Topic: EAD for H4 Visa Holders

I have been following this thread on a regular basis, and I'd like to say that the contribution that people have made to this issue has been just awesome !!

I do think after looking at many of these posts that what we are missing is a formal association of H1B workers and dependents. It seems in all the debates that take place regarding H1B visa, the story of the H1B worker mostly go under-represented as we don't speak out with a common voice. We have the numbers - atleast over 1/2 a million by conservative estimates (not counting the dependents). Count the dependents as well and this number becomes big. Once we have a formal association, we can throw much more weight around getting our side of the story heard.

Once you build a formal association, have a good member base, it provides much leverage in terms of raising money, hiring full time lawyers, developing a credible knowledge base for use by members, negotiating with H1B employers to some extent, reaching out to congress/white house, etc. There are several benefits.

Topic: Remove Dependents from Quota

Great work guys! I think this is good that we are making efforts to have our voice heard.

Other than the petition, I think we can also try writing to white house as individuals with our stories of how the broken legal immigration system is having an impact on our and our family's life. I think many people impacted by the GC backlogs have US citizen children.

We can also reach out to the legal immigration advocacy groups like FWD.us and see if they can help in getting this point across to white house, Jeh Johnson and any other official who can influence the EO agenda.

Thoughts?

Same is the case in Minnesota. We have been living here for 5+ years and now my wife is starting a MS in University of Minnesota. As per the University's policy they are treating her as an out of state resident for tuition purposes. I am following up with many authorities in the University, but they just respond that you have to be a permanent resident to be considered as a in-state resident. This is really frustrating.

I am thinking of exploring legal options and exploring if I can do a class action lawsuit agains University of Minnesota. If there is anyone in Minnesota with a similar case, please reach out to me. Even if you had paid out-of-state tuition in the past few years, please reach out to me.

Its even worse. If you look at it again, only 667 were employment preference out of 25,200 total (12,091 immediate relatives and 12,305 family preference). Employment preference for India was a paltry 2.65%. I am surprised why China had 8006 in employment preference while India had only 667 - maybe because of retrogression? Even the

This link takes me to a page where USCIS is asking for "USCIS seeks your input on the operational proposal listed below.", but then there is no proposal listed fro comment. Is this the right link?

I love the sarcasm in this comment. Nothing better than humor to counter illogical arguments about why H4 EAD is not good.

Keep up the good work people! I just posted a comment with my story on regulations.gov.

I am new to this thread, so pardon me if this has been discussed in the past:

1. Good to see Shah Peerally's comments on regulations.gov. Did someone reach out to Sheela Murthy (murthy.com) and request for comments from her law firm as well? She is a great immigration reform advocate and could help pushing this forward.
2. How about reaching out to a few women rights groups and see if they can comment in favor of this issue?
