BUSINESS WEEK REPORTS ON USCIS PROPOSAL

Rate this Entry

Businessweek is reporting on the USCIS proposal expected to be announced later today.

The question in the wake of the protests is what kind of compromise can
be reached. The Administration and Congress are likely to work out a
solution that will allow workers who completed their paperwork by July
2 to take their place in line, and the deadline for paperwork may be
extended into August. In addition, they are expected to address the
systematic historical problems so that all 140,000 green cards are used
each year going forward.

    Hopefully it is a deadline into August and also will approve re-capturing numbers

    There is another update on AILA site "Update (Such As It Is) on the Visa Bulletin Debacle" whats inside it?

    Thanks Greg for the businessweek piece.

    Lets hope something comes out today in our FAVOR.

    Does this mean that who ever has his papers ready to submit can go ahead and apply to USCIS? If thats the case, it will be a good thing. In my case I was also pursuing a labor substitution case besides my own. As per the June bulletin, the PD for the labor substitution was current (March 2004) and I was ready to submit when the July bulletin came out and my own Priority date became current (june 2006). As a natural choice i decided to pursue the case with my own labor certification. The next thing was frustration when all this fiasco happened.

    Below is the latest on the July Visa Bulletin mess just posted on AILA. It appears that an announcement will probably come today...let's see what it will be.
    (Posted on AILA, July 17,2007)
    "It appears somewhat likely that there will be an announcement today regarding efforts by the government to resolve the ongoing controversy over USCIS' refusal to accept employment-based adjustment of status filings. "Authoritative sources" are providing wildly varying reports regarding the content of the "fix," which may indicate any number of things, including the possibility that the government is not able to come to sufficient agreement to actually produce a "fix." AILA will post updates to InfoNet as the situation progresses."

    It is definately not a solution if only those who sent their papers by July 2nd, are allowed to file for their AOS. When the DOS released their original July 2007, they gave the entire month of July to file for AOS, now just because the USCIS messed up big time, it is unjust to punish those filers who were not going the Express Speed way and needed more time to arrange for their paperwork!!!

    Sounds to me like the government won't be able to give a "fix" that can be called a fix.

    Greg,

    I have read the government would make the announcement. My question is which agency would make the announcement? USCIS/DOS
  11. Greg Siskind's Avatar
    The announcement should come from CIS. I am guessing it will be in the form of a news release. These are usually emailed to media first and then posted on the web site. I am on their media list so I should get the email and will immediately publish.

    It could work out for the better if congress gets involved. They have the power to actually fix the problem permanently by changing the law. Of course, this could takes months and won't help with the current pickle USCIS finds themselves in. I keep hearing about some senators who are against recapturing numbers squandered by USCIS over the years. Who cares? I'm sure they would have 70 or 80 votes to do this, forget about the nay sayers.

    In regards to the Business Week article, I had my application ready to go June 29, but my attorney didn't send it because of the potential of getting into the "intent to immigrate" trap. Would I qualify to get my AOS processed?

    I filed mine on July 5th, and I have not heard anything from NSC.

    After todays announcement (which ever way it goes), I will they will make the decision either to accept or reject.

    I am hoping for the "ACCEPT" part with the announcement, but you never know - CIS/DHS/DOS/WH can do anything (looks like so far), they dont care whether its a law or not.. hahaha.

    About, Sen. Vitter, he was smart enough to bring his wife along in his apology press conference (well, atleast he learned something from KOBE BRYANT scandal).

    Isn't this just the right time to speculate? Can we get some clue?
