Thank you IV, San Jose was the begining...
To all IV members and the core team:
Thanks a bunch for mobilizing members to get their voices heard - first at the historic San Jose rally of high-skilled legal immigrants, and now with this monumental effort in DC on September 18th.
Thanks to all your efforts (myself included), we were able to file for Adjustment of Status (AOS), EAD and AP in July, and had the extension till August 17th to file it for those of us who couldn't do it sooner.
Thanks also to the lawmaker(s), and others who voiced their opinions and drew attention to the plight of highly educated, skilled, tax-paying, brilliant, and entrepreneurial folks, waiting for their GCs for as long as a decade.
We finally received our EADs yesterday, and our APs have been approved (awaiting notices).
The road from here to finally becoming permanent residents and perhaps eventually citizens of this great country (for those of us who wish to) is a long, winding one, full of tricky situations, significant risks, and the inevitable delays by the agencies concerned.
We all need to collectively make our voices heard, tell the lawmakers, the media, and the world about our lives that we continue living in limbo, and will be forced to do so for a long long time if we don't act.
I WILL ENTHUSIASTICALLY JOIN THE DC RALLY NEXT WEEK.
SAN JOSE WAS THE BEGINNING, DC WILL BE A HUGE MILESTONE!
(San Jose rally pictures and videos, and Aman's messages from Milpitas, CA meeting can be found at http://morejazzbythebay.wordpress.com)
I urge all affected and still on the sidelines to participate in every way that they can to make this organization and its efforts successful.
cheers, and see ya'll in DC!
