Read some outrageous things heard / said by keyboard warriors? Post them here!

I was sent a bunch of commentary that is being circulated online by keyboard warriors. It baffles me how people don't want the balls to come out of the hiding from behind their computer, but yet have the time to 'slice & dice' simple statements for hours.

Post some of the most outrageously things you read online for the benefit of the community.

Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to the Keyboard Warriors 'Hall of Fame' - only the best whoppers coming from keyboard warriors go here.

I'll actually go first.

This is coming from a very popular attorney. This is his thread in response to high skilled immigrants asking him for advise on what should be done given the disappointing regulation on job mobility by DHS


"If you folks are serious about wanting to be heard, there is a way to get it done: defeat a congressman. Pick one or two vulnerable incumbents who are being challenged in a primary or will be in close races in November. Do everything possible to defeat those congressmen. If you defeat them, you have earned a seat at the table in the future. Even if you come close, you will scare the hell out of them and get their attention. More importantly, you will get the attention of other members of congress and you won't be taken for granted ever again."

And here is an interpretation from a high skilled immigrant

"I think what R** is referring to is to create a PAC or other external group. Collect money and run advertisements against those who are not in favor of legal immigration. This will ensure that no one will vote agains HR 3012 when such a bill comes to table again"

This is so funny, it hurts.

I posted in a group for high skilled immigrants that we should let the administration know about hiring of a lobbyist and point out this misconduct.

Which is when i heard this Gem from some duffer.

"You are just wasting all the hard work that was put in place last year threw executive action, if Obama had not heeded to the constant pressure from us Immigrants he would have never requested Jeh Johnson to draft a proposal of initiatives to modernize the immigration process..."

From a guy who claims he wrote a few letters to obama for exec action, when asked to write in the comments section of the regulation about the misconduct.

This is actually from the same attorney who had the brilliant idea of 'defeating congressmen'

For the record, I was at the WH meeting on Friday, and which is why when I read such kind of posts I laugh even harder.


"I am amazed that these clowns are still getting people to buy into their BS. What have they ever done? They can claim all kinds of things, but I don't see any proof. I can claim to be responsible for the AC21 legislation and show you as much proof as IV has that they have been responsible for positive changes."

Tipping my hat to you sire'. Please continue to bless us with such wise and innocent questions. :D:D:D

For others go to ImmigrationVoice.org - Immigration Voice Time Line (http://timeline.immigrationvoice.org) and before throwing out some questions ask yourself what you have done apart from clicking online petitions and building a website from a template?

I am tired of being in a constant state of limbo with the current regulation and all the comments. I would like to have 2 of whatever that attorney is smoking, maybe he shared that with the USCIS people. I definitely want that.

Let them have their fun. I thought it is their edict to not mention IV as IV. They themselves are not following (at least when it comes to trash IV)?

With that I present the first issue of Bootlicker Journal (henceforth referred to as BJ) as follows:

Day 1:

Bootlicker1: So Don, what is the best course of action? BTW, thank you for providing this platform for us to discuss how our life sucks and no work is being done. :)

Don: Leave those clowns at IV alone. They still think they still have credibility. What have they done?

Bootlicker2: O yeah, I never had trust in them because I love your forum. People still trust IV. LOL

Bootlicker3: HR213 will not pass

Bootlicker4: Time for Trump!

Bootlicker5: So nothing we can do?

Bootlicker6: I think we should provide comments for sure

Too funny!


If you want to laugh till your stomach hurts you should simply read posts by their "founders"

Read this one - and thank me later

I think we only hear one side of things. I think we got such a raw deal with this reg because IV antagonized all stake holders and/or insisted on their wish list without bothering to find basis to support their position under the current law. They will never acknowledge that their big egos are responsible for this mess.

So all this while she was gung-ho about the rule, and now that it didn't come out she wanted wanted, IV antagonized stake holders AND did not have basis AND Pissed off administration AND got invited by the WH? Wow - we must have some great screenplay writers to come up with this kind of stuff. Fantastic how such glaring statements without providing their own basis.

