The Truth About the H1b Visa

There are many misconceptions about the H1b Visa. People tend to confuse these legitimate workers with the undocumented workers (often referred to as illegals). They are very different.(EMAILWIRE.COM, June 17, 2009 ) It is a requirement for the US Citizen and Immigration Service that every foreign national to obtain a visa to legally work in the US borders. The H1B Visa is the most sought after official visa by people from all over the world wishing to temporarily relocate to live and work in the US – both professionals and students. This visa usually has a 6-year validity period and allows people to be employed by different employers.This ‘dream come true visa’ as seen by many seeking after it, was introduced by the United States Government to help the International Students as well as International Professionals, from all niches in the globe, secure an opportunity to live and at the same time work within the US borders.The greatest advantage of bearing this visa is that it bears dual intent meaning that you can still have it, apply and wait for a Green Card for permanent residency.To secure this visa, you have to find a H1B Sponsorship Job. After evaluation of foreign educational credentials by a foreign credential evaluation firm such aswww.TheDegreePeople.com, your prospective employer files your H1B visa application with the Immigration Bureau. This means that individuals cannot apply for this visa, it remains at the discretion of the Sponsoring Company or Employer. In other words you must have a sponsor and only the sponsor applies.To qualify for this visa, you have to have a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree equivalency (from your country) or 12 years professional experience in your field. Another alternative is a hybrid of the two which entail a mix of higher education such as diploma equivalency mixing education and work experience. For example if you can combine two years of university level education with 6 years professional experience in the field to show an equivalency to a US bachelor’s degree. This can only be done by a credential evaluation agency with a professor with the proper credentials. Sheila Danzig, Executive Director of Career Consulting International a foreign credential evaluation agency stated, “It is very important to know that your education or education and work experience combination match the job offer. We often see people whose education does not match the job description and that simply won’t be approved by the Immigration Service.”The ‘specialty occupations’ that make people qualify for the visa include: Accounting, Advertising, Banking, Business, Computing, Engineering (all types), Finance, HealthCare/Medical, IT, Lawyers, Legal, Management and Hospitality, Marketing, Networking, PR, Recruiting, Teaching and Telecoms among others.Various reasons encourage Sponsoring companies or Employers to hire foreign national and seek H1B visas for them. These reasons include: • These workers help in boosting the US economy in diverse ways while bettering their future. • Help fill gaping holes in employment where there are shortages of highly skilled professionals in the field. Even now, during a recession, certain jobs need workers who of higher skill than are in our workforce. • They possess global competitive advantage by bringing cultural diversity into the workplaces. • They have strong work ethics as well as a great enthusiasm to work.For students who qualify for these visas, transcript evaluation has to be performed so as to ensure that they are qualified students seeking further education (Diplomas, Bachelors or Masters) as they seek a livelihood while working at the same time.]]>

Raising the H1b Cap Will Boost the Economy

Raising the H1b Cap will not take jobs from Americans, it will boost the economy according to two US Heritage Foundation Scholars.(EMAILWIRE.COM, April 09, 2009 ) Raising the H1b Cap Will Boost the Economy.Career Consulting International (CCI), a foreign credential evaluation agency, supports two US Heritage Foundation Scholars, Jena Baker McNeill and Diem Nguyenare, who are asking the Obama administration and Congress to increase the cap of H-1B work visas, stating that such a move would help stimulate economic growth and generate tax revenue.“Raising the cap would not steal American jobs, as is being believed in a section in the US,” stated Sheila Danzig, Executive Director of CCI,www.TheDegreePeople.com.Such a measure would, in fact, stimulate economic growth and generate the much needed tax revenue claim Baker McNeill and Nguven.Career Consulting International www.thedegreepeople.com work with firms and H1b applicants to show how their academic credentials and foreign education are equivalent to US education and degrees.This degree evaluation is required as part of their USCIS filing.“Raising H-1B caps will provide businesses the professionals and skills they need to develop their business when ready,” wrote Baker McNeill and Nguyen.Baker McNeill is a Policy Analyst for Homeland Security and Nguyen is a Research Assistant in the Douglas and Sarah Allison Centre for Foreign Policy Studies at The Heritage Foundation.“Raise the cap back to 195,000 visas per year. Make the cap flexible. As the US economy fluctuates through its business cycles, the demand for H-1B visas will rise and fall. Congress should establish a quota that, if met, automatically increases for the next year. In addition, unused visas should be recaptured for the next fiscal year,” the two told Congress.They claim that expanding the H-1B visa back to 195,000 would provide 2 billion dollars of tax revenue each year, a beneficial step in the direction of reducing fiscal deficit.They also noted that H-1B workers are some of the brightest in the world and this will insure that they work in the US for American businesses which will only help the economy.]]>

