View Full Version : Let's do it again IV(I+We)'ans

05-15-2008, 11:41 AM
A few IV(I+We)'ans from several state chapters across the US have been working really hard to gather support for our bills to recapture EB visa numbers, eliminate per country caps and exempt STEM graduates from GC Quota. We have started a funding drive of 50,000$ to support lobbying efforts of these bills 25 days ago. So far we have raised 16256$ with the help of 167 members. We still need 33,744$ to reach our goal.From time to time IV'ans have come together and have made miracles happen. We have achieved Reversal of the July Visa Bulletin and succeeded in obtaining a few Admin Fixes ..

Can we come together and raise the remainder of 33,744$?

Yes we can and we will

Hi Pappu,

How about 10000+ people sing a single letter and send it to every congressman/woman or senator. When you ask people to send letter to all congressman/woman they wonít. But i believe they wont hesitate to just sign one letter. Let me know if itís useful

What we need to do is to send a distinctive post cards to all the members of the congress by all of us that means each of us sending a post card each with our address and phone numbers.

The post card should contain
- IV logo and what we are
- What we want from Congress in very simple term
- What we will happen with the reforms

So if we can get the portion of the money collected to create these postcards pre-printed with congressional office address addressed to each member and then IV members should send a request to the send the package to them by sending a money say $25.

Once the member recieves the package then prints the name and address and just attaches a stamp and sends it by mail to congressional office in DC on designated week.

I believe we get a bang for the buck if these postcards arrive enmass at one time and create more awareness to our plight and hopefully create a media sensation (similar to flower campaign).

In each of the case of our victory came by some mass mailings either flowers or letters.

05/19/2008: Passage of H.R. 5571 for IMGs Failed Today and Postponed Until a Later Date

The House floor failed to pass this bill and postponed until the undetermined date for final action. :(

This bill was supposed to be less controversial than EB recapture bills?
