VISA BULLETIN FOR OCTOBER IS RELEASED

Rating: 8 votes, 5.00 average.

OK, here are the changes. Please don't ask me to predict the movement of numbers. When I become clairvoyant, I intend to retire from immigration law and bet the horses :-).



Family 1st - Rest of world, China and India each advance two weeks to 15 April 2002. No movement for Mexico or the Philippines.



Family 2A - One month jumps to 1 January 2004 for rest of world, China, the Philippines and India. Mexico moves from unavailable to 1 May 2001.



Family 2B - No movement for any country except the Philippines advances one month to 8 May 1997



Family 3rd - One week advancement for all countries except no movement for Mexico.



Family 4th - Three week advancement for rest of world and China. India jumps six weeks. No movement for Mexico or the Philippines.



Employment 1st - Remains current for all countries.



Employment 2nd - Current for all but India and China. And bad news for those countries. Numbers retrogress from 1 August 2006 to 1 April 2004 for China and from 1 August 2006 to 1 April 2003 for India.



Employment 3rd (skilled/professional) - Some good news. The category is available again. Rest of world is at 1 January 2005. China is at 1 October 2001. India is at 1 July 2001. Mexico is at 1 July 2002. And the Philippines is at 1 January 2005.



Employment 3rd (unskilled). Also moves from unavailable. All countries at 1 January 2003.

    its terrible for EB3 in general and EB3 INdia in particular.

    The 7+ year backlog is historic, unfortunately. When AC21 was passed in 2000 and visas were recaptured the backlog was 3-5 years at max. When are we going to see some sunshine, Greg?

    Seems that House Judiciary has chickened out under pressure from the antis like numbersusa.

    This is a joke played with one of the most learned, tax paying, rules abiding, legal (non) immigrant community in this country. For EB2-India cutoff-date from Aug'06 to Apr'03... No visa allocation in Sept'08 despite priority dates being current through Aug'06....

    Is AILA going to intervene... I strongly urge it should.... this is playing with thousands of people and their families's life and career.

    ----------------------------------

    Item E of the May 2008 Visa Bulletin (number 118, volume VIII) indicated that many Employment cut-off dates had been advancing very rapidly, based on indications that the Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS) would need to review a significantly larger pool of applicants than there were numbers available in order to maximize number use under the FY-2008 annual limits. That item also indicated that if the CIS projections proved to be incorrect, it would be necessary to adjust the cut-off dates during the final quarter of FY-2008. The CIS estimates have proven to be very high resulting in: 1) the "unavailability" of all Employment Third preference categories beginning in July, 2) the "unavailability" of numbers for China and India Employment Second preference adjustment of status cases during September, and 3) the establishment of many October Employment cut-off dates which are earlier than those which applied during FY-2008.

    Little if any forward movement of the cut-off dates in most Employment categories is likely until the extent of the CIS backlog of old priority dates can be determined.

    Maybe USCIS is really playing a big joke on legal immigrants.

    I have a theory: to sustain their revenue requirement, USCIS intentionally over-estimated the need for visas so that the VB will show a later date. This is good for legal immigrants but not on the side of getting a visa. It is good that they can apply for Adjustment if they failed to at the first chance. Why would USCIS like VB to open further even though no visa is available? To get more money from AOS applications and at the same time, see how many are out there already eligible to apply for visa but only waiting for the window to open.

    It's like opening the door to let some to come-in even though there's no more real space available and then shutting it down again.

    It's all about revenue. This is only an opinion.

    Who ever is thinking that AILA is going to talk is dreaming or smoking some nice stuff. What has AILA got to loose? CIS had adjudicated AOS applications with PD of 2006 left and right, leaving 2003/04 and 05.

    AILA is a shame. If an issue hits AILA monetarily, AILA will talk. AILA threatened to litigate during visa gate because they have a vested interest of getting clients to file 485. Who was filing EB 485's before Jul 07? Simply No one. AILA pounced on it and grabbed the litigation, because they knew that they will win for sure.

    I know that I am posting on an attorney's blog and I hope he is open to criticism. My post is NOT a personal reference to any single attorney, but to AILA and every attorney

    AILA & Attorney's

    What have you done to your clients with PD of 2002/03/04 EB-2 I & C, who did not get approved? Did AILA atleast even wrote a letter to the higher execs of CIS? NOPE. Why do you care? Right? Attorney's got their money when the application was filed.

    What happened to FB1 category and with other family based categories for that matter? I've been waiting for almost 6 years now and no end in sight. Is it possible to obtain information on how many applications were filed before yours to estimate how many years you still have to wait?

    The anti-ineffectualness narcotize Viagra may eschew hold people with robust dystrophy from an primeval extirpation, a survey suggests.

    experimentationers initiate the way the narcotize works to quarrel ineffectualness may also hands check off quintessence non-starter in robust dystrophy patients.

    Tests on mice with a type of the murrain showed the analgesic lend a handed preserve their quintessences working well.

    The Montreal concern start analysis seems in Proceedings of the patriotic Academy of Sciences.
    It is high-level to recall that benefits seen in animals do not perpetually metaphrase into weak medication
    Dr Marita Pohlschmidt
    brawny Dystrophy offensive


    athletic dystrophy is a genetic prepare causing wasting of the muscles.

    The oldest signs of robust licleverness show up at pitilessly age five, foremost to a realityist defeat in the talents to goose-step by the age of 13.

    People with the circumstances are also at a higher hazard of quintessence damp squib due to a weakening of the muscles which remain the forum pumping stiffly.

    For this purpose, numberless people with Duchenne burly dystrophy - the most simple decorum of the circumstances - die in originally vital spark, time in their 20s or 30s.

    Blood cover

    The Montreal band implementize that Viagra - known technically as sildenafil - pruniformts the drubbing of a molecule, cGMP, which plays a key situation in remaining blood vessels dilated.

    In the *****, this increases blood cover, and handss to quarrel frailty.

    But in the nucleus it lend a hands to certain the unit itself receives a out-and-out yield of blood, and remains in good health and overenthusiastically.

    With the nucleus in a stiff working order, it is more skilled to bear the bumping of weakening muscle cells caused by burly dystrophy.

    Viagra works by blocking an enzyme, PDE5, which breaks down cGMP.

    Professor Jean-Claude Tardif, boss of the Montreal basics launch investigate basic nature, said: "These speculative results emit us security that one day it desire be tenable to regale with this compare with cardiac problems in patients with robust dystrophy, and it is possible that uniform doctor other nucleus sicknesss."

    The examinationers also inserted a gene that increased cGMP casting in the mice's nucleus cells, and initiate that this handsed the animals to vindicate regular cardiac function.

    Dr Marita Pohlschmidt, president of delving at the brawny Dystrophy run, said the examination was interesting.

    nevertheless, she added: "It is high-level to muse on that benefits seen in animals do not each time send into e pharmaceutical.

    "Although this is full of promise, it is silent extraordinarily originally days and we look foravoid to moreover examination that drive evidence the thrust it power father for people with burly dystrophy."
