I See… A Tale of Two Immigrants

In the heat of congressional wrangling over illegal immigration, the Mormon Third Eye wanted to make sure that readers possess a proper perspective.  Below is the story of two immigrants:

Fernando Guerrero-Lara, an illegal immigrant from the Dominican Republic, was awaiting a March 2011 preliminary removal hearing in U.S. Immigration Court in Texas, when he and a second man allegedly killed two people. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has refused to say why Guerrero-Lara, a Dominican immigrant, was not in custody pending his preliminary March 7, 2011, deportation hearing.

Mustafa Akarsu was neither an immigrant nor a US citizen, but he wanted to be. After over two decades of protecting Americans at the US Embassy in Ankara, Turkey as a local guard, he had been approved for a special immigrant visa and planned on becoming an American citizen with his family. Instead he sacrificed his life for his new nationality when he personally disarmed a suicide bomber who attacked the embassy with a handgun, a hand grenade, and 6 kilograms of TNT. You can go here to donate to a fund that will pay for his family to immigrate to the US and send his children to college.

Which one would you want in your country?

  1. You rock! Thanks for the clarity I wanted to make on the site but was shying away from. Mustafa's son, Sami, and his daughter, Hilal, will make wonderful new Americans. David R.
