Illegal alien crime victims get U-visas (Mexico-linked Peter Schey, Anna Gorman)

Anna Gorman of the Los Angeles Times informs us that due to a lawsuit brought by the Mexico-linked Peter Schey of the Center for Human Rights and Constitutional Law, some illegal aliens who've been victims of violent crimes will get U visas. She fails to note that Schey has links to the Mexican government, including about this specific matter:
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services issued guidelines for the new visas, which are designated for certain victims who cooperate with law enforcement in the investigation and prosecution of violent crimes.

The visas will enable the immigrants to work and live in the U.S. and to apply for permanent residency after three years. Ten thousand "U visas" will be available each year, along with visas for family members...

...Peter Schey, who sued the Department of Homeland Security for failing to issue the visas, said he had been fighting for this for years on behalf of thousands of violent-crime victims and their families...
Also mentioned: "Leslye Orloff, director of Legal Momentum's Immigrant Women Program in New York".

Please write readers.rep *at* latimes.com and inform them that the Mexican government link is highly relevant information and ask them why that wasn't mentioned.
