Every time I read articles or see people becoming citizens of this United States of America, it warms my heart. How grateful I am for them doing what ever it takes to become legal. What a great example they are to their children, and what a great message it sends to others about the importance of following the laws of the land. The article in the Deseret News ("Proud Americans," Dec. 10) especially touched my heart. I could almost feel the excitement.
I know that immigration is a big deal in our country and in politics. I have to hope that the politicians will not change the laws and bend the laws just to get elected. Becoming a citizen is a big deal, and when it is done right, it brings a great sense of satisfaction and accomplishment. Please don't demean what others have worked so hard for just to satisfy those who don't want to do the work.
