Country cap removal is good, but you guys do not have enough clout to pass HR213. Lobbying needs money…. see how we raised money for the lawsuit ON …… you guys should learn from us.

That's the question for the followers. Not me.

Whoever paid probably has some right to ask questions.

Balma - will you please ask your idol?

Greg is an accomplished attorney. He knows what he is doing, that is why we raised money for him. We trust him. We dont need to ask him anything when he is fighting for us.

Agree that he knows what he is doing. But do you know the that about yourself?

You are joking right?

This whole lawsuit has become a joke. Answering questions on Twitter, disasterously forcing a TRO knowing that you are going to loose and gloating about it on your blog.

Siskind isn't just cheating us, he has done real damage to any hope of fixing this. I don't know of any other lawyers who would behave like this. He should be disbarred.

you dont have to worry about me. Worry about your own future. Didn't you just get bummed by VB? Only Greg can save you. His lawsuit is going to make everything transparent. USCIS will not have anything to hind.

Default Bringing back to the main topic

... of the current action items ..

I am following the script from teh action item thread.. when we call lawmakers now, we are talking only about visa bulletin reversal correct ? So far I have not talked to them over phone on
HR 213 .. I dont think it would be two birds on one stone as they are usually having hard time following one thing .. I think we should do one thing at a time and then go for HR 213. I think once HR213 is tabled then it makes sense to canvass support for that. Meanwhile today or tomorrow we have to have the VB dates brought to current for EB folks.

Seriously!!!! you guys are sying this when he is the only one who is trying to help the immigrant community? He is a pro-immigrant attorney, and you are blaming him for the TRO? Whats next?

Who said transparent is good? Transparent is only good for lawyers and transparency will make sure the visa bulletin drags slowly. I bet this is not his book.

Get your understanding correct or ask your boss. If not first read his book and come back after the second round of funding.

Lawyers are supposed to make money, why would they work for free.?

Now is the time to fight for VB... Admin said somewhere if you use IV name they will also associate with support for HR.213.. So if you called and said you were from IV it should be ok.

Exactly! Hold on to your wallet/purse.

Also, by the time they are done with "extensions, extensions, extensions" and rounds of "funding, funding, funding", I might be current. So keep your prioirity date in mind in your donations.

This is an advice from a legal immigrant to a legal immigrant.

They should make that clear in the beginning, tell us that TRO is unlikely to work and will force the Government into a tough position that they have to defend.

Now this lawyer will run this lawsuit for months... Who knows where this will go and who will win. I think only person who will win is Greg.
