Default Too good to be true

In my view, it is too good to be true. But we have no way to challenge the numbers either. But it is 50% of the entire EB pending cases. Is this document authentic?? I don't see the logo on the letterhead??

This is the response letter from Senator's office. All personal info of the requester has been removed.

74K EB-3 applications and 70K EB-2 application you are saying it is too good to be true ?? With 3300 Green Card numbers in each category, you are looking at 22 Years for EB3 and about 17 years wait for EB-2. Also probaly you did not download the file, It is from Sen. John Kyle of AZ.

wonder if USCIS received $5K for providing this info
maybe requesting info thru Senators is the way to go, rather than FOIA.
Would have been nice if they gave break-up by Year, but anyways, some info is better than nothing. Thanks for posting this.

Default EB2 last year got 25K

EB2I last year got 25K visas. This year, I am thinking we will get double that. Because 1. There are not many ROW labor approvals (Thanks to Atlanta process center) 2. Name check backlog cleared.

Sorry I am not looking at EB3. No news is good for that.. Sorry..

Good news but sounds too good too be true. On an average a family takes away 2.5 visas and going by this only 50,000 applications for primary bene is pending.

So if they are giving this info to Senator for free why are they asking us to pay $5K for this; unless we requested different information.

Thank you for great effort. I hope you are not pulling a prank.

Who is the IV member that has asked you to post this info?

Please let us know so that we can all congratulate him.

Thanks for posting this. Can you post the original inquiry? Hopefully it will encourage others to send similar inquiries to their Congressperson.

Do you know if these are 485 or 140 applications? Would be nice to know these numbers by PD and how it compares to pending applications for ROW.

I am trying to get the original question info from him. Probably he will read the thread and answer it.
