Can anyone get in touch with Sheela Murthy? She is reputed and she might post it on her website.
wallpaper Charlie Sheen of course.
This is something really cheap of you people to think.....
I read a lot of posts where they mentioned that chuck should proceed with the bill.... so that small desi companies dont perish and that will stop abusing the H1B program...
I really dont understand that no one condemed that remark.. Guys who work in big companies are safe by this rule... So what happens to the one sustaining the so called abuses and remaining intact to get their GC's
No wonder we are not able to make progress as much as those illegal immi's do...
Way to go guys... This kind of spirit will take us to great highs

It should read as, "There are more than half million highly-skilled legal immigrants already working productively in the United States who find themselves trapped in a system that is taking years longer than intended.
Pls feel free to change the text of the letter and personalize it if you wish. If you wish to include your story and attach a photo copy of your degrees, patents, awards, please do so. Just make sure to include the provisions we are trying to push.
If you are handwriting the letter, your writing should be legible.. If nobody can read your writing, then it will defeat the purpose. Write the letter in such a way that the key points are easy to read. If you would like to use rules, bold text, highlighters etc... go ahead and do it.
We all need to be as creative as possible to make this campaign a success.

So far We ( H1B extension -- 3rd time and my wife - H4( 2nd Time), have not received the passports. I already postponed our date of travel to Feb 5th. Looks like I have to postpone again.
Calling VFS daily to hear the same news.. Passports not been handed over VFS. The VISA is still under process.
Called Consulate Twice ... they say they are doing security checks..
for how long???
Hi, Vamsi, All,
I just called the Consulate for the umpteenth time in 4 weeks. The lady was very rude, and did not even listen to my questions. Here is how it went:
Her: Consular Section
Me: Good Afternoon madam.
Me: I want to know the procedure to withdraw a visa application.
Her: You can send an email to us, stating that you need to withdraw the application, stating I-797 details.
Me: Ok. Do I need to submit anything else with the email?
Her: You need to submit a copy of the I-797 and a letter signed in original by you.
Me: But how can I sign the email?
Her: You cannot just email. We need original signed letter in courier. (note she said email before).
Me: And how much time does it take for the passports to return once you receive that letter?
Her: 3-4 business days. Ok. (she is about to hang up).
Me: (In a hurry) Madam I had one more question for you. Would you be able to track my passport also? It has been over a month since the visa interview, and we are still waiting for the passports.
Her: It is (couldnt hear) PIMS (couldnt hear).
Me: So has it been processed already, or is it in PIMS processing still?
Her: It is in PIMS. (wow, what a short answer).
Me: Can you tell me where is it stuck? May be I can get help from the company lawyer?
Her: Sir, you have to wait for the administrative processing to finish. I cant give you any specific details as to what is going on. You just have to wait. If you dont want to wait, you can withdraw the application. (she hangs up. Thats right, she hung up like this!)
My company lawyer suggests that I withdraw the application, and use the AP to get back. Now I am not sure if they will return the passports faster than they will stamp them. What a mess!!!!
Help dear God!
Thank you sir. If nothing else moves forward on this Front , we have Bouquets :-)
hair But how will Charlie Sheen
Oh, did that comment on Brahma and Saraswati incest hurt you? tsk, tsk, tsk.. too bad.
Well, you should have read and responded to the comment before that before pretending to be hurt about my response. I didn't start it.
If you are ready to make such bigoted comment, NEVER expect that you can get away that. Believe me, internet is limitless and I can shovel dirt about India in this forum, if I want to with a google search(which is not my intent here)
I raised SR for my case on 9/2 and no response until today morning and raised SR for my wife yesterday night. No changes to my wife application.
I asked my attorney sending an e-mail for TSC streamline process and I do not know whether he acted on it or not.
Good luck every one who are waiting for approval

All receipt numbers start with SRC******
This is the happiest day since July 17 for us....
I am very very hopeful that you guys will get it. Check your bacnk too today.
Do you think USCIS came to know about your "List compilation" activity and hence your receipt......I think I should take over list compilation now :p
Happy for you man...
house If it#39;s the Charlie Sheen
tattoo During one of his Sheen#39;s
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:)
They haven't mentioned there whether dependents are included or not. So multiplying by 2.1 is probably not correct nor wrong at this point. I would think dependents are included in this. Everybody needs to file an I-485 I presume and they are just counting the pending ones.

