Why do you say that you wasted 10 years? You were working, earning, had a comfortable life here in US. People who complain about bad working conditions or stuck with a wrong company, let me ask you this - If tomorrow a rule comes that H1B's won't get GC, would you quit your job and go back or would you continue to work?

I agree that the policies should be clear and not like what we have were we don't know what's going to happen, but it's been like this all this while and we made an informed decision, hence let's not use the word 'wasted'.

Until 2014 PD progressed organically even though there were annual retrogressions. Until 2015, EB category received spillover from FB category. All this changed after IV started picking up a fight with USCIS.

True to some extent, but the real reason for visagate2015 was that the leftist admin was not ready to help backlogged EB immigrants. Unlike DOS, USCIS (or INS) has always been anti-immigrant. They do their work only when they are forced to. In 2007, DOS advanced the dates but backed down when USCIS protested. This is when the admin issued an edict to restore the integrity of visa bulletin and immigration process.

Dude, EB1C is clearly being abused by consulting firms there is absolutely no dispute to that, it's as good as black and white. And I am not "alleging", I know it for a fact because we have one of the top consultancies on the list who works for our company and pesky report developers with no considerable skills are filing EB1C and getting green cards just because they have L1A. There are also nepotistic behavior within their teams and favoritism is rampant based on which EB1C is distributed as "mandir ka prasad". The guy licking more boots, sing more "anna anna" songs gets to take the cut and gets to file EB1C.

They are using fake org hierarchies, fake manager-reportee relationships and fake experience as managers just because they spent a few years offshore with the company and they get to file as "International Managers". I have seen all of this first hand as recently as few months ago. All of these filings are EB1"C". These activities might be "Sensible" for you, but it's nonsense for the rest of us. I have seen this happening for other consultancies where folks who don't even have an engineering/Tech degree are applying for EB1C on the basis of spurious documentation. I have evidence of all this, but I don't think i need to show it to you to be rightfully pissed about it. EB1C is taking from their allotted number alright, but they are absolutely not following the rules.

There you go, the same beat up assumption. Yes I did report it. They did disclose it to me and it's their prerogative, i didn't ask for it and people who did disclose it were also people who are frustrated with this nonsense going on in their own company. It's gotten so worse that sometimes they do it openly, and the way I know it because I am on immigrant visa directly with my company and our HR issues directive for Site visits etc. for all H1B/L1 folks full time or contractors. The consulting companies are also asked to post "No objection" notices on the notice board on premises as part of the process by our company, so it's visible in plain daylight, there's no conspiracy theory here, except the fact not a lot of people understand the intricacies of it. There is no masala to it, it's a 100% fact not fiction. With my 14 years of experience I have worked half my life for these pesky consulting companies until i refused to work for them because of their abusive and nepotistic work culture. You seem to have a soft corner for these abusers and you seem to believe that everything is roses or sunshine. You can keep drinking the koolaid, but everything you read about these EB1C abusers is 100% accurate. I was a naysayer just like you until i saw it happen right in front of my eyes.

And by the way these abusers not only abuse EB1C through L1A, they also abuse H1B. The LCA posting notices that they put up in our company premises are a joke. Every single resource is paid exactly $65,000 and that too in a state like CA. What a big joke. I already know your response to this as "well they are not breaking any law, since minimum salary for H1B is $65K" .... which is exactly what these body shoppers say when they get caught with their pants down. They are not only abusing the system they are also abusing their own resources.

These companies are not only hurting the American workforce, they are also hurting genuine Immigrants who follow all the rules and yet get demonized due to these guys. The sheer number of these so called "Bad Apples" is gotten out of control, so I am extremely happy what this Administration did with their latest memo related to third party worksite. What goes around comes around!

Exactly my point. The first few pages of that pdf list is full of the body shoppers that I talk about and the number of L1A filings are clear enough to point that there's something really wrong going on. If all the top level executives are leaving their posts back home and coming here on L1A to get GC, who the hell is managing the company back in India? The fact is, more than 90% of these L1A petitions are neither top level nor executives but developers and testers. Most top level execs I personally know have no intention or willingness to come and settle here in the US that far into their careers, which makes perfect sense. It's bizarre that people think that there's nothing wrong happening. People turning the bling eye to it are exactly the people complicit in all of this nonsense.

