如何给议员写信、打电话?

我们的口号是:每一个反S.386的朋友,请尽量给您所长期居住、较为熟悉的所有州每位参议员,写一封信&打一个电话。

有些参议员office就是数yes和no的留言数来决定投票的,很草率,但是真的……

给参议员写信,很简单,一点都不复杂。只要做以下几件事:

如何给议员写信

1. 从这里找到你们州没有cosponsor的参议员https://drive.google.com/open?id=1ntbEV8RWB516iiaBAobh8O56VjwxDkRn

  • cosponsor其实也可以写,尤其,如果您所在州两个都是cosponsor,也可以死马当活马医。

2. 去那几个议员的网站,file一个case,category如果不知道选什么,选一个看起来最对的就行,不要因为没的可选而停在那!

3.参照以下文档写一个message,不要超过400字,不要尽善尽美!如果你真的没时间,写一下你反对S386就可以了,有的议员staff就是数数的…

如何给议员打电话

1.在这里找到参议员DC office的电话号码:https://www.senate.gov/senators/contact

2.让他们反对S.386,只需要念清楚法案名字,并清晰表达No的观点就可以了,不要说太多

Sample:

Hello, my name is (name). I am a resident of Senator (name) from (hometown). I am calling to urge Senator (name) to vote against S.386 — Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act of 2019. Because it will kill diversity (如果你的议员是民主党)/ will encourage outsourcing companies to take away more American jobs (如果你的议员是共和党). It also hurts universities in the US because it favors outsourcing workers over the graduates. Please vote against this bill, thank you.

这样就行了,不需要说更多了。

为什么要打电话?有的人说打电话给议员是垃圾轰炸,这种想法是错误的。一方面,议员需要电话数据来统计民意(包括非选民的民意,因为非选民背后也有美国利益相关者,有利益就有选票)。另一方面,有的议员本来就打算反对,他们就等着一些信件、电话、约谈数据,才能正大光明地反对。我们是给他们送炮弹的。

以上这两种情况,都是议员办公室的staff亲口对我们说的,不是我们的臆测。

所以,给议员打电话,重点就是告诉他们yes或者no。至于理由、论证可以参考以下:

When talking to staffers for Republican Senators, these are the talking points I stick to based on guidance I’ve received from the Center for Immigration Studies:

  1. Bill H.R. 1044/S. 386 moves away from a “Merit” based immigration plan.
  2. Bill H.R. 1044/S. 386 against President Trump’s Buy American Hire American Executive Order because it incentivizes more H-1B abuse.
  3. Bill H.R. 1044/S. 386 rewards Senator Kamala Harris of California (Democrat) with a win.
  4. DHS/USCIS does NOT support Bill H.R. 1044/S. 386.
  5. Bill H.R. 1044/S. 386 suppresses employer’s access to a global pool of high-skilled talent by rewarding the low-skilled contract workers who came under the dysfunctional system.
  6. Bill H.R. 1044/S. 386 will create a train wreck in our legal immigration system as we have on the border, by creating an even bigger backlog for every country’s nationals, thereby forcing Congress to INCREASE green card numbers.

For the staffers for Democratic Senators:

  1. Bill H.R. 1044/S. 386 will end diversity in our immigration system, allowing one country to monopolize all employment-based green cards for the next decade.
  2. DREAMERS (DACA) will also be affected by Bill H.R. 1044/S. 386 as some want to get legalized, and obtain employment-based green cards is one pathway for them to do so. Same for folks on TPS (Temporary Protected Status).
  3. Bill H.R. 1044/S. 386 pits immigrant groups against each other in a zero-sum game of who’s worthy to be here.
  4. Bill H.R. 1044/S. 386 would favor only one industry (Big Tech) for receiving employment-based green cards, while other industries (Healthcare, Entertainment, Food Services, etc.) would never see the light of day of having their employees obtaining green cards.

For both groups:

Bill H.R. 1044/S. 386 does not address the source of the backlog problem, but rather the symptoms. You can remove country caps, increase the number of green cards, or both; but until the source of the problem is not addressed, the backlog will continue to remain.

The source of the problem is H-1B abuse, where a business model has developed whereby Indian Contracting Companies like Tata, Infosys, Cognizant, etc. have monopolized the H-1B visa program to in-source cheaper labor primarily from India. Because of the dual-intent nature of the H-1B, these in-sourcing companies can entice cheaper foreign workers to come in and work for cheaper salaries, in hopes to receive sponsorship for employment-based green cards in return.

Until the H-1B visa program is not reformed, simply fixing the green card program on its own is NOT going to amount to anything. We need a comprehensive fix for BOTH visa programs and have to incorporate a merit based system that rewards truly high skilled immigrants, and one that protects American workers from job displacement and wage stagnation.


不要种族歧视!

无论议员属于哪个党派,都不要种族歧视。尽量避免Indians blabla…的陈述,我们的批判对象是outsourcing,不是Indian people。

无论你是什么签证,只要合法居住在美国,都有权利给议员写信、打电话。

H/L签证说什么都可以,F等非移民签证不要表达出自己有移民倾向就可以了。

美国境内任何人的政治言论自由都受宪法第一修正案保护,只要不参加与竞选集资相关的活动,就没有法律风险。谁跟你说这个违法、要去FBI告你之类的,说明他需要我们的科普。对他笑一笑吧😁
