This is in reply to a letter in the July 29th issue of Immigration Daily. It is a sad day, but one cannot classify an entire group
pejoratively, based on a few "bad" apples. No, a few bad apples do not spoil
the whole barrel of immigration attorneys. Immigration attorneys are among
the most dedicated as a topical practice area to "legal social work" and "pro
bono" work for indigent clients, and many immigrants would ask and expect
services at a very low cost, or no cost, and I wonder if the author of the
ascerbic letter condemning "all" immigration attorneys, donates hundreds of
hours and thousands of dollars in costs to indigent immigrants, or others in
charity work? Each time I help another immigrant (or their American friend
of family), and it is pro bono, they appreciate it. I have been told in
several languages, that I have been an angel to someone. Has the writer of that letter been told that? Many of
the people I have helped could have paid me. I wonder if the author of
that scathing letter, would assist someone with your best efforts in your
profession, even if the receiver is receiving your assistance at no charge,
even if he/she could pay. Sometimes, yes, even immigration attorneys, are
people too, and we just help people to the best of our ability, because that
is part of living a meaningful life that makes a difference.
Walk a mile in our shoes before you condemn "all" immigration attorneys!
