THE MEHTA-ENDELMAN PLAN

Rate this Entry

A few of you have written to me telling me about an interesting set of ideas proposed by my friends Gary Endelman and Cyrus Mehta, both fellow immigration lawyers. I've praised the plan in the comments, but it is worth bumping up to its own post. The proposal has three major components:

1. Interpreting the INA in a way that would allow for a more liberal reading of when a case is "filed" for purposes of being able to file an adjustment application when a green card category is backlogged.

2. The President should use his parole authority to allow persons in long queues for green cards to be able to obtain employment and travel authorization while they wait without having to have an adjustment application pending.

3. Not including spouses and children in the employment-based green card quotas in order to ensure that the numbers are actually counted for immigrant workers.

Hopefully these ideas will gain some traction.

    Thanks Greg for posting this!

    The great thing about point # 3 is that it will free up a lot of visas which are otherwise taken up by the dependents of the primary applicants. If you assume that each primary has at least 1 dependent ON AVERAGE, then this will speed up the priority date movements A LOT which in turn by some estimates, will cut down the average wait time by half.
