Children's Art Project: Two Extra Weeks to Submit Artwork

This past June, Director Mayorkas introduced the "We Are America" National Children’s Art Project in collaboration with organizations serving immigrants. The deadline for the National Children’s Art Project was recently extended to August 30, 2010.

We encourage children across the United States to submit artwork in response to the following: "People have come from all over the world to become Americans. Why does that make us great?"

The artwork will be displayed in USCIS offices around the country and is also on display in our online photo gallery. For more information please visit www.uscis.gov/childrensartproject.

Eb2-India had a significant Priority Date move until 2006, now USCIS should move EB3-India that is logical, people like us are here for past 11 years, stucked in EB3-India, Why we should all wait for Eb2-India to be current, right now Eb2-India have some relief let that relief come to EB3-India too. The next spill over should be for EB3-India, Please make the Priority Date move in the next bulletin to Year 2005 to EB-3 India, or else allow us who are here for 10 years to file EAD, dont toruture us enough is enough.

Wow. THIS is what USCIS is spending its time and resources on, when millions of legal immigrants are stuck in backlogged queues.

Are we able to capture all the visa number for YR 2010? I hope we don't waste any spillover. Everyone thought that September 2010 would make th EB2-I to Jan 2007.

Why the movement is not that fast? Also a Special note as most of the EB2 Application in pending state is either reviewed or rejected. If they are reviewed they are awaiting for Visa numbers.

Why Don't USCIS Accept new applications for example until 2008 December to get more people to file the change of status? This way you can keep Adjudication process Alive for All the Employment category.

Kindly do the needful.

So, while a simple H-1 extension gets stuck in "Initial Review" for months, USCIS workers are busy judging drawing competitions? This is what we are paying for?

I trust they correct the problem of K4 status, to avoid aging out, why a K2 can adjust status while K4 cant. Legally, K4 parent was married to an american, while K2 parent is only a fiance. I also hope the processing of petition will be faster now, considering the fees paid were heavy in our pocket.

Children are full of imagination which is not unexpected, try to give freedom to them to be oblivious to it through painting, drawing or whatever. This will provide an opportunity for them to work even though they did not realize it. Thanks. ~ Lukisan

i approve of this educational technique. what does a child really gain from video games?

To the video game comments - video games are a great way to get kids interested in art--especially if we get them involved in the development of games at an early age. Kids love the idea of creating video games and it has helped get my daughter more interested in drawing as she helps me make games that she is designing. She is also learning to create digital art and develop her critical thinking skills. Parents have always dismissed the interests of kids rather than encourage them. My parents did the same thing and their parents did the same thing to them.
