Topic: Cut off date introduced on EB1 India

USCIS and DHS needs to start a massive crackdown and investigation on EB1C approved GC's in the past 5 years. If found fraudulent revoke their GC's and send ICE to pick them up for deportation. Meanwhile there should be a complete halt to EB1C date movement.

Probably we can say that skill level required is same for EB3 and EB2. In future there will not be much difference between Eb2 and EB3 unless there is spillover from Eb1.

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

I suggested IV to include HR392 on OMNI bill only, This bil only will pass in 2018, but headless chicken do not care and just time pass for them,

They rarely accepted to add immigration bill with non immigration bills. I knew a few immigration bills they added with some other non immigration bills in past. Those are non controversial. I do not think they will accept HR 392 to OMNI bill. But attempts can be done though it will be futile. Compared to DACA it is least priority for congress. By not passing this bill will not deport thousands of people. Now pressure was reduced after H4-EAD. If they would have given I140-EAD no one would have bothered about this

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

Country quota removal was in every comprehensive immigration bill in past and we know the result. Same thing continue now. DACA had decent chance to pass now no compulsion to pass unless lower court stay was vacated. Goodlate bill almost zero chance to pass. So it does not matter whether to include Hr 392 or not. Opposition from Row is zero because they think it is waste of time to oppose this. They will oppose when it is passed in one chamber of congress. Still DACA has some chance in next 2 years period. That could be the only vehicle. Otherwise time will fly

Topic: H4 EAD revoke plan delayed

It seems to me, USCIS going to wait for immigration reform to avoid redo work, I think this can go on and on.. election time no one will touch this.

I think any rule making is a very slow process unless there is emergency. It took years to bring H4-EAD. In the current schedule H4-EAD could continue till 2018 end or even more. I am seeing removal of H1B lottery should be top priority than this. Lot of abuses in that.

Topic: Immigration Reform is coming soon

IV says there is a chance that HR392 will be discussed on 23 Mar (Omnibus spending bill).

What do you think is the possibility that this happens?

Chances like March 23 will come a few times a year. Usually they won't allow adding immigration bill to those. If IV says this time is different then they can try. no harm. DACA had decent chance to add Hr392.

Topic: Immigration Reform is coming soon

wondering why would they amend the per country rule just because of people of 2 or 3 countries are backlogged in EB category (which DT knows very well is a trash system and not a Merit based)? just now DT admin has slapped anti-dumping duties on chinese pipe fittings; they both have issues in south china sea. coming to India, voting against US in UN for recognizing Jerusalem as capital, at least they could have remained abstained. After all these we still believe and expect favors from DT admin. sounds absurd..

I am seeing lot of almost good news for Hr 392 based on IV members. Looks like HR 392 got a an important Senator Hatch. Also planning to bring amendment to include Hr 392. I am not sure the amendment will be taken or it is under discretion of leadership. But it is in right direction and it has a few strong Senators support including Hatch. There is some good chance of passing DACA immigration bill and Fair chance of including Hr 392 in Senate. We do not know beyond that(it needs to be seen whether it has a chance in house)

Topic: Immigration Reform is coming soon

On CNN inside politics show they were briefly talking about the fee proposal for foreign technology workers with GC backlog which would pay for the wall. So something is happening behind the scenes.

Nowadays talks are based on the DACA and wall and both were very high visibility. There is a decent chance for both of them happen. So per country quota removal also depends on those 2 now. But what if DACA fails or per country quota is not included with the DACA. Then Hr 392 also will not happen many years

Topic: H4 EAD Renewal during Cancellation Process

My H4 EAD currently expires on Sept 4th. 180 days before the expiry is 1st week of March. Given the current timeline of H4 EAD revocation, will USCIS accept the application during the original 30 days of publishing the rule or during the comments period ?If I understand correctly, the rule does not go into effect until its published (~90 days from feb timeline) and application process continues as normal till that point. I would really appreciate you guidance.

You are right mostly. It is expectation that it will take minimum 90 days to finish rule making even comment period is 30 days. Chances are that it may take more time up to October. But need to wait for detailed rule to see what they will do for existing H4-EAD holders

Topic: Immigration Reform is coming soon

Not against DACA or any undocumented immigrant but it makes no sense when people keep opposing H1B and H4 EAD for that matter. US Citizens are not concerned about 1.8 million undocumented people who will take their jobs but are more concerned with 100K H4 EAD holders taking their job. LOL

But high skilled jobs is much less than 5% in USA. So we cannot compare with DACA. Why they kept H1b cap as 65k not 1 million. 100k is big number as US creates 1 million new high skilled jobs in 10 years in good economy. 85k H1b plus 100k L1 plus opt plus H4-EAD(high skilled may be 25k every year). Certainly numbers are much higher even 50% of the persons in the cap are rotating. Recently San Jose Mercury news mentioned that 70% of Silicon valley work force is H1b 40% of Seattle Area work force is H1b

Topic: Immigration Reform is coming soon

Sanders reiterated those requirements on Wednesday: "securing the border and closing legal loopholes, ending extended family chain migration, canceling the visa lottery and providing a permanent solution on DACA."

So basically, i don't have any hopes.

I am seeing that the deal mostly will involve low skilled and illegal immigration if there a deal. They may include PCC or they may very well say that they PCC removal could be done with high skilled bill involving H1b. Trying is an option without worrying about results

Topic: Sundar Pichiah loves h1b like us

No his tone already softened and said he is open h1b reform ..most companies won't complain that much about h1b .. they all got big tax breaks because of trump .

I wonder when will pichai speak up against EB1C scam

Why do you think it is a Scam. When some one in India who is working as a manager or above position then he can be considered as a multi national manager when company transfers USA. When same person works here as a Manager or even VP he will not be eligible for Eb1c. That is a law or loophole in the law. If changes are needed then DHS can propose a regulation by rule making or simply by memo. How will you make DHS to convince?

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

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.
