Making Data More Accessible

Make Immigration process transparent

HI !! I think government should make immigration process transparent. I don't understand why a super power like US would have an immigration system in which you wouldn't know when you will get your case processed. One month we receive a newsletter saying that EB2 and EB3 categories are current for India and the next month it goes back 4-5 years or becomes unavailable for the rest of the year. Why can't we have a transparent system where USCIS would give details - these are the total number of greencards we can give this particular year and this many applications we received !! You are at number X so you have to wait for Y number of days before you can get your particular stage processed (be it Labor, I-140 or 485). The status on your case on USCIS's website is also not detailed. It says - we have received your case and it's pending. It would really help if we can get something more in detail from USCIS. Thanks !

    this among other things would greatly help those who are trying to live here legally. i'm sure a huge percentage of illegal aliens are here because they tried to immigrate but never got an adequate response.

    I agree with bankim.mehta.

    Bradley, you are not entirely correct. Immigrants migrate illegally to this country because they are simply denied a visa by the US consulate in their country of origin. In Mexico for example, they have to meet certain economical criteria so they do not pose a burden to the US. The poor have no other option but to migrate illegally. It's not that there is a "lack" of response, it's more that they are simply denied.
