    I guess we'll need to ADD to that number:
    1. BEC stuck folks who could not file in July 07
    2. PERM approvals starting August 07

    to the 47,728. Plus multiply by 2.1( for dependents ). That'll give the total VISA numbers required for this category to make it Current.

    If I have to guess-- (1) would be very less, may be 100-200 max
    (2) around 5000 ( just a PUMA)
    So, there are about 53000 EB2 I applications. and 2.1 * 53000 = 111300.

    If we can create 111300, EB2 I visas then it'll be CURRENT. easy:)

    Pending applications should include dependents as they have their own 485

    I think you need to send an email via vonage account to refer someone and the system automatically gives your account a credit when the other person signs up. Dont know if you can give a phone # and say that MR ABC should get the benefit of 'refer a friend'

    I thing you can sign-up by entering phone number from following page Vonage Refer-A-Friend Program (
    I did like that today morning but not received any email confirmation yet and showing pending when login online.

    Alright, Congrats Caliguy!!!
    I guess the emails and updates are sent by some kind of batch processing system. I got the email at 5:15 am, do you think that uscis guys would work that early...., duh....
    So cool down, you will get email soon.
    If you are doubtful, call uscis one more time, and confirm that your case is approved.

    How would it be to forward the media coverage links to all the attorneys so that they are aware of what is happening and also provide some kind of support or atleast get associated with IV. Also some members may take the initiative of posting these links to thier blogs so that every one will get to know about the IV through others blogs.

    Why is everybody so happy? He has just briefly and curtly informed in the message that flowers will be forwarded. They won't be sitting on my desk and embarrasing me. There is no acknowledgement of the issue or any empathy or compassion with the sufferers. Now even the press coverage will make USCIS director look good. I don't see what's the positive development here.

    I understand your enthusiasm of spreading +ve ness , but you need to also look at the practical implications on the situation. You are too criticizing and self-centric in what you beleive is the right thing to do.

    Things do not work the way you expect at times and backfire. All I am saying is to give it a second thought if you are not getting a huge turn out of people. If you believe you are the smartest ass in the forums, tell me how many people you beleive would come forward and write a letter to the president. It's nothing to do with whether you did it, but are taking off the apprehensions and motivate other people to do it.

    I agree with comments from walking_dude as it's inspiring and has a point. Get out of the shell and look at the world from a different perspective.

    I am pretty straight forward in my approach and do not know how to "sugarcoat". This is not my own organization, I am not the founder of this organization, I am just a member like you. While it is individual's choice of doing what they want to do, what I have noticed is that the negative energy does have cascading effect, especially when things do not happen, those who spread negative energy seem to influence people. Once again, this is individuals own perspective. The fact that things do not happen easily we have to blow trumphets into the ears of people. Like a member said sometime back "Eagles which never flew - would not dare to fly until they are pushed, and when they are pushed forcefully and dropped into the air - they automatically start flying".

    I have done what I can in the best of my capacity and continue to do so, I have considered IV as a self help group and also conducted meetings in the tri state area and continue to motivate people to make them feel a sense for the community.

    If you look at IV as YOUR organization - you can see why it is important to feel a sense for the community.

    The biggest issue our community faces today is the flow of negative energy. To quote examples, I was able to convince some friends for the rally in DC. Everything was going well, now when these people discussed with their collegues they were reluctant and did not show interest. The negative energy prompted my friends not to attend the rally because they felt that not many people are going for it and they tried to convince me out of IV. Such negative energy flows everywhere in the community and we have to overcome it. We can do it only by example.

    Look at all those other immigration forums where people are talking bad about IV including their administrators and their owners - people who follow those websites will hate IV and hinder all our efforts. Such negative energy when it is flowing at a greater level - will cause more and more damage to our community.

    It is simple - if you attack me for what I do - you are spreading negative energy - you are making a common man take a back seat and not encourage them to cooperate

    If I point at h1bmajdoor's posts - I am doing it just to make sure that the positive energy flows and negativity does not influence the community.

    it is a tough battle especially when you have thousands of daggers pointing at you ready to poke you.
    Well, you say I am a smartass - so be it.

    And if you do not support the community - stay away - why poke at someone who is doing something?

    Yes you are correct.
    I dont know about the Govt and bureaucrats and political aides - maybe they have big attention spans - but i know for a fact if someone in a corporate structure receives such a long letter as proposed originally- most would not have the patience to read it. Maybe, the handwritten and personalized part should be:

    1. I am XYZ - educated at ABC and work in DEF sector. Been in US legally for XX years - no able to buy a house, progress in career, start my company etc for not having visa certainity.
    2. While we wait anxiously for comprehensive reform - the following administrative fixes can speed up the processing backlog, specially for some countries like India, China etc


    Highly skilled immigrants have been a key stakeholder in keeping America competitive and your leadership in providing relief to this segment through these fixes would ensure that the best and brightest from around the world continue to be attracted to America.

