Folks

We have to actively participate in the IV's efforts; I think that's the only hope we have.

Even though the CIR address little bit of Employment based immigration it addresses mostly the illegal immigration which is very sensitive and we got killed by that.

And IV is very much focusing on segregate our issues from it.

I strongly believe that DC Rally can change congress & Senate's view towards US.

The Rally will create awareness to the public that we are not illegalís, we are in here legally, Pay taxes and follow the rules of the land.

Please participate in the Rally and Hope the Best

the india line has always had a massive backlog like this, has it not? so whats new or worse this time around ?

While I admire your optimism. I must tell you I feel it is misplaced. A few points to be noted.
The numbers from BECs approvals and the 2 yrs of pent up demand created from retrogression of dates, means that of the filnigs currently being done the Majority will be EB India, for no other reason that that was the country most affected by retrogression.
In years gone by there were over 200K visas from the AC21 recapture legislation until 2005. After that this year we had this mad rush to approve 60K visas in June.............which actually benefited EB India. Now looking into the next 12 months no such saving grace is foreseen.
The gov't has a stated objective now of reducing the time for security checks. Much of the stuck applications from ROW will now get unstuck and use up visa numbers. Remember now all we have is the 140K visas.

Bottom line...........if you want your green card in the next 1-2 yrs you better had hope and do something so that things work out in terms of relief such as recapture legislation. Otherwise be prepared to wait 5yrs or more if your 485 is going in the oven now.

Great Job!
Seeing this, It makes more sense to fight for removing wait while I-485 is regtrogressed, then to fight for using the unused visa numbers! I might be wrong, correct me if I am.

high number of approvals because of schedule A workers (malu nurses). So dont let that fool you into thinking they are approving a lot of cases from India. Also, there was a visa recapture back in early 2000 or 2001. This is what had helped the dates get current for India.

People,

Don't forget that people from 2001 are still waiting to get their GCs. See to confirm. So calculating from 2005 onwards makes no sense, especially when a huge number of people are from before then.

Default Some numbers from Oh Law to ponder

Here are some numbers from Oh Law to look at. These numbers could be used by the experts here to make an estimate till the USCIS will actually come out and make an announcement on the number of I-485 applications received between July 2 and August 17, 2007.

From the Oh Law Web site:

Quote:

08/14/2007: USCIS I-485 Workload Statistics
The following statistics reflect a steady increase in the number of I-485 applications (including family-based and other cases) during the months before the July VB fiasco hit the roof as is shown in the following table:
  • Month New Receipt Total Pending June 2007 69,098 597,844 May 2007 68,265 594,706 April 2007 59,266 580,507 March 2007 62,020 572,779 February 2007 45,554 574,783 January 2007 52,082 583,682 December 2006 50,411 588,039 November 2006 53,016 578,805
07/26/2007: BEC Labor Certification Status as of 07/20/2007
  • AILA's teleconference with DOL on 07/24/2007 reflects as follows: [Courtesy of AILA]
    • Total balance: 28,300
    • RIR=Fewer than 1,000
    • TR=More than 27,300
      • Recruitment process has yet to be initiated=2,000
      • Recruitment process underway=More than 25,300

Unquote.


From the above above numbers, it is hard to believe that there are still 200,000 Labor certifications pending with the BECs with Priority Dates (PDs) as per June 2007 VB.

I rest my case and leave the floor to the IV experts, most of whose PDs are probably older that 2000/2001.

Default Guess Estimate of pending I-485 application for EB3 ROW

This is just a guess estimate of the percentage of LC for India and China from Circus123's numbers: 30%-39%

from 2002-2005, we have about 192,411 LC total, which means about 117,371 to 134,688 LC for ROW (including Mexico)

this means we have maybe a little more than 134,688 pending I-485 application with PD between last VB cut off date Nov 01 and Mar VB cut off date Jan 05. 99% of those pending 485s are from EB3 ROW since EB2 ROW being current for a while and I assume there is no backlog on those.

This doesn't give a lot of hope of future movement of cutoff date for EB3 ROW till maybe Oct VB

again, this is just an estimate and it can be wrong. if you think otherwise, please provide your feedback or opinion.
Thanks
