Default Atlanta may speed up PERM

In the below excerpt , from Immigration-law Matthew Oh urges Atlanta to speed up PERM processing . he tells them to Adjucate even cases filed upto July 2007 . What a joke . This will only happen if Atlanta takes a leaf out of USCIS's book and adjucates 60,000 applications in one weekend .

07/24/2007: USCIS Generous Interpretation of Priority Date Based July 2007 EB-485 Filing Eligibility and Our Urge for OFLC's Certification of PERM Applications Before 08/17/2007

The USCIS FAQ indicates that those who filed a PERM application in July 2007 establishing his/her priority date and and will receive cerification of these PERM applications will be eligible to file a concurrent I-140/EB-485 application on or before August 17, 2007. The current DOS and USCIS actions following the July 2007 VB fiasco is giving a life-time opportunity for these filers to file EB-485 applications such that during the forthcoming long backlogs in adjudication of their applications, they could at least work and travel internationally using EAD and Advance Parole, and when they should be laid off, they could still complete the green card process inasmuch as they would find a similar job after 180 days of filing of the EB-485 applications. We thus urge the leaders of the Office of Foreign Labor Certification, particularly Dr. William Carlson, Chief of the National Program of U.S. Department of Labor, to acclerate the July PERM applications such that they are certified at least within the first two weeks of August 2007. We also urge the AILA to work with the OFLC to seek such cooperation from the agency. As affected by the surge of H-2B applications, we understand that Atlanta National Processing Center has been experiencing some delays in the processing of PERM applications and we strongly urge the Atlanta Center leaders to consider the current exigent circumstances and to accelerate the July 2007 cases adjudication within the next two weeks. Those who should desperately seek such help will include:
Those who have already filed and are waiting for the certification at this time.
Those who will file the PERM application on or before July 31, 2007 in the next one week. Those employers who will complete the required recruitment process by July 31, 2007 should make it sure that the PERM applications be filed online "on or before" July 31, 2007 so that once the PERM application is certified in the first two weeks of August, they submit the concurrent I-140 and EB-485 applications "swfitly" not missing the deadline of August 17, 2007. These aliens may also want to prepare for such potential opportunity and start collection of required supporting documentation in preparation for the situation. This will be particularly true for EB-3 filers as they are the ones who will suffer the most from the upcoming severe visa retrogression in coming years.
We thank in advance for Dr. Carlson's special attention to this request on behalf of the U.S. employers and the foreign workers.
