    You are partially right.

    One thing I know for sure - you know how to copy paste and repeat the same post again and again :)


    Please be considerate towards members spending time to fix issues that affect you and your family. At the time when english_august posted, these was some problem in the application. I know this because the message I posted just before english_august was also repeated 2-3 times. Kindly give others benefit of the doubt before cherry picking their faults.

    You are already enjoying the benefit of filing 485/EAD/AP in July-07. Atleast be considerate towards people who contributed their time, energy and resources to - in lot of ways influence the outcome of July visa bulletin.

    And if you or H1bslave et al don't see any value in IV, then why do you visit this website and why do expect updates?

    I'm starting a new thread where I'll post research and stats that lend more credibility and/or support skilled, legal immigration. This should also be added to our presentation material for lawmakers!



    Starting off, here is a recent study by the influential Kauffman Foundation which clearly backs the rationale for expanding skilled, legal immigration...
    New Kauffman Foundation Study Identifies Key Factors Driving Offshoring of Corporate R&D

    Wendy Guillies, Kauffman Foundation, 816-932-1046,
    Tom Phillips, Communication Partners, 212-935-4655,

    KANSAS CITY, MO, February 16, 2006 - Contrary to popular belief, it is intellectual capital and university collaboration, not just lower costs, that primarily attract companies to locate R&D activities in locations away from their home country, according to a new study sponsored by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation. The study of more than 200 multinational companies across 15 industries, mostly headquartered in the United States and Western Europe, finds that emerging countries such as China and India will continue to be major beneficiaries of R&D expansion over the next three years as companies seek new market opportunities, access to top scientists and engineers, and collaborative research relationships with leading universities.

    The study was released at a meeting of the Government-University-Industry Research Roundtable (GUIRR) of the National Academies. It was conducted by Marie Thursby, Ph.D., Professor of Strategic Management, Georgia Tech College of Management, and Jerry Thursby, Chair of the Department of Economics, Emory University, with sponsorship by the Kauffman Foundation.

    Designed to identify and rank the importance of different factors feeding into the corporate decision-making process as to where to locate R&D facilities, the study also tracked R&D work coming into the United States from abroad, as well as R&D work going in the reverse direction; addressed favored countries for locating R&D work and why; and outlined trends industry expects for R&D expansion in the future.

    Among the top factors going into new R&D siting decisions in both developed and emerging countries are market growth potential, quality of R&D talent, collaboration with universities and IP protection. How these factors influence the decision, however, depend on whether the site is in a developed or emerging country. In neither emerging nor developed countries was cost consideration the most important factor, which runs contrary to what has been reported by the media (according to an analysis of media coverage over the past few years in The Wall Street Journal and New York Times on multinational R&D locations).

    Among the study's more surprising findings, according to the researchers, was the role university collaboration plays in the decision-making process for locating R&D facilities. In fact, collaboration with universities was particularly prevalent as a factor for expanding to emerging countries, even though these countries provide lesser degrees of IP protection.

    "The study underscores the critical role universities play in a country's national innovation system, not just in the training of new scientists and access to the best talent, but in the ease of developing and licensing technology," said Carl Schramm, president and CEO of the Kauffman Foundation.

    More than half of the corporate respondents who identify the United States as their home country report that they have either recently expanded or planned to locate R&D facilities in China and India vs. other developed countries. Of 63 Western European companies responding, 13 plan on expanding or locating new R&D facilities to the United States. The issue of collaborative research between universities and corporations has been a growing concern within the United States, with some observers saying legal wrangling over intellectual property rights is not only slowing the pace of innovation but also prompting companies to seek university research partners in other countries.

    The study indicates, however, that while the trend toward R&D offshoring to Asia will continue despite concerns over IP protection, companies are keeping their most cutting-edge research in developed countries where IP protection is the strongest. According to the study, only 22 percent of the R&D effort in emerging countries is for new science.

    "The United States would seem to have a comparative advantage in maintaining its innovative leadership through the high caliber of its scientists and its strong protection of IP," said Lesa Mitchell, vice president of Advancing Innovation at the Kauffman Foundation. "Industry and universities must be alert to removing obstacles to joint research, or emerging countries will overtake us in innovation breakthroughs, and the burst of discovery that has been driving our economy for the past half-century will be over."

    Another public policy implication of the findings, say the researches, is that the United States must focus on highly skilled worker immigration.

