After listening to you people, I sent a personalized email to my representative's office requesting him to co-sign the letter. Whatever helps.

I have tried calling Rep Matt Cartwright's office. I never got to legislative aid but left the message. I called one more time for support but not sure if that's happening

Left a message and sent an email to David Cicilline's office requesting him sign the letter. Although I am not his constituent but my workplace falls in his district. His name is on the list, so I took the chance. Hopefully he will co-sign the letter.

Default Contacted Rep Brad Ashford (NE)

I got a call from Congressman's Ashfords Legislative Assistant Jen Piat in response to my email on the 'Dear Colleague' letter to them. Was informed that they were supportive of the initiative but the cogressman was more in favor of comprehensive immigration reform. I also mentioned about H.R 213. Apparently they were not aware of it and mentioned that they would look into it.
