Needhelp,

This shows dedication towards IV. I know it take a lot to organize the event you are thinking off. Especially, if it a public place you take lot of responsibility to clean up.

Hope more people turn out to define their life!! GC is one of the important document which people need/want. They may not acknowledge but it is a fact. The fact hits home when people get laid off or are harassed by employee or has to travel abroad etc.

Well said brij - we are here baby sitting all the folks who logon to IV but arealways sitting on the fence. I really appreciate these great women are doing - needhelp and texanmom are really patient, and are working extremely hard. The community must wake up and show their support to these great women who are doing selfless help to the community. I am bumping these posts up so that people start actively involving in their state chapters

I like the idea of a GC quiz..

Questions (:))would be like:

Q: Why green card looks red?
A: Angry Eyes have become red due to 6 years wait and so no other color
detectable.

Q: What would be your advise to future applicant?
A: Do not file GC otherwise you will quickly become forgotten past

Q: What is the similarity between invading Iraq and applying for US GC?
A: You can decide to go in but you can not decide to come out.

Thanks to Needhelp,DallasBlue, Anant (Do not know IV Handle) for arranging this and all other attendees including my family for attending this. In my opinion Meet was gret. Food was great. At least all attendees summed up for one action and that is to meet local law makers. I think DallasBlue and Needhelp are going to feed us with more progress on that. By the way, NeedHelp, if you feel o.k, I would suggest to put GC Quiz on this and/or other forums so people who are interested can answer them and others can follow and update them.

My spirits were a bit down after coming back from all the excitement of the rally, but this was the perfect booster.

Thank you to all the attendees and families..

This was a good meeting with a lot of heated discussion.. We all have faced the brunt of this process one way or another, some much much worse. I feel even more charged up after hearing the stories today.

IV.. I am positive this group is going to start making a difference here at the grassroots.
Jaime, you can make it for the next one....

Let's focus on more action to stop the U.S. Reverse Brain Drain! Let's not let the iron cool!
