Topic: Goodlatte bill coming today - Any details ?


Looks like rerouting 50K diversity visas to TPS was tossed out - https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-at...

“Trump attacks protections for immigrants from ‘shithole’ countries in Oval Office meeting”

That is why I like Trump, he backed the house version of the bill 55K additional visas to EB instead of senate version that give 50K visas to TPS.

Topic: GC's for skilled to increase - Bill


//Only increases per year GCs to 9940 per country.// WRONG!!!!

Currently we have 140k & 7.1% country quota that is 9940/country..
This bill increases total to 195k & removes 7.1% country quota and gives a hard number which is 9940.
7.1% of 195k is 13650! But this bill limits it to 9940!
Again , i repeat., its not a "INCREASE" to 9940., despite increase in total EB visa numbers, there is a decrease in % per country. Its hard set to 9940 and not 7.1% anymore!

grrrr!
This is gross injustice! Someone wanted to remove country quota.. these guys are doubling down on torturing us!


If you think we will get lot of SO from eb2 & eb3 (horizontally) because of increase from 40.4k to 58.373/ eb category.. and this numeric hard limit wont bother us.. you are wrong.
Just 1 piece of information , currently daca cant apply for legal gc.. because they are illegal..
Think about it , if this bill passes , all 800k become eligible to apply for legal work based gc..
other than India/China/Philippines which country is backlogged on eb?

eb2 or eb3 , whichever category they apply , they will most likely be current if they are not from mexico
and no spillover for us..





7.1 % replacement in there is for EB4 and EB5, their numbers are not increased. Country limit is 7% of 195,000 it is not broken down for category. EB1, EB2 and EB3 get 18,333 increased each. The bill does not say anything about country limit. It just says how many goes for each category.

Topic: Goodlatte bill coming today - Any details ?

I am not sure where you are referring that, but EB1, EB2 and EB3 numbers are increasing from 40,040 to 58,733.
EB4 and EB5 are not changing, they stay the same ( 7.1% 140,00 = 9940), just change from % to hard number .

Refer to the page 21 of the bill text

Numerical Worldwide Limit for EB New = 175000 let's call it EBWLN (new) and the old limit at EB as EBWLO (140,000)
-----------------------------------------
Worldwide-EB4New=Religious/Ministers=7.1% of EBWLO (Hard capped at 9940 by Goodlatte)
Worldwide-EB5New=Investors=7.1% of EBWLO (Hard capped at 9940 by Goodlatte)
Worldwide-EB1New=EBWLN*28.6%= 50050 + Spillover/Unused from EB4New/EB5New (earlier this number was 40040 +Spillover)
Worldwide-EB2New=EBWLN*28.6%= 50050 + Spillover/Unused from EB1New (earlier this number was 40040 +Spillover)
Worldwide-EB3New=EBWLN*28.6%= 50050 + Spillover/Unused from EB2New (earlier this number was 40040 +Spillover)

The annual worldwide level for All categories of permanent immigration is 675,000 LPRs
INA establishes per-country levels, or country caps, at 7% of the worldwide level in categories other than EB.

Employment-based preference allocations may exceed the 7% per-country limit within the overall level of 140,000 annually.
(Page 9 of Reference#1) , This is going to be 175,000 by Goodlatte

Which means Guaranteed additional 10,010 Green cards to each EB1/2/3 category for India, It wil be good unless EB1C eats it all

The summer you are referring there, increase from 120,000 to 175,000 is for EB1,Eb2 and EB3 only, it did not include EB4 and EB5.

Here is the bill text, refer to the page 21, it is 18,333 increase for each of EB1, EB2 and EB3 categories

Topic: Goodlatte bill coming today - Any details ?

Clarification on per-country limit:
I think the per-country limit is for overall number not per category. We cannot actually tell how much in each category as India always get more than 7% in each of the category. Take Philippines as an example, their EB1 numbers are below 7% and EB3 numbers are above 7% each year but their overall numbers will not exceed 7%. It is my understanding, I may be wrong.

Topic: Goodlatte bill coming today - Any details ?

Per country limit is 7% not 7.1%. The 7.1% in there is for EB4 and EB5 numbers that is 9940 (i.e 7.1% of 140,00). The proposed bill is not increasing that number for EB4 and EB5. They are splitting the additional 55,000 numbers to EB1, EB2 and EB3 only, that is a good thing. So each of this category will receive 18,333 additional. India will get 7% of 195,000 for all of EB categories (EB1,EB2,EB3,EB4 and EB5) + spillover as per the spillover rules.

Topic: Goodlatte bill coming today - Any details ?

9940 is in place of 7.1% of worldwide for EB4 and EB5 numbers. I don't see anything changing about country limits. There will be an increase of visas for each of EB1, EB2 and EB3 category from 40,040 to 58,373, we may get good amount of spill over.

Topic: H1 - H4/EAD visa status question

Her employer will not revoke H1B as she continues to work for the same employer with H4 EAD and new I-9. She has I-797 for H1B matching the VASA stamp but you brought up a good point here, when USCIS approved her H4 COS she got new I-797 approval notice with H4 status, I am not sure that make her H1B I-797 approval notice invalid or cancelled

Topic: H1 - H4/EAD visa status question

My wife working on H1B right now and her H1B VISA stamping is valid till the end of 2018. We have applied for her H1B to H4 COS and H4 EAD to save her time on H1B visa as she is in her 6th year of H1B with no approved I-140. Her H4 COS and H4 EAD is approved effective form a near future date. We are planning to change her status back to H1-B once she get her I-140 approved as the H4 EAD may go away eventually.

So the question, If she continues to work for the same employer with H4 EAD, can she travel outside and enter with her current H1B VISA stamping to change her status back to H1B before her H1B expires?

Topic: Rule: Strengthening the H-1B Nonimmigrant Visa Classification

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will propose to revise the definition of specialty occupation to increase focus on obtaining the best and the brightest foreign nationals via the H-1B program, and revise the definition of employment and employer-employee relationship to better protect U.S. workers and wages. In addition, DHS will propose additional requirements designed to ensure employers pay appropriate wages to H-1B visa holders.

Looks like H1-B reform coming in the form of Rule making process?

Topic: Last name change

Just apply for a new passport for change of name with only your last name as surname and start using the new name once you get the passport, like changing the name in SSN, drivers license, lease agreements, bank accounts etc.You don't need to worry about where you can't update right away, like VISA, approved 797 or I-94, they get updated when you apply for an extension or a new VASA stamping or when you travel in again. I did the same here in Chicago.

Topic: I-485 AOS Acceptance - Medicals Required!

There is lot of confusion arround the medicals but most lawers and USCIS encourage to wait on the medicals untill they request it. It make more sense as the midicals expire in a year and there is no/little chance for getting approval on 2010 or 2011 PD this year and you get RFE anyway if the medicals expire.


Timing of the Submission of the Medical Examination Report

The medical examination report may be submitted to USCIS:

* Concurrently with the immigration benefit application; or

*At any time after filing the immigration benefit application but prior to the adjudication of that application; if not filed concurrently with the immigration benefit application, USCIS encourages applicants to wait until USCIS requests the medical examination report before submitting it.
