Question Ron Gotcher's Prediction for May 2008

Hey check this prediction out.

http://immigration-information.com/f...ead.php?t=4541

I think it is like a orchard of mangoes miles long. The riped mangoes are plucked and the farmer moves on to the next tree. He has to walk up and down the whole stretch every month in the second week to determine what's ripe and what's not. He then comes back with his helpers with baskets . There might be some accidental drops of ripe mangoes which get lost for a while Just my analogy of EB immigration .

Correct me if I am wrong...

What I understood from Ron's article:
  • They're not processing fast enough to exhaust visa numbers.
  • They want to minimize visa number wastage.
  • They may move dates significantly forward so that they can approve low-hanging fruits to approve as many as possible
  • Many people will have dates current, but few will get approved... it'll be luck of draw.
  • Dates will then return to retrogressed levels at the beginning of the next financial year.
  • However, overall visa number wastage should be much smaller than previous years as they have started moving the dates forward much sooner this time.
Disclaimer: This is my interpretation of Ron's post. These are not my predictions.
Personally, I'm Pessimistic... being in India-EB3, that's not a state of mind... it's a lifestyle.

Seems like a good interpretation to me.

Pessimism as a lifestyle is hilarious

Backlog and NameCheck were the pesticides used so far and we've been pushing for organic products.. no use of pesticides... Seems USCIS/DHS agreed with our understanding of potential harm due to use of pesticides and are moving towards organic feed :-)

Default Thats my understanding too...

Thats been my understanding of whats been happening since last summer.

I see every reason for USCIS to move the dates forward to early 2007. That will be a sweet spot where they won't have to accept anymore AOS applications (since all applications upto that time have already been filed in July 07). They will have a vast pool of AOS applications from 2001 to 2006, and they can just pick cases from that pool, and approve them.
This is assuming no major jump to CP.
