Well, assuming her parents are both green card holder, then according to this poorly written fucking piece of shit article, her parents probably filed i130 on behalf of her. She would qualify for dependent under age of 21. The moment her parents become citizen, her case should be able to process pretty quickly.
There are two delays here. First, her parents were not citizens at the time of filing - seems to be the case. This means she is at least 5 years out. Two, her nationality. Every country has a timeline for priority. I don’t remember if i130 considers that though, and I don’t know how h1b green card holder process is different, but all the above is how a normal Gc parent will petition for his or her child.
she mentioned that she lost her dependent petition as she was waiting for green card backlog. This sounds like her parents were not green card holders at the time of the filing. If they were, her daughter’s application would still be considered as child under 21.
Like you said, a lot of info missing. But that is the point: what I describe is standard, but many seems to have some unfortunate thing happen to their application. So yeah, we need to fix the immigration system.
wtf, hslugn? can you even read or think? she came to us at 14, India greencard backlog is more than 10 years. Her parents may be on track for green card, but she is not with them anymore, for a few years now. Even if they got greencard this year, it will take them other 5 years to become citizens and apply for her greencard and they will have to give up indian citizenship to do that. after that she will jave to wait several more years to get it.
I don't think her parents got the green card yet. Considering it happened 7 years ago and their priority date is around 2011, they are still waiting for it (the priority date for Indians is around 2008). I guess the problem ere is she didn't stay under that status and rather applied for F1 Visa so she could go to school, meaning she lost a dependent status from her parents.
Amazon, sorry for being so polite (no). Ive just received my green card and I am an Indian with eb2, so I know the whole process. I've studied, worked and stayed in the US for the past 15 years, and I knew the risks from the beginning. Immifration is a privilege, and the only way to get out of the shitholes we lived before.
"Oh no, I felt entitled to randomly enter a country and it's hard to become a citizen. Now my children have hardships because I didn't properly consider the impact of fully investing into moving to a country that didn't already have a spot for me. Why is it hard to get citizenship? After all I chose a career that exists globally"
She was 14 when she came here asshole. She didn’t decide to be in this mess. And this is a democracy. I can think this is bullshit and vote to change the system. You’re free to be an asshole, because this is a democracy with a lot of freedoms, even for assholes.
Her parents made a really bad decision that wasn't fully thought out - that doesn't make me an asshole. Also, the only reason you are aware of her and therefore care is because she works for Microsoft. You can't just desire to be here, come here, and then assume everything will work out for 70 years. I can't go to Europe and live the rest of my life there just because I like the jobs and culture. This is a global phenomenon and nobody is above that standard practice.
