Thank you Mark how you rebuffed that stereotypical response on "being grateful to being here in this wonderful economy and enjoying such nice living conditions".

I really enjoyed the interview.

audio streaming archives are available 1 to 2 hours after the show. Check here http://wamu.org/programs/kn/08/03/24.php#20155.

Our segment was about 40 minutes in. My web streamer won't allow fast forward, don't know if limitation is the client or the server. Robert and Ron go through the standard Pro / Anti H1B arguments for the first 40 minutes. I didn't want to be part of that.

I hate listening to my own voice, thanks for the complements, it will make listening to my own voice less cringing.

Our segment is available without fast forward
If the Windows Media does not load try with Real Player that normally works better for me.

I heard whole segment and it was great advocacy Mark.
I think the guy who called afterwards nailed it right..
I don't know why folks don't emphasis injustice built-in per country quota..
If discrimination is prohibited anywhere else based on persons's national origin why is it allowed to continue in Green Card queue??
We should hammer this point everywhere..
I have spoken abt it and no one can really say any good counter-point..
IF the pain was shared across all the nations, you bet there would be more support across the board..
Also per-country quotas are really relic of pre-1965 European only immigration policy..
Before anything else I would like simple just queue formed.. This is new "Asian Exclusion Law" and that should be #1 target!

Great job Mark ,Appreciate your efforts

I think the last caller is a stupid and dont know the difference between the Highly skilled and Undocumented workers , he is refereing to workers in restaurent to the H1B workers .

Thank you Mark!
You did an excellent job. Your explanations were very clear and probably made sense for someone who is not familiar with EB immigration issues.
Thanks!

Well done Mark, I think you presented our case very well.
There are a lot of stereotypes and misunderstandings of the facts around this issue.
It makes me realise just what a disservice those like Lou Dobbs and his ilk do to both the debate over this issue as well at to the future of this country that those like us can only benefit.
Ron Hira though he is wrong on his position can atleast acknowledge the need for more green cards. The extreme right is just fundamentally messed up in their head, and would gladly go back to becoming Hamish in the city!

just listen to the show - wonderful performance - you were crisp and to the point ... your points on this EB mess and the closing comments were great ... the 2nd caller shows the typical American common man mentality towards EB community ...

Thanks ... wil listen to it from home ...

First of all, Mark: Great job ! I think this was a great spokesperson job for our issue. I think the biggest problem facing our issue is lack of awareness. I disagree with sammyb's comment. I don't think the 2nd caller shows the typical american mentailty towards *our* issue. Any talk about immigration, be it legal or illegal, gets overtaken with the bigger illegal immigration debate. And that is natural given the scale of illegal immigration problem when compared to the legal one. I think Mark gave a great response to the 2nd caller by giving perspective. Until there is more awareness about the *legal* immigration issues and a separation from the larger illegal immigration debate, this will be a tough battle.

On the face of it, this shouldn't be hard. People who follow the rules and the majority of them being tremendous assets to the American economy. Just the kind of immigrants a country would want : educated (in quite a few cases highly), skillful , law abiding and language proficient. Yet, here we are.
