San Jose, CA : Shah Peerally, Owner and President of the California-based law firm started the petition to support the rights of EB2 and EB3 visa holders working in the United States. Thousands of people from India and China are waiting for their permanent residence based on employment categories 2 (EB 2) and (EB3). Visa Holders waiting for permanent residency from India are especially backlogged and have the longest waiting time of any other country.
In the petition, Peerally addresses critical points including that fact that most employees waiting for their Green Cards work under Science, Technology, Mathematics and Engineering, which are crucial fields that contribute immensely to the US economy. He mentions other benefits of reducing the waiting time to include preventing employee abuses and more job creation from entrepreneurs interested in investing in the United States. Peerally states that the current process and waiting period is unfair to workers and against principles of equality dictated by the U.S. Constitution. The firm is asking for support in signing the petition to help change these unfair practices.
