Topic: NYT strikes again H4

Sir, while I'm a proponent of H1B (having been on it myself), your statement, categorically is not true. There is certainly a need for specialized skills but the case of Disney is a perfect example of abuse i.e. they were letting the American workers go and hiring folks on H1B i.e. specifically for IT sector.

I think people blame the workers, however, I believe it is the corporations making these decisions to cut costs i.e. prioritizing hiring foreign nationals over native born populations. The argument is more nuanced that we'd like to believe.

Yes, in the English language you can use confusing and confused interchangeably, I suggest you start heading back to English for immigrants 101.



Look at the other comments on the thread and look at yourself. Now look at the comments again and look at yourself again. If you aren't humbled then seek help. Admittedly, I've wasted some of my time looking at your other comments (in your profile) and you seem to be filled with arrogance and vitriol. I can't imagine you're a happy person. Please do seek some help, for your own sake.

Topic: With 70 years GC wait this is your only option

If we're being persnickety then I'm happy to provide one my final response on this topic. In my opinion, 8 months - 1.5 years is a thing of the past, given the current political climate. With applications are being scrutinized, background checks are taking longer, officers/offices are being backlogged/overloaded, additional procedures being added i.e. interview requirements for EB candidates and massive increase in the amount of RFE's. All these factors add to the process/timeline dramatically, even for highly qualified candidates. Hence my comment, you'll be lucky to have everything done 'within' 2 years.

Topic: 401(K) Contribution?

It's not that straight forward. You'll have to do a bit more homework. You'll be liable for penalty (for sure) but also consider capital gains tax. Also, there are other ways get money i.e. loan against 401k and what not. Happy searching.

it should be possible in EB-1...

I had already acknowledged that possibility and mentioned it in my response (This would be really quick even for an EB1 candidate.)

Topic: With 70 years GC wait this is your only option


yes there is very little to no wait time specially for indian nationals.......folks who file in 2018 should expect GC no later than 2020, anyone who says otherwise is only spreading fear mongering....



While 70 years is an exaggeration, you're way off to think that Indian nations would apply for a GC in 2018 and receive it in 2020. This would be really quick even for an EB1 candidate. It took me almost 13 years to get mine (applied in 2005), so the wait times are really that long and they have only gotten worse since.

You'd be better served if you share the location. Although you can hire any attorney, having geographic accessibility would be of huge benefit.

Topic: 401(K) Contribution?


I am wondering for an average salaried person with 2 kids, would paying taxes now and using roth or paying taxes later and going the traditional route be better?

That's not a simple answer. It all depends on the contributions you make, lifestyle you want to lead, liability for other income/taxes post 60, unique needs i.e. sick parents/child, contribution to 529 plan i.e. education savings account for kids.

Topic: 401(K) Contribution?


we have to pay taxes on 401K money when we withdraw after 60. what ever tax bracket we fall into at that time, we have to pay that tax percentage accordingly. that's why some people choose Roth IRA contribution from starting but it has less maximum contribution amount per year. Roth IRA contribution is after taxes contribution so you pay taxes now and save/invest and you do not need to pay taxes while you withdraw at retirement.

Withdrawing at age of 60 or before from other country process is little hassle by converting 401K to IRA and moving funds from USA to India all that work. we are not sure rules may change in future too about 401K withdrawing from other country at retirement age or before.



FYI - Your response implies that you can only take advantage of a Roth contribution to an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) with a limit of $5,500 for year 2018. Please be aware of the investment vehicle - Roth 401k. It's the same concept i.e. put in money post tax and the appreciation is free of capital gains tax, when your withdraw post 60. The limit for traditional 401k and Roth 401k is the same i.e. $18,500 for tax year 2018. And there shouldn't be any hassles withdrawing or converting to IRA. It's your money, you invested in the stock market and you've already paid the taxes on it. With that said, I hope other people would do their homework on financial websites and speak to an expert rather than solely relying on this forum. Good luck to all!

