    When The Children Cry - The Affect of Our Immigration Policies on the Forgotten.

    As global REALTORS®, we frequently need the services of an immigration attorney to help our clients gain legal entry into the United States. Steve Maggi, president of SMA Law, is our go-to guy for such services. Aside from being a great attorney, Steve is a very caring, compassionate individual, and we have seen many times how his work has saved the day for our foreign clients.

    Today, I read a blog Steve wrote that really explained U.S. immigration policies and how they have affected thousands of immigrants, not the least of whom are children. I wanted to share his blog with you. If it moves you the way it did me, feel free to pass it on.
