The DOS may revise its July visa bulletin and make all or some of the EB categories unavailable for July as early as Monday or Tuesday of next week. Should this occur, the literally thousands of people who are trying to immigrate LEGALLY will have been taken for a ride. When the July visa bulletin came out mid-June, competent immigration lawyers were advising their clients to get their medical examinations, passport photos and questionnaires ready to proceed and file in a timely manner (before the end of July).
Should the CIS reject those cases that will be filed based on the DOS Visa Bulletin (which according to the existing regulations and memos they should accept) lawsuits will be filed against the agencies, but how will that help those who “played by the rules”? They can get back in line. This system is a miserable failure.
Those whose cases are rejected may be able to join a class-action that may be filed by AILF if cases end up being rejected if and when the State Department amends its July visa bulletin. Stay tuned.
