    Almost all Hyderabad house hold has one or more members live in US, who save atleast 15l/year and invest a lot in homeloand which would translate into sustainable stability in AP,India.

    Unless US govt. declares bankruptcy, AP real estate would not burst so it would be safe to invest in AP.....

    There are many discussions on immigration (some in favor and some totally misrepresenting the legal immigration).Mind you many of the ordinary citizens are voting on these posts, which indicate the popularity. Obviously this is one way of increasing the popularity of posts highlighting our case (ala Digg)

    Only a few of the immigration posts are addressing our pain points. One eg is something like: Please help the Immigration System

    Please vote for them and champion the advantages for all by commenting and voting.

    I believe at the moment this is achievable by all. Please act!

    Looking at the table in immigration-law.com, it appears that 33% have been certified and 33% have been closed/denied of the present 67% that have been processed. Those are absolute numbers (it is not 33% of 67% closed, it is 33% of the total 330K). Hence of the 220K cases processed, 110K have been certified and 110K closed/denied.

    If the same trend holds, it will be 165K certified (out of a total of 330K). Add the 1.1 multiplying factor and we are looking at 346K total GCs. This is 2.5 years total. But USCIS seems to be sending off excess EB 1-2 visas to EB3 ROW so retrogression will continue for EB2 India and China.

    I could not help but to post all my research. i myself recovered money successfully from ex employer.now i am 100% confident that i can handle all claims(only when i am right and have proper documentation) without a lawyer.never file a case in first step.this is how one can go.....
    1) complain to State DOL (not federal dol) with the one page filled form and required documents.i faxed the form at 9pm in the night and next morning at 8:30 am i got a call from the investigator to verify my complaint.i said yes.by afternoon he called the employer and asked abt the complaint.at that time my state had only 2 investigators for whole state but see the quick response.i asked investigator how he is going to proceed.he said over 80% are solved on phone.this is how they do it.the investigator calls employer and says i received complaint like this and do u accept or not.if u do not accept we have to come to ur office and look at all the records.if we find more violations we will issue 100$(my state had this fee) for each violation.if u accept u have to pay 100$ for this violation....take a guess what the employer says....by next day afternoon investigation was done.then state dol sends violation notice to employer and employer pays that.after 1 week i got complete documents of the investigation and a letter saying this will help in ur civil case to recover money.
    2) i waited for some time to give my employer time if he is going to give my money.but i did not get.next thing i did is went to federal dol Wage and hour(W&H) office which was near to my home.u have to remember federal dol w&H works different from state dol.state dol investigates and imposes fine etc and sends all the resulting documents to u.federal dol w&h takes the complaint and works to settle the wages between u and employer.for my case employer was willing to pay 5 times less than what i was supposed to get.dol w&h called me and said r u willing to settle for this amount.i said no and i will go to court.again i got the documents after 2 or 3 days.
    3) here u have option to go to court to file a civil case or complain to ICE.ICE is little serious thing and i thought i will do that if i run out all my options.
    4) filing a civil case in small claims court is very easy if u follow right steps.u have to know company exact info as per secretary of state filing. search secretary of state "ur state" in google and u will get ur state secretary of state web site. search the company name and find ur exact company name,agent name and address.
    also,u have to file in the same county where ur employer is in or if ur employer is out of state u might file where u r working(some like that).i would ask the clerk whether i can file this case here.if its wrong county,ur case disposition will be rejected.u will waste fees and u have to file again in right county.even though i found all the info and asked the clerk 5 times,she told me the wrong info.ofcourse i recovered that money too.each state has limit on small claims court.mine was like 7000$ and 7500$ was the limit. as per the law if u did not get ur salary within 48hrs or the next pay date of the company u r entitled to get 3 times what u r owed.u need to write a letter saying why u r filing and how much u want.this letter is very important and write what documents proof u have.i wrote dol investigation was already done and i have all the documents proof and hence i am claiming 21,000$ as per the law.since small claims court has 7500$ limited, judge will give u 7500$ when u win the case.after filing the case employer will have 30 days and mine was settled out of court for the full amount he owed including the court costs.if the amount is more than small claims court amount u can file in appeals court.u can defend ur self and no need of attorney as DOL already completed investigation successfully in favor of u.there is no way employer can deny the dol investigation results.
    5) if going to court is too intimidating go for ICE and ice does all the work for u.but ICE is a very serious organization and u know the rest.....
    do not communicate with the employer by phone or by in person.if u want, communicate thru e-mail as there will be proof and be very courteous,professional as if u r the victim.keep all the e-mails and replies if at all u go to court and show the judge.judges always gives benefit of doubt to employee in these cases and to tenants in landlord-tenant cases regarding lease,deposits etc.
    the negative thing abt going to court in the first step is u do not have proof that ur employer did not give checks.usually employers run the pay roll regularly but they do not give u the checks.they save all those checks with the right date when u were supposed to get but they do not give.when u go to the court in first step what they do is show copies of those checks and tell the judge i gave the checks on time and u did not deposit.the burden is on the employee to deposit the checks on right time.so,basically u r screwed at that time.all these employers know that.that is why u have to be calm and diligent so that u do not do this silly mistake.
    this is how i went and i read a lot on the internet before doing.hope this helps.please do research and act accordingly as each case may differ...
    I am not an attorney...i am just an immigrant stuck in GC Q like u guys....

