What Matters (Chinese in America) ?
The State Department published the visa bulletin for April 2008, in which vast amount of visa numbers are assigned to Indian born EB3 applicants. This is a big slap on the face to Chinese immigrants, mostly skilled high tech workers with advanced degrees who are in EB2 category. The positive side of the incident serves as a wake up call to Chinese immigrants community. Within 24 hours, an advocacy group Legal Immigrant Association (LIA) received more than $30,000 donations to be paid on lobbying effort and possible law suit against the State Department as the April bulletin violated the fair principle mandated by SECTION 202(5) RULES FOR EMPLOYMENT-BASED IMMIGRANTS. This may be a history making, pivoting moment in the history of Chinese immigrants.
