    Why is everybody so happy? He has just briefly and curtly informed in the message that flowers will be forwarded. They won't be sitting on my desk and embarrasing me. There is no acknowledgement of the issue or any empathy or compassion with the sufferers. Now even the press coverage will make USCIS director look good. I don't see what's the positive development here.

    Well even if you use AP, you need a passport, dont you? And the passport must be with the Consulate pending stamping. So one way to get the passport back is to withdraw the visa application.

    A question though: is'nt it abandoning your H1B1 visa tenure if you enter on AP even with a valid H1B remaining?

    I understand your point. But this is exactly what anti-immigrants complain about H1Bs. ( depressing wages, outsourcing etc)

    It is interesting that we are using anti-immigrant's arguments to pin L1s.

    I would like to point out the differences between H1B and L1
    1. There is a yearly limit for H1B (65k + 20K) but L1s are limitless.
    2. A minimum wage need clause is there for H1B but minimum wage is not required to be paid for L1s. There are people in L1A visas who are supposed to be Senior Managers are sometimes paid less than 60K per annum by these offshore companies. As although they are brough in L1A visa they are in fact developers.
    3. Almost 99% of the L1s are from offshore companies whose main intention is to send the project/job to offshore, most of the H1Bs do not have this intention.
    4. L1s cannot change their employer, so they are bound to follow what their offshore employer ask them to do i.e try to take the job offshore, H1Bs can change employers, they will not try to send the job to offshore as they will then eventually have tomove back to offshore.

    So if we clearify these points even to the antis, I hope they will understand who is the real culprint for the employment scarcity. Each of these companies are moving thousands of jobs out of this country making the problems for Citizens/Green Card holders/H1Bs.

    99.99% of all the L1s are not used as they were intended when the law was signed.

    Always complain, even if there is no hard proof. The companies may not tell you on your face that they do not hire EADs. But the hiring manager or recruiter must be acting on a policy made elsewhere in the company, directed by some higher-up officials. It will be written somewhere. In that case, OSC can ask for archived e-mails, and phone conversations for a record of discrimination. If discrimination is proved, company is liable for fines, and the higher-up official is sacked. If there is no official communication, the company can claim that the hiring manager or recruiter is acting on his/her own and it is not the company policy. Then the hiring manager or recruiter is fired and the company pledges to enforce the rules strictly. Always a positive outcome for us.

    Complain to EEOC also in addition to OSC. Double the pressure on the erring company and you would see quick results.

    Called the DOS. Told them I need to travel to my home country and asked them if they can verify if my information is in PIMS. She asked if the H1-B is an extension case which it is. She said the extension cases are taking a bit longer than the new ones. That is quite surprising. Finally she looked in the database or whatever and said they do not have my extension information yet. All they have is the information from the expired petition. No timelines just asked me to call back in a week.:rolleyes:

    I need to know if anyone had any luck if their lawyers pursued this matter with the DOS.

    What is the phone number to call to verify the information?

    I saw this link Murthy's email too. The total pre-adjudicated cases in the chart is matching with the total in the document. Well now there are more un-answered questions:
    1. Does all other pending 485 include employment based ? If yes what % are employment based ? Obviously we do not have any country specific data on these.
    2. Is there any way to know whether individual case is pre-adjudicated or not ?
    USCIS has fooled us again. No good statistical analysis can be done on incomplete/inaccurate data. I am going from hopeful to hopeless again. I am EB2-I Feb 2006.
    Thanks a lot for staying on top of this and posting your analysis.

    I dont get this - the PDF clearly mentions that the table is for ALL PENDING EMPLOYMENT-BASED 485s. So that means: -
    1. It does not include any Family-based 485s.
    2. This is not a count of just pre-adjudicated cases - this is a count of ALL PENDING CASES.
    3. And since this is a count of ALL PENDING CASES, it also means that ALL DEPENDENT CASES are also included in this count - all DEPENDENTS HAVE TO FILE THEIR OWN 485s!

    Sometimes I just wonder, if most people here on this board have an illness or over-analyzing everything. It is so simple if you just read what is stated and take it at the face!

    I see the same. my pd is may 20.

    Did anyone see any Soft LUDs on their 485 or old EADs before their approvals/RFEs?

    My PD is June 7 2006, not current. Yesterday, I had a soft LUD on my 485 and my first EAD. These two haven't seen any activity since early 2009, and I'm wondering if this means anything or if I'm reading into this a little too much.

    take your i 485 application. There is a received date column and notice date column.
    Date received is the date they received your application,notice date is the date they entered your application was entered into their system.

    So, if someone with priority date of 08may2006 (eb2), but with a notice date of aug 30 2007 will get the green card earlier than someone with priority date of 20april2006 (eb2) with a notice date of sept 15.

    thank you

    Finally got the CPO emails/texts today morning for both me and my wife.

