i fear we r treading the same path...

what do u want to show in DC?
Do we have a clear agenda? So far none....


I am a victim of retrogression...Yet where I saw clear commitment and work b y IV i during the july visa bulletin fiasco now i see none..

What about the so called core team?

Are they really active?

Questions..no answer..It's high time we be part of a movement..not an organization where people become senior coz thney post so many messages and yet will do no thing outwardly....

when i read messages on this nwebsite it sickens me,..I have seen retrogession pre2000 and when i see (just downloaded reporeted PD's see majority of 2006 plus) talking about retrogression...It seems farcial...

common guys do u have A REAL AGENDA? from what it looks to me..u r fighiting a beuruecratic quagmire...thats it..

no wonder the core team isabsent..now that they have their GC's ....

and let me not even start on the guys who r You know what?

dear friend,

4 posts and the members here have already awarded you 2 red s. wonder if that gives you an idea where your opinion rates?
if this is just a bureaucratic nightmare and if this is is an organization without an agenda then why are you still here?

if this organization's core members were trolling threads and wasting time with posting all day, i doubt many members would have confidence in it. perhaps you do not understand that the forum is not where real work gets done. no, the core team members do not have GC's, all except the exceptional man who founded iv and continues to work tirelessly for it despite his GC getting approved recently.

and no, the number of posts gets you nothing. senior member is but a nomenclature the software awards when you have 100 posts. It gets you nothing as zero zilch nada.. Most members here are or will be "senior", and so what? if they rabble rouse like you they might as well not be members at all. Those red s on the other hand denote quality, as the software on the site calculates other members approval and disapproval of your words.

you ask if "u guys have a real agenda". clearly you have not read the mission statement of this organization. it's available, check it out. since you do not consider yourself one of us anyway, i repeat my question, why are you here?
you know nothing and understand less about IV, your words are hostile and inflammatory and your intent is to undermine our goals.

be warned that no organization (or movement) will tolerate this behavior.

please complete your profile
no bravery in shouting yourself blue while hiding
you have an EB2 PD of 2004, you seem to think you are close to your GC, so are you afraid that others will get one with shorter waits than you had to endure?

read this carefully: healthy debate is welcome. rude, hostile and inflammatory posts and especially undermining the basic goals of the organization you pretend to belong to, are not acceptable. the rest is up to you.

Default fact sheet exists

s_r_e_e, singhsa3 has already created an excellent fact sheet which gives a picture of how grim the green card situation is. please take a look at it...

I myself was thinking that until i came across IV. Some are happy they could apply 485 and think rest of the process should move on now.
What most people would understand is numbers. I am wondering if someone has/ would put together a chart with information like, this is the total number of apps pending, this could be % for heavily retrogressed countries. this is the / country quota.. so, for EB2 guy with 2007 it would be year 2012 to have visa number available.. similarly for EB3 it would take so many years..and so on for every year.. just fare estimate would be more than enough

The messages in IV homepage is easy to understand for people who have been following the immigration process/delays closely. But for others who are new to IV , it is a bit confusing...

Some thing in the following line, very specific ..
1) The estimate of GC approvals - when should you expect u r GC
2) The solution: - Recapture , Increase visa, untie family members from limit.
3) What can u do to make this happen. - rally

Wouldnt it be worth to try making a content like that to email friends?

Immigration Voice Group Organizes September Rally
Posted Aug 23, 2007

The nonprofit organization, Immigration Voice is organizing a rally to be held in Washington DC on September 18th, 2007. The purpose of the rally is for highly skilled, educated immigrants to be seen and for their voices to be heard by elected officials. Too often the media and elected officials seem to focus only on the issue of illegal immigration. These foreign nationals who have played by the rules, followed often-confusing and ever-changing laws by paying expensive fees in order to maintain their legal status feel that their voices must be heard.

Following the failure of comprehensive immigration reform in late 2005, Immigration Voice was created. Immigration Voice is determined that the voices of these skilled and educated employees, in high demand by U.S. employers, must be so loud that they cannot be ignored. These legal and highly skilled professionals whose contributions to the U.S. economy are invaluable are caught in backlogs resulting both from processing delays and the shortage of immigrant visas stemming from annual numerical caps under U.S. immigration law.

The purpose of the rally is at the heart of the of their mission - to peacefully protest Congressional inaction on the issue of visa and processing backlogs for highly-skilled immigrants and for Congress to seriously consider their position when enacting the law. Immigration Voice hopes to serve as an interface between these immigrants and the legislative and executive branches of the U.S. government.

To show our support beyond publicizing the event, we are making a modest donation of $5000 towards the expenses of the September 18th rally. This kind of peaceful demonstration on the part of the immigrant community is positive, and worthy of support. We believe that this kind of grassroots demonstration puts a face and gives a voice to legal immigrants that is a critical component and sometimes the only means for any change in a democracy.

Attorney Murthy and the Murthy Law Firm would like to wish the organizers of this event, and all those who plan to participate, great success in their undertaking!

For details about this event, go to: http://immigrationvoice.org

Default A simple action by every member can make a change..

Here is a simple action item for everyone. Please print out atleast
few copies of the rally flyer and post it at the places where you are
visiting this weekend. Most of the ppls go to indian/chinese
restaurants, religious places, or other places where immigrant gather
during the weekend. Please post the rally flyer over there. You don't
need to go out of U'r way to do this action item. It is a very simple
action item, U must do it.

If you are going to a place where legal immigrants gather and U
don't find a flyer posted and if U also don't post a flyer then as an
IV member, U are hurting IV's chance of having a successful rally.

I have started contacting my friends and making them aware of IV and its efforts. Just got one of my friends at Minneapolis interested. I am hoping that he will call more of his friends closer to DC and convince them to just drive by and attend the Rally.

Also, as it has been mentioned earlier on this thread, finally I see a mention about our Rally on www.murthy.com homepage. This will give a lot of credibility to our efforts!

Post Microsoft Hires Lobbyist for Visa Issues

Associated Press
Microsoft Hires Lobbyist for Visa Issues
Associated Press 08.24.07, 3:51 PM

Would be a great idea if IV core contact Microsoft or SC Partners LLC to find support for the September 18 rally


WASHINGTON - Microsoft Corp. hired SC Partners LLC to lobby the federal government on immigration matters, according to a disclosure form.

The firm will lobby on issues related to temporary visas and green cards for high-tech foreign workers, according to the form posted online Thursday by the Senate's public records office.

Redmond, Wash.-based Microsoft (nasdaq: MSFT - news - people ) is part of a coalition of tech companies and other groups lobbying the federal government to raise the number of H-1B visas, which allow companies to hire skilled foreign professionals for up to six years. The cap is currently set at 65,000.

Tech companies contend they need such workers to stay competitive globally. Opponents have said raising the visa cap would lower wages and discourage American youngsters from pursuing tech careers.

Microsoft has previously said that about one-third of its 46,000 U.S.-based employees have work visas or are legal permanent residents with green cards.

Under a federal law enacted in 1995, lobbyists are required to disclose activities that could influence members of the executive and legislative branches. They must register with Congress within 45 days of being hired or engaging in lobbying.
