Default Meet with Senator Schumer

I am thinking we should setup a meeting with Senator Schumer or atleast his staff involved in immigration. If we can get sufficient members from Newyork we can try scheduling a meeting with them in Newyork city. I am sure we should be having a lot of folks from the Tristate areas who can take a day off and attend. it generally takes between 3-4 weeks to setup an appointment which should give us ample amount of time to organize and confirm the members who are willing to attend.

Any thoughts

Default Thanks

Thanks Windycloud.. I guess when we have close to 10 people, we can have brief conference call/meeting and narrow down on agenda items . Also once we have a team in place, we can ask IV for suggestion/direction.IMO all the state teams should follow standardized formats.

Any thoughts?

I agree.

I think the IV's newly proposed agendas are a very good starting point.

Eliminate per country quotas
Increase over-all annual visa numbers to 450,000
Allow the recapture of 215,000 unused Employment Based (EB) visas numbers from previous years lost due to bureaucratic delays
Exempt Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) graduates of accredited U.S. colleges and universities from the visa cap
Exempt family members of EB immigrants from the visa cap
Exempt (current and future) homeowners from visa cap which also remedies the root cause of current economic woes by addressing the foreclosures and excess supply of homes on the market.

Default # of people

Pappu,
In your opinion do we have to be less than certain # of people when we go to meet in order for meeting to be effective?or More the better?

I've mailed NJ and NY state chapter leads. If we are 3-5 in count then that will suffice to convey the message and make a good presentation.

Lets have the call tomorrow. Senator Schumer might be back in Washington once the Summer recess is over by Mid-August.Hopefully we can call his office this week or early next for an appointment.

Thanks.

I am not quite close to NY. So wil not be able to make it (I wish I could).

As for Agenda, shall we go baby steps --

First request for visa recapture which I believe can be done as administrative change (no law need to be passed)

Also, how about allowing to file 485/EAD/AP with an approved 140 even if PD is not current. It will be processed when PD is current. This is again an administrative change not requiring a change in law.

This will allow less fortunate like us to avail AC21 6 months after filing 485.

Great initiative. Greatly appreciated if you could start the same discussion on the tri-state chapter yahoogroup. Certainly the chapter leads can guide and train folks who would be meeting the lawmaker. We need to present the IV proposals very clearly. Just few folks is good enough. Folks in NJ can schedule meeting with their lawmakers.
