Topic: DACA/HR 392 are DOA, what comes next is ...

His deep connections must be cleaning the s!@#holes of usa

With his deep connections, he probably does the cleaning service internationally too!

We do not need deep connections to understand this. After the SFO judge blocked the removal of DACA executive order the bill is dead for now. Even when last DACA negotiation Hr 392 was not attached. Any time Hr 392 has slim chance past present and future. Increasing country quota is possible but not complete removal. Till that compromise is reached mostly nothing happens

Topic: H4 EAD- Save Jobs Lawsuit UPDATES

They have the right to represent themselves, doesn't matter they are right or wrong. The law decides that. I completely agree that H4 EAD folks are not too much out there and I personally do not buy the theory that they are taking away american jobs. If Americans can't compete this small population of temporary immigrants, then there is a serious problem. That being said, I repeat, americans have all the rights to represent themselves. You can't say that's not allowed.

And not all H4EAD jobs are in IT to get outsourced. I know several spouses working on non -it jobs in small companies which usually dont get outsourced. First get out of the theory that h1b and h4 ead are for IT only, though thats the major user.

As you can read on Oh Law site, these are efforts to curb immigrants taking jobs across the board and not just target specific visa type. Now the focus is on h1b and h4 ead. Later it wilshift to L1, EB1C etc. Just a matter of time.

I completely support H4 EAd and I have personally been affected by the lack of it, years ago. But, that's not going to cloud my judgement in recognizing the citizen rights and they come before us. Have a right to work is a privilege here for non-immigrants. Not a right. Understand that.

And last but not the least, I am not an admin. Wondering how you figured that?

H4-EAD removal is in the cards first. Still rule making is time consuming and success is not guranteed as it will face lawsuits and may delay or even derail the agenda. Most Judges are pro immigrants and government need to go everything to Supreme court to get win on any lawsuit in case pro immigrants could block the rule making any time. Already 1 year is done more time could pass. Again if DHS authority to give EAD and they have same authority to revoke it. But removing some provision already is more difficult and excellent planning without any mistake is needed from DHS. That is another reason for delay. H4-EAD is most important for Indians and that is the reason first priority for this Admin. Remaining Agenda will take more time. Finally they could come to H1B extension if that is feasible.

Topic: IV Call today Dec 17th

When H4 EAD rule was rolled out by Obama administration, it was evident that it can be rolled back if the administration ever came in the hands of racists.

So, after the elections IV decided to play and made 2 predictions for H4 EAD and H1 extensions. H4 EAD roll back was very evident and didn't really need IV stamp but now they are saying, "See we told you H4 EAD will go and you didn't believe us. You are not believing us for H1 extensions hence it will also go."

E raang number hai, sasura DHS mein kono aapki firki le raha hai

When Trump sworn in the news came about H4-EAD revocation in Vox also IV was giving opinion before that based on Jeff Sessions appointment. In fact it got delayed due to the delay in appointments of different positions including DHS secretary. In fact Jeff Sessions delay in confirmation delayed for a few weeks. Of course if government had idea to have settlement in the court then IV intervention could have delayed much more. Prevention of H1b extension after 6 years is coming as a rumor now. They could consider and it will come if DHS thinks they have Authority to do it. H4-EAD removal would take at least 6 months from now. I am sure they will do big clean up in immigration before another 3 years. No interest in leadership for Hr 392 yet. We do not know whether leadership will get interest. They could postpone till Raise act even if they get interest. But there is no other option now

Topic: IV Call today Dec 17th

IV had started this rumor last year.

I've confirmed with my lawyer.

AC 21 is statue and can only be repealed by rulemaking process.

Corporate and AILA wont allow it as it is there bread and butter.

At the same time they wont aloow HR 392 to pass.

They want this status quo backlog to continue as it works best in their interest.

Actually Corporations will not bother as they got tax cut they want in big level. When they do not allow 7th year extension they could bring new H1bs with lower pay. Though it is law there is a provision that DHS could give or revoke EAD. That will be legitimate if they do by rule making. What IV saying is logical but the question is they will do it or not. That is not even proposal yet unlike H4-EAD. So let us face when it comes. Now only item is H4-EAD will go away in 6 to 9 months. Others are speculation.

