    I also have some doubts of the accuracy of that report from USCIS. Last day of filing of I-485 was Aug 17, 2007. They have not been accepting I-485 since then, so how could CA SC state an Oct 2007 date for I-485 for employment-based. This is more likely an error, w/c commonly happens by the way. They always adjust dates there a couple of days after they cite an error.

    USCIS can only go as far as Aug. 17, 2007 since that was the last day of filing the I-485.

    CA SC also do not commonly adjudicate I-485s, usually it is TSC and NSC and in the relatively recent times VT as well. This is the first time I've seen CA SC having an I-485 for a long time, add in the Oct 2007 date w/c is impossible since last day of filig of I-485 was Aug 17, 2007 points that this is most likely an error.
    In addition to this, another possibility is that since it does not differentiate between the diff. EB categories that they are just reflecting I-485s of those who are in EB1 and EB2 (of most countries) w/c are always current.

    To amend the Immigration and Nationality Act to eliminate the per country level for employment-based immigrants and to end the spill-over of unused immigrant visa numbers between employment-based and family-sponsored categories.

    looks like all the lobbying efforts are paying off....let's continue praying guys
    I personally do not like this one. This is good down the road when all the backlogs has been eliminated so that everyone will be on equal footing.

    If they do this now when there is considerable backlog in both EB and FB categories, 1-2 countries will be hogging all the visas since there are more demand coming from them. To be exact, applicants from India and China will be hogging almost all the EB categories while Philippines and Mexico may hog all the visas from the FB categories.

    He needs to check with his lawyer that all the paperwrk has been submitted. Usually with a PD of 2005 there has to have been some issue with paperwork. The visa bulletin gives a good indication on what dates are being processed
