I just called Senator Grassley's DC office and spoke to an aid. I was told that the news report was faulty and the hold is still in place.

Let this rumor come to the rest.

Somebody please contact the report and inform her/him of the error.

Might helps him get more clients. The below quoted article appears to be caused confusion, but only thing at least derived is interested parties for and against are focusing on this and the bill could end up for a yea/na vote at some time. In spite of an hold, the bill could still hit the floor.

The Politico Article
[quote=/ww.politico.com]
Grassley only recently lifted a hold on a bill by Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) that would eliminate the employment-based per-country visa cap. A spokesperson for Grassley said the senator “supports legal immigration opportunities and works for measures to prevent fraud in immigration programs.”

My primary focus was on the finding the truth behind the report, which I did. We can share the tasks. If you're too lazy to do something, at least don't make immature posts. If you're looking for a flame war... I shall be very happy to give you one and put you in your place.

Nop. I dont think its true.

I called Grassley's Office and when I mentioned HR 3012 she immediately said, " there is still a hold on it"

Really sorry for the bad news.

We can only hope that the lady didnt know!

Guys, i believe the news of of Senator Grassley lifing the hold is true. When you call the Senator's office, his staff will only tell you the confirmed news, they can't tell you anything which is not officially released.

Some immigration attorney should be able to get information because of their connections and their name.

Use you common sense before making the calls. I see lot of people are making calls.
