It Sucks to be an immigrant

I have had a similar experience with immigration and have to agree with Glenn Reynolds on this point:

"We have the worst of all worlds in our current immigration system -- it's demeaning, unpredictable, and contemptuous toward would-be legal immigrants, while being porous toward illegals. And it's the main experience most foreigners have of dealing with the United States government. When my Nigerian sister-in-law, before she married my brother, passed her citizenship test, my brother said he was glad that the person who swore her in was so nice, because it was the first time in the entire process that the process wasn't run by a jerk. This is a mess, and the Bush Administration isn't fixing it. It should."

But instead of the word "jerk", wouldn't "asshat" more suffice? Just asking.

Couldn't be more agree. And the US is not the only example where being an immigrant sucks. I had to live something alike here in Canada.

Where we are supposedly all brothers and sister till you get to the citizenship application. They charge you huge taxes for being resident, now becoming a citizen might be a major loss in th tax income. Why is it our fault?

Thats when an impossible citizenship arises. You build a test not even native Canadians can pass without tons of study! that force you to buy trainings and free questions, packages and all. It's just so unfair! here you can only take it once, and if you fail you have 40% chances it gets rejected by a stuck up judge.

I'm agree with yah Yves! But not all is lost, there are a lot fo resources to get through a test like the Canadian or the US one. Is not such a hard work you know?
