I was born in Managua, Nicaragua, the second of 5 children. I was about 15 months old when I had my first contact with the United States of America. This happened through my father returning home after spending a year at the University of Florida, Gainsville in a graduate course of Sanitary Engineering. He admired this country and its people and he taught his wife and children to love and admire it too. I remember that he used to shave early in the morning while listening to Good Morning America and the voice of the United States of America.
Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR) Update
With the Senate passing its immigration bill last June and the House currently working on its own legislation, comprehensive immigration reform is a likely reality. Although legislation is far from final, the expected overhaul will certainly have a monumental impact on all facets of immigration law.
What Are You Doing to Prepare for CIR?
