Topic: H4 EAD- Save Jobs Lawsuit UPDATES


There are several kind of people who hate H4EAD that I have come across on these forums. Following are the types:

1) Type 1: Jealous people - They are just jealous that some families have the ability to earn double income while they cannot because of various reasons. The reason can be that spouse is not qualified to earn enough to warrant a 9 to 5 job and ignore household. Or it is simply spouse's decision to contribute to household than work which is also a respectable decision because caring for household is no joke. But their husbands are still jealous of double income.

2) Type 2: male supremacist who find it hard to digest that they will have to help their wife in doing dishes and cooking.

3) Type 3: Although a subset of Type 1, these type of people are GC holders who think that new generation should go through same struggles and nothing should come easy to them. They believe others should suffer equal or more to attain the same status in life as they have. If this means wives not working then so be it. These people are better suited for Indian government jobs but somehow they landed here in USA. They also believe that God is more happy if you torture yourself to please Him

4) Type 4: Low skilled - These people are on borrowed time in USA. They hate H4EAD because they think that H4EAD is a danger to them. Even though they think they are high skilled but make a poor argument that proves otherwise. All these people will be gone when H1B screws tighten






Well said.

Topic: Zuckerberg, Bill Gates for H4 EAD

Spouses of ROW country people and L1, L2 people already has GCs or EADs. They also earn 2 salaries. By your logic they are being greedy. A VP making a million dollars per year is also greedy by your logic.

I have seen some of these women pass FANG company interviews. All these companies pay more than 150K per employee. Kudos to them. They are not being greedy. They are hardworking and getting rewarded. Lets appreciate their success instead of insulting them.

If you truly scared of competition from H4 sit at home moms who spent last decade raising kids and watching soap operas then my recommendation is upgrade your skills.

Topic: The true reason for 70 years GC wait

Much worse.
From May 2010 to Jan 2011 there are enough labor certifications that should take another 5-10 years to clear. EB3 to EB2 porting will make these numbers worse. So its not marketing campaign its reality, which people refuse to believe.

People wont loose their place in line, so some people are waiting from India.

Topic: All the queries to IV (Immigration Voice)

RHC is definitely misrepresenting the content. The rally will be helpful for ITServe. IV also failed for 10+ years except collecting donations. They keep playing blame game for last 10 years.Both the organizations are lead by people who are not in the backlog.

But I am hopeful about the work other organizations are doing. Don’t sit idle. Please do whatever makes sense for you. Meeting a representative and explaining why clearing backlog benefits America is the easiest and impactful thing to do.

So sad And depressing to know that they were once legal immigrants. Ray of hope is our folks are getting active and fighting back. I attended several key meetings in the last month where teenage h4 kids are active. Please do your part.

Topic: Is it legal to reject H4 EAD candidate?

An employer cannot discriminate you because of EAD. It is illegal unless the job is specifically advertised saying "Citizenship" or "GC" required. This is US law.

https://www.uscis.gov/i-9-central/employee-right...

My advise, go to school, get some skills, training and experience (Voluntary work for some non profit). This could take up to few years of planning, effort and money.

Topic: Future of EB2 India or My Life

The numbers are not too far off. You will be a 401K millioniare faster than you think but not as fast it shows there.
The problem is if you are maxing out 401K and single income then you are missing on other opportunities. My advice is balance it out.

If you are dual income then max out atleast one 401K and get atleast company match for the other. Also invest in 529 and real estate.
Single income then divide money for kids education in 529, real estate US/India and 401K.

If you are in 20s then you may not want play safe and invest more into real estate. Dont forget to enjoy life.

Topic: Why is SIIA screwing HR 392 bill?

"Some idiots detailed the bill in 2012 and they have successfully done it again now." How? Explain please.

I understand donations is driving them to say bad things about other organizations. I would love to get educated and proven wrong.

No. It is 180 days not 6 months.

You can try to expedite it though.

I am in similar situation.

Topic: I-140 EAD approved by OMB

Why does IV tweet USCIS and ask its members to retweet (happened in 2016)?

I agree IV is hardworking but just dont drink too much of their cool aid and start attacking hard working people who are taking time off from their regular work and fighting for us.

Its a low that they call other organizations as lawyers organizations. Why would lawyers organizations get co-sponsorships for HR 392?

Calling, visiting is any day better (I do that, please do that).
Petition and tweeting is one of the tools SIIA has used, they are definitely inferior to ground level work. IV uses Petition and tweeting as tool discredit SIIA.

Topic: I-140 EAD approved by OMB

I respect people from IV for their dedication to this cause. But here I have to agree with you.

Following is IVs point of view:
If SIIA people meet congress members in DC with their own travel expenses in then it is photo op. If IV meets then it lot of hard work and sacrifice and ...
If SIIA gets a cosponsor that is because they stole advocacy documents and approach from IV. If IV gets a cosponsor then it thanks the member for taking time off from work etc...
SIIA derailed HR 213 by having a petition. Petitions are useless except when they work (H4-EAD).

IV is more worried about SIIA then getting the problem solved.

Topic: I-140 EAD approved by OMB

Congrats on her job. Dont delay the discussion but dont scare her based on junk you hear on the forums.
Tell her the best case scenario and worst case scenario and have a plan B.

Best case scenario H4 EAD will go under the radar.

Worst case scenario is in a week Trump will ask agencies to give him recommendation about cancellation with in 90 days. Assuming he will instruct Agencies to start working on cancelling it with in a month or two. With the amount of resistance(lobbying, meeting congresswoman/reporters) we put the cancellation process will take any where from 9 months to 1.5 years. So you pretty much have 1.5 to 2 years before anything bad happens.

From the other executive orders cancellation wont affect already issued EADs.
Its good if she hears from you rather than a coworker who has half knowledge.

To answer your point "Don't we deserve the same as any European/Bangladeshi/Nepali deserve.".
No we don't. We are used to being treated badly, european world is not, they will raise up. :). Sorry if I offended anyone.
