US accepting applications for green cards

WASHINGTON, July 19: The US immigration service said on Tuesday it would immediately begin accepting applications for "green cards" from thousands of foreign professional workers.

Earlier this month, the US Citizenship and Immigration Services abruptly reversed an announcement issued in June offering expedited processing of green card petitions for skilled foreign professionals working under H1-B - reserved for skilled workers in computing, engineering and other special professions - visas. Thousands of H1-B visa holders scrambled to prepare green card applications for a July 1 deadline. .

However, on July 2, the US State Department announced that no applications would be accepted until the fall because of a large visa backlog. The announcement drew protests from applicants and Senator Charles Schumer, who called on the State Department to reverse itself.

"The public reaction to the July 2 announcement made it clear that the federal government's management of this process needs further review," USCIS Director Emilio Gonzalez said in a statement. reuters