    Came to USA in 1996 on H1. Masters (F1) from 1999-2000.
    All GC applications in EB2. Nationality : India.
    Applied in Mid 2001 : company (think $15B!!!) went kaput.
    Applied in Mid 2003 : I quit in mid-2005 - while labor pending.
    Applied Nov 22, 2005 : Approved Aug 11, 2010.

    Labor applied via PERM - approved in about 4 months.
    I-140 applied soon after - approved in about 4 months.
    I-485 applied during the July-August 2007.
    Receipt Date: Aug 16, 2007
    Notice Date: Oct 1, 2007
    At NSC.

    Quit in mid-2008 with 485/EAD, sent AC21.
    Got RFE in Sep 2008 (missed the 2008 boat).
    485 LUD stuck at 10/29/2008 forever until today.

    Opened a SR on Aug 5th.
    Took an infopass on Aug 6th - all I could get was, "your application is with an
    Immigration Officer since Aug 2nd". Nothing else!
    Don't know if either had an effect.
    Didn't do anything beyond the above two.

    I think anything that's helpful for anyone based on dates/apps/process/procedures are all listed above. Now for a bit of something in my mind. No particular theme but general rambling....if you so indulge..please continue. Else Have a good day and happy life. And thanks IV.

    It has been a long journey for sure. A lot of my friends who came to
    USA in 1996 are now citizens. I have NO regrets at all. I took my own
    path. Sometimes I used to think that if I had done the GC process
    in 1998/1999 instead of quitting my full time job to do full time masters,
    I might've gotten GC sooner. OR what if I had stuck with the 2003 application,
    sure, it would've taken longer to get even the Labor cleared but I would
    have gotten GC in probably 2007 - and worst case 2008. And heck, I would
    have made an additional $150K (since the company got acquired by "as big
    as it gets" tech company). OR what if I had chosen a very safe choice out
    of masters [believe it or not, I got 12 offers back in 2000 - but then heck,
    every body else got 12 offers as well]. OH btw, the full time masters ended
    up costing me about $45K in credit card loans. So point in contemplating
    all the "coulda woulda shoulda"s in life.

    As Nike says: Just do it.

    I strongly believe it was because of the masters that I got the first 2000/2001 company, I got into the next job - and because of it to the next one and because
    of that to the current one - where I am extremely happy and think
    will over time come out very well off too.

    At all times, I never compromised on my job. Took the job which offered
    me the most challenge and allowed me to learn as much as possible while
    working the smartest folks around. That I think was a great benefit - all
    along - since that component of life (work) never bothered me. And was never
    afraid of taking (apparent) risks either. To me they were calculated risks.
    The 2002 company I joined, it was a small startup - I was employee number 20-something and was the only H1-B until we had about 150+ employees.
    When I quit it was 450+ folks and was about 750+ when it was acquired.
    The company I joined in 2008 (via AC21), was and still is a startup. When
    I joined we were 8 employees and still now, remain lean-and-mean but
    kicking some serious ass. (if I say so myself..pardon me). :)

    The biggest hiccup as I think of it now was that my wife was not able
    to work from 2003-2007. But the EAD in mid-2007 finally solved that
    problem. Oh, I never hesitated traveling either : travel to Africa (three
    countries) one year, and to Europe (three countries) one year and
    Asia (two countries other than India) in one year.
    Also purchased a home in 2009 (it was very tempting during the
    2004-2006 times...but waited out for good).

    So yeah...H1-B/EAD/AP are all handicaps - only if you convince yourself so.

    A couple of times I had contemplated Canadian PR or really
    moving there or to somewhere in Europe (and even Aus PR).
    But pursued nothing mostly because I was lazy.

    But all along my wife fully supported in everything I (we) did.
    Be it change of jobs, other big decisions..what not.
    So thankful to god for that.

    Just a bit to go back in the way back machine.
    Long ago, labor was the bottle-neck. Then 485, then something else.
    Things repeat - old is new, new is old...repeat.
    There were times when there was no online checking, no sms, no email notifications.
    Six year h1-cap was strongly enforced. no concurrent 140/485. No one year extension of h1. No 3 year extenstions of h1 after 140. No 2 year EADs. No AC21. No priority date porting. I can go on....but a lot of stuff happened...happens.

    If there is one thing I learned wrt immigration, it is do things ASAP. Never postpone anything at all. As much as possible get first in the queue.

    A general piece of advice: Never reject an option you don't have. [this is more to do with folks who say, "I am only in year 1 in h1..I don't know if I need gc..let me see after 2-3 years.." - guess what einstein, it is easy to give up your gc after you get it, then to get it when you desperately need it.]

