This is what I have received today. Should all of us petition for EB2 and EB3 applicants? They will respond to the petition only if 5000 people petition in a month.


The White House has just launched We the People on WhiteHouse.gov and you're the first to know.
We the People is a new way for Americans to create and sign petitions calling on the Obama Administration to take action on a range of important issues.
Learn more and get started:

We the People is easy to use. Here's how it works:
Create or Sign a Petition: Anyone 13 or older can create or sign a petition on WhiteHouse.gov asking the Obama Administration to take action on a range issues.
Build Support and Gather Signatures for your Petition: It's up to you to build support for a petition. Use email, Facebook, Twitter and word of mouth to tell your friends, family and coworkers about the petitions you care about.
The White House Reviews and Responds: If a petition reaches 5,000 within 30 days, it will be reviewed by a standing group of White House officials, referred to any other relevant policymakers and an official response will be issued.
The idea of petitioning the White House or the government isn't new, but this tool is. The White House has never tried anything like this before, and as a result, we'll probably have to make some adjustments as we go. As we do, we'll keep you posted on the White House blog.
So think about an issue you care about, who you can reach out to join you, and get started:

P.S. Help spread the word about this new tool by forwarding this email to anyone else who would find We the People interesting.

If IV supports this petition effort for EB-3/EB-2 Greencard Issue, there should not be any problem in getting 5000 signatures in 30/less than 30 days.
We don't know how much effective/successful, it would be for us. Looking to the gravity of our greencard problem, we should try this route also.(In addition to other efforts like we had Advocacy effort in April this year)
Any input/initiative/direction from IV core team for this petition campaign will be helpful.
