Dear Editor:
I have always been curious how many people regularly use Legislative Assistants (LAs) of our federal lawmakers(both US Senators and House of Representatives) rather than legal counsels to their process immigration cases. It is even more puzzling to me that the INS has specially designated phone numbers that are instantly accessible to these LAs. Mind you that is usually not the case for either self-petitioned individuals or petitioners with legal representatives. What are the effects of such disparity in terms of access, response and efficacy of the INS in how it performs its duties? Also, judging by the faster responses that the INS usually give to these LAs and easy access to talk to live INS officials anytime, are we not unwittingly turning the LAs to unlicensed immigration legal practitioners?
