Dear Editor:
When the TN visas were established our law office processed many nurses from Canada. As soon as they entered we filed I-140's which were adjudicated in about 30 days. The I-485's were filed and, more important, employment authorization I-765's were filed for the spouses. These were adjudicated at the district offices within a week. And so husbands were able to be employed within about 60 days of arrival in the U.S. I-140 processing times became longer and longer. Now 6 months is normal, and 3 months for the I-765's. Prior to this, however, Sen. Spector (R) sponsored a bill requiring all foreign born nurses to obtain a Visa Screen Certificate. It took a year for various Govt. departments to form the exact regulations. Nurses then had to pay $320 to CGFN, of Philadelphia, to obtain the certificate. More sand in the machinery of immigration !! And so the flow of Canadian nurses has almost ceased. We wonder how the new I-140/485 process will 'gum up the works'. Perhaps INS will put Premium Processing to work for a fee and then use inexperienced officers to adjudicate so that they can send Requests For Further Evidence on the 14th day.
