Question Questions from my Team

Hi friends,

I have got two questions about bullet c) and d).

c) An unfair 7% gap... - "Why is this unfair?".
The person asking this question is from Europe. Their argument was that the 7% quota was introduced to maintain diversity.

d) Lack of policy changes to keep pace with changes in high-skilled immigrant demographics.
I could not exactly explain what it refers to.

Can someone please help me explain this? I am probably not the only person that received questions about the petition, so I hope the information will be useful to everyone.

Thanks,
Easter Bunny

The entire system has not undergone major policy changes for a long time even though corporate america embraced globalization and demand for high skilled immigrants increased. We are hoping that by signing the petition, it will urge the decision makers to overhaul the entire system to represent the needs and demands of the current situation.

Thanks for explaining. In fact, Senator Schwarzenegger mentions this in his petition, too:

"Our green card system, also last devised in 1990, faces severe shortages that most heavily impact the high technology industry, forcing some of the most innovative contributors to our economy to wait well in excess of five years for a green card. Because of these delays we are seeing more and more of these talented individuals leave their U.S. jobs and return home."

The US gives out a total of 1 million Green Cards every year.

Out of this 140000 are in the employment category. Thats 14%.
Employment should be based on merit, so the per country quota doesn't make sense here.

They can apply the diversty criterion for the rest of the GCs being handed out that have nothing to do with merit.

Default Thank you

THANK YOU FOR ALL THOSE FAXING THE PETITION IN.

I REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR EFFORT. I KNOW SOME OF YOU CAN'T MAKE IT TO THE RALLY BUT BELIEVE ME WHEN I SAY THAT THIS WILL MAKE A POINT TO THE DECISION MAKERS.



Folks: Please take a minute out and download the petition. Its a small way for you to give back to IV regardless of whether you contributed or made it to the Rally.
