wallpaper problems with work horses
I have just signed up for $20 contribution per month. Already contributed about $250 dollars until now.
I tried to get many of my friends in OHIO to enroll, but they just don't trust these efforts. I tried to convince them a lot but, they think everything will be resolved automatically and especially does not want to contribute even a $ for these kind of efforts. It's a shame on us that we tend to be the same backhome as well as here. Just use and use for free and never contribute anything back.
I'll follow-up with phone calls, too...

Visa numbers WERE available July 2nd!!
We have confirmed with a knowledgeable official in the Department of State Visa Office that USCIS was requesting visa numbers on Sunday July 1st, and Monday morning July 2nd - and that visa numbers were still being issued as late as the morning of July 2nd!
In fact, close to 30,000 visa numbers were requested and issued in July - through the morning of July 2nd. And we believe that many - if not most - of the requests made in the first two days of July were for applicants whose priority dates were not current in June!
So how can USCIS refuse to accept I-485 filings received BEFORE the State Department issued its notice that all visa numbers had been used???? We have not yet confirmed the return of any I-485s filed in July. But we do know that applications were reaching the USCIS before the State Department announcement - and while the USCIS was frantically working to use up the entire year's allocation.
USCIS did not use all visa numbers before July 2nd.
Did USCIS actually use the visa numbers it requested????
Historically, the USCIS doesn't request a visa number from the Department of State until it is ready to grant the adjustment of status application. US Consuls overseas request visa numbers the month before they intend to issue the immigrant visa. This is the reason why consuls return about ten percent of the visa numbers requested - and why USCIS does not generally return any numbers.
In fact, in making allocations of visa numbers, the Department of State factors in an expected return rate for consuls - but not for the USCIS. And the USCIS - before this June - used about 85% of the total immigrant visa numbers available.
However, already this month, the USCIS has been returning visa numbers. This confirms our earlier suspicion that the only way the USCIS could request 68,000 visa numbers in a matter of weeks was to request them in advance of adjudicating cases.
We believe USCIS exhausted the visa numbers by simply requesting them - not by using them. If so, and for reasons we will post shortly, we believe that over 30,000 visa numbers requested by USCIS will go unused - and will be wasted this year!

2010 Predator trapping Problems
I e-filed on May 22... FP done. No LUDs
One of the service reps was kind enough to send an expedite request on my behalf. No updates yet on that.
Planning to contact local congressman this week.
This is all so frustrating.. We were waiting for GC now wait for EAD too!! :mad:
My EAD is expiring on Sep 22... and to top all this, my DL is based on EAD.. so from Sep 22 I'll be sitting home doing nothing... :eek:
hair current problems will work
Deadline = April 30th, 2011
Goal = 5000 votes on survey (see I-485 filing w/o current PD thread) and momentum to continue with this campaign.The survey is a platform to gather and push for launching action items. Based on response by 04/30/2011 - IV will decide whether to even proceed with initiative or not.
Actions - 1) Vote on survey.
2)Email firstname.lastname@example.org with PD, ph#,email & subject "I485 filing impacted�,
3)Print/Circulate Fliers and spread FB, wiki link (see "support thread")
what the law is; is that greencard is for future position. who you are working with/where you live, what your status is; is totally irrelevant.
the company is probably advertising the position in california and that is where the job opportunity is. If it doesn't allow for travel then company is saying that is where you are going to permanently work.
Where you are currently doesn't matter within the law.
however, in the last few months; department of labor in audit requests has stated that job opportunity is at xx location but person address is at xxx and to explain the discrepancy. I haven't seen this type of query recently but your lawyer is probably thinking about getting this type of query.
Not probabaly but 100 % confirmed that i have never been a donor. Now my questions is why do big companies in USA donate to any party. They do that because they believe that when that party come to power the goverment will be positive towards that specific business. Now what part of the example is not clear to you. EB3 do not donate to IV because they do not believe IV supports EB3 cause. Sure IV says that it is for all EB but the concerns of EB3 get trodden under the general good of EB Community (Read that as EB2)
Of course i browse other so called chats and forum because IV is not the sole representative of EB community and in case of EB3 it was never a representative. How swollen is your head with pompous self importance to think that you make the only difference to immigration community.
It is easy to dismiss what i say as Mob mentality because that another defence mechanism which you use unknowingly where you believe that you alone know what is best for EB community. That is kind of a delusion which you will come out of soon enough
Yes people can chat and argue all they want on forums because that is what a forum is and yes 99% of people on public forums know nothing about advocacy, but they know about their issues and they do know that whatever advocacy is being done it is not helping them.
Strange indeed !!
Dude, two words for you - sue IV.
If you are so sure that IV is taking your monies and screwing you, feel free to sue IV.
In this country, anybody can sue anybody over anything!
hot We work with groups who are in
I spoke to several in my office with earlier EB3 PD's (who might not even get GC's in the next 5-10 years !) and of course with EAD's and they have literally substituted EAD for a GC. They were once a part of IV (and some similar org's ?!) but now have completely lost hope and don't care. I tried to motivate them to join IV and support but they feel that IV does not cater to EB3's anymore. Sadly they are not even trying to port to EB2. They are just content with a job and EAD.
So, I am not really sure how many of us are actually willing to fight ?!
In fact it's even worse for people like me who are still waiting to file their I-485. Is it going to take us 5,10 or 20 years just to get an EAD ?!
This is a bunch of nonsense you hear. These folks who tell you this have not even bothered to check the truth with IV or bothered to spend their precious time doing something constructive. They basically do not need greencard and Greencard is not important to them. Don't waste your energy trying to convince them. They are better off watching visa bulletins every month and blaming their karma. Our aim is not to have million members who do nothing and just criticize. But have a positive bunch that is sincere, committed and works to fix the problem.

