Did you not read "Extraordinary Circumstances' i.e. where employee can show economic hardship, exploitation by employer etc."

In a twisted way they are to turn this into a humanitarian issue like immigration benefits for victims of domestic violence for example.

Please dont forget to watch how the admin is channeling resources. I wonder what would have happened today if IV was not fighting it out on public space.
Be it DHS conference, forums or twitter IV is the only voice of backlogged skilled immigrants. And I dont think this is difficult to agree

My apologies that this will not be aired on Big Boss9. You will have to spare a few minutes to discover IVs facebook page and witness it there. Unlike Big Boss 9 there wont be any ads or anything entertaining but plain sorrows and grieves of skilled immigrants. Sorry IV doesnt spice up things

I like this new strategy (if it was a strategy) to keep distance from immigration lawyers.

I am glad that moderators and admins are using such language directed at lawyers. The visitors on this forums and IV volunteers are not kids and I honestly think your language is suitable for this audience.

If it were not a civilized discussion, it would have been held on twitter where folks block you for asking questions. I wonder how many were blocked by them

I am sure you appreciate guest blogs on trade associations only created to depict that it was the organization's voice but not an individuals voice with malicious intent

We all have problems with immigration lawyers. If you have appreciation for these immigration lawyers please feel free to chant their bhajans 'in your own way' but not here

So what is this..... "wait wait you can't fire me, because I quit....." type of thingy

Get real. If you oppose the core belief of any organization, you don't need to resign, you are fired. At that point, it doesn't matter as it is too late to say - wait wait you can't fire me, because I quit

Dear Aman and Puneet - It is with regret that I have to request my removal from your Board of Advisors. Iíve really enjoyed working with IV over the years on its advocacy efforts and have found participating in many of your teleconferences assisting IV members with their immigration questions to be rewarding. But after seeing this passage in Amanís email advocating on behalf of amending HR 3012 (a bill I strongly support, by the way) I can no longer in good conscience be associated with the organization.

Unfortunately, some immigration lawyers and their advocacy groups in DC are against this amendment. We believe that this fringe group has always advocated a system where immigrants are taken advantage of.

Immigration Lawyers have chosen to be on the wrong side of history. They want to protect companies that are abusing the system. This set of Immigration lawyers want to side with companies that are under-cutting US workers and committing fraud.

Itís time for us to standup to speak for ourselves and tell everyone that immigration lawyers don't represent immigrants. When it comes to advocacy, immigration lawyers and their groups only represent their own special interest to design the system to keep more people in limbo for longer so that they can pocket more money through renewals and extension of applications for visas and work-permits while immigrants wait forever in their green card process. A large percentage of these immigration lawyers have a vested interest in keeping the immigration process slow and confusing. They will oppose streamlining or simplifying the process that would help employers and employees.

I think the IV position on the Grassley Amendment is really short sighted and will be deeply regretted over time. But I would not quit over a policy difference. I just canít sit idly by and listen to my brethren Ė people that have dedicated their careers to helping immigrants (many being immigrants themselves) Ė painted as being greedy and anti-immigrant. I am personally insulted by this form of defamation and it strongly resembles the type of attack we usually hear from rabid anti-immigrants attacking us for advocating on behalf of immigrants. That this email originated from an immigrants rights advocacy group is simply shocking. You say you are only talking about ďsome lawyersĒ but I can tell you that the immigration bar sees this as an attack on all of us. The letter has circulated like wildfire across the immigration bar and Iím afraid IVís reputation has been seriously damaged with a group that is composed of people that are naturally allied with most of your positions. And in Washington, finding allies is necessary in the long run to achieving anything. Itís also unfortunate because lashing out and defaming the immigration bar was unnecessary. You could have simply taken your position and just stated that you disagree with other groups, but stand by your decisions as representing the best interests of your members. Instead, youíve hurt IVís chances of finding friends in the future to help on issues that will be of concern to you.

Finally, Itís also odd that you have a Board of Advisors comprised of a number of immigration lawyers you consider to be trusted enough to include on a board of this sort, but we had to learn about your attack on immigration lawyers from other lawyers who heard about it online.

I wish the two of you well.

His waterboys have abandoned him now. Nobody retweets his bull$$$ anymore. His fanboys have turned against him and asking why AILA didn't ask for EAD-140 during the conference.

Pretty much, he is screwed and lost all credibility. He may need to rewrite a new version of this book - The Lawyer's Guide to Marketing on the Internet

Why should there be a book about The Lawyer's Guide to Marketing on the Internet?

The answer is in 1 line. Tell the truth and uphold your oath, and don't engage in exploiting immigrants. Why do we need a book to say this 1 line? Is that what he wrote in that book? What a waste of ink and paper.
