Default my take....

Admin - I see that you have mentioned HR5882 and recapture. Could you please post one or two talking points specifically for this bill so that members do not confuse it with the other bills out there.

This is to recapture visa numbers that were not used during the years (??) for legal highly skilled employment based immigrants etc.
The bill text:
http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill...bill=h110-5882

For both family and work Green Card quota:
1) yearly recapture: If USCIS lets part of their quota die then they can use them next year.
2) One-off recapture: Fiscal years 1992 to 2007, add those green card numbers that were wasted by ineffective policy.

As we know, USCIS can't effectively guesstimate their utilization of visas due to varying demand and varying regulations. Those which they do not use are "lost", thereby undermining the intent of the legislatively set quota.

They face a Sword of Damocles. They can't legally use their green card allotment +1. So each year they use (allotment - safety buffer). If this passes, they'll be able to safely use (allotment - this year's safety buffer + last year's unused safety buffer), which will likely approximate the allotment. Over time, none will be wasted, and they'll be able to plan to process the actual allotment.

When you have a big ship, it doesn't stop on a dime. They hire, train staff, or lay staff off. But a cycle of hiring and firing is inefficient.

To All congress-critters:
In a nutshell, this bill allows USCIS to manage their workflow more effectively, which provides better customer service, and will eventually lead to better turn-around times.

To Democrats: More people will be able to get their citizenship in reasonable times.

To Republicans: Companies will be able to attract more talent which improves economic performance.

Hope it helps

I would like Representative "Representative Name" to co sponsor bills
HR 6039 & HR 5882, HR 5921. All the three bills have wide bipartisan
support in the house and will help improve American competitiveness &
reduce the back logs associated with USCIS. All these bills are non
controversial measures that will help US to stay competitive with a
highly educated and skilled work force.
Tomorrow's markup is for HR5882 only. So please refer HR5882 ONLY when calling the Representative's office.

Thanks,

Say that you are a member of Immigration Voice.

Also, if the staffer ask - "did you call the representative in your area", say that -

"Yes I did. Congressman ____ is a prominent member of Immigration Sub-committee which makes him a national figure of great importance. Congressman's decision and support are very important for people inside and outside of your district and as such I urge you and the Congressman to support HR5882."

Done.

Some of them knew exactly what the bill was about. One of them did say that we cannot pass on your message coz you are not from our constituency, but I gently reminded her that NONE of the reps from my state were on this committee, so she did agree to pass the message along.

I called the demoncrat members exept sheila jackson lee and linda sanchez. They two are coponsors of the bill, prsumably they will vote for their own legislation.

I would say if you have to make a choice (due to time or other constraints), call the republican congressmen first. Democrats will generally vote for an immigration friendly measure, but republicans may not so we have to call them first.
