PD may 2002...

Having been stuck at almost every stage in the process all i can say is that please dont hitch your wagon to CIR. CIR if it passes at all will create a huge backlog, increase the USCIS work load and increase processing delays. USCIS could not handle june 07 fiasco, or the 285k (or i ), imagine what will happen if 5 - 10 million start applying. it will be a nightmare from day one...we are a tiny speck in the CIR dust storm and we will just be blown away.

Getting something like recapture before CIR will help clear all EB backlogs (neither AILA nor compete america are interested in pushing the one thing that will help us all)
the CIR discussion will drag on for months, once the CIR passes there will be a 90 day time frame to implement the bill...we are looking at 2011 to see any signs of relief

I read an article from somewhere, and it was an interview with a USCIS high rank officer.
He implies that it is a rule that USCIS will keep EB2 and EB3 approval date about 2 years apart. This means a 2007 EB2 won't get his GC before a 2004 EB3.

The latest EB2 is 01/05, so EB3 will be around 01/03 once the window is reopened.

Just be patient.

Stop spreading Rumors. If there is such rule then why EB3-ROW and EB2-ROW have such a huge difference.

still waiting for GC. I hope atleast in 2010 will move beyond 2001 and 2002. Visa bulletin stuck at 2001 for a while. I believe there are very few applicants are waiting with PD less than Dec 2002.

This data will be of no use. It seems like a waste of time and energy. That time and energy can be better used for advocacy purposes. Such tracking only creates mass frenzy and trackers are guilty of creating this illusion. They serve no benefit other than wasting valuable time. If you can use that data for advocacy, only then it is of any use. Otherwise it only makes a good graph and chart and website gets many hits for advertising. Our members must see reason rather than blindly following the mass frenzy. We have an action item going on that can directly help everyone. Please look at the latest newsletter we sent yesterday.

Default EB3 India, PD: Dec 02

I have been a long time reader and I have contributed to almost all the fund-raising and flower campaigns (like most other users of the IV).

I have a stupid idea but thought I should bring it up and see what you all think. What if we organized a national-wide day of protest outside the USCIS offices and demand that they treat us like humans and not as faceless pieces of paper in their files. In particular, I feel they owe us complete details on where exactly our cases are in the queue, how many cases are there in front of us and where exactly the queue is being worked at. That way we can plan our lives and perhaps that means that some of us conclude that their turn won't come on a timely basis and leave this country. The present status-quo is unacceptable and the only way to change it is a) make it known and b) demand it to be changed.

Personally, I have been in this country for over ten years, contributing in my humble way to the US society at large and earning an honest living (like you all). I have never broken any laws; I don't even have a traffic violations. I don't even have the right to know where in the queue my case is? And I know 99.99% of you all are in this category too. Feel free to tell me that it is a stupid idea.
