Default ?

trying to understand your problem?

the goal (and you may have to chew on this a while) of this campaign is not to bend rules. it is to create media attention for our problems.
this may be a catalyst to anything- 485 filing, bridging amendments...who knows?

the point is we have to keep trying. sounds like you want to slink away into your "reality". well, since we are all living in fantasy, friend, please let us enjoy it. thanks for your encouragement btw.

USCIS people...trying to make fun of our misery

I do not think so, as our message goes along with the flowers. So I really doubt whether USCIS has patience to remove those message tags before sending them to the Hospital.

DONT DO THAT.

Let the flowers go to USCIS and let them do whatever they want with the flowers. Kindly dont jinx this campaign by cancelling your orders and asking for refunds.

Default YOu are missing the point.

I dont expect USCIS to get all emotional because of our flowers and issue an update to their updated bulletin saying they will now accept and issue green cards.
The point is that we need to make awareness that there is a HUGE community that gets affected by every move they make and that we are an active and cohesive community and also to create awareness of this debacle.

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.

The British made us feel in the hey days that living in our own country was a previlege extended by their administration...even in that environment...Gandhigiri worked....but not without several initial failures..and Gandhi himself had acknowledge that non-violent resistence can succeed even against hitler but not without several initial failures...

The fact that we could get Mr. Gonzalez to even respond to the flower campaign itself speaks that Gandhigiri has worked...the publicity that this will generate will be of immense help....

It's too late flowers have shipped. They will have to be delivered somewhere, it'll just force the fedex/dhl not to accept a forward from USCIS.

You are right! It seems USCIS has an "acceptance" probem...

Can't accept

1. Legitimately filed I-485s
2. Affectionately sent flowers
3. To top it all, its own "ineeficiency"

Flowers are sent to USCIS, USCIS has to accept them and then put them on a truck and send them to the hospital, GREAT!!
That is just awesome news headline!!

Default Stay away

from doing that, what do you think you would achieve by the flowers being delivered at the hospital instead of the USCIS, the point has been made and the Director has acknowledged the effort - That was the end goal and infact the flowers will do more benefit to those in the hospital.

Sending flowers was a way to register our protest. That I believe is being accomplished. USCIS forwarding them to injured service men is OK with me.
