In January 2018, Lopez’s privacy breach by the DHS crime-victim office was a lead story for both USA Today & The Arizona Republic; Gannett newspapers and other media around the country quickly picked up the story.
NBC News, Fox Television, Fox News, Medium, Israel's Haaretz and the Spanish-language El Sol Latino newspaper featured her story. Her opinion pieces have run in USA Today, The Daily Caller and The Star-Ledger.
Since 2017, she's been interviewed by almost 60 national and local radio hosts about her story and the national security implications of ignoring widespread immigration fraud. These included Iowa's political powerhouse Simon Conway (WHO Iowa), nationally syndicated Lars Larson (KXL-Portland, OR), Phil Valentine (Westwood One), radio host and blogger "News Ninja" Wayne DuPree, award-winning Heidi Harris (CBS & KMZQ-Las Vegas), African-American media mogul Armstrong Williams (Sirius XM) and countless others stunned by her story and the various immigration fraud cases she presented.