H1B Visas, Foreign Credential Evaluations Still Available: April 10, 2009

For Two Years the H1b Visa Cap filled on April 1, the day it opened with triple the applications as spots open. This year the cap remains unfilled.(EMAILWIRE.COM, April 10, 2009 ) H1B Visas, Foreign Credential Evaluations Still Available: April 10, 2009The USCIS has just released a statement that the H1B Visa caps for Fiscal Year 2010 have not yet been filled. This means that anyone with the needed foreign academic credentials who has their paperwork submitted before the cap is filled may still receive an H1B visa this year!Each year, the USCIS offers 65,000 H1B Visas to foreign professionals holding at least a Bachelor’s Degree. In addition, the agency reserves 20,000 H1B Visas for professionals whose academic credentials are at least equal to a U.S. Master’s Degree. In recent years, these visas have been quickly issued to workers eager to work in the United States. Most are sponsored by large companies.Not surprisingly, the visa cap has been slower to fill this year because of the U.S. economic recession. Businesses have been slower to hire workers with foreign degrees because of the country’s high unemployment rates. Despite this, however, certain positions require academic credentials that U.S. workers just don’t have. If professionals from other countries aren’t hired to meet these demands, the jobs are not filled. H1B visas don’t take jobs away from American citizens. Instead, they are used to help companies fill needed positions when no workers from this country are available to be hired.Executive Director Sheila Danzig of Career Consulting International (CCI), a prominent foreign credential evaluation service, reports that this year’s visa season has been somewhat slower than anticipated. “We are still receiving plenty of applications for foreign degree evaluations, but large companies are not processing as many H1B visas as they have in previous years. To some extent this maybe a result of the government cracking down on fraud in the system.”As a result, the professionals at CCI are still ready to respond to urgent requests for foreign credential evaluations.

Employers can also get more information about whether a prospective employee’s educational credentials will meet the USCIS requirements for an H1B visa.To date, the USCIS has not released figures concerning the number of visas that are still available. The recent press release stated only that if enough petitions are received to fill meet the caps, that agency will release an advisory that the cap was met as of the date the maximum number of petitions are received.Don’t make the mistake of delaying, however, or hoping that the USCIS caps will wait for your credentials evaluation to be completed. Get it done as quickly as possible so that the cap isn’t filled before your petition is submitted. No one who applies after the cap date will be approved, and no one knows when the cap date will occur. Don’t take a chance – start the academic credentials evaluation process as soon as possible. Today isn’t too late, but tomorrow may be!]]>

H1b Cap Still Not Filled: Academic Credentials Evaluations for H1B Visa Transfers

While the H1b Cap is well behind last years pace. H1B visa new, renewal and transfer applications will still being accepted for Fiscal Year 2010. A good evaluation can help with even the most complex academic credential evaluations.(EMAILWIRE.COM, April 13, 2009 ) Academic Credentials Evaluations for H1B Visa TransfersThe most recent report issued by United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) indicates that only 42,000 H1B Visa petitions have been received as of April 9, 2009. On that date, immigration authorities released statements that petitions would continue to be accepted until the cap of 65,000 petitions had been received by their office. Additionally, USCIS officials will continue to allow persons currently holding H1B visas to apply for renewals and transfers to other sponsoring companies during this time. Unlike citizens or permanent residents, workers who reside in the United States on H1B visas must apply for government approval of their request to transfer their work visa to another approved job position.Depending on the time frame and the job requirements, workers may have to have their educational credentials re-evaluated before the USCIS will consider the petition to transfer or renew their visa. Sometimes these credential evaluationsmay be very straightforward and easy to process. Others are very complex and require expert opinions or proof of work experience.If you currently hold an H1B visa and are planning to transfer jobs, consult an immigration attorney to determine whether your academic credentials need to be re-evaluated before you apply for the transfer. If you do require a credentials evaluation, the cost and complexity of the evaluation will depend on several factors.Are you applying for an identical position with another company? If your education is identical to the requirements listed on your H1B Visa, you will probably have little difficulty. For example, if your employer requires a Bachelor of Science Degree in Computer Science, and you hold a four-year Bachelor of Science Degree in Computer Science, you will probably only need a short credentials evaluation called a document evaluation.If, however, you have a three-year degree, or if your degree certificate does not specify a major in computer science, you may have to show proof of work experience to equal the needed educational credentials. Credential evaluation services such as Career Consulting International (CCI), owned and managed by Executive Director Sheila Danzig, specialize in complex evaluations involving three-year degrees and work experience evaluations. If you need your academic credentials re-evaluated for visa application or transfer, visit CCI at www.thedegreepeople.com. Even if you receive a Request for Evidence (RFE) or Denial from the USCIS, their team of experts and professional evaluators is willing to examine your documents without charge to see if they can help. For more information, call their toll-free assistance line at 1-800-771-4723 today.Choosing a good attorney and a reputable credential evaluation service may be the difference between acceptance and denial of your H1B visa application. Rely on experts you know you can trust. CCI’s credential evaluations have an approval rate of greater than 90 percent. Can you really afford not to choose them?]]>

