Default E3

E2 will flyby irrespective of 3012. E3 wil not unless there is a standalone E3 bill comes from house. Standalone E3 in senate was now added to 3012. We will swim or sink with E3. Schumer & Brown very well know that E3 has to be clubbed with 3012 since they dont know how much support it has in the house. Give it a few more weeks, things will be clear.

Thumbs up It is HR3012

Indian IT industry would have asked Sant Singh Chatwal to talk to Sentors for more H1/L1 visas. They don't care much about HR3012. But Schumer is indeed referring to HR 3012 in the following quote from the article. Sant Singh Chatwal who is oblivious about HR 3012 may have thought that they were referring to H1/L1

In context of what is happening right now, the whole article seems so out-of-place Earlier Sen. Reid's said that he won't allow any other immigration bills w/o DREAM Act, and now Schumer is saying that Reid will get it passed very fast.
Thanks for posting the article.

Quote:
"I am working to try and change the immigration laws so more Indians can come (to the US). One of the things that Harry and I care a lot about is changing the visas. So more Indians can come here to travel," Schumer told PTI after the meeting.

"the visa laws are a little bit too restrictive so we are working on a bipartisan bill. Harry Reid is going to try to help us get it passed very fast."

they might be working for a new bill regarding L1/H1, not 3012, from the context itself.

Let us pray and hope for the best.

This is a self serving meaningless article, could possibly be paid for by Chatwal. Its only goal is to show that Chatwal is "so powerful" that he can get more visas for Indians, which is not going to happen. The real world is far from this myth. Most likely Senator Reid and Schumer went to a fund raiser where other IT shop owners were present. Senators - The wizard of the words - said things in a politically correct language. But Chatwal and others IT shop owners (most not very highly qualified) only heard what they wanted to hear. And ever unreliable PTI, as always filed a false/factually incorrect report with the headlines - "more H1/L1" visas. Fundraisers like Chatwal raise money from IT shop owners on a promise to get something in return. So these people have a need for this misinformation.

Senator Reid and Schumer said more visas for travel. But for these guys there is only 1 kind of visa - H1/L1. Green cards are also visas but how would these guys and reporters at PTI know? IT shop guys don't make money from green cards and Chatwal can't collect money/raise funds for green cards. So they just wanted to hear "more visas" = more H1s/L1s.

Often out of context and pandering Indian print media is unreliable. Senator Reid and Schumer were trying to say that "more Indians can come here to travel" and "wants more Indians coming to America and spending in the economy" and "Mr Reid said he would also like Indians to visit Las Vegas for business". All this means more visitors visas and it makes sense, see below-

US visa norms ease for Indian tourists, students - Times Of India

AND - "we are working on a bipartisan bill. Harry Reid is going to try to help us get it passed very fast" probably refers to HR3012.

But PTI/NDTV, possibly pushed by Chatwal, changed the subject and entire meaning of the conversation to wrongly imply "more H1/L1s for Indians", which is not going to happen, understandably for the right reasons.

H1 numbers should not be increased and L1 must to be put to check. I work for Accenture and there are just too many L1s, most of whom are not treated fairly.

Default Oil Subsidies

Looks like nothing for next 2 days as they will be doing political posturing for next 2 days discussing a bill that has no chance of passage, third time in the last one year. This is insane, it is something to consider postal reform or another bill that deals on jobs or deficit. This is politicians at their best anywhere in the world