For the rest, - stop getting mis-guided by the lawyers - giving us EADs is not in their business interest. For anyone that cannot understand that simple concept, I feel sorry for you.

And for anyone that needs basis, check IVs official submission that details out the plan for visa modernization.

How about this one from the dirty bird:


Here is how I read this vague statement:

There are legal limitations of what we could or could not discuss.
WE WERE UNABLE TO MAKE WILD ALLEGATIONS AGAINST AMY NICE IN OUR MEETING FOR FEAR OF LEGAL ACTION AND WORSE

As an outcome of this meeting, we are now working on a detailed plan to do our share to make this regulation closer to the current law.
WE NOW ACKNOWLEDGE THAT OUR PREVIOUS DEMAND FOR EAD/AP AND PORTABILTY FOR ALLI140 APPROVED WITHOUT ANY FURTHER LIMITATIONS IS NOT PERMISSIBLE UNDER THE CURRENT LAW. SO WE AGREED TO COME DOWN FROM OUR HIGH HORSES AND ASK FOR MORE REALISTIC OPTIONS THAT WILL NOT BE SHOT DOWN BY OTHER STAKE HOLDERS.

This is not going to be easy or simple. But if everyone sticks together and helps us execute the plan, there is a way to fix this. So please stay tuned as we work on the next steps. To reiterate, we need everyone to stick to the plan and not get distracted by initiating other campaigns.
DON'T EXPECT TOO MUCH TO COME OUT OF THIS. BUT PLEASE CONTINUE TO HAVE BLIND FAITH IN US. WE WILL CONTINUE TO RAISE YOUR HOPES AND LET YOU DOWN SPECTACULARLY WHILE WE FEED OUR EGOS, ACT SELF IMPORTANT, AND ANOINT OURSELVES AS LEADER OF 1.5 MILLION INSTEAD OF 500 OR 50 WHO DO TRUST OUR LEADERSHIP.

What is their engagement with the people they claim to represent - give us your money, your blind faith, and behave like good soldiers. We will tell you what to do, who to speak to and what to say. We will also tell what is good for you. You do not have any right to question us no matter how badly we screw you over. Many of us already have our gc. But trust us, nobody can fight for you like us.

Fascinating. First, someone teach this high skilled immigrant about 'typing 101' and how typing in all caps shows that 'you don't know to type'

Second-- this just sounds like a frustrated rant ( and hence the all caps) since this person did not have a seat at the table. Too bad. Folks like these love yelling from behind the computer. Stereotypical 'Keyboard Warrior' in my view.

We don't claim. We do represent 1.5M.

For answers to the other stupid questions. Our advocacy events in DC,our state chapters events are open to all. That's where we "engage". That's where "keyboard warriors" admit to convert to being "advocates".

This is getting more and more hilarious. Lot of rants, not a single legit question. And meanwhile the Don is advising on how to "defeat congressmen" to get a seat at the table. :D

Well said about forum to advocacy transition.

But yeah some serious IV haters there huh? Looks like the agenda is to covert the IV-neutrals to IV haters while completely ignoring their own contribution.

In lawyers we trust coz they provide a forum, blogs, tweets, and colorful shit.

I suspect there is a lot of heartburn going on among the self-styled "leaders" (who are actually lawyers most faithful and rewarded followers) on lawyers forums (and other media) because they are curious about the regulation.

For most people there is absolutely nothing wrong with this curiosity. We are one of you and you are our community - we are fighting very hard for our mutual best interests. After seeing the I-140 EAD rule get hijacked by the largest and best funded lobbying group on Capitol Hill - we hope you understand why we cannot communicate what we know and what we are thinking as often and openly as we would like. Please sit tight, don't get distracted by bogus campaigns on twitter, any kind of spamming and please refrain from submitting un-reviewed substantive comments from people you don't know or trust - this is particularly dangerous.

To the other "leaders" on lawyers forums and social media with heart-burn:

You are just upset because you don't have a seat at the table. You are upset because it has become painfully apparent you are nobody's who don't matter. You need to understand that seats at the table are earned after years of hard work building credibility and a reputation.

