Comment: Sweet Sixteen
The first issue of Immigration Daily was sent out on May 2, 2000 to about 800 subscribers. Over the last sixteen years, we have grown as the newspaper of record for immigration law to over 35,000 subscribers, including approximately 9,000 immigration lawyers. We reach a diverse audience, including paralegals, HR folks, 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. We pioneered the distribution of free information about immigration law and policy, leveraging the open platform of the internet to disseminate information on immigration matters. We are pleased to see that the free distribution of immigration information on the internet is now taken for granted by all.
We want to thank three particular groups of people who have been integral to our success. Firstly, we could not have made it here without hundreds of contributing authors - their participation alone shows that Immigration Daily serves a legitimate need of the immigration bar. Secondly, immigration attorneys throughout the country have consistently voted with hard-earned dollars to support our free publication by buying our books, seminars, workshops, help-wanted ads, marketing services, EB-5 services and other products and services - without their sustained support Immigration Daily would not be possible. Finally, any publication ultimately derives its legitimacy as a viable and thriving medium from its readers. By continuing to vote with your mouse clicks every day, each and every one of you makes our daily efforts at our offices in New York City to bring you this periodical worthwhile. Thank you all!
