Default Re: call or use the email form?

I am at work and cannot use the phone.

I noticed on the website that each senator has a form for contacting them. Is it okay to use this form or is the phone call the preferred way of contacting them?

Called 5 senators immigration staff with the exception of senator Jeff Bingaman as his staffer told me I need to be from New Mexico to take my message.

Good Job IV core team, volunteers and members I am sure it will make a difference(keep calling and sending faxes- volumes make our voices heard in the capitol)

Default Called 2 senators calling more

For those from CA
Please call (415) 403-0100 if you cant reach the DC office (202) 224-3553.
Yes someone made a good point about not being shy. Most people on the other end are message takers probably tracking the type of calls recieved on a spread sheet. So people pick up the phones and call OR be prepared for a painfull wait where you cant buy a house, cant switch jobs while your employer sucks you dry, your parents visas get rejected cause your Adjusting Status and all the crazy stuff.

Called both GA senators and the ones mentioned in this thread.

Lets keep the action going guys!!! The senator's staff keep track of number of callers supporting any specific issue. So this IS the real deal.

Keep dialing!!

Contacted VA Senator George Allen's office. Tried the other senator John Warner's office. Was getting a busy tone.

Also contacted 5/6 of the senators posted on the 1st page.

Default called CA senator offiice Barabara

and reiterated support for CIB.

Although I explained the other issues (filing I-485 while PD not current, hard country limit), I am not sure if the staff understood the full detail of what I said.

Also a tip for future callers, you can mention upfront:

"I am a member of a volunteer organization called Immigration Voice which advocates legislative changes for improving the GC processing for legal immigrants.
I have been a legal resident of the USA for x years and my employer is sponsoring me for a GC."

if they get nothing from the call they will at least get the IV part and will help imrove IV profile.

Mention clearly that we want Section 502(2) removed-- at least they'll get that part.

Default Bill Number?

Hello Super Mods and Admins:

Are you talking about Frist's S2454 Bill? Section 502 in this bill is related to "ADDITIONAL IMMIGRATION PERSONNEL"

Sorry to be late on the board but just want to make sure that I make the right impact.

Also, in Frist's S2454 bill there are a bunch of amendments, specifically Lamar's amendment S.AMDT.3193.

In this amendment there is Title V -- Backlog Reduction which has Page: S2645. In this page, there is Section 508 - VISAS FOR INDIVIDUALS WITH ADVANCED DEGREES. What is this about?

In general, if you can provide the specific Bill Number, Amendment Number (if any) and the Section Number that will help us then everyone will feel comfortable to call their senators. Also the message gets across to the personnel who are picking up the phone in the Senator's office.

Thanks for your time and effort.

Default SJC bill, not Frist bill

Frist's bill is 2454.

We are talking about 502 of bill that came out of Senate Judiciary Commt. Not S 2454.

Its not decided yet that the bill that came out of Senate Jud Commt will be inserted into 2454 after deleting the entire content of 2454.
