I'll pass on that notion. I have oodles and oodles of LEGAL immigrants in my life that I open my home to, and steer my financial and physical support towards. I find them apartments, represent them when the go to the doctor, (language barriers), teach them to drive, find them cars and motorcycles, fix their cars, find them their own lawnmowers, stoves and other appliances. All while I cook ( and grow) my own food, mow my own lawn, wash my own pick up trucks (3) I'm tapped out.
I'ts summer time, and in my "BS little town" as you call it, that means the Black population goes up by about 40. We sponsor Jamaican college students on a work / travel program. I keep bicycles around for the latest batch to use and give them back for the next batch next year. And some of the other locals tote them around to more distant locations as needed with their vehicles. I always ask them, are there any "American" (in their minds) things you want to do but have not done. The answers are almost always the same, They want to drive a fast car or big truck, and.................shoot a gun!!!!!! (It's the same for Indians, Brits, Lebanese, Thai, people I know as well)
A bunch of young, motivated and oh so articulate and polite young Jamaican nationals are coming over next Saturday for some fusion food on the grill and to immerse themselves in a bit of rural America. And of course I get to learn more about their homeland as well.
We are making the trip to Niagara Falls at the end of August too. Too bad they cannot cross the border on their Visa's. They would enjoy all the glitter of Lundy's Lane, etc. And the better view of course. I'll pass along pics, They are such wonderful people to be around.
