    I never saw the CPO email or status...all that got via email and online is "Notice mailed welcoming the new permanent resident". Does this mean no card ordered or is it kind of goes with out saying.

    i got green today

    Yours and illinois_alum were in the excel sheet and were current? Were there anyone else current in the sheet we sent to USCIS and waiting for EAD? We need to find out if they cleared the easy cases first and gave them GCs instead of processing EADs. As per our latest information, USCIS had been going through the scanned notices. The NSC issue fix was already set in motion last week. It remains to be seen how soon NSC EAD cases are cleared. It will not be overnight, and may take some time, but we have to monitor the improvements in NSC.

    After a little bit of delay and suspense and a number of Soft LUDs...I finally received my renewal EAD today. Hurray !!! It almost feels like receiving a GC.

    So, here's the deal:
    E-filed for myself and my wife on 03/16
    Approved on 04/09
    Wife's EAD received on 04/12
    Then started all the drama..
    A lot of LUDs..but no card for me. The status shows approved day and then Post-processing and then again back to Card-production ordered...Here and there and last week i saw a message saying .."Your new card is sent to your address on file". I must've checked my application at least 10 times before submitting...No issues with the application. But hey...All is well that ends well.

    All the best to everyone else too...Always be hopeful and celebrate every good news..

    i don't get it you are saying that members don't have to search...and yet someone has to keep it up on the home page...which is it? yes a sticky thread would have saved work and not required someone to keep it up. Why wasn't it done in the first place. When a service is supposed to be offered every should be offered every week...or else there should be an announcement that is will not be offered this particular week and that it will continue next on said week.

    No reason to be frustrated when people are asking simple questions...another idea would be to put the answers to the most frequently asked questions on the FAQ page...which does not work right that you don't have to repeat the answers.
    Its an easy solution i think.

    Giving a long lecture of frustration is not the best way to attract people to an organisation.
    Think about u go buy clothes from a store that voices their frustrations about the prices of raw material...of do u go buy it because they were nice to you...had great customer service...nice selection of goods...and fair prices.I am sorry but working for hours on end alone, voicing frustration at lack of participation, treating members like they are morons for not being able to find supposedly simple things is a really terrible way to attract more people to an organisation. The cause may be noble...but who will wanna join some organisation where people just complain about how miserable things are.

    Please pause for a moment and think about what i am saying. This is exactly why you have less participation and less donation. IV needs to transform into a vibrant fun place to be while still upholding the noble cause.

    Those stores are making profit by selling you goods/services. IV is a non-profit ogranization and no one is making any profit here. I came to IV through google when I was searching on some immigration issues. I started reading info here and came to know what IV is about and what they are doing. I am not blaming others for not spoon feeding me.

    It seems some people already coverted\or in the process of coverting from Eb3 to Eb2. Even I did that recently.


    When you do that, will you retain both cases or give up one?

    And, say, my case is CP and is already in Consulate awaiting interview. If I start a new LC in EB2, do I have to give up my existing case?

    if IV is going to show some interest on EB3.

    Not possible explicitly for EB3.IV is for EB community to support generic issues like CIR etc...Which may help EB2 and EB3.

    What is your PD? There is a portion of the memorandum that needs your child's age at the later of the date when PD is current or when petition is approved if PD is current by petition approval date.

    I think you should submit an I-485 for your child as soon as possible or if the child is not in the US then file a I-824 immediately. This will serve as proof that your child "sought LPR status" within one year of your PD becoming current. Even if the 485 or 824 is rejected, you have established the fact that your child "sought LPR status" and leave room for administrative appeal in future.

    This is just my 2 cents and I am not a lawyer. However, whichever way you interprete the new memorandum your child's CSPA age is under 21.

    Says who?

    How do you know that US masters degree dont need to work for consulting firms?

    Do US masters degree holders work for Deloitte? IBM Global Services? Accenture? KPMG? Price Water House Coopers?

    What about Oracle consulting services? What about TRW? Bearingpoint?

    All these are consulting companies or the divisions of consulting companies. Both US degree holders and the non-US degree holding duffers like myself work in consulting firms(I dont anymore since 2003). In fact, I have had my classmates from India have to look for consulting jobs after they did MS in computer science from USA.

    You are under the impression that the bill is outlawing desi consulting firms and firms that exploit.

    The bill outlaws OUTPLACEMENT. And the bill applies to all firms, desi firms and the big 5 consulting firms and your IBM, TRW ... everyone.

    Please read the bill and read the description in the first post.

    And although I am the last one to engage in US-degree versus non-US degree and Masters Versus Non-Masters fueds, I am tempted to say that US masters or US degree isnt worth a bucket of warm spit when the market is bad.

    When the market is really bad, like it was in 2001 and 2002, I have seen many Masters degree holders pack up and throw in the towel and I have seen many individuals with degrees from private Tier 3 university from India survive just fine in an environment where there were 80 resumes for each IT job. The US masters degree holders, particularly with computer masters degrees with their courses in useless subjects like "assembly level programming" and their binary math didnt do squat for them while looking for jobs during recession times and could not stand competition from bachelor's degree holders from Tier 3 university from India who had done 6 month course in NIIT.