Academic Credentials Evaluations: Which one should you Choose?

Many people with foreign degrees or diplomas require academic credentials evaluations to show that their education is equivalent to a U.S. diploma or degree. Review the difference between a document evaluation and a course-by-course evaluation here. (EMAILWIRE.COM, April 15, 2009 ) Academic Credentials Evaluations: Which one should you Choose?Most people who complete their education outside the United States need academic credentials evaluations to show that their degrees or diplomas are equivalent to accredited U.S. education. Many countries have different requirements, even for high school graduation. Therefore, this is often the only way universities and employers can be sure that a person’s diploma meets U.S. requirements.Most credential evaluation services offer several different types of credentials evaluations. The two kinds of evaluations needed by most people are document evaluations and course-by-course evaluations. But how can people tell which kind of evaluation they should order? Document evaluations are generally used by employers to confirm that an individual’s foreign degree or diploma is actually the equivalent of an accredited U.S. degree. For example, many countries only require 10 or 11 years of high school instead of the 12 required by a U.S. high school. Therefore, if a job requires graduation from high school, a person with a foreign high school diploma must show that his or her education is equivalent to U.S high school graduation.High school diplomas almost always require only document evaluations if they are being used for employment. Similarly, most of the time a four-year college degree from another country usually requires only a document evaluation.If the job position requires special skills or education, though, the employer may require a course-by-course evaluation to prove that the person’s academic credentials meet the skills and knowledge levels required for the job. Likewise, if a person is planning to apply to a United States college or university, the university will in nearly all cases require a course-by-course academic credentials evaluation. Credential evaluation services can be costly. Some credential evaluation agencies charge as much as $100 for a document evaluation. Many people who are searching for jobs don’t have extra money to spend. Occasionally, a concerned employer might pay for or even reimburse the cost of these evaluations, so it never hurts to ask. Career Consulting International, a foreign credential evaluation service owned and managed by Professor Sheila Danzig (see www.thedegreepeople.com), always guarantees that its clients will receive the lowest price for a credentials evaluation. Furthermore, she recognizes that many people often start by requesting document evaluations, unaware that they may need a more complicated evaluation.Instead of charging twice, CCI’s policy is to upgrade a person’s evaluation if needed. The cost of the upgrade is only the difference in price between the original document evaluation and the course-by-course evaluation plus copies and postage.If you have questions, call a credential evaluation service to ask before ordering. If you do order, check to make sure that the agency will upgrade the evaluation if necessary. Don’t pay more than you need to for your evaluation, but don’t find yourself paying twice for an evaluation because the agency charged for a second evaluation when you upgraded.]]>

