Dur­ing im­mi­gra­tion crack­down, 62 find safe haven

Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - VIEWS & VOICES -

It’s al­ways a mo­ment of ex­quis­ite pride to be given the oath of al­le­giance that fi­nally ush­ers an im­mi­grant over the thresh­old into U.S. cit­i­zen­ship, as 62 peo­ple learned anew at a Wed­nes­day cer­e­mony.

But there had to be an in­tense feel­ing of re­lief this time, with fed­eral crack­downs on un­doc­u­mented res­i­dents and prospec­tive ar­rivals at the borders. There are no de­por­ta­tion fears, the worry about the knock at the door. Aloha to all, and wel­come to the U.S. — for good.
