No, my wife is not a US citizen, although she has been a legal resident for about 3 years now.

For many years she was one of those spanish speaking "illegals" that you like so much to complain about.

She has worked here illegally from 1989 to 1997 when we got married. Since then she has worked here legally.

Oddly, those immigrants who are so vocal about the problems of America don'tseem to spend nearly half as much time addressing the problems of their native countries.....the very same problems which goaded them to flee in the first place.


Is there anything in particular that you would like her to do about the situation in Colombia?

How about you tell your government to get its troops out of her country for starters? They don't seem to be listening to her.
