What I understand from all this is, passing a bill is a hell lot of work. Hundreds of bills hangin in there. Even Obama finding it hard to get some of his approved thru both the houses.

The resson why we are going thru this stress is that,
1. the Looooooong wait
2. Seemed easy approval in the house with unexpected mejority, this increased our expectation
3. Not educated enough of the full complexity of the whole process
4. All of IV members took this into their heart and worked on the only hope, so delay kinda kill us

here is my take. I waited for 12 years, still on H1. many of my friends are now eligible for citizenship. anyways....can't blame anyone for my situation.

There is only one hope for me, that's IV.
There is only one thing for me to do, that is to support them (IV)

It may take few more days, weeks or even months.....so what? We waited for years already....
Goal is more important than anything else. Lets support our team who is fighting in the frontline. Soon the day is going to come, to celebrate all of our hard work. Thank you for everyone for standing together.
It seemed easy, because members were not aware of the day to day up and downs before the House vote! All members saw/heard about the bill was when it came up for a vote and the passage.....

Thank you for your support and faith in IV. Please follow through with all the action items, encouraging your friends to reach out to their senators in every state; seek contributions for HR 3012. Follow IV on facebook

Somebody should create a poll to find out all members' take on flowers to Sen. Reid.

Donate to IV, ask your friends, families, co-workers, students and whoever you can influence to.

What would be the purpose of such a campaign? What would we be trying to accomplish by sending flowers to Senator Reid? It seems pretty silly. I am really scratching my head to figure out what it will ultimately do.

I don't know whether you are part of that July 2007 Flower campaign. Anyways, Senator Reid is the one that decides whether HR 3012 to be taken up on the Senate floor with Motion to Proceed/Motion to Cloture. He is the only one that can show us light at the end of tunnel.

Also, can you update your profile?

Looks like the best efforts that we could be doing is already being done. All we have to do now is to get more folks into sending emails and try to contribute more. Not discounting the idea of a flower campaign but it might be better not to rush into anything without a proper guidance/request from IV.

Default Flower Campaign May be counterproductive

Agree-this may be counterproductive and can go negative-
on the other side -Lets check senate.gov tomorrow --as today doubt if hr3012 would be taken up--

Please donate the flower money to IV.

Sending flowers may create a scene but advocacy will help to pass a law.

A Motion to Cloture will be taken up for voting only on 2nd calendar day of the following month if it is moved duly signed by at least 16 senators. A motion to cloture stop debating at the floor of the house and will be taken up for voting.

Pro HR 3012 senators have to get required signatures and to see the possibility that all the pro senators are available on voting day.

When it is read out second time on Monday , it looks like senators are having intension to follow the above statutory procedure and the thing done positively ASAP