    I am also enclosing a detailed write-up on this issue for your further reference and I look forward to your urgent attention in this matter.

    Yours truly.....

    Encl: as above

    Then the standard printed mailer can be an attachment. Keeps the main letter short and sweet.

    This may be a trash proposal - but is based on my close observance of senior management (and i am asssuming senior mannagement in corp world is not that different from politicians) - would increase the probability of the main message being read!

    I too had similar thoughts.. why would CIS/DOS stop keeping buffers? Is there any particular reason? Once they complete all 7/2007 applications I think it makes sense to move the date for a few months so they can accept applications. Also, remember there will be new monthly quota getting allocated to all categories. So to use those numbers should they not be progressing dates?


    The below number is depressing, however dont you think DOS/USCIS always believe in keeping buffer and they may push the dates somewhere into 2009 just to accept 485 filings?

    Why do think they will stop keeping any buffer?

    I asked this question several times on all the threads that are discussing the new USCIS data, but no one seems to be answering this, but I think it is important to make sure this wrinkle is sorted out...

    When they say inventory of 485 apps.. by any chance does it mean only the 485 that has been pre-adjudicated? I wish that was not the case.. but these numbers are too small to believe otherwise.. I hope one of the doctors in USCIS VB Theory (and I know there are a whole lot of them here on this forum) can sort this doubt quickly by throwing some nice logic.. But I would like to hear that so I am convinced with the quality of thi spread sheet.

    Very well said.
    1. DOS has to move fast in May to test if there are hidden demand (ppl who missed 07/2007 filing, porting, dependent filing). Those new filing cannot get be approved before October 2011. So they can move up to Nov/Dec 2006 safely in May. Also DOS/CIS, who communicate with each other for sure, will know they should process those pre-adjudicated cased first to clear the inventory.
    2. In June, July, August, they could be cautious but still move ahead up to March 2007.
    3. September is critical, as that time, if DOS doesn't want to waste any quota, (100% CIS cannot approve any cased filed in that month), they have to move to a point to get all quota used. Based on 12K/half year, or 12K/year from EB1, say 20K be safe this year from EB1. 7K from EB2 ROW as last year, 8K from EB3, 0 from FB (EB2 get only 10k/4 last year as 10K FB is divided by Eb1/2/3/4), and normal 2.8K for EB2 I/C each (6K total), there are total 41K possibly for EB2 I/C.
    4. Porting (6K this year), New filing (ppl who missed 07/07 with PD before 07/07), could have a negative efffect
    5. The inventory for EB2 I/C is about 34K before 07/2007 (based on DOS October/2010 and CIS inventory)
    6. This is very close. Will DOS move beyond 07/2007 a little to allow new filings (those won't get approved in Sept) and also make CIS easier to clear all 07/2007? This will be a judgement call. I am 50/50 on that.
    7. There are many factors that will play in the scenario.. But I am sure EB2 I/C 09/2011 PD will be pass
    May 2007 100%
    June 2007 80%
    July 2007 60%
    Sept 2007 30%
    Nov 2007 10%
    Dec 2007 or Current 0% (DOS/CIS learned the lesson)

    Visa allocation chief mentioned in AILA comment that USCIS knows visa usage pattern. Which means that they know pending I 140 for EB1 in pipeline and they also know that average time to get approve new I 140 is X months ( 4 months ) so they know if person files in May 2011 chances are rare that he/she can get GC from 2011 quota.I am not saying is that applicant can't get it but when u look at I 485 complexity and add scrutinity on EB1 I 140 its more than 4 months to get GC from start to finish without any RFE.

    That is why they are so confident to release quota now. which may bring date so much forward so that can attract new cases and move back dates to certain point in time. Specially this is how DOS does for all family based CP cases. When they think they have 10k visas coming they move dates to cover 15k out of which 12k may reply on time and they always have control to retrogress dates if they run out of visas.

    Big question is how far they want to go and get new cases. If they don't go upto Mid 2008 in next 1 year , Eb2 will loose some visas to EB3 and dates for EB2 will be "C" , if they go with some calculated guess and usage pattern + buffer they should go well into early 2009 with in next 1 year.

    I totally agree with you. H1b and employment based GC's are so intertwined that they are almost inseparable. For example, you can get H1b extension based on your pending/approved PERM labor or your approved I-140 application. So, any change to H1b will in some way impact the GC process. I'm all for closing the loop holes in H1b provided certain reforms are also made in the EB green card process- like removing per country quotas and may be give EAD upon I-140 approval.

    But do you believe they will do any good for us or they are really interest to protect us. Their aim is to divide and rule.

    It is received date stamp, what they do after receiving. They do it immediately on the same day.

    (area code 202) 663-1541 still reading June Visa bulletin. Did they revert back?

    Isn't is written somwhere that if the last day of a month falls on a saturday or a sunday then they accept the applications on the next working day even if it falls under next month.

    Last day of June is a saturday and so won't they have to accept the june applications on Monday???/
