OUR GOVERNMENT INACTION

Rate this Entry

I'm rooting for President Obama's to succeed with his big plans and I want to believe that government can really help to solve people's problems. But when you see something like this, you have to wonder.

    This is truly ridiculous! Are they saying they do not have counts by country of chargeability? If they don't then the whole leadership of the USCIS needs to be sent out of the door because they have never requested one of the most important pieces of information they need to establish cut off dates! Define priority date? Are you kidding me???...

    Oops, my comment should have gone to the FOIP request message.

    Greg,

    Unrelated but wanted to hear your opinion. On IV there is a reply to a FOIA from USCIS. The request was for pending I-485 per country of chargebility per EB visa category for India, China, Mexico, Philippines, ROW.

    USCIS writes back this reply that seems odd. First, they want $5000 to write a computer program for this. Fine. Then they claim the don't have a way to know country of chargebility until the I-485 is approved. If we believe that then the question: Do they actually physically go through the thousands of pending files to verify the priority date (PD) and chargebilty every month? Doesn't add up.

    Of course USCIS, also asks to define PD!!

    I just attached the IV thread, it thats okay.

    Thanks.

    LOL. They are so clueless they can't even run a few simple database queries...
    Maybe they should hire some people on H1 who can do the work for them ;-)

    May be they are just incompetent. Or may be they have relatives who were laid off over eight years ago, and could not get jobs in their field. Or may be they are friends with CIS, FAIR and other racist groups. Who knows? However, I do hope that none of them are taking bribes from anti-immigration groups!

    Would it help to get the FOIA request and the response published in a major news site? There may be some grey areas w.r.t. country of chargeability because of cross-chargeability and country of birth instead of country of citizenship but not knowing what priority date is sounds like a criminal offense. On what basis are the HRs and Senators writing hundreds of pages of immigration reform bills if the USCIS is unable to provide them with basic information about the backlogs?

    Will this be the tipping point for accountablity and reform!

    Or are my hopes high!

    may be Vivek Kundra can write the sql that USCIS tends to charge $5K.

    Hilarious.

    Bad news for foreign nurses waiting for legilative relief, Obama is against bringing in foreign nurses to US.

    Greg any comments on President's speech on nurse immigration. Can we kiss good bye to schedule A green card for next four/eight years?

    "Obama is against bringing in foreign nurses to US."

    No, he is not. See Greg's post about that.
    Please don't perpetuate misrepresentations in some newspapers.
    The President's job is for the American people. The H1 also has an education fee component to increase the number of Americans in technical fields. That hasn't meant that the H1 is gone.

    Greg,
    Are you deleting links of Immigrationvoice on your blog comments?

    I see a post someone posted about the FOIA request with a link to IV and its not there?

  14. Greg Siskind's Avatar
    I have not deleted any links to IV. Not sure what might be going on. Sorry.
  15. b's Avatar
    The link to IV is still there... I put one as my signature.

    My last post was one of those where I posted before I read the heading carefully. Sorry about that.

    Hard to see, since you only have one character as handle.
