Dear Editor:

In the "Letters to the Editor" section of Immigration Daily we can see many distinguished persons have expressed their views about Section 245(i). I find most of them are saying that this section has rewarded the illegal aliens for their fraudulent activities rather than punishing them. Furthermore, they are saying that while the White House and the Capitol Hill are asserting that families should not have to be split up, and to reunite the children with their parents is their nuclear family policy, they do not appear to have paid attention to the children of legal permanent residents who have been waiting outside the United States for their immigrant visa numbers for years. The most glaring example of injustice is the children of legal permanent residents in the F2-B category, who have been separated from their parents for 9 years due to unavailability of their visa numbers, and are still waiting patiently outside the United States. It seems that the White House and the Capitol Hill have ignored them. I believe that the best solutions to resolve the current problems of the illegal aliens and to eliminate the suffering of the children of the legal permanent residents, are the following:

1) All the illegal aliens, both EWIs and overstays, should be sent back to their countries and made to process at consular posts for immigrant visas; and

2) the children in F2-B(Family-sponsored immigrant visa)category who have been waiting for immigrant visa numbers for more than 6 years should be made eligible for the V visa created recently to join their parents, or the immigrant visa numbers should be increased so that the above children will not have to wait extraordinarily.

If the above two solutions are implemented I think we can say that injustice is not done, and the immigration problems we are facing now, will be solved for ever.
