Honorable Congressman or Senator "_____"
Address

Dear Sir (or Madam)

Re: Employment based visa backlogs.

Please accept a lot of heart felt thanks for considering the visa backlog case of the employment based green card applicants.

I request you to kindly support the bipartisan bill (Bill H.R. 5882), to "recapture" EB visa numbers aka green cards introduced by Congresswoman Lofgren and Rep. Sensenbrenner. This will restore approximately 218,000 unused visa numbers for employment based (EB) green card (GC) applicants and provides future remedies for the visa wastages by USCIS.

The long wait, in many cases more than ten (10) years, for the green cards has been a big career impediment for a highly skilled immigrant like me. We are required to be in the same job for several years as our green cards are tied to a specific position and not to our qualifications. Thus, denying us any promotional and entrepreneurship opportunities and preventing us to contribute to the society, our full potential. The bill will help clear some of the backlog and thus, bringing hope and cheers to hundreds of thousands of highly skilled immigrants and their families. In addition, this bill is a mechanism to unleash lots of fresh capital and new ideas, which is vital to the country’s future.

I have firm faith in your leadership and a strong feeling that you would certainly support, what is in the best interest of this country.

Hoping for a favorable decision on your part.

Yours Sincerely

"__________"

This thread should be on the top . Given the time constraints, we need to send faxes ASAP.

Nemadeni,
Thanks for doing this. We need some more favor from you:
a) Can you please post the fax numbers and address of these lawmakers
b) May I suggest you to start a poll to see how many people sent these faxes . I will sent mine as soon as I receive fax number from you.

Folks, quick thing. No need to send to Rep Lofgren as she is the sponserer. If at all, we should be sending a thank you note to her.

I urge everyone to send faxes as soon as possible to these congress men.
Sending faxes or letters will help out congressman to realize how strongly we need this measure to pass and become the law.
