All,

We had always intended these forums to be mainly focused on IV's agenda and legislative strategy.

Up till now, IV's agenda has mainly been discussed in the "Green Card Retrogression" forum. We are creating a forum where we will only discuss those issues -- "IV Agenda and Legislative Strategy"

Example Topics:

Forum: IV Agenda and Legislative Strategy

IV Fundraising, News Articles on CIR issues, Current Bill Text Analysis

Forum: Green Card Retrogression

Visa Bulletin, assorted I-485 issues


I would also like to gently remind you that IV does not condone or endorse any discussions of methods to outgame the system -- by filing paperwork that does not match the facts etc. Several members have drawn our attention to posts that come close to crossing this line.

AILA has suggested two ways that everyone can let their voice be heard.

1. Flood congressional inboxes and phone lines: Take 30 seconds to send our pre-scripted CIR support letter to your senators and representatives, and then forward the link to all your pro-immigrant friends. Or pick up the phone and make a personal pitch in support of CIR to congressional staff. You will find the pre-scripted letter and phone numbers for congressional offices at our Congressional Action and Information Center at: http://capwiz.com/aila2

2) Talk to your elected officials: Attend a local town hall meeting and let your senators and representatives know you support humane and comprehensive reform. You will find a Town Hall Calendar at http://www.aila.org/content/default.aspx?docid=20340, and our Town Hall Tool Kit at http://www.aila.org/content/default.aspx?docid=20175

There are hardly any efforts now to do targetted email & phone campaigns now. This costs no money, and very little time.

I had called up Senator John Coryn's office. They told me that currently immigration bills are going nowhere. The Senator still has plans to introduce SKILL bill, but exactly when that will happen is not certain.

I think I would like to see more post saying -

1) I contacted my congress member or Senator. Have their commitment to support legal immigration.
2) I send mail to XYX number of my friend to join IV. Some may join and some may ridicule. But as IV member you did the job. The new member could either contribute 5 minutes of time everyday to contact Senator, Congress member or contacting friend, contibute money or at least raise the membership of this forum. Remember we are putting time to help ourself not IV. Because I know after most of us get GC, we will move on with life and next generation IV member will continue the effort.
3) I would like to see people in major city, launching a compaign to collect money. One of the idea which I think would be very useful is working with the Temple authority and selling food on some occasion. Some kind of arrangement should be made with Temple authority to get major part of sale collection to IV. This way we multiply our money. $20 can be easily made into $100 with some time from members.
My limitation is - I am in a village. But I will do something. I would not let limitation stop me.

GO IV TO SUPPORT YOURSELF NOT IV. I AM IN BECAUSE I AM AFFECTED.

I am a new member of this org. I read about Immigration Voice on MSNBC and joined in.

This is the first organization that I have ever heard in my entire carrier who has taken up work upto this extent.

I am happy to be a part of this.
