May 2010 Visa Bulletin released

The US Department of State has released the Visa Bulletin for May 2010. The biggest news is that the 3rd Preference and Other Workers categories for Mexico are "Unavailable" and will remain so for the rest of this fiscal year.

DOS states that 
Due to continued heavy applicant demand, primarily by USCIS Offices for adjustment of status cases, the annual limits for the Mexico Employment Third and Third preference Other Worker categories have been reached. As a result, both categories have become “unavailable.” Visa numbers will become available once again in October with the start of the new fiscal year.
