NewsFlash! DOS Expected to Revise July Visa Bulletin
Posted Jun 29, 2007
We have received news from the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) that they have reliable information that the July Visa Bulletin will be revised on Monday, July 2nd, or Tuesday, July 3rd. This Visa Bulletin is expected to retrogress many of the categories that were announced as being "Current" for July. It is expected that at least some of the categories will become completely "unavailable." The reason for this is that the USCIS apparently engaged in extraordinary efforts to approve cases in June, once there was some forward movement of the Visa Bulletin. They did this to try to avoid the tide of cases expected in July. Each green card approval uses one visa number. If the numbers are all used for the year, then the DOS will issue a revised Visa Bulletin reflecting "unavailable" in the particular category or categories.
While there is no 100 percent assurance about this matter, we at the Murthy Law Firm were given a 95-98 percent confirmation of the expectation regarding the Visa Bulletin by a very reliable source. The most vulnerable categories, of course, are those that are typically the victims of retrogression: EB2 and EB3 for India, China, and (potentially) Mexico. If this unprecedented action should occur, it will mean is that the USCIS will reject I-485 cases based upon the anticipated Visa Bulletin revision, if it should, in fact indicate that visa numbers are not available in a particular category.
Legal Fight Brewing
There is substantial legal wrangling ongoing because of the anticipation of this unprecedented occurrence. The American Immigration Law Foundation (AILF) has announced plans to file suit against the USCIS for any cases rejected due to a revised Visa Bulletin.
It is difficult to formulate words in reaction to this matter. So, for the time being, we will let our clients and readers know that our full sympathies are with them, as they face yet another potential disappointment. We also let them know that we have been long-time supporters and contributors to AILF and we will fully do our part to fight what comes.

This is a plot of a well planned strategy.
Something is screwed up.....
Mexico has over 2000 cases in April 2001 yet its PD is May 1st 2001
India has less 500 cases in April 2001 yet its PD is Apr 15 2001
This along with CIS giving "bad/incorrect" data to IV is indication of someone's malicious intentions.
I appreciate IV's effort in getting FOIA executed and now working on aftermath of it.
For people who are angered with whats been going on in last couple of days. All I can say is to try volunteering for IV even for a month.
As it has been 85 days since my 485 reached in NSC and updates, so I called the 800-375-3283 and transfered to IO, she was very polite and told that now they are taking 120 days to issue receipts. ( ware...waa...how fast service)
As CAA dude post a 800-246-8253 this is Custom #. (lol)
So they started to say now all we have to wait for another 30 days, there is no other way to get the receipt #, she said call once in a week if u are lucky, u may get ur receipt #,
yes sending fax, e-mails, create a query this make sence to invistigate the pending application.
Ok again ur count down starts against 120 days..........

If husband-wife are both on individual h1bs, and they want to file, say, based on the husband's labor/I-140 application, then should they be submitting an employment letter for the husband and copy of his employment letter for the wife? Or, do they need to submit the wife's own employment letter along with his applicaiton since she is also individually employed on an H1b?
* Employment Letter - on employer's letterhead. This letter should confirm that the job on which the visa petition is based is available to you and it should mention your salary.
.. I think Pranju answered this question.... seems like we have to submit the employment letter of the person whose petition is being used to apply for the 485. Thanks!
1. I have a valid H1b visa stamped on passport till June 2007. I and my spouse have EAD and AP as well. Upon my return from India in Dec 2006 the Immigration Officer at the POE did not let us use our h visas, H1 for me and H4 for my spouse and instead asked us to use AP to enter into USA and he stamped my AP and the I-94 showing my entrance as Parole and valid till Jan 22, 2007 ( My AP was valid till that date only). He said that I am not cancelling your h1. What does it mean? Am I no longer on H1 visa? What would happen after Jan 22, 2007 when my parole expires? I have filed for a new AP though but have not recieved it so far.
2. My and my spouse's EAD is expiring on Jan 22, 2007. We filed for the EADs in Nov and waiting for it. In the mean time we got a notice for finger prints. After the finger prints, our notices were stamped with the date on it. The stamp reads as "LIFE ACT PROCESSING STAMP" where as on all the previous occassions of finger printing, the stamp would read as " BIOMETRICS PROCESSING STAMP". Moreover as I have registered on line to check the status of my petitions, usually after the finger prints the date used to change when some thing happens to one's file like getting the finger printing done etc. but this time nothing changed and the date is showing up the same when I initially submitted my application.
Any Idea about this folks??? Time is running out for me.
That's not correct. FBI cannot deny somebody a visa JUST BECAUSE they cannot do their job in a TIMELY FASHION. Law states that "YOU ARE GUILTY ONLY WHEN ITS PROVEN"
Also, Please keep in mind there are over 12 MILLION ILLEGALS WITH NO RECORD!
I hope it helps.

