This is also an awesome opportunity for you to carpool.

If you are unable to attend this event due to unavoidable circumstance, then future events will happen.

Illinois wake up. Fight for your 'Status Updates'. If you keep your actions to help IV pending; remember your 485 will also remain 'Pending' for the next 6 to 12 years.

And in the meantime be ready to shell out $5000 for yearly/3-years H1B extension (coming soon) and $700 for EAD/AP every year (already there). If all that money was contributed to IV lobbying funds, by now, we would be seeing 'Application Approved' (The REAL status) .

Get organized before it's too late. Join your State Chapter

Come on Bulls - this is the time to rise ..... lets all rise as high as the Sears Tower ...........

By getting active "you are not doing any favour to us, but for yourselves" so if you have excuses then your excuse is "hurting your cause" and no one else's

Come on folks, join the State chapter now and start mobilizing. This is the time to rise and not sit back giving excuses.

Since this was the first meet up, we discussed what the process of employment based GC is, what is happening in the political circles and what to expect in the future.

We decided to have a meet up once in 3-4 months.

I hope everyone had a safe, refreshing and joyful Diwali.
