My husband is from England and did it the “legal” way. It took 5 years and thousands of dollars – along with several threats of deportation when paperwork didn’t come thru at the right time.
We live not far from “white trash” who have cars parked all over the place, never mow the lawn and speak something no one understands – and they don’t have to worry about being here “legally.” One family even tried to sell their 3 year old kid several years ago. It’s not the immigrants legal or otherwise, that are running the country into the ground. It’s ignorance.
