How to Contact the Government to Insist it Honor the Department of State’s original October Visa Bulletin published 9/9/15
September 28, 2015 | Written by Laura J. Mazel
Employers, employees and their immigration counsel are understandably outraged with Department of State’s publishing a Revised Visa Bulletin last Friday which rolled back visa dates to file Applications to Adjust Status by as much as two years. This is particularly frustrating after they relied on the Department of State’s October Visa Bulletin published 9/9/15 and undertook significant steps to prepare to file Adjustment of Status cases later this week on October 1.
Employers and employees may wish contact the government and insist that anything less than honoring the Department of State’s October Visa Bulletin published 9/9/15 is simply…not honorable. Here’s how:
- Use the Subject Line: “Honor the October Visa Bulletin published 9/9/15” and express your outrage after relying on the Visa Bulletin published 9/9/15 to file your case this week and incurring legal and related costs.
- Insist that the Department of State, and USCIS, honor the Visa Bulletin published 9/9/15.
- Tell your story.

The government must be held accountable for its sudden change-up. We aren’t playing baseball. The government must be removed from the pitcher’s mound. Further background on the government’s action last Friday is found in our 9/25 posting.
