"Why can't we move immigration bill faster and provide more green cards to legally working people so that will help housing market as more immigrants can bring more change to economy as many people wait to get green card to buy a home in USA"

Though VAMSI seems to have created 3 question on very similar question...we ideally need one great question....Core any suggestions ?

Also,one more note...this question by VAMSI has 91+ve votes and 92-ve votes...
I guess we need way more votes for it to reach Mr President...

Bump this thread folks !!

We can make it !!

Core, would you like to endrose this question or some other question ?

Very nice. I just watched the video.. Feels like Obama is sitting in front of me asking me what my problem is.. Never had this opportunity before right.. He asks us to use internet to tell him what our problems are and also allows us to vote. Though we are not Citizens. He is not asking us to register using SSN or anything and filtering only Citizens.. Its open to all.. Go and tell your problem and also DO vote on relevant topics.
Since its related to economy, related your GC problem to a solution on how you can make a difference to economy by jobs and by buying houses.. Please do it.
Lets this thread be bumped..
Obama wants to answer us Thursday. Just two days from now.. I just did it..

After logging in, if you search with "immigration", I think there are atleast 25-35 posts which are related to us. I created my question just now and went thru all the 171 questions and voted FOR all of them which are good for us.

Core Team,

Thursday is the deadline.. President is asking us to help him understand our issues. Can you please make this an action item.. Pleassseeeee....

Yes, very good question. Everyone vote for this question.

Good question.. I asked similar one.
"Mr. President,
I am patiently waiting for my employment based LEGAL green card to get processed for over 6 years and looking at 3-5 years more, putting on hold my plans to buy home, be an entrepreneur. I expect to wait but can it be reasonable? "
I voted for other questions for legal immigration.

Immigration is not a popular topic at these times...
Guys watch this video.. Where is the promised transparency? imagine what could happen if this goes through...
US Government is going to access your PC.. up next? Are they going to scan through underwear?

Why is that so called independent and powerful US media mum on this issue?
