According to an article on msnbc.com: “The lab at Johns Hopkins Medical Center in Baltimore were all gathered in belongs to Dr. Alfredo Quinones-Hinojosa Dr. Q. He is one of the best brain surgeons in the world, but two decades ago, his hands were picking vegetables for $22 a day. Quinones was a migrant worker, living under an old camper top in the middle of a California field.”
Dr. Q clearly legalized his immigration status based on a program that allowed him to do so. This is why we now need comprehensive immigration reform that offers a pathway to legalization for certain undocumented aliens who meet the requirements. All undocumented aliens are not the same. A well-written piece of legislation would distinguish between undocumented aliens who are here to work hard and make a better life for themselves and their families, and gang members who have committed serious crimes.
