4.It does not remove dependents.

I really don't see HR 213 changing the situation much.

My dear friend. If HR 213 becomes law, we just get removal of per country limits. All others you are talking about are in I-d Act of 2015 ie Senate bill S.153
Donot wait further. Just donate and do your part.

It depends on your immigration situation and what you want. No bill language is set in stone when introduced. The language changes a lot when it goes through several steps. Amendments that are good and bad are added. Advocacy is a process where first you have to get many people to cosponsor or support the bill. Then you have to protect it and add amendments to it. So if you donate and strengthen Immigrationvoice I am sure they may be able to add at least an amendment of one of the 4 things you have listed. They did that in the past to a bill and if the opportunity is right, there is no reason why they will not do it again. All 4 are part of IV agenda and they keep finding the opportunity to add in any bill that moves. That is how the lobby beast is.

In the transition time, 85% will be FIFO and within 15%, not country can get more than 25%. So, India should get 85% in the first year.

Dear Admin,

People on the other forum are sending twitter messages to lawmakers. Is that a good idea?

First of all posting on Twitter is NEITHER advocacy nor a campaign. But it sure is waste of whole lot of time. If things would happen just by posting on twitter and FB then Washington DC would be a dead town, everyone would just sit at home to tweet and click FB like button. And no one would have to do anything else. So please don't get mired into false narrative by using phrases like "Twitter campaign" or "Facebook Advocacy", these are oxymorons.

Every tool has its relevance. The primary relevance of Twitter and FB is to create awareness for organizing grassroots to participate in REAL ADVOCACY. If you are unable to convert social media into real action then its waste of time. When social media engages in grassroots to participate in REAL ADVOCACY, go to Washington, find a champion for a cause, create a bi-partisan agreement, get support from other groups (which is hugely important), shop for cosponsors, do the same thing in the other chamber of Congress (Senate/House), get committee leadership onboard, get majority party onboard to bring the bill for vote, get the support of minority, then and only then the bill can pass. It will take time, because in any democratic process it takes time. But if people think an issue is important and thus they are able to endure the process, then eventually things will happen because the system actually works. There are no shortcuts and posting on twitter and clicking like button on FB might be easy, but it is the biggest waste of time if it cannot translate into real daily action on the ground.

Even when working on any idea with the administration, like any Admin Fix, it never ever happens in 1-2 meetings things start to roll. One has to go time and again, advocate for the position, presenting different arguments, responding to their questions, providing data to support your arguments. Creating some FB page, talking with each other, patting each others back but with no added real action on the ground, or, posting on twitter and re-tweeting over and over again, all that is waste of time if it is not timed and coordinated with frequent real action on the ground. That is the reason we keep requesting members to stop wasting time in online forums and call your local Senator/Congressman office to setup a meeting. Or, come to Washington to meet with your Members of Congress.

BTW, what twitter post are you talking about? Who is posting it, where?

Is this Sen. Grassley stall of HR 3012 redux?
It is easy to dismiss everything because someone or the other will always be opposing every bill. We have to keep working diligently to find ways in which the political climate is right to get our bill pass through Congress. None of these Senators have policy level opposition to removal of per-country limits. Their opposition was based on political view of overall immigration, their opposition was not over the policy matter on removal of per country limits. So it has to have a political solution and political landscape is dynamic as it keeps shifting. If we keep pushing for our bill, with shifting political landscape there is always a possibility that the window of opportunity could open. We just have to be ready and be on lookout for such opportunity. Who knows, maybe one of these Senators might decide to support or rather sponsor bill to remove per country limits.

One cannot overcome political hurdles with policy arguments. At the same time, one cannot sit back and wait for all the political problems in the world to resolve before starting to work on any bill. For if we do, then we might as well wait for 1000 years and will still not have political problems settle down by itself. Every issue or bill has political hurdles. We just have to find ways to overcome without having a fatalistic outlook. The chances of overcoming these hurdles increase each time we attempt to push for the bill. That’s just a statistical fact.
