Dear Editor:
Legal aliens who have been in this country anywhere from 5-13 years are struggling to get the greencard.s because of the extraordinary delays imposed by the USCIS. If the legal loses his/her job meanwhile then they have to return back to their country the next day. These folks have been the cause for the US to be a leader in the world in several fields. However illegals seem to have the trump card with the looming elections. The new proposal is very similar to having a H-1 visa (like the legals) which can be extended up to 6 years and then the person is eligible for a Greencard. So the message to the illegal folks is that come to the US illegally, find a job and you will be guaranteed a GC. What is worst is that the already overstretched USCIS will be taxed more in processing these illegals while the wait for the legals continues to increase. The legal folks have tried their best to contact congresspeople/senators throughout the country to try to ease the backlogs. Finally out of frustration they (a community of more than 70,000) folks have filed a law suit against the USCIS for the I-485 processing delays. We hope that this opens the eye of the USCIS and the Bush administrations promise to reduce the immigration backlogs to less than 6 months.
