Here is what I saw from the Visa Bulletin, I expect lots of angry people, epecially those guys (gals) did not submit theie EB based cases in last 2 or 3 weeks.
The sudden backlog reduction efforts by Citizenship and Immigration Services Offices during the past month have resulted in the use of almost 60,000 Employment numbers. As a result of this unexpected action it has been necessary to make immediate adjustments to several previously announced cut-off dates. All Citizenship and Immigration Services Offices have been notified of the following:
Effective Monday July 2, 2007 there will be no further authorizations inresponse to requests for Employment-based preference cases. All numbers available to these categories under the FY-2007 annual numerical limitation have been made available.
Employment preference numbers will once again be available to these chargeability areas beginning October 1, 2007, under the FY-2008 annual numerical limitation.
So what’s my point? I gave up my hope on “goverment taking care of me when I retire” a while ago, and this just confirmed my belief. I will continue to invest for myself and my family.
On a separate note, it may be good to watch Moore’s documentary “Sicko”, it will make you feel stay in the US more like a third world (oh excuse me, developing) country 🙂
