Current patchwork of immigration laws tear families apart, hurt businesses
To the editor:
As an immigration attorney in Iowa for the past 15 years, I’ve see firsthand how our current patchwork of immigration laws tears Iowa families apart and hurts Iowa businesses. Many relatives of U.S. citizens and residents have waited 20-plus years since they first started the application process to immigrate because of per country limits.
Employers filing for skilled or professional employees wait 17-plus years for a critical employee’s residency to be processed. Young people who were brought here as children, undocumented or visa overstays, are educated in our public schools and after graduation can’t use that education because there isn’t a process to apply for them.
