Thread: HR 5882 Support Thread - CALL YOUR U.S REPRESENTATIVE !!

  1. #1
    09/17/2008 : 10:15 A.M. (EST) in 2141 Rayburn House Office Building - Full Commitee meeting to discuss HR 5882 Visa Capture Bill introduced by Ms. Zoe Lofgren.

    Supporting this bill will help everyone stuck in the immigration mess. For once, let us all forget any differences, category, priority...LET US ALL CALL OUR REPRESENTATIVES BEFORE 10.00 AM EST TODAY AND SAY THAT YOU SUPPORT THIS BILL.

    Anti-immigrant groups like NumbersUSA and racists like Lou Dobbs are bombarding everyone with false information stating that this bill will bring over 550,000 people into the US while the fact is that it will provide much needed green cards to LEGALS who have been paying taxes, social security, following the law and helping boost the US economy for years.

    We legals, need to work together as one, call every senator possible to show your support to this bill and defeat the anti-immigrant groups who are doing all that they can to stop us from being part of the American dream !!

    So, please friends, show your support !!

    Contact your senator using the U.S. Capitol switchboard number (202) 224-3121 and say YES to the HR 5882 bill.

    In case you need to know who your senator is, enter your zip code in the 'Take Action Now' box at the AILA site below.

    http://congress.org/aila2/issues/bills/?bill=11328731


    You may need to enter your address to get the correct senator if your zip is split into different legislative districts. Find out your senator and contact him/her ASAP today to show your support for the bill.

    Please call the senator's office by phone as time is of the essence.

    Additional Phone instructions:-

    (1) Call the congressman/woman office and request to speak with the aide who handles Legislative and Immigration matters.

    2) If they are not available leave a Voice Message for them -

    "I would like Representative "Representative Name" to support HR 5882 bill to recapture the green cards lost due to processing and bureaucratic delays. As you may already know that this is a bi-partisan bill with wide bi-partisan support in the house and will help improve American competitiveness & reduce the back logs associated with USCIS. This bill's non controversial measures will help the US to stay competitive with a highly educated and skilled work force and address family based backlogs also.

    Thank you.

    Everyone please call the Capitol switchboard number now and support the bill. Just 1/2 hour from now and our fate will be decided.

    It will take just a few minutes of your time and will save years in the greencard process.

    A few minutes call from you can help shorten your GC wait by years !!

    Please call the above members and spread the word amongst all your friends, relatives, colleagues and everyone who is affected by this immigration mess.

    This week's televised debate showed how dirty delaying tactics can be played some members of the commitee. If that is not enough, here is what some anti-immigrant groups say about the bill:-

    "This legislation is similar to the measure that Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) used before Summer recess to hijack debate on E-Verify reauthorization. The bill's sponsor, Immigration Subcommittee Chairman Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif), claims it would 'recapture unused employer-sponsored visas' from as far back as 1991 and then add them to the current numerical cap of 140,000 employer-sponsored visas that are available each year. Current law, however, clearly states that any employer-sponsored visas not used in one year are allocated to the family-preference categories in the following year. That means that there are no "unused"¯ visas from past years to 'recapture.'

    Moreover, these extra green cards would be for foreign workers to take engineering jobs, health care jobs, construction jobs, manufacturing jobs and just about every other job that Americans have been losing in this economy. In order to qualify, a foreign worker doesn't need more than 2 years of on-the-job training – and they aren't even required to have a high school diploma. Our country doesn't need these workers - our workers need these jobs!"

    See how much misinformation these groups are spreading. SO PLEASE FRIENDS, START MAKING THE CALLS FROM TODAY. SPREAD THE WORD, LET US HELP GET THIS BILL PASSED.
