sudden backlog reduction efforts by Citizenship and Immigration
Services Offices during the past month have resulted in the use of
almost 60,000 Employment numbers. As a result of this unexpected action
it has been necessary to make immediate adjustments to several
previously announced cut-off dates.  All Citizenship and Immigration
Services Offices have been notified of the following: 


Effective Monday July 2, 2007 there will be no further authorizations inresponse to requests for Employment-based preference cases.  All numbers available to these categories under the FY-2007 annual numerical limitation have been made available.

Employment preference numbers will once again be available to these chargeability areas beginning October 1, 2007, under the
                              FY-2008 annual numerical limitation.
