Re: “Immigration 101

It is a very difficult question from the human perspective but if I may share with you my experience. I came from Canada (ok, not a third world country) and fell in love with someone of the same sex. Were I straight, it would have been no problem. I could gotten married and voila- green card and then citizenship. Instead I had to leave the country and then reapply , and due to my work skills immigrated legally- took 2 years and eventually became a citizen. In the meantime people can cross the border illegally, and live and work here. I understand that people want to better their lives economically, but for god's sake, so do half the people in the world.Mexico just happens to have the good fortune to be geographically next to the US making it much easier to cross over than someone from Africa, Asia etc who might want to come here. I think that they get a free pass on this issue and no matter which way you cut it, you are still coming here illegally and this is grossly unfair to all the people who try to do it the legal way (such as I did.)
