Guys,

Yesterday I emailed the same to my senators (Tx)... Today I called one of the senator's office and the guy who was talking to me did not have any clue about the issue. So after explaining the issue I faxed the letter again, ofcourse to both senators office.

Still some Senators does not understand difference between H1b issue and GC backlog and how can they understand the Administrative issue like this. But Congress women Lofgren will get reply for her letter from DOS and USCIS.

We need to come up with a letter format, which can be printed and send it to them by mail as well as we need to have web fax with a clear message.

I contacted WI senators office and told about the visa bulletin changes.
Also called WPR to highlight the injustice done to legal immigrants by changing the visa bulletin on the day USCIS was supposed accept the I-485.

Good job pcs !!

I'll take my family to the congressman's office and the documents that you suggested. We can not sit quiet now!

Downloaded news flash from Murthy.com regarding Visa bulletins of 13th June & the screwup bulletin on 2nd July

Above was good enough to convince them regarding the mess & they promised action on their part..

IMPORTANT... I clarified that IT IS A PROCEDURAL ISSUE WITH USCIS

NOT AN IMMIGRATION ISSUE WHERE CONGRESS HAS TO TAKE ACTION

This really made them very comfortable as she said, we keep writing to concerned offices about procedural matters.

I told them that they should ask USCIS to " RECEIVE" aour applications to minimize our finanacial loss and other headache of refiling at a later date



Please note, it is real easy to meet the Congressman as they have local offices may be one mile away from your office or home.

Small towns like mine are great for this effort as compared to big towns. I encourage all of you particularly living in small towns to make this small move, which I am sure can resolve our issue & we will save all the $$$ in refiling & avoid further agony


Since your butt is on fire like mine.... I do not think I need to convince you to act on this


Best wishes

Just please let me know. WSJ news article & Congresswoman's letter adds a lot of muscle in your argument when you meet them

Some can use following letter to email / fax.............................
......
.......


Hi ,

This is not a regular mail.. I on behalf of many others need the support of honest media persons like you, else our faith in American media will be gone for good....

pl. read on...




Illegal action by USCIS causes $ 300 million loss in a single day to Legal & Skilled Immigrants ( Doctors, Engineers & Scientists ) not counting the hardships.


Skilled immigrants like Doctors, Engineers & Scientists have been paying all the taxes, following all the laws of the land and have been stuck in huge wait period of 3- 7 years to obtain green card.

On 13th of June 07, USCIS announced that all these people stuck for years can apply for the green card starting 2nd July 07. Everyone spent 2 weeks & $3000 per person at the minimum towards Attorney fees, medical tests & other unsalvageable direct costs prepared the application and started to send it to USCIS starting 2nd July 07.


In an unusual act of absolute disregard to the hardships and financial loss of these applicants, USCIS announced on the morning of 2nd July 07 that they will not accept any application for green card.

A COMPLETE REVERSAL OF THEIR EARLIER PLOICY ON THE VERY 1st DAY OF THE WINDOW ANNOUNCED BY THEMSELVES.


If nobody takes an action to support law abiding legal immigrants at this time, everyone talking about supporting the laws of the land on immigration issue needs to look into his / her own eyes in the mirror.


What we demand . Talk to USCIS & encourage them to ATLEAST accept the applications sent by these innocent Skilled Immigrants so that they do not suffer at least the financial loss. USCIS can take their own time to award the green card at a later date


ARE WE ASKING FOR TOO MUCH ???????????????????
