    This is not a bad idea. But having to wait 5 years for your citizenshipis is only a minor inconvenience compared to all the other more pressing problems we have right now with the retrogression. So I think we should be more concerned with issues like visa recapture, getting USCIS to be more efficient so the visas will not go to waste each year etc. If we can get all these things acheived then your suggestion would be a nice icing on the cake.

    I was wondering if any one in the core or other members think about the next step towards getting citizenship after passing the hurdles of getting the green card. If a person is here for 10 years and then get his green card (average period), then he need to wait for another 5 years to get the citizenship. 15 years for this process in a person's life is too much.
    IV Core can push or lobby for a law which can make the person a US citizen, if he is living in US for 10 years legally without any issues and paying taxes for the entire period. It is just my idea.

    The good thing is eliminating the country quota is always lumped with doubling the total quota and/or recapturing previous years waste, so hopefully the affect evens itself out.. Eliminating the coutry qouta by itself is a disaster.

    the elimination of country quotas alone only redistributes pain...where our goal is to end everyone's pain. we asked for all the measures on our agenda and we support the whole package together. we want a better immigration system for everyone.

    Hi Guys,

    Need some advice regarding two stocks.

    1) USO -- ETF for crude Oil. It is at about $29.00 but alst year in July it was about 120. IS it a good investment bet. I know I might have to hold it till summer of 2010.

    2) HNSN -- Biomedical device maker. It is the next ISRG, as the reports indicate. They make the sensie robotic cartherer devices. No one else in the world does that. What do you guys think of this ? It is now at $4.50, at its peak it was about $37.00

    Thanks for all the input.


    USO is a typical criude ETF like AIG Crude - SCO etc .....HSNS is another medical Miracle company ....can pull rabbits outta hats (But hey this is a day traders analysis ....Not an investors)

    My investor side says there are other better(safer) longs for your money that this one.

    US Senate Committe on Small Business and Enterprenership (

    Senate Passes Key Funding for Women�s Business Centers
    Wednesday, January 24, 2007

    WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today the U.S. Senate unanimously passed an amendment sponsored by Senators John Kerry (D-Mass.), Olympia J. Snowe (R-Maine), and John Sununu (R-N.H.) to create a grant program for established, successful Women's Business Centers around the country. The provision is now part of the minimum wage legislation being considered on the Senate floor.
    "I've been working for 21 years on the Committee to promote expanded entrepreneurial opportunities for women and secure funding for these centers which help turn ideas into jobs, start-ups into success," said Kerry, Chairman of the Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship. "I cannot stress enough the vital role Women's Business Centers play in cities all around the country, like Boston and Worcester. This amendment ensures we will be providing women-owned small businesses the tools they need to grow and flourish."

    "We cannot afford to ignore, or minimize, the extraordinary contributions America's business women are making to our economy, our culture, and our future. The achievements of women entrepreneurs are undeniable. Women-owned firms generate almost $2.5 trillion in revenues. They employ more than 19 million workers and are the fastest growing segment of today�s economy. In my home state of Maine alone, more than 63,000 women-owned firms generate an astounding $9 billion in sales," said Snowe. "Today, I am pleased to join Small Business Committee Chairman John Kerry and Senator Sununu with this amendment so women small business owners have the resources, the support and the opportunities they need and deserve."

    Senator Sununu said: "Women's Business Centers contribute to the strength and diversity of the small business community, as we know from the great example set by Portsmouth's facility. Centers that have performed at a high level should have the option of applying for additional help to enable their important work to continue. The Senate�s action today marks an important step in the effort to preserve critical funding for WBCs in New Hampshire and across the country."

    The amendment is similar to language that passed out of the Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship last summer as part of S. 3778, the comprehensive Small Business Administration reauthorization bill, which is based on the Women's Business Center Sustainability Pilot Program Kerry created in 1999.

    Specifically, the amendment allows established Women's Business Centers to apply for 3-year grants on an ongoing basis. This permanent stream of federal funding is critical to helping the Centers secure matching private funds. This amendment also prohibits the Centers from sharing information about their clients without their consent, unless the information is required by a court order or to do an audit of the center.

    Since people would be filing taxes early next year, and most expect some returns from Uncle Sam, how about starting a thread to pledge $ 200 from tax returns?

    Also, someone had once suggested IV set up a mechanism via Pay Pal to make auto deduction of say $ 20-25 every month. That should get it more continuing contributions and help even out IV's cash flow.

    My apologies for replying to a posting from like a million years ago :-)

    But, I really do not understand why you have to knock Saralayar like that in your reply. What has he said that is so offensive or disgusting?

    I really see no problem with his/her post, he was just asking the IV community if his issue can be addressed or not. Its up to the community as a whole to decide what to do with it.

    Relax, the sky is not falling down on you!

    I am surprised, but are you really a member of the "high skilled" community or are you just faking it to be on this forum?
    I don't think you should embarrass your self or your profession, though we do not know your identity.

    i have no idea what ur talking about. i just looked at all the bulletins on the dos website and there was no question of retrogression till january 2005 when india and china
    retrogressed to jan 2002 for moved forward till june2005 (retrogressed to june2002) before it became unavailable.

    Finally retrogression as we know it hit on october 2005 where eb2 moved to 99 and eb3 to 98

    so where does "brief retrogression" in 2003 happen?

