Dear Editor:
The letter by Nursing16 published in Immigrant's Weekly (07/11/05) indicates that their present status is illegal, because if they are legal permanent residents it is certain that it will not take 20 years to become an American citizen. Illegals are those who violate the law of the US. Therefore, the question of granting citizenship to the violators of the law of the US does not arise.
