Default Came in May 2000

I came in May 2000

I am a software engineer

First Labor filed in July 2002 through one of the big American Consulting Company - Project was over in Dec 2002 and no prospects with the company so changed jobs in Dec 2002.

Joined a fulltime job in Dec 2002 - Company got acquired twice -Labor filed in April 2004 under EB3/RIR and was pending at Philly BEC. After the second acqusition was layed off in 6th year of H1b and found myself in deep water.

Moved into Consulting company in 6th year of h1b - got 7th year extension based on labor pending in Philly BEC and applied for new GC under EB2 PERM, new Labor PD is March 2nd 2006 and filed for 485 in July 2007. Got 8th , 9th, 10th year h1b extension based on approved 140.

Moved into a fulltime job invoking ac21 in May, 2008 and recently responded to NOID on my 485 because ex employer revoked my approved 140.

The struggle continues - with lots of hope and learnt so many things in this journey.

I am a big fan of IV and have participated in a lot of campaigns and continue to support IV in every possible way

After seeing all of your dates I can feel your pain. I am so sorry.

I think USA law makers should think about points system (like Canada) and who is working in the country ( for every year they should add some points) should give preference...etc...

Hope situations will change after the elections with new directions from OBAMA

Default Feel your pain

I am so pained reading these posts. I thought I was unlucky, having been here since 8/8/99 and now getting my gc. I see people from 1994 without green card. This is just BS. I will continue to support this org due to what I have gained (July 2nd filer). This is a great org and hopefully everyone will get their gcs soon may it be eb2/3. Lets keep it going guys, its all about numbers.

Default August 6, 1994

I guess a couple people beat me by a few days. I came to the US on Aug 6, 1994. After three degrees, I started my labor cert process in November 2001. With the same employer through out this time (except for small stint after Hurricane Katrina).

Default Not waiting for long

Came in USA : April 2003
MS completed : April 2005.

labor Filed : Jan 03 2008
I 140 approved : July 2008.

I know I am not waiting for that long compare to other IVians. But I am here not to be like one of you. I love politics and immigration.

Immigrants has no rights in whole world.. even for Banlgadesis in India or Indians in america or anywhere else ..

With globalization of market gates should be open for highly skilled people. There should not be word "Immigrants" or "Alians" for highly skilled people. Markets are open for businessmen why not for highly skilled people..

I hate when I hear from our own indian people who got gc based on family quota.. doesnot want us to be in USA. people hate who are on h1b and l1b. because they waited more to come here and we came here in short time and making good money.. this will go on ....
