A Disclaimer:  I know this is a hot button issue, so I ask that you please contact your immigration lawyer related to the specifics of your case before taking (or choosing not to take) any course of action.  This blog is for general information and news and nothing herein should be construed as legal advice.
The consensus seems to be that regardless of what the DOS and/or CIS may or may not do with the July visa bulletin, those who are eligible should file their I-485 applications in July for a couple of reasons:  (1) the numbers may not retrogress in which case it would be a shame to lose the opportunity to file; and (2) even if the numbers become unavailable, there is almost guaranteed to be a lawsuit against the agencies for which remedies may only be available for those who actually filed and whose cases were rejected.

We should have more official news early next week and will keep you posted.