    "We are educating the best and the brightest, but make it impossible for them to stay in America and immigrate. We need major immigration reform that welcomes, instead of pushes out, highly skilled workers," said Dr. Marie Thursby.

    The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation of Kansas City is a private, nonpartisan foundation that works with partners to advance entrepreneurship in America and improve the education of children and youth. The Kauffman Foundation was established in the mid-1960s by the late entrepreneur and philanthropist Ewing Marion

    Thanks everyone for the feedback. Can some guru put this issue to rest? I guess the only question that remains is:

    "For a person who has extended his H1 beyond the 6 year category on the basis of AOS, would this H1 extension be valid if I-485 is denied (either wrongly due to AC21 or otherwise)"

    Way to go JimyTomy.

    For all well qualified EB-3 folks it is a good and legal way of getting out of this EB-3 India mess.

    Many in IV will know that I have never opposed legal porting. However, I disagree that this is a way to get out of the mess. There is a fixed total number of Visa available. Per current rule this first comes to EB2 and is consumed completely leaving nothing for EB 3. If all (or majority) EB 3 moves to EB 2, the chocking will be in EB2 . So the "mess" just shifts its position.

    The true way is -- 1) Recapture, 2) Exclude dependents from Visa Number

    See what I mean. More than stat-arb, the HFT programs keep looking for pattrens in order flow and front run them. Thats why you have lattice trading and when a fund wants to sell a big block, they dont even go to the exchanges. they pick up the phone and call someone "upstairs"

    Employment based VISA numbers should not have country quotas, it is purely based on individual talents and skills when one gets selected for the Job and Green card sponsorship.

    Lets say they have quota system to avoid the concentration of 1 country, then they should have some flexibility to adjust the country quotas based on the backlog too, certain % of EB numbers goes to clear the backlogs each year, that way everyone will remain at about the same level of retrogression, EB-2 RoW current and EB-2 India @ 2006 level and on the same line EB-3 RoW @ 2005 and EB-3 India @ 2002 level is ridiculous and just plain insane. This is like a punishment to People who are born in certain countries and no matter how talent and skills the individual have, the law is punishing him/her or rather discriminating him/her based on country of BIRTH.

    I am certainly not the type to participate in rallies. But I like your thinking and your stand on your points, which I think are not as well expressed as you possibly could.

    The only way US Govt is going to worry about solving our problem is if they find it a problem for themselves. And they will find it a problem only when people like you and me start leaving USA in hoards!!

    For NOW, the only reason I have applied GC is for EAD for my wife. She is on H1 but doesn't like to work in IT field anymore. Without EAD it's difficult for her to pursue other full-time/part-time careers like fashion designer/teacher etc.,

    I have come across at least one-colleague in every client place who left U.S.A - after being here for more than 7 years. And they do have children, houses and handsome salaries. And I know of number of people who have plans to eventually go back. But it's just matter of time and money. If property prices were not crazy in India, I am sure more people would have left by now.

    As far as competition with young and talented Indians - I think we are good enough to come this far and should be good enough to compete when we go back :D

    The day will come when I will proudly say bye-bye to America and go back to Hyderabad or Bangalore and be happy with better family-life and okay-material life. And guess what, I get to work around the world not just U.S.A.

    All those who are questioning my profile details please check the public profile of mine. It has more info than most of you (Mr.internet) have in your own. To those who are calling to close this thread - Already someone modified the poll and added two new options, I won't be surprised if it is closed. If it is it will only show how fake some of you are when you talk about a few reasons ( not all) why GC backlogged should be solved fast.
    Someone wanted the moderators to ban me. Tell me why I should be banned? Do you say you just want everyone to only listen to what you say and what you want them to do? You can't tolerate others' opinions and thoughts?
    I am here in this country on H1B since 2000. I am also one of you waiting in this endless queue for my GC. I am also like one of you trying to get my GC fast. But I don't like to lie or twist facts for my convenience.

    Thought for the day "Walk a mile in the shoes of an American before you ask them to beleive what you say"

    Oh really? do you think so? RBI controls the exchange rate. You know who control RBI? Banks like ICICI and big corporate companies like RIL etc and other biggies and also big IT comps.

    You seem to believe in all the conspiracy theories out there. India is no more a third world country. There are many deep pockets and if there was any such arbitrague existing people will mint money all day long. Rupee is not fully floating currency that doesn't mean you can control what the exchange rate is going to be. No company or congolmerate can manipulate market like that.

