Default New Year Resolution

As 2011 begins, our problems have remained the same. Can every IV member visiting the site pledge to meet with at least 1 senator from their state this January? Do this for your own GC.

Call to take an appointment, send the appointment info to the ivcoordinator and get the help to prepare for the meeting.

Let the pledges begin............
(starting with me)

It is sad to know that there is a heated debate on whether to give $2 or not, but not even a warm response to an action item that will actually benefit us!

The dream activists have been campaigning for over 10 years - constantly. Their belief rests in the fact, until their problems related to immigration are not solved, they will fight for it and support any organization that is championing their cause!

That is the difference between us and them.
We talk and they act.
We fight pettily and they stand strongly united.
We have nothing to fear but are afraid and they have everything to fear from the law (being illegal) yet they are fearless.
We never try and they never give up
We are about end results without working out the means, while they are all about means and are close to getting the result - and if they don't, they will try again!

In light of what happened with Dream Act (and the amount of work the undocumented community put in), our community has to wake up and be active. We need to inform our lawmakers of our problems, and get their support. It is not easy in the current economy. But if we do nothing, our only hope for gc is to wait - and for people like me in eb3 - its going to be a long wait!

If meeting with lawmakers helps us, then we should all take this pledge.

With the current congress, unless we actively push for legislation on high skilled immigration, it will be unlikely to be taken up. We MUST meet with lawmakers.

Last night on Jon Stewart, Sen. Gillibrand (NY) was on discussing about the 9/11 bill and its passage. She talked about how the affected group were in DC knocking doors of every legislator for the past nine years........she also talks about advocacy and its role in the democracy.

Something that we have to understand.

Are you a really important VIP that he will respond to you? There are hundreds of people writing, emailing and calling Senators daily. Do you think the staff has all the time to read through all emails carefully , respond and implement our ideas pronto? Why will they? We do not vote. We are not citizens. And most of us do not even lobby for our own issues. We want everything for free without spending $25 per month and simply by sending a couple of emails! The least you can do is to personally go to his office and talk to the Senator himself. It will cost you only a couple of hours and few miles of fuel. If we can take our family to Disney and spend thousands on eating out and vacations, why cant we spend some time and money on something that is so important to our lives. It beats me. It is more irritating when highly educated folks simply say that they have sent emails to Senators or signed an online petition and nothing has happened. It proves each one of us is to be blamed for our inefficiency in dealing with the greencard problem.

EastIndia, if you read my post, I was not complaining nor was I saying that I was a VIP! I am not aware of a lot of issues, but after having heard that it is important to meet with lawmakers, I tried to contact them to get the appointment (BTW, it was to meet with them - and yes spending a couple of hours and fuel!) However, after not receiving any response I wanted to know how to proceed........I was not giving up!!!!!!! I even called the office, unfortunately they said the person handling this issue is not available........... Are you suggesting that I land in front of their office and demand an appointment??

GC is a big part of my life and Disney is a big part of my child's life. Unless you are suggesting that I put a clamp on my child's wishes until I get my GC, back off!!!!!!

I will continue my efforts to get the appointment!