H1b Visa and I140 Visa Denials, RFE’s … Based on Education

Workers applying for temporary or permanent visas in the United States sometimes receive RFEs or denials. Career Consulting International offers free pre-evaluation services to these clients, their attorneys and their employers.(EMAILWIRE.COM, April 21, 2009 ) Fort Lauderdale, FL – You’ve gathered all your materials together – degree, mark sheets or transcripts, identification, and paid the fee for your foreign credential evaluation. When you receive it, you submit it to USCIS – and wait, hoping that you’ll get an approval notice in the mail soon. Instead, when you open the mail, you find a Request for Information (RFE). Or worse, still, you find yourself with a Denial in hand. What do you do next?If you’ve gotten a denial or RFE, this may be a result of a problem with your sponsor’s paperwork or ability to pay your salary. In this case, an attorney may be able to help correct the paperwork or demonstrate the corporation’s ability to pay. Alternatively, you may have received an RFE or denial because of your academic credentials evaluation. Possibly the USCIS wanted more evidence that your Bachelor Degree was equal to a U.S. Bachelor Degree, or they could not determine that the university you attended was accredited in your home country. In this case, you may need a more extensive foreign credentials evaluation, or an expert opinion letter to help get your case approved.Career Consulting International (CCI), a credential evaluation service owned and operated by Sheila Danzig, has developed a special website, www.ccifree.com, for people with foreign degrees who have received an RFE or denial. While that was great info about our clients getting RFE’s / Denials, it is best not even to bring that up as it can be confusing.The vast majority of the education RFE’s and Denials are for the I140 visa and the #1 reason for the denial is for combining education. Certain Employment based Visa’s like EB-2 do not allow for combining at all. EB-3 allows for it, but only if it is so stated on the labor certificate.At www.ccifree.com, people who have received these notices from the USCIS can submit a brief form, including their academic credentials and their notice without charge. An expert evaluator will then examine the education credentials and the notice to determine what information USCIS might require to approve the case. A company representative will then contact the client and explain what assistance CCI can offer. In some cases there is nothing that can be done. In most cases it is an uphill battle because they have already received an RFE or Denial. “It is best when we do the evaluation in the first place,” said Danzig. “But we have good success even after a denial in many cases. We have one eye on the USCIS requirements and one eye on the education documents. We know when you can combine and when you can’t. We have extensive reference material for many of the unusual degrees such as the 3 year bachelor’s degree, Chartered Accountancy (CA), AIME, AIMETE, ICAI, ICWAI, and others. Because degrees from other countries can be very different from ours reference materials and original research are often needed to explain the equivalencies.”In addition attorneys and employers who are not certain whether their clients have the necessary education credentials, or who would like advice about what kind of evaluation their clients may need are also encouraged to visitwww.ccifree.com. CCI offers free pre-evaluations to attorneys and employers assisting clients with first-time visa applications or with RFEs or denials.Many people don’t hear about this service until it’s almost too late, so they submit their academic credentials with very tight deadlines. In this case, clients are encouraged to call after submitting the request, so that evaluators can be made aware that their deadline for answering the USCIS is very near. Otherwise, CCI’s goal is a 2 business day turnaround time for these pre-evaluations, though most are completed within 24 hours.]]>

H1B Visa Workers Needed Because Not Enough US Workers Make the Grade

H1B visa workers are needed because of the shortage of U.S. workers with the qualifications for specialty jobs. Foreign degree evaluations by agencies such as Career Consulting International ensure that these workers have the needed academic credentials.(EMAILWIRE.COM, April 29, 2009 ) Why are major US corporations hiring foreign workers and sponsoring their entry into the country with H1B visas? How can American companies justify hiring professionals from other countries and importing them into the country to take American jobs? The answer, as seen by industry giants such as Microsoft Corporation, is startling – and painful – in its simplicity. U.S. workers just don’t make the grade. This is the argument that the major business organizations still hiring H1B workers for fiscal year 2010 are making. They claim that no US professionals can be found who have the necessary skills to perform the work required.In recent years, United States universities have seen fewer American students enrolling in computer, mathematics and science degree programs. These programs, however, continue to be popular with students from other countries.Unfortunately, many of these students are returning to their home countries to take high-paying positions in technology-related businesses and industries. This problem is even more evident at the graduate degree level. Many students receiveforeign degrees from undergraduate programs in their home countries, and then enter the United States to take advantage of the educational excellence offered by top-ranking graduate degree programs. Then they return home.April 29, Sunrise Florida Business organizations such as Microsoft Corporation hire workers with foreign degrees to work in the United States with temporary work visas known as H1B visas. To be eligible for an H1B visa, the worker must show the USCIS that his or her foreign degree is the U.S. equivalency of a bachelor degree or higher.This isn’t always as easy as it might seem. Many graduates from colleges in India, for example, attend three-year undergraduate programs to obtain their Bachelor Degree. Usually, these workers also have to show three years of work experience to receive the educational equivalency of a four-year bachelor degree.Evaluating foreign education to determine whether these academic credentialsare the equivalent of a U.S. bachelor degree is often a complicated process. It requires experts who are familiar with the vast array of degree programs and education systems worldwide. Most foreign credential evaluation services, including Career Consulting International (CCI), also specialize in a particular area of academic credentials evaluations.While almost any agency can help with a simple evaluation, however, Career Consulting International specializes in complex evaluations involving three-year degrees and other difficult cases. CCI even offers free pre-evaluations to workers who have received an RFE or denial at www.ccifree.com.]]>

Top Grades and U.S. Academic Credentials Don’t Keep Talented non-residents from Returning Home.

