But now this week it will deport two members of the West Virginia Symphony.
From Norman Lebrecht:
Two orchestral players from Bulgaria who have lived in the US for 14 years are to be deported this week.
Yuliyan Stoyanov, 40, and his wife Smiliana Lozanova, 36, have played since 2006 in the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra, at Charleston.
Yuliyan’s visa expired in 2013 once he earned his PhD from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music, where he became a faculty member. He also set up a strings academy with his wife.
But they failed to qualify for immigrant status as ‘foreign nationals of extraordinary ability’ and on Wednesday they will be flown home to Sofia, via Paris, together with their two US-born children.I have no problem with this call. They overstayed their welcome.
President Obama just proved that when it comes to deporting illegal aliens Yes We Can.
But how about cracking down on the people who load up our welfare system (including food stamps, not just TANF), who rape, who murder, and who sell drugs?