Topic: H4 EAD Revocation rule

Rule making is just a sham.
Look at Net Neutrality ruling, the government will do what it wants to do. Now, they want to repeal H4EAD, so they will get it done.
Hopefully by the time H4EAD is repealed, HR392 passes :)

That is the way rule making works Recall when they implemented H4-EAD DHS ignored opposing comments. Now opposite happens. Same result.Take I140 EAD. Thousands of comments opposing extraordinary situation They ignored all. That is the main reason fix by congress is much better

Topic: H4 EAD Revocation rule

When the news broke out initially in November on SF Chronicle, there were few lawyers on twitter told they're ready to file a case to put a hold on such reverse rule making. I don't know how far that case will go if filed. DHS can eventually rescind the rule but any case filed can add a delay to it.

Even the proposed rule making is about 150 days, government can speed it up to 90 days if they want to. Interesting times ahead.

Basically you cannot do anything until rule making is completed as everyone including you and me can participate in the rule making by writing comments. Even after rule comes it is difficult to defend in the court unless DHS does a mistake. But Judge will hear the arguments as the standing can be won but fail on merrit. If DHS has the power to give the EAD they have same power to rescind. I think government can complete quickly as they want to remove the rule unlike changing the rule. I am thinking that before 2018 July the rule will come

Topic: H4 EAD Revocation rule

It looks like rule making will start after Feb 2018 and it could take at least 90 days to complete the process. It is bad that some thing they gave and take it out later. It would have been better the rule would not have come

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

So far there is no decrease of students. Mostly Indians only plans for green card even when they plan to study. Most other country persons including china are coming for study and they settle here if they like it. If they restrict H1b then number of Indian students will reduce and number international students may not increase or increase slightly. Most impacted universities will be Visa mills who are giving CPT immediately after arrival. Top and medium universities will not have any impact. The culture of studying in USA was there for past 100 years and USA never saw decrease in students numbers most of the years including some severe recession.

Topic: H4 EAD Beneficiaries

What you are saying is completely correct. But you see the history of Indians. Initially Eb3 was in backlog and targeted Eb2 and once Eb2 is hopeless now many are targeting Eb1 and also targeting for Row to remove the country cap. If country cap is removed then backlog is distributed evenly for all the countries and still waiting time for Eb3 will be over 7 to 10 years for all and over 5 years for Eb2 for all countries. Also Persons from developed countries like Europe will not have any catalyst to immigrate to USA if USA asks them to wait 5 to 10 years. The leadership in congress well aware of it but it cannot be disclosed outside as that is a discrimination. Country cap removal is impractical at least as a stand alone bill. But some compromise like increasing to quota to up to 50% is possible. It is similar to reservation in India. No one can even talk against reservation in India. At least we have a freedom to talk in USA.

Best long term solution will be make the green card numbers proportional to H1b numbers or reduce H1b numbers so that waiting period of GC is reasonable. No one will bother if wait time is less than 5 years for India and even others have zero waiting time.

Topic: H4-EAD , January 2 , 2018 court date.

No one is for sure. But based on newspaper stories H4-EAD will be gone sooner or later. But rule making is needed and it may take 3 to 6 months at least to finish the rule making. Still I think existing H4-EAD will have work permit until validity period. But there are some who ready for lawsuit if H4-EAD is rescinded. The lawsuit will succeed only if government makes some mistake in rule making. It is always true that certain people will be impacted lot if some thing like this happens and certain will be benefited.

Topic: Ageing Out Legal Immigrant Children

Make below video viral in India tweeting to Modiji, Sushmaji and major Indian Media journalists, then more Indain folks will have awareness of backlogs, and they will only come from India in L1A , apply EB1C and thus making EB1C heavily backlogged in coming years.

All of H4-kids are having legal status. Only issue is they cannot work. But Dreamer kids are not having any legal status if DACA is repealed but H4-kids can stay as soon as they are in H4 or they can convert to F1. Dreamers are asking green card for them and H4-kids are asking gc for their parents. So it needs to be seen whether it will have an impact no harm in trying

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

Someone as high up as the VP needs to sponsor HR392.

There is no chance of passing with Kevin Yoder as the sponsor.

Sponsor does not matter for passing the bill. Whether support in leadership is there or not is the question. I think there is no support in leadership. At least is there any support for the persons who is having knowledge in H1b or legal immigration. That is also no. Goodlatte is one of a few knows some thing about immigration. Can IV get support from him? Persons like him and Paul Ryan are prioritizing the bills. Similarly in Senate Grassley is one of the few who has awareness in legal immigration and also in a leadership position. At least 80% of them in congress has the limited knowledge about country quota. That is why they are buying the discrimination argument of IV in country quota. If you go to leadership they will negotiate with sponsor if they are interested.