If you want to do something actually useful, please read this guide (http://bitly.com/iv-advocacy-guide), spread some awareness about our situation and get some HR.213 sponsors. I am not saying this to be obnoxious - I mean it quite sincerely. If you guys want to "lead" your own organization - I suggest attending one of our lobby days and first understanding how things work. We have absolutely no problem teaching you how to be our "competitors" - in-fact we welcome "competitors" because it will just mean more awareness, more participation and ultimately a quicker solution to this problem. However, before you can run, you need to learn how to walk - sadly you can barely crawl.

get some HR.213 sponsors

This should be our major goal. EADs, APs and irrevocability are all important but shouldn't be our primary goal. Our main should always be getting a GC and the only hope we have for it is HR 213

Someone just sent this to me. The hits just keep on comin' :)

"Now that IV has already been invited to the white house and is back cosying up to the administration for mysterious fixes to the rule, we are probably better off focusing attention elsewhere. I would say recapture and also visagate. I think at least trying to establish permissibility of early aos via visagate might be useful.
Also, could comments be used to ask for (and provide legal basis for) early AOS by providing a flexible meaning of "immediately available" in 8 CFR part 245 which is the subject of the draft rule, albeit for a different purpose (adding supplemental form J to the list of hurdles)?"

Ladies and gentlemen, please don't sit down and continue to give big rounds of applauses for such wise ideas by high skilled immigrants.

Better of focusing (read 'Keyboard Warrioring" a.k.a lets keep talking amongst ourselves) on Visagate and Recapture" :D:D:D .

Let me guess, did an attorney suggest this great idea? Please can you ask these attorneys to tell us what they are smoking?

Yes indeed.

BTW, here is the recipe:
Take leftover thanksgiving turkey and let is dry for 4-5 years. Crush it to make it a dry fine powder. Ask backlog immigrants to snort it repeatedly at any given chance even though the occasion does not call for it. Ask your lawyer buddy to also invite more immigrants to this powder.

BTW, please don't come back asking us to hire Ron Gotcher :-). First of all there is a difference between lobbyist and immigration lawyer. We don't have much respect for immigration lawyers, we think they are idiots.

We think that if Gotcher would be a lobbyist then he would be a lousy lobbyist. Look at how he approached us a few years back, probably thinking that we will treat him like a god. We think he is a douche-bag. He often attacks us on his website. Why? Because we want to get rid of backlogs and want immigrants stuck in backlogs to change jobs. Obviously immigration lawyers hate any talk of immigrants being able to change jobs and not be dependent on them.

We have refrained from responding to Gotcher. But if he wants to pick a fight, we are game.

Ron Gotcher, Please dont run and hide in your hole saying "I don't want flame wars" just as you did last time. You want to fight, lets dance.

01-12-2016, 04:41 PM
Seemingly, this guy Ron Gotcher seems to be saying that EAD for I-140 screw-up by immigration lawyers is IVs fault. That is why we despise these slimy and sleazy immigration lawyers.

Look at this guy Ron Gotcher, he attacks us whenever he can, asking for attention. But we keep ignoring him taking a higher road. But you see, sometimes it is necessary to get down and dirty to level of mean people to respond to them.

Gotcher is trying to be a know all "political strategist" telling his followers to defeat a sitting Member of Congress. Let me say that again, this guy is telling his followers to defeat a sitting Member of Congress. Can someone please tell him that kids session is over and he can now go home. We don't want kids making any more idiotic comments to make a fool out of themselves. Lets all do him a favor and save him some self dignity by not listening to him.

Better yet I would love for anyone to show evidence of FWd.Us actively working to resolve issues for people stuck in green card backlogs.

Mamra or Murmura… something of that sort, with the Dirty Bird at its helm. Funny thing is their main agenda was what? EAD for 140. --- on top of their list. Fucking LMAO.

I concur, I have written to FWD.US in the past and also recently since the regulation came out. they talk about everything under the sun but donot talk about backlogs.

