    Immigration Voice: Announces Advocacy days in Washington DC in April.

    Immigration Voice in its continued efforts to find legislative and administrative fixes is holding Advocacy Days in Washington DC on Monday, April 4th and Tuesday, April 5th.

    2011 is a crucial year to get the fix needed to clear the backlogs and allow for our high skilled immigrants to get the relief needed. We need to capitalize on the opportunity to push for legislation now, as it is unlikely to have any favorable immigration bill to be brought for the next 2-3 years (Primary campaigns, Presidential campaigns will take priority).

    IV’s vision is to hold more than 400 meetings with the legislator offices both in the House and the Senate. We will also be holding meetings with senior administration officials working on immigration issues. As a grassroots organization we need members from all across the country to register, participate in the advocacy event, bring awareness on our issues and seek a positive vote on our provisions from the legislators.

    We aim to resolve this issue but we cannot do it alone and therefore it is imperative for everyone, and by that we mean EVERY ONE to participate in one way or the other. If you wanted to be a part of the past events but couldn’t, then now is your chance to make your voices heard and fight for a fair system and just process. Always remember, we are in United States at the invitation of our employers and our employers have filed our green card petitions in order to retain us. It is only fair and only just to ask for a system that achieves that objective without delays and without putting the immigrants in probationary limbo for 6-12 years. And it is your obligation to yourself and your family to stand up for your rights and ask Congress to legislate and fix the system so that it works the way it was originally intended to work.

    Our previous efforts such as the June Advocacy 2010, September Advocacy and Rally 2007, Flower campaign, San Jose Rally, and many intermediary mini advocacy events in DC has allowed us to be one step closer to the goal. We need to make this upcoming event as a final push for reform. The President’s STOU address and feedback from Lawmaker meetings have provided us the encouragement to pursue this endeavor. As many of our members know, the efforts in our last advocacy days are consequential in how we are perceived by the lawmaker offices. IV calls upon members who participated previously to provide their input on the need for advocacy efforts and persuade many others to join in.

    Immigration Voice will arrange for meetings, advocacy material, and other logistics necessary for all the events during the Advocacy Days. All you have to do is show up. We request our members to come in on Saturday, April 2nd for orientation and training. Please make arrangements to carpool (for driving distances), book airline tickets, and contact friends in DC/MD area to host you. IV will not sponsor your travel and stay for this event. We expect each one of you to take the initiative and stand up for yourself and your family and use this opportunity to ask lawmakers to act on high-skilled immigration issue.

    Our efforts have to be of a massive scale, we need members from every State to participate in the event. To be successful we need more than 200 members attending meetings. We also need to know in advance on your attendance. Please take the time to talk to your employers, arrange for a leave of absence, and register for the event as soon as possible. Make every possible attempt to be in DC.

    To conduct such an effort, IV also needs contributions. Our estimated cost is around $50,000 for the event. We need generous contributions from our members, especially from members who are unable to make it to the DC event. To be clear, all one time contributions starting from February 1st will be considered as a contribution to the advocacy event. All the recurring donations will continue to go towards Donor forum access. Our advocacy event costs will be on top of our regular costs and we need to pay for both.

    Please register here. (

    Hi Core, Senior Members and all:

    Now that we got the bad news I would like to know what is our next plan of action -Campaign, Flowers, Letters, Calls, Faxes?

    On my way to work today I was listening to NPR and looks like there is a march on May 1st to the White House by the Hispanic Groups.

    Also coincidentally another newsbrief by Jennifer at Washington WAMU was about H1B cap not reaching and the long wait of skilled immigrants waiting in queue for their Green Cards to be processed.

    Should we be contacting her to air an exclusive article on this subject?

    Your thoughts?

    That is for the 2008 stimulus. They were going to do the same in 2009, but it was reversed at the last minute. I am sorry I could not get the 2008 stimulus overturned. The best we were able to do was the HEART Act, which only helps those who are active military. However, the 2009 stimulus is available for everyone. This time it is not a one time payment, but you will see a small increase in your monthly paycheck.

    Thanks for your efforts Totoro, I was confused because the guy said last year! Good going.

    My wife and I went for the medical examination 1.5 years ago, when we thought we'll be eligible to file shortly. We still have those sealed envelopes. However, the time passed and I understand we need to undergo the exam again for our June filing, correct?

    The first time around my wife had a positive skin test (immunized in childhood) and negative Xray. Back then she was advised to never do the skin test again, as it'll always be positive. So, she'll need to go for an Xray this time. However, she is pregnant, and they don't Xray pregnant women... Is she an exempt then? There gotta be a provision for something like this, right?

    regarding the state chapters
    this is what i found on the page following your link

    At first i thought there was no state chapter for California. Only after searching the page for the word "california" did i find the ones for Southern California and Northern California
    which are not states but just different parts of California.
    Was i supposed to magically just guess that it is listed this way...or am i a moron who just does not understand this simple thing?

    May be its true what you call yourself. How much time it took to find out these info for you.

    Just back from an Infopass appointment.

