For all those with PD 2014 and after , what are your thoughts on current estimated wait times in excess of 70 years.
Do you think there would be any change/reform or it is what it is ?

      My bumper sticker would read "Sorry. Thank You. Please" instead of "Horn. Ok. Please" 🍺🍻

    I get that it's good to get, but if you plan well, you can do good without it.

    To make more money without GC you cannot do a lot of things

    Wishful thinking. Gop or Dems have no incentive to 'fix' it.

      Cortonabae, think of the line like a water flow problem. If there is inlet 10x more than outlet that 2017-2008 or 2017-2006 calculation does not work. Even if you drop half the people waiting, you have to count spouse and dependents. That instantly doubles the numbers back to original count.

      Most people think it is worse only for eb3. Eb3 can cross charge as eb2 with 5 years work experience. Many don't do because there is no possibility of getting GC in lifetime. If there was, many will upgrade and the line will not be any different from eb3. For practical purposes, consider eb3 and eb2 to be same.

      70 years is on the lower end of the predictions. I attended one town hall and the 'immigration authority' Congresswoman on the Democrats side corrected the person who asked the question about wait times by pointing out that the wait is not 50 years but 70 years. I'd rather believe this Congresswoman who had deep access to USCIS when Obama was around than someone else on blind.

      If you have been to enough townhalls on Dem side to ask for cosponsorship on immigration issues, you will know which Congresswoman I am talking about.

    Why do you need a green card? Just take the money and move elsewhere, such as Canada or Australia.
