Message from USCIS Director Emilio Gonzalez

I understand that individuals are planning to send flowers to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) beginning on Tuesday, July 10. USCIS has made arrangements to forward those flowers to our injured service members recuperating at Walter Reed Army Medical Center and at Bethesda Naval Hospital.

*************************

USCIS' blasted PR brain is working this time. Dammit. Still this will increase press coverage. Let the reporters you are talking to know.
This is perfect. It will drag more media attention!!!

Default Let us send even more flowers

Good thing: Walter Reed.

Something happening at Walter Reed Hospital has more value in newsworthiness than something happening at headquarters of USCIS offices. Coz Walter Reed means veterans means military means extra media attention.

Default I am not sure if they can actually forward these flowers.

My flowers from FTD got shipped through DHL. Are they going to stop the DHS guy and ask him to go to the Hospital????

They would have to collect the flowers first and then send them there themselves.

Thats good enough for us!

The flowers must go to USCIS. Let them forward it to the hospital. We need them to go to USCIS to make the media story. I don't think they can intervene our orders.

Will you guys stop this madness atleast now?. If US started bending rules for people who send flowers, then everyone will try to manipulate the system. There is a lot of difference between the circumstances of originla gandhigiri and now. That was our country back then, for crying out loud.We are in a foriegn country and the issuance of visa a previlege not a right.Why cant you guys understand this simple fact?. Now stop making fools of yourself and get a life.

That USCIS director gave a good answer. Is your pain more than those citizens of this country who gave their limbs and life for US?.

BTW, i am one of the guys who couldn't file I-485 because of this fiasco. But i understand the reality.

Default I am Glad.

I feel really happy, for once USCIS acknowledged our efforts and also the end results is really good because the injured will recieve flowers from some one they will never meet.
There is strength in the ways of GandhiJi.

Default Media Management

IV Core - Urge you to publish a PRESS RELEASE tomorrow to build upon the current message.

Thank the Director for acknowledging the grassroots democractic process currently underway. Acknowledge your genuine happiness that these flowers will find a new home where they will cheer up and provide company to young men and women who are preserving and protecting great ideals of democracy. This is a clarion call to keep the pain and frustration of high skilled legal immigrants in mind when formulating and executing aspects of legislation and public policy for legal immigration.

Kindly realize that we know full well that flowers dont change laws and regulations. If that were case, Microsoft would have drowned DC with roses to get H1 quota increase.

We are not stupid. But the flower campaign does have a purpose bigger than 485 filing. Its called media attention. Now kindly stop complaining, trust IV leadership that has run this org successfully for past 18 months, and please help us by doing your part.

Whatever way it is USCIS has again lived upto its July fiasco, return I 485 applications without accepting and now send the flowers away to hospitals without accepting....end of the day...no evidence left behind..

Seems popular logic with USCIS....

Call the place where you've ordered flowers and ask for a refund if flowers are delivered elsewhere. It should be up to USCIS to recieve and then ship those flowers to the hospitals.
