    And this is not the place to split hairs over this. I have been quite aware of what has been happening all over the world with visas thru this retrogression and even the ones before. And have followed what has happened. And I still stick by what I have posted.

    Same thing the beginning of July when the interviews started to be given out. There were a few that posted that they were going to delay their interviews, they did, and they got cancelled. The visas that are being used now are only being given out to cases that were completed in total before the retrogression set in last October, and that means approval on the I-140 as well as the DS-230 and the files had been sent to the US Embassy for the interviews in most cases. And then the PD also played a part after that. They are only trying to clear up pending petitions that have been there for sometime, not focusing on new petitions that are being submitted at this time.

    They have actually pulled staff to work on getting passports completed for Americans that have been waiting months for them, due to the backlog that they have. That is actually where the priority is right now, they have even pulled 200 government interns to New Hampshire and New Orleans to help with that over anything else at this time.

    And again, this is now August; and there are no more visas available in this Bulletin in any classification. There is no guarantee that appts made for this month or September will actually hold. That is all that I am saying on the subject. It is out of our hands at this time. What ever will happen will happen, it does not need any debate. There is not a thing that anyone can do about it, so no reason to waste time on it.

    This thread was also talking about interviews at New Delhi. Please stick to the topic at hand.

    I was not disputing your posts.

    In fact, I know you are experienced, helping many with your expert opinions and I have great appreciation for your hard and selfless work!

    Still not understand , how my earlier post becomes wasting your space and time, as I was taking about one point and explaining my different opinion.

    It was not wasting my time, I just did not have time to read it. At night, I have very limited time. You have been concerned with what is going on since you started the process. I have been watching it and following it for years and have been proven correct many more times than most others.

    It does not matter what happened last year, or two years ago. What is at issue is that there is a new fiscal year that will start in October for one thing. The other is just because an Embassy office has changed the dates of some appts, it does not mean that visas will be available at that time, or they will be available for those born to a specific country. That is the exact reason that I made a statement back the beginning of July for those that were starting to get appts then not to cancel of delay it as immigration could change at any time and then cancel the appts scheduled for later on. And in fact we have seen that exact thing happen.

    Does not matter if it is a small Embassy, the issue comes down to where the nurse was born, and if from a country that is going to be hit with the retrogression continuing, then their chance of getting a visa is quite slim in September.

    I am tired of seeing attorneys and other promise things when we know they are not going to happen and then everything falls apart for the nurse. I would rather side on the err of caution and then the nurse get lucky, though we are seeing that rarely, then to say that those that have their appts in September are going to get visas then. Chances are slim to none. And if I were placing a wager on it, I would say no for any in September. That is my opinion on it, and I am sticking with it. If most have cancelled appts for August, why would anyone expect that their appt in September will actually happen?
