    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."

    Which is why they dangle the jobs in front of the poor and then treat them like criminals the entire time they are here doing the jobs that we let the employers hire them for.




    We are a country of immigrants.

    Its what made us so strong.

    Most republicans can't tell the difference between a Mexican American and an Illegal, those two words have melted together in their minds a long time ago. Unless hes in a suit waving an American flag while speaking flawless english, they just see a filthy job stealing alien.

    How true.

    I dont know how many times I have asked someone who I heard saying something about a latino "how do you know they are an illegal?".

    Its a sad world when people need to find others to deride so they can feel worthy themselves.

    Having money you're willing to invest in local businesses WILL gain one citizenship to MOST nations.

    I think the citzenship-by investment threshold for Canada was about $400,000 five or so years ago.

    Don't know if the USA has a specific dollar amount, but I'm fairly certain we have the same instant citizenship deal, too.

    And why should it be made easy???? At the time it WAS made easy was because this country NEEDED immigrants. In fact this country went out and BROUGHT immigrants here. The world has changed; this country has changed. It's like comparing apples to oranges in this 21st century.

    It's actually much harder than answering a few questions. This flowchart outlines it pretty well:
