FYI
Immigration Voice has FREE lawyer conference calls every week. You could take advantage of this and get your questions answered for free from from some top lawyers. You can even discuss the issue and directly ask follow up questions in the call.

If you come for the advocacy day in DC for lawmaker meetings, we will also have a lawyer there. You can ask your questions directly to the lawyer for free.

Members registered for the Advocacy Days, please check your emails for the conference call details. Log into the call to get all your questions answered before you leave your homes.

Members considering to attend the event, the time is running out - register NOW.

I am still looking for people from KY, AL, AR, OK, IA, IN, UT, OH......

OH has high immigrant populated cities such as Columbus, Cleveland, Cincinnati - has poor participation for the advocacy days.

Default Accomodation/Commuting in DC

I booked my ticket a month ago but haven't yet figured out accommodation and travel within DC. I'm flying into DC on Sunday, 3rd morning.

Is someone looking to share a hotel room? Alternately, is any DC area member still looking to offer a spare sleeping bag?

I don't know how the DC area works but would preferably like to stay closer to the event hotel. If not, I'm open to renting a car and sharing cost to get in/out of DC (heard the traffic is a nightmare though).

Please PM me directly or reply here. I'm joining the conference call tonight as well.

Default Our adversaries will be in DC as well

Those of you that are in the fence on whether to support IV or not, see below, our adversaries are not sitting on the fence, they are mobilized and will be in DC the same week as us advocating for the exact opposite of what we want. Please consider this and support IV.

Never ceases to amaze me how well funded and organized our adversaries are. More the reason to make the sacrifice and be there representing EB-immigrants!

Is any sort of relief worth $100 to you? It sure is to me.


FAIR Announces Dates for Hold Their Feet to the Fire 2011 - Yahoo! News

FAIR Announces Dates for Hold Their Feet to the Fire 2011 - Yahoo! News

50 Talk Radio Hosts to Gather in Washington for National "Town Hall" on Immigration

WASHINGTON, March 23, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) announces April 6 and 7 as the dates for Hold Their Feet to the Fire 2011. Fifty talk radio hosts from all across the United States, led by Roger Hedgecock of Radio America Networks, are scheduled to participate in Hold Their Feet to the Fire 2011, making it the largest immigration "town hall" of the airwaves to date. This year's event marks the fifth time FAIR has organized and hosted a live radio row devoted to the discussion of immigration policy.

The fifty broadcasters will spend two days interviewing members of Congress, immigration reform experts, and law enforcement personnel. In addition to the broadcast component, dozens of activists from across the country will be in Washington to meet their elected representatives to urge them to enact immigration reforms that protect and serve the interests of the American people.

Among the key issues to be discussed by participants at Hold Their Feet to the Fire 2011 are:
  • The need to enact mandatory use of E-Verify by all U.S. employers to protect American workers from losing jobs to illegal aliens.
  • The refusal of the Obama administration to effectively enforce existing immigration laws.
  • The mounting costs of illegal immigration at the federal and local level.
  • Public opposition to all amnesty or legalization proposals for illegal aliens.
  • The need to reduce overall levels of immigration to the United States.

Let us focus on advocacy event for the next few days on the forum.

Some distracting threads would be deleted by moderators in the interest of staying focused on advocacy day work. There is a lot of work to be done. We are still short on our funding goal. I urge everyone to help us out .


Please fill the form ImmigrationVoice.org - Advocacy Update and let us know your schedule asap. If someone has not made up their mind to come, please book the tickets now. If you have not yet contributed, please contribute now.

All DC/VA/MD members should come and attend the advocacy day anyway. Please confirm to IV that you are coming.