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

And that is the sole reason for not wanting to remove the country cap. The bill will not pass or even come to a vote or even get out of the committee because they do not want to give more rights to the highest earning immigrant community. They would rather create a second class level of highly paid immigrants with no voting rights. All other excuses are BS.

You are mostly right. And another aspect is high skilled jobs are only 5 to 10% of US work force. So they gave only thar much percentage of green cards. So we cannot compare with other low skilled immigration

Topic: More H-1B Fraud

With such endless fraud, I think even legitimate causes like HR 392 will be viewed less favorably. Wonder how long before all the fraud is removed! Really sad.

So far no one went to jail. This person could be first but she could ask more leniency and could succeed. So far the persons got maximum punishment of probation with 250k penalty and leaving the consulting business. Even in this case plea bargain may or may not be last one.

Topic: IV tax form 990 - 2014

can someone educate me on what IV has accomplished so far? please try to answer my question instead of attacking me.

If IV accomplish some thing they were trying hard like Hr 392 then there will not be need for IV. Most Indians will get g in 2 to 6 years time and no one will donate. In the lobbying or advocacy result is not guranteed. It is not like doing a project in a company or accomplish some financial goal. Many companies are doing this. They are lobbying for the items which they know that will not happen. You can go and find about what companies like Coke,Microsoft,GE and many others are lobbying and see the results

Topic: H4 EAD future?

DACA will be history by end of the year. Texas has already threatened to revise their complaint and if they do, the texan judge will make sure it'll meet the same fate as DAPA.

If they can do that with DACA , then H4 and OPT has no chance. These are all illegal actions taken by Obama to further the interest of corporate and immigration lobby. No court will enforce that.

There is some possibility for DACA to stay but H4-EAD and STEM opt can go. Actually Trump has some soft corner on DACA as he mentioned once that he also has big heart as many others when he mentioned about DACA. But after the ruthless layoffs of US citizens replacing by H1b and outsourcing no sympathy for high skilled persons. So it is a prediction that H4-EAD and STEM OPT will go away based o indications by DOJ. Still some unexpected events could prevent/delay those happening. It is better for prepare alternative options as there is lot time. Basically hope for best and prepare for worst as it nowhere close to done deal

Topic: H4 EAD future?

A friend in the corporate law department based in Washington told me that they are waiting for Cissna to take the charge. H4 EAD and 3year OPT will go away by the end of this year. H1B extensions is next where they'll come with policy guidances to reject H1B extensions. That's the most alarming development. If the extension is rejected than the Green card application goes away too.The idea is to get rid of as many H1Bs so the citizens can get the jobs.

These things are merely speculations. There is no basis. They can reject based on guideline or policy. If they tighten the guideline we will come to know. For now everything is business as usual.

Topic: H4 EAD future?

Almost certain that it will go away within 6 months. What I've heard is the plaintiff want to go step further and take the ability of USCIS to issue EAD altogether. That's what they are negotiating on.

I heard they are revising complete H1b program including H4-EAD and OPT by Executive order of Trump. We will come to know in a few months. Even after that it will take some time to remove the H4-EAD even if they decide. For now H4-EAD is there and people can enjoy without fear. One cannot predict the future accurately

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

What you say "law" has already been acknowledged by LAW MAKERS that it is broken and is NOT FAIR and thats the reason the bill passed the HOUSE back in 2011 with 389 votes. It still has highest people agreeing to it (Co-sponsers).

You sir have a flawed logic and thank god! you are not a LAW MAKER

Then why Senate did not take up on 2011? There are many bills house pass but senate is not taking or passing. If both houses agree then only we can say lawmakers agree. Also if a bill passes by 1 vote by 2 houses then it becomes law. If one house passes with all the votes and not passed in other house then it was failed. You can try next time but failed is failed until it pass again

Topic: HR 392 : On its way forward . Lets Unite .

Get everyone to co sponsor it still won't get any hearing in committee forget about voting ..only way this provision could pass is if it gets included with h1b reform bill. As stand alone no chance

Co-sponsor alone cannot gurantee the taking up the bill. I heard in past a bill with 355 co-sponsors was not taken up. But this could increase the pressure but will that be enough to for taking the bill for consideration. Let us wait and see
