This is an important immigration topic affecting Legal, Skilled & Tax Paying Employment Based immigrant community.

In the immigration fiscal year of 2021, an additional 120,000+ visa numbers have spilled over into the employment based category, not including the annually stipulated 140,000 totaling upwards of 260,000 visa numbers. These could be applied by USCIS against a huge backlog (275,000) of Adjustment of Status applications (I-485), before Sep 30th 2021 else they'd lapse and cannot be used beyond that date and there is no carryover to next year. Almost all of the employment based legal immigrants have been waiting for such numbers to be available for, on an average of, 10 to 15 years already and if this abundance of numbers cannot be utilized properly, they'd continue to wait at least upwards of 40-50 years or may be more and will undergo situations of family separation, aged-out children, inability to seek employment of will, restrictions on travel just to name a few.

I'd urge the White House, USCIS, Department of State officials to please treat this issue with the utmost importance & urgency and take the necessary action so there is respite for the thousands of legal immigrants waiting to become permanent residents of this great nation.
