Support I140 EAD and AOS for Highly Skilled Immigrants

Work Authorization for Highly Skilled Americans with I140 Approval

Allow ?Pre-Register? where employees who have approved labor and I-140 would be able to gain benefits of adjustment of status even when the dates are not current. Skilled employees would be able to switch jobs, apply for EAD and advance parole and also not have to worry about the new job being the same or similar.

Make it possible to port the green-card petition from one employer to another so that applicants do not have to start with labor certification again should their employment end after they are quite far along in the process.

Even a visa is not immediately available, they should still be eligible to apply for EAD & Advance Parole (AP), and to file I-485.

We urge the members of the Congress and the President, to expedite in making this in to a law without letting any more time being wasted. Please don't let this die just because there is a wide disagreement between the Republicans and Democrats regarding the handling of the undocumented immigrants as the legal immigrants have been patiently waiting for many years all the time paying federal, state, local, medicare and social security taxes which potentially add up to several thousand dollars every year.
