Former Marine fighting threat of deportation to Mexico

The visa process is incredibly stressful for any immigrant looking to establish residency here in the United States. It is even more stressful -- and, indeed, treacherous -- for those who have resided in the country illegally. Deportation is an obvious threat, but applying for a visa is a very complicated matter. The illegal immigrant [...]
