- Feb 28, '09 by rolland542Quote from Alexk49The first organization actually helped with getting the law in Oklahoma passed. Unfortunately, nursing got caught up in the stuff. If you are here legally as I am, you should not be looked down upon from all your American co-workers. My education, received in Canada, is the equivalent to 3 years college here.........hmmmmmmCouple of issues you need to be aware of.
I see many commercials in prime time from this group;
Some one is funding this effort. I see more and more commercials.
Second there is a show on a TV
Perhaps there are not enough agents to enforce the law but it doesn't mean coming in illegally is legal. Shop lifting is often not caught but it doesn't mean it is legal.
secondly, If the American Government worked a little harder - using their grossly oversized heads - they woudl figure out that opening up the worker visas - and following them closer, would generate more tax revenue, foster a more open approach to immigration on a country that was built on immigration, and resolve alot of the problems they have now with illegals. But no- let's take the heavy handed American approach and spend millions of dollars to ship these illegals back home just so they can run across the border again with their 10 gallon jug of water.
Open your minds - not all foreigners are here illegally............
- Feb 28, '09 by Ginger's MomI agree that there a difference between legal and illegal immigration. Also coming from Canada and Mexico is very different coming from another country to the USA.
I am not a legal expert only a citizen. My observations are that as the economy worsens Americans are becoming less tolerant to immigration. This is only my personal observation in what I read and hear.
- Feb 28, '09 by Silverdragon102When I visit the US I am from a country that participates in a visa waiver but I still have a form that is stapled into my passport and I have to give it back when I exit the US. We even recently have had a member on here who was deported from the US for 10 years as they discovered they was here illegal although entered legally. Things do change especially when economic situations change. Best things if in doubt is talk to a immigration lawyer with experience in the area you are in.
- Jul 23, '09 by Gem1210390Quote from MedSurg32RNHiI look at a place like the UK and wonder how wonderful it would be not to worry about Health Care Insurance, lots of time off and pension. The point I am making the grass often looks greener.
Medsurg32RN after reading your post how wonderful it must be to not have to worry about health care insurance in the UK. I can say our health care system is not that great. It take months you get things like an MRI and CT scan people can be waiting years for surgery such as hip and knee replacements. The NHS does not pay for the best drugs that are available on the market because they can't afford them.
I would also like to say that i pay for my healthcare and it is not free i pay 22% of my wages in taxes and then i have to pay a National insurance on top which covers healthcare.
As a nurse working in the NHS sometimes it is not that great, depending on the department in which you work i have friends that are looking after up to 21 patients at a time with one health care assistant.
So although we can just walk in to a hospital and get treatment it is not always the best. All of our nurses and Doctors try to do the best they can with what they have.
I would just like to say that sometimes the grass is greener on the other side. Having lived in the UK and USA.

You have 2 options open to you either apply for fiancée visa and she comes across, you get married within 90 days and she gets a GC or you get married and you apply for her a spouse visa and she gets a GC.hi everyone..yea um.. quick question..im filipino-american and i met this girl during college that i love very much and planning to marry her after i pass the nclex (hopefully , soon please..hehe)...would she be automatically become a u.s. citizen? i really hate long distance relationships...jus wondering
