< Back to current issue of Immigration Daily < Back to current issue of Immigrant's Weekly

Dear Editor:
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!
