I missed mine by 2 months. 6 days is brutal! Argh...that has to be frustrating. I saw close down the body shops so that the legit hardworking and deserving of us can see the priority date advance!

Oh man! That's brutal. I wonder how much of the I/C queue would be reduced if there was a STEM exemption. Also, has anyone started a movement to close down the body shops?

EB2 I/C retrogress while Infosys employees file in EB1. Next year EB1 will be retrogressed. I met another EB1 contractor (analyst) who is a "Global Program Manager" last week.

Lets focus on moving forward. There is no point in comparing such isolated cases. If you think there was a fraudulent application in his case, feel free to complain about him to that address.

Full disclosure: I dont work for Infosys or any other Indian/body shop. I now work for a large software maker that acquired my employer (a startup). In my current role, I deal with a lot of resources from Infosys (as well as other consulting firms)...and most of them do report to a Program Manager. Just about everyone of those Program Managers are based in India and dont travel to the US for client work. They travel to US probably once a year and usually its for indsutry-related conferences or certain training workshops. Only one of the Program Managers I've dealt with in the last year even had a green card and that was through marriage.

Default Every effort will be made to return the China and India Employment Second preference

Bulletin =>


Every effort will be made to return the China and India Employment Second preference cut-off date to the previously announced April date of May 1, 2010. This will be done as quickly as possible under the FY-2013 annual limits, which take effect October 1, 2012. It will not be possible to speculate on the cut-off date which may apply at that time until late summer.

USCIS has indicated that it will continue accepting China and India Employment Second preference I-485 filings based on the originally announced April cut-off date.

Can anyone explain why there are so many highly skilled professional applicants from India and China trying to become permanent residents of U.S. of A.? Both ranks high in the list of countries with the highest GDP. In case of the high number of Mexican applicants, they are under EB3 (most likely skilled and not professional) and Other Worker (unskilled workers).

Not a very educated comment. Their GDPs are the fastest growing, not highest. And income per capita is still well below the US.

May be you can tell me if this information in wikipedia is not accurate.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...es_by_GDP_(PPP)

Good that you mentioned income per capita, which is basically a mean value and does not reflect income distribution. It would make sense if lower income people were trying to migrate to US (like people from Mexico). It it is the opposite for China/India, it is highly skilled professional who are trying to migrate to US. There is no problem with that also, I am just curious why the number is so high compared with rest of the world.

Just looking at the GDP is misleading, moreover the list is skewed because of the PPP calculation. Besides, the reason for high skilled migration from India and China is not just because of GDP, there are plenty more factors e.g. disposable income List of countries by per capita personal income - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Quality of Life, Corruption, pollution and plenty other factors than just salary and GDP of the country.

Default EB2 dates in the coming bulletins

Hi Teddy and other experts,

What is the prediction on EB2 I dates in the coming bulletins for this year. Someone mentioned in the earlier posts that USCIS will try to make the dates back to May 2010. I hope this happens soon.

The root cause for this heavy demand from India/China is wastage of 500,000 visas by INS/USCIS.

Without that wastage, most applicants would have had their green cards by now.
