Default Why don't we ourselves write editorials/articles on Immigration

We have a wealth of information from A to Z on US Immigration, why dont we ourselves write articles and editorials and get them published in the News Papers, Journals, etc?

Why are we waiting for some one to come to us and take information to write articles on us. Does Newspapers check the background of authors to verify if they are citizens/non-citizens/green card holders/ H1B's. What all matters to them is quality and authenticity of the articles.

Do you folks think this a good option to pursue?

yes...good idea! If those ignorant buffoons from NumbersUSA can spread false propaganda...why not spread the light.

The truth will set everyone free.

Thumbs up Great idea

Guys,

I have been going to various blogs and where anti legal immigration ideas are posted, I try to provide a fact based rebuttal...

As a start I would request all of you to do the same...

For the gifted writers here writing articles for newspapers is a great idea...

We all should do aour part and spread the awareness...

Default Let's see if we can streamline some process for this

I am kind of thinking of getting a template kind of system where in members can involve and put in their thoughts and once an article ( of some interest) reaches to a final stage and gets approved by the majority it would be forwarded to the news papers / Journals.

I am not sure how much time it takes, but let me try out crystallizing the thoughts towards this end.

Would be great, if few people can join me in this endeavor. PM folks/writers who wish to involve themselves in this process.

This is a process that has to evolve and please do not have expectations as to see results right away.

However, if some one is ready to take the lead.... Please take over...

First thing we should do is to highlight our issues on our own website ( IV.org ). At this moment we are not even doing that. For example, today's "Processing date bulletin" which came out exactly 15 days late and that too with dates traveling back in time should be highlighted first on our own web site.

IV home page has not been updated for past 3 months or so.

Why not put these kind of painful headlines on our home page first big , bold highlighted ( eg "USCIS screws immigrants again with latest visa bulletin" ) and then dedicate few lines to it with proper links to last month's and current bulletin.

Now forward these links to news hungry journalist who will automatically investigate and write in their papers and journals.

Dedicate few inches of space for today's IV headlines on our home page first.
