July 2015 Visa Bulletin and Analysis


July 2015 Visa Bulletin was released earlier today. 

EB2:

Date for EB2 India stayed at 01 OCT 08. EB2 China moved from 01 JUN 13 to 01 OCT 13. The cut-off for all other EB2 countries are Current.

Good News is EB2 China is moving forward.

If you are waiting to file I-485, please use this opportunity to gather all the documents and keep it in place:

EB3:

Cut-off dates for EB3 India moved from 22 JAN 04 to 01 FEB 04. EB3 China stayed at 01 SEP 11. EB3 Philippines became UnavailableFor all other countries the date moved from 15 FEB 15 to 01 APR 15.

Good news is the dates for most of countries have moved forward. 

I-485 Pending inventory:

I-485 pending inventory data was supposed to come out couple of months back. Nothing yet. We will keep a watch on that and will keep you all posted.

Current I-485 inventory shows, For EB2 India, there are 21,082 pending applications, whose priority is before 01 MAY 2010. This number was 20,263 in the previous edition. For EB3 India, it is 27,472  applicants before 01 SEPT 2007 Priority date. It was 29,422 in previous edition.

What to Expect Next Few Months:

For EB3 India:
I am hoping it will move 2 weeks every Visa Bulletin, at the very least one week.

For EB2 India:
I thought the dates will move to 01 FEB 2010 by September visa bulletin -- http://ambals.blogspot.com/2015/03/what-to-expect-in-fy-2015-eb2-india.html. I was hoping they will start applying spillovers from July Bulletin and it will move faster. But, what has happened is totally opposite. The EB2 India forward movement stopped. The date stayed the same. Over the last few days, they have indicated that there is a very high sudden demand for other EB2 categories. This directly affects the spillover to EB2 India. I hope DOS is just being cautious and keeping the date the same to watch the demand this month. Now, the dates movement will totally depend on demand for other EB2 categories. I hope the demand stabilizes and they move it forward in August.

  1. Seems to me, worst case scenario is kicking in. Demand in EB2 ROW has gone up and by moving Pr. date early this year, USCIS has opened the can of worms :) EB3 to EB2 upgrades are very high. I know in my friend circle 9 people have upgraded from Eb3 to EB2 in last 3 months...and couple of my friends with early 2009 date are waiting eagerly the dates to be current so that they can upgrade. I can imagine in entire USA how many people would have already been upgraded from EB3 to EB2. My best guess, this year spill over would be around 10-15 K max and EB3 to EB2 upgrades will consume almost whole spill over. There are 27K pending cases for EB3 I up to 2007 and add up another 15k-20k EB3 I cases up to Oct 2008. Total would be around 42-47K pending cases in EB3 I before OCt 2008. My guess, dates will not move anymore this year. Next finance year 485 pending inventory in OCT 2015 will still show 20-25K pending cases for EB2 I and if USCIS follows the same approach next year (Move dates early), you will see the same movements :). Hope this will not happen and my P date (2010 June) would be current next year.....

  8. My PD is April 2009 (EB2) and my wife got an RFE (bonafide marriage) on her I485 in April 2015. I just checked the case status and USCIS responded to the RFE (The case status was not available until yesterday). I have a good feeling that USCIS will move the dates forward in the next 2 bulletins. Anyways, only time will tell. Good luck everyone!

  9. EB2-I is in big trouble.....No spillover to EB2-I this year.....

    Employment-Based Immigrant Visa Projections for the Coming Months

    State Department officials project that EB-2 India will not advance further this fiscal year. Because immigrant visa demand from other countries has doubled, it is unlikely that unused visa numbers from other categories will be available for application to EB-2 India, as had been the case in prior years.

  11. They should post consistently I-485 inventory so that they don't cook visa demand ,specially delaying for 5 to six month .
    Once I-485 is out it easier to figure out spillover more accurately and predict future movements.

  12. DOS cannot do this actually.. Its being 3 rd year consecutive that EB I didn't cross the 2009 barrier. Strangely they don't release the I-485 as well.. seriously its kind a Dead end situation. But nothing can be done from our side only thing we can wait and watch ...

