On behalf of the All of Us chapter here at [Name of the University], I am writing to ask for a formal statement asking the Congress to authorize more employment-based green cards.
All of Us is a national grass roots organization with more than 5,000 members from 60+ countries. Our members are from more than 60 countries: Armenia, Australia, Bolivia, Brazil, Belarus, Canada, China, Columbia, Croatia, Cyprus, Philippines, France, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, India, Indonesia, Iraq, Ireland, Italy, Iran, Israel, Japan, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Mexico, Morocco, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Taiwan, and others.
We study at [Name of the University] – as well as MIT, Stanford, Rensselaer, University of Texas at Austin, Penn State, Cornell, University of Notre Dame, Carnegie Mellon, Clemson, Indiana University, Pitt, Cleveland Clinic, Johns Hopkins, Brandeis, Virginia Tech, Duke, LSU, the University of Illinois, West Virginia University and many others.
Our professional fields include medical and scientific research (chemistry, computer science, physics, neurology, climate change, marketing science, and artificial intelligence, among others).
Our work saves lives and creates jobs. It is also an essential part of [Name of the University] . The green card backlog is an existential threat to American universities. You know that [Name of the University] has a community of international students from all over the world.
We know you are aware of the backlog for employment-based green cards, which is now more than a million people. A backlog means not enough green cards. So the solution is more.
You may have been asked to endorse zero-sum legislation, which cannot solve the problem. The Congressional Research Service analyzed that legislation and concluded not only that it wouldn’t solve the problem, but it
would make everything worse.
An immigration system that now doesn’t work for people born in India, will become a system that doesn’t work for anyone.
So we clearly need more green cards. That is what we are asking [Name of the University] to say, in a formal statement. We have attached additional material (e.g., Congressional testimony) to clarify the issues involved – and of course if you have any questions, just ask.
We ask for a meeting to follow up on our request for a statement.
