Dear Members,

Thank you for making calls last week to members of Congress. With all your diligent phone calls we were able to make our voices heard. As the result this week we are requesting all members NOT to make phone calls to Members of Congress. Our cause is just and we will win.

Again, this week please DO NOT make any more phone calls to the Members of Congress. Your voices, our voices, have been heard. But our work is not over. We still have work cut-out for us.

There is 1 more day to go before the markup of H.R.3012 - the bill to remove per country limits. Here are the targeted action items for this week.

If necessary, we may have to add to the list of action items as the week progresses.

Actions to be performed this week:



ACTION ITEM #1

Vote in Support of the bill in an online poll at OpenCongress.com to make sure that Congress knows there is an overwhelming support for this bill.

Click here and support H.R. 3012 (http://www.opencongress.org/bill/112-h3012/show)




ACTION ITEM # 2 - Send Letter/Message to your Representative

When: Immediate/Now

Please contact members of Congress by clicking on the Action Alert below, to urge support for H.R-3012 - Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act. It will take less than a minute. This action item is mandatory for all IV members so that we can supplement ongoing advocacy efforts in support of HR 3012.

Letter to Lawmaker (http://immigrationvoice.capwiz.com/immigrationvoice/home/)



ACTION ITEM #3

When: Immediate/Now

Meeting Local District Offices of House of Representatives - After having called the Representatives last week, it is now time to step up the efforts.

IV is now coordinating meetings for our members with local district offices. This is an extremely critical effort.
* Find your local Representative here
* Please volunteer to participate in a meeting with your local district office to stress for support for HR3012. IV will provide you with all the materials and guidance. All you have to do is come forward to help with this critical effort.

Email district@immigrationvoice.org with your name, email, phone # and location to get the process started. We will send you directions.



ACTION ITEM # 4

When: Immediate/Now

Please consider supporting the advocacy efforts for this bill by contributing to IV. Your support is now more critical than ever before and will help sustain the strong advocacy efforts to get H.R. 3012 pass.

This is very important for us so that we can put in more resources in advocacy to ensure success. Your support counts a lot in this action item and we need this one urgently.

Contribution to Immigration Voice (http://immigrationvoice.org/forum/misc.php?do=donate)


These are all time sensitive Action Items. So please act promptly.

Thank you!

Team IV

There is at least one more day for the markup hearing, so why not?

10-27-2011, 10:11 AM
Guys pick up the phone and start calling your House representative. HR3012 is zooming. Thanks to Rep Chaffetz he didn't accept Rep. Lofgren's amendment, that would have made this bill controversial. And ofcourse Rep. Kings amendments.

Do not do anything we have not asked to do.

Unless we make an action item do not make any phone calls or any action.


Please very very strictly follow the action items of immigration voice. Discourage others to create their own action items. We have to work as a group.

With the passage of the bill in the House Judiciary Committee, we have to start meeting with the Representatives and Senators in our local districts, as these are the next two places the bill has to clear. Now is the time to step up and work hard to get OUR bill passed.
