What Does Immigration Law Mean To Me?
“Both my maternal and paternal great grandparents emigrated from their home countries to the United States. Specifically, my paternal side came over from Italy and my maternal side migrated from Lebanon and Turkey. My great grandmother had a strong reason for leaving her home country and coming to America. She resided in Turkey and was of Christian Orthodox faith. Because of her religious beliefs, she was persecuted. She was pull out of her house, taken out into the street, and shot several times in the back with a gun. She was fortunate enough to survive that horrific experience and knew that she could no longer remain in her country. She came to the United States where she lived to the age of sixty-one and was able to see my mother be born. Without the beauty of the immigration system, I would not be here today.”