Here is the situation. Their primary agenda seems to be to help people who went to school in the US to be able to start companies. Well, i went to school in USA. I did not go to an IVY league but i did go to a publicly funded large university. Any one with an ounce of intelligence knows that the easiest way to get me to start a company ( i have been trying to start one for few years) is to let me have portabl work authorization.


What did FWD.us do ? they want more H1b and a startup visa, as if EB laws are not regulated enough?

With a board which has people from Silicon valley and top employers in USA, we cannot accuse them of being dumb, Its not the intelligence, its the intention. they donot have an intention to help people like us.

Fuck them. We have our own fight, lets fight it out.

In fact, the same IV haters were somehow convinced by their object of hate (IV) that I-140 EAD was coming and started tweeting the fuck out everybody which is what they are good at.

Meanwhile, not mentioning Siskind memo and other evidence. Shhhhhhh.......

Bootlickers have found someone to blame. As always, it is IV and they do not like the Donation bar.

Having said that, why would they waste money lobbying now when the political landscape may change completely in a year?

Washington's lobby firms riding high
Washington's top lobby firms are riding high as they enter an election year where the "establishment" is under attack.

Most of K Street’s 20 largest firms by revenue saw their advocacy fees rise in 2015, with some getting an extra boost from the flurry of legislating at the end of the year.
“Our clients are going to want us to work very diligently before the presidential election takes the oxygen out of the room,” said Darrell Conner, a government affairs counselor at K&L Gates. “You have to be very vigilant in order to advise your clients on the way things are developing in 2016 to prepare them for 2017.”
One of the lobby firms that posted big gains last year was Brownstein Farber Hyatt & Schreck, which took in $7.41 million in lobbying fees during the fourth quarter, an increase of 23 percent over the same period last year.

The fourth-quarter total — part of a $25.75 million haul for the year — was enough to propel Brownstein into second place among K Street’s highest-earning firms

“We worked on a couple of those hot issues for clients” in end-of-the-year legislation, said Marc Lampkin, the managing partner of Brownstein’s Washington office. “We get brought in when things are at a critical stage and there are high stakes.”

Brownstein’s lobby shop, which is attached to a law firm, has been lobbying for high-profile clients such as Anthem, which is seeking to merge with Cigna, and Anheuser-Busch In-Bev, which is proposing to join with SABMiller.

Meanwhile, the law and lobby firm Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld continued its rein over K Street, earning more than $39 million last year, a nearly 11 percent increase over 2014.

Akin Gump benefitted from a slate of prominent new hires, most recently bringing on former Sen. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.).

“The structure of our practice — bipartisan in nature, exhaustive in the issues we handle, and fully integrated within the broader firm — has not only proven to be a successful strategy for successfully resolving our clients’ issues, it has also been remarkably effective at helping us recruit top-tier talent to the team,” said Don Pongrace, who leads the firm's public law and policy practice.

For Akin Gump and several other firms that reaped strong earnings in 2015, much of that growth did not come at the end of the year, despite the rush in Congress to pass a tax extenders measure, a highway funding bill and the first overhaul of federal education law since 2002.

BGR Group, for example, took in $17.58 million for all of 2015, an 11 percent increase over the previous year. However, the mostly GOP firm posted less than 1 percent growth in the fourth quarter over the same period in 2014.

Monument Policy Group, a smaller operation, earned 17 percent more than it did in 2014 but only saw a 9 percent increase in the fourth quarter compared to the year before. In 2015, the firm earned $5.43 million in lobbying fees.

The last year “laid the groundwork for Congress being more functional again,” said Rich Gold, the leader of Holland & Knight's public policy and regulation practice group, crediting congressional leadership in both parties for helping bills move. “We now have the ability to get bigger ticket items done, like corporate tax reform, as we look to 2017.”

Smaller lobby firms fared even better than their bigger counterparts last year, with the all-GOP firm CGCN Group earning 33 percent more in 2015 than it did in 2014 — ending the year with $7.7 million in lobbying fees.

Meanwhile, a firm founded by former Rep. Geoff Davis (R-Ky.) and Hunter Bates — the former top staffer to Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) — netted $710,000 in the fourth quarter of 2015, a 48 percent increase from the same period in 2014. Overall, Republic Consulting brought in $2.55 million for the year.

