USCIS will argue that by pushing all adjudications into the last quarter they are not utilizing visa numbers properly. Also, the per country limits are relaxed in the last quarter to maximize visa number usage. They will say that, they have X number of applications on which all work has been done and just needed availability of visa number. Ideally to be on the safe side, they should have done this on Jul 2nd and revised VB on the same day. I believe that they know that they will be sued when this happens. They might already have covered how they can put forth an argument aimed to maximize visa numbers to the benefit of to be immigrants and did not do anything intentionally.

we will benefit from the lawsuit if we either win or if the lawsuit becomes more publicized so that a recapture can happen if at all.

Guys forget about recaptures or any friendly gestures from the congress. This is a hugely anti immigrant congress.

Post Immigration Voice Encourages Lawsuit !!!!!!

Please read the home page of this website:


Immigration Voice's Action Plan :

Immigration Voice encourages all members to help AILF/AILA's potential lawsuit by joining them as plaintiffs. Immigration Voice will actively help AILF or other organizations in this lawsuit to force USCIS/DOS to compensate for :

1. Financial and other damages caused due to manipulation of Visa bulletins out of order.
2. Violation of federal regulations and precedents.

A victory in such a potential lawsuit could in effect may either force USCIS to accept the 485 petitions in July and accept the ones it may deny/return in July.

The outcome of lawsuit cannot be guaranteed but USCIS and DOS are certainly facing a tough fight from us as well as from AILA and like minded organizations.

Please contribute funds as Immigration Voice would need funds to finance an expensive lawsuit against USCIS/DOS should it decide to actively participate in a class action lawsuit.

People who are already waiting here for years, who flew back from India those who were on vacation know the pain. keep you analysis and opinions with you
If you cannot take the truth, I don't care.. My explanation is for mature people who have applied their labor around and after Apr 2001 who have gone through all the cursings against USCIS for delays but still are waiting for GC approvals.. I have been one of them. There has been lawsuits delays in approving labor and other slowness in USCIS, but nothing came out. You will know when you go through these lawsuits. I joined the lawsuit by Rajeev.S.Khanna regarding this. The end result was #$$#.. This time many lawyers themselves are not sure whether the lawsuit will result in any thing different...

Read this
http://pubweb.fdbl.com/news1.nsf/9ab...a?OpenDocument

By the time you do your lawsuits and stuff, your GC will be approved. MARK THESE WORDS ANYWHERE.. "BY THE TIME YOUR LAWSUIT GETS OVER WITH NO RESULT, YOUR GC WILL BE APPROVED". Just like all the labor backlog will get cleared by end of oct 2007.

Don't waste your valueable time on lawsuits and instead focus on legal skill bill or any other bills that can make difference. and thats what immigrationvoice.org came into existance for.

I am not saying just send flowers and do nothing...

1) Send flowers to attract media attention.
2) contribute money and fight the broken immigration system through lobbying as well as lawsuits.

Do it all the ways possible.

Even though it is anti-immigrant, we can continue with our humble efforts for the purpose of attaining some media attention and at least present our facts to a wider array of audiences who believe all immigration is synonymous to illegal immigration.

Get over with the fiasco and try other options..

Lawsuit is not one of themm


This is is not my assumption.. This is a statement by Rajeev S Khanna of immigration.com... And many other lawyers.. Check it out.. You will believe when you read the whole article..
Let me reiterate, it's not about winning, it's about standing up for the injustice. there are instances, in the past when VIsa numbers made unavailable, but they were made unavailable during regualr VB with substantial (more than two weeks) notice. We are not asking them for more Visa numbers, we are asking them to accept the applications.

Default Still, I think they are at fault

First of all they are the ones who missed out on their calculations (if there was one). Secondly, we are not asking them to allocate visa numbers right away. We are only asking them to accept our applications for AOS, EAD, AP etc. Which under the light of current circumstances (created by them) they should still do.

so we are going to sue them for

or

2) Not accepting the 485 filing ??

Chances are slim and the fact remains same

- They can not allocate more than 140K visa
- There is no law which stops them publishing revised bullietin
- USCIS is adhering to law by using revised bulletin.

Default Media story on July 4th

Does anyone have media contacts who would do a story for us tomorrow - 4th of July - clubbing it with the independence day and providing references and analogies as to how "independence" holds little meaning for us legal immigrants. It could gather some attention... just a thought.

I don't think USCIS gave any false information. Just like H1's this year, which got filled up in 2 days, and they stopped accepting the application from 3rd day, similarly for GC's, based on non-availibility of visa numbers for 2007, they cannot accept any more I-485's. As soon as they knew that 2007 quota for GC's are over they issued the press release..

No #$#$% lawsuit can do anything.. Get over it..

Lawsuit is a SHAM...
