Folks, can we keep the pressure by getting the retweet going. I do believe that people genuinely concerned and need help. Furthermore everyone want to help, but we need to step up, only praying and hoping for the best or just doing your share won't do, you have to become the torch bearer, the leaders in your own right and lead your friends and family in this time of distress. Many people around you may be affected by this reversal but they may not know what to do, it is the duty and responsibility of each one of us who knows the IV agenda or any other action to inform them and inspire them to join.

Again 850 RT is an impressive count but is it enough for the Admins to sit up and take a look? Need to show the power of numbers brothers and sisters. Let's keep going.

Considering vb dates reversal. I don't see dates moving beyond July 2011 atleast for next two years. The only hope is hr213 which has its own hurdles. The only hope is EAd + ap for i140 which is also unknown. Basically people whose priority dates beyond July 2011 are screwed. Correct me if I am wrong here.

I am not seeing any media coverage for this issue. Can we run an article or something on any national news paper/web site explaining what happened? like WSJ or NYTimes, etc?

Default Media Coverage for legal Immigration

I have been following these 3 places who do investigative journalism( unlike Fox and CNN ). Could we reach out to them to create a piece on Legal Immigration and the issues faced by legal immigrants and their families:

- RT - https://www.rt.com/
- VICE news - https://news.vice.com/about
- last-week-tonight-john-oliver - Last Week Tonight with John Oliver - HBO Talk

I am exploring ways as to how to reach out to them and suggest a topic.

Admin,
Shall we start a new thread and create an "action item" for media coverage.

That is a good idea, I have been following John Oliver. And his show on Net neutrality got huge number of views and the ideas put forth in the show were considered by the authorities.

I noticed that folks are sending emails to Senator / congressman explaining the situation. Instead of sending mails/emails, can we talk to Senator / congressman's office ?

Should I wait for Admin's to give a go ahead?

Default Getting media involved

During the 2007 visa bulletin fiasco, the story was run by major media all over the country. New York Times even released some inside information in an Editorial titled “Immigration Malpractice.” (see article here: Zhang - U.S. Immigration & Counseling Home)

Having media run the story will be major pressure point. Admin, is IV planning to get media coverage? How do we get media involved?

I just had a talk with Admin. Wants to hold back on that. Strategy will be announced based on the ongoing meetings at DC.

HA HA thats so true. After playing with emotions of legal immigrants in this hard time, and collecting their information on the promise of filing lawsuits to be their messiah, Greg has now backtracked and wants to play the advocacy game. He now wants people to talk to his buddy from Cato so that they can play new games with our emotions. I am excited to know what is coming tomorrow,
Greg Siskind is filing the suit!

Default Stay positive!

Good posts to stay on topic so far! Like many others, this vb reversal news was a big bummer for me too. I have been in US for more than 10 years but filed GC only 5 years ago seeing all the depressing long lines which Indians are subjected to. I filled up the doc with my story , retweeted and will join IV and support the good people here who stand up for a just cause and fairness. Stay positive brothers. It will all work out in the end. My message just wants to touch on the positivity and hopefully others feel the hope too. Hang in there and everything would turn out fine. Let us join all our energies together and get the right thing going for us legal immigrants.