Topic: The New York Times article on the backlog and H4 EAD issues


It is a pathetic article by a reporter who has zero understanding about how you people are gaming the visa rules.
Someone is high skilled when that person has publications and patents which results in employment generation for the citizens of this country. The person in this article, his spouse and his other family persons have not done anything like this. Infact none of you have any such skills. All you guys are doing is feeding like parasite on jobs that actually belongs to hard working american workers and their spouses.
If the people of your country are in so much of plight then why dont you leave this country. After all you are so high skilled that it should not be a problem for you people to settle and thrive in any part of this planet.
Living in expense house doesnt imply that someone is having high income. One can get loan with zero down these days. Also if this guy is having such a high income why would he beg for spousal visa.
Only things that you people bring to this country are ignorance, politics, bullying attitude at workplace, improper behavior towards women and children, a false sense of being superior than us, lies and inflict virus of your race to our society.



You're letting vitriol magnify your ignorance. Thankfully, your definition of high ('high skilled when that person has publications and patents') is not a rule set or followed by USCIS. I contemplated writing a detailed response to refute your incoherent rant, but I figured you're beyond help. Good luck and get the help you most certainly need.

Topic: The New York Times article on the backlog and H4 EAD issues

Congratulations on understanding the nuance and laying your thoughts out coherently. Most people here go off on a tangent and miss the underlying issue. H1B is reserved for 'High Skilled' labor and by definition should afford higher wages. Add to that, if you live in an expensive area i.e. CA, NY etc., companies have to pay a higher salary to compete for the best talent.

Unfortunately, given the current political climate, there is no political upside for Republicans to pass any legal immigration reform, let alone illegal. They are happy to give companies tax cuts to send jobs overseas but bringing in immigrants is a no-no cause it affects the 'culture'. The system is setup to extract as much benefit i.e. employer/employee taxes, entitlements (SSN/Medicare/Medicaid) from foreign workers and keep them in the limbo for their claim. With that said, most citizens of backlog counties are (or at least should be) aware of the challenges and plan their life goals accordingly. It's not an easy fight but my best wishes to everyone in that boat. I've been there.

Topic: The New York Times article on the backlog and H4 EAD issues


I agree, I used to travel to Midwest for work, some people who earn a gross income of $4800 per month were considered upper middle class, for few its a dream. One thing for sure is that most of the Indians are so happy to show their wealth. Not sure how does it help in reality.



Let me perhaps show you a different perspective. When reporters from NYTimes (or any good journalistic outlet) write about an issue, they must provide details. The details are what completes/colors the picture. So it may be less a matter of 'Indians happy to show their wealth' but more so their story not being published without the details. Keep in mind, sometimes the story may not get published even after divulging all the details. I've gone through this rigmarole myself and even though I'm on the other side now, I most certainly empathize.

p.s. As a side note, we all see legitimate candidates stuck in the line for decades but take a quick glance on the EB1C thread. 90% of the contributors lack basic writing skills and they're being granted (or at least hoping) become permanent residence as 'International Managers'.

You will have to start the GC process again under IT (i.e. New PERM and I-140) and you can port your PD from the previous application.

Topic: Premium , no decision yet on my case

Hi there, thanks for checking in. My EB2 case didn't get a decision. The company that filed my EB2 turned out to be fraudulent and USCIS sent them a notice stating that they have ceased ALL fees pertaining to the EB2 case filed. I came to know soon (2-3 months) after I'd applied that USCIS will not issue me a decision. I bet the attorney received the notice sooner but had no desire to keep me in the loop. I just found myself dealing with some unethical folks.

However, thankfully, my EB3 application got approved and I received my green card in the first week or December.

If you haven't received a decision on the I-140 in premium processing, chances are that your company is being scrutinized by USCIS. Hope it helps.

Topic: EB3 India - Post RFEs for future priority dates

Hey rim11, if your supp J is approved, then I'm pretty sure your green card has been approved. It's only a procedural matter from here. I got my notification letter within 1 week of approval and an additional week for the actual green card. I just traveled outside the US and used the machine for immigration check-in, with no issues. I'm really happy for you. Hope things are made official soon.

If I were you, I wouldn't worry about it too much. It took them exactly 60 days from the interview date to approve my case. I got the approval notice and the actual card in less than a 2 weeks. Good luck.