    Thanks for posting your experience. Good job.

    Folks - another update on my case.

    As i had been following up my case with the help from my Senator's office, they requested USCIS to give a written decision on my MTR.

    Here is the written decision that USCIS gave

    "On March 27, 2009, you filed a motion to reopen. You indicated the use of the applicant's ability to "port" under section 106(c) of the American Competitiveness in the 21st Century Act (AC21). The requirements were met and the motion to reopen was approved.

    CONCLUSION: It is concluded that the grounds stated for denial have been overcome.

    ORDER: It is ordered that the motion to reopen be approved. The Form I-485 is "pre-adjudicated" awaiting visa availability."

    I hope this encourages people to go ahead with AC21

    I am an IV old timer and I was wondering where the IV old timers were?

    black_logs, ragz4u. logiclife, waldenpond, berkleybee, shilpa?

    How many core IV members have already received their GCs besides Aman, just curious?

    Of late is there anything of note even happening on the lobbying front? IV seems to have become another Immigration Portal kinda website where people are now posting all sorts of info, some of it not even immigration related.

    It would be nice if someone in the core team updated the rest of us, who cannot join the state chapters due to personal reasons on the website.

    AFAIK, logiclife and pappu are just temporarily off IV due to some other priorities and will get back on board with a big bang soon. How do I know? I spoke to pappu recently.

    Other core members, I am not sure, but will let a core member answer :)

    The oath of allegiance is:

    "I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen;

    Question: Once one takes US citizenship s/he promises to renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate or state then how come one confidently say that s/he would still be in love to a home country?

    Exactly my thoughts. However, that does not mean that I am not proud of heritage and culture of my country-of-origin.

    The vast majority of people are here on these forums for getting their GC and USC.

    I appreciate everyone who has congratulated me. Thank you so much. Please note that I sill belong to legal immigrant community and nothing can change that.

    Good Luck to everyone (and that includes people who have given me red dots with comments) and I hope you get your GC soon.

    Proud to be an Indian-American and legal immigrant.

    I know some here just cant hear/consider another point of view, but by calling me names and being so upset, they only convince me further. GC pursuit has taken over lives of some. I so wish one had better pursuits in life.
    And bout calls for kicking me out, this section for analysis/discussion. If you want to throw everyone out whom you dont agree with, rename it to 'agree with me' section.

    Lets not fight here. People in pain will cry, whether in EB2 or EB3 or any.
    The system is broken and we must make sure its fixed.
    Hope we know how people came here 60 years back. They got citizenship on day one. So what do we do. Things change, but there must be an order.

    We must contribute to an organization thats trying to help us. Lets not be different to it. We are not living in any ideal world.
    Did I contribute till now.. no..
    Was I trying to in the last two weeks.. YES..
    Let me do it tomorrow for sure.

    I would love to go back to my country i.e India but the problem is there are already tons of people in there and I seriously think they are more brilliant, intelligent and hardworking than me.

    If I go back I would be burden to that country so I prefer to stay back with my lazy and un-motivated attitude and also the environment suites me for getting me laid every time I need one.

    Sounds good.

    Zooooom ?? Do you want to open the thread (please add the important points of the conversation going on this thread as your first message, so we can repeat that over and again for people who join later).

    Zoooom & Anzerraja:
    The core membership may be modest and may not want to speak out much on this issue. It becomes our prerogative to drive this.

