Dear Immigration Voice Members,

We are excited to share with you that on July 11, 2012 Senator Grassley lifted his hold on H.R. 3012, the Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act - the bill to remove per-country ceilings for a fair employment-based system that is “first-come, first-served.”

Senator Grassley (R-IA) and Senator Schumer (D-NY) have worked out an agreement on an amendment to HR 3012. With this amendment in place, Senator Grassley has removed his hold on HR 3012 and supports the bill’s passage in the Senate. We applaud Senator Grassley, Senator Schumer and their staff for the leadership and tremendous efforts to negotiate a compromise in the midst of a very partisan environment.

Here is the FAQ (http://immigrationvoice.org/forum/forum16-iv-agenda-and-legislative-updates/3071325-faq-for-grassley-amendment-to-hr3012.html) for the Grassley Amendment to H.R.3012.

As immigrants and those most affected by this bill, we have been and remain the key champions for HR 3012. Our employers, including Microsoft, Cisco, Intel, Google, HP, Qualcomm and several other tech companies, are on our side in this fight. They are good players and fully support the negotiated Grassley amendment, even though it could result in some additional costs to these companies. We believe that all of the Senators are on board with the substance of amended H.R.3012, and the House earlier passed HR 3012 with an overwhelming bipartisan majority—96% in favor. As far as immigration goes, this bill and the Grassley amendment are about as good as it get in terms of support.

Since the language of the bill will be amended, the bill will go back to the House after it passes the Senate. We are gearing up for our advocacy efforts to see the bill pass the Senate followed by vote on amended H.R.3012 in the House. But we cannot do this alone. As always we need every member to step up and do their share in fighting the good fight with the following two action items.

Action Items

************************************************** *************
1) We urge all members to contribute funds to Immigration Voice (http://immigrationvoice.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=26&Itemid=25#HowToContribute) as you have done in the past many times. We have come a long way on this bill in last 6 years and we need to have a well-funded advocacy effort in next few weeks in Washington DC to finish this job. Immigration Voice - PayPal Donate (http://immigrationvoice.org/forum/misc.php?do=donate)

************************************************** *************
2) Send a message to your Senators requesting for their leadership on a bill (http://immigrationvoice.capwiz.com/immigrationvoice/issues/alert/?alertid=61557191) that helps U.S. economy by letting high skilled immigrants create jobs in America. ImmigrationVoice.org - Advocacy -- Request your Senators to to Pass H.R.3012 in the U.S Senate (http://immigrationvoice.capwiz.com/immigrationvoice/issues/alert/?alertid=61557191)

If you receive a response from a Senate Office, please forward it to info@immigrationvoice.org. DO NOT NAME OR POST ANY SENATE OFFICE RESPONSES ON THE FORUM.

************************************************** *************

We have to act on these action items TODAY, TOMORROW and until you hear from us. Do not assume that “others” will do your share.

We are very close to getting this bill done and ending the discrimination based on country-of-birth once and for all. Our opponents have thought all along that the slow action in Congress would stop us. Now they are desperate and are making a last stand. Let’s work together on this final push and get this bill passed once and for all.

Thank you for your continued support!

Donated $100 and sent the letters to my senators.

As someone who attended couple of advocacy day events in DC related to this bill, I can tell people here who have not done so, that this is a monumental achievement to have reached this far.

When you attend the advocacy days, you see first hand the kind of effort and resources required to get something like this done. You also see the process in action.

Please contribute and also spread the word among your friends. These two action items need to be done asap. Please follow up and get this across to as many people as you can.

Once again, please do your part and be part of the solution and history. We have a chance and let us take the opportunity presented to us.

Contribute both money and effort towards this cause. Participate and win.

We need to be posting on all websites about this to get more support. Lets all do whatever we can to publicize this. Talk to other friends stuck in backlogs in your company to participate. If there are other websites where you can contact their owner, ask them to put this on their homepage. If you own a website, please post on it. Please also use this weekend to reach out to as many people we can in our towns and friend circle.

I have a question on the procedure: so after going for vote in the Senate, and then the House, does it have to go back to the Senate or directly to the Prez?

Directly to the President for sign on, as the senate would vote HR 3012 with the amendment.

If there are no changes at the house, then it goes directly to the President for sign on, as the senate would vote HR 3012 with the amendment.

Admins - please disable this guy's ID as he is a VERY SELFISH AS. HO..

