Default Retrogression after the mad rush

My thinking is that this mad rush of dates being current, should not have much effect on the retrogression in Oct 07, because either way most of us will get green cards only after date becomes current....granted we'll get EAD and AP.....Since last retrogression for EB-2 was April 04, my guess is going to be somewhere like Jan 04.........Please share ur thoughts....

My prediction for this year..

EB1 = Current
EB2 = Jan 2003 (Because of BEC cases coming out, chance for them to file I-485 in October)
EB3 = U

It doesn't make sense to push back again to Jan 2003 for EB2. It's been there for over an year and all of them who had that priority date would have applied and gotten their GC.

Yes but don't forget all those BEC folks from EB2 PD Jan 03 (and earlier) to Apr 04 who applied in this June and some in July !! These people are going to create the next demand.

Thumbs down

I'm getting fed up with people on this forum who assume that India is the only country from which people immigrate to the US, and always only mention the India dates when talking about cut off dates, and assume that are the only dates people want to talk about.

Even though India is by far the country of birth with the most high skilled immigrants to the US, it still takes up less than half of the number of high skilled immigrants. By some discussions going on on this forum, you would think 95% of the high skilled immigrants come from India.

Cool we need to chill

guys...

don't be pessimists...this baloon has been blown a lot bigger than what it really is. there have been some crazy estimates that the number of application that would reach USCIS are anywhere from 100k to 700K or something...its a joke! the lawyer's websites would state anything to make you cringe at this whole process...

Remember this: nobody is going to give you a warm and fuzzy feeling about the dream of getting a green card in short duration...you just have to learn to be pleased by what has been accomplished this month and hope to expect similar good things happening along the way in the future. just keep on doing action items from IV, continue contributing and expect that they will decide to use the last few years' ROW visa to clear the backlog...Cheers!

EB3 India may show Jan 23 500 B.C , but cant be U because the quota starts fresh in October. They goto 'U' only when respective category numbers for the country are exhausted for the year. Usually numbers will become unavailable only in last quarter of the year.

H-1B numbers:

Characteristics of Specialty Occupation Workers (H-1B): Fiscal Year 2000
Characteristics of Specialty Occupation Workers (H-1B): Fiscal Year 2001
Characteristics of Specialty Occupation Workers (H-1B): Fiscal Year 2002
Characteristics of Specialty Occupation Workers (H-1B): Fiscal Year 2003
Characteristics of Specialty Occupation Workers (H-1B): Fiscal Year 2004
Characteristics of Specialty Occupation Workers (H-1B): Fiscal Year 2005

India accounted for the following percentages of new H-1B visa issued:

FY 2000 : 44.5 %
FY 2001 : 45.2 %
FY 2002 : 20.4 %
FY 2003 : 27.8 %
FY 2004 : 46.0 %
FY 2005 : 49.0 %

Note that this is only H-1B and doesn't include other high skilled immigrant visa like L1 and TN.

Yes you are correct. Guys just like that start some heart breaking threads. Not doing proper research on such delicate and sensitive issues.

Where is the presence of other guys? how many of them responded to "the country of birth" poll? People of other nations doesn't suffer as much as people of India.