    The lady was friendly and chked the status of my application. First she informed me that it was under review and then she told me that on Aug 3, it was assigned to an IO. I didn't ask any further questions as the news that my case has been assigned to an officer made me happy. I just wished her a good day and left.

    Now, I'm beginning to wonder if I shud have asked more questions such as about Namecheck, FP etc...But I donno its with an IO and I guess I'll know the actual status shortly.

    My daughter aged out a couple of years ago due to the fact that my husband's labor was in process and it took about 2 plus years to get approved. Another thing is we have no options at all because our child is severely handicapped and we came here only to participate in a research and never went back as doctors advised her to stay here due to her health issues. We continue to keep her in legal status by applying for B2 visa all the time and which USCIS has been kind enough to grant it to her based on doctor's letters. I hope something is done for the children who have aged out. I even took up our case through Senator's office but nothing happened. It would be really great if IV could do something for the Aged Out Children and parents. I had to leave the job and get into H4 due to her ill health and be her primary care giver.

    Regarding finding the bottom, follow this thumb rule for now:
    You would not see any recovery of any sort in economy or housing until and unless you see a turn around in financials. So just closely follow them. Right now turn around in financial companies and banks is no where in picture.

    I guess that's a good indicator, yes. In any case, I have no plans in buying a house in the nearer term even if I get my green card. I already got a nice, large apartment in India which I could very, very easily afford 3-4 years back :) Now, even that is unaffordable.:D

    Considering the layoffs that are looming large, I don't even know what the subsequent quarters have in store for me. Forget buying a house in the US, I would glad if I can survive this terrible downturn. All the blue chips are laying off. MSFT laid off 5k, something which wasn't done in three decades.

    My wife got her H1b petition approved but not the change of status, that is she did not get the I94 along with the approval (she was outside the country at the time of approval). I know that she should be going out of the country and get the visa before she can start working. But After some research I found that there is another option, which is filing "amendment petition".

    Has anyone done this before. If anyone has done this please share your experiences.

    Does she has any H1 visa stamped in her passport?

    Not a legal advice.

    ...who said that they are from non-IT field , it suggests that more than 90% affected are from IT and EB2 ? I want to see hard numbers....

    I am not sure what you are going to achieve with the field type. You have to consider some inherent facts about the Employment Based immigration...

    1) Most (not all) applications are from India
    2) Most (not all) applicants from India are in IT field
    3) Most applicants, in general, are filing EB2.

    If you consider all these facts, it becomes apparent that IT/EB2/India is not something they are purposely focusing on, it just happens to be that way. If you want more information on this data, I suggest you check out '' that shows Country and EB type by each user and whether they got audited or not.

    I dont think we necessarily need people to describe their field for the initiative we plan to take against late audit responses.

    I think it made a lot of sense to me ... Here is the article in its entirely. It kind of matches with sobers and nyte_crawlers descriptions above ...

    "President Bush has set out his goals on immigration reform to the American people. "There is," he said, "a rational middle ground between granting an automatic path to citizenship for every illegal immigrant, and a program of mass deportation." I agree that a rational middle ground can be found -- but amnesty is not the middle ground.

    Instead, I will soon be introducing legislation, the Border Integrity and Immigration Reform Act. This bill is tough on border security and tough on employers who hire illegal aliens. It will include a guest worker program -- but it will not include an amnesty (nor require a huge new government bureaucracy to administer the program). I believe this legislation is a strong alternative to the amnesty plan passed by the Senate; and I hope that it will serve as an attractive alternative to my colleagues in the House of Representatives.

    Since immigration reform must begin by securing our border, my plan incorporates the Border Protection, Antiterrorism and Illegal Immigration Control Act, already passed by the House, in its entirety, with only minor changes. Thus my plan will add port-of-entry inspectors, end the policy of "catch and release," put to use American technology such as unmanned aerial vehicles, require a security fence to be built across our southern border, and require the Secretary of Homeland Security to certify that all these border security measures are substantially completed before any new guest worker program would begin.

    But my bill does not include a so-called path to citizenship, i.e., an amnesty, for the some 12 million illegal aliens in this country. Instead, it insists that they leave and come back legally if they have a job opportunity in the U.S. They will be allowed to do so under the terms of a guest-worker program that will be implemented by firms in the private sector, not by a new government bureaucracy.

    Private worker-placement agencies -- "Ellis Island Centers" -- would be licensed by the federal government to match guest workers with jobs that employers cannot fill with American workers. These agencies will match guest workers with jobs, perform health screening, fingerprint them, and convey the appropriate information to the FBI and Homeland Security so that a background check can be performed. Once this is done, the guest worker would be provided with a visa issued by the State Department. The whole process will take a matter of one week, or less.

    My immigration reform plan does not favor illegal immigrants. Anyone may apply for a guest-worker visa at the new Ellis Island Centers; indeed, the plan may actually work to the advantage of applicants who have never violated our immigration laws, since guest-worker visas will be issued only outside the U.S.

    There will initially be no cap on the number of visas that can be issued; for the first three years, the market and the needs of U.S. employers will set the limit on the number of guest workers. This is necessary in order to provide the incentive for illegal aliens in this country to self-deport and come back legally. After three years, however, a reasonable limit on the number of these "W" visas will be determined by the Department of Labor, based on employment statistics, employer needs and other research.

