      who wrote this: " then you or your family should pack things up and go back to where you came from and live happily together"
      It is not easy to come back to our country,
      my situation: I have an American husband,he has American family here,we have a house and good job.
      Only what we miss is my sons and daughters/of US citizen/.
      They are legally waiting in their country on F1 petition.
      We don't want to move from US to be together with my children!
      Please understand,how pain is for immigrants to wait legally years:(............

  20. Nice movement for F2A a month movement per month, while they move EB2 4 years to 2009. Looks like they are slogging their a**e to get it move. Some je*ks here were taking about executive action from white house. It will take years to come into practice. I wholeheartedly support the immigration reform. But the problem is immigration reform is all about illgals getting their documents. The problems of applicants belong to family category is overshadowed by the issues of illegal immigrants. Without securing borders there's no point of immigration reform. It sounds very correct if you think from their perspective. If president take executive action then there will be a chance of government shut down by opposition again. Which is bad for economy, jobs everything. Even if he takes action, it might take another year to for law come into practice because they will have to secure their borders first. I will be more than happy if F2A won't retrogress again before it reaches August 2013 priority date. God save us all.

    1. I totally agree with you. The problem for immigrant reform is about illegal people. We are here legally with greencard and we should be able to bring our spouse faster as Americans. Anyway is just frustrating the way that they do with us.

      Delete
    2. Well that people have fought for immigration reform, not like many of you that don't do anything. Those "illegals" have gathered together, making phone calls, marches, protests. If you want something done fight for it, because thanks to this people President Obama will take executive action, and people like you will benefit from it... Why? yeah because of those "illegals."

      Delete
    3. Hope you're not an alien here. Get your facts right. Immigration reform is to stop illegal aliens from coming to this country in future. Just look at how many illegals have crossed the border after announcing the reform bill to take advantage of it. I am in this country through legal means. I didn't jump the border to come here and take advantage of the benefits, this country is giving. I came here, invested in my education, got a degree, applied for jobs and got a job based on my qualification and skills. Hundreds of thousands of people like me are walking with dignity in this country because they earned it. I deserve a stay in this country because I'm contributing to this economy by paying taxes. Illegals have no right to come to this country in the first place. You were talking about fight for immigration reform, Law makers representing us are fighting in Washington to help people like me to get connected to spouses and children asap. That will make their arrival in this country asap. I don't need to go there and stand with a placard saying " We need immigration reform because we can take advantage of the system". Lawyers that represents us are doing it as best as they can. So you don't need to say that illegals are fighting for justice in this country. They don't deserve any justice. Only justice for them is to go back to their own country. That would save billions of tax payers money spent on alien detention centers in Texas and California.

    5. Oh great! Enlighten us then. According to your definition immigration reform is to give illegal aliens and benefit scrounging people with full benefits and freebies and keep legal aliens and their families waiting for eons to meet their spouses and kids. Agreed! I hope that makes you happy :D now. Now you tell your friends to jump the fence at the border and come here, Not!

  34. F1 anh H1 can bring their spouse to Us even their Nonimmigtation but F2A cant. Its so ridiculous.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. H1 have specialty occupations that are badly needed in the country.And to attract these highly qualified professionals, they can take their dependents with them and spend their money in the country instead of going out. Likewise with F1, they can have their dependents with them but use their money from their pockets from their own country. In short they are just like tourists which are beneficial to the country's economy, can you see the logic? What's ridiculous in there? For F2A or some family baesd, maybe many are beneficial but not all of them, not like highlly qualified professionals H1 and F! which is just like attracting tourists which can boost their economy. Try to think sometimes before assuming it's ridiculous.

      Delete
    2. One thing more, H1 and F1(student) have their dependents with them on non-immigrant visas.On the other hand, F2a and other family based are petitioned for immigrant visa, so you can't be with your spouse on non immigrant visa, it can be a conflict of interest.

      Delete
    3. The above 2 people have no clue what are they talking about.One says dependents of H1 and F1 boast economy and F2A not?The other talks about conflict of interest.Every one knows that current law doesn't allow F2a applicants to join there spouse in US for long time until they get GC.All we are asking is make provision in law to get F2A applicant as a dependent and then can wait for GC while in US.Remember people on GC who petitioned for there spouse are no way lesser to H1 in contributing to economy and some times they even contribute more.U H1's stop stealing immigrant visas from FB category.Demand for correcting immigration law about backlogs in ur category instead of stealing.
