Default Legal grounds

Not sure if IV has already explored this... Have we already taken legal advice on this matter of alleged corruption by the lobbyist ? If there is strong legal grounds, then why cant we formally register a case and get this Lady removed from any involvement in DHS affairs or at least strengthen the chances of her wrong doings being exposed which may force her to resign..

Now is the time to let the Administration know about our outrage, let the Administration know how little the rule changes - how useless the rule is and shine a spotlight on this possibly criminal irregularity.


This is not a time for Intellectual discussion.

Also, I didn't understand why we have to be on H1 when one is given I140-EAD? The reason they didn't honor EAD for H1 during H4-EAD is different, because H4-EAD is for H1 folks dependants... But this case is different...

We would not have to maintain H1 during I140-EAD. There is no reason we could not have stayed on I-140 EAD until our I-485 was approved.

The only reason against it is because AILA members would have lost their "tax" every 3-years and Chamber of Commerce members would lose a lot of cheap labor.

As Hil said, we should be submitting angry comments now, not being "Intellectual" about it.

As hil said, let us focus on as many opposing comments right now.

I am about to go on a nonstop comment mode for the next 2 hours. Hopefully 30 comments per hour rate.

Hey parth, just play for playing sake right now (said Krishna to Arjuna )

I am no expert on their policy but I am guessing they will consider it as one comment.

White House responded to a petition named Making a Murderer that gathered 120K signatures in less than 20 days. And it made national headline.

Petition
https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/pet...teresa-halbach

Headline
https://www.google.com/search?q=whit...ing+a+murderer

IV, unless you have other ways to pressure White House, why not start a petition to "Investigate DHS for the Killing of I-140 EAD". We can go on the streets of hundreds of cities in the US and gather signatures from sympathetic Americans!

We have never gathered enough signatures in past petitions. And we have to ask why. Is this because most of us don't care to sign and just want a free ride in this struggle?

Maybe we forgot that there are so many American people who are sympathetic with us and if we ask them they would happily sign for this petition. We have alienated ourselves from the mass support of the reasonable Americans.

IV, educating Americans on the benefit of highly skilled legal immigrants and gathering their support in our struggle should be on your agenda. Let's not fight alone.

You can even sign such online petitions once every hour with a new ID and it will mean 24 people signed.

The only way to protest are the following

- Hire top lobbyists for a long period of time and spend a lot on lobbying. Lobbying on shoestring does not yield much. You have to go with top lobbyists. This requires capital. We have identified a modest budget to start with as stated in the last week's public conference call. This is why we want everyone to sign up for monthly contributions asap.

- Advocate. Advocate. Advocate. We need to do grassroots campiagns more and for a long period of time. Civil rights law did not come into being with that just one speech by MLK. That campaign went on for a long period of time at grassroots level. We need to have several advocacy days in DC. Say once every 3-4 months and want more people coming to DC regularly every month.

- Show up in tens of thousands and protest in public a few times. If it is even less than 10 thousand, it will not have desired impact. We have done that a few times in IV in the past and this is the learning. It has to be a recurring thing like undocumented folks who are advocating

- Volunteer to IV and help run this organization.

- Get more active after becoming citizen of GC holder. You can contribute to election campaigns, PAC and as a citizen you can do a lot in IV.

- Get your company to support IV and its agenda. Talk to your CEOs and higher management about it. Contact us and we will give you tips.

- Spread the name of IV in your friends and local organizations. We need everyone affected be a part of this movement,

These aholes have lost their credibility. Nice!

I have an idea for the followers: They should ask their expensive suits from AILA to provide 14,000 "expert opinions" supporting the I-140 EAD/AP (DHS authority etc.) and attach them as support individually. Well, they do not have do much on work on this since memo was leaked already to ...........Any takers to see where that goes?

Sorry for the side track from commenting. I read this link and found it useful in learning about this rule making process:

Administrative Procedure Act | Center for Effective Government


Keep em comments coming guys!
