Family-Sponsored Visa Categories Massively Retrogress

The January 2011 Visa Bulletin was issued this week showing significantly retrogressed cut-off dates for family-sponsored preference categories.  By way of example, the family sponsored preference 2A category (spouse and children of Lawful Permanent Residents) retrogressed from August 1, 2010 to January 1, 2008.  This development came not even a week after the Dream Act was tabled by the lawmakers.  This was not a banner week for immigrants.
