      Why thanks to Indian. Nothing is finalized with HR 1044. Its not yet passed. Why spreading irrelevant rumors?

    This is what happens if you use the employment green card limits of 1991 in 2019..

    Has the economy and business grown since then ????!!!!

    High time US considers increasing employment greencards. Can you imagine only 12% of the greencards given are employment ones!!!!

      yes. FAD is date that AOS can be approved. DFF is date that you can file AOS. You get EAD/AP inbetween that time.

      You file an i-485 on the "date for filing", and you get the actual physical green card by the "final action date".

      AgileDude is correct but I'd like to also add that you have to visit the "visabulletininfo" page to see whether you actually are allowed to file using the Dates for Filing chart. Some months, depending on your category, the Dates for Filing chart is irrelevant, and you can only file based on the Final Action chart. I think the past pattern for EB visas seems to be that you can use the Dates for Filing chart for the first few months of the fiscal year, then they switch it back to Final Action.

    “There has been a steadily increasing level of Employment applicant demand since late May for adjustment of status cases filed with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, and there is no indication that this increase will end. Therefore, it has been necessary to establish or retrogress many of the August Final Action Dates in an effort to hold worldwide number use within the maximum allowed under the respective FY-2019 annual limits.

    The implementation of the above mentioned dates is expected to be only a temporary issue. For October, the first month of fiscal year 2020, every effort will be made to return these final action dates to those which applied for July.”

    They are basically retrogressing to keep on this year cap.

    • Hi,

      Do you know what they mean by "For October, the first month of fiscal year 2020, every effort will be made to return these final action dates to those which applied for July."? Does this means that by Oct 2019 the Final action dates for EB1 will go back to July bulletin?

    I have I140 from Tesla and now I changed my job and they are reapplying. What happens if this bill passes and my perm is still in progress?

      You have an i140, so you'll not be affected (even if you change employers and get a new i140, your original priority date is what matters).