I had to literally go back and search for the original post so dont worry about such remarks. Obviously our threads are overflowing with positivity that members dont even notice these tiny glitches. Ignore them if you come across any. Focus on our AI and encourage others to do too. Lets keep the momentum so that we have a very strong hand at the negotiation table to take 3012 through.........

Hi All,

I have started sending emails to teams running Indian Student Organizations at various universities. I am including the text below, in case some one wants to help me out. Please send me a PM stating the states you will be covering. I am currently doing OHIO and CA. To each email, I am attaching the flyers we created earlier in addition the link to the first page of this thread.

----------------
Hi Team ..,

I am xx, I am a member of an organization, Immigrationvoice (immigrationvoice.org). As you might probably know, we have been pursuing the bill which will remove per-country-cap for Employment Based visas and will allow everyone to get green cards faster by removing backlogs. We need all the support we can to get this bill passed through senate. This bill has already passed house, thanks to IV's efforts.

So, I write to you to request all members of ISO, to visit and do the action items. Its simple really-

1. Send letters requesting support from senators (IV website has all the information regarding this and is done in a couple of minutes)
2. Contribute financially (As student this may be difficult for some but everyone should honestly ponder the thought of giving).

It will be great if you could pass on the message to the Indian Student Community with any means of communication.

Here is a direct link to above action item.

http://immigrationvoice.org/forum/forum16-iv-agenda-and-legislative-updates/3071945-hr3012-in-senate-urgent-action-item.html

I also have attached flyers describing this to promote IV's cause.

As you can see this is very critical for each one of the highly-skilled immigrant and your prompt response will be highly appreciated.

Please let me know if you have questions.

Thanks,
xx

I can collect IL, WI, and let me know if you want more states. I have already collected IL Indian student association.

Hi All,

I have started sending emails to teams running Indian Student Organizations at various universities. I am including the text below, in case some one wants to help me out. Please send me a PM stating the states you will be covering. I am currently doing OHIO and CA. To each email, I am attaching the flyers we created earlier in addition the link to the first page of this thread.

Hi Team ..,

I am xx, I am a member of an organization, Immigrationvoice (immigrationvoice.org). As you might probably know, we have been pursuing the bill which will remove per-country-cap for Employment Based visas and will allow everyone to get green cards faster by removing backlogs. We need all the support we can to get this bill passed through senate. This bill has already passed house, thanks to IV's efforts.

So, I write to you to request all members of ISO, to visit and do the action items. Its simple really-

1. Send letters requesting support from senators (IV website has all the information regarding this and is done in a couple of minutes)
2. Contribute financially (As student this may be difficult for some but everyone should honestly ponder the thought of giving).

It will be great if you could pass on the message to the Indian Student Community with any means of communication.

Here is a direct link to above action item.

http://immigrationvoice.org/forum/forum16-iv-agenda-and-legislative-updates/3071945-hr3012-in-senate-urgent-action-item.html

I also have attached flyers describing this to promote IV's cause.

As you can see this is very critical for each one of the highly-skilled immigrant and your prompt response will be highly appreciated.

Please let me know if you have questions.

Thanks,
xx

Yesterday I had signed the email version of the action item. Today, I have printed the letter and posted the letters to the Senators by snail mail. Snail mail is a little more hassle, but I feel it is worth it.

Please see details regarding the letters action item posted by pappu in the first post of this thread. Letters need to be sent every day . Even I got standard reply from my Senators but I sent the letters again today . If you got a very very specific reply then forward it to Pappu / Starsun. If its standard boiler plate reply - send the letters again

I got reply from one of state senators yesterday. I don't think I should be sending it again today.

Dear Immigration Voice Members,



We have to act on these action items TODAY, TOMORROW and until you hear from us. Do not assume that “others” will do your share.




Pappu,

Question - Do we need to send the letters daily. In the past there was some confusion about doing the action item daily. Later we were asked to do our due diligence and not spam the senators. Please advice in the current efforts.

I think we need to be careful and not appear like spam. I think most of us can figure out how to automate with some effort if we wanted to but we don't want all these emails to go straight to the spam folder

As pointed out yesterday also use the "print letter" option to printout a letter apart from the emails. Sign the letter and mail it in. Address for Senate offices are on senate.gov.

It shows more effort and a hard copy of a letter has good impact. THe template is all there..just have to click "Print" and thats it! Please mail in signed copies of the letters as well!!

or different bill ?
