Craig The front page story in Tuesday's newspaper, "A long road," by Bridget Manley was excellent. Not only was it well written, but it championed a worthy practice - legal immigration.
Congratulations to Maria Sandoval for following the required procedures and patiently waiting 16 years for her citizenship application to be approved. Although the wait was lengthy, she had the opportunity to learn and appreciate the rights and responsibilities of citizenship.
Her example should be noted by the many illegal aliens in our community. Enter the United States of America legally and take the steps to attain full membership in the most enviable nation in the world. The effort will be worth all the difficulties.
I am proud to have Maria as a fellow citizen!
