Topic: CANADA PR

One guy I know moved to the middle east after getting his Canadian citizenship. At the time (7-8 years ago) he was making north of 100K (tax free) and used to visit India every 3-4 months. A first world passport opens up many opportunities around the world that your typical dollar chasing H1B crowd doesn't realize. You can actually travel, build relationships, and in general enjoy life. There is more to the world than the US. Just keep an open mind.

Topic: 2017 SO to EB2


As far as I know this has been happening since Indian nationals sued DoS/USCIS in FY 2015 for filing dates fiasco.

Stupid move if you ask me.

Topic: CANADA PR

Yes, you should try for Canadian PR. Being on H1B for a long time is not a great idea. There are so many things which are not in our hands. E.g., consider a case where the H1B primary (god forbid) is involved with an accident, or has an health issue and is unable to work. The dependents will have no option but to go to India.

Canada is not very different from US and adjustment is much easier. Also, ignore all talk about cold. Places like Vancouver/Toronto are no worse than Seattle, Minneapolis/Detroit/NY etc. In fact, the temperature right now in Toronto is same as NYC.

Topic: Immigration Reform is coming soon

That's true. They also enjoy life more than desis who are hyper competitive, whine all the time and are never satisfied.

Almost all desi kids I see have glasses, are zero in sports and can't even run 250 meters without catching breath.

I think his point is that they are more similar compared to Desi's and white (e.g. more or less same cuisine, religion, social habits etc.). Spanish, being a romance language is more closer to english. A lot of Mexicans also have European ancestry.

You are right.

Trumps supporters are 100% against DACA and 100% pro-Merit based.

In the era of Robotization we need skilled workers not lettuce pickers.

If I was POTUS I'd grant every Indian on H1B an instant Green Card and deport all the illegals.

No other country in the world tolerates this level of abuse of its immigration laws.

Trump and his supporters are against every kind of immigration unless it is from countries like Norway, Slovenia etc.

Topic: Feedback on IV call


May be Shalabh Kumar will talk to Trump on behalf of Employers to continue backlog. If Trump clears backlog he may get one million plus vote for Republicans from skilled immigrants , billions of $$$$, positive impact on economy, thousands of startups, thousands of high tech new jobs.

Trump wants immigrants from countries like Norway and Slovenia.

Dems wants more low skilled immigrants only to increase their vote share.

Low skilled is relative. From an EB1's point of view, EB2 is low skilled.

Looks like NOTHING for legal backlogs .... the extra visas go to the bloody refugees .... this so F***** up ......

Dems do not want to help legals .... they gave the visas to the bloody refugees

People like you will blame and cuss everyone else for their problems.

EB1 and EB5 are both current for India. But I guess you're neither qualified nor rich, basically just like the people you are blaming.

DACA folks came here as children and are more American than you are. Refugees are running away from problems in their home countries. What is your excuse?

Topic: EB1-B My Experience: Unique case against all odds


great. I have a question. Does USCIS ever contact recommendation letter providers directly to verify if they actually wrote this letter? I have never heard of this.

Are you f****n serious???

If they ever find out that you faked anything and I mean anything in your application at any stage then they'll send you packing and it wont matter if you are a GC holder or even a US citizen by then. USCIS has broad powers in matters like these.

There is no harm in trying. My only suggestion is to not include any evidence that is weak as it could trigger an RFE.

Topic: AC21 leak/rumors - many positives!!!


Guys, lets look at the positives coming out of AC21 leaks/rumors. With this leak, now the whole world is getting awareness that there are almost a million Indians in GC backlog living stressfully since last 10-15 years. The situation will get worse for those who just entered the GC line since their wait is going to be close to 30-40 years. IV is just cashing in on people's fear, they very well know that there will be big lawsuits if this leak becomes reality and US will be equally badly impacted coz of this change. So, just relax and be positive!

It might also backfire. When the MAGA crowd and their representatives realize that 1 million brown people from a single country, who traditionally lean democratic, are to be suddenly greened, what do you think they'll do?

Frankly, H1B would not even be on the radar if weren't for WITCHS who abused the system right and left. All they had to do was hire some US citizens, maybe some ROW folks and everything would have been fine. All this is a fallout of Disney/Edison/Infosys etc. Before they were after illegal immigration and now they are after both, illegal and legal immigration. What's unfortunate is that people who had nothing to do with IT or WITCHS are suffering.

Topic: who is right: IV or immigration girl/lawyers


Why don’t we send email, facebook comments, tweeting to People like mark zuckerberg, Bill Gates or any CEO from reputed top 10 companies.

I see at least mark zuckerberg respond on social issues. why not we try.


I think they are the reason why minimum wage is being pushed to >90K.

You do understand that EB1A is even tougher than EB1B? EB1A means that you really are extraordinary, and can back it up, i.e., provide all the necessary evidence.

Topic: Worried and Confused

No need to get worried as nothing is official yet.

Also, if you're as good as you claim to be then file via EB1B or EB5. For EB1B your firm can claim, leading/critical role, high salary, commercial success etc.

Good Luck.

Topic: H.R. 392, Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act


Assuming you get 1 years increments of H-1B, They will pour RFE's and RFE's on that extensions and deny 40% of applications. Remaining 60% might get 1 year. Next year they do another 40% denials and guess what ?backlog gets trimmed and trimmed and trimmed .

I think that's the idea. Make it expensive for employers to justify hiring of H1B's. The proposed 90K minimum wage with additional paperwork/fees brings the total to 100K.

Topic: H4 EAD Revocation rule


Point in case how these scumbag WITCH companies have demented and shamed the H1b visa to such an extent that it has become a stigma. Do you think h4 is an isolated incident? May be if the whole Andhra Pradesh was not here in H1b visa, claiming all of them are exceptionally talented, this day of reckoning would never had come.

This. Very nicely put :-)

Topic: UK Citizenship in 6 yrs - why is US so hard?

As long as people back home keep electing buffoons on caste and religious lines the country will not improve. Just look at your average MP/MLA.

In the past we had politicians and criminals (who were often used by the former). But now criminals have become politicians.

Topic: EB 2 India Priority Date - Decade Wait?


Hopefully they bring the merit based system where you are probably more qualified to get it quicker. Whatever you listed, others have been doing for 17 years or more and counting. 4.5 years means, you are just getting started.

No matter what system they come up with Indians will saturate it. First it was EB3, then EB2 and now even EB1 is seeing retrogression. There are too many people with same or better profile than the OP.

Also, one can argue that the current system is already merit based as wait time for Indians applying via EB1 or EB5 are minimal.

Topic: UK Citizenship in 6 yrs - why is US so hard?

I dont think it's fair to call the US immigration system inhumane. If you're part of ROW you can get your GC very quickly, i.e., much faster than UK or any other EU country. Even Indians with extraordinary abilities or $$$ can get greened relatively quickly via EB1/5.

It just wasn't designed to deal with the kind of EB2/3 numbers we are seeing from India. The original intent of H1B was that majority of these people will work here on a temporary basis (like H2) and then go back. But 99.99% of us want to stay and there lies the problem.

My advice is to not get stressed and enjoy life. There are many countries in the world which don't promise PR (SE Asia, Middle East etc.) and Indians there are actually doing quite well. They know very well that at some point they might have to go back and plan accordingly.
