People,

Please be aware of where you are posting. This is in the Backlog processing center forum. Mind you thousands of people are still stuck there for years and will not even have the opportunity to file for I-485 now. So how ever happy you are, please do not rub salt on their wounds.

Hmm... valid point... sorry...

I have only one question to backlog victims... My LC was in backlog - but I refiled it under PERM - got it. Why people don't do that? Saving money? I've heard people are "stuck" on I-140. I got mine in 3 weeks (including RFE). Why don't you do premium? Saving money? I'm not judging anybody and may not know the details, so people could have reasons... but still... - money is not a valid reason and "company doesn't want" - is not a valid reason either.

Exclamation Feel terrible for BEC victims, we can still help!

Bestia - not everyone has that option. I tried that too, but company wouldn't do that.

This is one of MANY issues that IV will still campaign for.

Please donate so we can carry on with rallies etc - it all costs money and we are low on funds!

Why is it that anytime someone stuck in BEC so much as expresses his/her frustration people jump and ask them to "enjoy the ride/shut-up" or just ask for the thread to be closed?

Do you have any idea how many years ppl have been stuck in BEC. I see a lot of ppl who have PD's in 2006-2007 complaining about retrogression and at the person asks BEC sufferers to shut up! There are thousands who have been stuck in BEC and their PD's range from 2001-2004.

Please have some compassion for ppl who are going thru a hard time.

Can you believe it, I never even knew I had that option until about a month ago! My lawyer never told me, he just said to wait, wait wait. I never knew. This thing took years off my life. And the stupidest of all was me, because I was in that victim mentality thinking that there was nothing to be done, as they were BACKlogged and thus you cannot jump or do anything about something when they are behind on paperwork.

Caught up in the frenzy, your ability to reason seems to have gone out of the window. While we understand your jubiliation, think for a moment what happens to people who can't file before 17th Aug. How long do they have to wait even if they get their LC on 18th Aug?

Let me quote my example. Here I am waiting with a PD of Dec 2002 with my LC application rotting in PBEC. I am on my 8th year of H1 and the meantime, my company was acquired by another one. New company refuses to convert the TR to RIR but files another PERM in Feb 2007. Since Atlanta PERM processing center has developed a backlog of its own, it took forever to process the pending applications. Finally it was certified last Friday and I may yet be able file for 485 before Aug 17. This was because I am fortunate enough to be working for a big company with considerate managers. But I would never lose sight of victims whose applications are still rotting in PBEC and who might have their hands tied due to their circumstances.

If you can't understand their problems, at least do not run salt in the wounds.

I know how you feel and you have my sympathies. I know someone else in this situation as well and she's pretty broken hearted by all this. How long have you been waiting?

Default I feel your pain

Guys,
I feel your pain. While I am happy for everyone (including myself) who will be able to file 485 now, I am sure IV will do its utmost to take this issue up now. We need more funds to carry on the process. I know that some core team members already had filed 485 but still they were waging the battle for us, the less fortunate ones. We will continue to fight for the ones stuck in BEC too.

To just give you a ray of hope, I think come October, the dates should still open around early 2004 so those people who are stuck in BEC should be able to file 485 very soon. Keeping fingers crossed for you and hoping for the best.
Cheers

I should say you are one depressing fellow, if you are eligible to apply. If you are held up at BEC then, I feel very sorry for you.
