True Immigrant Stories
Immigrants' List writes "With so much emphasis being placed on the number of illegal immigrants in the United States or how much money immigrants supposedly cost the economy, there has been a lack of a human face on this issue... More must be done to ensure that Congress sees immigration not as a statistic, but as something that affects tens of millions of people every day."

Dear Weekly Editor:
I get reminders for weekly chat with lawyers. When I get on the page, it tells me chat window will appear. Which never appears. Can you help?

Dear Weekly Editor:
Iíve recently been keeping up with this whole debate about passing the reform bill for undocumented illegal aliens to remain in the United States. I myself am a born citizen who is married to an illegal alien, and I must say that people like him who are hard working, and wants the better things in life should definitely be considered or granted the pathway for citizenship. My husband and I both work, but he brings home more money than I do, and I am the one who graduated from H.S. and have some college under my belt. Trust me I am not complaining, I thinks itís good that the man is the bread winner, but like I said itís people like him and Iím sure many others who can and will make a difference in this nation. I do however, understand what our Senators and our President is trying to do, and they need to be careful on how to approach the situation because of all of the other undocumented aliens that are just taking up space and our tax money in the jail systems. I feel that those who end up behind bars first time around for drugs, criminal acts, possession of weapons, or even involved in gangs & shooting shouldnít even be considered a second chance, deport them. I hate to sound unfair, but itís people like that who really put a damper on the ones trying to make a good living, and as a tax payer that really irritates me. I know a lot of illegal aliens that live here, and when you sit with them, and listen to their stories about the way people live in Mexico or other countries itís really sad. I would probably do what I can to come over too, especially when itís that close to a better life. I really hope that this reform bill passes, not just for my husband sake, but for many others who deserve it. Thank you for taking the time to read this, and hopefully I can make some sort of a change in the hearts of many, God loves you.

Dear Weekly Editor:
I think there should be a reform because most of the people here, at least ones I know, are doing us a favor and getting jobs done that we are too involved in our own lives to do. These peolpe are not afraid to work Saturday and Sunday while we are resting and spend time with our families. It is time for American's to wake up and see that their are overall more bad Americans than foreigner. They just always seem to be in the spotlight.


Dear Weekly Editor:
Letter of Jessica Sanches (IW 5/14/07) says "Those who are not related to an immigrant are the ones who favor raid and racism." That statement is wrong-headed and self-serving. I too am married to an alien. My wife comes from a country even poorer than Mexico, where she was a middle-aged mother trying to raise her son on the equivalent of $75 per month. Yet she never considered breaking any country's laws but made the best of her situation. I met her in her countrydecided to marry and paid all the fees, filed the forms, had backgrounds checked (including mine) and finally she and her son were able to come to America legally. As I result, have less less sympathy than most, for those who willfrully break several laws (illegal entry, using counterfeit documents, working without name a few) Then, because there are many such lawbreakers they make demands and false claims of racism. Anyone who makes such demands shows themselves to be disrepectful of our nation and unworthy of our compassion. The letter complains that her problems are the result of our laws and not her husband's lawbreaking.
