Action Item - Seeking support for more Green Cards to reduce backlogs
 
------------------------------------------------------
URGENT TIME SENSITIVE ACTION ITEM
------------------------------------------------------

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 -

Yesterday only my friend told me that all the consulting company employers are meeting regularly and lobby Republicans across US to only increase H1B and not GC.

Thanks for IV to make me part of this AI.

This congress (and the last year one too) seems to be far worse than our current Lok Sabha ... intend something and do something different !

I thought online petitions and randomly sending emails doesn't work. Why this change of heart IV??

This action item is not an online petition and it is not a random email.

Click on the link and see that page.
Also, read what is being sent. It has IV name in it. Unless something is heavily supported by boots on the ground and a reputed organization that invests in advocacy, it will not work.

Get more involved with IV to understand how advocacy works. There are several volunteers working everyday and meeting lawmakers. You will get better insights into the overall strategy.

Completed the action items for my wife and I.

Is there a way to see how many of us completed these action items? The increasing number will definitely motivate us to do more.
