Employment 3rd skilled/professional workers - Worldwide and Filipino numbers move up five months to 1 May 2005. China jumps forward four months to 1 February 2002. India moves up three months to 1 October 2001. Mexico advances two months to 1 September 2002.



Employment 3rd unskilled - All numbers advance two weeks to 15 January 2003.



Employment 4th - The "other religious workers" category is listed as unavailable probably because Congress had not extended the category when the numbers were set. I presume the category will be current against next month.



EB-5 remains current.

    Greg,

    How about filing a FOIA request with USCIS or doing some heavy weight lifting with in AILA to get the number of pending EB applications based on priority date,per country,per category?

    Then you don't have to post these bulletins. Most of us and DOS can find out an approximate time we can get out of this queue and make decisions with our careers and personal life.

    IMO,VB is a disgrace to the most advanced country on the planet.

    Actually, CIS is a disgrace to this country...
    Before I came here, I never thought it possible that such a dysfunctional government agency could exist here.

    Does any one here know if Nursing is a STEM occupation? Would I be eligible to extend my OPT after the initial 12 months. Thanks.

    its name is government. but totally self funded system. see how they treat customers eventhough they know its a self funded system....Its a socialist firm in a capital system. government don't care.

    I think right wing republicans have pushed this agency to right and caused atleast some of the problems. I also heard that there is a case in supreme court which will eliminate MTR process. so we are deep into seeing big problems soon. Soon every legal worker is going to be out of status due to the inefficeiency of this agency. I personally think what americans have (what most other countries don't have) are intellectual brain and freedom/equal opportunity for all. That attracted scientists/doctors/engineers and others to this country. and they are the ones who will leave first when things go wrong.
    Already there is a great sentiment of overseas investments. If this goes further america, atleast for these immigrant folks america will be another middle east country . Thats a problem in middle east that's why they never became richer.

    one thing I noticed, however smart americans may be, government acts only under pressure. And one day when they realize that you have less number of brains due to all this they will act. but just like in the financial issue, it may be too late by then to improve the operational efficiency of this agency.