Thousands of talented students enter the US to attend our top universities. These would be assets to our workforce but many go back to their home country, denying the US some of the top minds in the world.(EMAILWIRE.COM, March 25, 2009 ) Thousands of people enter the United States each year on temporary education visas to earn a college degree. Many of them try to stay, but restrictive immigration policies prevent some graduates, family members, or spouses from remaining in this country. After getting their academic credentials from prestigious universities such as Stanford or Harvard, they return to their home countries.Sometimes, the college graduate wishes to stay, but his or her spouse or significant other may have earned a degree from their home country before entering the U.S. Then, a credential evaluation service must complete an education evaluation stating whether the foreign degree is equivalent to a degree from a university in this country. Career Consulting International (CCI) offers educational credential evaluation services, and a number of similar agencies offer the same services.Unfortunately, many people who want to immigrate to this country choose agencies that may or may not be fully familiar with complex educational evaluation. CCI often receives referrals from many people with three-year degrees who are hoping to have their degree evaluated as being equivalent to a U.S. Bachelor Degree. For this reason, Professors John Kersey and Sheila Danzigspent several years researching the complexities of demonstrating these diploma equivalencies.CCI’s success rate with 3-year degrees is very high, with far more approvals than not. Many of the clients referred to CCI are seeking a degree equivalency after receiving an RFE or denial, and have had an educational evaluation completed by a previous agency in the past. For more information about Career Consulting International, and the agency’s credential evaluation services, visitwww.thedegreepeople.com or call 1-800-771-4723.Frequently, however, graduates whose family members and significant others do have academic credentials that would allow them to obtain E3 or other work visas and remain in the United States. Despite this, many decide to return to their home countries. Many of these persons have strong family ties, and prefer to return home to marry and raise their children.Additionally, a number of other foreign students who graduate from American colleges are being offered excellent job opportunities in their home countries. Their education and knowledge allows them to obtain high-level positions rather than the junior positions they might receive if they remained in the United States. The rising unemployment rate in the US has been breeding a “hire Americans only” attitude thus losing the people who would fill these jobs where there are no Americans with the skills to fill the jobs particularly in fields like programming. This has resulted in many technological advances in countries such as China and India. With the current economic recession, businesses are having a difficult time justifying approaches such as offering bonuses to foreign students to immigrate to the United States and continue to work. Although they are working to find other ways to encourage students who have earned their academic credentials in the U.S. to remain in the country, some graduates continue to leave, seeking opportunities that just aren’t here right now. With the end of the recession nowhere in sight, it’s impossible to see how this will turn out.]]>

Which Companies Are Surviving the Recession?

work visas (H1B). It’s usually a busy time for immigration attorneys and many companies who sponsor persons with foreign degrees to work in the U.S. on temporary visas. The global recession, however, has given people cause to wonder just how this will affect employment based visas. The answer is – yes, there is a slow down here to.Many companies are cautious about determining how many H1B to sponsor this year.  Last year there were 3 filings for each available visa. The cap filled virtually the day filings began, and many firms did not get all the employees they needed.  This year things look different.H1B jobs are only available when no US residents can fill the job.  Most of the jobs are high tech IT jobs where there is still a big demand and limited supply of talented workers. But there is a misunderstanding in the country that these foreign workers are taking jobs from Americans. While this is not the case, firms are feeling uncomfortable hiring non-US workers.Despite this slowdown, the professionals at Career Consulting International (CCI) have stopped wondering how their business will go this “season”. The busy season which normally starts in mid-March, was off to an early start. Apparently, while the total pool of applicants maybe smaller this year, CCI is getting a bigger share of that pool. CCI’s Executive Director Sheila Danzig released a statement to her employees the revenues for the last week in February was up 58 percent compared to the same time period in February 2008. CCI, found on the Internet at “http://www.TheDegreePeople.com“, specializes in evaluating foreign degrees and diplomas for their U.S.equivalencies. People who attend high school or college in other countries are usually required by universities and employers to have their degree evaluated for the U.S. educational equivalency by a professional evaluation agency.Rush fees often account for a substantial part of the visa season’s profit, but the opening filing date is weeks away, so most clients appear to be getting their orders in well in advance, to save on rush fees in late March and early April. OneHR executive explained, “Why should I wait longer so I can pay more money later?”When asked about the number of larger clients (corporations, IT firms, and attorneys with large numbers of H1B visas to process), Director of Operations Marian Aronson-Finnk offered a glimpse at the busyness unfolding in her work week: “I am not surprised by the number of bulk applications we have processed as of this date,” she shared. “We have built many relationships over the years. Our clients return to us for our personal service, fast turn-around time and lowest-price-guarantee policy.”CCI believes that is the reason the recession has not caught up with them yet. Customer service liaison Jim Howell was asked whether he’s overwhelmed yet by the number of calls coming in. Howell just smiled and responded, “Our team’s job is to help people and give them the best support and advice possible, one at a time, and that’s what we are continuing to do.  Our trained, experienced support staff is ready to help.” For more information about Career Consulting International’s bulk application prices, visit  “http://www.thedegreepeople.com/cciapp_bulk.html” or call the toll-free number at 1.800.771.4723.

