I doubt that USCIS gave us any additional information beyon what you would see on their website by tomorrow anyway!

So hang tight for one more day and you will see it all on their website.

By the way, I do personally believe that it would be only fair to include all the FOIA donors in the information sharing by IV, but it's just a personal opinion. Different people may have different views on it.

Just chill....

I will never ever donate if there is a fund raising campaign for any future issues.
When FOIA funding drive was on, we clarified with core that this drive is for a specific cause. They mentioned that this could cost more than $5K and we extended the drive for 10K.

I wish the data will be published soon to everyone - at lease who contributed for that specific funding drive.

I am not a monthly contributor anymore and still willing to donate for issue based funding drives. In the past I donated more than 500$ including FOIA and also brought in lot of my friends for FOIA. Now that access is restricted....well ..... I hope the information will be available to all very soon. What else can we hope for?
This does not leave a good feeling for sure.

Default I paid for it!!!

This seems like cheating to me, I contributed specifically for FOIA task and have every right to the information. IV should forward the received information to all the members who contributed during the month when this drive was going on.

IV can sit tight and not release the information but it will be cheating and IV will loose faith of all the paying and non-paying members.

Not sure why just $25/month to help ourself is such a big issues for so called highly skilled. Maybe its just me, but it feels like people can come-up with thousands of reasons for getting everything for free.

Two year EAD's have helped us save $300.00 + Lot of tension. Please understand this. IV is responsible for 2 year EAD's.

When the FOIA drive was started The core promised that the contributions are specific to the FOIA drive and a lot of folks contributed to that drive with an anticipation of getting the information. If someone paid for something they should get the benefit for it. By restricting the information only for DONOR forum, it is very clear that many folks will feel they are cheated. If someone had contributed for a cause they should see the results else it will just deter folks from joining and contributing to IV in future. IV core Should decide whether they want a short term satisfaction or long term solution.

Agree with you. I hope they release the data for those who contributed to the FOIA request.

I am still willing to become monthly contributor, in fact in the early days I was a monthly contributor. But can't justify it to myself when only 2-3 % of the community is contributing monthly and willing to help themselves. If after repeated requests of monthly contributions this is the situation, then there is something missing I feel.

I feel if IV brings down the contribution to $10/month, the volume of contributing members might increase and there will be more number of commited members. This is just my thinking.

Lightbulb Humble Request to Core

I can understand why some people are getting riled up about. I am also a past contributor who is not a current "Donor", though I too made a $25.00 contribution specific to the FOIA drive. But please do not make allegations on the good folks form the Core and other dedicated people who are working hard (who are "Donors"). I have received a PM from Pappu about 10 days back saying that they dont have any updates and will let us know when they do. So let us give some them some time (even though we think we have some information as of yesterday).


This is my humble request to Core:
Since many people have contributed just for FOIA but are not "Donors", please make all information (and all discussions) about FOIA available to everyone (not just to those who contributed for FOIA) on the open forum. I dont think that it is any sensitive information that people on the other side can use against us (please correct me if wrong). This is only for the FOIA issue, so that it is just and fair and a win-win solution for everyone.

Thank you in advance.

Admins and other senior members of Core,

I do not mean to belittle your work contribution to this organization and forum and highlighting the issues faced by all of us. I am not sure why this selective activation of access is being practiced. I am aware of what was written by Pappu in the first page of this post and I am sure a lot of members (including myself) contributed to the FIOA drive with a hope to see the results published and accessible to all.

I am not sure how to respond to this but just say ' deplorable'.

-cheers
krishnam70
