VOICE OF AMERICA: INTERVIEW WITH USCIS REVEALS IMPACT OF FLOWER CAMPAIGN

Rate this Entry

An alert reader pointed me to the Hindi version of a Voice of America television report on the recent Flower Campaign staged by Immigration Voice. Bill Wright, a USCIS spokesperson indicates that the flowers indicated the "intense public reaction" to the USCIS policy reversal on the July Visa Bulletin.






The power of the Internet certainly can be seen as Immigration Voice and its champions around the web were able to get the word out quickly.



Contrast this to an article in today's Washington Post showing how anti-immigrant forces are using the same tactics.



The lesson - the Internet MUST be an important part of the pro-immigration community's grassroots efforts. The Flower Campaign shows that pro-immigration forces can be just as successful as the anti-immigrants. Hopefully, the established pro-immigration community in Washington will quickly adapt and work with groups like Immigration Voice and the blogosphere as campaigns for progressive immigration legislation are waged.

    Thank you very much for your words of praise for Immigrationvoice. You are one of the few lawyers who recognoze the efforts and value the actual people suffering. Most other lawyers are only interested in squeezing money out of such people and turn a blind eye to their problem and just sing and dance to AILA tunes. Such lawyers will be identified and bashed on Immigrationvoice so that they lose business and pro-client lawyers like you can gain business. Please keep up the good work.
    Internet is a powerful medium and each word you write gets notices by our community.

    Appreciate the kind words, czxcs, but AILA is on your side, not an adversary. And the vast majority of immigration lawyers also have the interest of their clients at heart. There are plenty of REAL enemies out there in the anti-immigrant groups and that's where energy should be focused.
