    Hopefully this does not get postponed and happens sooner rather than later. This should make the priority dates move faster than now.

    First of all Congratulations desi#### and thanks for continuing to support IV.

    Interesting discussion going on. Yes, I agree that most of us here are waiting for our GC and some of them go on to become US Citizens.
    I believe that becoming a citizen of any country is a person's choice, so let us not give desi### a hard time here.:o
    But I certainly do not think it is an 'achievement' to get a US citizenship, just because it implies indirectly it is an 'achievement' to let go off Indian citizenship. Nothing meant to offend you desi#### but it hurts when one reads such a statement somewhere deep inside the mind. But hey, as I said earlier, to each his own and noone should be judging others in their decisions.
    And it is not only Indians becoming US citizens every year. There are others too.
    Personally, even with all the advantages as stated above of being a US citizen, I will never let go of my Indian passport. Even if the authorities give it to me tomorrow in a lottery;) Never.
    Why? Because my identity, my rich heritage, my family roots, my parents, my culture everything is Indian and am proud of it. There are lot of sentimental and emotional attachments. I was going through the OCI articles today after reading this discussion.
    It is not exactly a dual citizenship. Some clauses are no voting rights! No Indian Passport!
    Getting a GC is another thing, but when I decide to go back after a couple of years, I would definitely want to retain my voting rights. ! I rest my case.

    I totally understand the emotional point of someone being want to be a Indian Citizen but I have to stress there is no other country in the world like U.S.A. This is the country where every human being is treated with utmost respect (don't try to show me exceptions - U.S. is a country where most of things are close to being perfect imaginatively), have freedom to say anything they want without getting intimidated and U.S is a country I believe will be the last bastion for humanity when terrosists/fundamentalists spread their tentancles and take over the world by force or other means (if not now probabbly in the next 100-150 years). Hypocrisy is relatively less. We Indians live in a dream world nurtured by the Indian politicians, who try to inject doses of patriotic non-sense into the masses while they themselves stove away million of dollars in Swiss banks. 70% of Indian population lives below poverty line and the educated masses of India think that their country will become a super power by 2020. Politicians like Mayawati play caste politics and dream of taking the top most post while our liberal media, without a wee-bit of shame, extends its highest support for them. Corruption is part of our daily life and we are part of the everyday corruption but we still find no fault in our society. Our population growth is beyond control while not a single politician is concerned about the stress it is going to create on our natural resources in the future. Our education system is in shambles but our great politicians fight for increasing the reservation system to different castes just for the sake of garnering more votes. And the list goes on. Alas���God help India.

    FYI: I am a Indian and haven't even started my greencard process, for the same emotional reasons you mentioned, intending to R2I soon. Given a choice and circumstances, I would have opted for U.S.C as "I have no hope for this world neither do I wish for it" - quoting Bhagawan Krishna from Bhagavad Gita.

    Can anyone provide some useful insight based on personal experienceas to how valuable is Part Time MBA for oppurtunities in India?

    I am IT professional with lot of experience and currently pursuing Part time MBA from a business school which is ranked in top 25 and not in top 10.

    The way I see it that it will take me around 4 years to complete it and I have to invest atleast $30,000 even if I get employer to pay a part of it.

    In the end if it fetches me a top notch management position it will be well worth it. However I see limited chances of getting into management positions in US just based on MBA degree however I am not sure about India.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks for the info, In that case my firms tax returns show healthy net assets , lot more than the proofered wage. But I am still worried about the previous americandesi post about requiring Audited Financial statements to show net assets. I don't think my company will spare the time and money to prepare audited financials.

    Please read page 2 of Yates memo (Refer link). The Initial evidence "Annual report", "Tax return", and "Audited financial statement" map to "Employment of the beneficiary", "Net income" and "Net current assets" respectively.

    I would think IT experience is the same anywhere so taking it to canada should be ok? If not there are plenty of other management jobs there. It might be a new start but in a one year timespan you will be well established.
    Is it just my wishful thinking?

    As for masters, are you persuing MBA? How about PMP?

