Default Good News ! Small ray of hope visa recapture

Hi Friends,

I read this on Ron Gotchers forum
Don't hold your breath, but there is a very narrow window of opportunity coming up


Don't hold your breath, but there is a very narrow window of opportunity coming up - Immigration Information Discussion Forum

---------
Two EB categories are set to expire at the end of this month: certain EB4 religious workers and the EB5 pilot program. Unless extended by Congress, these categories will go away on October 1st.

It is highly likely that Congress will extend them, as it has done in the past. This means that a small immigration bill, or an amendment to an existing bill will be used as a vehicle to extend these provisions. I've heard that an effort is going to be made to get visa recapture included in that legislation. Don't hold your breath waiting, but it is a possibility.



---------

Which means there is some small hope.

Can the IV Core look at this and then we all can contribute for this drive. (instead of fighting among ourselves, let us find a solution for all).

Don't believe in news from Ron Gotcher or OH site. They are just selling hopes and nothing else. If you follow his predictions in last few months nothing had materialized, except we wasting space on IV with huge discussions.

Just a thought.

Brother on Ron site the replies got posted today sep 14 2009 at 1 PM Ron himself has posted, this could be old stuff but it is getting started newly again.........

Why should we miss this window of opportunity, you never know what happens with USCIS.

Should we not discuss about what we should be doing......

Ron is good at law but not good for prediction.. Even no one can predict unless USCIS gives out all pending application information. I bet Visa Officer must have hard time to predict date and consume all visas by year end.

Well... I don't see any movement on either camp .. ( Pro or Anti ) regarding this recapture . Also he doesn't have post link to any material online.

Please read page 2 of his post where he exactly states what amendment it is...

-----------

Call both your Senators and your Congressman. Ask your friends to call.To see what such an amendment might look like, refer to Section 3 of last session's S.2839:
Quote:
(b) Recapture of Unused Employment-Based Numbers- Subsection (d) of section 106 of the American Competitiveness in the Twenty-first Century Act of 2000 (Public Law 106-313; 8 U.S.C. 1153 note) is amended--

(1) in paragraph (1)--

(A) by inserting `1994, 1996, 1997, 1998,' after `available in fiscal year';

(B) by striking `or 2004' and inserting `2004, or 2006'; and

(C) by striking `be available' and all that follows and inserting the following: `be available only to--

`(A) employment-based immigrants under paragraph (1), (2), (3)(A)(i), or (3)(A)(ii) of section 203(b) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1153(b)) and spouses and children accompanying or following to join such immigrants under section 203(d) of such Act (8 U.S.C. 1153(d)); and

`(B) immigrant workers who had petitions approved based on Schedule A, Group I under section 656.5 of title 20, Code of Federal Regulations, as promulgated by the Secretary of Labor, and spouses and children accompanying or following to join such immigrants under section 203(d) of such Act (8 U.S.C. 1153(d)).';

Default H.R 5882 visa recapture bill

HR 5882 was killed last year and at the same time they passed the Bill for additional nutrients for Horses.
There is clear lobby from Hispanic Caucus against anything for Legals.

I can bet this amendment will not go forward!!

Default It's different

It might have got killed under H.R.5882 bill and the Horse/durby thing might have passed, but it is a little different this time, as it is being appended to the EB categories 4 and 5. Who wants to scrap the investor's program who is willing to invest money and create employment opportunities in this country.

What is important here is that the visa recapture is added to the provisional bill. If it gets into the bill - chances of it getting passed is more.

maybe they can also add the provision to do away with the per country limits.
in this country where everything is based on equality, we need to stress on them to remove this last position.

Default Here we go again.....

In the past couple of years, there is always some news or the other to keep the hopes of the Legal immigrants, but at the end all they get is Dis-appointment, esp., whenever a bill is being discussed, we as a community expose it too much by discussing it in the forums....which ultimately feeds as inputs to the anti-immi groups.

I am not sure or for that matter even Ron G. is not sure about the information he has provided, Atleast for once lets try as a community not to discuss anything on the visa recapture. If the bill is not included as discussed atleast you will not be too much dis-appointed.

I hope the OP takes this message in a positive sense and delete this thread, if he could.

Yeah, I still remember those golden days... sitting in front of TV watching CSPAN, with laptop on my side checking IV for updates, being so patient when the law makers took several breaks, and finally got mad when they pass the horse bill and left ours in dead waters.

Are they talking about that bill? What is going to be in front of us this time? A pig or a monkey?
