Default Time to think and act quickly !

This sucks big time !!! But guys this country has clearly shown many times that
if you want something you gotta fight for it !!

Lets fight.

Admin group please come up with a massive campaign direct mailing to President OBAMA
showing how law abiding tax paying residents like us are made to langish in this land
die to the whim and fancies of these USCIS BABUS !!

We have to get the top brass eyes opened - shwoing that we can really make a small difference in thses difficult times for this great country !!

Default Interesting information in Section E.

This bulletin has made history of sorts...for the first time it presents a number and breakdown of the visas backlogged in the FAMILY category for CONSULAR processing ONLY. The number is a staggering 2.7 million applications.

I hope that the next month's bulletin does something similar for the Employment based category too. It also indicates that the information is available and my guess is that this has been done partly in response to the DHS Secretary's letter to the DOS and USCIS requesting this information.

How can these guys come up with a bulletin in just 1 week through the month.

They do not seem to base the dates on the number of applications received in Feb.

I hope April bulletin moves forward just like last year. March completes 6 months of the fiscal year. Hopefully spill over starts in April.

Default This is so frustrating

There had been some activity on my application and those of my dependents. There was even an RFE which required us to prove lawful presence for one of us during a certain time. So with all that, I was hopeful that meant a big move was coming. But no, just another downpressing.

Lord Jesus, give us patience.