bestofall - is right.
Even I am chatting with the customer rep, I have asked many questions about the artes and every time the rep said there is no charge for INDIA, we can call any type of network which is absolutely free.
Please see the below few key replies from the chat person
With Vonage World, you will have unlimited calling to landlines and cell phones in India.
That will include all types of phones and numbers,
You can only see that the chart displays the rate per minute that you would have without Vonage World plan. We do still have plans that do not include India for free therefore we need to keep the list specific to clarify the rate per minute without Vonage World.
I can assure you that with Vonage World, ALL numbers in India will be included with no additional rate per minute.
if the VB bulletin is indeed "retrogressed" to Pre madness - back to what was supposed to be the next jump from June 2003 (perhaps 6 months or more for EB3 and 2005 for EB2), this would actually be a good thing in my opinion.
What they did by making the VB current is going to have serious consequences a few months down the line. People who have been waiting for years may still not get their turn in line, while others simply jump ahead and take away the visa numbers. People are excited at the short term benefits of EAD/AP but we must look at the long term effects also.
I believe (and im entitled to my own beliefs ) that if anything, USCIS/DOS have actually finally figured out their mistake of making everything current and are now back tracking to what would be a decent situation instead of the floodgates being opened. I dont believe it has anything to do with conspiracy theories or CIR or any such thing.
And btw - i would be one of those people who spent money to get ready for the floodgates and i would also be one of those that gets stuck!

subject should read "have you done any research"?
It amazes me that we qualified and professional people all buy in to what ever we read on the internet, and never perform our own research.
The source is often cited as The Awakening Ray, Vol. 4 No. 5, The Gnostic Centre Reproduced in Niti issue of April, 2002 at p. 10 a periodic publication of Bharat Vikas Parishad, Delhi.
It is a general misconception that this is a part of Lord McCauley’s speech to British Parliament because Lord McCauley arrived in India on 10th June 1834 and returned to England in early 1838. If in 1835 he was in India then how could he have delivered a speech in the British Parliament. Let me also add that he arrived in India by a 3 month long journey by ship so there is no chance that the Lord made a quick visit to England for delivering this speech.
I also found this interesting.
A dubious quotation, a controversial reputation: the merits of Lord Macaulay
Koenraad Elst discovers through a wrong quotation attributed to Lord Macaulay how right the anglicizer of Indian culture was, or at least how right his intentions were, subjectively.
Here's a question for you it's 2008, what does a statement made in 1835 have to do with immigration into the USA?
For example 27th Oct 1838 the Missouri Governor (LW Boggs) issued extermination order against Mormons allowing for Mormons to be shot on sight. But Mitt Romney is safe to campaign there because the order was rescinded on 25th June 1976
It's 2008 people and this is a USA immigration forum, not the anti-British forum.

Same here, i got a similar response too... If they are true to their words abt under review, we shud b fine...
But the problem is, they mite b stating this under review for all cases to avoid repeated requests and hence the issue..
Is ur case also at NSC?
How has ur luck been with the POJ method? Have u always recvd the same informn from all IOs?
I always get a different response wen i talk to an IO at NSC...

Visa Numbers Available for both AOS & CP after using sure shot cases (140,000-20,000) = 120,000
Additional Visa numbers will be available for categories (EB2 I/C + EB3 I/C/M/P/ROW) all other categories will be current.
Because there are 62,840 EB3 pending for the rest of the world I doubt any additional numbers(spill) would
be given to EB3I/C/P/M spill would be used by EB3 ROW ???? Correct me if I am wrong
Of the additional visa numbers available after EB3 ROW uses it, max how many can be allocated to India and China EB2 is the question.......? Can someone answer this based on the max limit per country and per category???
makeup Los Angeles Dodgers exploit
12,000 extra visas available to EB2 at the end of second Fisc qtr would be excellent !!
Worst case I think they'll have to match EB2 India with the EB2 China date before they take it even further in the coming months for the both the countries.

even if the taxes are slightly more, vonage gives you 2 months free (save $50) and ships you adapter free, no shipping and activation with a referral. Your referrer gets 2 months free too. If you put this in to mathematics, vonage may come out cheaper than teleblend. Additonally its much more established and bigger VOIP provider.
However teleblend now offers unlimited US, Canada etc only for $99 for 1 year. This is unbeatable as it comes out roughly $8 per month. Good option to consider for those who do not need unlimited india plan.

My Priority date is Jan 2004, EB3-India category and i have an approved I-140 and have applied my 485 during July 07. I have sent my EAD and AP for renewal which expire in last week of September. My spouse is in EB2-India having pd Dec 2005, also applied I-485 (140 is approved) during July 07 and has applied for EAD and AP renewal, which expire in last week of October. We both applied independently and are using our H1bs and not EAds.
Since my spouse's PD is going to be current in August 2008, I was planning on applying for a second 485 as a dependent on my spouse's application.
I know that two 485 applications causes issues. I want your recommendation and also will my application affect my wife's processing time or create issues for her.
Ron's reply -
You don't need to file a new I-485. Make the CIS aware of your spouse's case and your eligibility under it as a dependent. Ask them to cross reference to the two cases.
You can follow this thread in the following link - http://www.immigration-information.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5689
Also has anyone tried this approach and Also does anyone has expeirence being Ron's client?
PS: PD: July 2001 and waiting approx 8 years for GC where my friends are applying for citizenship, if they choose to do so. :)
Question is that there are so many July 2 filers (including me) who have not got any response yet. Therefore, it is not an isolated case. I don't know if emailing to the Director does any good, as long as USCIS keeps admitting that they have not yet sent all receipts (inspite of weekly bulletins). Until 90 days are over, I guess, USCIS will be unresponsive to individual inquiries.
