states immigration question
« on: February 12, 2012, 09:56:20 am »
I am very curious... how long one must stay in the states illegally after his tourist visa expires to become a legal citizen..

Lets say a mexican gets into the states and hides his ass illegally for 10 years.. and get caught.. what happens? I mean the states is the only life he knows. or 5 years?

Well, the US government is periodically moronic enough to allow amnesties to legalise  millions of illegals ,every few years, which just makes things worse.  US immigration should, imo, allow increased legal immigration(only the educated) but clamp down very heavily on illegal immigration.

The aboriginals (Indians, Mauris) found out what happens when you don't put the blocks to immigrants, right out of the gate.

Try to be nice by feeding the dumbass airheaded Puritans who'd been run out of their own country, basically, and guess what happens. The camel takes over the tent.

There is no automatic time limit after which an expired visa turns into a naturalization certificate.

First of all, Mexico-to-USA border crossings do not need to be initiated with a tourist visa. The expired-tourist-visa method is more commonly used by illegal immigrants coming from non-contiguous regions. But, your question deserves an answer, so...

If a non-USA citizen gets "caught" as an illegal alien, they are subject to deportation. This even applies to people who were raised in the US since infancy, speak only English, know only the US as home, etc. There are no sweeping dragnets, but one way to get "caught" is to violate a law and get arrested, in which case a background check will indicate non-citizen status. Another way to get "caught" is by using forged documents, such as social security card or driver's license.

So, when are you coming?

Depends, what is the advantage in being there illegally? LOL
