Hi All,

I am an IV member living in Southern California. I wanted to give a loud 'hello' out to all members in this region. It will be great to know some of the members so that we can interact. Can you please post back a response with what counties you live in? This way we can get some idea about where members are residing.

Looking forward to your responses.

Cheers,

Jimi

Hello Jimi,

Thank you for taking the lead in southern California. Activating State Chapters is a great idea. We all need to be more active in our local areas. This will help a long way in connecting with other IV members to create more awareness and ultimately achieve success.

Thanks again,
WaldenPond

Great to hear from someone in Southern California! I live in Orange County. Do you have other friends who are members on IV and in Southern California region?

Thanks,

Dear Jimi,

I am here in Los Angeles County in the city of Pasadena. It would be really nice if we could organize the So Cal Chapter and coordinate our " meet the lawmakers type meetings in the LA/San Diego area.

Thanks for taking the lead on this one. I will ask others that I know in LA to join this capter as well.

Thanks.

AS

Good to hear from you. Yes, I think we need to touch base with as many members in So Cal as possible. I would like to meet you all and plan out some of the things we can do here locally.

Regards,

Jimi

Hello Friends,
I don't live in So Cal but I frequently travel to LA (LAX area), I can be active and try help spread the word for IV whenever I am here.

Sorry for posting everything onto the forum. I had to do this after several attempts to post the zipped file did not work out.

Anyways I just wanted to post this list so that we have an idea about who are the newly elected Reps in CA. This will help us if we decide to meet some of them in future.

Hi All,

I am an IV member living in Southern California. I wanted to give a loud 'hello' out to all members in this region. It will be great to know some of the members so that we can interact. Can you please post back a response with what counties you live in? This way we can get some idea about where members are residing.

Looking forward to your responses.

Cheers,

Jimi

I see that most of the people who initially responded to my first post about the southern california state chapters have some recent activity i.e. they have visited this website in the last 2 days after my last posting requesting you to e-mail me about your availability for a conference call today. Not one of you has responded to my request to e-mail me.

I just want to make you all aware that IV core members can do a limited amount of work. They are definitely not superhumans although we expect them to be as such. If we fail in our efforts to secure any retrogression relief we will have only ourselves to blame in such a situation. Besides this is a very ripe time to be active and talk to politicians here in Southern California region. I would like to reschedule the conference call for the coming week/weekend depending on your availability.

In the end our best intentions and best wishes are not going to get us the immigration relief we want. We also cannot blame IV core team if we do not start working and lending them a hand. The choice is clearly ours. I hope that all of us will be more forthcoming and open to spending some time on IV work in the future.

Regards

Amit

Thanks Jimi for the note and being proactive. It is sad that nobody responded to your call despite sevaral members in this thread that signed up. If we dont take active interest and do nothing, we can only blame ourselves iif nothing happens in DC soon enough. IV is not IV core but each and every member of IV and efforts are needed from each member in order to succeed. Jimi, pls send PMs to all members on the thread requesting them to get in touch with you so that you can organize state chapter activites.

I applaud your efforts to take the lead for the so cal chapter. I live in the San Fernando Valley in the Los Angeles county. I would be happy to assist you with any drive for our local chapter.

Unfortunately your first step did not muster enough support from our volunteers. I guess we just need another jump start and we will be rolling. Lets give it another shot.

Hi All,

Thank you to all those who attended the first meeting! I am attaching the excel file for you to complete. I have included instructions in the file itself but let me know if you have questions. Please fill all the columns against your name.
Our next meeting will be on Thursday at 7pm PST. The tasks for our next meeting are as follows:
1) Complete the excel sheet (instructions are included).

2) Brainstorm about possible locations where we can put up a booth to register new members – someone had proposed contacting student body at UCI, we can discuss this.

