The December 2008 visa bulletin is released by USCIS today and to no surprise the dates are unchanged compared to November 2008. EB2 dates are 1 June 2003 where as EB3 its 1 October 2001. These dates are important for persons who are in green card process so that they can go to next stage of green card process.
The only surprise is that this months bulletin is released little early of the month. This kinds of gives idea that probably USCIS is having good prediction of numbers and we may not see any significant changes going into next year.
Now that elections are over we should see some long pending bills may get some breathing air
