A legal immigrant speaks up

Dear Editor:

When I was 20 years old, my dream was to come to the U.S. for a better life. What I had to do was go to the U.S. Embassy and apply. After my background was completely checked out, I received my paperwork to immigrate. I remember the first immigration officer in New York, who shook my hand and said “Welcome to America” and wished me good luck. This was done legally. It was a very memorable experience.

I would like to remind America that you have the right to pick and choose who comes into this county. In order to protect our future, remember that we live in an orderly society with laws meant to be respected.