The 2016 elections have set up a shorter legislative year, with Congress’s summer break starting early for the nominating conventions. Lawmakers will rarely be around the Capitol this fall, with most of their time spent on the campaign trail.

Still, new Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) has laid out an aggressive agenda for the year, raising hopes that the first half of 2016 could be productive.

There is a sense on Capitol Hill that Ryan “wants to go to regular order and drive appropriations bills that will move [other] things at a good pace,” said Moses Mercado, a principal at Ogilvy Government Relations.

Ogilvy has been working to grow its ranks and reported a 17 percent boost in revenues for 2015, taking in $10.08 million.

The campaign season also has the potential to create an even more politicized atmosphere on Capitol Hill as candidates push legislative proposals that could help them back home.

“Some of the policy riders could become sticking points as the bills advance throughout the year,” said Conner, of K&L Gates. “There will clearly be policy riders that are intended to highlight the stark differences between Democrats and Republicans.”
Some top lobby firms posted decreased lobbying revenues for 2015, though several cautioned that the numbers reported under the Lobbying Disclosure Act (LDA) are not comprehensive of their business.

Podesta Group, for example, saw its overall lobbying fees fall about 8 percent in 2015 to $23.17 million, but the firm said its public relations shop is picking up the slack.

Meanwhile, Squire Patton Boggs continued its descent in the lobbying rankings. The former No. 1 firm slipped to third place in the fourth quarter, earning $25 million in all of 2015 — a 21 percent decrease from 2014.

However, Dave Schnittger, a senior policy advisor at Squire Patton Boggs, said that other areas of the global law firm have grown exponentially.

“We have seen double-digit growth, for example, in our government oversight and investigations and compliance practices, which now exceed $40 million annually, and we continue to enjoy significant gains in our regulatory and other highly profitable practices as well,” he said in a statement.

Patton Boggs merged with global law firm Squire Sanders in 2014 and lost a slew of top attorneys and lobbyists. Recently, another chunk of its lobbying team departed for the law firm Arnold & Porter.

It still boasts a deep bench of former Capitol Hill professionals, including former Sens. John Breaux (D-La.) and Trent Lott (R-Miss.) and former Reps. Jack Kingston (R-Ga.) and Jim Matheson (D-Utah).

Hi Guys

I am posting here proof that those bootlickers are being fooled by employers along with lawyers. See below post:

http://www.immigration-information.com/forums/threads/general-discussion-9.19848/page-64#post-132552

"I have seen lot of criticism about outsourcing companies, that they exploit their employees who are on H1, that they violate visa norms etc etc. I have been in outsourcing business for many years and have personally brought resources from India on H1 and L1s and also applied for GCs. Most outsourcing companies (based on my experience of working with few in last 10 yrs) do pay lower wages to the employees they bring from India, but the employees are not grossly underpaid if you include the total cost that companies incur in terms of visa cost, relocation (with families), bench cost etc. Moreover most employees who come to US are able to get market salaries within few years, once they settle down. The good thing about US is that the economy offers options and people on H1 in US are better than skilled PR in Canada many of who end up driving cabs, working in warehouse or selling insurance"

And check out their website founders, this person is the second one Ashish Lab...

So, bottom line is the fool people are following employers and lawyers to axe their own feet.

When for years immigration lawyers have been engaged in "anti-immigrant" activities to create this backlog and to make sure you don't have right to change change employer, then how can this group work against the wishes of their masters. They are a front for dirty job done by lawyers. More importantly, this sira jerks did not even care to mention per-country removal on their website. Why? Because their master Gotcher doesn't like the idea to remove per country limits. You may ask why Gotcher doesn't like the idea. Well, that is a valid question. We think that gotcher is not interested to get rid of backlogs for Indian and Chinese, that's why.

It seems that Siskind is craving for attention, like a little baby. Because we kicked his ass, now he wants to make another group to "COUNTER IV" :). What an idiot this guy is.

