Default Lets do something about the I140 dates moving BACK!!!

Guys..this is total discrimination and laziness on USCIS part..enough is enough, we have sat quietly for past 9 months after filing..has anybody asked them WHY they are so late in processing applications especially when before June/july/aug - they were processing 140 in 1 month or less (Without premium) and now even 9 months later people are waiting and made to wait more ???

WHy retrogessed dates in PROCESSING 140 ???? - NO RHYME OR REASON FOR THIS - THIS CLEARLY VIOLATES THEIR OWN ADMISSION AND ASSURANCES OF PROCESSING BASED ON FIFO...BECAUSE NOW FIFO IS CLEARLY NOT BEING FOLLOWED. HOW COME DATES MOVED BACK FROM AUG15 TO NOW JULY 16 ??? THis is just to make people pay the higher fees for EAD and H1 extensions...these guys want the money that they did not get from us...earlier...I THINK SOME SENSIBLE ORGANIZATION LIKE IV, AILA AND OTHER PEOPLE WHO REALLY WANT TO HELP LEGAL IMMIGRANTS SHUD FILE A LAWSUIT AGAINST THIS TERRIBLE TREATMENT.

I urge every member here to stand up and voice their anger, lets start some campaign and write to Zoe Lofgren , she helped us last time and we cud get something done...we have waited enuff...PLEASE LET US UNITE AND FIGHT FOR OUR RIGHTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HELPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Easy easy!!! U joining politics soon after the GC approval? U remind me of Uma Bharati's fieary speaches..

Atleast this govt and this system is working for you... and all those SS taxes that you pay, trust me, you'll get great money back at the retirement time.. my uncle who owns a convenience store in USA (for last 30 years) retired and is now getting 1200 per month as SS benefits. Whereas, due to the high taxes I have paid as an H1b(IT Consultant), in just last 9 years, my current SS benefits allow me to earn 1700 per month upon retirement. so dont worry, that money is not going anywhere.. unless the whole SS Benefits system defaults ...

Default Texas

TSC might moved back because lots of cases are moved from NSC to TSC for I140.

this is true, mine was filed in April 2007 and was moved from NSC to TSC a couple of days back, and I see this happening for many others too..which explains the dates moving back..

Default I-140

I filed my I-140 in May 2007 (Regular) to NSC still pending. Don't see any updates on mine. I guess we have to wait for another 2-3 months to get approval.

Default Dates in my profile..

Hey..my dates are :

Labor 1 - Filed Nov 2003 - stuck in BEC for 3.5 years
Moved to Diff employer and used Labor Sub (PD March 2002), filed I140 and 485 in July 2007. Recd AP, no FP yet. Filed my 7'th year H1b extension based on Pd 2002 labor. I don't know which date to use, thats why my profile is empty :-)

Guys..I have a fair amount of idea on what we can do. I definitely need people's support. Here is what I think - please feel free to add/modify/update as you feel and we will move along :

1) We create a letter to Zoe Lofgren, CC to AILA, (I don't know if we should include Mr Chertoff/Ombudsman or anybody else, Gurus please comment).
2) We focus on 3 things :
a) Mode of processing the I140 applications
b) People stuck because i140's are not processed and 485 dates are
current - therefore no order in processing.
c) We ask for more transperancy OR Audits to be placed on USCIS processing times by AILA - aided by Ombudsman office because Legal immigrant community is fedup with the random processing algorithms of the USCIS.
3) We all sign this online (Maybe use names and addresses).
4) We print this out and send it. I can come up with the initial draft within next couple of hours. Target is to send it out on Monday.

Please let me know what you guys think. The dates moving back this way has made a mockery out of our patience, goodness and has shown that there really is no future for a Legal immigration in this country.

zephyrr has a spectacular aura about zephyrr has a spectacular aura about
Default dates not indicative anyway

clearly, the dates don't mean much. my receipt date for 140 is jul 2nd, even when they were showing aug 15, i didn't get my 140 approved. many others from the same region in my company got approvals for 140s filed in august and september 2007!

totally meaningless, you are better off flipping a coin then rationalizing date predictions.

Default Another little Idea...

Can we have an attorney draft this ? - I am sure it will provide them with some mileage as well...I mean if they want to..

I am willing to contribute towards the cost for the draft...what about you guys ?

IV - we need you guys here..we are incomplete without your support.

PS : One thing I have noticed on forums is naysayers, I would humbly request - if you have even the slightest doubt, please do not join this action, I guess even 100 signatures with a draft from an attorney will be a good start...

All are welcome...its YOUR movement really...

Guys..I am still working on the draft...but it looks like 1174 people - saw this thread but not 1 comment...even a single word 'YES' or 'I Support' - will do...I am not doing this without you guys...we are all in it or nobody is...
