Topic: Obama EO: EAD for approved I 140

my comments:
Dear Mr. Cummings:
Here are my comments to this proposed regulation.

1 REVOCATION OF APPROVED EMPLOYMENT-BASED IMMIGRANT VISA PETITIONS:
Comments: I support this part of rule where Immigration petition cannot be revoked based only on withdrawal by the petitioner or termination of the petitioner's business.
It takes time and cost both to get an Immigration petition approved. Perm Processing time has increased to 8 to 10 months. In order to support job mobility as suggested by Presidents Executive action I would like to request USCIS to improve this part of the rule that same Immigration petition should be used to adjust status after an employee switches job. At the time of filling I 1485 the supplement J form can be used to confirm that person has a valid job that is in same or similar classification. It is really burdensome to file PERM AND Immigration petition again and again whenever we switch job. For EB3 India category the wait is for more than 12 + years.
During such lengthy adjustment delay a person should be allowed to switch job as many times he likes based on approved Immigration petition and there should not be a need to file Immigration petition again and old Immigration petition should be allowed to use to file I 485.

2) NONIMMIGRANT GRACE PERIODS:
Comments: This is really good that DHS/USCIS has recognized the need for grace period if a person on H1B loses his job.60 day’s grace period is sufficient time to find another job. It should not be a onetime grace period as suggested in this rule. A person facing lengthy adjustment delays of 10 + years can lose job multiple times during such period and each time he should be given 60 days grace period to find another job. This interim 60 days grace period would further support the enhanced job portability protections provided to H-1B non immigrant workers by AC21, which authorizes them to change jobs or employers upon the filing of a non-frivolous H-1B petition. So this should not be a onetime affair and without any restrictions.
3) ELIGIBILITY FOR EMPLOYMENT AUTHORIZATION IN COMPELLING CIRCUMSTANCES
Comments: This is the most disappointment part of this regulation. President Obama's Executive action clearly states this: “Providing portable work authorization for high-skilled workers awaiting LPR status and their spouses”. We are in this country for more than 10+ years as non immigrants, paying taxes and abiding to rules and regulations.
As a future permanent residents we should have rights as Immigrants. Changing jobs is one of the basic Immigration rights. He should have right choose where to work. Employment Authorization Document is the only way we have right to choose employer without exploitation. I have failed to understand why USCIS did add compelling circumstances for ELIGIBILITY FOR EMPLOYMENT AUTHORIZATION for people with approved Immigration petition.
USCIS can issues millions of EMPLOYMENT AUTHORIZATION staying illegally and giving them right to work anywhere. But people who have come legally do not have that right and in some cases they have to wait more than 15 years to get that right. Every Year we have to extend our H1's because clients do not give letter for more than an year.H1 extension are taking more than 6 months. We cannot travel easily as each time we travel we have to get visa stamped and because of risk of rejection many have not travelled for years to meet their family’s this a country which is created by immigrants has to provide to legally tax abiding non imitations who will be future citizen.
USCIS is milking money with H1B fees and it seems it does not want people to move out of this H1 loop. This is only reason it seems USCIS did provide COMPELLING CIRCUMSTANCES for an EAD.
EAD should be given to anybody who is in this country legally as non immigrant waiting LPR with approved Immigration petition. This.This gives employers time recover the money they have spent on immigration petition and an employee an option to choose another employer if employer is exploiting him.
EAD will help to keep non immigrants at par with American on job search filed and their won’t be any more incentive for employer to hire an H1b over American as non immigrants will Demand same wage which is as per market standard. This will make the system clean and fair to Americans as well as non immigrants.
I would like to request Investigation on what prompted USCIS not to provide EMPLOYMENT AUTHORIZATION for people with approved Immigration petition and add compelling circumstances. What vested interest had encouraged to add compelling circumstances for EMPLOYMENT AUTHORIZATION?

I would request USCIS to please remove COMPELLING CIRCUMSTANCES from this regulation for EMPLOYMENT AUTHORIZATION for legally tax paying non immigrants with approved Immigration petitions.

I agree with you.Instead we all should try to join IV advocacy event and try to get 213 passed.
We will get an insight how internal works.