  15. Surprising, shocking, frustrating!!... can't express in words how disappointed I am along with many of us. Somehow I feel that if porting from EB3 to EB2 is allowed, then there should be some porting from EB2 to some other higher category.. EB1 Managerial category probably... I mean with the increasing amount of porting, there should be someway to vent the original EB2 applicants. Doesn't seem right that original EB2 applicants and the "portants" should be in the same pool... anyways thats just my thought. Porting just extends the vicious circle to an infinite blackhole of unpredictability. Something seriously needs to be done!!... otherwise it is going to be an infinite wait.

    1. You have to understand certain things..All the employers started applying on EB2 from 2010 onwards. Prior to that, every body shoppers applied on EB3 to hold the candidate. Even I was eligible for EB2 but my employer forced to apply on EB3 citing unnecessary queries. In 2011, I ported to EB2 and no queries came. My employer purposefully dragged and cried to port to EB2. Many, like me got trapped. So EB3-EB2 porting is fair enough. The main culprit is EB1 Multinational Manager

Pd for Eb3 was 2006. You don't tell not to port, you may have come to usa in 07 or 08 or something like that. Hum yahaan 2003 se jhak nahin Mara Rahe. After 2010 every Tom dick and Harry applies on eb2, you should have come to usa in 2002, 2003 or 2004. Beta tab pata chalta aapko Kitna g**nd lagti hai and how everyone weathered the recession. You are just FOB after 2010 and trying to preach . So just keep quite and enjoy the wait like lot us did.

  20. I'm in EB2, PD Dec 2010. I came to this country in 2003 for MS. It is indeed frustrating.

    But, please stop suggesting that eb3 ro eb2 should be stopped. It's like turning on ourselves. It is indeed frustrating, but it is also selfish to push fellow iIndian ndians down for us to come up. They were waiting f9r a ling timw too. Luclonger than eb2 and we all nnow it. It's simply not right and most of you know it too.

    Let's hope for the best and prepare for the worst. We know how the immigration syse works in this country.
    1. Live with it, or
    2. Find a way to be happy or
    3. Do something about it that's helps all immigrants to support the cause.

    Stop bitching about the inevitable and think positive. Because that's the only thing we can pretty much do.

    2. When supplies run short, even Americans turn on each other. We saw that in Katrina Hurricane. So to expect these egocentric desis to behave any better is hilarious!

      The vast & varied experience of ported-EB2 (some bad apples apart) brings so much more worth to the industry, than the freshly minted MS-EB2 (some exceptional apples apart), that EB3-to-EB2 porting should almost be a right!

      The only fraud, I believe, is the EB1-multinational manager, where desi firms are artificially tagging a super-duper title to secure future employment based GCs

    1. In current situation, it looks like true. Even if EB2-I gets 10K SO, EB3 porters will eat it. Situation may be clear with 485 pending inventory but it looks like H4 candidates have flooded EAD applications in thousands and they don't have work force to tackle the situation and that's why they are holding the 485 inventory too :)

      Delete
    2. 180K H4 EAD Applications to be more specific ...

      Delete
    3. H4 EAD has nothing to do with I-485 inventory .I-485 tracks or matches number of visa available for a year to application or priority dates getting current for that year or month in various categories.

      Delete
  24. Thats the thing. There is nothing to be against the "porters".. the system allows it and so its all fine. The system should be amended to give a priority to the original EB2 applicants because I think they have earned it (advanced degrees earned in US, publications, research etc..). However the majority of porters (easily 80%), are porting just out of their experience and skills (And 90% of them are IT based analysts who may have done a PMP/Black belt certificate to upgrade..cant even call them a Techie)... that they have gathered over the years working. Thats not a bad thing at all. And when EB3 is similar to being a lifelong wait, everyone has the right to move ahead and rightfully when you have worked hard and attained certain skills, you should be allowed to move higher in the order...

    May be, the system should be amended, so that whenever there is a porting, what may be the case, you dont retain your old PD (even if you had an approved I140). That way you are not taking advantage that is not earned by you. Thats a fair thing to. Otherwise the day is not far when EB3 will be phased out or backlogs for both of these categories will be same and hell will let loose!!.. :) :)...

    2. I am in your boat too. EB2 with Masters and so called "special skills" and "special certifications".
      I am really good at what I do in my job (like most people here regardless of their education, EB category, background etc).

      I understand the frustration on the dates, but your suggestions are short sighted (to stop or limit porting). It is reality of life (and legally allowed process) and it feels unfair for the most part. So is most things in life.

