Opponents of President Barack Obama's recent action on immigration – as well as of any kind of legalization policy for undocumented workers – often argue that these initiatives are not fair to America's legal immigrants. These people, it is said, played by the rules, followed the law, paid their taxes and are horrified to see people who did the opposite rewarded. As a legal immigrant, I don't harbor any ill will toward those who came into this country illegally.I don't view illegal immigrants with any hostility.I went through two student visas and a "practical training" permit, which allowed me to work for 18 months.After five years on a green card, and with no legal problems, all taxes paid and having passed a test on American civics, I applied for citizenship.The U.S. gains enormously from its millions of young immigrants, who were desperate to come here and determined to find their American dream.
