The State Department has been warning about this. It's dealing with an unexpectedly large number of green card applications in the EB-2 category by retrogressing the processing dates back to January 1, 2009 effective July 1st. That means those of you non-Indians and non-Chinese with approved PERMS or who are otherwise ready to file I-140s, better do so in the next few weeks or you could be waiting awhile.
