Employment Based Green Card Petition ApprovedPublished: Aug 18, 2008 By: Robert D. Kolken Source: My Source
Our client is a U. S. corporation. Seven years ago it needed to fill the position of janitor. No U. S. workers were available. It located an Indian citizen without status in the U. S. and offered him the job. It applied for labor certification. It took the U. S. Department of Labor six years to certify the position.
The company was then able to petition the De-partment of Homeland Security for permission to hire the worker. After responding to two Requests for Additional Evidence, the petition was approved. Unfortunately, visas are not currently available in the preference category so that the green card application can not be approved at this time. Hopefully, visas will be available at the start of the fiscal year on October 1, 2008.
Fortunately, the employer kept the position open to the employee for all these years. I wonder who was sweeping the floors for the last seven years while the U. S. Government was delaying adjudication.