    I contributed $50 earlier today, your post has inspired me to make an offer, like what Anurakt has made."I will contribute $500 to IV if we sign-up 20 members for recurring $50/m OR 200 members for $20/m, whichever is earlier."

    Alright the game is on then !! Let's see if the IVians have any fuel left or if they will run out of gas today....

    Hello Gurus,
    I have a question as follows. I was with an old company and transferred the H1 in the 9th year to the new company. I already had my Labor and I-140 approved with the old company (EB3-I Category).
    After switching to this new company I had to start my PERM all over again as I missed the July 2007 boat and could not file for I-485. My new company is based in L.A.-California. I am already drawing my salary from new company. They only have office in L.A. I work for them from my home office in NJ. Today the company's attorney called & asked me that I needed to have L.A. residential address as it is required to be stated on the application. I have no intentions to move to L.A. in near future. I am in a fix now as to how to go about this. I will appreciate all you gurus and experts advice and also please advise me repercussions if any.
    Please help.

    Deadline = April 30th, 2011
    Goal = 5000 votes on survey (see I-485 filing w/o current PD thread) and momentum to continue with this campaign.The survey is a platform to gather and push for launching action items. Based on response by 04/30/2011 - IV will decide whether to even proceed with initiative or not.
    Actions - 1) Vote on survey.
    2)Email with PD, ph#,email & subject "I485 filing impacted”,
    3)Print/Circulate Fliers and spread FB, wiki link (see "support thread")

    My attorney sent an email inquiry to DOL regarding my case. Within less than 12 hours a response was received -


    Case: (A-xxxxx-xxxxx) is still in process and official correspondence will be forthcoming.

    Applications are processed in the order they are received. Once the Analyst reaches your case in their queue, based on the principles of FIFO (first in first out) it will be reviewed and official correspondence will be issued.

    However, because each application is unique, processing times may vary depending on the specific circumstances of the case.

    The policy of the U.S. DOL/ETA National Office prohibits the expediting of applications.

    We apologize for the delay.

    blah blah...


    It probably wouldn't take them much longer to just approve or deny my case. It's amazing how they are quick with anything that is NOT productive. Don't you just love it when they used the term "FIFO" as though they knew what it really meant? I am a positive person but it's sad and enraging to me that I have to subject certain aspects of my life to a system so dysfunctional and about as modern as Flintstone's automobile. It's said that governments are designed to be bureaucratic, which I do not disagree with. But this system is terribly impaired and down right chaotic from time to time. That is beyond bureaucracy.

    Many people in this society sometimes take on a very convenient attitude toward this issue. "If you don't like it you can leave." But on the other hand they turn around and bark just as madly when they think the government is not doing something right that matters to them. This is not about staying or leaving or any other such choices in life. This is about equal rights. This is simply about people getting their jobs done. To what's broken and what's rotten in the immigration system, I say we all work for a paycheck and we all have a job to do. Difference is I make sure I deliver what I'm paid for and you aren't capable of the same. For this reason I'll still be around right here long after you are eliminated and replaced.

    Sorry for the 'rant' after I've exercised the only tool available in this situation, email inquiry to DOL, and received a totally meaningless but well expected result. Feel free to do the same then you can post it here so we can compare and see if they made any typo. I doubt they will because it has to be a simple copy-n-paste job...but again with them you never know. :o

    Update from Infopass at Cleveland office - We were told that our files are with an officer right now. Also, we called to speak with a rep. and were told that our Service Request will be processed on August 18th (we initiated it on August 3rd). Apart from this, we have contacted both our senators and congressman. In addition, I sent an email to and got a standard reply. I think I have fired on all cylinders and will be hoping that one of them will work.

    Keep us posted.

    I spoke with IO on 3rd, initiated SR on 4th, initiated congressional request today i.e. 5th. My Infopass is on 11th. Will complete 10 years in US on 13th. Birthday few days after that. So I guess something should work...ROFL...

    PD: December 2005.

    What is the problem with you?. Why you are so angry?. I am really a high skilled than you and think logically. I hold a highest degree from a very good university. It is just my idea and for this there is no necessity to be a high skilled or not. Watch your words and be polite OK?.:mad:
    Offcourse, you have only 8 posts in this forum and very much junior to this community.

    I believe there are good number of such cases. Besides me, I know there is one more person from Indiana who is also in same boat. In my case also, I was stuck in labor for more than 2 years and then had to wait for visa number being available for more than 15 months after I140 approval. As I mentioned in my first mail, my son was aged out by just 12 days ( after considering 29 days of I40 processing time ).I did not file 485 for him along with my application as I did not want to check chances with his F1 status.
    I would be more than willing to do whatever is required to gather support for our cause. If some one wants to send personal mail , pl do that . We can have telephonic conversation after that to see how we can join to-gether.

    I am ROW-3, RD 06/18/07, ND 07/19/07. Received EAD cards, finger prints done for me and my family members.

    This month my priority date for a family based petition became current and I do not know if it is wise to apply for GC using the family petition or not.

    I understand taht I can onluy have one pending case at all times, meaning that I will withdrew the employment based petition.

    If and only if, I decide to apply for GC using the family based petition, is the name check will be a problem and may take for ever?

    Feed back please.

    This is way cool. Time to answer RFE by USCIS !!

    Macaca, if we till now we have only 110 members with a minimum of $20. How can we expect 100 members with $200. Do you think we have 100 x $200 in the team?. That is why we have a simple goal of $20 a month for 1000 people.