      There will be bad apples everywhere. We cannot start to differentiate us (EB2) and think we are extra special. we are not. Some people have better luck than others, but for the most part we are all going through the same pain of lengthy immigration process.

      Stop giving suggestions that are self centered and short sighted and stop making this process more painful than what it is.

      Take inspiration from all the H4 folks and their fight with their delay

    3. No comparison between EB2 and EB3.. every one is great .... but the truth is, every time the date moves till mid and retro to 2004/2005 and next year again same situation and expert says Due to heavy porting have to take this decision. Point is if Porting is the issue fix the loop hole.

    4. What you are referring to is frustration, which I share with thousabd others. That doesn't make porting the issue and a lophole. Its legal.

      Will you agree your argument if you were in eb3 and eligible to port to eb2? This is what I refer as short a sighted view.
      I am thankful for where I am despite the long waits and let's hope for the best.

    5. Porting is legal. If you are complaining about the system, complain about the system that grants citizenship to children born on this soil irrespective of the parents nationality. Would you say to change those rules too ? Very few western countries grant citizenship by birth. I am EB2 Feb-2012. I would want the system to go faster, but have nothing against porting.

  28. Looks like EB2-I is in catch 20 situation.
    All allocated quota for EB2-I are eaten up by EB3-1.
    And
    EB-1 is now taking its full quota, so very less spill over.

    Until, EB3-I comes close to EB2-I, its not going to cross 2008.

    Expected trend for EB2-I is 10+ Years.

    2008 = 2018
    2009 = 2019
    2010 = 2020
    2011 = 2021
    And
    after 2011, it will be 15+

    2012 = 2027
    2013 = 2028

  34. Guys, whether EB3I takes any numbers by porting or not is immaterial. Porting does not exceed 3K per year, and that number is barely enough to move EB2I by a couple of months. Without spillovers exceeding at least 15K, EB2I simply will not see the light of the day. If you want to blame someone, blame the Chinese investors and Indian EB1C managers.

      Delete
    4. May 2012:

      Things can change. Predictions were dire back in 2008. In 2007, everyone rushed to file their GCs. The years from 2010-2014 were damn too good for spillovers. EB2I consumed about 100K visas in those 5 years...averaging 20K an year! And still, the dates did not move well past 2009. That was the kind of demand in the heyday of green card rush of 2006/7.

      It is a possibility going forward, EB2I doesn't get enough spillover. Unfortunately EB1 is the key. As I wrote in the original post here, porting is immaterial. With EB3-ROW almost becoming current, even the 3K porting will eventually disappear. EB1 is the category that is capable of consistently providing 20K falldown visas if it was managed properly without any fraud.

      EB2-ROW can also come around. If EB3-ROW becomes current, that will automatically alleviate EB2-ROW demand.

      EB5 for the forseeable future looks locked.

      Again, anything is possible. With I140 EAD, you may not even need a GC. Good luck,

  35. 06/15/2015: EB-2 India Visa Bulletin Prediction by Oppenheim of DOS

    AILA reports that according to Mr. Oppenheim, Unexpectedly, during the past few months, the EB-2 demand for worldwide increased more than doubled, and therefore the EB-2 India cut-off date had to hold steady in July 2015. Should this trend continues, Oppenheim predicts that EB-2 India may not move forward duing August and September 2015. Ouch!

  38. Are there any laws in US similar to RTI or Transparency of Information types through which we can demand publication of the inventory? It is insane not to publish it...atleast some logical prediction can be carved out from there. Right now, its all based on OPPenheimer dictat and some shooting in the dark.
    And to people who suggest not to think or likewise, each one of us has invested a lot of time and effort in this, atleast I have... to not think or worry about it. Would you have similar attitude with any of your personal investments or businesses? Green Card is similar to a personal investment... where you have invested time, money and your headache. It is a choice that each of us in this forum has made... and people who speak about not worrying or having patience or going back to India... they are just two faced people who have the mentality of "agar yahaan nahi to wahaan hi sahi".... common guys, we know somehow we are helpless... but cant we see that what is going on is INSANE? EB3 has a lifelong wait, EB2 is now becoming a 10-15 yr affair!!.... and on the other hand, there are programs to give legal residency to illegal cross border residents?... Cant we do anything? Dont we have any right to protest or atleast put the word forward?... Hath pe Hath dhare baithne se kuchh nahi hoga... aur na kuchh kabhi hua hai... THIS IS JUST NOT RIGHT..

