Help for a friend

Dear Editor:One of my best friends, Anthony Vission, is currently in immigration lock-up in Aurora. After 46 or more years in this country, powers that be want to deport him back to England. This man loves this country, loves living here, and, in fact, this man has done no harm to another person. Instead, he has contributed positively to the lives of those he has known. Anyone who knows him will agree that he is kind and generous with his time, hardworking, a great outdoorsman and socially talented. He is 66 years old, has never committed a violent or threatening crime, and it is absurd to think that we would lose a citizen such as Anthony to rules and procedure.I have a fax number for any letters of character reference to support Anthony Vissian in his appeal to remain here his chosen home for the majority of his life. Anthony, myself and all of our friends appreciate any effort in this direction.To fax any comments on his behalf, please contact: Attorney Mark Barr, Lichter & Associates at (303) 554-8099, or you can send an e-mail to, I cannot stress the importance of your written opinion of Anthony as a worthy and valuable contributor to our community.Also, if you have any questions, you can contact me at 544-5213.Karon LundyAspen
