  • I went to prep school and college in the States. I don't know if they are still issuing SSN, but they gave me one for college. The only thing is, I need authorization from the INS, or ICE today for employment outside my college, you are allowed to work 20 hours a week. I come from means, so I got my self a nice villa. I got my self a credit card, and now I have a cr edit score of 871. I have a credit limit of $75K. I have a B-1 visa now. I come from a westernized country, I speak and write perfect English, better than many American born citizens. America is the best country on Earth, and it would be a dream for me to at least have a green card. I have access to funds numbering in the 7 figure range. I have aunties and cousins who live there and who are full citizens now. I've been to 30 states. America is a huge country. Not counting Alaska, Hawaii, and island territories. America was founded, or should I say invaded by Europeans who wanted freedom of religion, among other things, but that is the main one. They slaughter millions of native people who have been living here for centuries. In present day America, they now invade other countries, in the name of democracy, and now the government denies them entry?? Even tourist visas are denied minutes into the interview to obtain one. Sure, you could argue that many of those people would not come back. Some of those people could be potential terrorist who are not here to go to Disney World. I understand that. Back to the point. I would love to immigrate to America. I could take my chances and ener the 'lottery", EXCEPT, if you enter it. You cannot enter the country!!!! It's retarded. I could go and overstay since I have enough funds for 2-3 life times. Take out travelers insurance just in case. I went to the hospital once for a fracture, and the hospital bill was $12K, I was there for about 20 hours. Half waiting. It was a minor fracture. Thank God I had the money but I haggled them to give me a 20% discount, which they did. But I just can't overstay, because it's the wrong thing to do. Sure, I have had a few traffic infractions. I dont want to break the law. So, can somebody offer me some suggestion on what I can do to immigrate to this wonderful and beautiful country. Before it literally is no more. I will work for nothing even.

I think Trump doesn't even know what the fuc of concentration camp is he probably thinks it's some kind of retreat where people study

And they would gladly start small family businesses there too and large companies seeing an influx of people would bring in their businesses too. Hell I've been saying this with homeless people to. Just fix up these ghost towns and give them a home and a bus system to take them to jobs.

  • Every country has immigration laws. The issue with ours is it is far to complicated. We can't just remove immigration laws and let everyone come in with no system in place, just not a logical or good way to do it. We need to improve the system dramatically. Expedite the process. People want the government to have complete control of healthcare...yet these morons can't even do things far more simple like immigration properly or quickly. The Federal government should have their hands in far less at this point, because they do everything poorly.

    • @FluffyBadger As a side note, Naturalization is the act of granting an immigrant citizenship, the people applying for it have already been allowed into the country. The statistics you should be looking at are the number of visas, and other short-term methods of gaining legal residency, which generally lead to citizenship. Those have been reduced significantly under the Trump administration.

  • i'm refugee from Bosnia living in US since 97 , my first stop was Germany but they refused to extend my visa because the war has stopped in Bosnia and they simply said go back . Back to what? everything was destroyed and it was definitely not safe because my town was still under Serbian control ( until this day 2020) so how can i go back to the ones who kicked me out in the first place? Germans didn't care especially that one fat fuck nazi who thought that he needs to give us lessons in how the wash machines work. Thank God we heard from refugee authorities that USA is accepting refugees from Bosnia and we can apply, and so we did ! waited two years to get approval , medical check , background check everything check and here i'm Grateful and Humble giving back to community as much as i can. I'm a trucker delivered to every state, America is a beautiful country and majority of Americans are nice i'm talking about Americans without accent the ones who are born here,because there is still some people with hate in their hart who think you can't be an American if you still have the Accent so it becomes discouraging more often lately because some propagate and make it seem as if there is no difference between legal and illegal immigrants anymore.. we stilling jobs , collect welfare, free medical etc . Energy has become very negative amongst the whites blacks and latinos in this country just like pre war Yugoslavia between Bosnians Croats and Serbs so my memories are coming back about warmongering propaganda. Be careful America you got something nice going on here don't destroy it .

  • The problem with "chain immigration" is that is it being abused by "birth tourism," which is oddly not even mentioned in this commentary. Birth tourism involves pregnant women (sometimes with the help of an agent) who go to the US as tourists with the undisclosed purpose of giving birth while they are there. The child then automatically becomes a US citizen, and then the mother gets a residency permit rather easily and other close family members as well (though apparently not fast enough, in the case of the poor kid who was interviewed about his father). The intent of family member visas is good-- to keep families together. The waiting times are inhumane. But something needs to change to avoid abuse. In come cases, children are brought into the world for the sake of the visa.

