An I-9 Lawyer’s Lament

"I love my job.  And I help my clients save boatloads of money by
providing training and completing audits of their I-9s.  But it is hard –
extraordinarily difficult sometimes – to know that instead of helping
the migrant farmworkers, the cooks, the factory workers, the
housekeepers, and the construction workers, I am a key player in their
loss of jobs.  And while I sometimes feel that I have let them down, I have to
remind myself that I would try harder, do more – if only the immigration
laws provided a path to legalization." – Nici Kersey, May 12, 2012.