pictures off from problems. We work
I started discussion by asking , how can IV convince me that my donation is going to help, I got shot down by ARROGANT ******** and got all reds as if I care. I was planning on a charity/donation drive of my own to get some money for IV.
Know lot of consultants, who really dont know what to do with their miles with every one a executive airline status.
Already have 10+ people pledging Poker tournament from my poker group with their miles for Airlines and hotels. We are talking of a Million AA miles.
Indian restaurants(s) having a Immigration week where a dollar of each bill be given to IV.
I was even thinking of standing at Indian stores in Dallas to ask people to consider for IV cause, as long as I believed and hence was asking.
I was just getting started with so many ideas for my free time.
Good luck in what ever you do guys. Note that GC is not everything and note that I am still on extended H1, family on H1 and EAD never helped me. so assumption that EAD helped my life is baseless. All these hypocrites are long gone from IV once they get GC. All we get is response that Mr X or Y , even after getting GC, is working fro cause. How can I believe.
Any organization can be successful if there are questions answered and not shot down. Just working at DC doesnt make some one a strong contributor for IV.Work at grass root level is so imp. What I have noticed is any one who went to DC has become headstrong, egoist and arrogant as if they own IV.
Please read my initial post before commenting. I always said, I am for IV cause. just convince me so that I can convince some one
Gisa pita dialogue,...dont ask what IV has done,, ask yourself what you have done... COMMON
Here it is, I can write in BOLD and RED
Your argument doesn�t make sense at all. All are lame excuses at best. If you want to see what people are doing, you need to start work with people, see and believe. We cannot give you the notarized copy of certificate. You cannot sit on the fence and ask people to convince. As I said earlier no one is getting paid for what we are doing and no one is doing any favor for others either.
Dont waste everyone's time with your useless arguments. If you really want to do something, start the campaign for whatever you believe and if its really worth people will follow you.

There is also a lot of information on advocacy on the top of this page, 'Advocacy' tab.
Red threads are action items started and approved by admin/core. donor threads say "donor forum" on the title.
Admins are still in the process of organizing, and a lot of this can be done only once we finalize most of the volunteers and donations collected - it will depend on this.
Contributions are optional and no money is expected from volunteers, except what you spend for your own stay and travel. Of course every one knows There ain't no such thing as a free lunch - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/There_ain%27t_no_such_thing_as_a_free_lunch). people still do wish though!
The only free lunch is meeting your local lawmakers as they are obliged to listen to your issues. That is the only thing we have asked most people to do in large numbers
Business dress code should be good enough. We are trying to convey we are high skilled immigrants and future entrepreneurs who create jobs.
You're right most lawmakers don't even know we have a problem and the reason is we as a community are not reaching out to them. Representatives of house change every 2 years.
Thanks for your efforts. Employer support is very important in conveying our issues. Large companies have their own political lobbying group. Support of citizens and Green card holders helps a lot.
We still need a lot of volunteers all over the country, who are ready to work and not just post brilliant ideas on online forums.
Everyone has to work and spread information. Its no good saying why doesn't core do this or that and everything else.
First of all I am pleased to inform you that I will certainly attend the advocacy campaign. This will be my first participation. I am eager and hope to make it. I have also started making travel / stay arrangements.
The fact that they are not dismissing this as a rumour means that they accept there is a "chance" however small that may be that the USCIS can stop accepting applications and they can do nothing about it at that point.
Yes in a way they are cushioning themselves, by sending out these client alerts, so that they are not held at fault if this may happen. But if there was absolutely no chance for this to happen they would certainly have dismissed it outright as a rumour.
July Adjustment of Status Filings May Be At Risk
Recent rumors have called into question the accuracy of the Department of State's July 2007 Visa Bulletin, which announced that all employment-based categories, with the exception of the "Other Workers" category, will be "current" (i.e. immigrant visa numbers will be available) as of July 1, 2007. These rumors have suggested that United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) may potentially, notwithstanding the July Visa Bulletin, not accept adjustment of status filings for all, or a part, of July.
Fueling concern over this possibility is the fact that, during June, USCIS took the unprecedented step of refusing to accept adjustment applications in the third preference "Other Workers" category filed after June 6, even though the bulletin showed numbers available throughout the month. USCIS took this step evidently after receiving notice from the State Department, outside the visa bulletin process, that the available numbers had been exhausted. There are strong legal reasons supporting the argument that this action by USCIS was improper. Nevertheless, the fear is that USCIS will take a similar step with respect to all or some employment-based adjustment of status filings made during July.
The widespread belief among immigration experts is that, even if USCIS accepts all employment-based adjustment of status cases sent for filing in July, there will quickly be another rapid retrogression of immigrant visa availability. This would result in potentially many thousands of newly-filed adjustment cases remaining at USCIS for quite some time while applicants wait for the immigrant visa numbers to again become current.
Obviously, a decision by USCIS not to accept adjustment of status applications for some or all employment-based categories during all or part of July would be a devastating development for companies and foreign national employees who have relied on the July Visa Bulletin and are preparing to file adjustments. Many organizations, including ***** and the Global Personnel Alliance, are working to determine the true position of USCIS and the Department of State on this issue and to advocate for USCIS to accept all adjustments filed during the entire month of July in accordance with the July Visa Bulletin. We will send an update when definitive information is available.
