    Apparently, there is some method in the madness and we cannot accuse USCIS on sitting on their behinds doing nothing. Here is what they outlined in their to do list:

    "4. Modernize, improve and clarify immigrant and nonimmigrant visa programs to grow our economy and create jobs
    Who U.S. businesses, foreign investors, researchers, inventors and skilled foreign workers.What

    USCIS will:

    1. Work with the Department of State to develop a method to allocate immigrant visas to ensure that all immigrant visas authorized by Congress are issued to eligible individuals when there is sufficient demand for such visas.

    2. Work with the Department of State to modify the Visa Bulletin system to more simply and reliably make determinations of visa availability.

    3. Provide clarity on adjustment portability to remove unnecessary restrictions on natural career progression and general job mobility to provide relief to workers facing lengthy adjustment delays.

    4. Clarify the standard by which a national interest waiver may be granted to foreign inventors, researchers and founders of start-up enterprises to benefit the U.S economy.

    5. Authorize parole, on a case-by-case basis, to eligible inventors, researchers and founders of start-up enterprises who may not yet qualify for a national interest waiver, but who:Have been awarded substantial U.S. investor financing; or Otherwise hold the promise of innovation and job creation through the development of new technologies or the pursuit of cutting-edge research.

    6. Finalize a rule to provide work authorization to the spouses of certain H-1B visa holders who are on the path to lawful permanent resident status.

    7. Work with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to develop regulations for notice and comment to expand and extend the use of optional practical training (OPT) for foreign students, consistent with existing law.

    8. Provide clear, consolidated guidance on the meaning of “specialized knowledge” to bring greater clarity and integrity to the L-1B program, improve consistency in adjudications, and enhance companies’ confidence in the program.

    When Upon issuing necessary guidance and regulations."

    They appear to have acted on at least two of the eight items on the to do list, even though they seem to have started at the bottom, doing things that were already long in the works. :)

    Amen to that. Just that the right wing media considers Obama capable of much more than he eventually ends up doing.

    They see him as the spawn of Satan, but then they also believe that the Earth is only 4,000 years old.