Does lawyers already knew that there is no true I140 portability given with the rule or its just a publicity stunt?

As a reminder, originally there were two different NPRMs. RIN: AC05 was to provide that I-140 will not be revoked and provide EAD based on the I-140. The other one AB97 was for the so-called AC21 codifications of "longstanding" agency practices. In the name of combining the two different rules, the mafia has ruthlessly called the new rule AC05, while in reality the proposed rule is AB97. We are supposed to believe that “longstanding” must mean correct interpretation.

Since they are only “codifying their longstanding practices”, there is nothing new. Again, do not consider I-140 irrevocability to have any considerable new advantage because of the fact that when most people change employer (currently), to be safe we make sure that we are working for the I-140 employer when the new employer applies for AC21 104(c) H-1B extension (and then we resign). Since we are asked to re-start the GC process, most people upon changing jobs will make sure they get a new I-140 ASAP (just human nature and experience of being in the backlogs and employer games).

Other point is the White House report said “Further increase job flexibility by enabling individuals whose employment-sponsored immigrant visa petitions have been approved for more than one year to retain eligibility for LPR status despite the petitioning employer closing its business or seeking to withdraw the approved petition”

The current rule DOES NOT "further increase" jack shit.

The lawyers are promoting their own meanings which they have been doing from the beginning.

Siskind,

Mark my words. We will continue to create awareness about what immigration lawyers do until immigration lawyers keep exploiting our people. Your shenanigans will not work. Keep doing what you are doing. You are only making it more painful for yourself.

Why people don't understand that IV are just a group made by people like them who are suffering in backlog from decades. Their anger in their posts and social media reflects the frustration they or any legal immigrant go through in this country due to the broken system. Since the skilled immigration in this country is not really skilled based, it is country based and on the top of it, immigration lawyers try to be so nice to people and they act like God. They never talk about exploitation of workers and rights of american workers. Lawyers like Greg and Ron always say they are pro-immigrant but in reality, they are pro-immigration. They just need more immigration, more H1B, L1B workers, they don't really want them to be free from these immigration hassels since we are their bread and butter. So, personally I think IV is doing right thing in a way to bash these double-faced characters. Has anyone seen any law firm saying any favorable thing in their comments to I-140 rule? People will claim Greg's comment asking the agency to be "Generous" like the president, but guys, really? Will you guys call it "to be generous" if people from India/China gets EAD after 5-6 years (PERM in last 5th year and then I-140 approval and then one year wait time)??? Nobody asked about removing the compelling reasons clause, only Greg, he also just said to be generous or wide definition.... really??? Has anyone seen a blog post, any social media post any open letter from these blood-suckers or AILA which talk about backlogs, exploitation of H1B workers, rights of american workers??? They always defend AILA in their comments. Has anyone seen any post from the lawyers asking for HR213 or dependant removals...

I know the history of AC05, AB97 and other nuances, I'm not considering anything out of this false propaganda.

Here is what Presidents executive actions claim and i mentioned the same in the forum:-
https://www.whitehouse.gov/issues/immigration/st...

Providing portable work authorization for high-skilled workers awaiting LPR status and their spouses.
Ensuring that individuals with lawful status can travel to their countries of origin.

Also the White house report does clearly mentions the same what you've pasted here.

That is what I thought that she is lying or promoting and spreading the false lawyer propaganda.

All these lawyers (who likely read IV forums as IV guests lol) with blogs are on the internet floating around expert opinions that are against immigrant interests, typically on why something cannot be done or why they cannot "conceptualize" certain interpretation. Mainly they are doing a consolation job to shape the opinion in the "right" direction kinda like managing expectations from the beginning without trying to change shit.

