Default sent faxes

Hi,
It took me a while since their lines are busy. I sent faxes to my local senators and to those:
Patrick J. Leahy http://leahy.senate.gov/contact.html
Arlen Specter http://specter.senate.gov/index.cfm?...ntactInfo.Home
Chuck Hagel http://hagel.senate.gov/index.cfm?Fu...n=Contact.Home
Diane Feinstein http://www.feinstein.senate.gov/publ...tactUs.EmailMe
John Cornyn http://cornyn.senate.gov/index.asp?f...&lid=1#contact
Harry Reid http://reid.senate.gov/contact/email_form.cfm
Mitch McConnell http://mcconnell.senate.gov/contact_form.cfm
Mel Martinez http://martinez.senate.gov/public/in...TOKEN=66357958
Trent Lott http://lott.senate.gov/index.cfm?Fus...=Contact.Email
Lindsey Graham http://lgraham.senate.gov/index.cfm?mode=contactform

I created a personal 1-page fax based on IV template and asked to include:
1. More immigrant visas for those who are in the queue alredy(employment based)
2. Asked for easy H1B 3-year extensions like in the present law
3. Allow to file I485 without visa numbers
4. Showed how illegals are being rewarded for breaking the laws, and how the legals are being punished by current bill.

Guys, it may take a while, but do e-mails and faxes. The hardest fax to reach was sen. Reid's office.

Go IV go....

If you are able to file gc why do you need this. Only future H1bs need to bother about the this restriction. Corporations or Compete America will lobby to remove H1b restrictions if that creates problem for them.

Folks, but I have a simple question. Is the following provision addressed by IV when contacting the Senators or not ?


Placement of employees at client site(Consulting business practices): Under the proposed bill one cannot place H1B employees at another employer’s site (common in consulting business) whether you are H1B-dependent-employer or not. Today, the law places that restriction only on H1B-dependent-employers. This proposed law applies that restriction of outplacement on all employers across the board.

I now feel that even contributing to the IV was a mistake because you are not taking a broader view of this issue. Please try to include the clauses affecting H1bs also in your letters. Particularly simple technical aspects like renewing H1b beyond the 6 years period is a MUST and one of the things that can be MOST easily achieved if asked for.

That has been there for many years and should continue for a successful H1b program. Please take care of that issue too. I dont see that included in the letter you have prepared to be sent out to all the senators. Please do that urgently. This is a very techinical issue and can easily be campaingned for. Pls dont ignore it.

If the number 3 in the letter has something to do with H1b renewal, pls reword it and make it clear, however, Idont believe its related to h1b renewal atall.

Please include atleast H1b renewal, one good thing about h1 that all of you have/currently are enjoying, to be included as one of your/our major demands. I am not asking for the H1b placement at different sites thing, that might be difficult to campaign for at this point of time, however, renewal needs to be done.
thomachan72, if you have concerns about IV contact us. We take each decision after careful thinking and planning based on certain information and ground realities. Sometimes all information cannot be posted on the forum. Please trust us so that we can help everyone.
Your posts may start reactions from people and the purpose of the drive will be lost.
