The rally and some of IV's requests was mentioned on NPR this morning by their econmic correspondent. The piece did a good job of differentiating between legal high skilled and illegal immigrants and also in highlighting some of our concerns and requests for legal remedy.

I heard this NPR news while I was driving to office. The reporter really differentiates Skilled legal immigrants and Unskilled illegal immigrants. A good one

Thanks

To be honest, I am not happy with the NPR feature. Here is why: in the minds of most people, skilled immigrants just come here in masses, and within a blink of an eye, they get their green cards. They don't know how long and bothersome the way to an employment-based green card is. The feature focuses on letting more skilled immigrants come to the US, and having more green cards available without a mention of the problems with the current process. That means: they missed that we all are already here, and have been waiting for years to finally have our green card approved. I think it'll be misunderstood by all who don't know anything about the process. So in a way: this is an opportunity missed for disseminating more information about our situation. (Also, I bet that the picture posted was not taken at our rally.)

I'd like to think it was our media campaign letters that did it :)

Yes. We got a lot of interest from reporters due to the letters and press releases members sent. The credit for all media coverage goes to each and every member who participated in the media action item.

There is a lot of media coverage for the rally. Could everyone post links on the thread. We will then prepare a list and add it to 'IV in the news' page.
