What a Dundalk man who has lived in the U.S. for 47 years did on Election Day may cost him his dream.
Marcelino Vilcarino Sr., 71, knows he came extremely close to becoming a U.S. citizen, but now, that's in limbo and he might have to start the process all over again.
The retired cook worked at a restaurant in Little Italy for 25 years. He is not an undocumented immigrant, he is a permanent resident who arrived in the U.S. from Peru in 1969. He even got drafted to fight in Vietnam.
His dream is to become a U.S. citizen. He has already paid the $680 application fee.
On Election Day, he went to the polls.
