I have been sending emails, as and when I see email addresses, I think we need a YOUTUBE video recorded tomorrow. Anyone in DC?>

Default tweak our message a bit now?

we should probably say that we like the idea that flowers are being forwarded to injured members of the armed forces. We would however request Mr Gonzalez to accept the messages that we are sending with the flowers, as those messages are meant for HIM.

Default Looks like USCIS withdrew the message from the portal

The message no longer appears on USCIS portal now.

Default Of course it worked!

Of course the flower campaign worked.

How many times have we been able to elicit a response from USCIS? Or queries from so many different news organizations. The idea was to take a collective action and get media attention and that's exactly what we got, didn't we?

So stay tuned guys ...... victory is not far away!!

BTW whether or (as someone said, more likely) not we are strictly following Gandhian principles, I am sure he would have been unhappy for people who opt for inaction as opposed to any peaceful means of protest.

Yes I think flower campaign is our great success. Hopefully media and politicians will pay some attention to our issues.

Default Official reaction to the post by USCIS

USCIS has decided that the flowers sent by skilled, legal immigrants to director Dr. Emilio Gonzalez will be forwarded to injured service members recuperating at Walter Reed Army Medical Center and at Bethesda Naval Hospital.

We welcome the fact that Dr. Gonzalez acknowledged the symbolic gesture of our protest. We are even more happy that these flowers will brighten the day of our injured service brethren. It is their contribution to the American freedom that has made this country such a desirable destination for highly skilled professionals from all over the world.


We also want to convey to the service personnel receiving those flowers that our message accompanying those flowers is, "Thank You and God Bless You".

hey wait, you need to talk about retrogression of EB!! Thats the whole point of this thing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In addition to the message of "god bless" to the service personnel, we have a message of get-well-soon for Mr Gonzalez. We want him to stop wasting visa numbers, and to provide more transparency and communication in how VB dates are set. We want them to provide a clean honest answer of what USCIS did in June to exhaust the visa numbers and the motiviation behind doing that.
