Arrow Imho,

IMHO, we must stop talking from high pedestal and be approachable and all-inclusive first. There is nothing to prove to nay-sayers or people sitting on the fence. There will always be nay sayers and doubters, it's just a waste of time to even target them. Moreover, this is definitely not the time for chest-thumping.

My 2 cents.

Great effort by IV.
I hope the entire EB community unites over IV's tireless efforts. IV core members have been selflessly workign and speaking out for us. Taking time out of work to attend meetings on Capitol Hill, travelling across the country for lobbying, working 9-5 day jobs and then spending the rest of their personal time for advocating EB relief provisions and so on.I , for one, am personally aware of these efforts. These efforts and sacrifices never come out in public since these guys do not want any attention or credit. Most of them already have their green cards but are just motivated by the challenge to fix this issue of green card backlogs.

The bottomline is that we are in this mess together and lobbying and legislative relief is the ONLY way to reduce EB green card wait times. So even if people disagree with IV, the fact is that every backlogged EB applicant will benefit from these efforts.
Good Luck to paskal at the hearing. I am sure he will do a great job bringing focus to our plight.