    1. Apply for Canandian PR and then if you are lucky you may get a good job in Canada in IT or else you will end up working in Wal*Mart or some grocery store cursing why you came here. Canadian Companies wants Canadian experience. US experience is not enough! :(

    2. Just enjoy without doing anything and hope that your GC would come before you die. :D

    3. Do some Masters degree. I'm currently erolled in a masters program and would somehow try to finish it. It would keep me focussed and create positive energies in me. Otherwise due to utter frustration, I'm not able to concentrate and work. If you are wise enough you would understand that there is no place for you here in US and you would push off immediately. :)

    Alright guys, Here's the last post, after which we strayed....lets either snap any discussions on this thread or continue to post only on the original content of the thread....

    As I thought about this further, I figured out the data is even worse than I thought earlier, as this may not have any 2007 numbers. People who filed their labors in 2007 were still waiting in july of 2007. So this data is only upto late 2006. Now the figures could be.

    5000 2001
    20000 2002
    20000 2003
    20000 2004
    5000 2005
    5000 2006

    10000 2004

    Can I take Infopass to find this info or is there a number I can call?
    Been soo long that I have forgotten how to do this..


    I hadn't heard about the new Memo..
    Last I checked, I had namecheck pending too and it was pending for more than 6 months..

    I can take up an Infopass to find out if its still pending.
    If it is pending for more than 2 yrs, what are the next steps?
    (Obviously 485 won't get approved if name check is pending)

    Sorry for the extra bit of sarcasm here, but I seriously expect us to raise a million $ for our efforts from the 25,000 members (or at least raise our targets significantly... ), and get some more ideas on resolving some of the communication and logistics issues - so any ideas that help us towards such a goal are welcome.


    I agree. I feel that the only thing that would be acheived if IV became a paid website is loss of membership. Then our PR documents will start with "IV is an organization of 200 members who are affected by ... "

    Human nature is such that a few lead and others follow. We should recognize this and move on.

    @ ndialani

    Sorry, should have put in a note for all you guys. Yes, have a copy of your 140 (that you think should be used, should be the one with the earliest priority date) & 485 receipt. Heck, I even kept a copy of my labor approval in the car.

    I think you are almost there. Good news should be around the corner for you. Having said that, please be persistent. I think if the first IO you talked to put in the details in the system, your case will be reviewed by the IO but dont leave anything to chance.

    Like I said in the earlier post, you dont lose anything by calling except for a couple miutes of your time. It's so much better than talking to some retard from Customer Service or spending hours commuting for an Infopass appointment which doesnt get you anywhere.

    Keep the faith and good luck!

    Thanks Caliguy for all your help.
    I was able to talk to IO in TSC. Very nice IO (male). He really took time to look into my case.
    First he said my case is preadj. , Than he mentioned my I-140 is under EB3 as per computer records.
    I told him, i have the copy of my approved I-140 and it is under EB 2 category. he put me on hold for like 4-5 minutes. Came back and said he has passed on the info to IO looking into my case . He asked me for Reciept,alien # ets. on my I-140 BUT God Darn it, i didint have the document with me at that time. He said, i could call, ad give it to IO . I was so MAD!!!
    After 30 minutes of searching, i found my approved I140 from 2006.
    I called POJ method Less than 2 minutes i spoke to IO ....they dont disclose the name.
    I explained my situation again and gave him all the info .He even asked my contact phone no.
    i gave it to him.
    I dont know , what to do next. Do you think they really pass in the info to IO reviewing the case?
    Should i call on Monday.
    Man! this weekend will be a GRIND!
    I wish , i had the I140 handy.
    So all of you there,
    Learn from my mistake...please have all the documents with never know, what they will ask for.
    Thanks again Caliguy!!!!

    As mentioned In Logiclifes first post in this forum,
    Organizations who have Millions of dollar In budget for pushing and lobbying their Issues failed also for whatever reason ( He did not mention reasons ).
    Does that mean that having a fat budget does not Impact the outcome ?
    What It proves Is Its really the Politics, election, People's focus on the Issue which matters and NOT the lobbying with big fat budget.
    And If its the case then our issue will be taken care of on its own merit when all above factors are in our favour, regardless of lobbying.

    Just a thought, I hope I am not upsetting the general trend of praising efforts.

