Quote from One of my friends who moved out of the US. I feel he put it nicely when I reached out to him.

Even though I have no stake as I moved out of the U.S, I believe Immigration Voice is a great movement that has indeed helped move the Green Card process. A lot needs to be done still and the folks who wield the power need to made aware of the grim fact that if the Green Card process continues to move at a glacial pace, the US will have to contend with some of its best immigrant engineers (many of whom have received Masterís degrees from the best of the Universities all along the West and East coasts and the MidWest) will just look for greener pastures, either in their home countries or in other countries that give their qualifications the true credit they deserve.

Lawmakers should realize that while granting someone a green card is a privilege offered by the US, the US also enjoys the privilege of the services of hardworking immigrant men and women who contribute incredibly to the economy. Their experience and qualifications are strong enough that other countries will be more than happy to give them a place to settle along with endless lucrative opportunities.

Default Booth in Fremont Mela

I belive a couple thousand Indians get together and celebrate.

Here is the link to the event --> 2012 Festival of India and Parade | Fremont | FunCheapSF

This is a very good opportunity to Market and canvass about this rally. I will not be able to go because of other compulsions. If any body is going, please carry few hundred printouts of San Jose rally flyers and distribute. Please spread the message.

This is a unique opportunity to spread the word among Indian brothers and sisters.


We've a dedicated booth setup in the Fremont Mela... If you can spare some time, please go there and help the volunteers.

Default NJ/NY flyer drive

We distributed 600 flyers at India Day Parade today. Within 2 hours we ran out of flyers. We met with at least 25 people stuck in backlog. Many people asked questions and committed support to IV.

Please PM me if you are interested in similar drive at "Chaalo Gujarat - 2012" - World Gujarati Conference event at Raritan Center, NJ on Aug 31, Sept 1 and 2. Approx. 15,000 people will visit the event. www.worldgujaraticonference.com/

Default Suggession

In Bay Area, there are a couple radio stations Indians listen to during the weekend. Especially Telugu, Tamil, and Hindi. The website is klok1170am.com.

I guess we can reach them to grab more attendees.

Guys, I am from NJ too. In fact I am attending the rally at San Jose, and have also volunteered to (and making) calls to people on the west coast. Please let me know how we can co ordinate and distribute flyers. BTW I live 2 miles from Oak tree road.

Thanks

Here is what I wrote for someone who was complaining about a 2 month delay in one of his forms on another thread . I think people need to get up and ask the system to be fixed. We do not do rally every month. And who knows if there will ever be a rally again if HR 3012 gets stuck. So then do not blame anyone else. Just blame ourselves for not showing up.
-----
Welcome to the world of immigration. 2 months delay is nothing. After filing 140 prepare to wait for years and even decade.
It takes 2 months or even more to fill and sign a simple form because everyone is okay with it. And on top of that many will line up to worship people who file simple forms. I have always maintained that this backlog and the messed up system exists because of immigrants themselves. Fault is immigrants and the attitude. This is the reason we see so many posts on the forums where people will either whine or tell a story of getting screwed. But none will take matters in their own hand and fix the system. Posts like this will continue forever unless people get up from their whining, tracking, predictions and join a big movement to fix the system. Come for the rally and that will be the start of a big change. Many will follow after HR3012 is passed.
