Default New Immigration Reform this year ??

Please check this post by murthy on Non 09, 2007

http://www.murthy.com/news/n_nupush.html

On October 23, 2007, sixteen members of the New Democrat Coalition, led by the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, requested that "the House take action this year to resolve the immediate talent crisis that is facing U.S. employers." The group is pushing for reform that would increase H1B and employment based permanent residence, or "green card" quotas, before Congress adjourns this year.

Any IV updates on this ?

Yet again we have H1B and GC issues together , does this mean there is no chance that this would succeed ?

slightly offtopic:
Its funny that you linked to Murthy's website for such news, as they are typically the slowest to pick up anything like this. Mathhew Oh is fast... and some IV member (or core itself) the fastest.
This was discussed on IV (& even a link to the exact letter posted) the very day it became public:
http://immigrationvoice.org/forum/sh...ad.php?t=14821 (New Democrat Coalition)

visit IV often to check for such updates, if something comes up we'll all need to mobilize quickly (phone/fax campaigns)

This year has seen like a 100 letters go back and forth between the house and senate on High skilled immigration , and we are where we were . The only outcome that the senators have had is they have improved their letter writing skills , and the only advantage nancy pelosi has had is that she is now the proud owner of a file which by now is 100 letters thick all pleading her to reform the immigration process and how prodly she can proclaim that she has done NOTHING to improve our plight .

SORRY to SAY this but cannot help but be sarcastic.

Very well said. Nancy Pelosi was very assiduous in bringing a resolution on Armenian Genocide that happenned over 100 years ago!! So, she may NOT have time to work on "Current" world matters!

My post is not intended to lighten the Armenian Genocide event.

Default Immigration Dead For The Year

both the parties have decided not to touch immigration at all this year (till elections) they have decided against any increase in any numbers (h1b's, GC's) etc, so much so that the senate are requesting chertoff (homeland security secretary) to increase the OPT time for international student to 2.5 years so they can temp overide the h1b jam.

You seem to be knowing what really is happening there in DC. If yes, why are you not part of the IV team that is working for our issues?

We are hearing otherwise from IV. We trust IV.

Did you hear Sen. Grasley last week? There are many bills to be concluded before the end of the year. There is a lot of pressure from corporate America right now. The US economy can ill afford to alienate capitalists at this juncture.
There are also other skill sets like Medicine, Nursing and other areas where there are well documented shortages, the issues of these fields have been held up in the overall debate over H1bs. Legislators are aware they have to address these also.

Have you watched "Ararat", the movie? You will understand why the particular issue is important for Armenians. Let us just focus on high skilled legal immigration.
