Dear future president,
Please consider creating an easier path to citizenship for immigrants. They come to America in search of a better life, and I don't think it's right to call ourselves "a city upon a hill" when we make it so difficult for people to come here. Immigrants have a lot to offer and they take on jobs that we Americans won't take.
In Alabama, anti-immigration laws have caused lower-middle class Latinos to flee the state, losing possibly millions of dollars in potential labor. Many communities, full of people that were eager to make a living, fled in fear of being labeled an immigrant.
Five years is too long for some people to wait to become naturalized, and there are so many people waiting for a better life in America. And in retrospect, I don't recall my own ancestors needing a green card to live in my country.
