AILF TO USCIS: WE'RE READY TO RUMBLE

Rate this Entry

MITdoc, an alert reader, just posted the link to AILF's press release warning USCIS that it has finished preparing its lawsuit and will file it depending on what the proposed solution is that is offered by USCIS (maybe today, maybe tomorrow - who knows?).  According to AILF

AILF will review any proposals by the
Administration to resolve this issue, and will determine the best
course of action in light of those proposals. While we remain hopeful
that the Administration will take the actions necessary to avoid the
filing of the lawsuit, further delays or incomplete solutions will
compel us to move forward with litigation.



We thank the hundreds of people -
intending immigrants and their lawyers - who have contacted us to be
plaintiffs and support the litigation. We received emails and calls
from more than 500 people in the last two weeks. Your efforts have
enabled us to prepare a very strong challenge to the government's
actions.

    BTW what happened to Zoe? Did they ignore her again?

    So AILA's attitude is clear. Then dos and uscis need reconsider their offer, that is the reason the goverment's annoucement is delayed.

    regardless of any solution given by USCIS the root of this fiasco has to be found out.

    I think the AILF should go ahead and file the complaint without wasting any more time. So far AILF threat to file a complaint has had little or no effect on USCIS/DOS from what we have been reading for the past few days. Also AILA does seem to be really excited about the anouncement from USCIS/DOS giving an impression they already have a good idea of what the decision could be.

    That's right. AT least we have something to look forward to in case no announcement is made or will ever be made.

    I would think that Zoe Lofgren is waiting to see what this annoucnement is. I do not think she has let this issue slide - remember, she was an immigration attorney and a law lecturer and she knows our pain. She will evaluate and then initiate a congressional hearing on the matter unless this CIS announcement is good and fair. Let's wait and see.

    I could be wrong as I don't understand the whole political game going on here. I hope it isn't the case where each organization that is trying to help we legals have different demands and points for negotiation...I hope the lawsuit pressure doesn't take away something that was better for us in the long run...assuming we had a good deal worked out...

    I dont want to be pesimistic, but reading between lines I see they will no file any law suit. I've read in the Chicago tribune that a Polish woman and another 3 persons supported by their attorneys already filed a lawsuit...

    In my concept when this GVMT says NO means NO. just look how easy they turned down the dreams of more than 12 millions of persons... now imagine how easy they can turn he hopes of 100 thousands of guys looking for the GC.

    Im sorry if Im too pesimistic. but it is what it is...

    here is the announcment from IV
    DHS will be rescinding its July 2 update and the initial July Visa Bulletin will take effect for 31 days - i.e., all employment-based green card categories (except for the "Other Workers" category) will be "current" and CIS will accept applications through August 17.

    DHS will issue a press release to this effect later today.

    Based on IV's update, the deal that has been negotiated is that july filings will be allowed till aug 17th...
    Great news but I wish there was something more permanent too..This time the fiasco helped us get a lot of attention otherwise nobody cares for the legals...

    The following "Immigration Voice announcement" cearly proves that AILA has made a last minute frantic attempt to save their face by updating their website that they are ready to file a Lawsuit - Ha! Ha!

    Sorry Greg - i know you too are a lawyer. But this AILA was not doing anything from July 2nd to July 17th apart...

    Everything done by Zoe Lfgren amd IV ... Go IV GO.. Go IV Go..
    Way to Go...!!!!!!!

    In this fight everyone seems to have forgotton the people stuck in backlogs for labor clearance.People who applied for labor in 2001,2002 are still stuck in PBEC or DBEC.And now everyone says that they process based on Receipt date and not on PD.So all thse years who have held on to PD what'll happen to them?

    Hopefully it's true, fingers crossed! Let's try and stay positive folks.

    IV updates have always been positive and I hope it remains that way. Given the roller-coaster ride each of us have been through it would be an icing on the cake if USCIS/DOS issues a press release.
