I throw down a challenge!
 
You are keeping me busy, but I still have some spare time - keep the ideas rolling!

bestia 08-01-2007 06:55 AM

few from me :)
 
I have a dream
I have a green

High-skilled immigrants need high-skilled law makers

The law should not be lottery

Recaptured visas - restored dreams

Yes to legal immigration
No to legal slavery

H4 = Home 4lone

checklaw 08-01-2007 10:40 AM

Really original ones...some maybe long!
 
You invited us here with a promise of flight to fantasy...
Why the perpetual OVERBOOKED flights now?

************************************************** *****

Now we sleep few sweet dreams....in the midst of living recurrent immigration nightmares!
************************************************** *****

Is the Legal Immigration system here, a Desert?
....We keep seeing Mirages!
************************************************** *****

We legals pay enough tolls on broken immigration roads, waiting in mindless queues.
Time you really fixed the roads or arranged for the EZPASS!
************************************************** *****

We too believe, like the hardworking, law-abiding slow Tortoise, we would win the race in the end... The difference here, the finish line keeps disappearing!
************************************************** *****

We have always believed even bad things come to an end...
Despite so many years of patient waiting, why don't they?
************************************************** *****

Have enough wounds from undeserved STICKS....
Time you fed us our promised CARROTS!
************************************************** *****

I think it says it all! Good one obviously.

Perhaps we should change the last one to "Is this liberty?"

I think we should make a bunch of slogans that go along the lines of -

Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness - That we don't have them or we cant have them

gc4me 08-01-2007 12:04 PM

Best Slogans
 
Peoples who will be holding up posters with these slogans should stay in a row side by side:

We gave you Google
Now, give us GC


We gave you intel
Now, give us GC


And the list goes on………………..
Members please add list here. Text ‘Google’, ‘ intel’ etc should exactly match company’s logo

Congressman, how would you feel if you are in my shoes right now?

american_dreams 08-01-2007 07:56 PM

Looks like we will need more catchy slogan suggestions on re-capturing visa numbers and not counting dependents for visa numbers.

obviously 08-01-2007 08:02 PM

More slogans ...
 
"Made in the USA": Why push to make it history?

"Innovation in the USA": Why make it a footnote in history?

"Courage in the USA": Why make it a mere memory?

"Diversity in the USA": Why repeat the sins of exclusion?

When the destination is what matters ... why put us in the back of the bus?

Rosa Parks of the 21 century.

1800's: Ambition + Hard work = Great American Dream
2000's: Ambition + Hard work = Great Immigration Blackhole

Sorry my grandpa missed the boat. Does that make me less likable?

Sorry my grandma didnt come to Ellis Island. Does that make me less worthy?

I suffer from ED : Emotionally drained.

I suffer from PMS : Permanently Maligned & Sidelined.

I suffer from RLS : Retarded by the 'Legal' System

The media : Airtime for celebs in rehab. No airtime for a system thats

In God we Trust : In you we Entrust

E Plubirus Unum : Then why count us out????

Is there a Jefferson amongst you? Change requires courage.

Is there a JFK amongst you? Change requires vision.

Is there a Lincoln amongst you? Change requires faith.

Is there an Adams amongst you? Change requires belief.

High Skilled Workers + USA = Open Air Prisons?

Where's my ankle bracelet?

Too legal to be noticed.

Too legal to be cared for.

Too legal to be listened to.

Too legal to be proud of.

We are ONE VOICE. Not SOME NOISE.

Gasp! Your ER Doctor could be a legal immigrant!

Gasp! Your Investment Banker could be a legal immigrant!

Gasp! Your Realtor could be a legal immigrant!

Gasp! Your Caterer could be a legal immigrant!

Gasp! Your Lawyer could be a legal immigrant!

Land of Immigrants shy's away from beacon of skilled immigrants. It's time to open the doors.

If ever I'm sent to Death Row for my faith in "rule of law", my last wish is Great American Dream

superdude 08-02-2007 01:01 PM

Rules are made to follow
We do. Do You?

dilvahabilyeha 08-02-2007 02:46 PM

IMHO

All our slogans should have info on whom we are asking or shoutig at or point to, or else it should not sound that we are targetting the general public! So all the banners should have "USCIS, or congressmen, Homeland sec, FBI, etc.". Let us not be too rude and offend the general public!
So when we say 'you' the banner should have the targetted org info at the top!

If we are showing our agony or suffering, they can be put as general, but we have say why we are in pain! Without any reason, if we say we are in pain, then that might give different message!. So it's better to carry some banners (few at front, middle and back, well balanced in the whole rally) which give clean message as why we are doing the rally.
"We are highly skilled legal immigrants, our green cards have been ignored(or pushed down) by the govt for years, and we do this rally to bring awareness about the injustice happening to us"

What do you say guys?

Recapture Lost Dream

Greencard
 
We drink green tea
We eat green veggies
We buy green cars
But no greencard

Buy a car - $30,000
Get an MBA - $75,000
Buy a House - $800,000
Get a Greencard - Priceless

There are certain things money can buy. For everything else, there is GREENCARD !

franklin 08-03-2007 12:40 AM

Nice job - keep em coming!
 
We've got some great ones already, but I'm leaving it open for a few more days and will do "round 1" of collating over the weekend.

I'll add a few more:-

"Hear our LEGAL
IMMIGRATION VOICE"

"Learning Every Day
About the AMERICAN WAY"

I also really like a couple of these ideas that people posted here:-
"Can you spot the next Einstein here?"
and the
Presidents / and traits slogans

These kind of things caught the press' imagination in SJ

Can anyone suggest some good -
  1. Names of Famous Legal Immigrants
  2. Famous Quotes about Immigrants

seahawks 08-03-2007 03:04 AM

Here are some from my thought process

1. Legal immigration applicant, 7 years and still waiting HELP!
2. Let my dependent spouse work, I need a break.
3. Waiting in line is fine, Waiting forever is unfair.

sayantan76 08-03-2007 08:40 AM

your forefathers were immigrants too!

Windy 08-03-2007 10:32 AM

It's your turn now.

prince_waiting 08-03-2007 11:01 AM

Here are more fresh ones
 
Don't let the GC dream of the cream flow downstream.

A stroke of your pen will release us from years of Green Card pain.

Student at a US university --- 2.5 years.
Professional at a fortune 500 company --- 8 years.
Parolee after filing AOS ---- 20 years ???
Is it a crime to be a highly skilled immigrant ???
