    Seems like there are more such cases - there is a news item on this topic yesterday on www.immigration-law.com with the title "10/23/2008: Increasing Customer Reports of Denial of AC-21 Ported I-485 Applications Without NOID by USCIS Upon Petitioner's Withdrawal of Approved I-140 Petitions"

    Seems like they too dont know whether its related to untrained USCIS staff's mistake or some other issue.

    I have been reading your suggestions about visiting DC and/or organizing flower campaign. They are good suggestions and I really liked the flower campaign when it was first done in 2007. But I think, repeating it and sending bunches of flowers to the offices of senators would not influence them as much.

    Instead I think, if we can all send some donations to a charity which each of these senators is associated to, it would help the charities and might also influence the senators/congressman more. This will also serve as a reminder about the positive contributions of the immigrant community to this country.

    I would welcome suggestions from other experienced members on how this can be implemented. But my initial thoughts are, we identify the senators/congressman(woman) we want to contact, select a local charity, or a charity to which these people are associated with, and send in checks of 5 or 10 dollars per person to each of these charities.
    Even if each of us is willing to contribute $100, we might be able to reach 10-20 of these lawmakers. And there is nothing we are losing here even if the lawmaker turns a blind eye to our cause. The money will be used for charity and so it serves some purpose.

    And along with the donations, we can request them to support the Visa Recapture Bill, which will help all of us.

    And my EB2 friends, we need your help also, as you never know how these dates can change in the coming months. Nothing is done and over untill you get the physical card. Dont mean to dampen your spirits, but you and I know what the truth is.

    Let me know if there are any takers for this.

    I got my loan financed from BOA. I was putting 25% down on 550K home. They did not ask me even a single proof of my status before approving the loan . I am on EAD. Just a thought. May be you can increase the amount you are putting out of your pocket and may be they will approve. Again, just check this with them

    When did you close the loan? BOA says there lending policy changed wef 05/28/2010.

    The idea is very brillinat and this actually benefits the current IV core too.
    Usually, people get tired of leading a non-profit, too much of ones personal resources go into it.
    A new leadership will bring new energy in form of people getting a title and make them more accountable to needs.
    Every current commitee(current IV core) actually is the backbone of a non-profit, cos they carry lots of assets, in terms of connections they have developed, money they have accumulated, goals that they have set, etc...
    So the current IV core can support the new commitee and take their help to take the organisation forward.
    And as I previously mentioned, the organisation does not or should not cease to exits once our goals are met, they should then be lead by other non-immigrants who will have a whole different set of issues.

    usually, a non-profits exec committee is elected by its members.
    for eg. the 2009 members (paid), can vote for the IV president and the committe.

    it doesnt make sense for evey EB immigant to go and start a new non-for-profit.

    and i am NOT the real Lou Dobbs. But in all seriousness guy, I think we really have to wake up. We are illegal immigrants....
    And we are not asking for Amnesty...

    There is no deying the fact that this country has benefited from us much than us. How about some moral abligation and sense of fairness from this great country???

    Speak for yourself, I'm totally legal

    yes...it would have been nice if we got the stimulus pakage with this situation of spouse on H4/ITIN. I called my congresswomen and wrote a letter to IL Senator(obama) to let her/him know this issue. I dont expect any action, but since they are aware of this situation, may be next time when they give this pakage( may be 10 years from now) they will include H4's

    Many H1s like me have their non-working spouses on H4 visa who are not given SSNs. Do we not pay taxes ? Do we not pay Social security ? We do, and therefore we should also be eligible for the Stimulus package. Indeed my son is autistic and disabled but we are not eligible for any kind of aid but we pay tons of taxes and social security. It is highly non-justified think. I know people will argue a lot if it is compared to slavery. But it is a "modern form of slavery". Yes, we are in this country with our own will but that is what they are making use of.

    absolutely, i need to see microsoft projects to keep track of the lobbying project. why can't the current folks show progress as per the microsoft projects plan. after the end of time and budget, we need to see the result in the form of our GC. that's how we do all our projects at work. why is this lobbying thing any different.

    if i can summarize bawa's point, we need to cut all ties with democrats, trash obama repeatedly unless we are sure that we have aligned with sarah palin and we are sure that we have been sidelined for next 8 years. wonderful strategy to ensure 100% failure, i luv it, the change we can believe in.

    Fix your profile before you expect people to read sarcasm.

    For FY2006 (Oct 1st, 2005 - Sep 30, 2006) a total of 30,512 Schedule "A" visas were used.


    Schedule "A" was current from June 1, 2005 till October 31, 2006
    According to DHS statistics 5,125 schedule "A" visas were used in FY2005 (June 1st, 2005 - Sep 30, 2006).


    So, from June 1, 2005 till September 30, 2006 only 36,367 Schedule "A" visas were used.

    Now if 50,000 were available under schedule "A" what happen to 50,000-36,367=14,363 visas? I doubt very much that so many petitions were filed in October 2006 - the last month when this category was current and for new applicants the only option was AOS, even considering the fact that consulates conducted interviews in October, 2006 and November, 2006 they could not use 14,363 visas! Especially considering the fact that not all applications got approved (because of the Visacreen, etc).

    Fellow Sufferers,;)

    For NON-RIR applicants, is the backlog center requiring the old advertisement process after the 45 day letter.

    We had received the 45 day letter six months ago and there has been no communication from them since that time. (Seperate application PD May-03)

    (Fellow travellers am I seeing an Oasis or is it a mirage.)

    I welcome your stickiness. This idea is not new to the forum. Go and search the threads. We have an active agenda of sending the faxes, writing LTEs, follwoing up senators and their offices after discussions, writing to news anchors, talking heads etc.


    Good thing you are doing and not talking, but lot of members are giving good suggestions, like contacting Professors who attended the Hearing this morning in the judiciary commitee meetings. Isnt that a new idea that was brought about only today...

    We need more ideas and more action as we go along.

    ...not people running around with sticks trying to exert power or whatever they think they are doing..I mean grow up man..learn to deal with people

    Oh. Good to know that it takes only 2 months.
    Thanks for sharing the info.

    Gosh.... Why people are giving Red to this poster. He is just sharing the info.

    for some it is money, for others it is about taking care of parents etc.

    for me it is all about where I would like to live, grow and bring up my child. to me the answer is very clear. while this country is not perfect, no country on this planet is. if a human makes an objective list based on quantifiable pros and cons, the decision is very easy to make.

    as for stuff like "I miss my parents" that is not quantifiable and should never figure in the discussion. what is the guarantee that you can return to your home country and live in the same city as you parents do? what happens if your kids don't want the grandparents to interfere in their lives? what happens if you cannot take constant interference from friends and extended family?

    my reasons may come across as cold and calculating. however, it is an inhospitable world we live in and it is up to us to provide the best possible cocoon for our immediate family and that is exactly what I intend to do.
