Dear Editor:
The Child Status Protection Act recently signed by President Bush seems to be most undemocratic and prejudicial law, because it didn't follow the democratic values. In a democratic country, a law should treat and embrace all people on the same footing, and whatever benefits and relief are offered should be given to all. But, this Act failed to benefit the children of lawful permanent residents, who are converted to F2B from F2A (Family-based) after their turning 21, while benefiting the children of the refugees and asylees. Under this new law, these children of the refugees and asylees are considered as minor children even though they attain 21 years of age after their application was filed. The new law has considered them as minor children on the basis of their age on the date on which the petition is filed. With this, justice is not done to the children of the LPRs, who are converted to F2B preference category due to their turning 21. These children of F2B preference category, who were under 21 when their parent filed petition, should also be considered as minor children until they are issued green card.