As someone from the non IT and non corporate world I have learned a lot about EB1C misuse from these forums. There maybe a lot of genuine cases but there definitely seems to be a flaw in the EB1C category and companies are able to take advantage of it.

That being said, I'm not sure if there is anything more one can do on the EB1C issue. I'm sure USCIS at some point will pay attention and tighten the screws. I wonder if recent EB1C green card interviews are a lot more stricter.

There is a huge difference between legally correct and ethically correct. Most of the EB1Cs are legally correct (thanks to their immigration attorneys), but not ethically as these folks are no way eligible for the EB1C GC. But given the current immigration system, who don't want to get the GC faster and have the better life (at least these guys are much better than illegals), I don't blame them for using the route which their company is providing. Moreover, sponsoring company is at risk and not the candidate, even more better reason to use the route.

Trust me everyone here on trackitt who is going ga-ga over EB1C will use the route if it is available to them. Everyone here think that I am better than the other, hence that commotion. It is not just being better than the other, but also being in better place sometimes is even more important :). Instead of blaming EB1Cs, inform the authorities about the companies misusing them, help the authorities to close the loopholes.

PS: I am on EB2 and not on EB1, don't think that I am biased towards EB1C, I am equally frustrated but decline to blame these lucky folks, when the actual culprits are companies and immigrant attorneys.

You bring up great points. I agree if this route was available for others , everyone would have used the opportunity. For example it would have been nice if physicians who worked in India and the US got that option too- a global physician :)

In the end all we can do now is work within the confines of the current immigration system. What is the status of HR392? Does anyone have updates?

Watch Hillary Clinton's speech in India last week at India Today Conclave.
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/03/13/hill...
The Indian guy introducing her is sucking up so much to her. Also her speech is so much against Trump and quite anti US citizens specially whites with reference to Indian Americans. Hope Trump administration does get infuriated watching this and make immigration even tighter for Indians....

if HR 392 is tied to HR 4760, will it really helps?

https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/hou...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SEC. 1103. EMPLOYMENT-BASED IMMIGRATION PRIORITIES.
(a) Increase In Visas For Skilled Workers.—The Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1101 et seq.) is amended—

(1) in section 201(d)(1)(A), by striking “140,000” and inserting “195,000”; and

(2) in section 203(b)—

(A) in paragraph (1), by striking “28.6 percent of such worldwide level” and inserting “58,374”;

(B) in paragraphs (2) and (3), by striking “28.6 percent of such worldwide level” each place it appears and inserting “58,373”; and

(C) by striking “7.1 percent of such worldwide level” each place it appears and inserting “9,940”.
---------------------------------------

Section C - Is anything really changing from 7% to 9940 ?????????



What does HR 392 really does/help if it PASSES in its current FORM ?
how it helps in the next few years and 10 years down the line ?

Guys like you is the reason why the Eb line is so huge. You were and are a waste of time.

The most common accusation on this forum. So many people have been accused of being the reason that EB dates dont move. I say let us find those people first so that we can end this misery.

A guy who is acting like a freaking trackitt judge and passing judgments to all categories will preach about manners? I dont think so! Guys like you is the reason why the Eb line is so huge. You were and are a waste of time. I am getting a GC before you, so rot in your EB3 line or do a fraud of EB1C thats what you are good for.

PhDs makes more than 200K base salary, if you dont know then shut your mouth. Try getting a masters alone, you will wet your pants in first semester itself. First try to achieve something to be in a position to judge someone then talk.

to miracle11:



Been following your posts for some time now and I have only this to say:-
Pride comes before a fall

A little bit of humility would go a long way for someone who claims to be EB1 material. Sadly, that PhD Education can make people smarter, but surely not better Human beings.
It is also huge stretch and laughable to pin the length of the EB line on a lone poster on an online forum.
