I gathered 22 letters from my colleagues, friends and family requesting the Congressman to support HR 213
I memorized all the Republican Congressman's names who co-sponsored HR 213 and I mentioned their names and also Luis Gutierrez name when I was making my pitch.
It is important to not talk about H1B's, startup companies, entrepreneur visas or illegal immigration. Focus only on HR 213 and not even Visa Bulletin Reversal.
Be sure that your conversation is not side tracked and always make sure that you are in control

Trust me, the folks at the Congressman's office are friendly and very informed. They fill you up and sometimes say many things that add up.
Way to Go ! Bhishma..

Is there a handout already prepared by IV? I have submitted my own taking data from my county and local companies and how that would help grow the overall economy.

Can someone share the handouts that IV has ?

That said, please PM me your email address, I will send out some material to you tonight. It should be pretty self explanatory.

Thank you for stepping up.

Hi, this is Aemon, new member of this forum. Hope everyone is fine.

I have read the document completely, few options make sense and few doesn't. But what I didn't understand here is, title of the document was "EAD for Approved I140 beneficiaries". So in what way undocumented aliens are related to this EAD? I scratched my head to find what's the relation, can anyone help me in understanding this?

I think the lawyers would know the right answer as this issue is complicated and not something us legal folks would know about in our law-abiding world.

Read footnote 2 on page 2. It seems they are talking about people who are not eligible to file 485 due to overstaying a visa or entering without inspection, but have an approved I-140, can benefit from Option 1. Again, I am not a lawyer but I know there are people overstaying here since the 90s who may actually benefit from this EAD based on their approved I-140 without the need to leave the U.S.

So do you think that's a good thing to do? If overstayed aliens/undocumented also gets EAD don't you think there is a chance of lawsuit filed against this action?

Since you asked me, I have no opinion on that issue.

Default Changing Political Atmosphere

We never know what future political atmosphere will bring, may be if Mr. Trump will come, he is against of H1B.

May be USCIS still have opportunity to make money out of us via EAD for I-140 approved

Let see.

There is also background activity whereby immigration lawyers and companies are working very hard to derail EAD for I140 fix. They are trying all sorts of ways to derail or water down this fix that we have worked for years.

Immigration lawyers and companies want this fix to be only applied to those with 'Extraordinary Circumstances' i.e. where employee can show economic hardship, exploitation by employer etc. They are trying to water down so no more than 600 people in an year would be able to benefit from this fix.

We ask that you NOT engage in any online petitions. Online petitions are distraction and diversion from real effort. Often times these petitions are started by immigration lawyers as diversion from real advocacy. Online petitions severely hurt our efforts. Again, please DO NOT engage in online petitions.

We will soon publish action items and we ask you to actively participate in these actions items.

Here is the link to FB Post for this information/announcement.
https://www.facebook.com/Immigration...25332340866323

Thank you

Team IV
I was wondering if Admin provided any specific action items pertaining to this upcoming announcement. I was just wondering if I missed it.

Default No action items

No action items have been announced yet for the I140 EAD rule. We'll all have to wait for them to announce the action items& follow them once they are announced.

The Hill's interpretation of this Memo is that its a ploy to provide EADs to undocumented, circumventing DAPA injunction. They have linked IV's document as the source :-)

Would it make sense to edit the first post and mention clearly that the articles that are linked are a lie ? Even if undocumented get the EAD, they can contribute taxes but are not eligible for benefits.

Also, how come every immigration article on every major website has a disproportionately high number of comments? I have a feeling there is an army of paid trolls who are writing these comments to rile up people. Only thing I don't know is who is paying them. Trump maybe ?
