11 VISA-A citizen of a foreign country, wishing to enter the U.S., generally must first obtain a visa, either anonimmigrant visa for temporary stayimmigrant visa for permanent residence. Visa applicants will need to apply overseas, at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate, generally in their country of permanent residence. The type of visa you must have is defined by immigration law, and relates to the purpose of your travel. A visa allows a foreign citizen to travel to the United States port-of entry, and request permission of the U.S. immigration inspector to enter the U.S. Issuance of a visa does not guarantee entry to the United States. The CBP Officer at the port-of-entry determines whether you can be admitted and decides how long you can stay for any particular visit.
12 Illegal AliensFYI:The vast majority work in low-skill, low-wage jobs.More than ½ work in construction, manufacturing or leisure and hospitality.By increasing the labor supply between 1980 and 2000, immigration reduced the average annual earnings of U.S.-born men by an estimated $1,700, or roughly 4 percent. • The reduction in earnings occurs regardless of whether the immigrants are legal or illegal, permanent or temporary. It is the presence of additional workers that reduces wages, not their legal status.-Illegal Aliens-Illegal non-citizenNot supposed to be here-can not do anything legally in the U.S.can’t vote, hold office, workcan be deported if found-The process of being expelled from a nation-why would someone come here if they would be an illegal alien???Job opportunities, better life, money, family…Nearly 13 million in US!
