And you are the one getting screwed by Sen. Grassley. You seem to be enjoying getting screwed, guess you don't have a choice, do you?

Default Please have patience with HR3012 and support IV

Hi Guys,

This kind of discussion is not helping anything at all. I know this is a frustrating period right now as the bill is not getting tabled. We are not achieving anything by pointing fingers at each other. The fact is HR3012 will help a lot of people, of course like anything else there will be some bad apples. But this should not distract us from our efforts which will help the larger community in general.

Please do not stop doing IV action items and contributing. Remember what the british taugh us "divided we fall."

I am still having hope and support IV.
I was looking in the US senate site and HR 3012 is not even mentioned in the active legislation. What does this mean?

Active Legislation

112th Congress (2011-2012)
Updated May 16, 2012

U.S. Senate: Legislation & Records Home > Active Legislation

What is the likely chance that HR3012 will come for voting?

What I am getting here, Republicans are in favor of immigration and not Democrats.

I don't have much hope with HR 3012 as i am not seeing any more updates from IV core team. People already donated money to IV including me. I know I will get many negative comments for this but I just want to wake up IV core team.

Default We hope there is a hope for this bill HR 3012

Not a detailed update but just a short message about the fact/status from IV Core team will be really helpful whether there is a chance for this bill to become a law or not ? That input from IV can still keep our hopes alive.
Thanks

IV core team and several of its volunteer members have been awake and burning midnight oil more than regular days in the last few months. There is nothing any public campaign and action item can achieve at this time. It is all now more focused advocacy work. This is why there is no public updates. Getting a bill passed takes a lot of time and effort. Wish it was easy but even to bring into house, we spent one whole year of focused hard work. Publicly on forums people only saw it a couple of weeks of work and action items. The only action item at this time is to support this organization continue this hard work to bring our end goal closer.. Please subscribe to monthly contribution if you have not. We are confident that with everyone's continued support we may we able to post public update for bringing relief soon enough. We all just need patience and faith. Nothing is impossible if there is a will.

I totally agree. Members need to realise that asking for regular updates can only harm our task at hand. Thanks to IVs hard work that my little contribution is worth something, and thats true for all of us. Divided we can not even get the legislation written on a piece of paper with the kind of money we have contributed. Our unity is our strength. We need to respect IVs efforts and support in all ways possible.

On the side note, in response to Pappu's call, I am trying to initiate a recurring contribution. I want to not have to go through Paypal and simply use my credit card. Everytime I am trying to do this, Paypal tries to create an account, and since I have used my credit card here before doesnot let me use the credit card. Am I missing something?

I would suggest creating a paypal account if you do frequent online shopping or payments. You just need to give your credit card info to one website instead of to several websites for online shopping. Most of the websites have option to pay through paypal. Since paypal is primarily into this payment type of business my assumption is they would provide the maximum security in keeping your credit card information. Also when you pay through paypal they sent you a authentication code to your cell phone just to make sure you are the authorized holder of the credit card. Just some info to consider.


IV is working hard though we may not see them post in open forums. Together we can succeed. Only thing rest of us folks can do now is to contribute financially to the advocacy efforts, and promote IV on social network sites such as fb, twitter, etc and create more awareness.

Default The Gandhi Protests Pay Off..........2007

I read this article about the protest in 2007.
Will it be a better option to do some thing similar to this now.

Immigration July 17, 2007, 12:01AM EST
The Gandhi Protests Pay Off
Facing political pressure and legal action, the U.S. government may speed up green-card processing and make more slots available
by Moira Herbst
After two weeks of protests by high-skilled immigrants over a broken promise to expedite the processing of green cards, the White House has approached immigration advocacy groups to work out a compromise. While the talks are ongoing and could still break down, the government is likely to reverse a July 2 decision to refuse more permanent residency applications, and will likely begin accepting them in the next few days. "I think they are determined to fix the situation," says Charles Kuck, president-elect of the American Immigration Lawyers Assn.
