It means immigration and immigrant's interests are in the agenda. Isnt that a good sign.
Dont the guys who did this know of the "current" situation. This makes me hope even other things will be on the table sooner. Ours can be first if we too make people realize how we contribute..

Default Obama immigration transition team

Hello IV Core Team Members,

thankyou all for doing a great job for the Immigrant Community by addressing and highlighting the issues / difficulties faced by immigrants in this country.

I take this opportunity to request you all to plan a meeting with the Obama Immigration Transition Team who are in still in the process of gathering information / meeting up with activists to gather as much info as possible before they come out with their strategy.

Here are the two key persons names from Obama's Immigration Transtition team:

Obama's “immigration transition team” — two law
professors, Tino Cuéllar of Stanford University and Georgetown's
Alexander Aleinikoff
.

I am herewith giving a web link of an article on Economy & CIR 2009.
http://groups.google.com/group/alt.v...3cbd1e47?pli=1


Appreciate if the IV Core Team schedule a meeting with the above and try to put forth the difficulties that the skilled immigrants are facing due to the visa retrogression and other related issues the IV Core team might feel important.

I am sure all the IV Members and non members would surely support & co-operate in any kind of approach that IV Core Team comes out with.

Look forward for some action from the IV Core Team.

Goodluck to All & May This "UGADI" make us all Green!!

Best Regards,

Rav

The only funniest thing is...you are talking about contribution. By the way, did you get any chance to mail your $50 check for FOIA which you forgot to mail for weeks. Yes, I am asking about only the $50 and not the $3000 which you and your firends promised.

Default what/who is core?

i have attended the rally in DC so, i know there were people and i know they are all really great people. talked with the Dr from Minneapolis for long... dont recall his name (Puneet Arora?). but, just out of curiosity, do we have a core? from where i am at it looks like we are a group of very interested folks connected together on this website. i am not meaning to underplay any efforts by anyone... i am just wishing that if there is no core, then people should do things on their own... instead of asking someone called core...

Pandi has a spectacular aura about Pandi has a spectacular aura about
Default Dream Act - Please include children of legal immigrants

It is very strange that children of legal immigrants are not considered in the act although they go through the same hardships . IV Core please request the lawmakers to consider the children of legal immigrants as well.

Thanks

May be, we should try our visa re-capture campaign again with this act. my 2 cents...

Forget about geting GCs by proposing to buy houses folks. Our beloved Congressmen are working to reduce employment visas behind the scenes. Once labor unions commandeer the commission to determine visa numbers, life is a one way street - Back Home.

http://www.latimes.com/news/nationwo...,4007105.story

When I proposed a March Rally everyone was complaining - it's too cold. I hope it's hot enough for all of you now. Good look to everyone working on FOIA to get the (useless) numbers to make (useless) predictions. Once the labor unions are done with their demolition job it will be 25-30 years before we see the GC ( that is if they don't send us back).

Walking Dude,
Thanks for the info.

Anyone who is opposing any campaign, including Core:

DO you still want to wait?????.
Immigration topic is on the table and people who are interested are working for their interests and ALSO trying to harm us. How much more do you want to wait???.
Thats what you said right for not doing any campaign now...????

Are you ready to lead the effort. As always you are sitting on the fence and want others to start the effort and still you and your friends can suspect them?

Gangutelli,

Yes, I can. And do you really think we are waiting for core group or you to act. Wake up and stop writing a thesis on my posts. See your previous ones.. Dont see even one word of positivity or encouragement.

You need a encouragement also...for what? If you can go ahead and do that...Who is stopping you. First send your check as you promised. Otherwise don’t promise anything which you can not fulfill.

DREAM ACT is for children of illegal immigrants. I dont think IV is pro-amnesty for illegals.

Here is IV's mission statement.

Mission Statement

The mission of Immigration Voice is to organize grassroots efforts and resources to solve several problems in the employment based green card process including (a) delays due to Retrogression (visa number unavailability for certain employment-based categories) (b) delays due to USCIS processing backlogs and (c) delays due to Labor Certification backlogs. We will work to remove these and other flaws by supporting changes to immigration law for high-skilled legal employment-based immigrants. High-skilled legal immigrants strengthen the United States' economy and help maintain American technological superiority.
