Shv - my response was more for the IV guests than you or other IV members.

All these lawyers (who likely read IV forums as IV guests lol) with blogs are on the internet floating around expert opinions that are against immigrant interests, typically on why something cannot be done or why they cannot "conceptualize" certain interpretation. Mainly they are doing a consolation job to shape the opinion in the "right" direction kinda like managing expectations from the beginning without trying to change shit.

You, me and many more IV and non-IV folks know these tactics very well by now.

That Sleazekind got nominated to the AILA national board. That's his reward from AILA for screwing us and making DOS/DHS/USCIS hostile towards our cause. All the ground work done by IV in building relation with US officials has been undone by this a..hole lawyer.. i am amazed we got duped by his guile..
We should fully support IV's twitter war against him and his ilk...

It is more of a popularity gimmick for him now.

Siskind is like Kim kardashian. The more attention you give the more fame he gets. If someone goes and ask him to drop the lawsuit he will make him VS VI. Just ignore him.

Default From A Loyal Bootlicker

Did you miss the part where I say we (REMOVED/LAWYERS ORGANIZATION) had a discussion with Scott Corley. This was late November or early December. When he told us about his proposed bill we said we will support it. At that point we were waiting for the rin:1615-ac05 which was with the OMB. He said we should talk again after the reg was out. He did not expect the reg to be of much help. Anyhow, at that point he didn't suggest that we fund his effort and we presumed Compete America will be funding it. Since then, we haven't been able to get back in touch with him. Obviously, he and IV reconnected and his reluctance to speak with us is obviously connected to IV's agenda of being the sole arbiters of backlogged EB at any and every cost, including stalling any sensible collaboration that would be of help to the community. In any case. It is highly hypocritical and unethical of IV to collaborate with the lobbyist on Compete America's payroll while calling fwd.us and Partner for New America anti-immigrant. If all employer promoted groups are anti immigrant, then certainly Compete America would also fall in that category. So, are they collecting money from the EB community to fund a lobbyist for anti-immigrant employers? Incidentally, they started targeting fwd and New America after we revaled that we have been collaborating with them and they were the ones who helped us get in touch with the WH officials.

Busy day at work, want to get the day done with so I can enjoy this long weekend - so I will keep it brief and to the point.

The person who wrote that has no idea how things work and has absolutely no idea of whats going on. If Compete or anyone else will not talk with them, it is because Compete and everyone else has realized - completely on their own - with no help from us - that these are keyboard warriors with nothing to offer.

Hello IV, a Useless Keyboard warrior on truckitt said the below about Recapture through administrative means:

16. What are the most important policy and operational changes, if any, available within the existing statutory framework to ensure that administrative policies, practices, and systems fully and fairly allocate all of the immigrant visa numbers that Congress provided for and intended to be issued, but were not issued in past years?

Note the "but were not issued in past years"! It means allocate the visas wasted from previous years.

Is it possible that the WH was planning to recapture wasted GCs but dropped all plans after DAPA got stuck in courts? Its a theory and can be debated.

Is there any specific code in the INA that says only Congress can do recapture? There is none, cos Congress did not account for USCIS' inefficiency. They did not write laws anticipating that USCIS will waste 1000s of GCs specially since they are fully funded by the applicants' themselves.

IV asked for Recapture too. I looked up IV's comments for the same request for information and found the following on pages 22-23:

Recapture of previously unused visa numbers since 1992

It is estimated that there are over a million people stuck in the Employment Based green card backlogs. Some of these immigrants in the backlogs will have to wait for over a decade. The employment based green card backlogs are not in the best interest of America and Americans because the backlogs are an impediment for immigrant employees to change employer. Any system in which the employees are beholden to the employers for many years (or decades), give the employers significant leverage in the employer-employee relationship, thus making immigrant employees more attractive over US workers in the marketplace.

It is in the best interest of Americans and America to resolve employment based green card backlogs. One possible way to achieve this is by recapturing over 218,000 unused employment based green cards since 1992. These visa numbers remained unused because USCIS and State Department intended to allocate these visa numbers to qualified candidates. However, these visa numbers were not allocated before the year end. Section 8 U.S. Code 1156 of Immigration Nationality Act defines how the unused visa numbers ought to be treated. The existing law provides method to issue unused immigrant visa to a qualified candidate without any limitation on the timeframe in which the visa can be issued. Because there is no time limitation defined for when the unused visa number can be issued to a qualified alien, the law allows recapturing the unused green cards and applying them to resolve the existing backlogs. Every year since 1992 the immigrant visa number remained unused, there were qualified aliens waiting for timely allocation of visa numbers.

Therefore, we respectfully submit that in the spirit of the existing law recapture the unused green cards since 1992, and, apply these green cards to address the backlog of over a million high skilled immigrants

I can only imagine that IV was told that Obama Administration did not consider it legal and told them they weren't going to do it.

People talking about this over and over again are just "useless keyboard warriors" who want to waste everyone's time. People should be focusing on doing HR.213 meetings - not pushing petitions. This "Useless Keyboard Warrior" is well known for being obsessed with, fixated on and [PROFANITY] at Recapture - which as IV has made clear will not happen under this Administration.
