Meet Emilio. His parents brought him here from Mexico when he was a toddler. He grew up in KC, attended a KC high school, made excellent grades, is an exceptional artist, is kind, honest and involved in the community. I’ve been a mentor to him for 5 years. Unfortunately he can’t go to college because of America’s immigration laws. Fine. We’ve started the process for him to get citizenship status. Just like previous waves of immigrants from Russia, Ireland, Italy, etc, he has earned his citizenship. We aim to help him get it so he won’t be sent back to Mexico. Thanks to Jose Faus for sound advice.
