How I Became “Illegal” While Operating A Business, and Working with the Military

America is country of immigrants, immigrants who built this country into the richest and most powerful nation on earth. Our immigration policy has become exclusionary, seeking reasons to deny rather than accept. Blaming immigrants for what they cost America, rather than what they contribute to America. Calculating the number of jobs they “take” from Americans, rather than the number of jobs that they create for Americans.

I came to the USA legally 10 years ago, after starting an information management company in South Africa. I brought this company to the USA. I bought a home, I pay my taxes. I do work for the US Military Intelligence Agencies. My petition for permanent residence was denied on administrative grounds. Now I am an illegal, but still doing work for the US Military!

It's time for a new conversation about immigration in America, and it starts with us.
