Well, even Parkistan has 01MAR01 as the cutoff date for EB3. The guy's PD is 04/19/2001, which is later than 01MAR01.

Which if true looks optimistic, however another guy with PD 02/01 from pak is

approved as posted in the forum elsewhere. just wondering if it is the same guy..but PD is different unless he deliberately mentioned feb 01 in lieu of april 01

S. 1033 or S. 1438?

Hi, all,

I checked the first hearing on S. 1033 and S. 1438 on 7/26. Core sponsors of both bills testimonied before the hearing.

By looking at both bills, I would think S. 1033 seems very promising.

It has the following good things:

• increasing the number of employment-based numbers from 140,000 to 290,000 per year, reallocating the distribution of those numbers, and providing for the recapture of unused numbers;

• increasing the per-country limits for both family- and employment-based immigrants;

The per-country limit is increased from 7% to 10%.



Quick Q..How did you get the status on the Name check clearence?

What's happening at USCIS?

Is there any EB3 approval since 1 Oct? With the priority dates backlogged so much I would think there would be some approvals to justify the retrogression. But I don't see any approvals. I wish this process was more transparent and we are not left out in the dark to make our own interpretations of the USCIS actions.
