If you explain him why 213 ia good and ask for the co sponsorship, office would understand what you are asking since they would have co sponsored many other bills till date.

3. Loudly announce on the forums and FB state chapter group that you have a meeting on such and such a date. Ask for people to join you and experienced IV members to connect with you, give you handouts, talking points etc.
4. If no one joins you, it's ok, go by yourself, it's not the worst thing in the world. If you don't get the support you need from IV (documents/talking points etc), please feel free to be obnoxious and berate us every day in the State Chapters and publicly on the forums. We don't mind obnoxious people who produce results. We all are desperate people who work very hard on this and are obnoxious ourselves. We don't mind obnoxious who are willing to work hard - infact we like all people that work hard - especially the obnoxious ones because they work the hardest.
I will post on FB.

Smile I140 EAD and AP

Hi hil3182,
Any thing we can do for the following rules, one is I140 EAD and other one is Visa Waiver Permanent Program.

http://www.reginfo.gov/public/do/eAg...&RIN=1615-AC05
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is proposing to modernize the immigrant visa system by amending its regulations governing the adjustment of status process and employment-based immigration. Through this rule, DHS proposes to allow certain approved Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker (Form I-140) beneficiaries to obtain work authorization, clarify the meaning of portable work authorization, and remove unnecessary restrictions on the ability to change jobs or progress in careers, as well as provide relief to workers facing lengthy adjustment delays.

http://www.reginfo.gov/public/do/eAg...&RIN=1615-AB97
The American Competitiveness in the 21st Century Act (AC21), Public Law 106-313, was enacted in October 2000, along with two other laws, the Visa Waiver Permanent Program Act (VWPPA), Public Law 106-396, and a law to increase the fee for certain H-1B petitions, Public Law 106-311


Thanks

I know that we have met Sheila Jackson. But irrespective of whether we met or not, we need to meet all who have not cosponsored yet

Can someone post link to NJ state chapter of IV? I couldn't find it on Facebook.

It is a shame that we have two house of reps from my city which has very heavy Indian population, and none of them are co-sponsors for HR 213. Time to bother those 2 gentleman.

There is no "magic number". Each additional sponsor translates into pressure on The Speaker and Committee Chair to bring the bill to a vote.

You won't know how many it takes until its done.
