Has most people here already got their Green Cards? It appears so looking at the lukewarm response here!

Make no mistakes. CIR is going to pass in a year or two with or without EB Recapture/Visa increases. If we continue down this path of inaction and expecting others to act on our behalf CIR will pass with just the H1B increase to mollify the business community.

Anyone not participating in the Rally, please don't whine here if CIR passes with no EB increases/recapture. Don't blame IV, then, for your inaction. You want to see the real person to blame, just look in the mirror.

Please do that. Michigan is a vibrant chapter with some very active members.

Thanks for your idea. We appreciate such inputs. Our members are helpful in providing great ideas. We are really fortunate that way.

We also need volunteers to implement these ideas. One or two chapter leaders can't do it all by themselves. Once or twice a chapter leader may be inclined to call all 60+ members, but not always. Others need to stepup as as well. Take some responsibility from the chapter leader and work on it. Call the chapter leader if you feel there isn't much activity and you want to do more.

Chapter leaders and members need to work together to make this successful. One or two man/woman show will not take us far.

One reason could be that majority of people need to be motivated individually to participate.
Can state chapters individually work on members in their groups? Chapters leaders can call for some volunteers within their state who are willing to contact other members personally to encourage them to participate.

I have recently moved to detroit area from Illinois and will be joining Michigan chapter.

I'll attend both!

As Walking dude said, we need to mobilize hard and lobby hard so that we get some meaningful provision as part of CIR.
As someone said, elimination of country caps and recapture will go a long way in addressing the backlog.

If we don't stand up and speak up for ourselves, then who will?

Just contributed $100 towards Lobbying fund. Receipt ID: 1348-1487-1122-5637

Thanks,
GCisADawg

I will only attend Rally and would not be available for lobby day. But, I had already convinced 6 friends in office to come with me. So for Rally you can count me 1 + 6 = 7.

Capitol hill is just 4 blocks from my office.

Default How I wish!

I just happened to see this post and yes, I'd have loved to take part, but I am preparing to be sleep-deprived and puked-on around then.

Good luck all - let's do it one more time!

Hey guys,

Read this article and see if you need to attend a successful rally when CIR is being discussed.

http://www.ilw.com/immigdaily/digest...9.shtm#comment

It gives you an indication of how you/me/we might become the "unintended casualty" of the coming CIR. Visibility is the only thing that will prevent us becoming "unintended casualties". Our cause is the most just, our whimper however is the quietest.

I feel that a show of numbers, followed up by call/legislator visits at the appropriate time in the CIR process may be the only thing that puts our issue in the discussions. It basically is up to us and our activism.
