Re "Mia Love's immigrant story may be true, but some questions still linger" (Tribune, Sept. 29):
Mia Love has been telling GOP audiences that her family came here legally from Haiti. She says that since she was born in the United States and her parents filed the proper paperwork before a deadline, the family was given a green card and eventually citizenship. By today's definition, she was an "anchor baby."
Her parents came to the United States in 1974 on a six-month tourist visa. They overstayed their visa, which made them illegal. How did they afford their long overstay in the United States? Were they working illegally? Where did they live?
