Topic: June VB Predictions

Any idea on latest I-485 processing timeline, if it taking more than 3-4 months for pre adjudication.
then CO does not have any clue for next 3-4 months, what the demand is.
If the new application do not complete pre adjudication, even CO moves date to 2020, it wont help, he need to allocate spill over visas to EB1 & EB2 in this FY.
This is an interesting situation this year.

Topic: Good news for H4 Ead-Daca reopening

H4EAD case is already in court from last year, Court asked DHS status on it every 60 days.
Court given opportunity for both parties, to start trial, once DHS makes final decision.
So its all depends on when DHS completion of rule making, so the trial will start.

Topic: Pending Inventory for April 2018 has been released

This is may not be latest data, the final action date for EB2I is 22DEC08.
So we should not have many pending application prior to this date, but we could see in thousands pending in 2008.

One more interesting observation, the time of release this PI (April) usually they release a quarter late.
I mean January data in April and April data in july/Aug sometime.

This time, we got January data and April data in 1 month time frame.

May be some new hire in USCIS and messing up with these reports.

Topic: H1B Amendment Denied and refiled- Visiting India

If you travel outside , when extension/amendment is in progress with USCIS, your petition may be denied, as traveling outside USA is abandoning petition.

Be careful, did you check with attorney?, if not do it immediately.

This is a corner case, 99% cases will meet the criteria, unless USCIS change something.

Topic: List of L1A & L1B 2017 Employers



The client cost is same, the major portion will added to these outsourcing companies profits.
Ex:
A typical client pay $150K/yr for a job.





Ok let us break it down. $150 K/ year would roughly come to $75 an hour considering 2000 hours a year. Money paid to a consultant is an expense, where as salaries paid to the employees are overhead.

What ever the breakdown this big money is leaving USA, thats the main point.




A typical TCS/CTS/xxx company take 70K and add to their profit/balance sheet, this amount wont benefit US economy. The consultants from these companies pay taxes , SS etc, but this amount negligible compared to the over all amount leaving USA.



Amount leaving USA is not the right word. TCS USA operations shows it in their accounting.

What ever the accounting gimmick this money leaving US, it wont come to US anytime, these companies based out USA, they spend profit to grow their business outside USA.



If the same job is given to local to USA by Client, all 150K will be in US, be it SS, income taxes, local taxes or savings in banks or investment in stocks/401K.




The first part is an assumption. What if he/she files to Mexico/Thailand and spend there ? TCS/CTS offers 401 K as well.
It does not matter what country people they hire, the money leave out USA thats the point not India/mexico/etc.




US is not relying on this peanut amount of so called consultants SS . it may be 0.001% of over all SS amount.

If they tighten visa for these companies, there 7621 US genuine companies are looking to pay much higher for H1 visa holders.

These big consulting companies gaming system with their large pool of employees, by rigging (applying many applications) in visa lottery, than paying higher wages.

Hope they all go with pre registration and highest bid for same job.






If you tighten the visa's these jobs will not even exist. You can just see back in 2010-2012 when USCIS mandated employee-employer relationship and they took out the mandate quietly in 2012. They are bringing back the mandate this year. Wait and watch how it plays out.

Absolutely wrong, offshoring is another subject, its not stopping even they cancel total H1b program, the topic only H1B, even all outsourcing companies banned from H1b program there ~7000 genuine US companies, they want hire H1B people desperately with higher wages, these outsourcing companies rigging system.
employer employee relation memo still there all the time, please review latest memo and check with people applied EVC model, even with that we have ~230K applications filed for 65K h1b visas, majority by these WITCHES, where it stopped?

Topic: Immigration Reform is coming soon

Few major changes happened in last 12 yeard
2007 - uscis made accidentally current eb2 and eb3, so people can apply i-485.
2007/08 - removed labor substitution, so no old prority dates from employers.
2012 - they advanced only eb2i, few years till 2010 may, not current like in 2007. No change to eb3
2015/16 introduced filing chart, so wont rapid movement 2-3 years at a time , like in 2012.
If SO available, it will adavance 6-12 months max, unless we get huge spill over like 2009/10.
More eb1 usage, no spill over to eb2
More usage by eb3row, so no spill over.
Only hope for eb2i , economic recession, but one should have job.
Or any immigration bill, little chance this year or next, later we can forget.
I came to us in 2007, there was lot of hope to get gc sooner.
With pd 15-may-2010, missed filing 2012. There was hopedates move sep-2010 that time
Now with economy booming, low unemployment, no spill over, no immi bills.
Dark clouds for eb2i folks, new folks realize at their 10/15 th year.
Initially lot hope for suprises , iwish they are right, but reality sucks.

Topic: New H1B memo

+1

Don't see any material change, its old policy only.

USCIS is trying to show off , Trump BAHA (Buy American Hire American) policy.

Senate won't approve any legal immigration bills, Trump can't give EOs to Legal immigration.

Only option , they can be in news is with DHS/USCIS , reframing old rules here and there. They can't tweak too much as , they invite lawsuits.

More news less action.. for EB2I ..wait ..wait..wait 2018..2019..2020...xxxx :).

Looks like its paid news by IV.
First they tried with no extentions for people on I-140, that created enough news and discussions, even though nobody confirmed from USCIS.

All news discussions used same source mcclatchydc, what a Funny, even some law firms fell in trap with this news article.

Now IV is trying to get their agenda with same source. If it works fine, other wise , its laughing stock one more time.

Topic: ((gsiskind )) Not EB Greencard Friendly

Only benefit from EB is some DV visa may be allocated to EB & FB.
This benefit few, but not many. we have to see at least this happen or Dems will divert all these to other categories, so no help EB backlogs.


ELIMINATE LOTTERY AND REPURPOSE VISAS: The Visa Lottery selects individuals at random to come to the United States without consideration of skills, merit or public safety.

This program is riddled with fraud and abuse and does not serve the national interest.
Eliminate lottery and reallocate the visas to reduce the family-based “backlog” and high-skilled employment “backlog.”

Topic: Sen. Hatch’s I2 bill

The list is too big, in this current admin, even you get 5% of this bill is great.
They should have tried only country cap, instead of H1b and GC wishlist.
This is to show , we are trying for years, but Trump/Admin is not considering.
What world these guys are living, when even existing H1b are under big scrutiny to ask for additional H1bs :).

Topic: Charlie's Predictions for upcoming months

USCIS is the ultimate authority for accepting I-485 applications, they can ignore the Visa bulletin and they can issue their own.
Like filing chart , they never honored it.
For no wastage of EB3 visas, they should advance EB3 I dates to Jun-2008 atleast by march 2018, so people have time to file applications and USCIS has time to process them, before 9/2018. Otherwise the spill over visas will get wasted.

Topic: November 2015 Visa Bulletin

If the goal of Acceptance Date to move 6 -12 months, then we don't see movements like in 2007 and 2012 (3-4 years movement at at time), unless there is a huge spill over like in 2008-09.

People PD later May-2010 , may not get chance for AoS next 2-3 years.

Forget about people with PD later 2011 or later. This streamlining process hurting than helping EB2I.
