Many had meeting with their Senators or Congressmen

And we joined AFTER the rally reached capitol. My only peeve was that many people were leaving even before the congressman began talking. People came there for the rally and then the leave as the meeting is going on --made no sense to me.

Anyway, the only reason we were late in joining was because we could not live with the fact that there were people flying in for the rally and we who were in Metro DC were not going. Thank you all for inspiring us to be there. It felt great do something for ourself.

Hi FinallyCurrent,

A lot of people have meeting with their lawmakers in the afternoon. Myself included. Otherwise, we would have loved to stay back till the end of the rally.

IV admin - Please thank and Send flowers to DC Police...
If we have not do this, We should send a big Thank you note and flowers to the Top DC Police for helping us.....

I am not asking each IV member do this, but just the rally organisers.

We should do this for help in future rallies.

They were very cool....

Thanks DC Police!

Media Supportive of Immigrants
Both NewYork Times & Washington Post the most influential papers in the country have been supportive in their articles about legal immigration. These papers carry a lot of weight in decision making process and our rally has really put things in right perspective, great job guys

The only option is victory now! We are well on our way, together!!!!

I was trying to meet you. Really wanted to put a face to the name. I think i missed a great chance to meet such an inspiring individual.

And one thing folks, the number was between 2000-3000. 1000 is ridiculous and please dont spread such rumors.
Thanks a lot.

CompeteAmerica is for us... though they tend to focus on increase in h1b since they are largely finded by tech companies... I think you may be thinking of numbersUSA.
