You Ain't Going Nowhere

In the midst of this immigration debate, and amid numerous Conservative articles decrying foreigners, it's nice to see conservative columnist Jeff Jacoby taking a stand for people who immigrate to this country legally.
Unlike the illegal immigrants who have been raising such a ruckus across the country in recent days, green-card holders like Sumathi broke no laws to get here. Most of them are highly skilled professionals who eventually become US citizens, enriching their adopted country in the time-honored immigrant manner.

. . . It is no virtue to split husbands from wives, or parents from young children. What is being done to immigrants like Sumathi Athuluri is both unjust and unwise. Above all, it is unworthy of a nation built by immigrants.
Anyway, nice to see.
