To only US Indians ( Guys back home you can ignore all this crap and njoy the India’s cricket match win against South Africa)
haa some what good news for immigrants..What does this mean, If we have our labor cleared by the time this BILL is finalized in weeks or months we can have our work authorization after applyng for 140 and 485 , that’s a big life saver…read the details ..
Unused employment-based visa numbers would be added to the available numbers for immediate use. There would be a limit of this “add in” of 90,000 per year, and it appears that there are only about 90,000 to 100,000 of these unused immigrant visa numbers available. Thus, this would be a short-term improvement.
Exempt derivative spouses and children from the annual immigrant visa cap count. This would be an enormous improvement and a significantly longer-term solution to the retrogression problem. Only the actual beneficiary would be counted against the numerical immigrant visa limits.
Allow for the I-485 filing even if an immigrant visa number is not available. This would also not really solve the problem, as people would just have to wait longer at the I-485 stage. It would help address certain situations, however, especially involving dependant spouses and children. It would also facilitate the ability to obtain employment authorization and use of AC21 portability.
