It appears that the I-140 EAD/AP plan is moving forward through the rulemaking process. There is some confusion as to when it will become effective. The government’s obsession with those they perceive to be entrepreneurs continues. They are working on regulations to provide them with benefits. The USCIS and State Dept may work together to allow AOS filings at an earlier date. The idea would be that the USCIS would use the date the State Dept. is now giving the NVC as the “current” date for AOS filing purposes. India EB2 is not going to move during the remainder of this fiscal year (3 and a half months). Charlie Oppenheim believes that reinterpretation is not legally possible and that recapture may be possible, but would be difficult. The speculation is that nonimmigrant visa revalidation in the U.S. is not going to happen, or at least not soon. Bottom line: No reinterpretation/recapture on the known horizon. No EB2I or EB3I VB cutoff date movement in the near future NIV revalidation is not likely to be resumed soon. The approved I-140 regulation is moving forward. The USCIS may implement a system that would allow AOS applicants to file earlier than they are allowed to file now, by perhaps six months. USCIS confirmed their current policy that an employee keeps their priority date when an employer withdraws the I-140.
