Teddy,

That was some analysis. So going by your logic, do you expect a severe retrogression in October? I realize it is a guess work, but I would imagine your guess to be far better than mine I know I have to stay calm and just hope for the best, but I am quite anxious, as I am sure the rest of GC-brethren are facing.

Any pointers on your take on retrogression is appreciated,

TIA,

thanks for this writeup.. I was going thru the same questions as my PD Apr/2003 will be current on Sep 01. I've decided that staying put and waiting was the best approach than opening infopass or contacting local senators.

Yes I agree, there is struggle, but this immigration system is still the best in the world and we should all try and work together to make it better by suggesting to USCIS. Which other country process more than 2 million different kind of immigration applications in a year and have so much complexity of categories, quotas and steps? To suggest one must be personally coming to advocacy days in Washington DC and also be contributing regularly to support those who are trying within their limited time to advocate for positive changes. We have done many meetings in the past during advocacy days and even outside advocacy days. Many regular members have gone with us in these meetings. But they are not that many when compared to other advocacy groups.

I say this everytime there is a big movement of dates:

Being current in September does not mean every EB3India that is current will get greencard. However many someone raises SR, calls, Congress inquiry etc. It might in fact delay if files are put in a different queue to answer. If quota is over in the first couple of weeks, there will not be any approvals. Approvals are never in strict FIFO order so all tracking is a waste of time. People who are unaware of the process and workings panic and waste time on forums discussing tracking, soft LUDs and approvals by date. I have personally gone deep into this and know that it does not help. Recently I saw a post on a site claiming to be an expert and telling that he spoke to an officer by calling USCIS and this officer was handling file. You will never be able to speak with the officer L1, L2 ... handling files. These people are customer server agents and they have limited view on the entire details of the case. To me service requests and Congress requests are also the same. It is all going into a pool of case status inquiries. Imagine thousands of such requests from 435 Congressmen+ 100 Senator offices + thousands of service requests coming every month. Do you really think there will be any preferential treatment to these? Calling a Congressman does not mean the case will be approved out of turn. It will be illegal and USCIS will never do it. So I suggest not to panic and keep expectations reasonable for approvals. Be patient and hope for the best in September.

Default Card in Production

Thanks.

GC Application/s history:
-----------------------
OLD APPLICATION

Employer: A
Category: EB3-RIR Conversion-India
Priority Date: 07/2003
Labor approved
I-140 approved
I-140 approval date: 06/2007
AP and EAD approved
485 receipt date: 07/1*/2007

NEW APPLICATION

Employer: B (Intended to work for but NEVER WORKED FOR)
Category: EB2-India
Priority Date: 06/2006
PERM LABOR approved
I-140 approved
I-140 approval date:08/2006
No AP/EAD/485 applied under this application

Interfiled both of above in 2010 end.

Notes: (1) Currently working for company C on EAD which never was and is associated with my GC struggle directly.(2) "A" number on both I-140 are similar and different from "A" number
on 485 file.
(3) Occupation codes for both category are "Close" and matches the
job profile with current employment on EAD


(4) For curent RFE response (08/2013 RFE), obvioulsy I ahve provided employment letter from company C for which I am working now.

Thanks.

Congrats! Very happy for you. You might remember me from back in 2007 when we were tracking our RIR conversions at the Philly Backlog Elimination Center. Seems like a long time ago. Glad to see you complete your journey as well. I completed mine in Feb 2012 with EB2 conversion.
