A review from a reader of my book, "Abducted Alien-A True Story of My Life and United States Immigration."

I think you did an amazing job on the book, don't stop writing. I was indeed captivated by your story. I am sure you could write another book strictly on what it was like in detail trying to break into the male dominated construction trade. I am in awe on your initiative in all the aspects of your professional life. I admire strong work ethic and I don't see it much in the younger generations. I know that when I went to work in a very male dominated industry in the late 80's that I felt like I stepped back in time about 50 years. It was a nightmare that I couldn't wake up from for ten years. The toxic environment of daily harassment and working an 80 hour week took a huge toll on my health. I don't miss it.

I had lunch today with some close friends who had similar feelings about immigration and told them that my views have changed since reading your book. (Which I have highly recommended to many people this week) We all had a great debate and discussion about the current laws and what needs to change and I was quite surprised by the end of the conversation that most of them had the not thought about all the aspects of the law. I will admit, most people, think about the illegal’s coming in from Mexico and that is all that they ever consider when thinking about immigration. There is indeed a lot of hostility in regards to the Hispanic community as a whole. I used that as my basis for the discussion that is what cuts close to home in my state. We have a lot of illegal Mexicans workers here, due to the large amount of farming in Washington. It turned out to be quite the three hour conversation but I think everyone left with a more open mind and food for thought. So your mission will spread one person at a time but it will take root. Most "straight" people find it hard to believe that those "Moral Turpitude" laws still exist. I assured them they do indeed still are used when it suits the governments purpose to do so.

Warmest Regards, Robbin
