Default Current PERM Caseload and Processing Times : SAD news for those who filed after june

DOL is planning to change the LAbor certification process , the details are put up on the my lawfirm website , I really got scared after reading that. Since it is copy right protected i can not post the content. But i cAN say DOL is planning to reject most of the cases filed after June 2008 and ask all copanies to re-start fresh process under the supervision of DOL, the process includes DOL taking the job of placing the job ads and forwarding the resumes to the employer and asking them interview and send report , the description goes on like this

my friend, techbuzz

strict adherance to rules for applying a GC is something every company will provide anyway (atleast big american companies). DOL is stating to micro-manage some of the procedures.. we know how quick they work.. so, this only means more and more delays.. nothing like "reject most cases and require them to re-submit" etc.. anyway, here is a link from fragomen - the information is copyright but that is accessible to everyone with internet access.. fragomen.com > Resources > US Immigration Headlines > 02/09/2009 - PERM Adjudications Slowed Markedly in Late 2008, January 2009

FAQs on supervised recruiting, looks like they will randomly select new PERMs and then host it for supervised recruiting.........

The BEC project is complete and so US Govt needs to find alternate employment for them.
Thats why more and more PERM are being audited to provide jobs for the ex-BEC employees. Thats the real reason.

Had this been done long time ago, there wouldn't have been any backlog. This would have plugged all the body shoppers.

Default Awesome!!

I can see the future here..

2009: USCIS/DOS forwards resumes to employer and get interview reports

2011: USCIS/DOS runs interviews and selects candiates for employers

2013: USCIS/DOS will keep the resources and employers can get them on hourly rates.

2015: USCIS/DOS runs all businesses and employers close their companies

For sure.

There are a lot of guys who are from those blood sucking Desi body shoppers companies.

These bloody body shoppers have screwed up the entire immigration system.

The entire H1B system has been screwed up by them.

I hope USCIS weeds out all those cheaters.

Default so much contempt

2008FebEb2

I see you came to US in Aug 2000 for MS. I came at the same time. since you have a PD of EB2 - Feb 08, my guess is, you have waited in your full time job (non-IT) to become lead engg (5+ yrs) before getting in to EB2. same here (difference is my PD will be somewhere March-May 2009-EB2).

deep down, people who came after me are infront of me in GC line simply because they had that opportunity and I didn't. Thats it. Period.

My anger is only on those who illegally got infront of me, like buying labors. thats only a few. rest of them used legal loopholes like EB porting, starting their GC within a month with desi employers, 5+ years experience without any etc. if I can be blunt, most IVans on an EAD (GC far away) are enjoying its benefits because of a legal mistake. normally, you can only get EAD some months before your GC.

if I had any of these legal loophole chances - I would have taken that loophole to be in the line. comeon - are you saying you would have given up on an opportunity of Labor substitution with earlier PD if your American company had given you a chance? its legal untill some abused it so much - so, I can't be angry with the rest of the world who just jumped on opportunities and some who came to US in 2003 even got their GCs..

bottomline - I still am mad with those labor buying fakest resume EB2s. but nooo use with spending time with contempt. I personally know alot of friends in my time whose ONLY option is a desi emplyer as H1Bs are over on Week ONE. if not for desi shoppers, indian companies would have taken the H1Bs.. anyway, its a loss for students here before the 20K quota came along..

It is a fact that lot of these so called body shoppers have created a bigtime mess here.
One of my friends has put a lot of fake things and got his GC.

All I am saying is that it is about time USCIS acts and weeds out all those body shoppers(no disrespect to genuine ones).

Also, I've been working as a full time employee since 2003 in IT field. I have my MS in Computer Science. In my first job, i didnot file for GC as i didnot had any prior experience and the attorney said that there would be some queries. So i changed my job to a new company after working for 4yrs in my first job and then field for GC under EB-2.

But i know some folks who came in 2005 and bought pre-approved labors. They all have GC's now.
It is tough to accept these facts sometimes. But hey, a sound 8hr sleep tonight should clearup my mind.
There is a day after every night.

Still, all of a sudden, there are a lot of threads coming to the same issue - uproot evil body shoppers, expose fake H1B etc etc.. guess its frustrations of so many gushing out all at once on wrongdoers.. my fear is being stereotyped, we all know immigrants generally being read as "illegal" in general public, now some fake H1Bs will be read as Fake H1Bs in general..

why did you allowed himto do that? you could have stoped him?
Could have complained about his employer to law enforcement?
But you did not since he is your friend.

My friend told me about his deeds after he got his GC.

Well, he is not my best friend. So he didnot tell me anything until he got his GC.