Did you miss the part where I say we (REMOVED/LAWYERS ORGANIZATION) had a discussion with Scott Corley. This was late November or early December. When he told us about his proposed bill we said we will support it. At that point we were waiting for the rin:1615-ac05 which was with the OMB. He said we should talk again after the reg was out. He did not expect the reg to be of much help. Anyhow, at that point he didn't suggest that we fund his effort and we presumed Compete America will be funding it. Since then, we haven't been able to get back in touch with him. Obviously, he and IV reconnected and his reluctance to speak with us is obviously connected to IV's agenda of being the sole arbiters of backlogged EB at any and every cost, including stalling any sensible collaboration that would be of help to the community. In any case. It is highly hypocritical and unethical of IV to collaborate with the lobbyist on Compete America's payroll while calling fwd.us and Partner for New America anti-immigrant. If all employer promoted groups are anti immigrant, then certainly Compete America would also fall in that category. So, are they collecting money from the EB community to fund a lobbyist for anti-immigrant employers? Incidentally, they started targeting fwd and New America after we revaled that we have been collaborating with them and they were the ones who helped us get in touch with the WH officials.

Hello IV, a Useless Keyboard warrior on truckitt said the below about Recapture through administrative means:


Thats debatable though I know IV strongly believes that it can only be done by Congress. If that is the case, why did USCIS/DHS publish an RFI in Dec 2014 right after the President's EO where Q. 16 specifically says:

16. What are the most important policy and operational changes, if any, available within the existing statutory framework to ensure that administrative policies, practices, and systems fully and fairly allocate all of the immigrant visa numbers that Congress provided for and intended to be issued, but were not issued in past years?

Note the "but were not issued in past years"! It means allocate the visas wasted from previous years.

Is it possible that the WH was planning to recapture wasted GCs but dropped all plans after DAPA got stuck in courts? Its a theory and can be debated.

Is there any specific code in the INA that says only Congress can do recapture? There is none, cos Congress did not account for USCIS' inefficiency. They did not write laws anticipating that USCIS will waste 1000s of GCs specially since they are fully funded by the applicants' themselves.

Hello IV, a Useless Keyboard warrior on truckitt said the below about Recapture through administrative means:

IV asked for Recapture too. I looked up IV's comments for the same request for information and found the following on pages 22-23 (https://www.regulations.gov/document?D=USCIS-2014-0014-1349):

Question 16.What are the most important policy and operational changes, if any, available within the existing statutory framework to ensure that administrative policies, practices, and systems fully and fairly allocate all of the immigrant visa numbers that Congress provided for and intended to be issued, but were not issued in past years?


Recapture of previously unused visa numbers since 1992

It is estimated that there are over a million people stuck in the Employment Based green card backlogs. Some of these immigrants in the backlogs will have to wait for over a decade. The employment based green card backlogs are not in the best interest of America and Americans because the backlogs are an impediment for immigrant employees to change employer. Any system in which the employees are beholden to the employers for many years (or decades), give the employers significant leverage in the employer-employee relationship, thus making immigrant employees more attractive over US workers in the marketplace.

It is in the best interest of Americans and America to resolve employment based green card backlogs. One possible way to achieve this is by recapturing over 218,000 unused employment based green cards since 1992. These visa numbers remained unused because USCIS and State Department intended to allocate these visa numbers to qualified candidates. However, these visa numbers were not allocated before the year end. Section 8 U.S. Code § 1156 of Immigration Nationality Act defines how the unused visa numbers ought to be treated. The existing law provides method to issue unused immigrant visa to a qualified candidate without any limitation on the timeframe in which the visa can be issued. Because there is no time limitation defined for when the unused visa number can be issued to a qualified alien, the law allows recapturing the unused green cards and applying them to resolve the existing backlogs. Every year since 1992 the immigrant visa number remained unused, there were qualified aliens waiting for timely allocation of visa numbers.

Therefore, we respectfully submit that in the spirit of the existing law recapture the unused green cards since 1992, and, apply these green cards to address the backlog of over a million high skilled immigrants


I can only imagine that IV was told that Obama Administration did not consider it legal and told them they weren't going to do it.

People talking about this over and over again are just "useless keyboard warriors" who want to waste everyone's time. People should be focusing on doing HR.213 meetings - not pushing petitions. This "Useless Keyboard Warrior" is well known for being obsessed with, fixated on and [PROFANITY] at Recapture - which as IV has made clear will not happen under this Administration.
