Topic: H4 EAD renewal fee and process

My H1B is expiring on 30-Dec-2017 and the same is with H4 and H4 EAD. Now my employer has to file H1-Amendment along with which he is going to apply for H1/H4 extension. Can I add H4-EAD renewal form even though the expiry date is 30-Dec or should I wait. Kindly help.

Topic: Etihad via Abudhabi

We came to Chicago via Abu Dhabi 3 weeks back and our experience is as below:

Although we had long layover (5 hrs+) the total duration took to clear pre check and immigration was 30 min. Just so everybody know, the pre-check / security is like any US airport taking electronics out of bag, no water etc etc. If you can get that done quickly as for immigration i saw atleast 10+ officers midnight 2 AM local time. Also it is only for persons travelling via Etihad and i think total 3 /4 destinations like SFO, NY, Washington and Chicago during that time. So if you are close to flight start they send you ahead of queue etc to ensure that there is no delay in flight start. Etihad staff is very good in co-ordinating, which we could see people jumping through lines with courtesy sorry form their staffs.

Also, with respect to customs / immigration itself, after your standard immigration questions/prints they will have pictures of your bags and inquire do you have any pickle, spice, rice etc.. Then you are cleared. Upon arrival in Chicago, we were requested to have Passport Bio Page open and one office was checking before letting us outside the gate. Then pick up your bags like you do domestic travel and go for your transportation.

Topic: H1 TO L1A Change of Status with 2 month to max out 6 years

Need some clarification, i am currently in H1 visa with max out 6 yrs of stay by November 2015. My PERM is currently pending with DOL filed in January 2015. I travelled to US via the same company in 2009 and i am in employment with the same employee since 2007. As per company policy, i am eligible for L1A and performing managerial duties. I keep reading that in order to apply Change of Status to L1A from L1B we need to have minimum 6 months of visa validity. I am not clear whether that rule is applicable for H1 as well. If not, i am planning to apply COS to L1A in order to extend my stay by 1 year.

Can anyone pls clarify whether Change of Status from H1 to L1A require minimum 6 months of visa validity.

Topic: EAD for H4 Visa Holders

I sent online email as mentioned in one of the post and received below response from Member of Congress Illinois 8th District:
"Thank you for contacting me to share your views on our country's immigration policies. I appreciate you taking the time to make me aware of your concerns on this important issue.

Congress has continuously written and revised our country's immigration policy with the objective of achieving a fair and humane approach that protects our nation's values, borders and grows our economy. The time has come again to review and amend our immigration policy. Our current policy fails to secure our borders, provide our businesses with workers our economy needs to thrive, prevent families from being torn apart for years, and has led to 11 million undocumented individuals living in the shadows of our society.

On October 2, 2013, Representative Joe Garcia of Florida introduced H.R. 15, the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act. This legislation builds on the Senate's bipartisan immigration reform bill, which passed on June 27, 2013 with over two-thirds support. I am a proud co-sponsor of H.R. 15 because it provides a comprehensive overhaul of our immigration system that secures our borders and updates our laws in a manner consistent with our economic needs and our country's values.

H.R. 15 includes significant investments in our border security that is why this measure received bipartisan, unanimous approval from the House Homeland Security Committee. In an age of global terrorism, human trafficking and drug trafficking gaining control of our borders is not just an essential component of immigration reform, it is imperative to our national security.

H.R. 15 takes a common sense approach to addressing the status of the 11 million undocumented workers who are already in this country. It provides a fair and humane pathway to citizenship by allowing undocumented immigrants to apply for Registered Provisional Immigrants (RPI) status provided that they came to the U.S. before 2012; have never been convicted of a felony; agree to pay back taxes and penalty fees; and pass a background checks. RPIs will not be eligible for assistance programs like Medicaid, food stamps, or benefits under the Affordable Care Act. After 13 years in this provisional status, RPIs will be able to apply for citizenship if they meet English proficiency requirements, are able to maintain employment and pay additional fees, among other requirements. The U.S. is losing $20 billion in tax revenue every year because the majority of undocumented immigrants do not take part in the formal economy nor do they pay payroll taxes. An alternative approach that some have suggested, including the deportation of all undocumented immigrants, is an economically impractical approach that would cost taxpayers an additional $285 billion.

Our immigration system must support our economy by giving us the ability to adjust worker visa allotments to meet market demands, while at the same time protecting American workers. This bill reforms our visa program by creating a new merit-based system that awards points to immigrants based on educational credentials, work experience, civic involvement, nationality, family ties, age, and English proficiency. This new system allows the visa cap to fluctuate by using a formula that takes into account the unemployment rate in the U.S. and the number of visas requested the previous year. Every 100 immigrants who earn advanced degrees in the U.S. and then stay to work in technical fields create 262 jobs for American workers. Retaining those young adults who we educate benefits our economy and American competiveness globally. Additionally, to protect American workers and businesses, H.R. 15 also makes the E-Verify employment eligibility verification program mandatory and increases penalties for employers who employ undocumented immigrants. H.R 15 will strengthen our economy by attracting – not driving away – the best and the brightest investors, innovators, and job-creators.

Immigration reform is not just a problem that desperately needs solving, it is also an opportunity for substantial economic growth. More than 40 percent of Fortune 500 companies were founded by immigrants. These American companies employ more than 10 million people and generate annual revenue of $4.2 trillion. Passing comprehensive immigration is essential to our future economic stability and security. With 77 million baby boomers beginning to reach the retirement age, the Department of Labor has estimated there will be 33.7 million job openings between 2010 and 2020 in addition to 21.1 million job openings from economic growth and that in combination with low birth rates, means that immigrants will play a critical role in replenishing the labor force and the tax base.

Our rich immigrant history helped make us the strong and diverse nation we are today. In every generation from the time our government was founded, individuals from many backgrounds and nations came to the United States in hope of achieving the American Dream. The U.S. thrives when we attract the world's best, brightest and most hardworking. H.R. 15 is a common-sense approach that will secure our borders, create a fair, but rigorous pathway to citizenship while protecting and growing our workforce and economy. I will continue to call on my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to work together on this issue so that we may achieve the comprehensive immigration reform this country needs.

Thank you again for sharing your thoughts with me.

If I can be of further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me."
