I know petitions in Change.org regarding immigration reform actually hurts us more than help but would it help if we responded to this RFI. I also know this is no substitute for advocacy and our job doesn't end with just providing feedback online and plan to participate/donate for the Feb event. I came across this and wanted to check if this would be beneficial for us to respond. It is found here - https://www.federalregister.gov/articles/2014/12/30/2014-30641/immigration-policy

The state department is asking for feedback such as

What are the most important policy and operational changes that would streamline and improve U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) processing of the following types of immigrant and nonimmigrant visa petitions?
a. Family-sponsored immigrant visa petitions
b. Employment-based immigrant visa petitions
c. Nonimmigrant petitions

. What are the most important policy and operational changes, if any, available within the existing statutory framework to ensure that administrative policies, practices, and systems fully and fairly allocate all of the immigrant visa numbers that Congress provided for and intended to be issued, but were not issued in past years?
