Immigration Reform, But Not What You Think

1 Dec

Yes Martha, our borders are long and unsecure. But this is America, a land of shining hope to millions around the globe. Should are borders be better monitored and secured. Yes.

But that’s not the immigration reform I’m talking about. I want immigration reform for those who are going by the rules and regulations for legal immigration. Why you ask, because I’m frustrated with a system that is slow and extremely expensive for those of us who marry foreign nationals.

You see, I got married this year, shocking all of my family and friends as to, who, where, who is she, when did you meet her, when did you have the time and how come we didn’t know.

All good question then, but now I wonder why we let congress take away automatic citizenship to foreign nationals, who married Americans, during the Clinton Presidency. The last time Congress and a President agreed on Immigration Reform, well amnesty.

Now I have to fill out mountains of forms and forever paying out a small fortune. All to have my lovely wife be a legal resident in America.
Who determines the cost of these forms? Most of documents are one to two pages long, but cost varies from free to well over $1,000. And its not just one form to fill out, we’ve now filled out 12 documents, around 40 pages and the cost, well, lets just say again, its been a small fortune.

So how about giving a break to those of us who are playing by the rules and doing the right thing
