Default UPDATE/ACTION ITEM:HR3012: Ask your employer to sign this petition supporting HR3012

--------------------------------------------------------
Update and Very Important Action Item
--------------------------------------------------------
Note - Round 1 of this campaign was completed with HUGE SUCCESS on June 26th, 2012. Second round of the campaign will be initiated soon. Please watch this space.

For past few months, we have been involved in the discussion to find a way to move forward HR3012.

With the leadership of Senator Schumer and Senator Grassley, earlier this week, the amendment to HR3012 was finalized. Every part and every letter of this amendment has been carefully vetted. We have been engaged in the amendment negotiation process right since the beginning and we know that this is a good amendment.

This amendment makes a very good bill even better. The amendment is balanced in a way where a small fraction of employers with more than 100 employees and 15% employees on H1 (L1/J1 is not part of 15%) visa will be audited. Again, the amendment is to audit employers (not employees). The amendment doesn't put any restriction on the employers or employees. We applaud Senator Schumer and Senator Grassley for this amendment.

As we all know, there are some bad employers out there who take advantage of the system. This amendment is designed to root out companies engaged in fraud or exploitation. A large number of coalition, trade groups and the entire large Hi-tech industry (you know all the large companies) is fully on-board with this amendment. The reason being, they are not afraid of audit, they do not have anything to hide, they don't game the system. These 200 companies are the good citizens of the non-immigrant and immigrant visa system.

Now we need your help to reach out to more companies, your employers, to sign this petition to the key Senators.

The deadline for signing this letter is now extended to 26th June.

Letter to Hi-Tech employers (To request Hi-Tech employers to sign the petition)


http://Petition for Hi-Tech employer...ey lawmakers).


200 of the Top companies have already signed up this petition. We need more companies to sign up.

Needless to say, some lawyers or some group of lawyers are against this amendment. We believe that this fringe group has always advocated a system where immigrants are taken advantage off.

I understand that there never existed a civilized society in which one segment did not thrive upon the labor of another. From ancient times to biblical times to now, the so called “silicon age”. The basic tenants of one segment thriving upon the labor of another has not changed much. But this idea is totally contrary to a natural or inevitable phenomenon, a basic human concept called freedom, which is the first step towards innovation. The majority of innovations and inventions in the modern world were created and invented by free men post American Independence. These were men who were free to spend their energies on the own project or change/work for an employer of their choice. If the business of your employer directly or indirectly depends on innovation and technology, then your employer will appreciate you letting them know about these new developments about HR3012.

Some of these immigration Lawyers have chosen to be on the wrong side of history. They want to protect companies gaming the system. This set of immigration lawyers want to to take advantage of immigrants, siding with companies that under-cut US worker and commit fraud.

Its time for us to standup and speak for ourselves and tell everyone that immigration lawyers don't represent immigrant community. Immigration lawyers and their groups only represent their own special interest to design the system to keep more people in limbo for longer so that they can profit from decade long probationary status of immigrants.

Housing market is not about realtors; Housing market is about living the American Dream and home ownership. Likewise, the purpose of immigration system is not for immigration lawyers to pocket more cash. Immigration system is about America, US Employers and immigrants. Its time for us to raise our voice together and say it loud & clear, that immigration lawyer or their group doesn't represent immigrant community.

Ask your employer to stand on the right side of history and support a change for you, a change which has been long awaited. Ask your employer to do the right thing NOW!

Thank You,

Team IV

=========================
Update June 27
Letter is attached.

Thank you everyone for your efforts and continued support.
Please contribute to IV if you have not done so this month. It is mission critical that we have enough resources to pull this bill through.

********************************
OTHER PARALLEL ACTION ITEMS:
********************************

There are thousands of people stuck in green card backlogs, long wait times, retreogresion but are still not aware of H.R3012 -Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act and the benefits it brings by way of fairness, first-come-first-serve approach due to removal of per country caps.
We have to inform all such people about the bill and about IV grass-roots initiatives which have brought the bill close to the finish line now so they can join in the grass-roots efforts.


Please focus on below AIs between June 30th through the 4th of July weekend.

1) Print out - (color printouts much preferred) multiple copies of the following fliers

http://immigrationvoice.org/wiki/ima...help_flier.pdf
http://immigrationvoice.org/wiki/ima...chan_flier.pdf
http://immigrationvoice.org/wiki/ima...i76_flier1.pdf
http://immigrationvoice.org/wiki/ima...r2_updated.pdf

2) Post the fliers - near all grocery stores, temples, theaters and other locations which are frequented by impacted/retrogressed EB applicants who will benefited by this initiative. Use your judgement wisely on where you post the fliers.

3) Caution - DO NOT post the fliers on USPS mailboxes, it is against the law.

4) Talk to your friends/acquaintances - Pick up the phone and call your friends, colleagues, acquaintances who are still not aware of this bill. Explain the importance of H.R 3012 - how it brings long-awaited fairness to the system and reduces wait times drastically for retrogressed EB applicants. Explain how the bill was passed overwhelmingly by the House and is very close to being passed by the Senate and signed into law. There is no better tool than talking to someone to make them aware of the importance of this legislation.

5) Forward Flier - Forward soft copies of the flier to your friends, contacts and have them post it at locations in their neighborhood where it will be effective.

6) Like, Comment positively and share our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter. We are also on Google+ now. IV member donquit has been managing this single-handedly, on your behalf and its time to help him spread the message in social media world.

Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/#!/Support.HR3012
Twitter - http://twitter.com/support_hr_3012
http://twitter.com/Support_HR3012
Google+ - https://plus.google.com/109630183957372098398

We are very close to the finish line and are confident that H.R 3012 will be passed by Congress and signed into law very soon. Let us add more grassroots efforts now and be part of this historic legislative initiative. Immigration Voice requires all affected EB green card applicants - waiting for years to get a green card they deserve - to speak up, join this campaign and be counted.

Time is short. Each person has to do their part, More people contacting the management will only help this effort and show the company that many employees need support from the employer against fraud and unfairness.

Default Sample format for requesting support from HR head

Hello ____________ (NAME OF HR VP/HEAD)

I work within ___________ (Organization Name) and report to ______.

My green card application applied by the company is pending with USCIS since ______.

I’m reaching out to find out if ________ is a member of a trade group called TechNet? The reason being, there is a bill pending before US Congress and if this bill becomes the law, it will benefit my pending application and the pending application of many other colleagues at ______ (NAME OF YOUR EMPLOYER). This bill is H.R.3012 and it passed the House of Representatives by 97% votes. Soon the bill is expected to come for vote in the Senate. H.R.3012 or Fairness for High-Skilled immigration could potentially reduce my green card wait times by many years.

Trade group - TechNet - is running a drive to gather support of large technology companies to sign a petition to US Senate to consider High-Skilled immigration bill called HR3012. Apparently, you could sign the petition supporting the bill even if we are not the members of TechNet. I learned that over 200 large tech companies (some of them listed here - Members | TechNet) have already signed expressing their support for the pending high-skilled immigration bill H.R.3012. It would be great if __________ (NAME OF YOUR EMPLOYER) will consider signing this petition to US Senate.

Here is a link to more information about the petition:

Information about Petition for H.R.3012

Here is the link to online petition:

Online Petition to the Senate

Thank you for looking into this and please let me know if you would like for me to research and send additional information your way.

It applies to any employer who cares for innovation. As we said, the first step to innovation is free thinking and freedom. HR3012 is about Fairness of high-skilled immigration. If your employer is Bio-Tech, this petition is very much applicable.
