Immigration and Naturalization Service

Dear Mr. President:

I just read several letters on this site regarding the frustrations of seemingly honest, hard-working and decent people who are simply trying to immigrate to our great country and become citizens. Their stories are heart rending and, frankly, make me mad. The performance of our Immigration and Naturalization Service in these cases, if accurate as described in these letters, is embarrassing at best.

One hard working student writes that her family has waited 20 years to earn their citizenship. Another wife, mother, and US citizen writes that her husband and the father of her two children is unable to immigrate, citing several examples of simply appalling poor performance by the INS.

Mr. President, the people I read about in these letters are the kind of people this country was built on, and they are what we need here now. I simply cannot understand why they are treated this way by our government. I am embarrased and ashamed by the performance of the government I am responsible for as a voter. Why does your administration seemingly do so little to enforce our immigration laws and to ensure the INS performs its job efficiently, correctly, and in a manner that would make any US citizen proud?

Please do not use comments for personal attacks. One of the goals of this project is to allow these open letters to foster civil (and civic) debate, so please keep personal attacks to yourselves, even if you disagree with the letter/comments here. Better yet, write a letter yourself.
