Hi Guys,

I have some problem with my I-485 and would like to meet a senator or congressman. Just wondering who is powerful between senator vs congressman to deal with I-485 immigration issues. Please advice!

Thanks

Sorry, I have no idea who is stronger but I think a congressman is eihter a Senator or Representative. So I guess your question is : Is a Senator stronger or Representative stronger ?

All I know is there are two Senator per State (total 100). And variable number of representatives based on the size of the state (total 435).

Don't think it matters who is stronger - in fact you might as well contact both offices. The important thing ultimately is who would be more willing to help you out.

Neither is stronger/weaker than the other as they are representatives in different houses of congress.
Contact your local congressman/congresswoman first.
You can find your representative here - https://forms.house.gov/wyr/welcome.shtml
A congressman deals with a much smaller geographical region (called congressional district) and would be more attuned to your individual case/problems.
You also should contact your senator but remember he / she has to represent the entire state. But it could very well happen that a good senator with great empathy to people may respond / help better than your congressman/woman.