International Education Expert Supports Visa Processing Speedup as a Solution to the American Mortgage Crisis

TheDegreePeople.com and an expert on the characteristics and demographics of persons seeking foreign diploma evaluations for EB-2 and EB-3 visas to the United States, advocates significantly speeding up the processing of applications for permanent residency from those holding the visas.Sunrise, FL – As the American mortgage crisis continues to grow with each passing month, a new proposal from the educational sector has the potential to significantly relieve America’s current housing problem while encouraging billions of dollars in economic growth. Ms. Sheila Danzig, director of a foreign degree evaluation agency, TheDegreePeople.com and an expert on the characteristics and demographics of persons seeking foreign diploma evaluations for EB-2 and EB-3 visas to the United States, advocates significantly speeding up the processing of applications for permanent residency from those holding the visas.“After careful analysis, I’ve decided to support a proposal that was first presented on the Immigration Voice internet chat board,” says Ms. Danzig, whose firm performs foreign diploma evaluations and foreign degree evaluations. “EB-2 and EB-3 visa holders have already been living in the U.S. for more than five years. They all have professional degrees and many have a master’s or a Ph.D. None are taking a job away from Americans, because the visas are issued precisely when no U.S. citizens are available for these jobs. They make a very good income, but they’re afraid to buy a house while their green card status remains in limbo due to a tremendous backlog.”The average income earned by workers holding EB visas is $65,000 – $135,000 yearly, notes Ms. Danzig. The majority of these individuals have good or excellent credit ratings and secure incomes. They are highly motivated to purchase homes and settle in family-friendly neighborhoods. However, they remain in limbo while they wait for the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services to approve their green card applications – sometimes up to a seven year wait. Mortgage companies and banks rarely approve home loans for families without permanent residency.Currently, approximately 800,000 wage earners wait to see whether they will be permitted to remain in the United States. More than 200,000 immigration visanumbers have been lost as workers wait for their application to be processed, which has resulted in millions of lost dollars for the economy, notes Ms. Danzig.“Suppose half of these persons wish to purchase a home. If they were permitted to make a 20 percent down payment on a private home (and the average cost of a home in the U.S. today is approximately $200,000), this would result in a net financial gain of $1.6 billion immediately for American banks, not to mention improving the dismal real estate market in many areas of the country.”Accordingly, Career Consulting International, Ms. Danzig’s foreign credential evaluation agency, has started a petition drive at http://www.thedegreepeople.com/eb-petition.html to speed up visa processing for EB-2 and EB-3 visa holders who are ready to purchase a home now.“Immigrants are highly motivated to succeed and make themselves part of the culture that welcomes them to remain in their country,” says Ms. Danzig. “I remember when my father got his citizenship. I was about eight years old, and he picked me up and danced me around the room, he was so happy. Offer your support for a solution that works for hard-working immigrants as well as the U.S. economy today. These stable, risk-free mortgages will help to reverse the downward spiral into which our housing market has slumped and help it to soar upward again.”For more information about foreign credential evaluation services or to sign the petition to support this proposal, go to http://www.thedegreepeople.com/eb-petition.html.]]>