    However if you are proud of your US degree and US masters, suit yourself. But dont say things like "I dont need consulting". Coz you really do and so do thousands of others having US degrees.
    I take strong exception to following statements:

    "The US masters degree holders, particularly with computer masters degrees with their courses in useless subjects like "assembly level programming" and their binary math didnt do squat for them while looking for jobs during recession times and could not stand competition from bachelor's degree holders from Tier 3 university from India who had done 6 month course in NIIT. "

    The above statement is completely wrong. I needed assembly level programming and the binary math for designing satellite switched routers. There is no way to get packet processing time to less than a micro second without knowing assembly language and binary math. I have been in R&D for 3.5 years and I can assure all of you who are taking these courses that these courses are very relevant if you are looking for a job in high computing and high performance industry.

    In addition I passed MS in 2001 and alongwith many others went through the same period of 2001 job market!

    Hello Friends,

    Got a chance to speak to a customer service advocate at NSC. A very nice lady looked up my case and told me the case is with an officer. She also added I will be hearing something very soon. So keeping my fingers crossed. I always wondered if the cases made to an IO only when a visa number was assigned to the case or whether the case went to the IO first and then they looked to assign a numbers. Don't know - but will hopefully hear some good news soon. Good luck to all of you.

    Hi SeekerOfPeace,

    USCIS received my I-485 application on 07/02/2007, but it ignored the mail room receipt date and updated my case with 08/05/07 as the receipt date.

    No news on EAD,
    65 days and counting.

    Got RFE on e-filed AP for my wife. They probably lost photos and asked for new set. Just shipped the reply and photos back to TSC.

    Hope that triggers something.

    Last time, I got couple of soft LUDs on 07/24; 07/25; 07/27 on all our EADs and APs. Wife's AP has hard LUD 08/05 (when they issued RFE) and soft LUD 08/06 (when RFE was mailed).

    This is what is there in 187, no mention of page s1105

    Only mention page s1121, s1044-1045.

    I am still wondering to which amendment S1105 attached

    Amends: H.R.2 , S.AMDT.112
    Sponsor: Sen Kerry, John F. [MA] (submitted 1/24/2007) (proposed 1/24/2007)
    In the nature of a substitute.



    Amendment SA 187 proposed by Senator Kennedy for Senator Kerry to Amendment SA 112. (consideration: CR S1044-1045; text: CR S1044)
    Amendment SA 187 agreed to in Senate by Unanimous Consent.

    s1105 refers to a page. This corresponds to SA 187 ( and I request you to see BACKLOG REDUCTION is there).

    Wow!!! I wish I could have attended this mesmarizing rally experience. Now can you guys come up with more data on who (Rally member) met who (Law makers / Media Persons ) and how those meetings were and what opinions you heard at least verbally. What we could successfully conveyed particularly to law makers etc...

    While we need to collate all the lawmaker meetings data, PLEASE DO NOT post any meeting details on the forum. We do not want to make any of the confidential data public.

    We shall let you all know how we wish to collect the information.

    Thank You.

    read up..... mhathi has explained it.

    For more acronyms read this thread, it's a good source to find all the terms used.

    I am wondering what is ROW (in EB3) means?

    I see some people wrting EB3 ROW. Looks like it's different from EB3.

    I appreciate if some body can explain ROW as used in EB3.

    Thank you.

    Reading your long winded message, I have to question your rationale with respect to your argument and the sneakiness of the message. Your first post with a new id is to plead for re-capture and not work for re-intrepretation of spill over. I have seen this before. Period.

    Hi friends,

    Let me introduce myself as an EB3 applicant waiting for about 5 years in the line!

    Not many will probably be pleased with what I would like state. This calls for some dispassionate introspection.

    First of all, let us realize that Green Card is not a right. The rules of the game were clear when we applied and all of us were conscious of what was in store. We all applied with the hope (repeat hope) of settling in the USA. The July 2007 fiasco helped many, including myself, to file 485. The US government went out of its way to accommodate us, rolled back their decision and allowed us to file 485 at that time. We must be eternally thankful for that. There is no need for INS to fear us. We all know how many years it takes to receive a reply from any government office, back home.

    To avoid wastage of visas, the INS has formulated some rules and many Indian citizens have been benefitted and will continue to benefit. The nos. have also been made transparent now. The problem with us is that we want more and more and more...Wastage of visas is not of relevance to the INS, it is of relevance to us. It is not fair to question the method of distribution or the rules behind the game. The truth is, we do not have any right to even comment, leave alone question the INS. Let us be clear about that.

    It is not not correct to assume that INS rules of distribution have been made arbitrarily. Are we the only intelligent people in the world? Is it that no one has thinking capability? Come on friends, let us be patient and happy for the consideration shown by INS. May be there have been lapses in the past. But which country or which organization / individual has been absolutely infallible? So let us stop blaming and critizing INS.This is a negative approach.

    Many Indians seem to get irritated when INS wants to enforce the rules. Nothing will ever happen to people who follow the rules in USA. I do not want to write in a public forum about all the tricks many do, to enter and stay here. Let us all listen to our inner voice.

    The real solution would be to plead for a visa recapture. That would be a positive approach. This EB3 / EB2 argument will vertically split the forum. If we EB3 people want to push our agenda, the EB2 folks have a right to counter it and appeal to INS. Afterall, today's world is one of cold and ruthless competition. So, let us not pursue this path.

    There are many EB2 candidates who have come to the US way back in 2001, but could file their Labor petitions only in 2006 or 2007 becasue they were forced to do bonded labour by the desi companies. In other words, everyone has had their share of the problems.


    EB3 friends, be confident. Everything will work out well!

    Best wishes
