hope dashed

Things did not go well in Mexico for the friends I wrote about last week. It’s not surprising, but I feel pretty depressed about it. They are the sort of people you cannot help but like. Theirs is the sort of story average Americans wouldn’t bat an eye at. Carlos was a model immigrant – a devoted student, fluent in English, successful in all the standards of American culture. Yet the demands of our immigration laws keep him out and exile his city-school-teacher wife. It is a tragedy. The couple has a few very remote leads, but it appears they have on some level resigned to move on. I certainly don’t blame them. Immigrate2us is so full of support and hope for them, but there’s almost never a way around a false claim to U.S. citizenship. The hope for their situation turned out to be some sort of rumor or misunderstanding.
