THOUSANDS OF GREEN CARD CASES COULD GO DOWN THE DRAIN IF SENATE BILL PASSES

Rate this Entry

My friend Gary Endelman, a frequent ILW.com contributor, has pointed out that Section 502(d) allows green card and labor certification cases filed prior to the date of INTRODUCTION of the bill on May 15, 2007 and not all cases filed before the bill is enacted. This will now create a tremendous amount of uncertainty while people try and weigh whether to hold off and wait on Congress to enact the new law or file now before the point system kicks in.

    Could you please elaborate on this "Section 502(d) allows green card and labor certification cases filed prior to the date of INTRODUCTION of the bill on May 15th ...". And also do you mean 5/15/2007?

    Hi there,
    I'm trying to interpret the rules here but I'm lost as my subsituted labor reached USCIS on 5/16 and approved on 5/24 and still left in the quagmire and feel I'm screwed.

    The link here says the date of introduction as 5/18 www.visalaw.com/S1348_SSB.pdf
    Still the post above refers to Gary Endelman saying its 5/15.

    Please clarify if possible. I'm still at loss to believe USCIS can retroactively debar all approved I140s after that date. Sorry to vent here but I'm one of the thousands of always-legal-trying-to-be-immigrant of US and feel cheated when illegals enjoy benefits than us sincere-tax-paying-highly?-skilled-LABOR.

    Thanks in advance.

    Wow this new regulation is very frightening -especially for the people in the middle of the process. It would turn a whole lot of people up side down.

    It is really important to know what your options are when you deal with U.S. permanent residency. Hope the rules and regulations will be lighter in the days to come. Thanks for the post. Very detailed report.

    Does anybody know if I as a green card holder can change job field? I've had my Employment -based G.C for two years now. I'm a university prof. and my university sponsored my application. My question is, Can I change from the academia to, let's say, Import/Export or go work at Mac Donald's? Thank you

    For any serious immigration questions, I would recommend you to ask an expert like an immigration lawyer or consult the appropriate government web page. Many people online want to help, but the risk of receiving the wrong information is too large to take.

    To John, You can change your employment, but you have to do so through the proper channels, or risk repercussions. I would contact an attorney, or consult with whoever helped you make it to this point.
