    This is a good thing.
    These consulting companies who were abusing the visa will be taught a lesson.

    People used to complain a lot about desi companies and now when USCIS has finally become tough they are complaining about it.

    You cannot have it both ways.

    The same RFE is also being issued to companies like Accenture, Deloitte and IBM consulting as long as the keyword "technology services" appears in the petition. How about that? This is not 2nd or 3rd hand news, but the couple of guys and a girl sitting in the cubicles adjacent to mine who work for Deloitte got the same standard RFE. Heck, you can't call them "cheap" labor as most of them drive Beemers or Audis and one of them also has a Masters from Caltech (probably better qualified than you or me Mr. Teli or any of the USCs we have working at the company :rolleyes:)

    shocked to learn that the wait is getting longer! now I am truly SHOCKED!
    "Jo poora doob gava, usko thandee nahin laagva re!"
    poorly translates to english "Does it get any colder, for one who is already drowned?"
    Shocked to learn that even after CIR or SKIL passes, we will have to wait 8 yrs to get our GCs. If that wasn't shocking I wonder what else would be:confused:
    In your example, its like saving him from drowning, giving him first aid and then throwing him to the sharks!!!

    What is lobbying and is it legal?
    As per the definition at Wikipedia, Lobbying is the practice of private advocacy with the goal of influencing a governing body by promoting a point of view that is conducive to an individual's or organization's goals. more information can be found here

    It is 100% legal and is in fact the preferred way of getting things done by most corporations. Corporations like Microsoft, Dell, Yahoo, Google etc have all used lobbying in the past and in fact I would go as far as saying that every Fortune 1000 firm has used lobbying at one point of time or another. Just search for any company name and the word lobbying on Google and you'll see what we are talking about

    What has lobbying got to do with the Immigration Bill?

    As we know from part III, Senator Specter will be creating a markup of the Senate Immigration Bill. This may/may not contain the provisions that the immigrant community is looking for.

    The differennt bills that are being considered for the markup are McCain Kennedy bill, Cornyn Kyl bill, the Chuck Hagel Bill and a few others

    This document by AILA compares the various versions of the bill in different categories This also considers a markup of Senator Specter which is unofficial at the moment. This means that until it gets officially presented to the Judiciary Committee for review, it could change anytime.

    This markup already seems to contain the provisions we need, what are we still worried about?

    If you have read my post on S.1932, you would know that a bill can be amended at multiple stages.

    1) Senator Specter could change his markup, after all he has not come out with an official version. Do not forget that the link above refers to an unofficial version of the markup. As per unconfirmed reports, the Chairman's markup could be out anytime between now and mid-march and a lot of things could change in the mean time

    2) Assuming that the markup does contain the provisions that we as immigrants are fighting for, any judiciary committee member can propose an amendment to the bill which could result in a an unwanted change. A case in point is the amendment that Senator Diane Feinstein proposed during S.1932 which reduced the increase in H1B visas from 60,000 to 30,000. Imagine if a senator brings in an amendment that strips off all the provisions for legal immigration!

    3) If the bill does not have strong support within the Judiciary committee, it could be voted out and it becomes history

    4) Assuming that the bill passes through the above steps, it is presented to the full Senate for a debate and vote. Here too any member of the senate can propose an amendment to the bill and the house votes on it. A case in point is the Byrd Amendment which was introduced by Senate Byrd from Virginia which sought to drop sections 8001 and 8002 from the S.1932. This was defeated by the a margin of 84-15 but remember that if it had enough support, S.1932 would have ended here

    5) Once the bill passes with the immigration provisions in the Senate, it is presented to a joint conference committee where a few senators and a few congressmen deliberate on which sections to include int he conference bill from among the House bill and the Senate bill. Remember that the house bill has already been passed (HR.4437) and it does not contain any immigration provisions. The House members could again force the senate representatives to drop the immigration provisions. The S.1932 bill's pro-immigration sections got dropped precisely at this juncture

    So as can be seen, there are various stumbling blocks towards achieving a favorable bill.

    The only way we can ensure that the pro-immigrant provisions do not get ignored or sacrificed is by lobbying. By lobbying we can ensure that the right folks at the right places can understand our concern and empathize with us.

    A lobbying firm can ensure that we send a consistent and effective message to the right people. As mentioned earlier, some of the lobbying firms have ex-Congressmen and ex-Senators on their boards. These folks have a great working relationship with the current senators and congressmen. These lobbyists can not only get our issues be heard by the powers, they can possibly influence them by using some political capital

    Why can't we just contact the lawmakers directly and tell them about it? Why spend money for lobbyists?

    We can definitely try doing this ourselves. This is a free country and nothing stops us from doing so. Unfortunately the effectiveness of such a method is questionable.

