I guess we have to be patient and sit tight. HR 3012 should pass by its merit, no matter what we do. HR 1981 is on Union Calendar since 12/16/2011, about the same time when HR 3012 is placed on senate calendar. This is the bill to protect children from internet pornographers! We expect something like this to be passed at the blink of your eye!

Except the first one some or all will be there for atleast 5 to 10 years.Even if Grassley goes out of senate some one will come to his position.

Basically anti immigrants are working for restrcting.immigration mainly h1b and L1 because of unemployment. Grassley's proposed bill will have huge impact on companies like TCS or Wipro but not on microsoft or oracle. Anyhow no one including IV will accept will accept Grassley's proposal.

But HR3012 is an exception and have a good chance to pass as no big anti immigrant oraganization is opposing as it is not altering the immigration count. Even Hira and IEEE are not opposing. But Grassley wants to add his amendment to this bill. But that is not going to happen. That is the situation. But it seems background manything is happening for HR3012. Mainly IV might be trying to lobby to bring the bill to Senate by overriding or overcoming Grassley's Hold.

Also another thing is lot of politics,lobbying and advocacy in background in house to bring and pass the bill. One of them was to increase the family based to 15% to get complete support of all the democrats. So in senate also some adjustment is necessary. But no one knows what is happening in the background. So lot of specualtion like Irish E3. It may take a few weeks for things to become clear

We should think about alternatives at this stage in addition to doing the action items-We cannot just rely on 3012 advocacy --

IV CORE --
Are we supposed to just work on these action items-or should we start thinking around some other alternatives -example the send messages to whitehouse to remove derivatives from being included in the numbers,etc.

What happened man -- No motivating emails from you since a long time --last we heard Dec 21 --those are inspiring emails especially the words like "I understand that it's frustrating to wait longer but we have to understand that legislative process is like a slow moving glacier"

Please keep writing --pen is mightier than a sword --and those emails are very encouraging/motivating/inspiring . . .

How can I use the experience that I gained by working for current employer against 5 years needed for EB2 filing. I have read that this can be done if the job duties for EB2 filing is 50-60% different from job duties that individual had (experience that will be counted against the 5 years)
Here is the summary
3 years 2 months of work experience as a programmer with two other companies.
2 years 3 months of work experience as a Programmer with current employer
4 years 11 months of work experience as Sr Programmer/Team Lead with current employer.

Please let me know what experience can be counted toward EB2 filing and what should be job duties for the EB2.
Can I use the Job duties of a programmer or team lead?

Any help is appreciated. Tried company's lawyer but they are useless
I would suggest you change to new employer if possible. As per my lawyer, only prior experience counts and not the current experience.

Friends,

The TRUTH about fairness is that it is NOTselling for itself, and hence the fight. Particularly in this country, this can't go like this for ever. Waiting is NOT bad, probably needed when we are goal oriented.

How about someone (who have creativity & expertice) making a short film (10 min max) on this FAIRNESS. I wudn't be surpriced if this becomes another kolaveri

Don't know what is going really and when this bill would be atleast discussed on the senate floor.Would be super to know if HR3012 still is a stand alone bill or other provisions are tagged along with it.

Here is an interesting take on Huffpost.

Default From Irish Echo:

The hoped-for Irish E-3 visa bill that Senator Scott Brown said last week was “about to pop” was still stalled on Capitol Hill this week with Iowa Senator Charles Grassley maintaining his hold on a measure that combines the proposals of Massachusetts Republican Brown, and New York Democrat, Senator Charles Schumer.
As such, the story has become a tale of two Chucks (Grassley and Schumer) with a Scott in the middle.
Sources were indicating this week that Grassley was effectively proposing to “eviscerate” the Irish E-3 proposal by merging it with an existing E-3 program open to Australians.
The Schumer Irish bill envisages 10,000 renewable E-3 visas on an annual basis for eligible Irish applicants. But according to sources, there would be precious few E-3s for the Irish under Grassley’s plan as virtually all the visas would be snapped up by Australians.
Backers of the Irish E-3 are now looking to Senator Brown, who has penned his own Irish E-3 measure, to persuade sufficient Republican colleagues in the Senate to reach a required 60 votes.
The Schumer version of the bill is supported by all 53 Democrats.
“He needs to get his side in order,” said a source, referring to Sen. Brown.
Last week, Brown told the Boston Herald that his E3 bill was “about to pop” on Capitol Hill with passage possible before week’s end.
“In Massachusetts we have such a strong demand for this because of our family and cultural ties. This is kind of a no-brainer,” Brown told the daily.
Brown’s bill actually proposes 10,500 Irish E-3s but leaves out any possible waiver for the undocumented Irish. In order to secure across the aisle agreement, Sen. Schumer removed a waiver provision from his bill, S.1983, in order to reach an accommodation with Brown and his GOP allies.
Brown told the Boston Herald that he was “trying to work” with Sen. Grassley to have him and other Republicans “step back” from their
objections.
“We’re ready to pass it today,” Martin Brennan, state director for Senator Schumer, said of the combined Irish E-3 proposal.

Default Thanks for the fizzle post . . .

. . . in a way it is good . . . . as if the bill goes standalone --it will always be good for us as it would not need a house reconciliation and numbersusa guys would also not have any trouble--however politics may get tricky and can stall things further -- Also, I believe tomorrow is the last day before senate breaks for a week and comes back on 27th Feb, in the meantime circus continues-
Cheers
