It’s a long haul to become legal

Heidi Nunez

Dear Editor,

No sir, what you don’t get, Bob Anderson, is there are many stages a person goes through to be “legal.”

From immigration, you get your work permit that gives you an OK to get a drivers license and a Social Security card. You may then pay taxes and get refunds.

After you get your work permit, you wait two years, pay more money to immigration to get your Social Security number and pay taxes.

You wait another four more years, pay more money to immigration and finally get to be a citizen.
