DOS Releases July 2009 Visa Bulletin

The Department of State (DOS) released its July 2009 Visa Bulletin.  There is nothing new to report in the employment-based one (EB1) and employment-based three (EB3) categories.  The biggest news is that employment-based two (EB2) retrogressed to January 2000 for nationals of India and China.  There are even ‘grumblings’ from DOS that EB1 may retrogress in the near future for Indian and Chinese nationals. 

Will this mess ever be fixed by our Government?  It should not take this long for qualified individuals to receive U.S. permanent residency.
