Default Senator Gregg Letter to DOS about July VB Reversal

Hi Guys,

I send a letter to senator Gregg(NH) Last week about July Visa Bulletin reversal by DOS and how its going to affect all individuals who filed their 485 based on original Visa Bulletin published by DOS.

I Just got a call from Senator's office. He is sending a letter to DOS today or tomorrow asking about July Visa Bulletin reversal.
I will post DOS reply as soon as I hear back from senator's office.

Moral of the story is time for action when iron is hot.

Thanks!

Very nice job. I sent 3 letters. Sen Clinton, Schumer and repr. Engel. I sent them via certified mail and they reached their DC offices on Monday. I am waiting for a reaction on them.

Default Send letters to all Pro-immigrant senators.

Send letters about July VB reversal by DOS to Hillary Clinton, Barrack Obama,
Edward Kennedy, John Sununu and Judd Gregg.
Only Judd Gregg's office replied positively so far. Gregg's office told me they are recieving same complaints everyday. Thus, Gregg sending a query to DOS.
They asked for my 140 approval notice copy which I faxed this morning.

Thanks!

Nice job guys, but I have a question. If they reverse the July VB and don't reject any July I-485 apps and hold onto them instead (which I believe is what they are doing at the moment anyway) how will that affect things? They still can't approve any more until 10/01/2007 because they don't have any more numbers to allocate to them, and I don't know what would be involved to increase the visa numbers - I'm guessing more than a quick decision by the director Emilio Gonzalez.

We'll atleast get the interim benefits like EAD, AP etc.. That's what most of us are hoping for as the immediate relief.

But, your life will be easier after 180 days of I-485 adjustment application..

I couldn't help chuckling seeing Ted on the list of pro-immigration Senators. Ted is pro-illegal immigration and pro-diversity visa. I dont think he cares about us.

Add Cornyn and Cantwell to the list.
