Question if the US is hit with a recession in 2008, will the visa bulletin dates jump faster?

if the US is hit with a recession in 2008, will the visa bulletin dates jump faster or slower?

What has recession got to do with visa bulletin ? Visa bulletin depends on the visa numbers available per country and the demand for visas in a specific timeframe.

If that happens then they will accept GNIIT degree holders in EB-1 category.

US employment based immigation system, unlike that of other countries such as Canada and Australia, is based on market demand. If recession hits, there will be a lot of layoffs, especially in the financial sectors. A lot of outsourcing will happen to cut costs, which will increase the demand in work force in India and China. We can expect a lot of people to return home. This will free up visa numbers and the result will be - faster GC.

But, at that time, getting GC will not be any sweeter than returning home.

People...please contradict/support/offer alternate opinions.

How would USCIS know that someone has abandoned his GC and left the country for good....They would only know about it if an RFE is issued or an interview is scheduled (a very small percentage of cases) or if the employer notifies them (very rare)....Since there are already thousands of applications in the 485 queue, I dont see any significant impact on "visa numbers freeing up"......

back in 2001, I know that Sun Microsystems permanent employment visa was getting rejected because they asked the company why they are filing for foreigners when many American programmers have been laid off.

Simple ethics and logic tells us that EB1 is for most skilled person but many "EB0 skilled ones" - find the way to make B.Com graduate to file under EB1 and have approvals.... I have seen Higher Secondary failed guys having Green Cards way before us, yes under EB category...You ask quetsion how the hell that guy got H1 in first place? So please do not open the door of this discussion otherwise we will see hundreds of frustrating stories filing up this thread in a day.

Default Blue Card

When Europe officially starts its' Blue Card program, lots of people who have been waiting for their PR under EB category for years probably will leave the U.S.

Faster green card? May be! But the question would be, how many would stay here with uncertainity or feel it's better to move into Europe.

Uncertainity is one major factor but honestly answer the following questions:
A. Are you ready to settle down with lesser remuneration?
B. Are you ready to live in place where there is lesser security? [Ppl don't jump with your guns. I was reading today's news about riots in northern part of Paris]
C. Are you ready to "sacrifice" your spot in long queue of GC for Blue Card?
If answer is "Yes" for all three then you are likely to apply for Blue Card.
Let's keep this a healthy and open discussion.

People stand in line in the GC queue in the US because there are lots of jobs and opportunities here. If the job scene in Europe is anything like Canada, then people will get a blue-card, but still wait for US GC. Lots of IV members have canadian PR or are in the queue; but continue to wait in the US for US-GC.
Europe also has potential language problems for us, unlike Canada or Australia.

So unless the opportunities in those countries become as good as they are in the US, no-one is going to leave the GC queue, irrespective of PD.

Qualification, Talent and Success are not synonymous. Gates and Dells of America knows it better. We in India put way more emphasis on qualification and equate it with Success.
