So excited! So motivative! Let’s not be too optimistic, 15 years to GC. I will be 43. After I get my gc, I will move to a low cost area and open an Indian restraunt. Getting closer to my American dream!!!

      Yeah, my SO is American citizen, although I must clearly say, I am not going to try that way.

      I would like to think about that way of getting a green card when I am married. We aren’t married yet. But I would like to make my own chances and be independent rather than depending on marriage. Which is why I am not thinking about going that route.

      But seriously, they should do something about GCs for those who are genuinely meritorious and are contributing for economy here in US. H-1B visa holders from India are paying taxes equally as anyone else but are living in uncertainty. The whole visa abuse is another discussion. They should do something about that as well.

      @larry_off: the system is stacked against you just because you were born in a wrong country. If you think this matters work to get the law fixed. There are many forces that want to retain status quo in the garb of diversity on an employment Visa.

      According to today's law, your taxes are utterly irrelevant.

    Given you said 15 years, I assume that you are in EB2 queue. There are 300K people in queue and 2K are getting green card each year. Now do your math. :)

    If you are so confident of your restaurant business. You should start that early, invest and get EB5.
