Topic: Immigration Reform is coming soon

No use. Senate debate on immigration is almost dead. Dems not willing to negotiate on chain migration as it cost them millions of vote which is the lifeline for them. Chuc not intresed in daca deal. He just want legal protection for daca which is assured. GOP also happy to go with this issue open in Nov election . So everyone can go and sleep now :)

Since they are working for offshore companies they went back and working from India. Some working from home(india) but on US time. More jobs might move to Offshore and its good to India job market but here its nightmare.

Topic: Lot of H1B extension being denied in recent months

Hi,
At-least 4 of my friends from big consulting company have been denied H1 extension. What is happening and any pattern for the denial? Those are planning to do H1B extension in coming months, be prepared for the worst.
Those who applied with i140 after 6 years max out also impacted.

I140, perm out dated GC process is going to be paced out for sure. Maximum it can go till June after that its only merit based system. what happens to those have i40 is the question now. Most probably all backlog workers can file i485 in june but no green card sooner, gc from DV will be diverted but it still take 5 to 6 years to clear the backlong which is not good for the current backloged workers who are in age bracket nearing 40 and more. Others will have chance to file GC using new merit based gc process. Good luck

During last shut down Dems accepted to fund $25B for wall but the thorny issue is chain immigration. Dems will be losing huge chuck of vote if they accept to curtail chain migration.

Not sure why you all are talking about govt shutdown. Per latest reports, law makers almost certain to pass soending for 2 two years for defence and domestic spending. Only throny issue is budget cap but that also they are almost reached deal(we will be knowing it by tomorrow). DACA is in court and its safe tilll june so not sure if at all there will be any immigration reform before next nov election. Going to election with immigration issue is advantage to Republicans. Here Dems has nothing to bargain, just accept trump and sail through it and blame trump in future. Since americans are highly polarized and they hate immigrants of any sort.

Topic: EB ROW injustice

Those 2 countries has more than 1/3 of the world population. Is it fair to give just 14% of GC to them? and 84% of GC to population which is less than half of the population. Is this fair?

Based on the new i140 rule, you can use it for H1B cap exempt even your employer withdraw your i140 (though minimum 6 months it should be valid).

May be Shalabh Kumar will talk to Trump on behalf of Employers to continue backlog. If Trump clears backlog he may get one million plus vote for Republicans from skilled immigrants , billions of $$$$, positive impact on economy, thousands of startups, thousands of high tech new jobs.

Topic: Feedback on IV call

Below is IV call summary on 01/11/2018:
1.Advocacy event in DC - 02/04/2018 - 02/06/2018
2. Is DACA bill possible before 01/19/2018 - No, its not possible
3. Should we need to change the language in HR392 to remove family immigration in the bill(attached chain immigration in HR392) - No not possible, it will harm the bill if we remove
4. Options to pass HR392 - attach a fee to it. Still not sure what could be the fee. Employers are against HR392, they dont want to clear the backlog. Reach out to your employer to get the support for the bill.
5. HR392 is IV child since 2011. If its passed then credit should go to IV but if its failed then its SIIA and other organization who played spoiler as each organization have their own agenda. If all of us demand HR392 in one voice then HR392 is possible.
6.If HR392 is not part of any DACA bill, then HR392 is dead.

Topic: SIIA National Call on 12/20/2017

Summary:

1. Advocacy Event in Washington on Feb 8, 2018: Plan to bring 5000 people including skilled workers and family. Many other organizations also joining the event.
2. This is the last chance, if we miss to address backlog issue now then no immigration change for next 10 years.
3. Does HR392 has any chance? Even Raise act remove country limit but it didnt address the backlog issue who already inside the country. Age play spoilsport for most the backlogged skilled workers. SIIA and congressmen believe that HR392 has less chance to pass in the current scenario. SIIA will work to solve the backlogged issues.
4. One of the Caller behaved unprofessional way in the call most probably from rough immigration group and he called himself as Ashwin (He is reluctant to say his name)
5. SIIA never collects money from remembers.