3) Take a look at the IV power point presentation and propose how we can tailor it to our needs. We need a presentation to show to our house reps when we visit them (This will be found on the resources page)

4) Go through the IV template for business cards along with instructions to modify the template and to print the business cards. (this will be found on resources page)

Please let me know if you have any other questions. The conference call information is the same as last time:

Hey guys,

My name is Debasish and I live in Santa Monica near UCLA. I think we all should get together and do something to mobilize our chapter here in So-Cal area. We all know that there are a lot of people who are on H1B and have applied for their GC. But they are waiting....

For myself, I have applied for my GC and still waiting for the I-140. Don't know what they are doing in the TSC???

So the idea should be to get them invloved...Somebody has rightly put it that we do not have a collective voice and that's why we are ignored...

Hope you guys understand...

I think we should start collecting database of people who have applied for their GC and waiting.

If you have any input on this, I will gladly hear it...

Send me an email at meetdebasish@gmail.com on this topic. I am ready to take the lead and move forward.

Hi Jimi,

I missed the call yesterday night. How did it go? It is a good idea to get together some time in the near future. I would like to poll where all of us are located in So Cal,so that we could have it at a central place.

I am in Pasadena. How about others?My email ID is ashish@immigrationvoice.org

I can organize weekly Conf. call, but I would need some initial input from IV Core Team about its activities. I also need to understand what were SoCal chapter targets and if any progress has been made. Maybe 485Mb4001 or Amit can guide on this?

rkotamurthy,
pls take the lead yourself for thiis chapter. Jimmi_hendrix will be no longer leading this chapter. We need someone to lead this effort. If anyone else wants to come forward pls. do so and take charge. Communicate with the northern CA foks and organize a combined call or seperate call. We need someone to take a leadership role in this chapter at this time. Contact each and every member in this thread and bring them together to work on IV agenda items as outliined on the link on IV homepage for chapters.

Administrators,
Can you start a thread to decide about the meeting places for the state / city chapters so that members can gather and discuss.

This is more effective in addition to the postings on the forum.

You can selectively decide some meeting places for each state /city chapter

Post it for voting

Finalize the meeting schedules (like weekly meeting/monthly meeting)
Make it a regular event so that postings / thoughts can culminate into actions.

The following memo from DOS to CIS says it all:

July 2, 2007

TO : CIS Section 245 ADJUDICATIONS

FROM : Immigrant Visa Control

SUBJECT : Authorizations for Employment CASES

Effective Monday July 2, 2007 there will be no further authorizations in response to requests for Employment-based preference cases. All numbers available to these categories under the FY-2007 annual numerical limitation have been made available. Employment preference numbers will once again be available to these chargeability areas beginning October 1, 2007, under the FY-2008 annual numerical limitation.

The above action is a direct result of the sudden backlog reduction efforts of CIS offices during June and the first few days of July. During this short time period over 60,000 requests have been received and authorized. This is in comparison to the 66,425 CIS requests which were authorized during the first eight months of the fiscal year.

Please be sure that this information is passed to all personnel involved in the process of obtaining visa authorizations from the Visa Office for Section 245 cases

I stay close to downtown and I can co-ordinate all the activities. I can do the conference call or some one among us can co-ordinate to do that.

Any help from San Jose chapter members would be great.

One way to increase participation is to involve the Indian student associations of the various universities of the area. They are usually pretty well organized and members are usually willing to support such causes. Also support from ISA's from top notch schools goes a long way to show the legal immigrant population as a highly educated bunch.


**Los Angeles County resident **

imv116
07-15-2007, 11:04 PM
The problem I see with Los Angeles is the high population of illegals. Any thing here looks like pro-illegal.

Doing the rally in other cities in Los Angeles County or Orange County is the media visibility that we can get.

Any suggestions from SoCAL members?

-imv116

imv116
07-15-2007, 11:08 PM
We can request participation from other ethnic organizations, but that would be minimal unless they are victims of July VB bulletin.

If the cause was overall legal immigration, certainly we can request/demand such participation.
