Default Rally mentioned on NPR

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.

Good find. This reporter was successful in differentiating between high skilled legal immigrants and the low skilled illegals!! Our rally is bearing fruits as far as educating people about our problems is concerned

Default NPR feature ...

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.)

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.
