Is there any way we can get the contact information for the 12 texans that voted 'no'? I'd like to follow up with them to find out why. Maybe we can help them to make it to the rally...

I do not know whether my name is there in your list of 12 persons or not. But I will not be able to attend the Rally at DC though I want it as recently I got the project and I will be busy whole september with heavy work load. I have been given a very tight schedule recently. You can have my contact number from PM. I already discussed this with DallasBlue and Niloufer during our Anand Bazar, Dallas meet.

Kudos for your efforts. We need more people like you.

Tell me what is houston publicity plan...i am from austin
and would like to do this in Austin. If cant do this in austin, i will
come to Houston.

I am thinking, sulekha.com, indian stores, barsanadham.

Also what is the deal with yahoo email group, may be i am mistaken
but why do we have so many venues?

I will check messages on yahoo group and call you if have a contact number or you can call me any time.

regards

Default What's up with the texans???

Every time I read this thread , I see one more person has voted not to come.

I am not trying to blow my horn here, but let me tell you what my situation is- I have 2 kids, one is 2 yrs and the other is 5 mos old. My husband travels constantly and is never home. He is now in Canada for a month. I work full time as a Sr. Product Manager - a v.demanding role. And I am still trying to make some time towards this cause - not for charity, but for helping myself.

I would like to know what it is that is stopping you from attending the rally? You ought to have a really compelling reason to not come, and I'd like to know what it is!

Come on Texans, at least give your reasons. IF you look at the California thread, there are so many members coming. Whats the matter with Texas.
We need more of us.
Sen. Cornyn from TX is supporting these issues. We need to be there and show our support and make our presence felt.

texanmom, The poll was not created so that voters may be visible, so i don't think that its possible to track down the info. I may be wrong.

But atleast we know that we have 12 texas members on IV who care enough to cast vote. With the TX response, I think this in itself is a big achievement for our state. Disheartening..

Default Disheartening..I agree

And I am also shocked at how informed everyone is. I spoke to a friend in Houston today to ask them to help me out with the publicity, and he says - 'Why are you worried? You will get your EAD soon, and you dont have any problems.'!!!! Just absolutely shocking!!!

We are definitely legal..but I wonder what rights we have to call ourselves skilled !! Shouldn't we be a more proactive, well-informed group?

Default Set yourself free..

This is exactly the response I get from my friends.
There is a vast majority of this population that thinks that the problem does not exist, and then another majority that thinks nothing can be done to remedy it.

Even after IV has given concrete results in July, I don't know what these people want to get convinced that something positive CAN happen when people unite together for a cause.

On top of that, there are arrangements being made for people who need financial assistance, so then whats the issue? Whats holding you back??
