Default IV applauds Congresswoman Lofgren for leading Congressional letter to DHS and DOS

We applaud Congresswoman Lofgren for leading the Congressional letter to the Administration for fixing September 9th Visa Bulletin.
http://immigrationvoice.org/media/Ho...ions102015.pdf

15 other Members of Congress signed this letter lead by Congressman Lofgren.

Thank you Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren!

Also a big shout out to the IV volunteers across the country who worked hard on a very short notice over the past 48 hours to work with their local congressional offices to make this letter happen.

Default What's the impact?

It's definitely appreciated that Congresswoman wrote a letter in support of skilled immigrants. However, what is the impact of such a letter? - do you see this moving anytime in near future as result of this effort?

Any agency or department receiving such a query from Congress has to respond with adequate data and clarify with information on how they plan to rectify/correct the situation if any.

22 years. Can you please do something about it? IV could only get that letter but if you can kindly use your clout to drive the federal agencies to respond then I promise to give your name to my first born or construct a temple after you and I personally will chant 'Baba Deb-nath ki Jai Ho'

Thanks IV & Rep Lofgren for ur actions on VB reversal. Appreciate ur efforts IV...
But I see Rep explicitly stating action on I140, I don't see they've requested a VB reversal. Instead they've only asked for reasoning behind the reversal. So USCIS can justify their action with the latest 485 demand data...Am I missing something here?

u r missing a lot. If there is a choice between this letter and nothing, what will you choose? Even if VB reversal doesn't happen (because Greg Siskind, with his lawsuit, has already ruined all the chances of anything positive happening on VB reversal), it is important that it been seen as if skilled immigrants have been violated. And Congress members of President's party sending a letter means they want to see something positive happen, including EAD for I140.

What you are missing is the ability to see the holistic picture... where everything is connected and one thing influences the other....

Please "Favorite", "Retweet" and reply favorably to Congresswoman Lofgren's tweet.

She has really gone to the mat for us time and time again. It is important that we show her our appreciation.

Thank you.

Done though the Press Release link is broken in Rep. Zoe Lofgren's tweet.

Isn't there a lawsuit on this. Only the courts can decide the future now. Nothing can be done by others except court.

Murthy claims this done by her with TANA (Members of TANA recently met with Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard ... Per TANA's request, the Murthy Law Firm sent a letter to the congresswoman)

Another attorney looking for a 25K crowdfunding ?

Not only Murthy, but all Immigration lawyers claim that they are driving it behind the screens. Yesterday, an idiot tweeted his support and wrote an article on another Junkie website about I140EAD. That doesnt make them heroes.
If, these lawyers would just shut their mouths with 25K, then I am positive that there would not have been a single AILA lawyer who would have talked now. But thats not what happens. They want to abuse the system and exploit innocent skilled workers.
Be it Murthy, Reddy, Khanna, Joshi, XMen or any one out there, their time is coming to an end.
We will have a bright tomorrow and these pests will die jobless
