Quote of the Day: National pride

“She was moved to tears... She commented about how much she loved this country.”

--Matthew Kolken, the attorney for Yaderlin Hiraldo Jimenez.

Last week, Jimenez- whose husband is a U.S. soldier missing in Iraq- received a green card and legal residency status from immigration authorities. She had previously been threatened with being deported and kept out of the U.S. for a decade due to her status as an illegal immigrant before government officials recanted.
