Could Someone Please Help This Guy?

Given how time moves on, many of us may not immediately recognize the name
Kwame James. He was the basketball player who restrained Richard Reid, the
shoebomber, who tried to blow up American Airlines Flight 63. He is, clearly, a
hero and he deserves our thanks. However, as a Canadian citizen, he
is having some visa problems.
Given what he did, we'd argue he should
go to the front of the visa line. We know that we have several
Congressional readers of this site. Won't one of you take up his
cause? All he did was save dozens of lives and stop a major terrorist
attack. Someone should do something for this guy. If nothing else,
we can all write our elected representatives.
