Default All Visa Bulletin Predictions and discussions here

Chat User : Namaste, Murthyji. Will the priority date in the EB2
category move this year? If yes, when will it start moving, and how many
months do you anticipate it will move?

Attorney Murthy : The general rule is that there is no certainty or
predictability with respect to movement of priority dates. Mr. Charles
Oppenheim, with whom I shared a panel on Friday, April 20, 2007 at the AILA
Conference in Washington DC, said that, based on input from an attorney at
our law firm and his own investigation and research, he would likely move
the EB2 (and even EB3 dates for China and India) during this summer so that
we would not lose out on 11,000 immigrant visa numbers again this year.

Another interesting thing is how casually they are saying "...so that
we would not lose out on 11,000 immigrant visa numbers again this year". Do they have any idea how much people suffered for their inefficiencies in past years when they didn't consume yearly quotas.

Default Efficient USCIS

This is the efficient USCIS, they take 6 months to renew an EAD that lasts only 12 months. State DMVs are much better than USCIS.

Long term EB-2 India will retrogress badly - to roughly same level as EB3. I.e. sometime mid or late 2001. It will take 15 - 20 years before recovering to current level.

With so much going around in immigration...rumours are bound to take place..Nothing can be authenticated unless you hear from the source itself...

Thanks

here is the url of the Murthy chat transcript

http://www.murthy.com/chatlogs/ch042307_P.html

She refers to Mr.Oppenheim twice in the chat session and predicts PD movement ( even for EB3 India and China ). She usually doesn't say that if she is not sure about that. Let's hope that she is right.

Default Unused Visa numbers

Attorney Murthy : Mr. Oppenheim, the Chief of the Immigrant Visa Processing Control Unit at the U.S. Department of State Visa Office, had mentioned little or no movement in EB3 cases from India on February 28th at the AILA Washington, D.C. meeting. 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.
