It is because you gave your personal email etc to some Immigration related business website or some other website to poll /send emails/ faxes.
I saw some such campiagn posts and people were blindly going to those sites and giving their votes on poll. They think by tracking or polling or sending junk emails they will get greencards faster. Now these sites took your information that had value as a immigration related user and you are spammed.
You should always trust a non-profit organization with your personal information or a big company like yahoo or google that have strict privacy policy.

That shows how much illiterate some so called educated people are about web.
