Good advice. U can protest in other ways.

Typically I believe that any immigrant shouldn't attend protests, political rallies, political conventions and anything political. And also don't donate to a candidate/party. Did I get everything or did I miss anything?

I am not sure about donating but reaching out to local elected representatives should be fine. I talk to my mayor, Education board officials very often for issues that are impacting me.

M2 not passive here at all but you can decide whatever you want. After all opinions matter more than facts right

It’s not being passive, just using appropriate methods. Call your lawmakers, make your point heard - no one is stopping you there. Just going on street is not advisable. If you loose your visa, then you won’t be able to make slightest positive impact which you can, if you stay on visa.

What about posts on social media? Shares, Likes any activity that can be monitored publicly or even “privately”

I would be careful with that too. I don't think it's monitored that closely but yes, your phone can be confiscated upon re-entry into the US and after that it's open game. They can do whatever. It's best to not keep any sensitive pics. Some ppl say that it's best to log out of social media when you enter but honestly, if they ask you to log back in, you can't say no.

This is very true. Visa holders like us are not in the position to protest publicly or support protest. On road or on social media.

Agreed with OP. We need to protect ourselves first since we’re the minority here.

So can someone clarify? I thought this whole thing was for the new H1s this year.

Why would as an h1 person you even going for protest. If you have that much enthusiasm, come join us in rallies for S386, removing country cap, so we are all out off real slavery. No one in America is going to fight to free us except us.
