Subject: A peaceful rally at Washington DC by Highly Skilled Workers

Immigration Voice (http://www.immigrationvoice.org) is a non profit
grassroots advocacy group working to alleviate the issues of Highly
Skilled Foreign Workers who are stuck in the Employment Based Green
Card Process stuck in Bureaucratic Logjams.

Immigration Voice is conducting a peaceful rally in Washington DC on
September 18th, 2007 (Tuesday).

You can/must participate in the rally if
(1) You are in various stages of the Green Card Process
(2) Belong to a retrogressed group
(3) Highly Skilled worker (Physicians, Engineers on H1B visa, J1
Waiver, L1 etc…) and planning to apply/already applied for a Green
Card
(4) If your families are divided by backlogs and retrogression.
Thousands of families are being potentially torn apart due to their
kids “aging out”. These children are victims of something they have no
control over and they are constantly forgotten.
(5) Current students studying in various universities (from other
countries) but will be applying for Green Card soon or later
(6) If you already have a Green Card or a Citizen, you can provide
support and encouragement

Please make it a point to attend the rally. Please invite your
friends, relatives, co-workers and colleagues to the Rally. Please
spread this message through mailing lists, media contacts, Orkut and
other social networking media. If you are students, please send this
email to various student organizations. If you work for companies,
please send this message to managers, co-workers, employers etc.

If you are not already a member at Immigration Voice, please become a
member today. It is easy and free!

Please follow this link for more details on the Rally
immigrationvoice.org/forum/showthread.php?t=11428

A lot of people may be wondering why should we even bother about this.

Some FAQs

(1) What's all this? Immigration Voice? Rally? Why should I care?
A. There is a political angle to issues that we are all facing. The
system was designed long time back and has not been flexible and with
the actual demand more than the capacity it is in a messed up state.
No one has made attempts to fix the mess and vote bank politics are
creating further mess.

(2) Why no one talks about these things?
a. The nature of this issue is very complex. Unless one falls into
this pit, the nature of this issue cannot be understood
b. A lot of people do not want to handle the truth and reality
c. Perception - without looking at the real picture, lot of people
assume things are fine

(3) Why should I take these issues seriously, my lawyer will take care
of these?
a. Immigration lawyers assist and handle the paperwork, this mess is
beyond their control or scope or even the scope of USCIS and related
government agencies
b. Immigration lawyers are your service providers and you are their
client, they will talk only business to you, there is no need for them
to explain to you the mess you are in

(4) After the July visa bulletin fiasco, I did submit my 485 petition,
and I will get an EAD/AP so why must I bother?
a. EAD/AP were designed to be interim benefits (only for few months
until someone can get a Green Card), their usage has limitations and
will lead to further issues
b. Severe retrogression will hit in coming fiscal years. India, China,
Mexico, Philippines, Eb3, and eb2, and ROW eb3 will all be affected,
please refer to the following link bibdaily.com/pdfs/Jan%20Pederson%208-2-07.pdf
c. Anti immigration lobby is targeting H1b tech workers, at the same
time a lot of lobbying organizations are working hard to make the
system unworkable for e.g.. Durbin Grassley amendments may appear
anytime
d. Until you get a Green Card in Hand, EAD is not the best viable
alternative for work and AP is definitely not the best travel
document.

(5) Why Immigration Voice? What is the agenda?
a. Immigration Voice is the only grassroots organization working hard
on these issues
b. Immigration Voice's earlier campaigns were a huge success and sent strong signals to government agencies and law makers

So why not start working on helping yourself and helping your fellow
immigrants?

Please spread the message, and take active interest in the event.

Best Regards,
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Default Core group direction?

Hey core!

Is there some direction on this you'd like us to take - is someone leading the effort?

Yeah, I have the same question. I figured out that someone must take initiative, so I just came up with a template that folks can use for publicity.

Digital2k is working hard on mobilizing this thread.

So until this picks up momentum I guess we must keep the ball rolling

we need help with 3 things this weekend from all members:
=========

1) http://immigrationvoice.org/index.ph...ends&Itemid=55

Use this invite friends template and send the message about the rally to all your friends. Ask them to forward the message to all their friends.
===============
2) Create a signature in your personal email that has a line about IV rally and immigrationvoice with a link. Thus IV name will reach each and every friend of yours.
==============
3. Post IV message on each of these forums listed here:
http://immigrationvoice.org/forum/sh...8&postcount=42

Chanduv has already posted a template you can copy paste.
===========
The success of the rally will depend on number of people who can join us. If we can have a rally of 10 thousand or more people imagine the kind of impact we can make. So let us try to spread the message as much as possible to people outside IV membership who are stuck in retrogression.

The other help we need this weekend is to design the publicity poster for the rally. If we have a few designs: color and black and white we can upload them on the site on Monday. Members can then print them out and post them in grocery stores, temples, restaurants, etc etc.

If you are interested, then contact gsc999 and get the text of the poster from him to design.
