Comment: 15 Years

With this issue, Immigration Daily commences our 15th year
of continuous daily publication. We are proud to say we have
missed only 1 issue in all these years (and no, that was not on
9/11, when we published an issue from the homes of our team
members, the issue we missed was in 2002 when our server was
down). We are an online-only newspaper - but a newspaper
nevertheless - in other words, we are not a website. What that
means is that, like all newspapers, we hold our archives as
sacrosanct, as a true and faithful record of events that
transpire in immigration law. As opposed to Immigration
Daily
, our two competitors in online immigration news conduct
themselves as websites, not as a true and faithful record of
events - both of them blithely and routinely delete content from
the past - thus obliterating the ability of readers in the future
to check into events from the past. Our readers can rest assured
that whatever else we may or may not be, Immigration Daily
has never been, nor will it ever be, a website - we are a
newspaper published online - we do not go back and delete our
past. That said, we have comported with newspaper industry
standards for online publication, and we do alter factual errors
- but even these are done with clear notice to readers as to the
date and scope of the change on the specific page in
question.


We have a circulation base of over 35,000 subscribers,
including approximately 9,000 immigration lawyers. We reach a
diverse audience, including paralegals, HR professionals,
in-house counsel, journalists and people in academia,
think-tanks, etc. and also thousands of government employees at
the federal and state levels, in all three branches - executive,
judicial and legislative. Our single largest audience group is
immigrants, over 15,000 of them.


Immigration Daily would not be possible without the
sustained support of immigration attorneys throughout the country
who consistently vote with hard-earned dollars to support our
free publication by buying our books, seminars, workshops,
help-wanted ads, and other products and services. In 2014, we
have discounted prices of our seminars, books and advertisements significantly, thus making our products more affordable, and we are pleased with the
additional support that the immigration law community has
extended us in consequence.


Above all, we thank each and every one of our readers, by
voting with your mouse clicks each and every day - you make all
our hard work in producing Immigration Daily worthwhile.
We look forward to many, many more years together as the story of
immigration law in the United States continues to unfold. Share