    Why should speeding tickets matter?

    (To make sure we are on the same page, I am talking about maintaining PR status after you have GC, and not while your I-485 petition is pending.) Speeding tickets do not matter in maintaining PR status, neither do they matter in your eventual citizenship status, but you must include them in the citizenship application form N-400 (, Part 10, Question 16: "Have you even been arrested, cited, or detained by any law enforcement officer for any reason?" Speeding tickets mean both citation and temporary detention (this is why parking violations are excluded). However, for such minor infractions you do not need to attach documents wth your application (see the bottom sentence in page 25 here ( But it is still a good idea to keep all documentation, no matter how trivial.

    2. Retain all original copies of USCIS documents related to your legal status during the entire period of stay in USA, and shred all photocopies (except when you have a photocopy but not its original).

    Thanks for this info, but I am a million miles away from ever thinking about these.

    Just out of curiosity, why "shred" photocopies, except maybe for better document management and not drowning in paper? :D

    Is there some ramification towards citizenship?

    btw, Congrats on GC. :cool:

    I am an early 2004 EB2 filer. I am hoping that mine would get approved at least before Oct. My EAD, AP, H1 and DL is getting expired in Oct. Glad to know that citizenship is making a difference in your life. I am happy for you. Good Luck

    Thanks so much NKR.

    I think, your GC approval should happen anyday. Wish you the very best!

    Let us all have a rally to move back to our countries on 4July2008 to symbolically show that we want our Freedom and Independence and never return back...

    Hey Mr. G I Joe,
    Dont know who you are? or what your motive may be?
    But you are asking the wrong question to the wrong group. :D

    People who are backlogged in the gc queue.. facing career hardships.. or frustrated... :( ..are still hanging on to their hope of getting a gc.. someday! To be part of the American Dream. -- They are the ones visiting this website, to check if there is any news.. any ray of hope for their doldrum existence.

    Do you think they will say yes to you?
    The guys who decide to move back unfortunately don't come to this website.

    During the last recession & once in a while I see lot of smart guys (lot smarter and lot more educated than myself) move back to their home country. Not because they don't have a job but due to better prospects back home (booming economy et al). They came here since America showed promise.. they left because the way they were treated was not what they expected. Bottomline America failed to holdback those brainy folks. They may have said yes to you. They probably wouldn't have bothered. So coming back to our conclusion. Wrong question.. wrong addressee..:p


    Joy :D

    P.S. Can someone unbump this thread. Wasting everyones time!!!

    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$GOOD MORNING GC$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    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")

    Dear IV Members,

    If you believe that your success depends on your immigration process - whether it's the ability to file I-485 earlier or to get green-card and citizenship sooner or whether it's the ability of your spouse to work - then you have to believe that your success somehow depends on the success of Immigration voice and these 170 volunteers in DC next week.
    As you may know, we are just one more week away from hosting Advocacy day in Washington DC where about 170 members of Immigration Voice will conduct nearly 250 meetings with offices of Senators and Congressmen. Such events cost money. If we have enough contributions, we can spend as per our budget of nearly $ 50,000. If not, we will have to cut back on the event spending and reduce the magnitude and size of the event.
    If you are not coming to DC next week, please do your part and contribute funds to Immigration Voice. It not only finances the event properly, it instills pride and confidence in the members who will be there in DC that there are thousands of willing supporters behind them who could not be there physically but are 100% with them in their determination and resolve.

    For background click here -> Announcement about April 2011 Advocacy Days (
    Contribute to Advocacy Event on the Capitol Hill ( (All one-time contributions will go towards organizing the Advocacy Days event)

    seekerofpeace - I hope they have not lost my file. I have not been able to get a concrete answer so far as to what is happening with my file.

    My attorney had filed 140s for in EB2/EB3 and I hope they have not taken my app and classified it as EB3. We sent the EB2 I-140 with the AOS app so I dont think that would happen but stranger things have happened with USCIS.

    Response that I got from the local senator and from what I read in the other thread you created, I think visa numbers are over for 2009 fiscal year. We will now have to wait until October. I dont mind waiting until October, but I want to use the next 15 days doing whatever I can, so atleast in October, I have some chance of getting approved.

    Good luck to you, hope everyone who is waiting gets the good news soon.
