Dear Editor:
I want to call the attention of the Lawmakers in the USA. In family based Visa applications, 1st preferences and 3rd preferences in particular, the allocated visas are 23,400 in a year. Many are waiting for almost 10 years, because availability of visas in a year is limited. I want to request in fairness to the applicants who are lawfully following their immigration applications, can you amend the number of visas allocated to these preferences? Since many of them are children of U.S. citizens and WW11 veterans. I am not against the visa lottery but why not prioritize your own citizens' relatives instead? Immigrants help the U.S. in building its economy. Since the objective of President Bush's administration is to unify the family of U.S. Citizens and Immigrants why not amend the K regulations and add those over age children (adult over 21, single or married) with approved petition be given consideration for a temporary visa so that they can apply even outside the U.S. through Consular Offices abroad. Those with approved petitions can come and work in the U.S. while they are waiting for the permanent visa to issue for them within the U.S. I pray this change will coming soon. May God give them the Wisdom to tackle this task. In behalf of Sons and Daughters of U.S. Citizens and WW11 Veterans.
