After close to two years of wrangling with the US Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS), one wonderfully helpful soul at Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison's district office in Dallas is breaking through the bureaucratic entanglement for Mateo. I can't tell you how difficult it has been for us and we speak English! I can't even imagine how difficult it must be for those with less command of the English language.
Carolyn Kobe is my heroine of the day. I've all new respect for Sen. Hutchison. The most aggravating part of this process has been the refusal on behalf of USCIS to accept that there's NO door-to-door postal delivery in Marfa. That pretty much constitutes the extent of our conflict.
