IMMIGRATION: The More You Know!
Updated: May 30, 2019
Immigrating to America is a long, expensive, and tedious process. Which is why most poors' need not apply. Here's what you need to know...
Those who come to America legally fit into four broad categories:
1) Family-sponsored = 68%
2) Employment-based = 12%
3) Refugees = 10%
4) Other = 10%
And as you can see, at 68%, immigrants coming here through family or marriage is by far the biggest group. After that are those coming here to work or as refugees. It should also be mentioned that the U.S. has annual limits on how many immigrants can come from each of these categories, as well as limits on how many people can come from different countries.
Now what Trump calls “chain migration”, is merely the legal use of the immigration system to bring your family to the United States. That said, obviously every system is open to a certain level of abuse, and there are some problems.
But despite stories you may hear on Fox News, there is NO evidence that our current immigration system is being widely abused to the detriment of our country as a whole (more on that later).
Now the number of undocumented immigrants currently living in America has changed over the years, as people have come and gone, but it’s estimated that the number is roughly 11.3 million. Thus altogether, legal immigrants make-up roughly 14% of the total U.S. population, while undocumented immigrants make-up a mere 3%.
Moving on to the refugee system: a refugee is someone who flees their home country out of a reasonable fear of persecution because of their race, nationality, religion, political views, or social group.
And FYI to all white people, any refugee can LEGALLY apply for asylum status under U.S? and international law, even if they are already in the United States or at the border! However first refugees must go through the most thorough vetting process in the world! Don’t believe me?
Check it, here’s the rigorous FOUR step process:
1. Register + Interview + screening with the UN High Commission for refugees (UNHCR). Of those granted refugee status, less than 1% immigrate to the U.S. So if you’re a terrorist wanting to infiltrate America, with absolutely no history of crime or connections to terrorism, you’re still over 99% more likely to be settled somewhere other than America! And because we’re America, we get to pick the strongest candidates. It’s like we get the best immigrant draft picks every year! We legit get to basically draft the best colored people from across the world! White people used to be all about that!!
2. Anyway, those less than 1% are still on average 18-24 months from resettlement (and some cases take significantly longer), because they must now go through a series of separate and intense security interviews and biometric screening by all of these agencies… SEPARATELY! I MEAN JUST THE PAPERWORK!?
The National Counterterrorism Center
The FBI Terrorist screening center
U.S. Customs and border protection national targeting center
3. Now if they pass all of these checks (which by the way are even more intense for people coming from countries like Iran, Iraq, or Syria), they must then pass an intense medical screening —because if a disease is gonna get into America it’s gonna be home grown dagnabbit!
4. Then they go through "Cultural orientation”, which I imagine is simply watching the Disney/Pixar movie that best corresponds with your race?
Asia = Mulan
Middle East = Aladdin
South America = Coco
Caribbean = Moana
White people = High School Musical = Because screw you!
Native Americans = Pocahontas
But of course, we always leave the best for black people, who get to watch “Song of the South", a gem from 1946 featuring a wise old black slave named Uncle Remus singing about how his life couldn’t get better while working on Massah's plantation!
Anyway, back on topic, upon successful immigration, working age refugees are expected to find a job within 6 months to prove that they won’t be a financial burden on the U.S.
And before we move on, let’s quickly acknowledge that much of the violence and persecution that refugees are fleeing across the world — particularly in Central America, South America, and the Middle East — was at best partially caused by American drug usage and foreign policy blunders.
Ok background is DONE, and I don’t know about you, but I think I killed it!
