Default Message to President-Elect

I also sent message to President-Elect to expedite Emplyment Based Immigration cases for Permanent Residency: By Passing HR 5882 or By temporarily increasing Employment based visa Numbers until backlog is cleared.
Every one of us should send suggestions. It may help us. At least, we should try. Let us hope for some good news in Lame duck session or in new congress and New Administration.

The Employment based green card system is completely broken due to excessive delays and backlogs in petitions of nearly half a million highly skilled workers who are certified by US Government to be doing a job that no US citizen is willing, qualified or able to do. The delays in obtaining a permanent residency are due to 2 reasons: Numerical caps on employment-based green cards and processing delays in adjudication of files. Today the system takes anywhere between 6-12 years to grant Green cards to some of the best and brightest of the world who have chosen America as their future home.
The processing delays mock America’s respect for those who “play by the rules” and get in line.

At least someone has called out the issues. even if they are at a high level there is an opportunity to say something. I think if our lobbying has gone right then we may actually have some leverage.

is a little off color. Does not really show us having respect to the existing population. Let's not put words in the wrong mouths. Just my opinion everyone is free to say as they please.

This is ofcourse a very generic message and something basic which I expect each one of you to take and elaborate or take as a guide and change/alter and write in your own words. And we do not want everybody to take a perfect message and parrot it. That would look like a single person copy-pasting it 1000 times. Please personalise it and write it. There are 1000's (1/2 million) individuals affected and it should look like that.

Please post on the Obama site, fax in your FOIA letters. Thats the least anybody can do right now to help themselves.

Most of the Employment based Immigrants are highly skilled. Their potential needs to be tapped. Providing them faster Green Cards will let them position themselves as entrepreneurs bringing in new jobs to American citizens. They participate significantly in building the money pool for the federal and state government tax banks.

Good sample, but it would be better to add a little history about yourself. This might include how you contributed to economy, society. This gives an edge over illegals. Also you could add what problems we have to go through bcoz of this wait, and how will fixing this problem help immigrants help US economy.

Thumbs up Great effort

This is a very good idea and we all should write a personalized message pointing towards the same goal.

President-elect seems to be very IT savvy and may be this may help...

Have your spouses and kids fill up their own opinion.
