EB-2 CATEGORY FOR INDIANS TO BECOME UNAVAILABLE IN FEBRUARY VISA BULLETIN

Rate this Entry

More bad news for Indian advance degree professionals as green card availability will be going away for a while. We continue to punish a country for producing too many great professional workers in fields where employers have demonstrated they need these folks.

    Nice message ain't it?

    We only need 3000 or so highly educated people from India every year. It really doesn't matter if you have a Masters or PhD or make 6 digit salaries or even want to start a business!

    Yeah. That was expected. Too many Indians jumped from EB-3 onto the EB-2 bandwagon. Now EB-3 is much better for Indians. Are we going to see the reverse trend---Indians moving to lower-paid, low-skill positions on EB-3 to speed up their green cards?

    No, I think we are we going to see people moving to lower-paid (relative to the US), high-skill positions in India. And this will be good for the rest of the world.

    If a $2500 car is possible, what other miracles await us if we apply our engineering skills within India?

    2803 and that includes families
    so really only about 1500 advanced degree individuals are allowed a GC from India in a year- the rest can rot on perpetual and restrictive visas for 10 years or so after they apply- whatever the effect on their skills and careers. they will be americans in 10 years, it's not like they are debarred- just stunted and frustrated. someone needs to answer what good that does to anyone- workers, employers and yes..americans??

    oh yeah...and as for assimilation, they still can't be citizens after 15 years of legal stay- takes another 5 years to check "character" after the GC arrives. why is it that all this brings home to me the sheer hypocrisy of those that oppose relief and reform in skilled immigartion?

    ALIPAC, that wonderful PAC that's "Americans FOR legal immigration" at least purportedly so, even opposes the IV campaign for administrative changes to ease lives during the waiting. they are urging their members to write letters against it. apparently giving 3 year EAD/AP and offering lattitude on job portability with an EAD amounts to "opening the doors wider"! so much for being "anti illegal immigrant" only.
