So, the person providing this fine material has identified a problem. Anyone care to identify a solution? Here's a BIG hint - don't say "just jump the damn fence, Pedro."

robthelurker - there is a doctorate offered in "rhetoric" ?
{Don't answer that, it's a rhetorical question.}

The education system in USA is so stupid.
Can I get my degree in hair combing and ass wiping?
Oh, I can but the student loans are $250,000?

This clip demonstrates the major economic impact of our system. It's tough now even if you're highly skilled and educated.

@SuperShot, it does show you how long it takes to get a work visa and for most people it's not even an option. Also, you don't get a visa then wait for citizenship, you have to become a resident first.

@Andrew155 the chart isn't saying that you're racist xenophobes. Although a lot of the people I've met that are strongly against illegal immigration are. It's just pointing out that for most people who want to come here legal immigration isn't an option and for most of those that can, it's a very lengthy, difficult, and not mentioned here but expensive process.

Cheers Gerry- yes, most of my friends hold either Masters or Doctorates and would have done when they moved over ( Good Unis too) but from the look of it unless you have money now you are buggered...

my sister lives in muncie indiana, attending ball state university. she has a temporary work visa, she teaches some classes and is getting her phd at the end of this year in composition and rhetoric, she already has job offers for next year. she is doing what she loves and i am happy for her. but politically and financially speaking, its not even all that easy for american citizens working in america, not to mention foreigners.

Madduck, it was easier then. My cousins want to come over but they are educated and speak english, so the requirements for them {and cost} is much tougher than for a 3rd world, unwashed hut dweller that doesn't speak the language and has no job skills.

If any other country accepted as many immigrants as quickly as we do, with the exception of Canada and Australia, they would freak out.

We accept over ONE MILLION people to this country, legally, every single year. That is more generous than any other nation on the planet. Moreover, we are significantly more likely to grant these people citizenship and we actually give their children citizenship automatically.

And for this we are racist xenophobes.

Nice misleading chart. It tells the total time to "immigrate and become a citizen." It obviously takes a long time to become a U.S. citizen. I wouldn't expect to move to France and become a citizen right away.

The real issue is how long it takes to get an immigrant visa to stay and work in the U.S., which you can often get within a year or two at most. With an immigrant visa you can reside in the U.S., work here, enjoy freedom, etc., while waiting for your citizenship to come through.

WoW- quite a few of my old school friends are now either citizens or permanent residents there, but most of them moved over in the late 80's or early 90's... they are a VERY smart bunch but perhaps it was easier then??

Bottom line is "My House-My Rules"
If you don't qualify, don't sneek in here.

But the idiots in both political parties are going to give them amnesty and let them stay. So we can get a whole new crop of 30 million more undermining pay scales and the standard of living.

But Corporations are People and they want cheep labor so it doesn't matter what people want.

Well if this image is accurate, then that's one hell of a complicated system. I wonder how it compares to other countries...
