Optimism

     Martin Luther King, Jr. did not spread his message of racial harmony by saying "I'm tired of this white/black separation."  Instead, he projected a dream for a better tomorrow.  Gandhi did not say "It's this little man against England."  He exclaimed the bold idea that a single man could be the change he wanted to see in the world.
     These leaders set an example for all who want comprehensive immigration reform this year.  In the spirit of another great leader, President John F. Kennedy, "Ask not when the law will be changed.  Ask how you can change the law today." 
     An estimated 70% of foreign nationals who are in the U.S. without authorization have a family member who is a U.S. citizen.  The answer is for these U.S. citizens to let their representatives know that simple changes will allow hundreds of thousands of persons to become legal, obtain identities, drive with licenses, pay taxes and contribute to society.  (To send a quick e-mail to your Congressperson, click here.)   
     Currently, a foreign national who has been claimed by a family member cannot become a legal permanent resident because traveling abroad -- to obtain the immigrant visa -- triggers a 3 or 10 year bar to reentering the U.S.  Before this 3/10 year bar existed, foreign nationals travelled abroad, obtained immigrant visas and returned to the U.S. and their new legal lives. 
     The 3/10 year bar can be amended or repealed.  Smile.  Make it happen.
