    http://immigrate2us.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=8118

    I've posted a couple of times before about Mother's Day and possible lobbying efforts. Several people have posted about the family unity amendment, and so I've followed up with several very qualified people, including Laurel, to get more infomation.

    There is a general agreement that section 765 of S 2611 is poorly written and does not really do a good job of meeting the attempt to provide relief from the 3 and 10 year bars. In addition, it provides no relief for post-enactment petitions and no relief from other grounds of inadmissibility.

    The lobbyist we are talking to is actually a former congressman, and he has a long string of legislative successes in immigration and he has offered us a rock bottom price on lobbying, mostly because he is sympathetic to our plight and because he is doing other work on this bill. I could go on, but I don't like to go into too much detail in a public forum. I could certainly give you more information on a phone call if you are interested (see http://www.americanfamiliesunited.com for contact info).

    We do have some language (thank you Laurel!) to address many of the deficiencies in the drafting of the legislation, and we could go forward with that as individuals. I will personally be in a delegation to one of Senator Specter's local offices on Monday, and I can present what we have there.

    This is a first step.

    The next step that we could take is to have somebody on the inside to work on our behalf who might even be able to strengthen the language further to meet the needs of more families than are covered right now, to give us an on-going voice, and to give us advice on how to best use our resources. This is what a lobbyist can give us.

    However, we would still need to raise about over $13,000. This is a lot of money, but if everyone contributed, it would not be so unrealistic. However, we would have to raise it VERY quickly. We would need help, not just in contributions, but also in people going out and soliciting even more contributions from others.

    We are just taking pledges at this point, because we don't want to take money for the cause unless we actually have a critical mass of people to make it happen. This is a question of getting enough people so that it is not too much of a burden on any one person:

    Regarding Mother's Day, we did not get enough people for a rally in DC, but we did get several interested people, so we will try to do as many rallies/forums/press conferences as we can on Mother's Day across the country in a general attempt to raise awareness of the issue.

      I wouldn't give a nickel to anyone at twitteringcows.net-- all these whining slobs do is cry about how unfair it is that their law breaking, border jumping, illegal working spouse can't get a green card because they married the only person who didn't get invited to the senior prom.
