Glad to see ppl still thinking positive after CIR 2007, HR 3002, and now this this current fiasco.
We all live our lives on hope, hope of a better tomorrow. Any amount of failure of the Congress or the time it takes to be current cannot take away our happiness or our desire to live happy. You can try for all you want to demoralize us, you anti-immigrant moron. But it will happen in the end.

For the record the immigration bill is not dead.

You are either immature kid who cannot see beyond priority date or you are some anti-immigrant moron. Either way looking at the history of posts, you are not much liked around here.

That is freakin' hilarious... ...especially so because the analogy makes no sense whatsover!!!!!!

Above report is perfect example of yellow journalism. Report is trying to convey that legal community is more happier to see house bill rather senate bill. Even they have audacity to write blatant lies like this

"Had the Senate version been adopted by the House and made into law, it would have created deep rancour among legal immigrants waiting for permanent residency." REALLY!!!
"
"EB3 category despite having graduate degrees from US universities would have to, according to some immigration lawyers, wait for 20-30 years to get a green card" WTF!!!
No Facts but quoted some immigration lair although both bill are available online.

This report is showing on TOI international website edition to create misinformation among Indian community to erode their support for Senate version.
I would request immigration voice to send formal resent to TOI editor for publishing false report behalf of Indian legal immigrants and reiterate our support for Senate version. Although many people like me already sent our complaint individually.

Default Reply from my state senator

Admin,

I have recieved a reply from IN senator Joe Donnelly in response to contacting his office on H.R. 2131 issue. Let me know where I can forward his reply.

I was also planning to send him a reply by referring to this article in NYT - http://www.nytimes.com/2013/07/16/us...icks=true&_r=0.

Let me know if you agree.

ImmigrationVoice.org - Advocacy -- Please Oppose H.R. 2131

Dear Friends,

This is a time sensitive action item. In the background, there is a systematic campaign to undermine the effort for more EB green card numbers. Some of our employers, including some of the tech companies are engaged in pushing for more temporary visas only. These employers are also working to hurt their employees who are oblivious to what's going on behind the scenes.

Please treat this action item VERY SERIOUSLY. Our concern is that with no meaningful green card increase in the House bill, the Conference report will end up with almost no green cards for skilled immigrants and significant increasing temporary visas.

Some estimates suggest that there are over 1 million people waiting in EB green card backlogs. House bill H.R. 2131 proposes increasing temporary visas without proportionately increasing green card numbers. So much so that H.R. 2131 will create 10 times bigger backlogs of 10 million people. Here is a summary of SKILLS Jobs Act H.R. 2131 - http://immigrationvoice.org/media/SK...ct_Summary.pdf

Please click here to send a message to your member of Congress that no green card increase will hurt U.S. economy. Ask Congress to set the priorities straight, not to focus on temporary visas, rather focus on green cards for tax paying law abiding highly skilled immigrants -

ImmigrationVoice.org - Advocacy -- Please Oppose H.R. 2131

Thank you,

The whole purpose of meeting them is to convince them and change their opinion. If he had said he will support us, then what's the point of meeting. Maybe he can stay neutral and still the bill can pass or he can support piecemeal. Why don't you go and convince him? You can also ask him if he has any idea when house is going to take this bill and post the update on the forum.

Then why are you emailing your congressman and trying to meet? If everything you have been posting is negative and you are telling everyone 'pack your bags' ' game over' ?

You need to make up your mind and have clarity in your thinking. Either you pick up and leave or if you want to stay put, stop getting distracted and try to meet your congressman, Company CEO and get them to do something for your pain.

waitingnwaiting: You are wasting your time with this guy. He is not going to do anything other than just complain and post only negative news articles.

If you are EB3 he will ridicule for you for not being current. If you are EB2, he will ridicule you for being current. If you ask him to call congressman, he will say that will not change anything because the bill is dead. But he will hang around posting negative comments/response to anything positive/encouraging about calling or meeting with Member of Congress / company CEOs.