    "EB-2/EB-3 India

    As a result of the significant forward movement in EB-2 India earlier this year, additional forward movement for the next few months is unlikely mainly due to EB-3 to EB-2 upgrades. Additionally, because demand for EB-2 ROW has more than doubled unexpectedly over the past few months, EB-2 India cut-off date had to be held steady in the July 2015 Visa Bulletin. Unless there is a significant decline in EB-2 ROW demand, Mr. Oppenheim does not anticipate any forward movement in EB-2 India for the rest of this fiscal year (September 30).

    EB-3 India is expected to continue to advance by one to two weeks per month. This has been the recent trend over the past several months."

    *********************
    This is really depressing :((. Ambals do you have any thoughts on if the dates stand any chance of movement (to end of Dec 2008) beginning of the fiscal year FY2016/Oct-Nov or will they usually wait a few months?

    1. Assuming that there is no change in law .. ( I think it is very unlikely that law will change anyways )
      1. If you are EB3 India at July 2012 as PD , you are looking at 20 plus years wait .
      2. If you are EB2 India with July 2012 as PD , expect 2019 earliest if you are lucky otherwise realistically 2022 or so .
      Do not complain of endless wait . You are waiting for 3 years . There are people here who are waiting much longer .

  54. My prediction is that the we will get no spillover so around 2800 visas for EB2 which we normally get for a fiscal year. If everyone has a spouse it means 1400 visas ,which means technically based on inventory report from Jan 2015 the date should go to around 12/31/2008.

    Now what spillover we get for EB2 just depends obviously it will not be 0. EB2 has got approximately 15k for the last 3,4 years, even if the we consider EBROW and porting to be 50% more we may get 7k in spillover...worst case scenario another 3.5K in spillover which puts us at 3.5k to 1.5k extra visas. So date could potentially go to Mar to May 2009.

    If USCIS cannot tell us EBROW and EBPorting numbers we can only guess.....like I did.

  59. That's crazy.... If priority date is June 2009 and you are expecting to get green card in 2017.. 8+ years is way too much...

    So, basically we come US on H-1B... when we freshly come on H-1B, we don't have that much knowledge about this process (as we are not even that much concern as we are not married or just married ) that we need to ask our employer to start GC process for us..so, count 2-3 years after we come in US... So, You come in 2007---> Priority date in EB2 is 2010 --> Get GC --2018... So, total 11+ years to get GC is totally crazy....

    I came in here in 2007, my PD is 2010... So, if trend will continue this way.... I am not expecting GC until 2018-2019.... that's really crazy... My cousin went Australiya in 2009 and he is already having PR , he settled down his own business, owns house there.... So, where am I? Bound in backlog!!!!

    1. Correction - not "we" you come to US on H1B. There are many of us who can be called "we" who came on F1 Visas... to study for either Bachelors or masters or PHD - Struggle hard to get scholarships, assistantships, or on campus jobs to survive. Then we wake up nights after nights to publish papers, finish our Thesis dissertation and yeah did I mention we also publish a thesis book which gets placed in the library (So proud.. I went back to my university this spring and found my book)... anyways, and then we get placed again in the H1-B loop (Struggle for OPT and then Struggle to find a job that would sponsor H1B - unless you go to Fraud Desi IT consultants) and then comes the Green card loop for which you are worried.. my friend!!...

      You came in 2007 and have a PD of 2010...
      I am here since 2003 and my PD is 2009!!...

      Be happy where you are; be happy that you never had to struggle in US... , and yes...grass is always greener on the other side.

    2. Well... I said "we" was not for all H-1B community. "We" was for me and my spouse....Read properly, I said my story... Grow up dude!

      Also, whatever struggle you did here to study, I did in India to earn my master degree..I also woke up nights to get my master degree... I also struggled to get industrial project, worked in company in India as part of last semester without any pay, wrote 400 pages book for that project to clear final semester.... So, don't think that they just give you degree without any hard work or qualification from any reputed university in India....


