Also how would the shut down affect immigration? Both those in the process of becoming an American citizen and those who are here illegally? The reason I ask this is because a good friend of mine is currently in the States illegally. He married an American citizen and they have a child together and he is currently in the process of gaining American citizenship. He knows as part of the process he has to return to his country (El Salvador) and re enter the states legally although he has been here for 10 years when he came with his parents. He is planning on returning to El Salvador within the next month but will the Government shutdown affect him leaving and re-entering the states? Will the process of him gaining citizenship be suspended or affected at all? I will choose best answer.
Also in response to those who assumed all illegals here are here for welfare. He is not here to get welfare nor is he on welfare. He has a job and he works 6 days a week. His parents brought him here to get him away from the violent situation in their country. One of the most dangerous gangs in the world is from there country. Their family is not doing anything wrong by being here. They have jobs so they do pay taxes because the taxes are taken out of their paychecks. I asked this question not for people to judge them but because if he cannot get his citizenship he will have to return to his country and leave his wife and child behind. So don’t act like you know their situation just answer the question please.
He should leave the U.S. by LAND in a similar fashion as how he came here. This avoids any ‘paper trail’ showing his presence in the US which will put the kabosh on getting residency.
He should be talking with people in the Salvadoran community to find someone who travels by land between the US and Mexico or the US and El Salvador/other country south of border. He can catch a ride with them and find a way to pass through immigration/customs and get to the other side without a paper trail.
This is the best way.
As for the "welfare" train – well, no one illegal cannot collect welfare. They can however, get free baby delivery in hospitals (as at least 3 of my illegal friends did ) and their child gets Medicaid. Overpopulation in Latin America is the primary reason why illegals are coming to the United States – too many people, sh*t economies, not enough jobs. My husband is one of 14 and they were unable to raise them all with good nurturing or education – 3 are illiterate – very sad. The church here discourages birth control (I live in El Salvador and saw it with my own eyes when a ‘brother’ on a local Catholic mission told the ladies not to take the pill. And I’ve only been to 6 masses here).
The same Republicans who do NOT want illegals in the U.S. also do NOT want funding for Family Planning sent to foreign countries. So which one do you want? Hordes of illegals coming across the border, or a bit of ‘distasteful’ Family Planning funding? Pick one!
Here’s a partial Solution to overpopulation worldwide: FREE BIRTH CONTROL FOR EVERYONE!!!
Thanks for listening, questioner, and heed my warnings about "by land" and not by plane.
Second is how hard should it be to enter our country or become a citizen. Should we be able to allow anyone to become a citizen or make it harder with less people becoming citizens?
