This LA Times story was posted on the immigration forum this morning, and as I read it I realized it’s actually the story of one of the members of immigrate2us.net. It’s a well-written story with a great, accompanying audio slide show.
For Heather, 29, every day is a struggle. The native of rural Kentucky didn’t know how drastically her life would change after she fell in love and married Evaristo Suarez, an illegal immigrant.
The couple assumed that Evaristo, 30, would be eligible for a green card once they got married and that they would raise their family near her hometown. But because he had crossed into the United States illegally more than once, he was denied a visa and must wait 10 years before reapplying to return legally.
