Letter to the Editor: A nation of immigrants

Lynn Booth
Truckee

Here we are in the midst of the election season, and as I canvass for Charlie Brown, a question occurs to me: how can resident aliens and green card holders become citizens? We know they must pass a test given by the Immigration and Naturalization Service, but what educational opportunities exist here in Truckee to help them in doing so? I recently chatted with a man who has lived here for thirty years and contributed mightily to this community, but he is unable to vote. This country is a nation of immigrants, and that should be true here in Truckee as well. Thank you.
