To placate Stephen Miller, I am willing to forego my path to citizenship through EB-2. All I need is an EAD/green card so I can either start my own firm/travel freely. Never intended to immigrate.

Any recent Transfer cases on Premium with California Service Center? Looks like there are delays even getting the receipt no. generated. Docs reached on 1/20, no receipt yet. Anyone on the same boat?

My H1B amendment has been filed for a new client project and is currently awaiting adjudication. Can I travel back to India and get my H1B stamped on the earlier approved I797?
