    Heck, if they'd guard the borders for us, I'm all for giving them houses along the borders and automatic weapons to boot. They'd do a better job of it than our border patrol is allowed to, I'm sure...

    All it takes to get a permanent VISA into the USA (and most other nations, too) is to bring enough money to start some kind of business.

    That explains the influx of taco trucks.

    Restaurants that can double as border taxis! Win/win!

    Ya I saw that to. Half million dollars in real estate. Thats gonna require atleast 30% down on the primary residence and 50% down on the rental. So thats about 200,000 USD.

    So its just like everything else in this country, citizenship is for sale to anyone, even our enemies, provided you have enough cash. Who here thinks this will do anything about the poor immigrants flooding our southern border??

    The reeling housing market has come to this: To shore it up, two Senators are preparing to introduce a bipartisan bill Thursday that would give residence visas to foreigners who spend at least $500,000 to buy houses in the U.S.

    The provision is part of a larger package of immigration measures, co-authored by Sens. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., and Mike Lee, R-Utah, designed to spur more foreign investment in the U.S.

    I'm sure the Iranian Community in Great Neck,NY, will be contributing big time to Upchuck Shumer's Re-election Campaign Fund.
