There is a misconception that, if an immigrant has an American spouse, parent or child, that there is a legal procedure to legalize that immigrant. The sad reality is not like that. This is why I am involved in advocacy for immigrant rights. What we are fighting for is a balanced approach that protects our borders and our families and give us a reasonable option to fix our broken immigration laws.
