Default Attn folks with later priority dates!

***********Look my message down below*********************
Folks,
It is very important that the people with later priority dates for example 2007 or later for EB2 India and 2003 or later for EB3 India, assume leadership roles in IV state chapters. Currently, it is mainly the people with earlier priority dates who are active and they now after very long wait have started getting their green cards.

We don't want others to go through the same long wait and want to continue the movement by passing on the torch to the people with later PDs. These people should consider themselves lucky as they have an excellent forum to organize themselves. For most others, there was none existed, when they started their immigration journey.

You must all realize and appreciate that people have other priorities in life, work and family related. As they get their green cards they refocus to leading a Normal life and rightly so. Thus, it is upto the affected people to take charge now!. If you don't do it , this movement will die and your wait will become endless.

Just in case you are wondering , my PD is Nov 2005 EB2. And personally, I intend to become inactive the day I will get my green card and refocus my effort on another volunteer activity related to Hydrogen Fuel promotion.

I hope the message is clear!

I personally think what you guys have done is tremendous. What does one have to do to get really involved? I'm in San Francisco and would LOVE to get more involved - especially when it comes to getting Public Relations and press attention for IV.

Your guidance please.

Sincerely,
Sweta from SF...

Singhsa3, you brought up a very very valid point. Its quite important for people with later priority dates to come forward. Think of a situation like last year (June July) when USCIS approved the GC's in bulk and majority of people with earlier priority dayes got their GC. Even though this will not create a vaccum because people will still visit IV and help the other people, but only a few with GC will contribute their time and money for the cause. This time around USCIS is approving all those people who were stucked because of FBI name checks, so very soon all EB2 from 2001 to April 2004 will happily walk away with the GC's.

I really appreciate your forward thinking. People with later priority dates must become active and start taking leadership at the state chapters.

100% I agree with Singhsa.

Members with later PD's should come forward to take over the current activities and start to initiate new activities.

I am no longer in the race. My race is over. But to look back here is what we did
a) Visited Washington DC , mostly on our own expense
b) Organized numerous meeting in NJ to increase the awareness
c) Coordinated DC rally
d) Handed overthe fliers at the India day parade urging people to come and help.
e) On the negative side for few , I also participated with few others to make all IT jobs, zone four.

What we were trying to do was not only for oneselves but ourselves. Unfortunately, the awareness is just not there. Ideally, I would have expected people with later priority dates to be more active but they are not . Almost all of "active" us had PD from early 2006 or earlier and most of them EB2. Now guess what, we are done and we could have been a great and powerful organization, but for your support. Hence, I have issues with the folks in our community for the following reasons
1. Not looking out for themselves.
2. Expecting too much from one group/persons and not taking inititative themselves.
3.Not educating themselves on what is the difference between legal /law and administrative rules, DOC VS DOL VS USCIS.
4.Not being able to analyze what can be done or cannot not be done.
5.Just being afraid to even talk to a lawmaker.
6.Asking those who take inititatives do things with an authority as if we were paid to do this on your behalf.
7.Not realizing how much your are loosing or can loose because of your precarious situation.
