On March 30, 2000, Carl Shusterman, Ellen Ma Lee and other immigration attorneys from the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) met with Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) to discuss the Immigration Services Backlog Reduction Act which will soon be introduced in the United States Senate.
“Very professional law firm. We had a difficult issue and Mr. Shusterman’s office got right onto the case and resolved the issue with USCIS. Because of their efforts, me and my family were able to get our Legal Permanent Residency card. My suggestion to those trying to obtain employment based card. Don’t look for money saving attorney. They will cost you lot more in long run. Go to a law firm which is professional and knowledgeable. It pays in the long term.” (More client reviews…)

Backlogs for processing labor certifications for employment-based green cards have grown too long which is why Senator Feinstein supports a Immigration Services Backlog Reduction Act
The DOL has submitted a plan to Congress. It details a significant reduction in LC backlogs, primarily due to the RIR process and to the LCA (Labor Condition Application) Fax-Back system. The DOL’s goal to further reduce the LC backlog by September 30, 2000 and to completely eliminate the backlog by September 30, 2001. The plan explains that new regulations will direct employers to submit LCA’s directly to the INS, and to convert regular LC’s to RIR LC’s without losing the priority date. Additionally, the plan states that “ETA will implement a new process in FY 2001 in which employers transmit permanent cases directly to the regional offices for processing”. It is anticipated that the new process will be an “attestation” where the employer checks boxes on a form stating that its efforts to recruit qualified U.S. workers for a particular job have been unsuccessful.