      Not just me, everyone here is frustrated with this backlog....we are not even able to predict when we will get greencard and when will start setteling down... So, I was just comparing this to other country system... Also, I never though to come here and it was not even my dream... But, it's just destiny that I came here... And now, it is very very difficult to go back and start from zero again in my home country. And if situation will always be like this, it doesn't look like backlog will clear even in next 20 years and I cannot live another 20 years like these many limitations. So, if I have to go back home country tomorrow, I will go back today....


      Grow up dude! Do not show your smartness here, every one is smart and educated here and everyone worked hard to get their degrees and just because of their smartness, they got H-1B visa....

      Delete
    3. I think comparing a Master's degree from India and the US is ridiculous. A lot of H1B holders don't have any "smartness" and are in the US after faking their experience and resumes - the same way they got their diploma after cheating in exams, labs and projects.

      Delete
    4. I can understand how you feel but there are a number of problems with your rant.

      1. You took a calculated risk to come to the US, and despite all the green card nonsense, it's still quite a sensible risk. Your brother might be one out of 10 who is successful in Australia, but in general, Indians have found the xenophobic society problematic. On the other hand, the strong desi community here makes it easy to establish roots.

      2. Comparing yourself to your brother etc. is just an exercise in futility. People really need to be happy with what they have. The people who are working in the US even without the green card are in the top 10% globally income and wealth wise. Learn to appreciate good things in life.

      3. Having said all this, the green card wait sucks. But consider that your spouse is now eligible for an EAD, which we did not have back in the day. Also consider that H1B holders themselves might get I140 EAD and some job mobility. If you don't have the overhead of stamping the H1B visa, it becomes very easy to travel. Life in general will ease with some of these changes even without the green card.

      In the 1990s, the H1B visa could not be extended beyond 6 years, so if you didn't get a GC, you were out of luck. AC21 changed all of that, and in fact, the ability to extend H1B indefinitely is what created the long wait.

      The easier it becomes for you to stay, the longer the wait will be because more people will compete.

      Just chill and take it easy.

      Delete
    5. I got my masters degree from the US too (a top 10 college in Electrical Engineering). If you had an assistantship, getting the masters was a piece of cake. There were 0 costs involved, you got to involve the life of a US as a bachelor, and got paid for it! I fooled around in my masters, also published papers (got to go to Australia, Spain and Hawaii to present them), and also wrote a "thesis book". It's all a waste. No one cares or reads what you publish. The university system forces you to do it because the professors have to justify their tenure and always chase funding.

      Masters in the US is not that hard to get - not even from the top competitive schools like Berkley and Stanford. I would not necessarily look down on someone who got the masters from India.

      In the IT, getting the right break in the right technology is important. Curse Indian IT giants all you want, but the fact is that they own the consulting side and they have legions of people trained in almost any cutting edge technology. In the hindsight, getting the right break in the right IT consulting company back in India could have been better for my career. Whatever knowledge I obtained in my Masters has gone to dust. I learn to code and do it on the right things, and if I had done it sooner, I would have been that much ahead in my career.

    6. for your US degrees you already got awarded with 20% h1b quota.. getting h1b for general quota was a nightmare.. remember those days when u have to win lottery to get in here.. so dont compare apple to orange.. struggle is almost same on both side.

    7. Thank you guys! You said what I wanted to say!

      Dude, I am not comparing education of any country. It is not education, it is student who are smart or dumb... But.... I am just wondering , are you proud of the place from where you are from? You.... yourself putting your place (where you born and brough up ) down.. That's really really shameful. Cheating happens, everywhere, but with cheating.. you can only pass the exam, cannot get good score or will not be successful in your carrier with cheating. People who did masters from India are not dumb at all..... Heard of IIM? No, because people like you only can study by spending good amount of money from parent's help... For, IIM, you actually have to be smart... Just chill man... Students from India who cannot afford to come US for doing masters are not dumb at all.... And man....people on H-1B are not dumb either... they struggle and get good job with so many limitations... I have seen U.S. citizens (of course Indian) having computer science degree in hand with no limitation for looking for job in their field are working in walmart.... just chill man ,,and come on back on earth...

It is ~16 k this Jan 2015 compared to 6400 in Jan 2014 13 k in 2013 and 11 k in 2011 and 7 k in 2010.

