I am working on it. I am talking to a couple of my friends. I told them, DC was far, but at least come to Sugarland! I will give you an exact head count on Saturday.

Yesterday we had organized a Greet and meet chapter event at a popular restaurant in Houston for IV members.

ONLY 7 members (family) showed up.... YES..... READ just 7. This from a bustling metropolis called Houston.

TX (Houston) Members: Look into yourself. If you cannot commit to driving around 10 miles to just attend a luncheon on a lazy sunday afternoon, how on earth can you expect to influence lawmakers to rectify this horrible mess called legal immigration.

in Dallas. I guess everyone else is happy with their EADs and don't mind waiting another ten years for GC, nor do they care about anyone else who is behind them in the queue.

There are leaders and there are followers - the 7 families from Houston, and the 10 people in Dallas who came are the leaders. Majority of people are happy to be followers. The leaders have to keep going at it and not give up, the followers will follow.

IV is a great example of this. In Feb of this year we were about 9000, today there are over 24,000 with a lot many more active members. The critical mass will come - the leaders have to keep working at it.

Our respect and hats off to all those who made an effort to come, and thanks for working for all of us.

Thanks for the kind words - the issue here is - that with such excellent commitment - leaders have strived hard and the followers are yet to catch up.

Time is of essence here and followers MUST catch up. I know a lot of people who know all this and pretend as if nothing has happened. They do not talk about it, do not discuss, change topic, but when asked about color of reciepts etc.. they immediately jump and give u details.

This basically boils down to the fact that people always want to be in a state of denial and hypocracy. How to fix a system? No one wants to talk about it. How to mess up a system and live in the mess - everyone wants to talk about it

Hi guys,

I have recently moved to Houston from Chicago. I am still not completely settled here but understand the importance of making the state and local chapters stronger and bigger. I have sent a joining request to the TexasIV yahoo group and will try my best to contribute as much as I can.

My humble request to all IV members is to please join their own state/city chapters. This is the first step in becoming a stronger "grassroots" movement. We should all try and contribute in any manner that is feasible - time, money, energy, awareness, .....

Finally, my request is for everyone to stay positive, and start believing that getting the Green Card and making this our country will be great; however, if it does not work out, then our skills and competence will be appreciated anywhere in the world, including our countries of birth.

Thanks,

Hello.. I have been communicating with the Texas Chapter leaders per the post listing all the contacts..

I was able to speak with a couple of you over the past few weeks..

I have been writing to the Senators, Congressman and Congresswomen in our area about the NNCP and Employment based immigration delays..

It is good to have a coordinated effort. I am ok if there are only 7 - 10 people to kick start this. That is a good start for a leadership team.

Lets plan on a follow up meeting over the next few weeks.. Remember folks, some of our representatives are scheduled for elections soon.. Lets figure out how we can support the right candidates for highlighting our cause.

Lets meet and come up with an action plan..
