Dear Editor:

After reading Margaret Wong's article, "Navigating The Immigration and Naturalization Process" about the need for personal endurance to qualify for US residency or citizenry, the question that begs an answer is "why the long wait?" The waiting conditions for permanent residency are a farce as are the conditions placed on people seeking such. Alien marriages to citizens are still largely frowned upon with the burden of honesty lumped on the alien and not on the citizen. The point is that Congress hardly debates the future and direction of US immigration on the basis of implementing flow controls or population projects. This type of decision making has been seemingly handed to INS, who under the guise of policy making, has confounded the nation's immigration blue-print that existed some decades ago. The faltering US economy is tied to immigration numbers, and Congress needs to urgently implement new immigration bills that will restore productivity and the population. The present convolution of visas and permanent residencies is the starting point of new bills.
