Default What about H4 holders

May be this is already discussed, but can each vote be counted as 2 because for every H1B there are about 2.5 visa counts. If not, can we ask these voters to involvel their respective spouses as well. !!!

Are you interested in filing your I-485 before your priority date is current??

Then please vote on the survey, ask your spouse to vote also, and check back to keep yourself updated with the progress.

The deadline to push forward with the initiative is April 30th and the goal is 5000 votes. We only have around 1360.

For those who were looking for any action item, here is one for you.
We need advocacy day participation from IV members from these states:

IN, KS, AR, NM, NV, UT,LA, AL, TN,NE, WI, RI, NH

485 filing is part of the agenda for advocacy day. All you have to do is come to DC. If you cannot come to DC for some very important reason then please consider consider contributing for the event. We have not even met 50% of our budget goal for this event. This would mean scaling back some of our plans.

Bumping up again. Time is running out for us to get enough folks to work with IV for this fix. Time for us to decide whether we want to push USCIS/DHS for this fix or wait endlessly to file I-485. Even EB2 movement has slowed down now as per monthly Visa Bulletin. WHile we work in parallel for legislative fixes (IV Advocacy Day), we HAVE to push for this USCIS admin fix.
Please use flier on the first post of this thread as well as original I-485 filing thread and spread the message about this initiative all over the place!!!!!!
All 1400 members who participated on the survey/poll have to become volunteers for this initiative and get at least 5-10 people to join in.

As suggested by several members on this thread, IV has set a goal of April 30th, 2011 to determine if there is even enough appetite within the EB community to proceed with this USCIS Admin Fix initiative or not.

Original Thread with Voting/Survey -
http://immigrationvoice.org/forum/fo...ml#post1974292

As we know the initial goal was to use this survey to determine how many members will be benefitted by I-485 filing without current priority date. Rough calculations using PERM data showed that at least 50-70K folks are waiting to file I-485 since July 2007 (around 5K-6K out of this are those with PDs prior to June/July 2007 missed the July 2007 boat).
So far we have had around 1200 such members respond. We need to see support of at least 5000 members in order for IV to launch the public action items. These action items include, but are not limited to, writing en-masse (i.e. in thousands) over 2-3 weeks to several concerned departments about the need for this USCIS administrative fix. Few other very interesting proposals/ideas are also being considered. All we need is our folks to BELIEVE that this initiative is worth investing in.

The IV forum is the best and only place for the impacted EB community to gather and that is why the number of votes on the survey is a great indication of our frustration and motivation to work with IV for this important admin fix.

So, we now have a Deadline and an Objective. It is up to our impacted members to decide on whether to still stick to silly excuses (why should I become a member, why should i vote on survey etc etc.) or DO something about getting this admin fix. It is surprising that we are not more desperate for this fix and are not convincing and pushing IV harder and harder to start working with USCIS to allow I485 filing with current PD (and all the benefits like EAD, AP that go with it).
Are we more comfortable with the alternative - Waiting endelesslly to file I-485 (at least 2-5 years for post July 2007 folks from any category), keep depending on H1B extensions in an uncertain immigration scenario where H1B RFE's, rejections, visa denials due to "admin processing" etc are on a steep rise? The choice is ours to make.
As a final reminder - please act and convince your friends/colleagues to participate in this initiative and send ivcoordinator@gmail.com the details requested below.
Please keep following and participating on the I485 thread to show your desperation for this fix.

Our USCIS admin fix efforts go in parallel with IV advocacy efforts (Advocacy Event on April 4th, 5th, 2011) and every member should participate in BOTH to help get ourselves out of this situation.

How to spread the message about this I485 filing initiative?

You will be contacted once IV starts working on action items (may be after 04/30 deadline).
