The way I look at it, as much as we moan and gnash our teeth, we will never go back home. So instead of getting frustrated over this, it is better to spend time in whatever advocacy we can do and go about our lives.

For all our complaining, short of actually packing our bags (which we'll never never do), it is just a waste of time. Just my 2 cents.

BTW, for what it's worth, I believe there will be rapid movements for EB2-I in the second quarter of FY2012 (ie, Jan-Mar 2012). I've waited 11 years, I can afford another few more months.

For the records; I don't harbor any ill towards those who are porting. If they have the credentials then they have the right to do so, just like any other category.

Curtain down for the year... Join hands with IV to make administrative changes happen. One more year of my life will be wasted doing what I've been doing for the last five years...The value of my business education loses it's sheen every day and what little entrepreneurial spirit I have will die in the next year or so...

God Bless America and its immigration policy...

Default The analysts are right again

I always look forward to the summer like everyone, for many reasons!
But this summer has not been kind to most of us.....

horrible heat waves, deeply polarizing debt debates, S&P down grade, gas prices, visa bulletins, unemployment rates, millions of africans in famine and the list goes on.......

What can I say,

we didn't start the fire, it was always burning..........

Looking forward to the next summer.....

Default FY-2011 EB2I moved by 342 days and EB3I moved by 174 days

Fiscal Year 2011
EB2I moved by 342 days
EB3I moved by 174 days
-------------------------------------------
Fiscal Year 2010
EB2I moved by 471 days
EB3I moved by 261 days


2011 is not so good compared to 2010 in terms of movement.
