  • 10,000 u visas

    I have question,if USCIS grants only 10,000 u visas a year,that means they only give 200 visas per state, 200 visas x 50 states= 10,000 is this right?

    u Looks Dumb. Please read on U visa on USCIS carefully or contact your lawyer.
    USCIS issues U STATUS as they receive applications. It doesn't matter from application which status.

      Yes that's right. 200 visas per state.
      I applied in may 2014. Been 17 months haven't heard anything as of yet. Wait is approximately 24 months as of now.
      Best of luck

            Not RILEs .......Its Rules

            Dear Friend,

            There is no such Rules 200 Visas per state.

            I understand u like My language, I m sorry for that.

            who ever told you that's wrong.

            Just check the USCIS Website otherwise search and read Asista U visa or NOlO u visa

            I wish u know actual LAW, be carefully from Immigration Scam.

            if u know the real Law it will prevent you from cheating.

            Another tip....

            if you have applied more then 90 days ago u can ask for early work authorization........ yes there is a law.

              Work permit after 90 days is just a proposal suggested by a group of law firms. It's not a rule

                Work Authroization just after 90 days of filing of your initial application

                Kumarbhai,

                saal mu barak or Jay shri Krishna.

                Whatever u read in that letter is proposal, but proposal on what basis ?

                Law is already mentioned in that letter /proposal.

                Do u know what is - William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008, Pub. L. No. 110-457, 122 Stat. 5044-91, Dec. 23, 2008.

                I will make it easy for you - Please read carefully Part of that letter -

                USCIS should use existing regulations to implement Congressional intent and accelerate EAD grants to U applicant victims of crimes. In 2008, Congress added a bona fide determination basis for U applicant EADs. 8 U.S.C. § 1184(p)(6); INA § 214(p)(6).

                USCIS has never implemented this law.

                Moreover, under existing regulations, all petitioners for U nonimmigrant status who requested an EAD in their response to Question 7 of Part 2 on Form I-918 are eligible for interim work authorization once their applications have been pending for more than 90 days. 8 C.F.R. § 274a.13(d) “USCIS will adjudicate the application within 90 days from the date of receipt of the application.”

                But USCIS has implemented neither the existing 90-day regulation, nor the Congressionally mandated bona fide standard, individual U applicants have pursued relief in federal court.

                U Applicants Have Successfully Sought Redress in --- Federal Court ----- to Receive Long Delayed EADs -------Under Current Law and Regulation .
                Sanctuary for Families, in partnership with the law firm WilmerHale, prepared individual federal complaints on behalf of several clients with pending petitions for U nonimmigrant status seeking to compel USCIS to issue EADs to those clients.

                Rather than litigate the question in the District of Vermont, USCIS offered to settle each case expeditiously, ------ offering an immediate grant of deferred action and work authorization.

                I hope u understand this ( this is part of that letter / proposal u read )

                Even u don't understand this simple Then contact the law firm WilmerHale. they will help you all.

                    Unregistered Bhai,

                    Big miss understanding about the documents. The U visa give s you work authorization untill it available. The document won't say 90 days rule anywhere.

                          Unregistered bhai,
                          U visa is a humanitarian based benefit envisaged by the Congress and executed by DHS at its discretion. It's not to be taken as your prerogative or right. Complaining against USCIS could go either way. Congratulations if you got it your way but that doesn't work with everybody, they have the powers to reject or revoke any visa.
                          Btw, Naya saal aap ko bhi mubaarak.
