Looks like you are in the US, and what the hospitals are telling you is correct. The only thing that can be submitted currently is the I-140 and that will not get you a document that will permit you to work, or the Adjustment of Status.
And sorry but the facility is giving you wrong information. This has been well known information for some time, that the cut-off date for filing a petition was October 31, 2006. Most of us thought that it would be earlier but USCIS permitted them to be filed until the very end.
And this is something that your attorney that you hired should have told you about. It is not anything new and there have been retrogressions in the past. The last post that I remember seeign from you was from the beginning of November and you had only ten days on your tourist visa left. Have you done anything about that? Right now, you have no options open to you........especailly if your visa is overstayed.
You have also been around this forum for some time, and there has been much talk of a pending retorgression for months, this is not something that happened overnight, far from it, it has been expected since early summer, just not sure when it was going to go into effect. The 50,000 visas were only going to last for so long.
Do not expect to see any new options for most until next summer, when it is expected that visas will open up. Some may open sooner but it is 100% dependent on where you were born.
