Expat's Voice, a non-profit organization that deals with social issues like legal immigration, especially for E-2 Visa Holders, will sponsor a fundraising effort this coming December. The organization was founded by British Expatriates, Sue Ward and her late husband, who are devoted to addressing legal immigration issues and raising community awareness of the problems and situations faced by those that come to the United States through lawful means.
They are hoping to use the money they raise to pay an immigration attorney to start drafting an amendment to the "Dream Act" as well as a new law for what the group is calling "Compassionate Visa" that will be used depending on the situation in different cases that are not usually allowed.
However, the main goal of the group is to change the United States law so that it will allow the children of the E-2 Visa Holders, which is a type of Visa that many British Retailers in the United States hold, to remain in the US when they reach the age of 21. The fundraising party will be on December 16, 2006 at exactly 7:30 p.m. in the Davenport area. Aside from the bingo games, prizes, food and drinks are in store for the visitors. Organizers are requesting that interested individuals reserve their spot before December 9, 2006. Directions will be provided.
