I have to agree. That's the bazooka Ron Hira holds. You ask anything. It does not matter. Ron will tallk about it along with merely saying yes/no to other questions.

Folks who think that Ron supports some of this and that are being naive.

I just made a point about me training American workers. I also made a point about purchasing a home if I had a green card.

Question was:
Currently more than 150,000 applications for highly skilled employment based green card applicants of Indian IT professionals are backloged. Many of them are waiting for 4 to 10 years to get their greencard. There is a thing called country limit of 7% on each country out of mere 140000 employment based immigrant visa quota for every year. Because of this unfair per country limit Indian applicants are suffering as thousands of unused visas have been wasted every year. Can anything be done by the Obama administration, (without the need for legislative change) to remove the per country limit on annual quota?
The panel basically agreed on relaxing the country limits for some period. For detailed discussion, listen to archives after 1 hour.

Almost felt like Ron was turned Although I do believe there is genuine common ground.
Making our points for us.
I rather messed up the last sentence. But happy with it in the end.

Good job Mark, you clearly swayed the topic off from Rons tiresome repeated rant

Nah you were good all the way along although you didnt get too many chances, but you did present in a very well professional and lay man way.

THanks MArk

Mark,

You did present our case very well. I remember Kojo mention the topic about recession and H1B, but you manages to sway the attention to the green card backlog and made all the guests agree that the backlog fix is very important to a good H1B policy.

Great job as always. We are always thankful for the attention you bring to this problem.

Thanks,
Kiran.
