February 2013 Visa Bulletin is out!

The Visa Bulletin for February 2013 is out. It’s a slog.

Family Categories (F-1 to F-4) moved a month or less. Tough news for families, especially the spouses and children of U.S. Lawful Permanent Residents.

For Employment-based categories, EB-1 remains current across the board. For other non-Indian or Chinese workers, the EB-2 category (advanced degrees) remains current, and the 3rd preference (skiilled workers) moved up a month, to 15March07. For Indian EB-2 workers, there is no movement; EB-3 workers saw it progress a week. For Chinese EB-2 workers, the new priority date is 15Jan08, showing a month progress; Chinese EB-3 workers got a month and a half of progress, to 15NOV06.

Congress, I think we can do better than keeping all these folks in line for years, working hard for the United States and our people and economy. They are playing by the rules, and give us their best skills and years. Give’em the greencard, let’em pay taxes, buy houses and goods, and raise their children here. That’s the story of American success, always has been.
