  • I's Not Enough - Petition to increase U Visa cap and expedite the processing.

    Friends,

    It's true it is required - to increase U Visa cap and expedite the processing.

    But it is not Enough

    Actually we need to submit New Petition with Considering following point,

    - To implement 90 days Rule created by Congress for issuing EAD

    We need EAD within 90 Days of filing initial petition for u visa Form I-918.

    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.”

    - Increase U Visa cap

    - Expedite the U visa processing.

    - For the Adjustment of Status - count 3 year, at least From a Day of Application put on Waitlist.

    - Travel Permit while case is pending in Court it helps for Family Re union.

    - To remove compulsory stay in USA for 3 years for the Adjustment of Status Application.
    I believe - just Victim has be present in Court or investigation whenever they need, is enough.

    I request to make New Petition,

        Excellent points for new petition. Please initiate the petition, I will be the first person to sign on it and share it to as many I can. However, I wish everyone in this forum and other forums join in this common cause benefiting thousands of fellow victims. Out of 100,000 pending applicants only few are able to come forward to sign the petition. We need more hundred signatures to seek the attention of the concerned authorities.

            Thanks Mr Shubhash for your Comment and showing your concern, Namaskar

            yep, we need to do something,I am working on that , But u know my friend, there are 284 views on my comment out of that only 2 persons shown interest. Thanks again for showing interest I am happy for both of your interest.

            If you go through all comment on forum Most of just interested for timeline only.

            Out of 100,000 pending applicants only few are able to come forward to sign the petition. We need more signatures to bring the attention of the concerned authorities.

            Forum should be to exchange the ideas.

            I am wondering, most of visitors on forum don't understand or they don't care - what are the facts and issues, we are really facing and how we all together get solutions /resolves our issues

            That is disappointing.

                  When I apply for this visa,I was so exited after all what happen to me that lead me to the decision to apply for this immigration benefit,but after reading on different blogs all this people complaining about all the time and that this visas are taking to be approve,I pretty much lose all hope that this will ever happen at all taking in account,that in November is time for elections and if Mr.Trump gets elected,well! pretty much we all know what's going to happen to the immigration system and we all know his points of view when it come to immigration and immigrant in general, and if he gets elected lets hope this men doesn't stop this program that had benefit many people and community's as well.

                  As far as your petition goes,lets hope somebody hear you and doesn't falls on empty ears ,because like you are saying,there's not enough people signing this kind of proposals as there is people applying for them......JUST SAYING

                          I support your suggestion.
                          we need to do something.
                          if they take this much for Deferred action, then I guess it will be real hard to get Green Card.
                          bcoz
                          generally people apply after crime/incident occur and they are giving EAD bcoz they need victim to convict the criminal but for Regular EAD ( U status ) and to eligible to apply for Green Card it takes around 6-7 year and mean while if they convict the criminal then they don't need victim - so why should they give Green card ?
                          Do u think they will give us green card so easily ?
                          so we have no data - any body got green card after u visa/ status.
                          I Guess it will b real hard time to get Green Card.
                          Seriously, we need to do something.
                          but all members on forum don't understand this. they don't sign petition. they just looking for time line, they like to wait, and they happy if they with Deferred action.

                            U visa petition

                            Where or how to sign the petition.
                            I pledge to get as many signatures as possible.
                            I think advance parole should be given to those on deffered action based on 10,000 visas.

                            sincerely,
                            VS
