EB2 and EB3 folks, Please sign this EB1C abuse petition, so that we can get more spillover and faster greencard:

+ report to Donald Trump, Sessions, Grasley etc about EB1C visa abuse on twitter, facebook and on their websites.

On the H1's I-797 approval notice, under "country of citizenship" it says "unkown". Has anyone been in this situation before? Will that be a problem for H4 EAD renewal?

H4EAD is under threat. Renew at the earliest.

Check the following excerpt from Jeff Sessions Immigration Handbook.
https://www.sessions.senate.gov/public/_cache/fi...

“Three of the president’s proposals target tech, [UC Davis Professor
Norm] Matloff notes: providing work permits for H-1B workers’ spouses;
expanding the Optional Practical Training (OPT) program, which allows
foreign students to work in the United States; and allowing green card
applicants more freedom to change jobs. Matloff expects the resulting
increase in the number of foreign workers competing for domestic jobs to
hurt American applicants and reduce pay. ‘This is especially true in that the
foreign workers are overwhelmingly young, thus exacerbating the rampant
age discrimination that we already have in the tech world,’ he writes. The
OPT program has been singled out by critics because some tech companies
advertise jobs specifically to those with OPT status, seemingly excluding
domestic workers.”

Why u think exposing Eb1C will result in retaliating against H4EAD?
If EB1C is not abolished. EB2 and EB3 will be kept waiting forever.

EB1C abuse is eating away all visa which would have come to EB2 and EB3 as spillover. Please sign EB1C abuse petition. link below. EB1C abuse petition which if implemented can get most of us faster GC: Out of 6000+ petitions to congress. EB1C abuse ban has one of the highest number of signatories, We have very high chance that this EB1C get abolished completely, still people signing & sending comments: https://www.petition2congress.com/6398/stop-eb1-...

I'm in pretty much the same shoes as you are, getting ready to file in a couple of days. I have been following the immigration forums and news. Here are my thoughts - If we are filing now, we are doing the right thing in filing per the current rules. In the best case, our request will be approved within a month. If it does not, then our saving grace might be the time the new administration takes in scraping off these rules i.e. if they decide to scrape it off. So for now there is'nt much we can do accept for filing and playing the waiting game.

I got the reply from the attorney regarding my earlier question. Posting it here for future reference by community members.
Q: On the H1's I-797 approval notice, under "country of citizenship" it says "unkown". Has anyone been in this situation before? Will that be a problem for H4 EAD renewal?
A: Go ahead with the filing of the the H4 EAD renewal - do send in the passports with the bio page for for the H1 and the H4, while the attorney contacts the " USCIS Premium Processing Unit" for correcting the I-797. Do not go for Visa stamping until the I-797 is corrected.

See http://www.trackitt.com/usa-immigration-trac... for some timelines.
There are a few people for whom it has taken upto 5 days.
Give it a couple of days before you get worried about it.
With the holiday season on you never know how many people are actually in the office.

Hello Trackit1234

I have been following your recent posts, you have constantly mentioned that you have come to know that EB1-C candidates (I suppose the non-fraudulent ones) are working with Jeff Sessions to end H4EAD. Can you furnish some more details of this?

You have mentioned a number of times, is that people should stop the petitions against EB1-C so that they no longer attack H4EAD. But is that the only way H4-EAD holders can fight for the only thing that they have possibly achieved in a long time? Lets think of other options too. (I am assuming you are not against H4-EAD, then that's a different scenario all together)

One other thing you have urged H4-EAD holders to renew their EADs as soon as possible, I am not sure if you are aware of the rules for EAD renewal, as far as I know one cannot file for renewal of his/her H4EAD more than 120 before expiry of the current EAD, so one cannot just renew their EADs as they wish !

The thing is any kind of fraud be it EB1-C, H-1B or even H4EAD should be dealt with by the administration. But just because of some fraudulent individuals (or companies), an entire group of oppressed legal immigrants should not be punished.

Even GC holders are not citizens so there can also be lawsuits against GC holders stealing jobs from Americans.

Lets think of positive ways to defend the H4EAD rule.

I understand your point and I am sure people are well aware of the upcoming uncertainties.

What I am asking you (or any one as a group) is that is our only chance to save H4-EAD is by stopping the EB1-C petition? People who may lose their EB1-C s will be the fraudulent ones and I am not sure how many of these fraudulent ones will want to come to lime light. I believe there are meany genuine Eb1-C candidates who have nothing to fear and will not bother about H4-EAD either.

Lets just keep EB1-C out of the picture for once and think what else we can do.

All they can do is stop renewal of H4EAD so it will die itself, they can't kill everyone H4EAD because people already put money and lawyer expenses for this so they have to find a way to handle this kind of situation, but it won't happen overnight because they have big fish which is DACA to handle, they will come on legal after sometime.

Wanted to get your views on -
"Second, the only way to “undo” a regulation is for the executive branch to publish a new regulation (which, as you know, can take years) or Congress would have to pass a law to change the regulation. I think the new administration has enough on their plate and probably is not planning to take any action on this issue."

H4EAD went through the rule making process, so it cannot be completely categorized under executive order or presidential memorandum.

trackit01234, since your spouse is not an Indian or Chinese national, then I guess you both should be having your GCs by now...but you mentioned in one of your posts that your spouse is on H4EAD & hence you are very interested in this...kind of confusing !

Anyhow you seem to be pretty convinced that H4-EAD is not here to stay somehow or the other it will be gone...lets hope things are not as bad...we are all aware of the uncertainties even then the human mind wants to hope for the best (dont worry we are all preparing for the worst !)

Did this rule not go to Congress for review before it got published ? Republicans had the majority in both the house & the senate. Why did they not oppose it then ?

trackit01234 is a big troll with his agenda of linking H4 EAD and Eb1C. If you see his foolish posts, he is relentless and posts links that are old. He either gets pleasure in fear mongering or a scared EB1C candidate. He keeps recirculating his shit in multiple threads. Please ignore him .

Oh by the way he keeps posting the same thing again and again till some one responds to him(did i say he was relentless :)). Just ignore him and eventually he will get bored. By responding to him you are feeding his ego or whatever it is he is trying to do.

My advise to all H4EAD holders would be to focus on whatever you are doing at present. To the best of my knowledge Congress had 60 days to review the rule & obstruct it, yet did nothing. The rule is here to stay. So please focus on whatever work you are doing & ignore all rumors
