Default 100... reasons not to attend DC rally

My dear legal immigrants who aren't attending the DC rally,

Please feel free to put your reason for not attending the DC rally in this thread so that other whiners who still want the GC but without any pain can use it for excuse.


Even though it seems very funny or stupid, but that is a question you should be asking yourself first.

So far we gave a LOT for our GC, and there is more to come (or go). Coming to DC is a small investment that for sure will expedite it.

Is there any way you can postpone the business trip? because this is gonna be an historic event, and its now or never situation. If we dont stand up now, we can never do that again.

If there is a will, there is a way agreed. If it was upto me to change business travel, I would have.

Thanks,

I was on the verge of deciding dates for my bussiness travel around the early days after july 17 retraction of visa bulleting. Since the rally was to be on september 13th, I weighed on my superiors to have the site visit postponed to the following week. And then guess what, the rally was postponed following week.

There was no way for me to then go back to the week of 13th or any other date. So I am stuck out of town on september 18th. Still, I have been contributing in my own small way for the rally in helping distribute fliers in the DC/MD area and contributed $1oo for the cause, making total contribution so far at $200.

I wish you all great success for all our purposes and hope fo releif soon.

No your eyes are closed.

Good for you. Don't come back to us later telling us you were wrong in saying so.
3. I am busy.
Me too. Whats new in this?
4. We are small number of people and cannot do anything.

How many do you think will work? Then get us that number by working with us.

Another reason I have heard:
Q: I don't really care for the greencard. I am ready to go back to my home country.

My Answer to such people: Please do not waste your time and please cancel your greencard application ASAP and go back, if this is what you want. This will be a big help to poor souls like us who will have one less person ahead of them in line.

Default Top reasons I have heard/read

1) My PD is 2003, I will be getting my GC soon

2) My employer allows me to have vertical promotions and salary hikes

3) I am happy in my job

4) I can switch jobs on EAD

5) Ignorance is bliss

6) GC is a privilege. We should be grateful we are here. In a few years the US gates are going to be completely closed.

7) I make a lot of $$ anyway, I'll pack my bags and leave if I have to, why bother with the US government.

8) There are other things like spiritual journey that are more important than Green Card. When you are on this path, then things like green card don't matter. Please don't disrupt my peace.

9) My kids are top priority right now, sorry can't make it.

10) Nothing is going to happen

11) I have a good immigration attorney, I can get you in touch with him.

How soon

Did you check with your lawyer if this is ok for your GC application?

3) I am happy in my job
Good for you. Nothing is permanent.
4) I can switch jobs on EAD
Yes But.....

5) Ignorance is bliss
Thats so sweet! Why did you go to college and got your degree. You could have stayed ignorant all your life.
Good luck.

6) GC is a privilege. We should be grateful we are here. In a few years the US gates are going to be completely closed.
Thats great. Infact we should be grateful for everything we recieve in life... food, water, clean air....
Are you going to close the gates? What is the basis of your statement?

7) I make a lot of $$ anyway, I'll pack my bags and leave if I have to, why bother with the US government.
I will help you pack your bags when you want to any day.

8) There are other things like spiritual journey that are more important than Green Card. When you are on this path, then things like green card don't matter. Please don't disrupt my peace.
Then why are you after $$ as you said in your earlier question?

9) My kids are top priority right now, sorry can't make it.
everyone has kids as top priority. Who does not have?

10) Nothing is going to happen

Are you God?
