We should all feel proud that many co-sponsors are a result of efforts of IV and its members.When members ask proof of success, this is one of them.

Well done IV for the work so far - but we have to continue this push. Any idea on which other members we should call.

Note: I spoke with a few members to encourage them to call, there seems some confusion in their understanding of which congressmen we should call first. Calling the current co-sponsors may not be necessary but calling other members might still result in adding more co-sponsors (if we are able to convince them).

Friends, October bulletin is out and we are again seeing the retrogession. So forget about the talk that all dates will become current - it wont happen unless there is a change in law and past visa numbers are recaptured. This bill is our biggest and only hope until for atleast another year. Lets do our part and hope for the best (believe me - all it takes is less than an hour of your time).

Default Called

Called almost everyone on the list and urged for support.

To all others like me, who are hesitant and are not sure about the talking points. Below is something that can help.

You would most likely be talking to a person taking messages and not the congressman/woman directly.
And you also dont have to explain them the details of the bill, as they are very well aware of it. All you have to tell them is it is about HR5882.

After one or 2 calls, my message was standardized and this is what I used in all the calls.

Good Morning. I am calling in regards to the bill HR5882. (Pause for the other person to give you a go ahead and then continue). I would like to express my support for the bill and would like to request the support of Congressman/woman for the bill. If you can pass the message to the Congressman/Woman, that will be greatly appreciated.

Thank You and have a Great Day.


Some of the offices will ask you for your phone number and address, go ahead and give it to them. No harm.

And some might ask you where you are calling them from. My reply to them was - I am calling from the state of VA. I also reached out to my district's congressman, but also wanted to request the support of Congressman XXXX and so am calling your office.

I was initially hesitant and was not sure as to how to put it together, but it was real eazy and quick. After some calls, I even called up people who do not suppor this like Steve King, etc. It was only a matter of a call and letting them know our opinion. All that I lost was 2 minutes of my time and no money for my unlimited phone plan.

Not sure how much help it will be, but surely cannot hurt. It would atleast draw their attention due to the large call volume. Yes, some offices told me that they were receiving lot of calls for this bill.

So go on... do your part.
