Dear President Trump:

I am writing to express my opposition to the newly passed law, Green Light Law in New York State. The law can be invalidated by The United Nations’ Article 8 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Article 8 states: everyone has the right to an effective remedy by the competent national tribunals for acts violating the fundamental rights granted him by the constitution or by law. Article 8 directs all unlawful immigrants be processed by the immigration court system before deportation.

Unlawful immigrants who live in New York State and fail to pay pollution taxes to their home countries, are being hurt by the dishonest offering.

I am in profound disagreement to the Green Light Law, because I am an immigrant. On September 26, 2019 I became a naturalized citizen. I recently discovered the certificate of naturalization may be invalidated by a United States court. Recent data shows increasing denaturalization cases filed against questionable naturalizations.

The Green Light Law would allow for unlawful persons to control pollution rights and do me harm. I am already suffering of numerous health problems, health problems that became as a result of being in this country for twenty seven years. I have become an example of a person wanting to be part of the American fiber, but guided by political circumstance to be against it.

New immigrants become citizens of this country on a daily basis. Many become citizens within five or six year of entering the United States. These new citizens are tax payers, some are from my country of origin, Romania.

The present immigration law provides for the government to participate in a loan sharking scheme to support new citizens. These new citizens are more than willing to pay the health care tax in exchange for employment in the United States, the very tax I am prohibited to pay due to government processing errors and discriminatory practices.

The Green Light Law in New York State allows for new citizens to lend pollution tax to immigrants waiting to legalize their status. Because their immigration status obstructs the unlawful person from paying tax in their country of origin, the law is inefficient.

This new law, allows for United States citizens to discriminate against me in my country of origin, because my tax payments to Romania and the European Union are being delayed. This problem is amplified by the Romanian government’s inability to solve Romania’s deforestation problem. Citizens of Romania are increasingly exposed to pollutants, chemicals that are harmful to their health.

It is a great injustice to be unlawful in the United States, suffer health problems, and be late to pay healthcare taxes to the country of your origin. This brings to question: how does the United States government factor in unlawful status in the international economy?

Unlawful immigrants should be informed, their annual gasoline consumption and pollution output is tracked by the yearly New York State inspection. The government has a duty to allow the unlawful person the ability to comprehend and cognitively connect disadvantages resulting from registering a driver’s license while without legal status.

The New York State government uses financial instruments and pollution laws to manage the environment in way that disadvantages the unlawful persons’ relatives and friends in their country of origin. Economics guides the United States to act in its best interests. New York State is liable, if by Article 8, the unlawful person sues. Governments’ action leads to human rights violations. Violations that unnecessarily increase future costs for the United States.

Furthermore, New York State’s encouragement to violate immigration laws destroys the very ideal this nation is built upon, justice for all. New York State has no right to condemn citizens of other countries to poor health.

  1. What is this about. Should other Romanian naturalized US Citizens worry about this? Your neighbor from Leonte Filipescu 🙂

  2. Don’t read too much into it, I wrote it at a time when I was stressed. I should have it removed by the site owner. I had a more difficult life in the United States than I would have had in Romania perhaps. Highschool was tough with most colleagues not engaging the immigrant. Very difficult to make friends unless they were foreign. I would talk to an American colleague and I could see him not being in the moment as I attempted to communicate. I am struggling to find work in the small town where I live. The lack of support is tremendous. How are you?