Biggest mistake coming here 12 years back and getting myself two masters degrees during this time. Should have stayed in India or went for higher education to some other country where immigrants are given better rights and pathways to naturalize. I have a decent job and life here but having limited freedom to move jobs, start a business or even travel is not the way to live life.

    http://www.murthy.com/2015/06/26/visa-bulletin-analysis-predictions-and-trends-eb2-india-stalls/

    EB2 India is not expected to advance beyond the current cutoff date of October 1, 2008 during FY15. The reason for this is that demand in the EB2 worldwide category more than doubled in the past few months. Therefore, the extra visa numbers expected to be available to EB2 India did not materialize. EB2 India advancement cannot occur this fiscal year, which ends on September 30, 2015, unless there is a significant drop in EB2 worldwide demand.

    1. Wrong.

      The numbers you are citing in 2011, 12, and 13 do not have any EB2I numbers at all. They belong to the rest of the world. Unfortunately, the USCIS did not break down the inventory data per country. They used to do it in the past, but this time, they aggregated the data.

      No one from EB2I with PD >= May 1, 2010 has ever sent in their 485s. Not to scare you, but typically, EB2I easily generates some 25K demand numbers EACH year. So approximately, 100-120K EB2I 485 applications have never been filed, and this number continues to grow every day.

      EB2I is guaranteed only 3K numbers each year. These numbers are largely consumed by the pending upgrade demand. The pending upgrade demand is another unknown and is possibly increasing every day too.

      The dates are going to crawl...literally. If nothing changes, EB2I will achieve a real movement of at most 3-4 months every year, and in all forms and respects, it will resemble EB3I. Get ready for 1 week movement every month just like EB3I.

    4. Guys, what is there to believe in IV or not. It is just a body of volunteers trying to get something done. It is not a profit making organization. So they share what they know, sometimes things go for a toss like last time.

      07/08/2015: Rule-Making Agenda for Modernization of Employment-Based Immigration System

      Record reflects that the Obama Administration has been following the rule-making agenda for administrative immigration reforms which are published in the Spring 2016 Rule-Makiing Agenda. As scheduled, USCIS published final rule for the wage methodology for H-2B program in the form of a final rule recently. Today, 07/08/2015, USCIS submitted its "proposed" rule for provisional unlawful presence waivers of inadmissibility as schedule for July 2015 in the agenda. It is thus anticipated that the USCIS and DOL will initiate or complete its rule-making process for modernization of employment-based immigration system in the following sequence:
      August 2015: Submit to OMB a proposed rule for significant public benefit parole for entrepreneurs
      October 2015: Submit to OMB a proposed rule for modernization of employment-based immigration system including so-called pre-registration of adjustment application for those with the approved I-140 petition
      December 2015: DOL will submit a proposed rule to modernize PERM program including premium processing of PERM applications
      January 2016: Release of final rule and implementation of reform of H-1B1, Cw-1, and E-3 nonimmigrant programs and reform of EB-1B outstanding researcher or teacher immigration program.
      We will keep track of these rule-making agenda for the employment-based immigration reform.

    5. Long way to go :-

      Since proposed rule making agenda is set at October 2015, it will take a while before a final rule is completed, published, and implemented. Our site followers may remember our earlier posting on the rule-making steps, beginning from (1) draft of proposed rule; (2) submission of the draft to the White House OMB for review and approval; (3) OMB review and approval from 30 to 90 days or longer; (4) Release of the approved proposed rule in the federal register from 30 days to 90 days for public comment; (5) Review and study of public comments by the bill sponsor with no fixed deadline; (6) Draft of interim final or final rule with no fixed deadline; (7) Submission of the draft of final rule to the OMB for review and approval without fixed deadline; (8) Completion of OMB review within 30 to 90 days and approval; (9) Publishing in the federal register the approved final rule in the federal register: and (10) Implementation of the final rule on effective date which is fixed in the final rule. Only "binding" and enforcement rule is an interim final or final rule. Readers can thus imagine what kind of timeline they have to see the implementation of the binding final rule of EB Immigration Modernization Rule.
      One good news is that the I-140 EAD or Preregistration plan will indeed move into the rule-making process, even though they will have to keep patience to see this final rule at the end of the rule-making tunnel and light in the next year. Congratulations to the approved I-140 waiter for the propects for EB-485 pre-registration opportunities with accompanying EAD and Travel Documents as well as opportunities to change employment without its effect on the ongoing green card proceeding just as what they for their colleagues who have filed I-485 applications when their priority dates became current and changing employers and go into the free labor market.