Even after 10 years, IV dont have maturity to understand which bill will/can pass the congress. No use of chest thumping that HR392 is the brain child of IV for past 10 years. No more excuses after 300+ cosponsors. IV please change the agenda to stay in the race.

Topic: H.R. 392, Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act

Looks like HR392 dead for below reasons
1. Though its called High skilled immigrants bill, it has one important clause which alters family based GC which encourage chain immigration. Trump particularly against any sort of chain immigration.
2. Though this bill clears backlog for workers who struck for 10 years but new applicants will go into backlog loop. So this bill actually not fixing the backlog issue and seen as temporary or deferred solution, which will decimate already broken high skilled immigration system to maximum level.
3. RAISE act dont have the country cap. Also, Trump is keen to sign RAISE act. So as long as Raise act is in Govt Radar, Trump wont sign HR392 (basically it doesn't make any sense to sign HR392 and then sign Riase act).


Is above analysis make sense? comments welcome!

People from India followed the rule of the land. Its not mean that other country people who got green card are saints. Everyone misused the broken system and you people are lucky that you hail from less populated country and manged to frame the rule to favor less populated country which itself a fraud.

Topic: GA Drivers license renewal requires unexpired visa on passport

--If someone wants to take DDS to court, for sure GA law is in your side.

Requirement for Non-immigrants to renew driver license:

1. Proof of identity (Unexpired Passport and valid Visa) - This 'valid visa' is re-interrupted as 'Unexpired visa ' which is the mistake on the part of DMV. Valid Visa is actually is to prove that non-immigrant entered US legally .
2. Immigration document - i94 (this is the immigration document that proves an Non-immigrants is staying in US legally) or i797A Notice of action for temporary license for 120 days. If only Unexpired visa accepted then why we need 'i797A'? so its clear valid visa is not Unexpired visa.

Because of this small change many DMV's denying driving license for legal immigrants and violates Georgia law found in O.C.G.A. § 40-5-21.1

How is DDS acting against Georgia law?
The relevant Georgia law is found in O.C.G.A. § 40-5-21.1, “Temporary licenses, permits, or special identification cards; foreign licenses or identification cards as evidence of legal presence in the United States,” and specifically states that the following non-citizens may obtain a Georgia driver’s license:
(a) Notwithstanding any other provision of this title, an applicant who presents in person valid documentary evidence of:

(1) Admission to the United States in a valid, unexpired nonimmigrant status;
(2) A pending or approved application for asylum in the United States;
(3) Admission into the United States in refugee status;
(4) An approved application for temporary protected status in the United States;
(5) Approved deferred action status;
(6) Other federal documentation verified by the United States Department of Homeland Security to be valid documentary evidence of lawful presence in the United States under federal immigration law; or
(7) Verification of lawful presence as provided by Code Section 40-5-21.2 may be issued a temporary license, permit, or special identification card.

Such temporary license, permit, or special identification card shall be valid only during the period of time of the applicant's authorized stay in the United States or five years, whichever occurs first. (emphasis added)

The statute clearly says that a non-citizen may have a license during his or her period of authorized stay. “Authorized stay” under the immigration laws is a term used when a non-citizen has not yet achieved a permanent immigration status in the United States, but the immigration authorities are aware of the non-citizen’s presence in the United States and consent to or authorize their presence.
Employment authorization documents, at a minimum, represent that the non-citizen has a period of authorized stay in the United States. Every employment authorization document, regardless of the category, denotes an authorized stay in the United States by immigration authorities. DDS declines to understand this and believes that a non-citizen’s presence can still be unauthorized when he or she has a work permit. This is not true.

If its true that there is "Certain Period of Time " then there might be multiple options like if you have completed X number of years from the same employer then "Certain Period of Time " is n months or n+x months.
