You can PM me your facebook handle and I will send you a personal request for attending this event.
Thank you for the invite. Yes, I will be attending the event. I am coordinating with my friend who is also an active member of IV. Would you please let me know how to PM on this forum, I joined 3 days back so still lot of things to learn.

Administrator2,

I am really glad that you took out time and explained the whole situation and agenda of IV vs. other organizations. I hope that now the members who got frustrated with the disappointed of Monday will be able to understand and think rationally.

Keep up the good work. You have support of most of us. We will surely get there.

Admin2, Thank you for explaining in so much detail. I know that companies are only lobbying for H1B visa. Your message validates it. What is IV's position on H-1B visa?

IV is doing amazing work to represent people like us who have no representation. I have signed up for June advocacy. Sincerely Thank you

IV's position on expanding H-1B visa was clarified elsewhere. Without increasing the green card count, just increasing the H-1B visa numbers every year would add more people to the backlog. This would keep these people in the clutches of their employers for decades, which would result in giving a disadvantage to the citizens and green card holders, as well would keep the salaries as low to the ground as possible.

Given green card will free them, which would level set the employment market for everyone.

Hi waitingwaiting, I have read your responses on many of this forum's threads. And you always sound like an outsider, judging the nature of your response.

My question is just this, since you spend a lot of time on the forum, I just want to know if you are boots on the ground volunteer (take part in the advocacy events etc) ? Please don't get offended, its a straight forward question. With the time and interest you have, you would be a great addition to the team.

Thank you for asking. I am very motivated to work with every other motivated person in IV.
I really want to be there for advocacy days next month. I have put in a request to my boss for leave. If granted I will be there. If not, I will donate an amount about equal to my airfare, hotel stay etc in Washington DC.

Administrator2, Wow this makes a lot of sense!! Thank you for taking the time to explain.

A lot of people are with you. They mostly don't post messages but they know you are worker for them. I have many friends at work who don't read forums but we all frequently talk about IV. A lot of people support you. Your post explains why.

Thanks for taking my question in the right spirit. We have some great self motivated individuals who are doing the weight lifting, i myself feel ashamed many a times when I know that I am failing to do my part. I hope your boss will grant permission. Best of luck!

Hi braveone, Wonderful to see your message of support. We can show our support to political parties by voting during or by donating to their campaign. In case of our immigration betterment agenda, we can donate and more than that, to actually take part in the actual event - advocacy.

Please get your friends to do one of these, verbal support does not help the cause a lot, though that is good as well to attract more people to do the other two.

I heard that I864 needs to be submitted with 485 only if beneficiary/derivative is out of country. 864 instructions section "Who needs this form" is bit confusing for new comer.
In principal applicant's 485 application I would anyway be submitting EVL, W2 and bank statements. Do we still need to submit I864 along with I485 of my H4 spouse? Please reply.
COuld somebody throw some light on my query please? Many thanks!

This will be the first time I will be attending IV advocacy campaign at the US Capitol. I have been trying to attend for the last few times but something came up or the other, but now I realize that if I don't sacrifice a bit of my convenience and represent myself (on this wonderfully strong platform provided by IV) no one is going to stand up for me. I hope to see many, if not all, of you at Washington DC next month and make this campaign a huge success.

We shall overcome this one day, hopefully very soon.
