I know there are many threads on this but wanted to initiate a fresh one. Do you think GC issue will sort out for Indians on EB2? Any chance we may have GC in the next 5 years with priority date 2015 or later? Really, what screwed up so much.
It frustrates me that I have to think about options outside US (because of my birth place) even though I absolutely love it here.
P.S lets keep the discussion around how things may or may not change for EB-2s and not how to use EB-1 or EB-5.
P.S-I: not a forum to lecture on how we should go back and build India etc etc. China developed for very different reasons than people not immigrating. In fact China has a lot deeper history with immigrating Chinese.
The Indian system is geared to help people move to the US. From highschool many Indians have this as their plan. There are a few good technical schools in India, but many more that are essentially designed to give you a CS masters you can use to tick a box on a USCIS application form.
Then there are the big Indian consulting firms that have entire divisions of lawyers studying the US immigration law and flooding the system with zillions of applications.
Even if the country cap was lifted and ALL the available greencard visas were given only to Indians the waiting time would still be decades because so many Indians apply every year.
The problem here I think is actually in India. The country needs to find ways to employ its own people instead of intentionally producing more tech people than can get jobs in their own country. It's set up to export its talent and that can't be good for India and it's certainly not good for the US to have its immigration system overwhelmed with people all from a single country.
There's really no change to the US law that can fix this problem. India needs to fix this and start sending a normal number of applicants.
