I always here people wondering why Mexicans just don't enter the country legally, since its such an easy feat. In order for any imigrant to get in this country today (as oposed to our ancestors who just got on a boat and waited to get here.) you have to pass a test. 10 random questions are asked and you must get atleast 6. Hard for someone who has never been here, and would of cut our ancestors ability to enter the country by at least 75%. And even worst, people that have lived here their entire lives can barely pass this test. Heres 10 random questions used by the INS. The House of Representatives has how many voting members? If both the President and the Vice President can no longer serve, who becomes President? How many justices are on the Supreme Court? When was the Declaration of Independence adopted? When was the Constitution written? How many amendments does the Constitution have? What did Susan B. Anthony do? The Federalist Papers supported the passage of the U.S. Constitution. Name one of the writers. What territory did the United States buy from France in 1803? What stops one branch of government from becoming too powerful? So how did you do? And remember, google isn't in the INS testing room. This doesn't even include the costs and fees associated with becoming a citizen. I know a really smart, hard working guy who came over from Britain some years ago. He's been fighting back and forth to become a citizen and tells me its a total nightmare dealing with it. This isn't the "give me your tired hungry and poor" anymore its, "stay out, unless you're rich."
