    A good reason to wait until visa is in hand before disposing of your house. Hope it doesn't take too long for you!
    It took 9 months for us to sell it.
    We are really glad it is sold so we can buy a new home in FL when the time comes.

    we too have sold our house with an unsteady market would rather have sold before visa than after and find that it takes too long to sell. One of the conditions is not to complete until the end of Jan 07 hopefully heard about visas but if not will sort something temp until we do hear something

    What are the months that constitute summer and spring?
    In the US?

    Spring= March, April and May

    Summer= June, July and August.

    Depending on where you are in the country it might still be snowing or very cold in March... or it might be very hot by May!


    Florida is "warm" all year. At least snowbirds will think it warm. You just have to worry about hurricanes and rainstorms. Snow in Texas is also a rarity.

    Thank you for your reply. So I guess, I have to wait longer for this retrogression relief. According to some of them it will come on summer of 2007. I am hoping that the relief will come sooner.

    A new Congress will be sworn in in January. You should hear real rumblings on the immigration issue by Spring/Summer. Chances are slim anything will be done before then since this Congress is on the way out and considered a "lame duck".

    Retrogression won't last forever. It may seem like a big ordeal now, but those that remain patient and get all their ducks in a row will make it to the US.

    Because there is no real issues anymore to begin with. :spin:

    Retrogression has come and nurses will just have to WAIT until it is resolved and the US Congress is already adjourned for the year and will only re-convene mid-Jan. 2007 :spin:

    They will tackle the issue early next year and fresh allocations is expected sometime in the Summer of 2007. Period.

    It is out of the hands of the nurses. It is not the end of the world as sunnyjohn keeps saying. Nurses can still go through packets 1-3 and by the time retrogression is resolved nurses will already be on packet 3 and just awaiting to be given the packet 4. No loss of time if you think of it and the way I see - the hardest hit are really those who were already given interview dates but fell short because the 50,000 visas were exhausted.

    The good news for them is once retro. is lifted they are the 1st ones to be given visas.

    So, as we keep saying here - just continue w/ everything and it will take care it itself.

    thank you very much lawrence 01, , just like all the others waiting for their interview dates, I guess I have to sit tight and wait for fresh allocations. For your info, I have been waiting since august of this year for my interview appointment but unfortunately, i was affected by the retrogression, if i have to wish this christmas, I would definitely wish that the u.s congress would appropriate more visas early this year!! then, everybody would truly have the most beautiful new year to begin. Again, Merry Christmas and a hopeful new year to everyone!!

    While news out of Washington DC is slow right now (as is always the case at year's end), HLG is hearing that there is already a movement afoot to push Congress to get a small recapture bill passed within the first 10 weeks or so of 2007. Over the course of the spring Congress will debate a wide-ranging CIR-type bill, which healthcare immigration advocates hope will include a complete Schedule A exemption from the Green Card quota.

    A time line might look like this:

    Feb-March 2007: small allotment for Schedule A workers, perhaps 10-25,000 visas. Whether dependents are included is undecided at this point, but our hunch is they will be treated as they are now -- i.e. part of the quota.

    Summer 2007: wide-ranging CIR is passed which includes an exemption for all Schedule A applicants.
