After hearing about the deportation of Park University professor Sayed Jamal, many in our area have asked the questions: “Why didn’t he just get legal? Why didn’t he just become a citizen?”

On Thursday, during a news conference attended by Jamal’s wife, brother, three children and attorney Rheka Sharma-Crawford, Crawford answered those questions, saying that while some immigrants succeed, the immigration process isn’t as easy as people think.
