Please sign PETITION FOR REISSUANCE within the usa of H-1, F-1, and other NONIMMIGRANT VISAS

I encourage you to sign a petition I have drafted at the request of our community urging the Obama Administration to reinstate reissuance of nonimmigrant visas (including work visas like H-1, student visas like F-1, and family visas) within the USA, a practice that was discontinued in 2004. If the petition receives 100,000 on-line signatures by February 23, the Administration will review it, send it to the appropriate policy experts in the administration, and issue an official response. Signing the petition takes only a few minutes. Registration is open to everyone 13 years of age or older, regardless of citizenship or geographical location. It requires only your first and last name and an email address. Entering your zip code is optional. Once you receive a reply to your email account, you sign in and click on the petition. The website reveals only the initials of those who've signed the petition and, for those who entered their zip code, their city.

Here is a link to the petition and instructions how to register and sign: _campaign=shorturl

Please consider signing and spreading the word.
