My pain for my son regarding Immigration issue

Jun
16

Dear Mr.Obama,

I am a Canadian citizen and permanent resident of USA, I would like just to share my pain and I am sharing it with you because I have always been your admirer and I wish I had the opportunity to vote for you I would have done it.

In 2007 I moved with my family in Evanston, since my husband was offered an attractive position at an Investment Group. At that time my son was 19 years old. I also have a daughter Maria who was 7 at the time. In 2010 we obtained our permanent residency but since our son was 21 years old and a half at the time he didn’t obtain one.

All this time we have contributed to the US economy by both me and my husband working hard, purchased a residence, paying our taxes and paying 30 000 USD annually without any right of a scholarship for our son who has graduated this year with a cum laude from Loyola University and a Bachelor degree in Finance.

Now we are in a situation when our son without having the permanent residence he is not allowed to work in US, not only that but he is not allowed to lawfully live here.

I am asking you how that could be fare. One would say that we can easily go back from where we came. Our daughter now 11 has made her life here and for her is extremely important to have her life in US with her friends. We are not illegal immigrant, but we face a situation where we have to separate with our child because it has no right to stay or work in US except for a TN (NAFTA) visa or H1B. My son Anton speaks perfectly four languages, graduated with excellence and can’t stay with his family because US immigration system is lottery driven. I sponsored my son to obtain permanent residence but there is no chance for this to happen for another 7 years. Would you please tell me if there is any solution to our situation? If possible I would like to meet you one day with my son and tell you our story in person. I am asking you for your help and advise because my heart is breaking feeling so guilty for having lead my son on this way to come to America and face all this impossible and inhuman situation where we are facing such a difficult choice.

I strongly hope that you will read my letter and give me an advise.

National Guard in Chicago

May
04
I am overseas in iraq serving our nation, and all i keep hearing about is the crime rate in chicago, and how there is a possibility of the national guard coming in to help? that doesn't need to happen! i believe it would cause more conflict. law enforcement personnel are allowed to carry weapons while off duty so that they may tackle any problematic situations, even off duty. why not do the same for military personnel all over the united states, so that we may help law enforcement officials in a more timely fasion than calling 911, but without the civilian population felling like marshal law has been declaired. i swore sir against all enemies, foreign and domestic. i for one wish to hold true to that oath. i love my country and would like nothing more than to make it even better.                                                                            Spc.

Indymac/OneWest/Bergin Financial/Wells Fargo

Apr
30
Mr. President, I've sent you a request for help prevously however, you've not responded. I have a mortgage with who I thought was Indymac Bank. I've come to find out that Indymac was bought out by OneWest Bank and who OneWest is I hadn't a clue. I am a Commercial/Industrial Construction General Contractor and a Union Carpenter Contractor in the Greater Chicago area. Since the meltdown, we seen a dramatic slow in construction projects. This in turn caused me to reduce staff (layoffs) and reduce my pay just to keep my business afloat. With this information I contacted Indymac for a loan modification in March. '09. I submitted my loan modification package in April '09. In June '09 after many lengthy calls for an update, I was told they lost my paperwork and to resubmit an updated package which I did.  I stopped paying my mortgage in may as I could no longer afford to make the $3,200.00 payments. I was notified in Aug.'09 that I was in foreclosure. This came as a shock as I was told by Indymac to not make the payments and they would be added to the modification. Meanwhile, I've not heard as to the status of the loan modification. Sept.09 I finally hear from Indymac after numerous attempts to contact them for an update, that the loan modification was denied by the investor.  I didn't know who the investor was (later in Feb.2010 a Onewest employee who returned a email in the form of a phone call tells me the investor is Wells Fargo?). In the mean time I'd contacted my attorney to answer the law suit. My mortgage is appproximately $850k (+ -). I don't want to loose my home, however we have just moved into a new phase of the law suit. We have requested discovery on information from opposing council that Bergin Financial is the owner of my mortgage??? I am becoming confused by all the different financial institutions that are apparently involved with my mortgage. Prior to this fiasco my credit was great! I was enjoiying a good life. I built my home and finished in 2005, moved in in May of 2005. My home was appraised at $1,010,000.00 dollars. I had an initial $750k morgage. My home is now worth approximately $575,000.  Although I struggled we always thought the economy would get better as it had in the past. I had several projects on the books that would've paid off my mortgage however, due the economy, these project were abandoned by thier developers and I was left with paying attorney's fees to try and collect the balances which were close to a couple of hundred thousand dollars. My pay is now 2/3rds less than it was 2 years ago. I am in my home however trying my best to fight the foreclosure. We have notified Indymac/Onewest that we are attempting to short sale the property. I would like to apply for a loan modification which would reduce the principle and remove the back payments and reduce the interest rate as I was informed by Indymac was available for me. I'm at a loss. I need to keep key employees working the keep their them and their famalies the same horror I am facing. George R. Fisher, Jr. Deer Park, IL 60010
