This bill won't help me immediately since my PD is December 2005, and yet I contributed for such a big effort from IV. I am also doing Masters, and will be completing next year.

I pledge to donate more....

They are already supporting this. Check the list of supporters here ... H.R.3012: Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act - U.S. Congress - OpenCongress

Though I don't know how much they have contributed yet.

If contacting Senators is an IV action item then I would start calling now.

Time to take action to have H.R.3012 become law.
1) Contribute to IV for exceelent job. If H.R.3012 become law ( which is now in sight) we would be saving thousands of

dollars spent otherwise each year for EAD, AP, H1 Extension etc:
This is only chance to get GC before retirement.

2) Contact Senators to support and expedite H.R.3012 on Senate floor.

3) Spread wors to friends by emails, facebook, Twitter.

Below is link for senate Judicial comitee members:
U.S. Congress Senate Committee on the Judiciary: Immigration, Refugees and Border Security - GovTrack.us

All the best.

In these things there is no fixed price. Its all about how much you can invest to get political capital. Other organizations invest millions and still not get anything. But if we can match them, we can certainly lobby each and every Senate office rather than just some key offices with shoe strong budgets. There is also a lot more we can do in terms or organizing advocacy. So we need to now think beyond just $25, 50, 100 by a couple of hundred people we all have been doing till now. Even tiny lawyers that are only filling our forms in English that we can also do charge more than $300. So this is far more than just filling a form in English. This is a crunch time and we should be thinking in thousands each. That is what I think we we are really interested in success of this bill. There should not be any excuse if this fail. We should go in confident that we gave our best.

DO not call anyone.

Follow action items by the book.

Any wrong step will be detrimental to the bill. Do not do your own action items. Please visit IV everyday to check for updates and action items.

They say, you have to die to go to heaven
Nobody else can die for you to have you go to heaven.

It is people who are suffering and are desperate for the bill that need to make sacrifices and make the effort. These kinds of organizations are one too many and they have their own agenda. They do not care if you and I get a green card or not get a grencard. They only care that we should be buying their tickets when they call film stars.

So let us all believe in ourselves first. We have come so far by believing in ourselves. We al have made a lot of personal sacrifices. Suffered a lot in our lives and career. It is time to end that suffering.

Default Contribution

Hello, I am sure this info is available somewhere, but I was hoping to contribute $50 (one time) to the IV cause but I couldnt find any option to do that. Could someone help me with this?

Oh btw, great job guys at getting the bill through the House!!!! One more hurdle ahead before the home stretch.

Default 3 year transition means?

Once this bill is passed it will be implemented in 3 -year phased manner?
Can anyone (who knows) tell me what does it mean? Does it mean it will be implemented 3 years after it became law?

Phased manner just means 15% reserved for ROW in first year, 10% in second year and 5% in 3rd year, which ensures ROW gets atleast some GCs their way in the first 3 years. Else, because of current backlog, it would have meant ROW does not get any atleast in the first 2 years.

I liked the way the bill is thought about to include something for everyone including ROWers.
ROWers wont like losing a privilege they had (which is visible in other forums) but there is still something to them in this bill. Most of the noise I see is coming from EB3-ROW.

Other than making GC process fair for indians and chinese, I think this bill will unite all the GC seekers once ROWers forget about the short term pain.
