Default EB3 Row movement

Can any one explain to me why EB3 ROW does not move at all.
There cannot be that many 2002 cases left in that category??????
Just seems strange to me.

Default Its all a big mystery

Either it is all a big mystery or a conspiracy. I agree with you that there can't be so many people from EB3-ROW from 2002 still waiting for their GC . Same with India and China. They are still sitting at 1st May 2001. I wonder how many people filed in 2001 that even after 10 years USCIS is still processing their cases.

There is something going on behind the scenes and breaking ( or bending of the rules ). They could easily have prevented visa wastage all these years so the backlog could be reduced but do they ? Who's preventing them from using up all the visas and doing what is best for the applicants .

Almond, even i used to think "so close and yet so far". but now have understood, i was never close to begin with...
it is better to accept the reality than trying to live with fool's gold like i did for about 2-3 years...

kartik, I am amazed by your priority date. Have you done infopass to see what the hold up is? Open the dictionary and you'll see us in the definition of "badluck" lol

Hi,
Looking at the number of 485s pending for ROW EB3 with PD of years 2001 and 2002, I do not quite understand why the dates have not moved. We need to ask this question to someone. It does not make any sense.

Default who to ask

The question is who has the answer, other than the people at uscis that dont want us to know?

I dont understand any of the EB3 not moving it is the beginning of the fiscal year, they should be moving forward not be stuck....
Are we going to have another July 2007 fiasco?

Default DOS has the answer

Hi,
I think that DOS, the visa office has the answer. This is insane. According to the 485 report released by USCIS some time ago, there were approximately 4000 ROW EB3 pending cases up with PD of up to 6/2002. As such, the dates should have been moved in December and moved a lot. Yet, they did not move it. I think I am going to write up a letter to Mr. Opperheim, or whatever his name is and ask why he did not move the dates at all.

Hi,
I just asked my attorney if she had a direct contact with Mr. Opperheim, the person responsible for VB. If she does respond, I will provide the address / email here. I am writing to them. It does not make any sense. My opinion is that they are giving USCIS a December brake now. If the 485 report released by USCIS is true and reliable, the RoW dates for Dec should have been moved to mid or end of 2003 now.

Default response from DOS

Hi,
I emailed DOS yesterday and asked why EB3 ROW did not move. This morning I received a response:

Dear Mr. XXXXX:

The E3 cut-off date has not moved because USCIS has already requested nearly as many E3 numbers as may be allocated for the first quarter, and there are no unused E1 and E2 numbers to fall down to E3.
The data which CIS posted can be misleading because it was probably a month old when it was published, it does not take into account demand at our overseas posts, that being processed at CIS District Offices, etc. The INA imposes limits on the amount of visa numbers which may be used in each of the first three quarters, and without moving most of the Employment cut-off dates we are approaching the first quarter limit.
