  • Slight correction for the Indian boy whose dad petitioned for the green card: Yes, the wait time is ridiculously long for the family. But whats even worse is that when that kid turns 21, and still hasn't gotten his green card, he loses his dependent status and has to leave the country. He's got to figure out another way to come back to America and be with his family again. If he gets super lucky, he will get approval for his own greencard petiton but then he GOES TO THE BACK OF THE LINE. So essentially, someone who has grown up in America and has gone through the American education system, will not be able to immigrate into America because of the country caps. Family separation is real, even for legal immigrants.

  • Regarding the clip shown at 14:58 if you watch the whole clip twitter.com/NBCNews/status/1152233474176278531 Trump repeatedly tried to talk about how ISIS is gone (presumably because in Trump's view the US military defeated them and saved everyone), so I think "where are they now" referred not to the woman's family but to their murderers. It's still disgusting (arguably even worse), but in a somewhat different way: "Yeah, and now the people who killed your family are dead, thanks to 'Murica -- you're welcome".

  • Cracks me up seeing these folks wanting others to immigrate to the United States "legally"... as if their ancestors asked natives for permission to colonize North America. 🤦🏽‍♂️ And this goes back to my grandfather's days as a truck driver in the early 1900's having to deal with racism across America as a brown skinned Tejano. Despite him being of native origin and his family coming from native Texan roots he was treated as an unwelcomed foreigner. 😡 Yeah, how rich is that... being called a foreigner by ancestors of land squatters from the east who ILLEGALLY immigrated into Texas, a land already occupied by Tejano people... who Anglo immigrants would eventually betray and massacre out of racism and land theft. 😡

  • My family is Canadian, english speaking, white af, Christian, educated. Basically model immigrants for the USA. It still took us from November of 2016 when my parents moved to the USA through a work visa (I was here for a couple months prior on an F-1 student visa) and we submitted the Green card applications basically immediately. Until October of 2019 to get our green cards. Along the way they lost my passport photos twice, delayed the application long enough that we had to fill out new forms bc they changed them, and made us do a physical each year bc they only were valid for 12 months. And luckily this was all paid for by my dads work, but if we had to pay for it ourselves, FUCKING HELL it's expensive as FUUUUCK When Trump says he wants legal immigration, he's really saying that he only wants rich immigration. Because that process is not cheap by any means

    Taylor RathboneTaylor Rathbone2 ヶ月 前
    • @Vincent Giasullo Because of the process of assimilation that _all_ immigrants, legal and/or illegal, have to go through if they want to become full fledged citizens of this country. It is a slow and arduous process. To just keep letting people in, without first going through this process of adapting, familiarizing and settling into our culture and ideology, based on a foolish notion that we "have the room" is very disingenuous. Not only that, a tremendous increase of population would obviously increase our needs and consumption for more energy such as fossil fuels, natural resources such as food and clean water, infrastructure that would need to spread into farmlands and natural ecosystems with wildlife, ect. There is already over 300 million people in this country. That number is projected to increase to 400 million by 2050 and 600 million by the end the century. And that's if we do nothing. That's still keeping the restrictions on immigration that we have now. We're still going to have problems with an increase of population in this country even if we do nothing. So if we just start letting even more people in, legal and/or illegal, without first waiting until that group has properly assimilated and on the asinine assumption that we have the room and resources for it, is a glorious absence of sophistication on one's part. That's why.

  • It’s a challenge for a rich country to balance immigration. You know by default most people trying to come in have educational levels below that of average Americans. They may not speak the language and religious and/or cultural aspects may limit how they progress. So why would the rich country want to allow immigration that is most certainly resulting in dependence? Rich and educated people? They will make it anywhere, that’s low risk for dependence. In light of the number of poor people in America, many of which are immigrants (aka minorities), it would make little sense to add to that pool thru immigration. Here in NYC, I see good immigrants and bad immigrants. You could say, if the states (aka NYS, PA, CT and so on) can not manage their immigrant populations and provide them with housing, education and jobs to be productive members of society, then the federal government has no choice but to limit the inflow of people. If states did a better job, immigrants would not be seen as a problem. So perhaps immigration rates should be directly linked to how well or badly immigrants perform once here. Then potential future immigrants would not blame the government but their own predecessors.

That people get education and professional experience in the US and then go to develop their own countries with that knowledge. :) Though, it's not as official as in some countries where you sign a paper promising to leave after the end of your studies. :)

  • So... I wanna start by saying I love this show and hope it never goes away. I have to disagree with you though at 3:55 where you say big or small countries are bound by the same numbers. Not really how percentage works. Let’s say Malta has 100 citizens, 7 of them per year could immigrate per what you said and let’s China has 1000 people in it, they get 70. It literally couldn’t be more fair. Now the rest of the process... it’s shit.

    Pearls Anne HeelsPearls Anne Heels3 ヶ月 前
    • Wait, you mistook what he said. He said that the immigration in the US was restricted to a max of 7% from each country. So if the US was taking in 100 immigrants, it could take no more than 7 from any country. If 1000 people from China want to immigrate, vs 10 in Malta, the Chinese would have to wait a lot longer for all of them to immigrate because of this country cap.

If you have any interest in an all ages comic about refugee resettlement matters, please check out my book on Amazon. Search "Little Fugee book" or author name "Melvin Otieno." I worked for the American refugee resettlement program for 3 years and created the book to shed more light on the program. Thanks for anyone who will check it out. I hope as many people as possible can get to read it.

The world would be better off if the best people from every country didn't always try to leave those places and instead helped raise up their homeland.

Then he screams about "more legal immigration" while his administration actively makes it harder and harder for anyone to try and immigrate. A liar, a hypocrite, a con man, a thief, the list just goes on and on.

  • I will just say ONE thing about the american immigration system: I'm a single 30 year old, citizen and resident of CANADA, with a permanent salaried job at a fortune 500 SILICON VALLEY GIANT. BOTH my parents are almost retired citizens of US who are likely in the top 10-15% in terms of how much money they make. My parents applied to sponsor me to come to the US, and it will take me at least another 10-15 YEARS to even get close. That's INSANE, on average for anyone in my position the next 10-15 years would bring SO MANY changes. Not to mention the fact that 30s is kinda the age where most ppl "settle down", would I really want to move in my 40s after that? And you know, let's not forget: 1. Me being in the US means one more person who will be able to support my parents as they get older so they are less of a burden on teh state 2. As John Oliver points out, this is family based migration, something Trump and a lot of his supporters seems to hate. And that's not even getting into how INSANE it is that the employment route is not the one i'm going for (believe me I tried, and Trumps changes have made it impossible), seeing as how as i said - I'm employed by a fortune500.
