Alan Greenspan is talking about H1b and other highly skilled immigrant's issues. Also mentioned about Housing Crisis.

I am not being pessimistic; this is just my opinion about CIR: I don't have high hopes for CIR when it comes to EB immigration.

Every article that I read about CIR mentions issues related to undocumented workers/residents/aliens and border security. These are high priority issues within immigration reform domain. Legal immigration (family & employment) are secondary and in this segment Family based immigration gets precedence due to large number of immigrants from Latin America has larger vote.

I think issue of H1B visa will be at a higher priority as larger population of US is aware of this category so it has more political value and of course thanks to Sen. Grassley.

That puts Legal Skilled workers' issues related to immigration (GC) at the bottom of the pile. Not that other issues are non-important but since this issue has least priority we at IV need to emphasize more and explain the dire need for relief for those who are waiting for long time.

Bottom Line: Immigration is multi-issue agenda, IV needs to assign separate teams for these issues so even if CIR doesn't go through we at least will have success at fixing some of the issues.

Wall Street Journal has a article about the Greenspan's testimony. The comments seem to be taken over by the anti's. Please comment if you can.

Best way to get your points across is by Writing to Fawn Johnson at fawn.johnson@dowjones.com and the editors. There are going to be thousands of comments and nobody will have time to go through them. But someone will definitely read your emails.

Do mention about immigrationvoice so that the reporter can come to our site and us for more information. No point posting comments and engage in nasty comment war with antis. You cannot change their ugly mindset no matter how well you try to explain. These over the hill racist nutjobs have nothing else to do in life than spend their time on such sites to post their comments. Rather than learn new technologies, upgrading their skills, innovate or start new companies they waste their time in xenophobic agenda. They are just afraid of competition and unwilling to work hard.

So write emails and put in effort where you will get more benefits.

Default WSJ is already pro-skilled immigration

WSJ is already pro skilled immigration and have had numerous articles on the same and keep having it all the time.

We can write to them to give it more PR. But a lot of readers of WSJ are very anti and all the comments are littered by that stuff. As a result, not sure if someone who reads the comments as well finds the articles helpful.
