BREAKING NEWS – AILA Reports State Department plans to issue a revised Visa Bulletin for July 2007
VIA AILA NATIONAL
We are hearing from multiple sources that, on Monday or Tuesday of
next week, State Department plans to issue a revised Visa Bulletin for
July 2007. This revised Bulletin would retrogress some or all of the
employment-based categories, very likely to the point of unavailable.
Reports from AILA members
about unusual levels and types of activities by USCIS indicate a
particular push to adjudicate employment-based adjustments currently in
the pipeline so as to exhaust visa numbers for fiscal year 2007.
This follows the actions of USCIS in June, when it began rejecting
EB-3 “Other Worker” adjustment applications even though the Visa
Bulletin showed an October 2001 cut-off date, on the basis that the
“Other Worker” numbers for the year had been exhausted.
