Got a letter from a Member of Congress in response to our web fax campaign...
 
I got a letter from Zoe Lofgren's office, who is a Member of Congress representing California 16th District, in response to one of our web faxes on H-1B cap and GC backlogs. Below is the complete text from the letter -- it's heartening to know we are on their radar at least!

Now that we got their attention, is there anything we should do to follow up on this now?

================
Thank you for contacting me. I appreciate the time you took to explain the impact of the H-1B visa cap and the "green card" backlog on U.S. employers.

I understand well that the success of U.S. companies depends on highly educated and talented U.S. citizens and foreign nationals.

What we need is thoughtful reform that supports the American economy and allows American companies the benefit of the "best and brightest" from around the world.

As you know, the Republicans now lead in the House of Representatives, Senate, and White House. As such, Republicans control what bills and amendments are considered in committees and on the floor of the House of Representatives. They have taken no action for reform but have proposed legislating on a money bill in violation of House rules. Should Senate Judiciary Committee's H-1B proposal come before me in the House of Representatives, I will certainly consider your point of view.

Again, thank you for contacting me. Please do not hesitate to contact me again if can be of further assistance to you or your family.

Sincerely,
Zoe Lofgren
Member of Congress

Lofgren
 
She is already a big supporter of hi-tech legal immigration. Its good to receive a response from legislators.
