Default Would you like to speak for all IV members?

We have a media opportunity on a large radio station.

We need a few members, with good speaking skills ready to talk about the plight faced by our members. Make sure you dont talk just about your own issues, even though you may have those issues very dear to you.

Make sure you dont talk about the I140, labor and I485. These technical names are not familiar with american public. Only people like us live, eat and sleep with them everyday. You will need to talk in a more generic language that everyone can understand and still communicate the importance of immigration reform bill for high-skilled immigrants like us.

We want members with compelling stories of their own, represent the plight of all members and represent this organization in media.

If you are interested, post a note on this thread[/b] that you are interested. Make sure to update your profile with your name, email and phone numbers so that we can easily call you.

In your post, briefly describe your story and contact details.
. Anyone who posts a note on this thread will also be called upon in future whenever we have any radio or TV opportuniity.

P.S. No annonymous members please.

Default I will talk

I can quote my personal experience,

Most of my friends are in the same limbo and not able to accept offers.

Given offer by good companies with atleast a 30% increase, like Deloitte consulting, but not able to take the offer.
The company is in need of me and i am not able to join them.

I can speak. I came up with a speech already:

People of America. People of Asia. People of Europe. People of Austrasia:

We, the professional greencard applicants, would like to share with you our agony.

While our greencard paperwork lies unprocessed at the USCIS, we continue to work long hours, every day without complaints.

We pay all our taxes and dues, but we receive no clues.

And for the H1B's? Bees.

Our wives remain depressed at home without work authorization? That's no consolation.

And for the ambitious and bright? Without priority dates current, you see no light.

And for the young, what was told? You will get old and bald.

And for the legal and honest, what is up? Illegals can get away, you just shut up.

How about your immigration attorney? He is certainly making a ton of money.

And renewals of employment authorization, are you ready to renew it every year? It is better if you prepare your pockets, and if you miss it for a day, you are out of here.

Give up and immigrate to Canada? Australia perhaps? All those make me feel the second best.



(to be continued...)
