Default Calling again

It's suprisingly difficult to get people to make calls - most of them think it is silly or wrong to lobby, when the fact of the matter is that, the louder ones are those who get heard - not necessarily the ones who have a stronger case

Anyway, since it has been some time since I made the calls myself, I will go ahead and make the calls again. I guess others who have called before can do the same.

It means the immigration sub-committee will discuss and vote on this issue and it is a positive sign in my view that the democratic leadership is allowing this to go forward. If it passes the subcommittee then it will be sent to the floor and may be scheduled for a vote there. I am desperately hoping for a floor vote on this, hopefully the democratic leadership will see the justice on this one.

The CHC needs to realize that this is not about elitism. The EB community has been through this cycle of delayed EB reform for the sake of CIR on previous occasions and continuously since 2005. We have never opposed a pathway to legal status for the undocumented. It is time that they give us some consideration for our own plight. Failing which they will be seen by moderates as the hardliners.

Make the calls people. Your call may make the difference, especially if you are in the congressional district of a key contact, please, please make that call. Make a call and consider it your duty to persuade another colleague do one too.

I have asked this question before and have called around 4 reps so far. Do I just leave a message or ask for the Congressman / woman? The receptionists are probably not even writing down the messages.

Perhaps we can write as well in addition to the calls. There is still around a week before the bills come to the floor.

Hi Aah_GC
I called all the representatives and I thought they were not taking down any thing and way it even useful. basically I was doubting like you did so to one of the aides I asked did he get down the numbers and he just repeated them right back. Also any further doubts I had are cleared now as I see a lot of reps we were targeting actually becoming co-sponsors to these bills. So I would suggest (and urge) you to definitely call every lawmakers in all the 2 calling items. I mean it can never hurt right??