  • Get in line??? Immigration isn't a freaking drive-through at McDonald's it's a serious amount of time and work and in the end of it all it seems unless you're an intelligent white man like John Oliver, which he clearly had a hard time getting citizenship too, it's damn near impossible. What do these people think? Do they believe they just walking up to a window saying "si I'd like to order a green card with a side of citizenship por favor" it doesn't work that way at all. Me personally I'm for a more open border. And note I didn't say completely open I said MORE open. I know we have to worry about criminals and stuff coming to our country but it's not like 90% of crime in America doesn't happen because of Americans. We let rich white folks sit on their ass all day making money off the little man and it's those same bastards that say "oh theyre taking our jobs" it's just rubbish every bit of it and then you have the not so rich Americans that just parrot what others are saying without the slightest bit of research. Without immigration we would all be speaking French or German or Spanish or The Queens English or whatever country our ancestors came from. and by the way I could argue that the first colonial's to set foot in America wasn't exactly legal immigration if you ask the natives. we brought disease crime we were rapists and some of our ancestors I assume we're good people, a little trumpspeak there, but the fact of the matter is that's true the awful stuff we did to the natives. We were the invaders. Not the hardworking Mexican family trying to flee from horrifying conditions. Not the Irish fleeing from famine, they were persecuted too, it wasn't the Italians trying to leave behind a brutal dictatorship. It was our ancestors who stole land from the natives, forced them into the wilderness, raped and murdered them and spread smallpox among the populace. The mexicans didn't do that. Now I know I'm going on a tirade but we need to wake the hell up and stop being afraid of foreigners who seem different than us just because they don't run around acting entitled and thinking they deserve rights. They deserve freedom from fear and yet we have a funny way of making them feel terrified and looking at them as subhuman invading Huns when we are the ones we should be looking at with fear and scepticism not the foreigners Edit: I'd like to quote the Declaration of Independence for a moment. Among the reasons for declaring independence our founding fathers said of the king "He has endeavored to prevent the population of these states; for that purpose obstructing the laws of naturalization of foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new appropriations of lands"

    • @BenJamin Croft it doesnt sound that cold, then again I'm cold myself and nihilistic, it sounds intelligent and well thought out but that whole wait 30 years is still too long for anyone no matter what their reason for immigration is. I know there's no perfect way to have legal immigration but there is still alot of work we can do to make it better and I'm gonna be honest I didn't think about the ones who come from unconstitutional nations that would make it alot harder but we still make it hard enough for the ones who need to come over for asylum. Immigration is a topic people could just go on and on all day and there will be no right answer on either side but I'm glad that you're actually intelligent about it instead of being like most people around here, Alabama, who are just nothing but a bunch of xenophobes afraid of immigrants taking jobs that we don't even want ourselves

      Quentin ShockQuentin ShockVor Monat
    • @Quentin Shock If you're trying to immigrate from a country that clearly shows that the majority of it's population doesn't support a constitutional republic, then of course you're either gonna be flat out denied or the process is gonna take virtually for ever. DUH! And to try and put this in perspective for you, you are now the 999,999th person in line, for this year, who wants to claim asylum/refugee status, citizenship, and/or a visa to the U.S. Unless your claims fall within the parameters of what our country's laws stipulates, in order for you to *legitimately* claim asylum/refugee status, citizenship, and/or any kind of visa; then that will no doubt allow you to jump in front of the millions of other people before you; until then you're just gonna have to patiently wait, for the next 30ish years, like the rest of the millions of people ahead of you. In layman's terms, you're *not* that important. I know it sounds cold but if you can't handle a little suffering then you bring on bottomless suffering.

    • @Stephen2462 You don't need to say anything because that's what you leftwing, SJW, liberals keep surreptitiously emphasizing your Democratic overlords (who easily manipulated you into thinking this way) to keep doing it; under the asinine assumption that it will somehow stem the flow of legal and/or illegal immigration (only for the sole purpose to get your votes bty). rme & smh.... pathetic sheeple.... And the facts and evidence clearly shows that over years and years of just blindly throwing taxpayer's money at a myriad of economic, and intrinsic societal problems within a country, in the asinine hope that it will somehow "fix" *our* immigration problem, bore no fruit whatsoever, and is such a glorious absence of sophistication on one's part. In layman's terms, money doesn't solve everything.

    • @BenJamin Croft We don't know if it has or hasn't, that's just your speculation. I'm not going to pretend to be an expert on such policy, so I don't see the point in discussing it either way. I didn't say anything about foreign aid lol. It's just another irrelevent tangent you use to distract from the fact you have no argument. I never took that position in the first place. As I said, you're just making a strawman argument. Typical Trumpie shill behavior.

    • @Stephen2462 Do I have to remind you again? We give billions of dollars a year to Mexico to help prevent poverty, crime, illegal border crossings, helping Mexican authorities capture drug lords - supporting improvements to the Mexican judicial system and security, including along Mexico’s southern border, helping stem the flow of immigrants from Central and South America, ect., ect. Yet none of this has improved the situation in any way shape or form with the U.S. and Mexico border. This what you were emphasizing we should be doing in order to help stem the flow of immigrants, both legal and illegal, into this country and what one of your asinine arguments was based on. From what I'm understanding, you're now changing your position because of the factual evidence I have provided? That we should keep our immigration system strict and build a wall because all the money in the world is not going to improve the situation in these countries at all. Typical leftwing SJW liberal behavior. smh...

    • @BenJamin Croft Aaand another strawman. Of course, you can't handle an actual argument, so all you can do is make them up. What a loser.

  • Talking about this with other Americans is so annoying. 1. They scream they want legal immigrants, not illegal immigrants, yet they know nothing about the process. 100% nothing. They do not educate themselves about the matter. 2. They don't know and don't care about the history about immigration, and how people pretty much just walked into the USA and became an American citizen. 3. They just scream that we should stop focusing on immigration, and focus on domestic issues. Pretty much, nothing happens. :/
