Default Looks like a far cry

With the kind of response I saw at the House judicary commitee inspite f making all those calls . I now realize where we are on their priority list , below horses .

Sorry for the sarcasm , I am pretty bitter about the whole thing now after 2 repeated delays .

Even I was under the same impression, but some members like sanju et al say there are still chances and GC issues are on top on the priority list. So lets hope for the best

Hi
this is just my thinking but somehow I beleive that no matter how much we try explain our side of the story the issue of immigration whether legal or illegal seems to be an explosive one....so if anything has to happen then it just might happen if there is not much publicity about it. A lot of politicians might support us if it will not create a huge buzz...
lets see and hope
regards
Saket

But they are not yet finish with the horse bill. I think Republican's Smith and King will again filibuster by trying to put in a lot of amendments to the horse's bill until the day is over. The chairperson is not doing good countering the filibustering of the Republican side.

Default real problem..

real problem is we are trying to wake up someone who is pretending to sleep and we can never achieve that. I am starting to feel pessimistic too about this whole bill thing, when they debated for the freakin horse shit for so long where as genuine issues like ours getting delayed..excuse my language, i am just so frustrated and starting to feel there is no light at the end for legal immigrants.

And even if it pass the mark-up tomorrow, there's a long winding road ahead before it becomes a law.

Only miracle can make this happen.

Default lame duck session

there remains a sliver of hope- its called the lame duck session when a lot of such measures are passed. post election, everyone feels "safer".
a marked up bill, ready for the house, could sneak through in the post election season. we have to keep trying!

If it get passed both Houses of Congress, Bush will sign it in his lameduck days. Many Presidents did sign bills even a day before leaving the office.

Anyways we never expected this to be an easy one.

Let us keep trying.
Maybe we should do behind the scenes action through state chapters instead of this public forum.
