Today, we have been invited to attend a White House briefing for Immigration Voice. It is a great day for the three of us. Being 16, 18 and 20 years of age, we have a lot of life in front of us. Never did we imagine that we would carry the responsibility, on our young shoulders, of representing the issues affecting over a million people.As over a hundred members of Immigration Voice attend this exclusive briefing today, we will be sincerely representing everyone who could not be here to share the harsh realities of decade long green card backlogs. In the next two days, we will also get the opportunity to meet over 150 Congressional offices.
The weeks and months ahead are not going to be easy. We will need the collective voice and participation of every person who cares for this issue. This is an uphill task but together, we will persevere.
Anisha, Rajat and Rithvik
