The May Visa Bulletin released a few weeks ago by the DOS proved once again to be depressing for those waiting in the long lines to immigrate legally. As an example, India EB2 moved forward by 4 days after moving forward 3 days in the April bulletin. Only EB3 Philippines saw any significant forward movement; 3 months. The DOS also predicted further retrogression of the EB1 category for both China and India. As expected, the USCIS indicated that it would accept I-485 filings based on the Final Action Date chart. Legislative action remains needed but, in this political climate, no reasonable person expects any relief.
