We have done what we could on the reg. We are now in standby mode. The WH official had promised further consultation but we have seen his enthusiasm diminish and it does not look very promising at this point. Here are a couple of things we can do to try to put ourselves in a better place than where we are. 1. We plan to reach out to the Indian government and educate them about our issues. So far, only the IT consultancy industry has lobbied with the government and we have seen the government use its leverage with the administration and even fight for them (at the WTO for the fee increase). It is time they also understand our plight, if not the the dark side of that industry, and raise our issues too with this or the next administration. We need people to pitch in to draft a letter to the PMO. The letter will outline the background, the issues we face (presume they know nothing about us or our issues because that is most likely the case), how the IT consulting industry efforts, such as easier L1, and their dislike of executive actions may have derailed the little relief we may have gotten; ways in which the government can help us change US immigration policy towards employees. 2. We plan to reach out to the tech industry bosses (indian origin ones and others as well) to educate them of our issues and seek their help. Again, we need people to volunteer to make this happen.
