Topic: Time to go back Home country? No more Golden spoon life in USA

I agree, what happened to those people who lost their jobs is not right. I do not wish that to any person, including yourself.

But to say that immigrants are beneficiaries of other people's misery is unfair. It is the company's decision to fire them, not the immigrants. Those under work visas followed the process in good faith. If you want to blame someone, blame corporate America.. So what American values do you want protected again? Capitalism, perhaps? buy American (albeit made in China)?

Don't even get me started with the rescinding of EAD eligibility to H4 folks. This is outright oppressive... very inhuman

Topic: Time to go back Home country? No more Golden spoon life in USA

I said it before but will say it again. DACA can be likened to 'the fruit of the poisonous tree". It is illegal through and through and to advocate for it is definitely not fair to legal immigrants who are stuck with the very inefficient immigration policies and processes.

If they want DACA kids to stay, then there should be some sort of consequence/penalty to the people who brought them over- I call that Justice.

Back to OP's point, it will also be harder for MS graduates who plans to remain in the US via the STEM OPT route. I just read somewhere that the current administration will limit this as well. essentially, everything Obama put into place, they will pull it back.

I agree with you. All these shutdown stuff is BS, heard it so many times already. It would be fun if it happens this time really, but Im sure they wont let it happen else they are putting their re-election dreams in the crapper.

Topic: FYI ONLY: US: Preparing for a Possible Federal Gov Shut down

from Fragomen:

Preparing for a Possible Federal Government Shutdown


November 30, 2017



Executive Summary
• If Congress is unable to pass a funding resolution by December 8, immigration operations at the Department of Labor would be suspended; USCIS and State Department application processing would continue but could be delayed.
• E-Verify, the EB-5 Regional Center program and other immigration programs will expire if they are not reauthorized by December 8.

________________________________________
The situation

Debate over funding levels for FY 2018 is intensifying in Washington, raising the possibility of a federal government shutdown and the suspension or delay of some immigration functions if a spending agreement or stopgap measure cannot be reached by December 8. Though a shutdown is by no means certain, employers may want to take steps now to minimize disruptions in the event of a funding impasse.

The December 8 deadline also attaches to several expiring immigration programs: the E-Verify employment eligibility verification program, the EB-5 Regional Center permanent residence program for foreign investors, the Conrad 30 program for foreign medical graduates and the non-minister religious worker permanent residence program. The statutory authority for these programs will expire if Congress does not take action to reauthorize or temporarily extend them by December 8.

A closer look at immigration functions

Immigration operations would likely be affected as follows in the event of a shutdown:
• Department of Labor: Foreign labor certification services are likely to be suspended as non-essential functions. No PERM applications, labor condition applications (LCAs), prevailing wage requests (PWRs) or applications for temporary labor certification would be processed. Online application systems would not accept PERM applications or audit responses, LCAs or PWRs. The agency would also be unable to accept submissions by mail.
• U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS): USCIS should continue to process applications and petitions for immigration benefits during a government shutdown, though processing delays could occur. Because DOL LCA operations would be suspended, employers planning to file H-1B, E-3 or H-1B1 extensions or changes of employer - for which a DOL-certified LCA is required - may be affected. USCIS's SAVE system, which is used by government agencies to verify the immigration status of applicants for benefits, could remain operational, but if it is suspended, foreign nationals applying for driver's licenses and other state or federal benefits would experience delays.
• Department of State (DOS): DOS should process visa applications as long as filing fees remain available to fund consular operations. If a shutdown is lengthy and fee funding is depleted, the agency could suspend visa processing or limit it to emergency cases only.
• Customs and Border Protection (CBP): Inspection functions at U.S. borders and ports of entry would remain in operation. CBP would likely process immigration applications at the border, such as applications for initial TN or blanket L status submitted by Canadian nationals.
• Social Security Administration (SSA): SSA would not process applications for Social Security numbers or replacement cards during a shutdown.
Impact on expiring immigration programs

The following will occur - at least until further congressional action - if sunsetting immigration programs are not extended by December 8:
• E-Verify: Employers who participate in the system would no longer be able to submit employment verification queries.
• EB-5 Regional Center Program: USCIS would cease to accept petitions and applications for adjustment of status under this category.
• Conrad 30 Waiver Applications and Non-Minister Religious Worker Petitions: USCIS would no longer accept these applications and petitions.
Fragomen is closely following the appropriations debate and will issue further client alerts as developments occur.

This alert is for informational purposes only. If you have questions about the impact of a federal shutdown or expiring immigration program on your organization, please contact the immigration professional with whom you work at Fragomen.

Topic: Congressman/Senator inquiry workflow

I requested the dame too.. from CT Senator Blumenthal (D), who was supposedly pro-immigration. Guess what, did not receive any response. So, in my opinion, this is a waste of time.

Topic: RAISE Act is here

In my opinion, DACA is similar to a 'fruit of poisonous tree' case. It is illegal through and through. This has been hyped up in the press and a lot of people are pushing for action to the point that it over-shadowed the plight of those who are going through the process legally.

Topic: EB1 Eligibility

Hi, sorry I'm confused. Why would it be a resignation and not a transfer?

L visa would require proof that it is a "transfer" hence if you resign then my guess is that it is not a 'transfer'; then your best bet is H. As to I-485 category, EB1 again states that it should be a transfer.. if you resign and there is a significant gap in your employment then it could be problem.

Topic: Switch to EAD on H1B denial

Hello: is there any reason why you think the extension will be denied? I say let it go through and find out, you do have a safety net in the form of EAD anyway. Besides, you are EB2, so no issues (yet) on your spouse EAD eligibility unlike EB3 where the current admin is hot on removing EAD privileges for spouses.

Topic: 485 approval delay- What is going on?

If you have been a regular in this forum, there are 3 common advise on how to follow-up, with the hope to either know what is going on or if possible, to expedite, viz:

1) Open an SR, talk to L2 etc
2) Contact Congressman/Senator office to inquire in your behalf
3) Infopass

I did all 3 and basis my experience, nothing help except plain old 'waiting'. Very disappointing given that this is a '1st' world country and you would think things will be 'more efficient'.

Hang in there brothers- every story will have an ending. Meanwhile, try to enjoy life and try not to focus too much on the green card. Easier said than done, but hey- better positive than negative

H1 is non-immigrant visa class and subject to specific duration of stay. It exist due to its inherent characteristic as "temporary".

Green card = permanent residence.

Go figure.

Nothing, brother. I'm just trying to make sense of this all as perhaps they might be targeting specific fields? My Company does process EB1Cs that are non-IT (from India too) who are +/- 30 of your priority date and theirs went through without issues. but what do I know....

The intention is good and sound.
If it passes then it will benefit a lot.
If not- I hope things just turn out for the worse as it is already bad as it is.

Topic: Congressman contact

That is very good to know. I am of the thought that they are not obligated to extend such 'services' to non-citizens let alone, non-voting folks. The fact that some offices really reach out to USCIS to help or at least inquire on the status of immigration cases is absolutely awesome.
