Taking a cue from your $60 metaphor, we couldn't even raise our $21K target in February. I guess a lot of folks paid one time in January.

Taking cue from his/her post with filmy dialogues, I was reminded of Nana Patekar or Sunny Deol.

Lol...I stopped short of writing "We need a dhai kilo ka haath to fall on DHS's jaw"...there I did it now.

Seriously though, the issue is because we are so divided and I hope there is never a time where my comments don't sound 'filmy' anymore.

Good one. You should also say every month "tarikh pe tarikh" (from movie Damini) when they release VB every month.

Here is my filmy dialogue: I hope again that after reading IV comments and comparing with BS comments from the so-called stake holders, more people would see that only immigrants must advocate for their issues and not the damn lawyers or companies. Because if they really cared about giving immigrants their free mobility and fairness in the market, they would have done it by now.

[*]If DHS is keeping the labor certification valid - how are are they doing it? IV is saying (and I agree) that the only way to do it is by interpreting the statue through AC-21, which if they are doing then why are they not providing job flexibility?


DHS in breach of fiduciary duty. Good catch.

There are so many other inconsistencies in the regulation that IV has pointed out. I strongly recommend everyone read the submission from first page to last page for themselves - it becomes pretty obvious how companies and lawyers have twisted the law to suit their interests.

But you can only twist the law so much before the twists become very obvious or something breaks.

When I search regulations.gov using the IV's comments tracking number, I am still getting: "This comment was received in Regulations.gov but is not yet posted. Please contact the agency directly for more information."
Looks like their intention is not right...

Default Newsletter published

FYI: We sent out a newsletter this morning. If you aren't on the mailing list, I suggest signing up for the newsletter - the link is in my signature.

Dear Friend,

As you know the commenting period for the new regulation ended this Monday. Immigration Voice prepared and submitted a detailed comment opposing this regulation along with suggestions on how to fix the regulation. We would like to thank those of you that participated in our last action item by posting comments supportive of our submission. The document is now available for you to view at this link.

We believe this comment will go a long way towards bringing this regulation closer to the law. We also think that the glaring issues in the regulation that our comment highlights, vividly demonstrates how a deep pocketed syndicate of employers and unethical immigration lawyers have influenced the interpretation of the law - to line their pockets and keep you as their indentured servant.

Last month we fell short in our fundraising goals by around 12%. In order to fight against these corrupt interests we need to be disciplined about meeting our fundraising goals - every single month. If you havenít already, we ask you to please sign up for a recurring contribution here.

Thank you,
IV Core Team
Immigration Voice

Also, happy to see that most people find our submission pretty self-explanatory and there are no unanswered questions.

Awesome comments.
For my understanding, how does the comment review process work?
Do we know if the same person who wrote/diluted the rule will be reviewing the comments? Will there be a set of people who review and debate on them and send their recommendations.

My understanding of the comment review process is limited to the initial review.

I do know that lower level people separate out the comments into substantive/non-substantive/positive/negative categories for statistical purposes and further review.

After that, I have no idea what happens to the comments - there are others in IV who know, but I personally do not. I do get your point though - it would be helpful to get that top Immigration Lobbyist from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce out of rule-making process.

Anything we can do to help? Apart from the donations, of course.
