Why does the page now not mention VP, Immigration Voice for Puneet? What happened? Earlier the page did mention Puneet as the VP of Immigration Voice.

Default IV Press Release

FYI. for IV members.

Below is the press release being released by IV to the media. This will go out to hundreds of reporters and publications with immediate effect.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 25, 2011
Immigration Voice


Immigration Voice invited to U.S Senate hearing to testify on high-skilled immigration

The high-skilled immigration system in the U.S is outdated and broken. This is evident from the backlog of up to a million applicants that currently exists in the employment-based green card queue. It does not make any sense for the current system to take up to a decade or more to grant green cards to some of the best and brightest in the world, who have chosen America as their future home.

Immigration Voice, a 501(4)c non-profit organization, has single-handedly acted as the collective voice of thousands of high-skilled immigrants and their families who are stuck in this green card limbo. As a result of persistent advocacy and grass-roots efforts, this volunteer-driven organization has been successful in creating awareness among U.S lawmakers, on the issue of green card backlogs and long wait times.

Dr.Puneet Arora, from Immigration Voice, has been invited to testfy at a Senate Immigration Sub-committee hearing on July 26th, 2011 at 10:00 AM ET. Dr.Arora will be joined on the panel by Mr.Robert Greifeld - NASDAQ, Dr.David J.Skorton – Cornell University and Mr.Brad Smith – Senior Vice-President, Microsoft.

Event Details
“The Economic Imperative for Enacting Immigration Reform”
Senate Judiciary Committee
Subcommittee on Immigration, Refugees and Border
DATE: July 26, 2011
TIME: 10:00 AM ET
VENUE: Dirksen Senate Office Building, Room 226, Washington DC

About Immigration Voice
Founded in December 2005, Immigration Voice is a rapidly growing, national grassroots non-profit 501 (c)(4) organization consisting of over 50,000 highly-skilled legal immigrants. Immigration Voice members are committed to sensible improvements to the employment-based immigration and green card process.

Schumer is speaking and the speech reflects what we always discuss on IV. Which means IV is involved a lot in the background. Let us all be proud that we are a part of such an organization.

Default as usual Chuck Grassley is against h/l/opt

as usual Chuck Grassley is playing divide and rule game. He is after OPT people now. That anti immigrant senator wants to stop legal immigration right from beginning.
