Now, on Friday, April 20, 2007 (this past Friday at a panel where I was speaking in Washington, D.C.), he agreed that the EB2 and EB3 numbers may move forward at least during the summer so that immigrant visa numbers would not remain unused like last year. Then the numbers may again retrogress during the fall and go back further, so this would be a window of opportunity to file cases for those whose numbers become current.
So, basically for folks whose PD is 2006/07 - they will probably get their GCs' when their kids' start going to college - until then, just keep renewing your H-1Bs'.

Even for Indians with PD 2003, 2004.

If your kids are born in the US, they will be able to sponsor your GC through family based visa when they turn 21.

So, to get GC y'all should get married first, If you are married, you must have a baby. if you have a baby born in the U.S., then wait for 21 years. If you have babies not born in U.S., you must have another baby.

The date of birth of your baby born in the U.S. is your PD.

For that matter, marry any one who is not from the retrogressed countries and use cross-chargability. Works very well for EB2.

That's true. Then you end up standing in line to be processed and You end up in resting ... by the time you get your GC.

Damn! I can't refuse my son any cookies, in case he takes revenge later by not sponsoring my family based GC. I'll then be relegated to the backwaters of Canada, you know the thing that's up there in north somewhere.

A faster, but may not be easier strategy is to adopt a kid (below 18, I guess) who is an American citizen. Then when he/she turns 21, he/she can sponsor you.

Cheers,

My son is turning 2 tomorrow. He is already showing signs of terrible 2 on him such as sit-up and roll-over strike. I will have to tolerate all these and keep my fingers crossed in the hope that he can agree to sponsor me when he is 21.

Default USCIS not accountable

We lost 11,000 visas.Cool!.
Nobody is holding USCIS accountable.11,000 means approx 5200 people could have filed their 485's.
Of course, USCIS doesn't care about these 5200 people.I have met only one person who is waiting for his labor to come since 2001.Rest all are from 2004 onwards.
