ILW.com to feature ImmigrationVoice Print E-mail
Eb_retrogression, one of our volunteers had recently got in touch ILW.com, the immigration portal from the leading immigration law publisher and requested them to take up our cause. ILW upon reviewing all the material has decided to feature our group in  their sites and products and specifically want to reproduce the power point presentation created by him. We hope to have many more such leading publishers taking up our cause.

Here is the email conversation between them has been reproduced with permission.(Names of our volunteers have  been modified)

Dear Eb_retrogression,

Thanks for your email - an excerpt will appear in our letters to the Editor section. I am sure that Immigration Voice and ILW.COM will find ways to work together in the future. In the meantime, I'm writing to kindly request permission to reprint your EB Retrogression Powerpoint presentation as a Featured Article in Immigration Daily.

We do not ever ask for exclusivity in publishing articles, so we are a good way for you to get additional mileage from the work that you write. All we ask for is an assignment of limited copyright for unlimited reproduction on our site and products (Immigration Daily, Immigrant's Weekly, etc).

I look forward to your reply.

Subject: EB Immigration

Dear Sir/Madam,

I read an article "After the Fall: Making Sense out of Sensenbrenner" on your website and I thought it was very thoughtful.

On behalf of Immigration Voice (www.immigrationVoice.org), I wish to bring to your attention some of the issues we,the legal employement based immigrants to the USA, are having to face and request your advise/help to resolve them.

From the past year or so, the American Dream for legal immigrants has literally become just a dream.

I am one of those immigrants who are struggling to make America my home. I was born and raised in India and came here legally as a skilled worker on H-1B visa. Recently, the US congress eliminated the pro-immigration provisions from a bill.The bill was S. 1932. These measure could have helped hundreds of thousands of Indians and Chinese tech workers in silicon valley and other high-tech and software industries to gain permanent residence status that is not only something that gives them right to live here without being dependent on visas, it also is an important step to permanent settlement, citizenship and getting their roots deeper in the workforce and the community.

Hi-Tech industry workers on work visas deserve this not only because it helps us with peace of mind and permanent residency, but it would also mean rewarding skilled labor for waiting in line for immigration and playing by the rules, paying taxes and adding value to competitiveness of America’s skilled workforce.

Most of the time, “Immigration Reform” sounds like “How to handle 11 million illegal/undocumented workers in the country?” The noise machine on the right wing conservative side and the left leaning liberal side always seem to be contending on that issue. In that noise, what gets ignored is “Legal immigration reform”. I believe that it should be congress’s priority to handle legal immigration reform first and make fair rules and laws for people who play by the rules and are legally employed and then spend time legislating measures and relief for people who have entered illegally and are working illegally.

I would love to hear from you any suggestion on how we can make a difference in the current anti-immigration environment and channel our efforts to convince the congress to pass measure that would help legal immigrants achieve what they deserve – a quick and easy path to permanent residency and citizenship.

Many like-minded people facing similar issues have come forward, and we have formed an organization called Immigration Voice (www.immigrationVoice.org). Our goal is to try and educate lawmakers about our issues and hope to get a legislation with some releif, passed by the congress.

On that note, if you can provide us with any pointers, suggestions,contacts, lobbying ideas etc. we would be very thankful.

Please feel free to contact me if you need more information about the organization.

I wish you a very happy new year.

Sincerely,
eb_retrogession

Demphasize Nationality of Legal Skilled
Written by Alabaman on 2006-04-12 10:35:33
Nice letter however you should not emphasize nationality of legal immigrants like u did in the sentence: "These measure could have helped hundreds of thousands of INDIANS and CHINESE tech workers in silicon valley and ..."  
 
Doing this I believe will let legal skiiled immigrants from other countries support your course.
Good letter...and to reply to Alabaman
