• Why can't we help immigrants apply for citizenship?

    Why do we make citizenship so hard and expensive? Might as well show them mercy and shoot them on the spot instead of deporting them back to their crappy nations where they'll likely suffer and die anyways.

  • Why is there unemployment in the US as the American people (similar to the EU with 28 countries) have 50 states to choose from to work in?

    In addition, if a graduate can't get a suitable job in Los Angeles and moving to Canada, Australia, New Zealand, UK, Dubai, EU or Singapore is not an option, why not think out of the box and move intercontinentally in the US to New York instead? One can always save up for the flight, land up a job in advance... show more
    In addition, if a graduate can't get a suitable job in Los Angeles and moving to Canada, Australia, New Zealand, UK, Dubai, EU or Singapore is not an option, why not think out of the box and move intercontinentally in the US to New York instead? One can always save up for the flight, land up a job in advance by telephone interview and Skype, or even travel by Amtrak or Greyhound via Chicago to make a new life and build a new future in a different region on the other side of the country. Similarly, someone from Boston could land a good job with an excellent benefits package in Honolulu. Same nation, same legal right to live and work in all 50 states, same people and no language barrier. What makes the mobility so difficult then? In Europe, many Dutch move to Belgium, many French move to Luxembourg and many Germans move to Netherlands in search of a new life and future.

    Best answer: BUT it isn't that easy is it? TRUE

    you have to deal with a lot of red tape True and just the way it is.

    English teaching schools etc. are often difficult to deal with and they don't pay you really hardly anything do they? TRUE
    Up to you to search out the higher paying jobs or take a second or third job to pay your bills.
    A BILLION unemployed on the planet want ANY job too.

    The days of wandering the planet at will ended last century.
    It can still be done just takes a lot of effort.

    HOW MUCH MONEY TO BUY A HOME OR SOME PLOT OF LAND OVER THERE TOO?

    Gosh do you want the place with the lakefront view, Five acres to grow your food or a cold water place with a shared toilet.

    of course you know every place in the USA is exactly the same price.
    MORE money gets you a nicer place.
    Did you expect a pension and free medical care?
    this type of immigration usually requires a Million or more.IF ALLOWED.

    It can be cheaper to live in the other place. The other place also has lower wages. The bargains were all taken by millions of others years ago.

    Can you do it for a year or two is a much easier thing.

    As there are many teachers of English and many students, IT helps if you are a qualified TEACHER of Language, It helps if you are at the top levels teaching at a University level..
    Basic conversation is a much different lower paid job.

    How is it possible for a U.S. citizen to move to a 3rd world country and be able to stay there legally?
    YOU ASK PERMISSION(VISA) from the government of the country. They decide YES or NO

    US CITIZENS have no rights to move in anywhere other than the USA. All countries have local people that also want jobs.


    The world has an estimated ONE BILLION unemployed and many more underemployed. Obviously an employer wants to pay as low a salary as they can.to get a teacher of a certain quality.
    As the students cannot afford very much it is not HUGE.

    200 countries on the planet the rules are not identical the need for an English teacher is not the same in every village in every city EVERYDAY. You look and then look again a while later for what openings and NEEDS some place has.

    DO NOT expect to be buying a place for many years. Renting some small place until you get your better job with better salary.
    Seriously do you not think that there are others on the planet quite capable of teaching English.
    Australians, Canadians, New Zealanders and many others.

    You look for the place that NEEDS you The place that has trouble getting teachers.
    You then determine WHY they have trouble? Poor pay, bad working conditions , the weather, the politics or whatever it is.
    The nice job the great pay is also wanted by everyone else.Much harder to get and you need to be VERY GOOD at your craft.
    There are ways to explore the world a year or two each country and you move on.

    MOVING IN in no longer EASY but possible

    Most teaching English do it as just a temporary thing moving on to other places for next job.

    the BEST jobs have the most applicants and expect high quality credentials on your teaching ability.
    Just being a native speaker does not make you a good teacher.

    It can be done it is not easy.and takes a lot of time.
    What other skills do you have to offer this potential country? Maybe you speak their language too and also teach mathematics, Maybe you have some other high level training NEEDED by the country.

    Millions around the world JUST LIKE YOU want the better job the nicer place. You make yourself the best candidate you can . MINIMAL qualifications is no longer enough,
    Being from US is to mean what? Other countries also have qualified teachers of English.looking for that special place to call home.

    Good Luck It is possible. It is not EASY

  • Should United States of America build a wall in its Canadain border?

    Best answer: Yes. Over 3,000 Mexicans take a plane to Canada every year and come into the US through the US-Canadian border. It only costs $300 for a one-way trip to Canada from Mexico, so this is a lot more common than you'd think.

  • Should Immigrants be allowed Benefits/Welfare. I say if they can't afford to keep themselves, we shouldn't keep them at all!?

    Best answer: This is why Trump wants merit-based immigration instead of a lottery system. No other countries take immigrants on a lottery basis - unless they have the potential to contribute and add to society they are not considered.

  • University immigration policy?

    Best answer: You are a US citizen, and the best proof of US citizenship in this universe (and perhaps beyond) is a valid US passport. You can't have a Certificate of Naturalization, nor would you be able to get one if you cut out both of your eyes and offered them to the goddess Shiva, because you didn't naturalize, so... show more
    Best answer: You are a US citizen, and the best proof of US citizenship in this universe (and perhaps beyond) is a valid US passport.

    You can't have a Certificate of Naturalization, nor would you be able to get one if you cut out both of your eyes and offered them to the goddess Shiva, because you didn't naturalize, so you are NOT a naturalized citizen. You became a US citizen automatically when your parent naturalized while you were still a minor living under their care -- automatically -- by act of law, the "Child Citizenship Act of 2000."

    So clearly, the clerk at the University of Houston is a dummy and you should file a formal complaint. There's no better document than your US passport, and if the university doesn't accept it as proof of your citizenship, you need to visit a lawyer who grabs them by the hair, turns 'em around, and rips them a new, really big one.

    If you were in California, I could help you out with such a letter, but since you are in Texas, I can't.

He wants to get a job and maybe stay longer, but obviously that would be illegal, so I'm wondering what other visas might allow him to stay longer and work legally? Are there any? As a citizen I've never had to think about this so I really don't know much about the visas available in the US. Also wondering if he were to be accepted at a college here, if that might open up additional visa possibilities?
