Dear Editor:
We refer to the letter of Sudhir Shah in the November 20, 2003 issue of Immigration Daily commenting on Gary Endelman's article "Declare Victory and Go Home: The Solution to Illegal Immigration in America." Sudhir Shah's account of his so-called experience with clients in India is flawed. Historically, one of the underpinnings of immigration to the US has been the principle of family reunification. It is not the material aspect but love for family members that prompts the petitioner to undergo the travails of filing the visa petition and the cumbersome Affidavit of Support (baring all financial details). Sudhir Shah's charge that brothers and sisters come to the US to be employed by their petitioner siblings in menial positions in their homes is ludicrous. The reality is that Indian families are close knit and have love and affection for all family members. Most parents come to the US to be united with their children as they love them and want to spend the rest of their days in this great country, the US. That these ridiculous comments should come from an attorney who is an AILA member is very painful. Mr. Shah is out of touch with reality.