    Nevertheless, there will be a limit on the amount of time guest workers can spend in this country. They would be allowed to renew their visas, but only for a period of up to six years. And in order to receive their first renewal, they would be required to study English and pass an English proficiency class.

    After six years, a guest worker must decide whether to return home or seek citizenship. But he will do so under the normal rules and regulations of our naturalization laws. There is no path to citizenship in my bill.

    Lastly, my immigration bill includes strict employer enforcement. It does so by incorporating the employer-enforcement provisions contained in the House-passed Border Protection bill. Thus, there will be established a nationwide electronic employment-verification system through which employers will confirm the legality of each prospective and current employee.

    Employers who choose to operate outside the system would face stiff fines. Once the new enforcement system is in place, jobs for illegal aliens will dry up.

    As the grandson of an Irish immigrant, I believe in the ideals enshrined on the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor. America always has been, and always will be, a welcoming nation, welcoming under the law any and all with courage enough to come here. But a nation without borders is not a nation, and across this country Americans are anxious about our borders.

    Every night Americans see news images of people crossing the border illegally. They hear of people paying thousands of dollars to "coyotes" to smuggle them into the country; they worry that drugs will make their way into the hands of their children more readily. And they rightly fear that our porous borders make it more likely that terrorists will cross with deadly intentions against our families.

    I believe that my Border Integrity and Immigration Reform Act is a solution that those opposed to amnesty and those who propose a guest-worker program can both support. It offers a solution that those calling for the humane treatment of illegal immigrants can embrace.

    And I believe that this solution is one the American people can embrace. This is the real rational middle ground."

    gc4me : Pardon me, but how is citizenship not a relevant issue to legal immigrants? If you're not worried about citizenship issues, then why are you even infesting this thread? Many people, including me, might be interested. And I have indeed contributed, although I don't see how that is any of your business and as long as this website isn't being hosted on your home computer, I don't see what gives you the right to ask it of anyone in a patronizing tone. It's simple really, if you're not interested in any issue, just stay away. No one needs your BS sarcasm or disapproval.

    This is important thread and shoul not be closed.

    IV is a organization of highly skilled immigrant who suffers from long waiting for immigration process. That includes all issues such as Name check, EAD, AP, Backlog, Green Card, I-140, I-485. Citizenship is also a issue that ultimately affects to all who wait for the long time for GC. So this organization should at least discuss implication and possible solutions, that can help to reduce Citizenship wait time for its members.

    Because of the other pressing issues, it may not be a priority issue, but it is some thing to keep on the table and discussion when Major Immigration Over haul take place. I personally think it need action from cogress to address it.

    I think releief in terms of less years as citizenship wait time for Highly skilled immigrant who has waited for long/ contributed in the taxes to the country and contributing by his Skills and Qualifications, is achivable.

    when Some one who just marry to Citizen can get Citizenship in only 3 yrs of wait, If they can give cuban credit for their wait time, If in last bill they can propose TO REDUCE ONE YEAR WAIT TIME for some one who know english, than why one should hesitate in asking similar relief for some one who has Say PhD/ Master in Engineering/ Sciences, has contributed to this nation in the taxes for five or more years and has suffered because of the problems in the system.

    Remember orginal wait time for Five Year after, though I am not exactly sure, but looks like designed based on Family based Immigration system, where person comes in the country just based on the family tie ( no other qualification) and comes directly as a Green Card holder it might be wise to wait five years to see his contributions to the country and his other aspects.

    Also when many countries are making changes in their rules to attract highly skilled immigrants, when US imigration system is likely to be changed in near future, this might be right favour to ask for Highly Skilled immigrant from any country in terms of citizenship benefits.

    Hope IV team and members keep this topic in mind apart from other immidiate pressing issues and needs. some time we come so much involved with our immidiate need that we can not see long distance. Who ever brought this point is thinking in the long distance goal of finishing immigration process, which many of us started as a H-1, F-1, Visitor, J-1, L-1 or among the several other immigration categories. Why we should not be thinking of finish line, where we want to reach some day. There is no harm in thinking and discussing that how to reach that finsih line.

    10-05 06:43 PM
    For that one of these two should happen. Eb3 should move forward and Eb2 should retrogress.

    Or EB2 stays and EB3 alone moves forward.

    Or EB3 stays and EB2 has to retrogress so much (to 2001)!

    I guess chance for 1st and 2nd option are high. And, this would answer Ramba's question how EB3 for India would get approval for PD 2003. There are very few 2001 PDs left (per me). Relatively more 2002 and most of 2001 and 2002 are pending due to name check else they would have got their GC during July and USCIS would not have returned VISA numbers back to DOS nor some numbers would have finally got wasted (FY2007).

    So next PD would be 2003 (and there are very few 2003 filings that were filed before June 2007).

    Categories |2006 | 2005 | 2004
    EB-1 | 36,960 | 64,731 |31,291
    EB-2 | 21,911 | 42,597 |32,534
    EB-3 | 89,922 | 129,070* |85,969
