Dear Editor:

The creation of a new "V" visa category under the Legal Immigration Family Equity Act of 2000 (LIFE) has allowed the spouse and children of the lawful permanent residents in the F-2A category to come to the US to join their family provided that they must have been waiting at least for 3 years for an immigrant visa number. But the children who were already approved under F-2A category and later transferred to the F-2B category because of their turning 21 years of age while waiting for an immigrant visa number have been prevented from taking the advantage of eligibility for the V visa under the LIFE Act. With this, it is certain that justice is not done to the children of the F-2B category who have been separating from their parents for more than 7 years, because they were totally ignored when the new "V" visa was created. To separate the children from their parents for such a long period doesn't seem to be fair and just for a democratic country like America where equality and freedom are expected by all on equal footing. Therefore it is very high time that US legislators should amend the LIFE Act immediately entitling the children of the F-2B category for the V visa.