    Good luck and all the best to those who are waiting.
    EB2-IC seems in pretty good shape as far as I can tell.
    EB3-folks need some serious legislative help - please consider contributing a fraction of what you send for your immigration-lawyers and get something done. support IV.

    And finally: Be Happy!

    My ND is also 1 oct and lying at NSC . Hopefully it will be my turn soon

    Thanks Guys, I am from India and I applied in EB2, I do not have to port since my dates are current but I still do not support this idea because I know how difficult it is for one to better his situation just because he is not having a GC. My LC was stuck in backlog centers when perm labor applications was being approved left, right and centre�

    Call the place where you've ordered flowers and ask for a refund if flowers are delivered elsewhere. It should be up to USCIS to recieve and then ship those flowers to the hospitals.

    Lost in all this is the fact that Punjabi wants to sell his house not because he cannot afford it anymore, but because he wants to move to a different city to a higher paying job and can't be bothered to take responsibility for his failed real estate venture. He could have done the ethical thing and stayed in his present job and paid off his loan but he is choosing not to. And who does he blame for his situation? The concept of the "American dream". So the fact that he wants to shirk his responsibilities in favor of foisting his own debt onto the rest of the country isn't his own fault, it's the "American Dream" that's making him do this. It's not exigent financial circumstances that are causing him to foreclose, it is greed and shortsightedness (colloquially known as "The American Dream"). Greed and shortsightedness already caused him to go 20K under the water. And they will now make him screw up his own credit history. If someone cannot learn from one mistake, I say let him keep making mistakes. He will soon find out how difficult life in the US can be if you don't have a good credit history. As for the burden on us taxpayers, hey, we've been spending 10 billion a week for the past 5 years dropping bombs on people, what's a mere 20K?

    Something tells me that it is not 20k. It would be 100K if an actual sales is attempted. Still much much lower than 10 billion a month:)

    Just a quick question for current Vonage users.
    Currently I use Phone Power (VOIP, almost same as Vonage). They give me one nice feature called Remote Click 2 call. What it does is, if I am in office (where there is no long distance calling allowed), I login into my account and click on Remote Click2Call. This asks me to enter the number where I am at, and the destination number. So I get a call at my office phone and it connects me to the destination number. And there is no charge for this call.
    Does Vonage offer this kind of feature? and can we make calls to India (under their India unlimited plan) using this feature?


    Yes vonage has it.
    Vonage - Standard Features - Click-2-Call (
    It should work for india call too.

    worst case

    I might be the worst case so far in PIMS verification delay. I attended the interview on Dec 17th at Chennai and still have not received my passport. They asked to send the original I-797 on Jan 03. I sent it on Jan 04 and after that there is no response. It is very very aggravating.

    My PD is July end 2001. I am not current though I wish :)

    I will request you/attorney write to USCIS PO Box 82521 and attach the copy of delivery proof and RN to correct the error. Atleast no harm in trying.

    If your country is retro then RD don't mean much. They will arrange the file in "visa hold self" sorted by PD. But any time DOL/USCIS make India again "C" then RD matters.

    What's your ND on RN?


    Good to hear that USCIS did something right for someone. Atleast they recognised your Receipt date as July 2.

    On my case they moved my file from NSC to TSC on 4 August and they used that date on my notice date as recp. date.. instead of 2 July.
    I didnt get any response from my attorney yet.. but Shd I worry about getting my recp. dates corrected to 2 July.. I have PD of July 2003 EB3-India.
    BTW I thought you are current with PD of 2001. Isnt it?

    Pls. correct me if I am wrong. txs

    Why they need name check when they have finger print? Name can be change any time where as finger print cant be.

    Not only that. but the law and regulations does not require name check for I-485! Only for naturalization. What the USCIS and FBI doing is illegal. Sue them, that's the only way they will understand that they are wrong.
    The decision to check reference files for FBI name check was made in December 2002 because N-400 was approved for a Hamaz member. The person's name did not have a hit in main files, but did have a hit in reference files. That's why the USCIS requested FBI to check reference files for naturalization applicants. FBI however decided to check refernce files for ALL requests. By law, background criminal investigation is required only for naturalization and asylum!

    last i checked - there are plenty of flights between JFK/Newark and all major cities including Boston.

    also - all airlines work on a hub and spoke arrangement


    One thing to realise is that direct point to point flights will take a while, and even then there is no guarantee that you will want to fly it because it may not be economical or convienient.

    And the absence of point-to-point flights has more to do with the airlines following a hub and spoke model than with any government restrictions. Point to point flights were identified as a core part of Boeing's product strategy only recently. The situation should improve over the next few years as airlines take delivery of new models, but until then we are stuck with the hub and spoke arrangement.

    We were very satisified with Continental even though we flew Seattle->Newark->Mumbai.
