Default Not Endorsed by IV: Private Petition to Support SKIL Bill

Hi all,
We [ed: Anindya not IV] have authored a petition supporting the SKIL bill introduced by Senator Cronyn and the other legislations for increasing the number of employment-based green cards. Please read the petition online and sign at:

http://www.petitiononline.com/legalimm/petition.html

There are almost 3000 members in the forum, so there should be approximately 3000 signatures for the petition. More our numbers, stronger our voice is
Thanks
Anindya Chakraborty

Edited to Add:

Just to clarify: this is Anindya's private effort not endorsed by IV. The we in this post is not IV

Please understand that we are working on getting CIR through the door. It may be counterproductive to support an alternative bill (SKIL Bill) at this juncture. We cannot seem to be undermining CIR even as we urge Senators to work our provisions in to it.
Supporting Sen Cornyn's SKIL like amendments to CIR is another matter altogether.

Default Not Endorsed By IV/Private Effort: More signatures needed for online petition

Thank you to all the 33 people who have signed the petition till now. But we need many more signatures. Spread the word- tell your friends, relatives, colleagues to join in and spearhed this movement. Remember, the Senate is scheduled to pass the Comprehesive Immigration Bill on Thursday; but the House is a more difficult hurdle to clear.

This is the time to make ourselves heard.

Thanks and regards

Good effort but the text of your petition is not emphatic , it seems specific to the Advanced Degree holders facing retrogression and does not highlight the plight of millions of legal EB based GC seekers facing retrogression.
You may want to broaden the focus of your appeal.

i doubt if this (online petition and signatures) would be an effective strategy. we need to focus on the webfaxes on IV site and also call lawmakers of our area to be effective.

There is an email format in resources section that you can forward to all your friends who are affected by Greencard process

let us bring more people to this forum .

Default Thank you Papu

Thanks Papu for your suggestion - I think we should employ every strategy available to us and give our full support to any effort that helps our cause. Definitely the webfaxes is a good idea...but we should have more ideas. I am launching a program to call/email all lawmakers in the state of New York, explaining our plight and urging them to take action. Remember in American politics, timing is the essence. We should make our voice heard before the concerned legislation goes to the House for consideration.

Thanks again

Also we should make it sound like its problem in the US Immigration system rather then only Indians / Chinese facing these problem.

Thanks Anindya1234 for your response.
http://immigrationvoice.org/index.ph...d=30&Itemid=36

has the text of the email you can add in the petition. you may also want to add a link to Immigrationvoice.org in that text. This will enable people who are not members of IV site to know about it when they sign the petition.

The drawback with online petition method is that its not reliable enough to make an impact on lawmakers. You only have names of people.

I appreciate your strategy of calling lawmakers in NY state explaining our plight.

Default Signatures are increasing

I just saw there are already 76 signs, but mostly people are not commenting about their problems etc, except few. We should emphasis the problems we face.