    During S.1932 proceedings, many members of this forum contacted their local congressmen and senators and asked for appointments. Many also conveyed their views to the staff and many also faxed their views in. Unfortunately the bill passed without the pro-immigration provisions. The message was not conveyed strongly enough and it was conveyed as individuals and not a group.

    It was realized that unless we present our case the way Washington, DC is used to seeing it (by hiring lobbyists), the message will not get through.

    Lobbyists have direct access to the actual congressmen and senators while the most we can hope is getting a key staff member's attention.

    A lobbyist can influence a house member, while we can only hope that the staff members pass our views to the house member.

    We do not know which members are really the ones to target and key decision makers and we might end up concentrating on the wrong house members. A lobbyist can help us identify these key members.

    All in all, a lobbyist can help us use our energy in the right way and not end up wasting it doing frivolous things and ultimately help us achieve our dreams

    And do not forget that some of the anti-immigration groups like numbersusa already have full time lobbyists working for them in DC. If we are to even put up a decent fight against these very dedicated anti-immigrant forces, we need to get help from a professional lobbying firm

    It�s a serious issue which can affect many of us, please act now and send letters (letter formats and everything else is ready in the thread quoted above). It will only take a few minutes of your time.

    State chapter leader,
    Please try to bring attention of your state members to this IV core approved effort.

    Thank you.

    Assuming that one has file for the I-485 - just wanted to clarify that EAD/AP can be filed even if the priority dates are not current. In other words, EAD/AP has no dependency on the priority date being current.


    PD is applicable only to 485 and has no bearing on EAD and AP. You can always apply for EAD and AP if you already have a 485 receipt.

    Most likely, I might be moving into a new apartment next month. My EAD and AP are due for filing for extensions. Is it really necessary to file EAD and AP renewals in continuity? Can I wait and file the renewals after I move and have the new address information? This means that I might not get the renewed EAD and AP before my previous ones expire. I am currenly on H1-B and have not used EAD and not planning to use EAD and AP in near future.
    Any help is really appreciated.

    Friends, can someone help answer a few questions for considering filed I-485 and adding spouse at the later. I am planning to get married in the January or february time frame in India. I have read at several places that one can add spouse anytime BEFORE 485 APPROVAL. I work on H1B, I am from India and my priority date is Oct 06 with approved EAD and I 485 pending. I have some specific questions in case my priority date becomes current. My question is -

    1. Can I travel and enter on my H1 even if my AP is approved/pending?
    2. Is it safer to travel on AP even if I have a valid/invalid H1 stamped on my passport?
    3. Can my wife enter on H4 and then we add her name to 485 when she is in US?

    Thanks for any/all additional help you can provide with my scenario. I can be flexible if someone has any suggestions that can help my case.

    Of course I will be taking my lawyer's advice and use your suggestions to enchance my knowledge and present some scenarios to the lawyer.

    Thanks for all your help!!

    1. Can I travel and enter on my H1 even if my AP is approved/pending?

    Yes, you can travel and enter into USA on your H1 visa even if your AP is approved or pending as long as your visa has a valid stamping.

    2. Is it safer to travel on AP even if I have a valid/invalid H1 stamped on my passport?

    If you have an invalid H1 stamping on your passport, then AP is the only way to enter into USA. On the other hand, If you have a valid stamping and also have an approved AP, you can use either H1 or AP to enter into USA.

    3. Can my wife enter on H4 and then we add her name to 485 when she is in US?
    If you have a valid H1 Visa, your wife can enter on H4. Regarding adding your wife's name to your 485 case, I am not sure, but I believe you have to wait until your PD becomes current.

    Consulting an attorney is the best option, I believe. Good luck!

    I know someone who did not pay the bill but returned to US without any questions

    disclaimer: may vary from case to case

    My parents visited here in US last year. Unfortunately my mother got high fever and admitted in hospital giving me bill of 30000$.

    Insurance company denied my claims as pre existing condition. I tried several ways to convince insurance company but all in vain.

    I negotiated with hospital to pay 15000 and paid off hospital bill.

    I also got a doctor bill later and that went to collections. I didnt pay doctor bill (500 dollars) till today.

    Does this 500 dollar collection notice will effect my mothers next visit?
    If I pay now does it matter anyway?
    Is there any chance of deportation?

    Please advice...

    not a red-dotter - but i do believe we should leave the forums open to talk not just about immigration but also immigrant related issues.

    this will help draw more people towards IV who can then contribute to IV core agenda in any way feasible for them.

    also will motivate people to hang around IV even once they get their GCs or Citizenship.

    I got 2 red dots for this .....Crazy people
