I am alive in the fullest sense of the word after 33 odd years of having no legal status in the United States. I am now a legal permanent resident and I have you, Chris and the rest of your staff to thank for that. You can only imagine going somewhere and being asked for ID…first I get that sick feeling in my stomach of being turned away…churning…nausea…not being able to even turn out for my son’s games because I do not have any ID. You have no idea the elation of knowing that, that is not part of my life anymore. There is not enough kudos in the world I can extend to you all…you guys were the ones who did this….I am alive. And like a once hesitant turtle I can now stick my head out with confidence …and in this way…with your help I am able to be the definition of and representative of “good/honest immigrants who do not always make the right decisions but are able to understand this and try to make amends”…who want to really make amends.
