Default PDs

In months of June, Jul and Aug , many EADs & APs are up for renewal due to July07 fiasco. So by moving dates forward, USCIS can cash in lot of reveue as it has to issue only 1 yr EAD in that case. If the dates are not current, they will have to issue 2 yr EAD and although they dont mean to approve many cases, I tend to think they will keep moving dates forward.

As per March 2009 visa bulletin EB2-China is already 15 Feb 05.

If USCIS repeats last year's pattern of spill over from April then both EB2 China and India move together.
As they move China's dates they need to move India's dates(both share the spill over as retrogressed countries).

Keep guessing on EB2-China's forward movement and most likely would be the same for EB2-India

Cheers,
Srini

Default EB2 and EB3

I really think we are all split between EB2 and EB3. EB2 folks don't give a damn about EB3 dates.

Default New Bulliten

Look's like the DOS is trying to maintain a year difference in the priority dates for EB2-I and EB2-C.
My guess for the April 2009 Visa Bulliten is April 1st 2004 for EB2-I and April 1st 2005 for EB2-China.

Default Please help with points

All,

I am thinking of writing to the DHS Secretary about this never ending wait for AOS and about retrogression.
Could you all contribute with different points please?
Someone has to take initiative someday.

Thanks,

Looks like they doesn't want to move GC Dates. President has to give green signal to pass this. I don't know when will happen this.

Fellow IVians,

Let's not indulge in EB2 or EB3 bashing. We all are in the same boat. Our goal is to remove retrogression be it EB2 or EB3.

Thanks!

Why do you think there are not many cases in 2005?
