Thumbs up

I just checked....the petition has 611 signatures now.

That is an 80% increase in less than 24 hours. Wow!

the peitition was created by one Mr Chakraborty (anindya28@rediffmail.com) and I think only he has the 'rights' to submit the petition for consideration.

I believe atleast 1,000 signatures (hopefully more, maybe 5,000) will be needed before it can be submitted.

Default My version of the petiton

No offense, but the original petition looked more accusatory and would not help our cause. So I came up with a revised version which is direct and does the job. Feel free to throw your ideas and improve it.

<<To: President Bush, Honorable House Representatives and Senators>>

We, the undersigned are in full support of the SKIL bill introduced by Senator <<Cornyn>> and Congressman Shadegg and also the other legislations put forth to solve the delays/problems in legal immigration, which legal immigrants in America face today.We also thank all Congressmen and Senators who agreed to co-sponsor the SKIL bill.

In order to maintain and retain the competitive edge in scientific and technological innovation in the world, America needs skilled immigrants and faster assimilation of them into the American Society. SKIL Bill contains provisions to make that happen.

The current immigration procedure is literally "broken". As per the current system, we, the skilled immigrants, have to wait for typically more than eight years, in order to get immigration benefits and a Green card. Backlogs and VISA retrogression are affecting us to the extent that some of us are even questioning "Is the American Dream worth it?". It is our appeal to the leaders of this great nation to alleviate our ordeals by supporting SKIL bill.

- We urge the Senate, the House and the President to pass the SKIL bill and/or other legislation(s) which would increase the annual cap on employment-based Green cards and eliminate "VISA retrogression".

- We urge the Senate, the House and the President to exempt individuals with advanced degrees in Science and Engineering from the annual cap of employment based Green cards.

- We urge the Senate, the House and the President to exempt spouses and children from the annual cap of employment-based Green cards.

Sincerely,

Sincerely,
And who is going to sit and edit all this and then re-post it and expect people to sign up again? I think the old petition is quite adequate and reasonable. People here are exhausted with all the information that is already out there. Quite unreasonable to re-do things at this juncture, IMHO.

What are you waiting for?

http://www.petitiononline.com/legalimm/petition.html
Sobers/whoever is in charge of the petition,

How are you planning to use this online petition?
Let us know how after you get all the signatures online you would apply them for making a strong case. There was some online petition by someone else (done independently) sometime back on IV site and lot of signatures were collected and we never found out if any step was taken after getting all the signatures.
