If you remember, I had started the initial thread for FBI name check victims and also helped towards a yahoo database of people stuck in namecheck. However, when I realized that this wont be a core issue in the forum I decided to focus on my own efforts instead of creating a mass campaign.
You may be right about the small fraction of people stuck in name check. However, I think that the percentage of indians as well as the absolute number of Indians stuck in name check is quite high. I think so because of the number of indians who have reported the problem, the large number of indians who try to immigrate to US and also because of the fact that a lot of the indian people have very common names and the chance of a hit with someone with a criminal record or someone who was a fbi witness is very high.
I am not saying that this shoudl be reason to make it a core issue with IV. Instead I will say that this is one issue that has a definite judicial remedy (Writ of Mandamus), albeit at a cost, whcih as I explained earlier would be recovered easily. And so one who is stuck in this should resort to this means as against hoping to create a mass campaign. I believe that most (but not all) Indian professionals can spend 3000-4000 if they can be assured of a remedy to this namcheck problem. Whereas the other issues like retrogression and BEC labor processing dont have a clear remedy and the only way to solve that is to create a mass campaign and lobby to enact new legislation or file a class action lawsuit.
I sincerely hope that everyone who is stuck in the immigration process finds a remedy as soon as possible.