    It was thru lobbying (on which contributions were spent) that we got provisions added the the Senate's comprehensive Immigration reform last year. Without lobbying, all that would not have happened. No other group, industry, company or organization was working to remove the hard cap on country quotas in EB immigration. It was exclusively by IV and QGA's efforts.

    Under certain circumstances , like the ones that existed last year with Jim Sensenbrenner as the House Judiciary Commitee chair , yes, even 10 million dollars spent in lobbying in one year cannot achieve even the smallest amount of law-change or regulation. No matter how you approach things, you cannot bypass House Judiciary committee regarding immigration provision. And you cannot bypass the chairman of that committee.

    However, things have changed significantly this year and that is why every effort done this year will make a difference. Biggest portion of the effort is lobbying and it can work if its given time and done patiently. And yes we do need contributions for that.

    A desi consulting company brought him to the US. When they realized he wasn't going to get a project, they just didn't let go of him. Since he was a reliable guy (1. he can be trusted with monthly grocery payment 2. his labor can be sold later to others 3. he servres as an insider who can get information if other consultants are trying to be sneaky by getting their resumes marketed by another company, etc etc, basically he is an asset even thought he doesn't have a project), they just decided to keep him there. These companies don't have attorneys. They take care of all legal matters themselves. Now, how much is hte USCIS fee to file for labor? How much to file for I-140? Peanuts right? So they continue to keep his application active. How hard do you think it is to get fake references when you can make fake resumes. They have fake pay stubs. Fake experience. Fake this and fake that. Everything they do is fake.

    So to others who have said that this thread has to be dropped, and have said that these desi companies are right in doing what they're doing, or who have blamed the system - I think that you are one of those people who are involved in such a racket. I know that I have touched your nerves by letting the whole world about this (not that some people didn't know this already). Why else would you want this thread dropped?
    Actually I know a guy who lost his job and joined a restaurant as a cook or something and applied GC, then after 1 yr or so got job again and used the EAD to change to the Tech Field again and at a different location.....I hear he is indeed facing some problems now.

    I think there is something wrong in lobbying of pro immigrants. Anti immigrants Convinced many Congressmen with facts and numbers that H1b wages are less than US workers. Pro immigrants should have collected accurate information about wages to counter their claims.

    This is truly unfair where country of birth determined who gets an 'Employment' based greencard before someone else. It can only be fixed by eliminating per-country limits.

    I say why stop there. Why not remove this entire nonsense of EB1 vs EB2 vs EB3 and go with a points based immigration , like they have in Canada? US immigration law is made unnecessarily complex just like their tax law.

    Lets not assume we know all legal stuff.
    Defining employer - employee relationship is different from abuse and we cannot relate these two.

    I do agree that to challenge the law rightfully, one has to have credibility.

    You are right that employer-employee relationship is different from abuse. However, they are related especially if employer takes legal route.

    I wanted to stress thru my post that H1-B worker can not put legal fight for these memo as it has to come from employer. Only time will tell, if or when any employer takes that step.

    One thing, I would like to add here is that memo are advisory in nature and they do not have force of law and apply only to USCIS officers, not to immigration judges.

    Not a legal advice.

    03-13 11:43 AM

    Allow me to respond to your message. But before I do that, will request you to please remove the advertisement to your website - which in my opinion is divisive. IV is not just for Indians or for people from any one country/geographical location. Hope you would agree and do the necessary at your earliest convenience.


    Sure. It has been done

    02-26 03:06 PM
    I dont think they will stamp like that...If you show only AP they stamp I-94 based on its expiry says AOS pending or If you show only H1-B visa on PP they stamp I-94 based on Visa expire date..

    But showing both at POE doesn't not give any value and also it might confuses IO..



    Meanwhile, my lawyer today emailed & confirmed that the h1b will be valid even after using AP to travel and one can also renew or transfer the h1b. Even after the current I-94 expires obtained using AP, if one has still valid EAD or H1B I-797, he/she will be in status. However she also said that this is tricky situation and she could not find any CIS memo.


    Now I see no reason why anyone should NOT use AP to travel. Why should ANYONE waste money and time for restamping and take a small chance???

    However as "Ramba" said in post# 27, it is still a small chance as no one knows what is exactly the CIS rules.

    Note: As many people have specified in their signature, this is not a legal advice and always consult your own attorney for your own case with all the details.