    Lets do this. Zooom do you mind opening a separate thread, "Reimburse past expenses to Aman & other IV Core members" or something like that. Please post a message asking people to "pledge" an amount towards that effort. Can you two drive this effort. I am also available for assistance.

    We will update members who pledge how to finalize their pledge by any of the following methods based on subsequent expert advice:
    1) Should they contribute to IV directly
    2) Send a personal check to Aman.
    3) Other method like IV reimbursing Aman and others from the common donation corpus.

    He is not talking about Indians, rather he talks about H1b in general. Since India does not have equivalent social security system, US Govt and Indian Govt did not sign any contracts. Other countries like Canada / UK / AUS have mutual agreement between them and US for transferring the social security paid in US to be transferred to their home country if the alien returns to the home country.

    Even Indian Govt (P.Chidambaram) I beleive is working with US Govt to get these SS paid by Indians who have returned back to India. Since the US system and Indian system does not allow with the current rules and regulations to transfer the amount, it is stalled. may be down the line even India would work with US to get these amounts back.

    I heard something like this, but not sure: If you decide to move back to India, you can fill out a form and submit to INS/IRS which states that you will never come back to US for any reason. If you do it, they will pay your SS money back. I dont know anymore about this.

    I agree. this kind of slander should be fought. Not only SS, but Medicare, Unemployment, and Federal state and city taxes.
    Besides getting benefit from taxes, we cannot avail of any of the other benefits (SS, Medicare, Unemployment)
    A lawsuit should shut them all up, and also show we are not weak or helpless.
    We are not slaves, and unlike illegals do not have to beg for mercy. After suffering the entire immigration process, to hear lies like this should not be taken lying down

    I have contributed $200 to the Omnibus fund drive and intend to contribute a lot more in the coming months. However, I would not have been a member of IV if this were a paid site.

    I prefer that the contributions are voluntary and I am an example of someone who joined IV as a member and then CHOOSE to contribute to the cause. If IV had asked me to become a member by paying $200, I certainly would not have joined.

    I vote to keep the site free and allow free flow of information. By making this a paid site we hurt the cause that IV is fighting for and we hurt potential members who would contribute.

    I want to ask members who have contributed $500 - $1000, if this site asked that much for you to join would you have joined? If so would you continue to contribute after paying this much money? After paying money to a pay site there is a sense of entitlement that people feel. They feel that they have already paid their due and they will not contribute additional funds thinking that they have already paid once when choosing to be a member.

    I urge the administrators and core member to please keep this site voluntary and free.

    Actually I know someone who got it even faster.

    This Pakistani guy came to the US in 2004 fresh off boat to do Masters. Completed Masters by mid 2005, immediately landed job at MS, they started his GC immediately in EB2 ROW and by end of 2005 he had GC in hand. It was ridiculous.

    How many days is it taking for labor to clear these days.

    investing on IT?

    are they just adding equipments or are they migrating to a new system? i hope they are not migrating so that they don't have to deal with the learning curve.
    one of the Justification for Fee increase given by USCIS Director was for investing in hiring new personel and e-processing. I guess they will try to convert some of the applications to filed electronically , which would free up their resources , who will probably focus on backloggs

    Offcourse this is my thought.:D

    Please do update us if any of you or your respective attorneys have received the notice from USCIS. I am in touch with the attorney of my previous company and hope to have something next week. Will keep you posted but looks like USCIS has started this exercise only recently as we have not seen this kind of posts in the past or as SmartBoy mentioned, many of us might not have created a portfolio to check the status of all the approvals we received so far on our immigration journey.

    If that is correct (same category spill over) EB3 has a very very distant hope of getting some spill over when EB3 ROW becomes C and does not use all numbers. I was of the opinion before that the un-used numbers from EB3 ROW will go to EB1 and then EB2 India.

    My best wishes to everyone too....

    08-19 04:52 PM
    And that's never gonna happen. All Green Card seekers have stopped filing in EB-3, they are somehow managing to file in EB-2 by hook or by crook. So until congress changes any Law, every single spill over visa will be consumed by EB-2s and EB-3 India is not going to get a single spill over Visa...

    And it means EB3-I dates might move one month (or less) per year...........and we are royally screwed

    I was also in same situation. My stamping was done on 6th Dec and so far I did not get the passport. Vfs website says "Your passport has not been handed over to VFS. Kindly contact our regional call centres for further queries." I just sent an email to 'ChennaiNIV@state.gov' and 'infouschennai@vfshelpline.com' ..Waiting for their reply..
