Default So. What is the result after the Rally?

Ok, I've seen a lot of threads about go to the rally, actions items, I've reading a lot of guys saying dont ask for your receipt status, dont waste your time etc, etc.

Yes we did the rally we were great with all those signs, and appearing in the Indy TV but...

Question remains open:

1. When are they going to increase the GC quota?
2. When congress id going to do something?

I've the feeling that that's it we made our point but we are still with no GC, waiting receipts..............

Things don't happen so soon, and that too with law makers. Our purpose of rally was to bring awareness in media, public and Lawmakers. and in that part I think we did reasonably good. Now, things are into Law makers hands and it may take time to resolve immigration system, as its been screwed from decades.

Keep your hopes alive and just wait and watch. There's nothing we can do more.

Things don't happen overnight... From your questions it looks like you half expected lawmakers to come out in the rally and announce that we hereby increase visa numbers to ####. Things dont happen that way.

The rally put our issues in front of the lawmakers eyes so they can help in influencing and introducing legislation for us... and when they do, we need to be equally active as for the CIR with faxes and emails and calls to lawmakers...

What, are you 4 yrs. old man? If one works sincerely towards the cause, then he will realize the answer themselves, please try & think about that. Please help us work towards the goal. Nothing happens overnight, hope you are old & experienced enough to realize that or you must be an armchair quarterback. Please listen to "Time" by Pink Floyd & get your priorities straight.

Anna 35: You are not serious are you?? You wanted to hand out IV Rally fliers to Congressmen and them to hand you out your greencard.??

Its hardly 24 hours since the rally is over..

I would strongly suggest you read the history of civil rights legislation.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Civil_Rights_Act_of_1964

Compared to civil rights movement ours is much smaller in size and strength. Change happens very slow in a democracy.

Let me explain you in very human form: Baby is the fruit. It takes 9 months to get that fruit. To get that fruit humans put effort ( You know what I mean...). When they put effort, immediately they do not look for baby.. They wait for 9 months.. Correct.. Just apply this analogy to the struggle what we have initiated.

Default Cant do nothing?

You know that's my point. do you really think we can't do nothing more?.....

we are highly sklilled smart and great immigrants creating the new America of the 21st century we can't just say, thats it lets wait.....

This country is about money, and we have the tremendous advantage that elections are coming, lets see the big picture.. why dont we jump to the next level from street protesters to work with one of the candidates or 2 or 3 , if they see money they will push our cause. Lets work on that now...

So those guys who attended the hearings or met with senators. what was the result? what did they accomplished? did they get the opportunity to participate with the senator or law maker in an action plan? or we just wasted that opportunity asking for autographs? please those guys post your comments.

I'm no negative just wondering how to measure the success of the rally?

Default I see your point..But.

Hi Anna,

I see your point. You want to keep the momentum and keep
striking the iron when its hot.

But lets give the IV core and volunteers a few nights of good
sleep. They have all been working really hard and deserve this.

I am sure they have a strategic roadmap for us..
