Exclamation No EB2 for Software/IT people?

Hello All,
I have been reading in a lot of posts that EB-2 option will be removed for Software people.

Can anyone provide me a link for it? I can't seem to find it.

Thanks

That would be devastating! I dont see any positives out of that move.

Nothing positive? Check this out:

http://immigrationvoice.org/forum/sh...ad.php?t=22242 (Job Zone changes for IT Jobs and EB-2)

There were those who got their I-140 cleared under EB2 and were practically jumping with joy at the door closing behind them. Some were even taking credit for the move

Generally it doesnot help to stop line behind you. But here in USCIS world that may help as people from 2006 got GC before people from 2004-5 . If no people from 2006 were there may be 2004- 05 people may have got their card.

but if new administration makes USCIS to more productive ,closing door behind any one will not help.

Frankly I don't know why people think that IT folks cannot qualify for EB2. Inspite of all changes done by DOL, people with 4yr degree + 5 years of exp. can qualify for EB2. If the company can make a good business case and can prove that there are other people (Permanent Residents/ Citizens) in the organization with 4yr degree + 5 years of exp. for same/ similar position, there should not be any issue for the getting an EB2 approved. As far as my knowledge goes, the requirements are set forth in law - that is not something that USCIS can change over night.

True - it might become more difficult to get approval for such cases, but that does not mean that IT folks cannot qualify for EB2.

Just my 2cents.
