MU Law Analysis

The EB dates stayed more or less static from the prior month, although India EB-2 advanced by 2 months, which should continue to allow additional long-delayed Indian nationals to apply for their green cards.  India EB-2s Dates of Filing also progressed to December 1, 2014.  All other Indian and Chinese EB-1, 2 and 3 dates remained as they were in April.

The news remained positive for Philippines and Worldwide EB-3, where dates held at Current.
