Topic: H4 EAD : Immigration Voice seeks to intervene in H4 EAD case

Hope all those H4 guys who were looking for IV help could reciprocate by giving a monthly contribution to support IV.

That is what we all are expecting... it could/would get clubbed with an H1B restriction bill as both of them has bipartisan support.. hope that happens within next 6-12 months.

Great logic.. an Indian who is already employed in US doesn't qualify for a GC but someone who cannot even read/write English is fine.. great twisted logic... you need real help man! Once again I am not from WITCH companies and this bill has nothing to do with WITCH... this is to bring fairness to EB categories.

Now you don't like people from WITCH next what you don't like people from your own country ... do you have a clue how many green cards are given out in an year in this country... ONE MILLION... out of which JUST 15% based on SKILL (EB categories ... 145,000) rest 85% is based on FAMILY relationship... where they don't even check if you can talk/read English.. and now you have the argument that people from WITCH cannot be given green card because they are not qualified.. go convince your elected members of Congress that WITCH should not be given GCs because they are not qualified!... You don't have a clue about what you are talking about.. go educate yourself first.

HR 392 has nothing to do with defining EB 1/2/3 ... Bill is only about removing discrimination based on Country of Birth when the category itself is called 'Employment'/'Skill' based... if someone from Mongolia is eligible to get GC in EB2 within 6 months it should be same for a person with similar qualification from India too.... now please come up with better excuses to oppose HR 392... something better than you getting 'labeled' as such... pathetic.

You can't digest the fact that your fellow countrymen would get green cards in 3 to 5 years if this bill gets approved (instead of 20-30 year wait periods)... isn't it?

Topic: "Legal immigration is a completely separate subject" -WH

Now to address your concern...

Fighting H4 EAD has to be done at 2 different levels first be part of the current legal challenge in DC appeals court if you are eligible to be part of the same, or challenge any EO which may harm H4 EAD. Its upto individuals/organizations to make the decision when and how to be part of the fight.

Regarding HR392 : Nobody is saying that HR392 will be passed as a standalone bill.. it will NEVER be.. BUT if we gather enough support for HR392 it will get passed as part of H1B restriction bills in this congress. Both H1B restriction and country quota removal has bipartisan support and it is in our own best interest to make sure that HR 392 gets maximum co-sponsors so that congress don't ignore it when it comes to immigration bills... it is a tough task but in this toxic climate this is the only one which seems to be achievable.. btw this is my personal opinion and I am not representing IV, SIAA, Blah Blah Blah or any other orgnization.. being in this country for last 14 years I think I have tried to learn bits and pieces of how the system works.. may be I am wrong. :-)

First of all there is NO muslim ban... as per US constitution religion cannot be used to discriminate an individual even in the matter of immigration... even with new EO (coming out next week) administration is going to ban people from 7 countries irrespective of their religion for a limited period (until and unless they come up with better vetting process) they are using national security concern as a tool to achieve this. Now Illegal deportation... they are enforcing existing immigration laws, nothing new from a legal aspect for that enforcement and hence won't have major challenges in judiciary.

H1B, H4, OPT etc cannot be altered just like the above two enforcement's... administration will have to follow the due process or they will face legal challenges as what happened in the case of first EO. H1B changes has to go through legislative process, H4 and OPT has to go through regulatory process (or use the judicial challenges against H4/OPT to their advantage). Just an EO won't change/end any of these programs.. at the same time administration could make our life miserable by giving 221G (administrative processing) etc during our visa stamping or ask for detailed documentation at port of entry etc but they cannot add new criterion for H1B recruitment like offering the job to US citizens or increasing the salary to 130K etc. as it is NOT part of the current law and will have to go through legislative process.

Definitely yes, we can fight it in the court but do we have the resources for a fight till Supreme Court? Will Supreme Court even prioritize this kind of a case for re-hearing or will they just go with the appeals court decision? For sure any decision in district/appeals court would be challenged in Supreme Court subsequently and these are the critical questions we will have to face once we are there.
So for the time being please call your Congressman/women to get co-sponsorship and support for HR392 as that is the only hope in this toxic climate... forget IV, SIAA, Blah Blah Blah etc... do it for yourself and your family. Just to share...I got confirmation from our congresswoman's office that they are ready to co-sponsor HR 392 (couple of different constituents had to call 4-5 times and 4-5 follow up emails did the work for us)... will be helping friends in the neighboring districts to get their congressman's support... lets get this done friends!

