New Members! Welcome!
Glad to see you here! This is the place of professionals gathered for a great cause. Definitely has NO entertainment contents to download, but this is the place for professionals to discuss our Green Card fate in USA (for high skilled LEGAL immigrants), it's driven solely by it's members.
There are lot of things happening here, let me put a question/answer format so that you all can quickly skim through this.
1. What is immigration voice (IV) organization all about?
http://immigrationvoice.org/index.ph...id=5&Itemid=47 (About us link)
2. Ok, what are the problems they are dealing right now?
IV org is like having IV (intravenous fluid) to the people struck in the backlog of GC processing
http://immigrationvoice.org/index.ph...id=7&Itemid=25 (FAQ link)
Hey did you read how the bill become law and why lobbying is the only means of hope now from the above link?
3. Who are the Core members of the IV org?
Believe me these are one of the people struck in the backlog but wanted to make change in the system in the immigration system with the latest techniques of lobbying and media, etc instead of the traditional way of thinking (When would I get my number)
4. I think I got something now. What is the current issue that my friends are furious about?
ok, Since 12000 people are being part of the org now, I'm sure all the new members (including me) think that something is smoking! Here is the fresh news.
Senate has introduced a bill on immigration from their side called Comprehensive immigration Reform (CIR, you can see people sometimes refer as CIRcus in the forum, because too much is going on in this bill). The House has already come up with it's version of the bill STRIVE act 2007. So you can see info on that too. But let us concentrate on the CIR as it's harming us to the core than the benefits provided by STRIVE bill. Simple example is Extending your H1B is a ding dong bell! sounds funny or threatening!, yes if it's funny then your legal staus is on doll drums buddy! I am serious, not kidding, I swear!......
So this the main area you will find yourself coming often from now on.
The main CIR bill interpretation and review is here; believe me our guys have sweated day and night to grow this thread! I totally respect their hard works!
Changes to the Bill are called amendment! There are amendments going on to this bill and many dedicated members are following the happenings and conveying the results in the forum daily.
So you can see Threads with "Live Updates and today's date". go here and see the threads there with the Live Updates:
There are lot of action plans going on , triggered by the IV core members like Media Drive, Call the congress drive, fund raising drive, faxing senators drive. These all will be in the home page , right side, Blue "Action Alerts" ( see for your self http://immigrationvoice.org/index.php )
o.k want to become a volunteer? there are statewide chapters running. Here is the info
o.k friend! Let me respect your time, and since I am also working from office and want to do justice to my client let us conclude this here! By the way, Don't Forget that for filing the 485 (provided you have got your Labor cleared) the last date is Aug 17th 2007.
Welcome to the new family friend! Appreciate your coming! I am sure you will soon feel at home!
