Don't take it as a No. This type of sensitive information is available to state chapter members who are verified and have established themselves in the 'circle of trust'.

Default Petition letter to Congressman/woman

Hi there,

I just printed out my letter to Nancy Pelosi using this template: http://immigrationvoice.org/forum/sh...11&postcount=6 and it reads great, however there are some spelling and gramatical errors in a few of the lines. Could we update it (or I can offer to proof and send the copy back) before anyone else uses it. Want to make the best impression! Thanks!

Default +1

This has been a low-scoring week, although I just managed to get 1 more letter. I am now on 152.

We are also trying to make another attempt at contacting the local lawmaker. No response to our online requests. Now, we will follow up with a phone call.

Re: Administrative fixes to alleviate issues faced by highly-skilled immigrants in <<state>>

Respected Senator/Representative <<lastname>>,

I am a constituent and an employment-based highly-skilled immigrant. << fill in your bio in 2-3 sentences max>>. I'm also a member of Immigration Voice, a non-profit grassroots organization working to fix the issues faced by highly-skilled immigrants like myself. Currently a million employment immigrants and their families are stuck in a backlog due to insufficient numbers and USCIS processing delays. It may be 6-12 years before these immigrants will be able to receive their green cards, if the immigration system isn't reformed.

Though Immigration Voice is interested in seeing legislative fixes passed by US Congress, it may take a long time for an agreed immigration reform to pass. Considering this fact, Immigration Voice has proposed the following points to President Bush's administration to fix some of the issues administratively. I urge you to support our cause by writing a letter to President Bush, as follows, to implement these administrative fixes without further delay.

"

Respected President Bush,

I urge you to implement the following administrative fixes immediately to help the highly-skilled immigrants waiting their turn in a severely backlogged system.

1) Recapture 218,000 unused visas wasted over the past few years administratively, in line with Congressional intent of providing 140,000 visas annually to our community.

2) Flexibility in the USCIS interpretation of "same and similar" jobs, to allow promotions and job mobility. Correct USCIS rule is restrictive and pushes the applicant to the end of the line, if they accept promotions.

3) Allow filing of 'Adjustment of Status Applications', even when visa numbers are not available. This will not create an increase in visas, but will allow a number of immigrants to avail the benefits of changing jobs while waiting for their visa numbers.

4) Increase the period of Employment Authorization Document (work authorization) and Advance Parole (travel permit) to 3 years instead of the current practice of 1 year. This will reduce the burden on USCIS and on immigrants. It will also make travel to an immigrant's home country easier during emergencies.

5) Allow visa revalidation in the US as before. Currently, immigrants have to travel to their home country to renew their visas. If it was performed here in the US, it would be helpful in making it easier to travel back and forth during emergencies.

6) Restart premium processing for I-140 applications. Now that USCIS has cleared the receipting backlog, premium processing should be made available. Without it, many immigrants are unable to extend their stay beyond 6 years, if their labor certification was applied for after the completion of their 5th year of stay in the US.

"

Repectfully,
