Portrait of Robert Kennedy from 1962

Our attitude towards immigration reflects our faith in the American ideal. We have always believed it possible for man and women who start at the bottom to rise as far as the talent and energy allow. Neither race nor place of birth should affect their chances.

Robert F. Kennedy

Whenever I think about Bobby Kennedy, I feel sad that America was deprived of such a special human being. On June 5, 1968, Senator Kennedy was shot while campaigning in Los Angeles for the Democratic Presidential nomination. I was privileged to serve on the Washington State Steering Committee for his presidential bid. His assassination was a shock and I still feel the loss. But his words still resonate; and his faith in our American ideals inspire me as I help my clients work through the green card and citizenship process towards a better life in the United States.
