I sent an email to all my friends/coworkers who're familiar with our problem. My wife and my sister are doing the same at their respective schools. I am sure we will get a lot of them signed.

Thank you.

Exclamation How about Highlighting solutions more than problems?

I appreciate the effort that has gone into preparing the petition, uploading it and the campaign to get it signed by as many as possible.

My grouse is - I'm not nitpicking here - that it talks only about the problems and not about the solutions. If we talk only about the problem and leave out the solutions, others will come up with solutions that may be worser than the problem itself. For e.g. the now-dead "Points Based System" that was tossed at us in the last CIR with the reduction in EB visa numbers.

Here's something to get the discussion started...

1) Increase EB based GCs to prevent 'Reverse Brain Drain' and the resulting outsourcing of jobs from hurting the US economy
2) End the national quotas that discriminate between workers based on National Origin [ If a company hired only 7% Indians , 7% Chinese, 7% Phillippinos , 7% Mexicans and the rest from other parts of the World, such a company would be in violation of Civil Rights Act - which prohibits discrimination in providing employment based on National Origin. Yet, it's actively practiced in Employment/Worker immigration. ]

.... other IV talking points

Default Correct

You are right. Do understand that the petition itself will not be handed as it is. There will be an elaborate cover letter on the proposed solutions before slamming these petitions in front of the door of the decision makers.
