wahwah/and others:
So, do you know how many unused visas are there from EB1 (India) till date for FY08? And, as per, your note above, these unused EB1 (India) visas will trickle down to EB2 (India)?

I suspect not many. Big bodyshoppers send all kinds of people on L1 visas who then apply in EB-1 through multinational manager position. Few if any will trickle down to EB-2.

But that's not the worst part - I think come Oct 2008 (and every year henceforth) the same scenario will repeat - EB-2 India will be gone in a flash.

Atleast EB-3 is available. Hopefully in Aug or Sep they might make EB-3 current to use up all visas. EB-2, on the other hand, is finished for the year.

While we are on this topic. Has anybody switched from EB-2 to EB-3? What is the procedure?

you're incorrect again. no eb2 india cases can be adjudicated till pd is current.

cases will be worked on and pre-adjudicated but you will assigned a visa number and given a gc only when your pd is current and your receipt date is prior to the date shown in the service center processing time.

take my word for it....i've been in the green card process for over 6 years.

Just because PD became current last july does not mean that the same will happen every year. Wake up guys, this is SIMPLE math, THEY NEED TO FIX IT!!! or else we all will be stuck for ever.............

You are correct. I know many of us would look back some day and feel sad about the precious years of our life that we wasted waiting for GC. It is probably time to move on, either to a new job or to go back home. We do not belong here.

Most of us have the courage to fight for some positive outcome...But at the same time, I'm sure most of us have given up. The simple reason being, nobody in the US Govt really cares for legal immigrants how much ever we all try to persuade them and its showing every month on visa bulletins...because, for them, fixing Legal Immigration is the last item on their priority list as they really dont have anything to gain from it. There's no point in spending our precious time every month monitoring the Visa bulletins hoping for something to happen and sending out depressing quotes (like this). There is simply no way that we could even push it a few slots higher as we dont have enough influence on the Govt. It could have happened in some countries where bribery works. But definitely not in the US. Sometimes dont we all feel that bribery is infact good? C'mon...sometimes...we do...

Why is there so much of discrimination in this world? Cant everyone live and let live in peace all the time?

When my priority date was current I was able to apply for AOS and the receipt from USCIS has an "A" number assigned. Isn't that the Visa number assigned to me? Do I still have to wait for my priority date to become current again to receive GC?

Well this should really galvanize all of us to pursue with endless zeal the goal to contribute towards the one million dollar mark people earlier alluded to. Without financial muscle no legistlative fixes will be really possible. Every political lobby requires strong financial backing.
