All,

IV has put in significant effort in creating this survey to map the strength of our community.



http://immigrationvoice.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=95&Itemid=36

The objectives of this survey are:
•To counter the bogus anti's claims on H1s.
•To improve the brand image of IV community as a set of sophisticated highly-skilled immigrants who have and will contribute further to this country.
•To ensure that aspiring immigrants get a better picture of US immigration and immigrants..

Please utilize this opportunity to:

* Provide an honest feedback on your strong contribution to the USA.


A genuine feedback will help us communicate the reality to lawmakers with a lot of credibility. None of the individual responses will be shared. It will remain confidential with IV. Our goal is to highlight the collective strength of our community and underline its importance to the value add for this country. You may have to do some homework to fill in ball-park figures. This will be worth it for individual and group confidence. We look forward to your responses.

Please post this information on other sites to get more people to participate in this survey. The survey ends on Dec 15.

Pappu,

I have completed the form.I felt there should be a Disclaimer from IV that this "Personal Information" will be used solely for the purpose mentioned below and WILL NOT be given to any Third party.

We definitely don't want to deal with more SPAM. It's not that this information of mine is not available on internet, but just to avoid any 'personalized' spam.

Thanks,

Done!

I would have love to see a section to show that we are law-abiding and the contribution of our family to our community and the economy. For instance my son has graduated college and now working, paying taxes and contributing to the US economy. And I am sure that most of you here who have college age kids are sending them to colleges and sometimes even paying out-of-state tuition to boot.

Thank You for filling in and for your suggestion.
Have you filled some details in the section of "Any other way you have contributed to the American Economy / Community." in the survey?

Done.

I would have liked another field which asks how much money has been moved away from USA due to uncertainty with the wait for green card.

Personally, I wish I had parked my savings money in USA, but due to green card limbo I ended up moving all that money outside to another country to invest.

Only reason, I am not sure where my life would end without knowing an answer to my green card application.

I think this is a key point which is missing in the survey.

I agree that every single job loss matters and I support keeping jobs here where possible - unless essential.

Interestingly, jobs lost due to outsourcing are far less than other factors. Here is some interesting survey link:

Where the Jobs Went - Careers (http://www.cioinsight.com/c/a/Careers/Where-the-Jobs-Went-517950/?kc=CIOMINUTE11112009CIOA)

The reason I posted it here is because the anti-immigrant lobby also views immigrants as supporters of outsourcing - which is not true because we look wholistically from an economic perspective. Also we are comparatively less emotionally charged about local issues, something that we should be more involved in to ensure comfortable assimilation for natives and immigrants alike.

If you know any of your friends that qualify for the survey but have not participated, pls ask them to fill it in. The more data we have, the more it is to our advantage.
