Default let us not despair

Who ever said Victory would be easy

Remember Grassley is Republican, The Senate Majority and its Leader Harry Reid are Democratic

We should have faith in the fairness of the bill

Senator Grassleys Objections are :

- What does this bill do to future immigration flows?
it only makes them fairer by maing it first come first served for employment based immigration. If this means that most of the EB numbers will be from a handful of nationalities, that is because the sills required by the markets are such. Diversity in immigration is preserved by Diversity based immigration where these India and China are disaalowed.

- He concerned that it does nothing to better protect Americans at home who seek high- skilled jobs

Quite the oppoite, it maes it easier for the americans to compete. It is easier for an american worker (and fir the american economy) to compete aggainst an immigrant of foreign origin who is on american soil paying american taxes than it is for the american worer to compete against a worer overseas who works at 10-20% of the pay. Worse, the companies hiring the offshore worker dont pay much US taxes either. The current bottleneck in employment based immigration encourages offshoring to this extent

Now we need to work with the senate majority leader to allow Mr. Grassley to debate/fillibuster, for better or for worse

Default Great Job IV !!

Great to hear the news about the progress of the bill.
I just now signed up for a small $25 recurring contribution.This is in addition to the $100 that I donated last week.

Also, have lined up few of my friends to donate to this good cause.

Thanks

I am trying not to despair but unfortunately, the fact that he placed the hold on such a simple and no extra strings package scares me

one further point :

it does not add a single employment based visa number. To that extent it does not take away any existing protection of the american worker. He is already quite well protected, given the LAbor Certification process, doocumentation of hiring efforts etc...

Don't over react. IV core would have figured this in the beginning itself. From our part let us give all the support that IV needs.
