Children's Art Project: "We Are America"

Are your children between 5 to 12 years old and like to draw, paint or create collages? If so, USCIS is hosting a children’s art project themed "We Are America." We are asking children to share their ideas on the following question: "People have come from all over the world to become Americans. Why does that make us great?"

We will display submissions in USCIS offices across the country and will recognize participants during the 2010 celebration of the "September 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance."

The deadline to submit artwork is August 16 so tell your little artists to get out the crayons, paint and markers and start drawing.

For full details on the project, please visit the Children’s Art Project page.

If any one goes thru Visa Bulletin for July 2010 carefully, they will find in Item F of the document that DOS has conservatively estimated that they would clear EB-2 India upto March or April 2006. Their estimation is based upon availability of 16000+ visas approximately. They have also estimated that they would clear EB-3 India upto Feb 2002.

And if you look at the Visa Bulletin from a year ago, they said that they expected to move Worldwide EB3 up to the Spring of 2006 by October 1, 2009. The problem was that the CIS unleashed an unexpected demand for visas from their previously unreported AOS cases pending at district offices. There are still more than 100,000 unclassified EB AOS cases in the CIS inventory. No one, not the State Department and certainly not the CIS, knows how those shake out in terms of preference, priority date and country of charge.

Why are you playing with lifes of lot of Worthy tax paying Legal immigrants??

"Why are you playing with lifes of lot of Worthy tax paying Legal immigrants??"

Are you implying that it is ok to play with the lifes of people who don't pay taxes?
Are they somehow "unworthy"?
A rather slippery slope you got on here...

He meant that people that pay taxes should be treated with priority over the people who don;t pay taxes. He really does not care if you play with people lives that don't pay taxes. I guess that is up to IRS and all. What does taxes have to do with anything anyway?

"The People who do not pay taxes came here Illegally."
Wrong. Home makers also don't pay taxes. Or students...

"entering United States Illegally is a CRIME full stop"
Hmm, no, it isn't. Learn to read and understand the laws.
It is against the immigration law, but it is not a crime. Full stop...

And you didn't answer my question in the first place: Are you implying that it is ok to play with the lifes of people who don't pay taxes?

It does not say anywhere in the rules that whether the children on H4 status can participate in this.

Most of the comments here are not related to the Art Project. I am frustrated too but - please - let's take the frustrations out on the "Frustrations Page".

USCIS Blog Team: Can you start two permanent sections on The Beacon:

(1) Vent out your frustrations
(2) Share a joke

Then frustrations will be out and a good laugh can fill in.

I am happy to read the deadline extended until August 30, 2010. So it means that there's enough time for kids to create their artwork. Hopefully this event a success!

This is a good way to instill nationalism in the hearts and minds of the children, something they enjoy most while honing their artistic talents.

When will it be held again? This kind of art project will be great for our children. Hopefully it will be held again for this year. Thank you!

Any followup on the USCIS children’s art project? Would be good to see what the winning works looked like. - Martin
