political posturing ?
 
I am guessing that most probably the announcement from core team would be about inclusion of some EB favourable provisions into the currently discussed fence bill. Even if the senate passes the bill with these provisions today I hate to admit that time is against us....The senate is going to recesses after the next week and there is hardly anytime to reconcile the bill and re-send it to both the house and the senate and get it passed before that...all this while making sure that amendements that are important to us don't get bumped off in the process. Don't get me wrong...I want to be optimistic...albiet very very cautiously...Good luck to all

Let it be secret till last moment
 
I would advise to keep the announcement secret till as long as possible. It should be posted only when it is tabled in Senate or House or where ever. Several agencies are working against our interests and we should not caution them.
I have patience and other members should also be patient leaving everyting to core team with full trust.

Rpatel:

What you say may be true, but does that mean IV should stop trying? Please remember this post and post it again, when there are posts on the forum asking what is IV doing. IV has no control over what happens to the provisions or the bills or how the schedule works. All IV will keep on doing is trying to get our provisions in any bill or vehicle that is appropriate and likely to pass.

As far as your guess is concerned, being an IV member, any update we post will have to be EB related. We are not going to post updates for members informing them about things not concerning EB issues. I just wish there was any way to make members realize how difficult it is to get any issue even included in the current enforcement first atmosphere.

I agree with, all what we want is to get our issue solved thru the normal avenues.

I agree with jungalee43, let this thread also have access for members only.
guys, lets be patient and not spill the beans yet.
bkarnik, We have total faith in the core team, getting our provisions in any bill in the current atmosphere of "Just enforcement - Secure border first" is not easy at all. Infact it is an uphill task to even get some time with the law makers. I applaud all the efforts.

anurakt 09-20-2006 12:43 PM

Expected Time
 
Any idea by what time the announcement will be out ? I will go and have my lunch meanwhile ...currently refreshing the page every 2 kins ;)

rpatel 09-20-2006 12:44 PM

We all appreciate your efforts
 
BKarnik:

Please don't get me wrong. I truely appreciate all the efforts of the core team. My intention in saying what I did was to put the info in a truthful manner as I saw it. And let me the first to say that even if the current senate and house is not able to adress our concerns before its term expires...just by having them pass incomplete bills with our provisions sets a very good precedent for the New congress after Nov elections.

Friends:

At this time there is no set time frame when the update can be given. The situation is really fluid right now. We are working closely with QGA and will announce when appropriate. Members need not go hungry or stop working :))
Also, keep in mind that things could still go haywire.

GCard_Dream 09-20-2006 01:14 PM

Is there any C-SPAN link where we can actually follow the fence bill developments in the Senate? Has anyone been able to listen in?
