Sister Takes Citizenship Oath for Disabled Brother

Sister Takes Citizenship Oath for Disabled Brother

"In the little, tidy living room in a house off Stassney Lane, Nicolasa Velasquez raised the right hand of her older brother, looked immigration officials in the eye and pledged on his behalf to defend the U.S. Constitution.  He is an invalid, her brother Antonio, and in such cases the law encourages a court-appointed legal guardian to handle the application for citizenship." - Austin American-Statesman, Jan. 13, 2014.  [Hats off to attorney Thomas Esparza, Jr.!]
