As you may already be aware that Senator Grassley made an announcement for lifting his hold on H.R.3012 after reaching an agreement with senior Senator from New York, the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration, Refugees and Border Security.

We expect that soon some elements, who are against the Grassley amendment, will engage in fear mongering and will employ scare tactics to infuse fear in immigrant community. As recent as last week, some mischievous elements were engaged in false information and misinterpretation of the Grassley Amendment.

To dispel any misinformation and for the better understanding of the community, here is a brief FAQ about the Grassley Amendment.

Thanks IV for making it clear !!!

I DONT see anything wrong with these amendments like or immigration attorney gods are screaming

This means that the decision regarding intent to conduct an investigation cannot be subject to judicial review i.e. the audit will be conducted as determined and the decision to conduct the same cannot be challenged in court. However, other parts of the investigation/audit,
including any adverse results/decision of the investigation, can be subject to judicial
review as with current audits.

Only the decision to audit cannot be challenged in the court, still the outcome of the investigation can be challenged. I dont see anything wrong with this,

Can you provide the section in the bill that says the outcome of investigation can be challenged in court?

The FAQ says

The original per country limit removal language as passed by the House is intact and is effective from FY 2012.
Effective from FY 2012, what does that mean?

Fiscal year in the US is defined as :
It runs from October 1 of the prior year through September 30 of the year being described. For example:
•FY 2012 is from October 1 2011 through September 30 2012.

Effective from FY 2012 would mean effective from October 1, 2011

But I suppose that all the 140k visas for FY 2012 are being used up entirely, isn't it ? And we didn't see EB2 getting the spillover either this year !

Effective date is Oct 1, 2011 period. How to implement it is the responsibility of the USCIS.
