I am wondering why shld there be a min. of $100.00 for one time contributions. It is discouraging those that want to donate less than that, say $50.00. It would be helpful if you could LIFT HOLD on the minimum unless and other wise for a rationale.

Kudos to IV for all its efforts ! Thanks to Grassley as well !!

Just hope the Irish won't crash the party in the Senate or House !

Mr. Oh is already making some noise about Irish bill :) I doubt Mr. Grassley would have lifted his hold if it involved any new visas though

Don't want to pick a fight. But I couldn't control myself. If munnaguru was from India/China, after seeing the above link - posted earlier by others - he/she would have posted back telling how excited he/she was. So the original post was really from an imposter.

Pappu, Admins - please let us know about the next action items. Will do them diligently.

I apologize for not being in the loop these several weeks/months. I have been managing a crisis on the personal and professional front, and so everything else has taken a backstage.

I am excited by the possibilities this hold-lift has. Hopefully, this sees swift passage in the senate and the house.

God Bless.

THANK YOU SO MUCH IV.

We all should be very happy and keep support IV until we reach the final goal ÖI know, there is a lot of work left, but, I am confident that if we all unite with IV and we can easily do it....

I personally feel the immediate next step is donation to IV to reach to the final goal.

Please donate how much ever you want to and call your friends and family and ask them to donate for this great cause. Trust me, after this news is out, I immediately called 6 people who will benefit with this bill and asked them to sign-in in this forum and make a donation and also asked these 6 people to get at least another 5 people to do the donation to IV for HR 3012. Also, I am NOT going to stop with these 6.

If not now, I do NOT see itís going to come this closer in the near future.

I sincerely request you to please donate to IV and follow the action items towards this great goal. WE ARE NOT DONE YET.

I do not have any direct contact with IV and I am just as like you, But, I've TRUST on them.

FYI.. I have signed for 6 months donation, which was expired few months back and now I just made one time BIG donation and will do the same in the future too.

I know I am keep saying the same again and again. Please support and get this pass the line.

Disclaimer: I am not forcing my views and opinion on this on anyone. I am just putting this out there to help encourage others who have been struck in the LONG lines ... For those of you who may get offended then feel free to vent out your frustration in different way BUT not on me please.

What about Allowing Certain H-4 Dependent Spouses to Apply for Employment Authorization. RIN: 1615-AB92
CFR Citation: 8 CFR 274a.12(c)

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) proposes to amend its regulations by extending the availability of employment authorization to H-4 dependent spouses of principal H-1B nonimmigrants who have begun the process of seeking lawful permanent resident (LPR) status through employment and have extended their authorized period of admission or "stay" in the U.S. under section 104(c) or 106(a) of Public Law 106-313, also known as the American Competitiveness in the Twenty-First Century Act of 2000 (AC21). Allowing the eligible class of H-4 dependent spouses to work encourages professionals with high demand skills to remain in the country and help spur the innovation and growth of U.S. companies, and thus allow the United States to remain a world leader in high technology.


Please lift your hold and approve this rule too.

AILA just woke up and is washing the face and brushing the teeth now. M-Ohio was the first to wake up and brush as soon as IV updated us about the hold being lifted.
First and foremost we immigrants have to let go of our reverance and adoration for AILA. You have clearly seen that one of their own members has spoken extremely critically about the mgt there. They dont stand or represent us from now onwards. Pls feed that deep into your minds. Yes a faction of them are possibly fighting us with regards to this issue and they have money and voice since even our own members still consider them to authorities when it comes to representing our issues.
We also have the ILUSION that AILA "KNOWS EVERYTHING" that is going on. That is just plain BS. We are in charge of our destiny and we will continue our fight.

Still in doubt?? Ok just email your attorney and ask what they thought about 3012. Whether it is a good bill, its possibility and should you actively support it? Post your reply here.
