Topic: Anyone contemplating to apply for Canadian PR now?



The I-485 process is based on country of birth and not on citizenship. So even if you have an Australian passport, you will be counted against your country of birth's visa allocation. If you are born in India, you will be in square one after coming here.



What he meant is that one would have a developed country passport at least as a back up. The years waiting here in limbo could be well spent in getting a strong citizenship.



My bad. But his quote - ' if all goes well, you could return to the US in 3-4 years with your new passport, and resume the 485 process.' confused me. I thought he was talking about his I-485 application to be reapplied as an Australian citizen.

Topic: fate of H4 EAD

I agree.

They even shut down the govt for sometime because of DACA. Will they do it for H4EAD? No way. DACA is lot bigger and caters to a large voting base especially since the mid terms are coming up.

Topic: Steps after getting GC

One more thing - update your LinkedIn profile(assuming you have an Indian name). Just add a sentence at the top of your profile, something in the lines of -'no visa sponsorship required' and sit back to watch a flood of offers coming in your way. ;) enjoy!

Topic: Buying house in current climate

For us they just checked our credit history. They didn't ask for our immigration status anytime until the last process of closing, where the bank wanted a copy of our immigration document. They said it was just for documentation and they do not care when it was getting expired. (depends on the bank or the credit institution I guess)
I think the logic is even if you are unable to pay the mortgage because if you have to go back to your country, the bank can always sell and get back their money at this market. So I do not think they will care about your immigration status. I may be wrong. Someone who works in a bank can put more light on this.

Topic: Cross Chargeability

I hope her birth certificate also points to a place of birth in Nepal. If not, get that corrected as well because USCIS for I-485 usually gives priority to the place of birth based on the birth certificate rather than passport.
For passport place of birth change this thread might help - http://www.trackitt.com/usa-discussion-forums/i...

Also you can only apply for premium I-140 only if your 6th year of H1B is expiring within 60 days of filing your I-140.

Topic: Documents to carry for Re-entry?

Yes. They can ask these questions even to GC holders and even to USC who return from other countries. It purely depends on the officer. But as long as your answer is satisfying, they just won't care.
Watch some episodes of the series - 'border security america's front line' in Netflix. You have no idea what kind of questions they can ask ;)

Topic: H1B Visa - 60 day period question

There is also a confusion whether you are eligible for the 60 days period if you resign voluntarily. 60 days usually is triggered when you are laid off or fired from the company.

Quoting this Murthy article - https://www.murthy.com/2017/03/06/grace-period-n...

'The regulation does not differentiate between a worker who is terminated and one who quits. Therefore, the 60-day grace period should be available in either situation, though the USCIS potentially could take that issue into consideration in determining the amount of time to allow as a grace period.'

Some news coming every day on when they are sending us home
https://www.yahoo.com/news/h-1b-visa-program-tru...

I am getting headache form this sit. They will add more types to black list and plan to send us home . This website is saying people are going to Canada. Sometimes I am getting laughs by all this and many times crying only. H1b are treated like beggaers here




Wow. Look at those comments against H1Bs and the number of upvotes against it. I thought Breitbart was bad. At this rate I do not think we have any support from the USC. Maybe less than 1%.

Topic: Documents to carry for Re-entry?

You should also bring your parent's ration card and your maternal uncle's driving license copy which should be attested.
Just kidding!!. You just need your passport and your combo card. All the documents mentioned above by you, you can keep it, but do not show it unless they ask for it specifically.

LOL. Only 1.2 Cr? My cousin brother and his wife make close to 5 Cr back home. My neighbor is a vegetable seller and has his own chain of shops in our town. He makes close to 2 Cr per month. Almost ~25 Cr per year. You will have to take a taxi to get from one end of his house to the other. 1.2 is too less ;) ;) ;)

Topic: My recent AP experience at Abu Dhabi

I also traveled last week from Abu Dhabi and it seems they have changed some of the process. Just before you enter the queue, there were 2 officers posted there who checks your papers and asks you questions about the travel. These were actual CBP officers and not airport contractors. There was a girl who was travelling in front of me with her mother. They asked her the visa status and her mother's. When she told her mother was on B2, they wanted to see her return ticket. After some digging she couldn't find the ticket and told the officer it was in her email. They told her to show them. For some reason she had problem with her wifi and finally she showed the digital return tickets and then only she was allowed to go through.
So folks, if any of your parents are traveling via Abu Dhabi, let them keep a hard copy of the return ticket with them to remove the unnecessary hassle.
Also when we reach the main CBP officer on the counter, he did not have many questions as the other guys had already grilled us. Just took the photo and stamped the passport. So it seems like a 2 step process now at Abu Dhabi.

Topic: Commuter Status checks

Back in 2010, me and our friends who were on H1B accidentally crossed over to Canada going to Niagara falls in the US side. While trying to cross back to US, we just had our driving license. Not even our passports. Though it took a long time for them to verify, they finally waved us through with a stern warning to carry our passports the next time when we go anywhere near a border. Though this is a rare case when we were re entering US, I do not think there is any guideline for visa holders within US. You cannot carry all the documents at all time.

Topic: Post Shutdown Immigration Reform- Attempt #2?




2. Yet on a moral level, these people DID grow up here in the US all their lives... is it morally right to support sending them away?



don't believe all the cr@p they shove down their throat on CNN/ABC/NBC etc....very small minority of DACA folks came here as a baby....

u come in at 16(you can be 18 or even 20 and claim to be only 16 ...we all know how easy it is to get fake birth certificates from 3rd world country).....then you spend a year or 2....and bam! you are eligible for EAD now....

While a H4 kid who came at age 1, will never ever be eligible for EAD EVER!

I used to think people are retarded or even call them "tin foil" dimwits when people said "shadow govt" or globalist agenda etc....but if u see whats going on in the world....u can clearly see globalist agenda at play in all aspects....

Now why does the globalists prefer uneducated cheap labor atinos to be perm residents of USA but want to keep educated(most of us at least have a bachelors in STEM) , high salaried desis in limbo? i have no effing idea...but everyone from google/apple/amazon to Obumma dances to this tune.....

I can't spend 5mins on facebook without FWD.us spamming me with all the sad dreamer stories and how they must be protected....not a single blip about H4 EAD being rescinded or about legal immigrants stuck in the queue....they dont care!



Excellent points.
Here is what I think is hindering legal immigrant support

1. Legal immigrants, if they are not from India, China or Philippines has a reasonable change of getting a GC in a normal time. So the support base is very less compared to DACA
2. Most of the American people are made to believe H1B guys are there to take away jobs from Americans (Which they are ignorant), which does not help us.
3. Unlike DACA, legal immigrants are seen as one of the highest wage earners in the US having a good lifestyle. So there goes the sympathy factor.
4. The legal immigrants have a country to go back to if their status is cancelled here in the US. Whereas the DACA people are seen as poor kids who has no family or relatives back in their home country. Another sympathy factor is gone.

These are some of the points which I can think of. Maybe that is the reason why the politicians are reluctant to touch the point of legal immigrants which does not get them any political milage.
