Hey Amit.vasp
I went to Home | U.S. Senator Richard Burr of North Carolina and chose Contact Us link. In there I mentioned "Attn: Ben" in message body and I referenced our phone conversation.

The guy who deals with Mendez's office is going to get a nice laugh out of that.

Called Anna Eshoo's office again. They are aware of the issue and they noted down my concern. They didn't connect me to the immigration staff unlike last time (Fri). I will call again tomorrow.

Called Dianne Feinstein's office and they noted down my concern. They said they are aware of this issue as well. Will followup with them again soon.

Called Barbara Boxer's office. No one at the DC office answered (busy for a long time). Called her Oakland office and left a voicemail for the immigration staff.

I will followup with all offices again tomorrow. Until they provide an answer.

Default Open a case?

Called up Sen. Diane Feinstien and Sen.Barbara Boxer offices and in both the cases we were requested to open up a case which has a privacy statement. Until it's open they won't be able to discuss the issue. Has anyone else faced the same issue?

Default ca senators

I called the ca senators office this morning and was able to explain the whole situation in the full. They did not ask for any privacy statement or any other thing that jacob was asking.
When they ask for case - tell them that this is not your specific individual case and for thousands of people. Even if they take your case number all they will do is ask USCIS and then let you know the same thing that you can get by accessing the USCIS website in the first place. So always say it is not your specific case. They are never of help in such cases anyway. Make it clear that its is legislative issue and you would like their support in getting White house legislative contact to probe this issue and get to the root cause of why this happened, how to fix , when will it be fixed and to revert it .. tell all this!

I am planning on calling the senators office from CA tomorrow. There seem to be a good number here from LA and also in facebook there was interest for meeting LA lawmakers.
There are two senators office in LA downtown and there is one local congresswoman in San Pedro Downtown - I have been to the San Pedro one and I am thinking if there is enough support we can visit all three offices and will also support if you want to go to nearby ones like Longbeach etc. We can coordinate that on facebook and figure thta out .. please join the FB group of CA chapter. Lots going on there.

Others - the negativity has gone down off late .. lets continue to keep it that way .. read up all posts and all views before commenting .. let us go with IV and also if you like other routes, execute them silently no need to advertise. Others will do as they feel well. Everyone here is a mature adult with families and kids and let us all act like one too.

Default got voice mail from diane fienstein office in CA

that they got my message and they are looking into it .. got couple other senators from other state where I reside also .. today will continue calling few more senators and congressmen... I implore other folks also to call their resident state lawmakers as well as one where they work or had previos relationships ..

I somehow get the feeling that this time around people are less enthusiastic compared to 2007 when andhra population and gujus and tamils and marathis and practically everyone who also did not have any interest in the game - citizens, gc or students or someone down the line .. everybody pitched in ..this time around sadly I see some are keeping quite or maybe as IV says they are contributing and working in the background.

Default no longer calling?

Is this thread dead ? No one is partcipating .. we are still calling the lawmakers today also right ? One thing I noticed is the big states of WA CA NY NJ VA TX and so on .. there are standard responses .. we need the more middle states such Ohio .. that is important , then Iowa, nebraska, maybe montana wyoming etc .. oregon or some places where we have less presence but the people there are willing to listen more. They understand the situation and do by the book and follow up. NC or SC might also fall in that category .. this listen to you. Florida or IL or MA etc might be higher on desi population but not sure if they are aware of this and participating at all . But if you worked in these states previously please use that .. look up the old zipcode and address and then call the local lawmakers from there .. Vermont, New Hampshire .. these are all good listeners same with any of the obscure states .. Not sure if anyone called Hawaii - there is an Indian origin senator right there .. there is also New Mexico and I dont know obscure states that are still follow the textbooks. If noise comes from all corners then at least we can be sure that we are being heard.
