As million across worldwide, there may be some hundred or thousands
effected in Pakistan from this US imigration law, to unite the families
some community people had tried to unite the families in the US, in the
form of "V" visa. As hundreds and thousand of lawful permanent residents
(LPR) also known as Green Card holders, are currently living in the US,
seperated from there families, they are waiting for their I-130 (petetion
for their relative) to be approved. The current waiting time is '6' years,
while they wait thir spouse are are not allowed to enter US, even for abrief visit. This bring the LPR in to an extreme disadvantage.The soloution for this was created, thanks to Mr. Bill Clinton, who created the LIFE act
in 2000. It is called the "V" visa, in which a LPR spouse can come to the
US, who has been waiting for atleast three years, and whose I-13 has been
filed on or before December 2000. Unfortunatetly the "V" visa is no longer
available and expired on January 1, 2004, best soloution is to renew "V"
visa. Recently in 108th congress, Rep Andrews (NJ-1), introduced a bill
H.R. 3701 on January 20, 2004 and this bill is currently pending on
jurdisation. The bill stated to renew the "V" visa upto January 2011 and to
cut off the waiting time from 3 years to 6 months. In all aspects the Bill
H.R 3701 is an excellent piece of legislation. So help and support this
bill before the 108th Congress expires.