H1B visa's are issued as per law approved by US congress... Trump/Bannon cannot just issue an EO to end that... worst case they can make the visa stamping criterion tougher in US consulates or make it tougher during the re-entry in port of entry... no drastic measures can be done without legislative changes..so as long as you have your employment docs you are covered for the time being... it may be a different story for H4 EAD / OPT as they don't have the backing of a congressional bill (both of them where part of EO/rule making process)... still they will have to go through the proper channel (rule making/judiciary process) even to change H4 EAD/ OPTs.

Let me try to address this question.. I am a low level member of IV... I am part of IV just because I want to help myself.. I don't contribute a SINGLE PENNY to them BUT I work with other IV volunteers to make calls, visit congressman's office etc.... so my request to all of you is to support IV in all those activities to get HR 392 done... that is our only way out and there is a good chance that it would get through as a compromise for restricting H1/L1 visa.

Topic: How much will EB2I move even if country limit is removed?

"thousands of Indians force their way into the US" ... Unfortunately these thousands are in US and waiting patiently for last 5-10 years... root cause of this issue is that when they allot the work visas they don't have a per country quota BUT when they allot GC they have the quota system... either remove the quota from both ends or add quota on both ends.... keeping it fair to everyone... else people of India and China has to wait for 15-20 years to get GC while people from other countries get GC in 6 months.

Topic: How much will EB2I move even if country limit is removed?

" so India is already getting most of the eb2 visas" ...

This is as wrong as you can get.. there is NO spill over happening for last 3 to 4 years... as a 2009 EB2I stuck in line I can confirm it. BTW once the country quota is removed all 40,000 visas will be applied as per Date of Application... so you can do your math to calculate the movement.. roughly within next 2 years EB2I should reach at least 2012-13 priority date (EB3I also would have a major uptick)... HR 392 is the only way out for us in the current political scenario.

Topic: Mar-2017 VISA bulletin Predictions

"Let me know how we should be contacting lawmakers"

This is exactly what I did yesterday afternoon...

1. Found my representative, you can google it. Luckily she was one of the earlier co-sponsors of HR 213.
2. Browsed her website and found the contact number for her local office.
3. Called the local office and asked for the staff member handling immigration issues.
4. Talked to the staff member and thanked them for supporting HR 213 in 114th congress and talked in detail about the issue and then about HR 392 (new bill) and requested to get congresswoman's co-sponsorship even this time.
5. Staff member took all the details and mentioned that it will be forwarded to the Legislative assistant who handles Legislation from DC office and also mentioned that Legislative assistant will get in touch with me.
6. Got the email from Legislative Assistant within couple of hours stating that they will get in touch with Jason Chaffetz office (congressman who introduced the bill) and will let me know about the co-sponsorship soon.


I am planning to follow up with them next week if they don't get back by that time... if they are not willing to consider it just over phone please plan for a face to face meeting first with the immigration staffer and later on with congressman directly and get few of your friends along with you.

Guys please spend 30 minutes of your time to make this call to your rep's office... as this is our only way out.

Points based blah blah blah ... hearing it from 2006/2007 Bush era.. bill had passed house and bush was looking for just 4 more senators to get it through the filibuster in Senate and it failed... this is the worst news we can get on legal immigration front.. which means nothing is going to happen anytime soon.

Topic: Issa bill h1 b

Prevailing wage is based on job location ... if your company is in Tx and you are working in SFO (or for a client in SFO) your prevailing wage is based of SFO.... Intent of the bill is to provide more opportunities to Americans and reduce the dependency on foreign nationals... I don't see anything wrong with that approach... even though I am on the receiving end. :-)

Intent of the bill is to NOT get foreign professionals for jobs below 100K... if there is a 60K opportunity companies should/could offer it to a local... doesn't that make sense?.. so in bigger cities like SFO/NYC they could bring in foreign nationals as there are more opportunities and wages are above 100K but in smaller cities companies has to hire locals for jobs below 100K.. win-win for everybody.
