@greenappletx Do you have an agenda against IV or immigrants? On other websites you are advocating people not to follow what IV tells them and write their own emails. It's basically telling not to participate in IV action item and dilute the issue of executive order by sending confusing replies that are off strategy.

Either you are an idiot or someone with ulterior motive to damage executive order benefits to all of us. Have you not forgotten how some people recently posted a draft that was off strategy and was anti immigrant . IV had to tell on Facebook page how it was bad and not helpful for our cause.

Default Email to provide feedback to USCIS

Admin and other senior members of IV,

Following up on last week's post, do you have a list of comments that I can send to USCIS to provide feedback on the fixes they are trying to incorporate?

Thanks in advance.

Karthik.

Before every big announcement or action item, IV becomes very quiet, and that is good. I would give them time to come up with the answers.

While we are waiting......

in my daydreaming routine.........

I looked up section INA 204(j) reading between the lines in the USCIS e-mail. Looks like an area to be changed for one of our fixes.

USCIS Question:
"What are the concerns, if any, of Form I-140 petitioning employers with regard to increasing the flexibility of USCISí analysis of INA 204(j) portability?"

INA 204(j):
JOB FLEXIBILITY FOR LONG DELAYED APPLICANTS FOR ADJUSTMENT OF STATUS TO PERMANENT RESIDENCE-

A petition under subsection (a)(1)(D)for an individual whose application for adjustment of status pursuant to section 245 has been filed and remained unadjudicated for 180 days or more shall remain valid with respect to a new job if the individual changes jobs or employers if the new job is in the same or a similar occupational classification as the job for which the petition was filed.

Please do understand experience counts. IV is a non-profit group which works for the betterment of the group. A recent H1 person may not be able to relate to all the issues, what can affect him. IV with 10+ years of experience is a better platform for collective bargain.

Any body can write code. But to write the code and align with the practice followed in an organization needs some experience. Hope you get the analogy.

No one is stopping you from doing whatever you want to do. Please go ahead. There was no reason for you to make a new account and burst out a rant. Best of luck.

Being ' high-skilled professionals' is the real problem why we are all in this big mess.
* Each high-skilled professional thinks they are better than the other and carry BIG egos.

* Each high-skilled professionals is never ready to listen and give respect to an organization that has more experience and knowledge. But each high-skilled professionals is ready to listen to any ABC lawyer and happily give their hard earned money for an advice they can get for free on forums. Sometimes even this paid advice contradicts if you talk on the same issue to different lawyers.

* Each high-skilled professional is very selfish and fragmented. They only think of what is going to immediately help them. they cannot see the big picture. So they are all not united and will never be.

* Each high-skilled professional cannot even articulate themselves in meetings and phone calls. I have been to many meetings and these people who could be good coders or scientists cannot even speak properly. (forget the accent, even the content is so mixed up and confused about the immigration issue).

* Each high-skilled professional has very little knowledge of US politics. They still live in the countries they came from in their mind. Their source of knowledge is just forums. They cannot think beyond that and never want to learn more by taking part in advocacy days and training.

* Each high-skilled professional is living in fear. They create anonymous ID to say something. They will send emails from anonymous email IDs. they will fear coming on TV and newspapers or putting their name out there. ONly .01 % have the courage.

* Each high-skilled professional has very little idea about advocacy and they think writing emails, signing petitions and tweeting will get them greencards. This is very far from reality. Even if we send 1 million unique emails each nothing will happen.

IT IS ONLY IF AN ORGANIZATION THAT REPRESENTS US SENDS EVEN 1 EMAIL, IT WILL CARRY MORE WEIGHT, BECAUSE THE ORGANIZATION 'LOBBIES'. SO EACH OF THEIR EMAIL CARRIES 'POLITICAL CAPITAL'. EMAILS FROM YOU AND ME ARE PLAIN JUNK. SO WHEN IV WILL GIVE US SOMETHING TO COPY PASTE AND SEND IT WILL BE PART OF A STRATEGY. THEY WOULD HAVE ALREADY SPOKEN TO OFFICIALS AND GIVEN THEM A WRITTEN REQUEST. THE EMAILS WE WILL SEND THEM WILL CARRY IV NAME AND IT WILL BE TO AUGUMENT THE REQUEST OF IV TO ONLY SHOW HOW MUCH SUPPORT IV HAS IN THE COMMUNITY FOR THE REQUEST.

Got it?

PS you did not have to create a new ID to post it. Do not fear that someone will sully your annonymous id by posting a question.

Let me clarify why we post such action items: We post action items based on inputs and discussions in DC. Sometimes discussions take time and sometime we get things done without a public action item. Sometimes we talk to other interest groups on different or same sides on an issue. Everything depends on reach and clout. We have been doing this for 10 years and DC knows us well.
Every change happens due to lobbying. If a draft is posted with same content for everyone to email or make a phone call it is part of a well thought plan to support something that is already discussed or in discussion by us in person in DC. Sending individual emails, tweets or Facebook posts will not carry weight or make changes. But if you have an organization to back you up and does lobbying it makes a difference. Every interest group of people in the country are represented and there is a reason for that.

Oh Mr. Pappu, the thing is you having to clarify is there itself a problem. Its a problem because people like Pappu can be the God matter and declare what they want to say while our posts can vanish in thin air. Basically, "Pappu can't explain sala". But I like the fact that you admit "Every change happens due to lobbying" which is what IV is. Its a lobbyist and not a non-profit organization.
