong Economy.
Only 11 days left for commenting. Looking forward to technical comments from IV Leads.

OK guys - relax and be patient.

Vikidisi has already said that people are working very hard on the comments. No need to post how many days are left, as I am sure everyone knows that.

I used to follow Siskind on twitter. I unfollowed him for the following reasons. And if you don't know what deceit looks like then see there:

He retweeted the following two tweets:

"Sounds like @HillaryClinton just committed to introducing immigration legislation in her first 100 days as president."

"@SenSanders won't say how long it will take him to get #immigration reform passed if elected."

Because he supports Clinton, so he retweets that Clinton will "introduce" a bill in first 100 days. But for Sanders he retweets that Sanders won't say how long it will take to "pass" immigration bill. Introducing a bill and passing a bill are totally different standards.

Even President Obama cannot tell how long he will take to pass immigration bill. Clinton cannot commit either and if she did she would be lying, once again. What is the point of introducing a bill in first 100 days if Clinton cannot get that bill passed in the Congress for next 8 years?

Immigration lawyer wants establishment candidate. Clinton must be good because it will be more of the same. Therefore, Sanders must be bad.

Or wait, did Sanders say that he "opposed immigration bill because it created environment of exploitation of guest workers"? Ah! that make sense. This explains why immigration lawyers don't like Sanders. How else will immigration lawyers make money if Sanders is elected President. Because immigration lawyers don't like Sanders position on immigration, they want every one to think that Sanders is against immigration or immigrants. In reality, Sanders appear to be simply again stupid immigration laws.

To me this explains why Siskind hates Sanders.

Special interests and lawyers hate everybody who is anti-establishment. Having said that, this Sanders guy was talking about exploitation of low skilled workers attracted by unions. He has never spoken against exploitation of workers who are hired as high skilled immigrants.

Default Bernie is the man, f*k siskind

bernie said in another event that if he cannot get a bill passed he will use executive action.

Hillary side stepped ( she could also do executive action, but did not say it )

Both said its top priority.

But only bernie says about abuse of guest workers which is exactly whats happening to us.

bernie is the only one who says if corporations wants to bring in people let them play by the rules and pay market wages, he is on track. She is not.

Siskand can go F**k himself. He blocked me for asking legitimate q's.

Here's what Donald Trump could do as president — without Congress's help - Vox

I love Donald Trump.
He will definitely close down this IT bodyshopping that is giving India a bad name. Restrict H1B and L1B program so that high paid people can come. Then close loopholes on greencards.

Seriously at this point Hilary looks like a corporate drone. Feels like she wants to become a president because she want to become a president, there is no conviction in her debates. If it comes down to Trump VS Hilary I will root for Trump.

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for meand there was no one left to speak for me.
.......

Trump is running on hate....nothing can be achieved from hate and anger! He will come for us...because we are NOT one of them....it suits his agenda to come after any and all immigrants!

Trump will do what is good for America. Not what is good for Indians lawyers or companies.
That is what should be . Country is not for grabs to everyone and anyone. Only for deserving who make the country great. If we prove our worth which many already have then there is nothing to fear.
The malicious campaign. Is being spread by the other side . I am for making the country great and safe. If the country is great and safe it will help world become better.

Wow dude...you really believe that shit? Wow..heaven help us if Trump is president. It scares me that seemingly educated people like you are falling for his bullshit. Where do you think he will allocate resources if we becomes the president? Giving us greencards or feeding the seed of hate he promised? He will get ICE to conduct more and more raids, to which the illegals will push back hard on ..ultimately creating a deeper rift between immigrants and citizens of this country. For American citizens, Illegals and legals are BOTH immigrants and that legal vs illegal difference gets lost very easily upon the rednecks and idiots that vote republican. I got called Arab once and when I said I am from India...the response was " Doesnt matter to me..get the fuck out of my country"...so be careful who you think supports you ...

Seriously!!! People don't understand what he promises! It's so easy to say he will be great based on a few lines you read on facebook, once you go deeper into the headlines and actually research this fellow...any level headed person will see through his Agenda!

I live currently in the most red state possible....ALABAMA!!!What I see here....scares the shit out of me!

This is the REDNECK state! Believe me when I say this.....SHIT WILL HIT THE FAN if Trump becomes president!
There is such an undertone of racist, xenophobic, anti-immigrant attitudes here....Trump is already bringing is out in the open....and if he wins....GOD HELP US my friend!!!

Forget about Green cards and citizenship...people will be forced to GET THE HELL OUT OF HERE!

There is a reason white supremacy groups have attributed their increase in membership to Trump...!!!!

Angry Sharing an article!!

http://www.thelegalintelligencer.com...20160122160414

They indeed admit the lobbying that we are aware thanks to IV's insight has made them swerve out of the promises in many rules not to mention that the EAD rule has been watered down due to "other pressures".

Waiting eagerly for IV's technical comments to be provided so that all of us can follow them diligently and wish and pray that it reaches the "LEAD filled" ears of those folks who sit on the decision making table for this rule.

A major disappointment came in September and October, however. The plan included a new procedure meant to improve the communication between the U.S. Department of State and USCIS to ensure every authorized employment-based visa is used each year. The plan was meant to help alleviate the long visa backlogs by ensuring that USCIS could accurately report its demand to the State Department. The new procedure allows applicants to submit their final "adjustment of status" applications based on reasonable predictions by the State Department of the yearly visa usage at the beginning of the government's fiscal year. While the plan as originally announced at the beginning of September would have allowed tens of thousands of employment-based immigrants to get their applications in to USCIS so demand could accurately be predicted, political pressure and fear of lawsuits caused USCIS to scale back the program dramatically, meaning that it now has virtually no practical impact for employment-based immigrants.

"political pressure and fear of lawsuits caused USCIS to scale back the program dramatically" ain't that some BS. I think we very well know who put the pressure on USCIS.

BTW the article is behind a paywall, to get around google the title of the article and click on the first link
