DHS Suddenly Moves Back India, China EB-2 Filing Dates. Why? By Roger Algase

Rate this Entry
The presumed immigration restrictionist moles inside the DHS whom Immigration Daily's September 25 editorial predicted would try to change the October 2015 visa bulletin in order to force many immigrants, especially from India and China, to wait longer in order to file for adjustment of status have apparently won out.

On the same day, September 25, DHS issued a revised October visa bulletin which significantly moves back I-485 filing acceptance priority dates in certain popular categories. This will come as bad news to many applicants from India, China and the Philippines.

Employment 2nd preference immigrants from China, who would have been able to file for adjustment of status next month without regard to their priority date, according to the earlier version of the October 2015 visa bulletin, have now had their the filing acceptance priority date moved back to January 1, 2013.

For India, the news is even worse, as the filing acceptance date priority for the EB-2 category has been moved back all the way to July 1, 2009. For the Philippines the I-485 filing acceptance dates for the EB-3 and Other Workers categories have been moved back to January 1, 2010.

What benefit the United States could imaginably gain by forcing legal immigrants from certain Asian countries, who in most cases have already been or are waiting to be certified by the US Department of Labor as applicants who will not deprive US workers of a job opportunity, to wait several years longer to apply for work and travel permits, was not explained in the revised Visa Bulletin.

    Are you really serious?

    If these people do not like the October Visa Bulletin they are very welcome to go back to the shitholes they came from. Nobody will be missing them Lots of US-born specialists who are actively looking for work in this area.

    By the way, do you realize how pathetic you are? Immigration lawyer who preaches for bringing in more prospective clients on the ilw.com website

    Let us hope that there is no one working for USCIS who shares your anti-immigrant bias.

    You have also apparently not read my final sentence above. Most, if not all of the people affected by the longer waiting times have already been certified by the US Labor Department as applicants who are not competing against US workers because they are being sponsored for jobs for which no US workers are available.

    If you think that these Labor Certifications are easy to get, then you do not know very much about American immigration law.

    I might also respectfully point out that this site is meant for discussions of legal issues, not for knee-jerk expressions of Know-Nothing style prejudice.