Can you tell us more about communicating to ALIF? Is it via email?
I think all the folks who visit this thread must send out a complaint.
Also please contact your attorneys and tell them to complain on this half baked PIMS implementation.
My wife received her approval email from Mumbai consulate yesterday. When I contacted my attorney, he asked that after she returns to the US, to send him more details and he will lodge a complaint with the DOS through his liaison.
dresses But Charlie Says: #39;Winning#39;
After all, every one is equally concerned on such a sensitive issue.
I saw posts of several members extremely skeptical of the whole idea, even went on calling it stupid, crazy and useless. Some made mockery suggesting sending dead fish etc. I don't see any more posts from them.
Keeping mum now are we, eh?:rolleyes:
makeup How Charlie Sheen#39;s tour might
(1) horizontal spill if visas available
(2) vertical spill for visas not required
The language in (2) is much stronger. A visa number that is still available cannot be required at the same time. So one could argue that DOS is now misinterpreting the law.
Everyone wants to interpret the law as per their wish. It is nature. However, there is a unbiased place to find the solution for right interpretation. That is called court. Discussing, how DOS/USCIS should interpret the (INA) law in this forum will not yield any result. Even if you contat DOS/USCIS, they will simply say "this is what we understand the law, we have no rights to change the law". Flower or letter campain will not work. If you feel the interpretation is wrong, the only solution is court.
My recomendation is simple. To end retorgression in EB3, it just need more the number of visa. Current INA will not help EB3, and so DOS/USCIS. Only law makers can help to change the situation, by adding appropirate provisions in INA to create more numbers in EB3. Contact law makers. This is the good way of spending your effort. USCIS/DOS does not have enough power to change the law.

Harris Miller all but declares run for Virginia seat held by Republican George Allen.
By Eric Chabrow
Jan 5, 2006 04:05 PM
The chief voice for American IT vendors in Washington is seeking to switch sides and become a target of Capitol Hill lobbyists.
Harris Miller, 54, this week quit his job for the past 10� years as president of the Information Technology Association of America�the lobbying arm of the IT industry�to run for the U.S. Senate from Virginia. A Democrat, Miller is eying the seat held by Republican George Allen. Miller says he'll make an official announcement on whether he'll run next week. But in a telephone interview, Miller sounded like a candidate. He already reserved a domain name for his campaign: miller2006.org.
Miller says top Virginia political leaders, including the retiring and popular Virginia Gov. Mark Warner, a former high-tech executive who's mulling a run for president, urged him to run for the Senate.
As head of the ITAA, Miller has lobbied Congress to liberalize laws such as the H-1B visa program to allow a greater number of foreign IT workers to be employed in the United States, as well as opposed efforts to penalize American businesses from outsourcing work overseas. Miller's positions on these matters have been attacked by some members of the liberal wing of the Democrat Party who seek to limit the importing of IT workers and the exporting of IT jobs as a way to protect American jobs.
But Miller suggests his views have been misinterpreted by critics, saying he isn't pro- or anti-outsourcing, but recognizes that American businesses operate worldwide and have the right to hire workers in countries where they conduct business. Placing limits on outsourcing could hurt efforts to open foreign markets to American IT wares, he contends.
Instead, government should back programs that encourage the creation of new IT jobs in the United States. For instance, he says he's a long-time advocate of programs to bring broadband and other high technologies to American rural areas as a way to attract IT jobs to those areas. He cites a Warner administration program to create hundreds of high-tech jobs by providing broadband Internet connections to businesses in southwest Virginia. "Five years ago, it was not an option, the area didn't have access to the Internet and technology, and those jobs might have gone to Mexico, India, or China," Miller says.
Miller says the United States isn't investing enough in education and worker retraining, as well as IT research and development and broadband, adding that America has fallen behind some other countries. If elected, he says he'd push for increased investments in these areas. "We have to figure out how to run faster, jump higher than our competitors," he says.
Before joining the ITAA, Miller ran a consulting and lobbying firm in Washington, and served as deputy director of personnel management for Congressional relations in the Carter administration.
Replacing Miller as interim ITAA president is Robert Laurence, who had been Sybase VP of public sector.
hairstyles Bieksa got the game-winning
Looks like Rolling_Flood has not yet voted on this poll. I thought he will be the first Yes for this poll.
Are you guys planning to file separate lawsuits?
Please contact IO using POJ method or send a follow up email to your service center asking about your PD and categorisation. Once you know what is in their system (EB2 or EB3 ?) , then you can follow up with them to rectify it.
AFAIK, in inter-filling,applicant has to do lot of followups to get correct PD on their file.
