Hello everyone, i heard the retrogression might end in August. Let us continue to pray for the best.

I'm afraid this might not be entirely true. Congress will recess in August. Just like last year, the Senate passed the CIR before the August break; however, the Lower house did not take it and instead passed a "Border" bill.

Some predictions would be that Senate will pass the "new compromise" bill before the August break. The Lower house will start to debate in July and hopefully, to pass a bill before the break as well (This we cannot be sure), Then comes the AUGUST BREAK!

Both Houses need to meet and agree on the final bill. We are lucky if they'll be able to do this before August, else it will be done in September....

The big question actually is: Will the Lower House agree to the "Z" Visa, which they say is an "amnesty" to those who broke the law?

The good thing is that for those with pending/approved i-140, the old system will apply, not the merit-based point system.

This is democracy at work! Messy but all sides have to be heard! The proposed CIR or initial versions are out on the Web. My Atty. did not want to show me or give me a copy bec. all these are the 'proposed' CIR. Anyone have a link or copy?

Actually the CIR contains about 1000 pages, and the most that anyone has seen is about 400. This is one of the reasons for all of the issues with it. And I personally do not like what they have in it right now, not with the drug wars going on in Mexico right now. If this plan passes as it is, at least the parts that we have heard of, we will get the wars up here, and that is not a good thing at all.

Safety still has to be at the top of the list.

Let's just hope for the best...if nothing happened this fiscal year, atleast they must give us something like the re-capture of unused visas...this will help us to get us moving...

All we can do is hope and pray....

Sorry, but they are not required to give out anything. And there is nothing that states that recaptured visas will be used for just nurses. Right now, they are being used for all under EB-3. And that is alot of people that are under that. And they have been waiting and waiting, as well.

That's true. Why should unused visa only be assigned to Nurses? They already got 50,000 unbelievable number last time. Many people are waiting waiting waiting under other categories.

One more thing you can do is to have Your Freinds and Relatives in the U.S. who beleive in 'your cause' call their respective Senators and Congressmen as well as call the Whitehouse to complete the CIR which is on the agenda for today! It is never too late! And this is also an important lesson for us on how Democracy in the US works (or vice versa? depending on where you sit?)

Let us hope and pray for all people in the world who would like to immigrate into the United States...they are waiting and waiting as well...some even broke the law by over-staying their visas or entering illegally, they are waiting for this law to pass as well...I am in total support of the "Z" visa which will penalize them but will help them surface out of the shadows....

And that 50,000 went to nurses and their dependents. Less than 20,000 went to actual RNs.

Sorry, but no. There are too many issues with the CIR the way that it is, with what has been published so far. No way that it is going to pass as it is now. Already many fights going on over it, and I do mean fights.

Sorry, but there is never going to be room in the US for all that wish to immigrate here. Just is not going to happen. And guess that you are not aware of the $5000 fine that needs to be paid for that visa, and that the person will need to leave the US for the processing. The ones that overstayed their visas are being picked up by immigration on a daily basis and are being deported. And they will continue to be. And for those that came over here when the retrogression had already started and are working illegally here, they are being deported as well. And sorry, I am 100% behind this. Patients lives are on the line with this.
