Report on two individuals' plight offers readers valuable insight.
My compliments to Anthony Orozco of the Reading Eagle for writing the informative and compassionate article about the two ladies who immigrated here years ago escaping violence and hoping to be a part of our great country ("Their treacherous trip," Reading Eagle, May 9).
Orozco did a great job of letting these courageous women tell their story, which brings a very personal side to the hotly debated immigration issue. They have both been through so much, yet they didn't present any anger regarding the president and his actions and statements.
It's a shame that our elected lawmakers have had no success in developing a plan to improve legal immigration. Immigrants have always been a part of the fabric of our nation. It's who we are.
The devil is in the details of comprehensive immigration reform, but with the right kind of leadership there must be a way that immigrants can come to our country and be contributing members of our community. I hope that as we go to vote in the primary and general elections that we can elect fair-minded legislators that can help create a reasonable immigration process that will benefit our country.
