One Common Challenge IV faces , as IV lobby's if we are shy of necessary people , donations... the common paradigm we are trying to project is "WE as a community dont care about our delays... Hence Lawmakers might very well think why to care about when members dont dont care about our problem..." with this delays a person with PD of 2004 may end up getting GC after 15 years are more... Dont jump on me... see the numbers there are atleast a million of people in this ship... and when iv organized grass roots not more than some hundreds showed up.. I am not questioning commitment who sincerely couldnt come but atleast NOW when IV proved that we can do something sitting back and refreshing the thread is not an option... Lets come together and support ourself... All 292 guests look no further...

Friends,

I am keenly following HR3012 for last few months from the side lines. Though I would not have any impact of this, many of my friends will be benefitted. I was surprised that many of them do not even know about this even though they GCs are being processing and they are waiting in line for ever now. Few of them became IV members and started contributing.

Now all of them have the question that what is this 'HOLD'? Is this the end of the road for this bill? Same concerns are expressed by other members on this thread. I dont think there is any reason to panic or worrry. Here are my 2 cents as to why we should not worry.

What I see from news post regarding "Hold" the Senator primarily had 2 concerns.

1. This bill is going to increase the no. of immigrants
2. This bill is going to effect the job opportunities for highly skilled american workers in this hard economy.

As far as my knowledge goes both these concerns are unfounded due to following reasons.

1. There is not going to an increase of even a single Visa no. with this bill. Meaning no increase of immigration.

2. The question of loss of jobs for highly skilled american workers does not arise. This bill is not going to change anything. If an American worker is losing job today( which he is not as there is stringent PERM process which is required to show that qualified American worker is not available) the same will continue without this bill also. It is only that instead of qualified candidates waiting in GC line for decades the other candidates from diffferent country which is current are going to take that job. In any case 140000 nos are granted by law and they are continuously being exhausted for last several years. The same will continue with or without this bill.

3. I am sure the people who are working hard to get this bill passed will be able to convince the Senator that the current high rate of unemployment has nothing to do with highly skilled Amercian workers. I was reading somewhere that the rate of unemployment for Bachelors degree holders is only about 3-4 percent( if it is only IT then i am assuming it would not even be 2%). So the high unemployment rate is not a correct indicator to block this bill.

If a layman like me can understand this concepts, I am sure IV would be able to convince any Senator who has concerns and get to remove the hold easily. After all we are in a democratic country where decisions/rules are made based on majority opinion. I am sure American constitution also has ways to handle it.

I request all IVians not to panic or worry too much about this. With the kind of hard work and efforts put in the people behind this bill, I am sure it will be a law soon. It is just the matter of time.

Good luck to all,

This is to let IV know that PayPal re-direction page is failing

Default Doanted to a Good Cause and Great Leadership by IV

I had stopped following any immigration blogs / trends for nearly a year since I saw no hope of getting my GC till my kid graduated from HS (he is sill in daycare ). Fortunately, there is hope now and I have made a small contribution to IV which has shown great leadership in pushing forward with much needed reform and giving a ray of hope to many more like me.

Great work IV. Best of luck and Full speed ahead!