I agree with you.if we see IV response to USCIS comments and whatever we are hearing from different sources WH has accepted most of there recommendations apart from recapture and dependent exclusion.
http://www.regulations.gov/#!documentDetail;D=U...
IV has bunch of arrogant people,but they do have sensible people who have made right recommendations which will help all of us.POTUS cannot give GC but atleast EAD/AP and other fixes should help all of us.It is matter of time when report will be out and may be in a year's time all of us will have EAD/AP.
we can support them for HR 213 if we can so that backlog is removed.Have EAD/AP resolves most of the issues still scrutiny is there at POE.

Topic: EAD for H4 Visa Holders

On November 21, 2014, the President issued a memorandum to stakeholder agencies to submit recommendations for modernization and streamlining of the broken immigration system by March 22, 2015 (Oops!). To implement this direction of the President, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (USCIS) and the U.S. Department of State issued notice today in the federal register requesting the public to submit information and ideas within next 30 days, meaning by January 29, 2015. Based on these inputs, these stakeholder agencies will draw up the recommendations mandated by the President and and present to the President by March 22, 2015 (Oops!). Based on these recommendations, the President is likely to issue reform of the "legal" immigration systems which can be fixed "administratively" and without legislation. For the reasons, the White House is encouraging the public to take the stakeholder's request for information notice in today's federal register seriously and actively participate in this effort so that he can work out administrative reforms of broken legal immigration system aside from the ongoing immigration actions that are focused on relief of undocumented immigrants. We posted the federal notice yesterday and readers may go back to our posting.

Topic: EAD for H4 Visa Holders

You are mistaken.It clearly a AND.You can get extension under ACT21 only when you have I140 approved.Please don't pass wrong information.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) proposes to amend its regulations by extending the availability of employment authorization to H-4 dependent spouses of principal H-1B nonimmigrants who have begun the process of seeking lawful permanent resident status through employment and have extended their authorized period of admission or "stay" in the U.S. under section 104(c) or 106(a) of Public Law 106-313, also known as the American Competitiveness in the Twenty-First Century Act of 2000 (AC21).

Topic: EAD for H4 Visa Holders

I am myself saying we should focus on H4EAD.Only thing I am suggesting if somehow we can engage a bigger audience
then probability of this moving increases.And in order to engage more people there should be broader vision and a new group.

We can then push hard for H4EAD rule and in parallel nobody is stoping us to propose other measures.

But it seems H4 EAD one's are happy with 5000 people on board rather than 100k pitching for H4EAD.

H4EAD rule is good.But it only helps those who have I140 approved and have got extension beyond 6 years.

What about those H1's who have not completed 6 year period and cant get extension under AC21?
What about those who not have I 140 approved yet?
what about those EB-Eb3 People who are waiting since 5-10 years?
What about those new H1's who have entered US in last 2 years?They will have to wait 4 years more to get benefit?
How to engage them?

If we engage bigger audience chances of even getting H4EAD increase.Because suddenly instead of 100 or 200 email faxes
there can be in 1000's.

But problem is everybody is thinking just of there problem.
Till we all unite all H1-B's,H4's,I140 approved,I 140 Pending ,Labor Pending it would be difficult to get things done.
Nobody is understanding that.

The point is to have one thread| group.We want to bring people together.This thread is watched by more than 700 people.

Again creating new thread won't help and will break the group in smaller thread.So either we come together or keep doing what
some are doing,sending emails or just thinking and trying to interpret when will it come.

So decide for yourself,what everybody wants.A small group trying what they have been doing or make this group so big that
we are heard.

So if 100k members sign petition for H4EAD,white house may push USCIS to get it expedited.

Topic: EAD for H4 Visa Holders

Just an Example if we have 100k members:
Others Sign

After you publish the petition, it’s up to you to promote it and get others to sign. You’ll get an automatic email once your petition is published that you can forward to get started. Remember you have just 30 days to get 100,000 signatures in order to get a response from the White House. And it’s up to you to get to 150 signatures in order for your petition to be publicly searchable on the We the People tool on WhiteHouse.gov.

3
The White House Reviews and Responds

Once the petition reaches the required threshold, it will be put in a queue to be reviewed by the White House. Others can still sign the petition while it is awaiting a response from the White House. When the White House responds, everyone who has signed the petition will get email from the White House to let you know that we’ve reviewed and responded to the petition

Things can have better impact when 100k members do whether it is email/Fax,sign the petition or anything else.

Few people doing nobody cares.

I don't see we can ever unite

This is old news.POTUS was more or less clear yesterday that though he is working on it,it will take time.

This is the time to Join hands,generate numbers so that we get H4EAD and if EO comes legal community is not left behind.
