245(i) was a strange law. Everyone who was a beneficiary (direct or derivative) of a visa petition filed before May 1, 2001, became "grandfathered" under 245(i). It did not give anyone the right to apply for residence and did not shorten their wait for their PD to become current. 245(i) just gave you the choice of where to apply for residence once your priority date became current. If you were out of status when an immigrant visa finally became available, you could either return to your home country to apply at the embassy, or you could pay a $1000 fine and adjust status in the US. 245(i) just granted forgiveness for some of the acts that would have required you to consular process at home, like entering the US without inspection, overstaying your visa, working without permission, etc.
Mexico is at the top of the list of countries with the most immigration violators, along with the Central America countries who have suffered from civil wars and now gang violence. For countries not connected to the US by land, for decades it has been a virtual tie between Philippines and China for the most out of status people in the US. All of these were the main groups that benefited from 245(i). For example, look at cutoff dates for 1st (Jul 97) and 3rd (Jul 92) preferences. Many pinoys in the US out of status are in those categories. When their PD becomes current, and if qualified for 245(i), they will adjust status in the US without having to return to the Philippines.

CIS has never been good at keeping track of pending/approved petitions by country. Their software did not have that capability. There are may areas where CIS' technology is not as good as it should be. A common joke is that CIS does not hire enough foreign IT H1Bs!
Coming Soon again............... hoping for the best this time!
sana mag advance naman ang visa naten... let's pray everybody... God Bless...
praying for a movement this month
The June 2012 visa bulletin was released yesterday but then removed from the DOS website. AILA was able to copy the bulletin before it was removed. Here are our usual comments on the bulletin. However, please be sure to check back in to see if there are any changes to this bulletin..... no movement for phil f2b.
being a registered nurse,after you finished your BSN and get license then you can apply for NCLEX examination for nurses in the US but right now I think they are looking for the SSN before you can take the exam.
so better pala duon na mag exam sir....? I'm planning pa naman sana to take the exam....
much better if you have both license..................................................
July Visa Bulletin coming soon...............
