I moved to the US from Australia (legally), when I arrived I was not allowed to work - so I didn't. I couldn't open a bank account - so I didn't.
I couldn't get a drivers licence - so I didn't drive. Initally it was not easy but then again no one said it would be.
It would have been much easier to just drive anyway without insurance, get a fake social and open an account and get a job that paid cash in hand. Or maybe just pop out a kid and use that as an excuse to get a free ride without worrying about how I was going to be able to raise it.
Yet illegals do this on a daily basis like it's an entitlement!
The complete lack of integrity these people show is reason enough they should be sent packing.
These are merely my observations from living in Phoenix.

I'm with America in saying 'Adios' to illegals!

Welcome to America! I applaud your desire to actually be a functioning member of our society. It's folks like yourself and my ancesters that have made and continue to make America what it is today.

Welcome to the USA and I feel we are lucky to have gained someone such as yourself.
My wife is from Thailand and like you couldn't get a drivers licence, be added to my bank accounts for 6 months... But we did it by the numbers, we didnt cheat.
Now she works, drives, and has her own savings account..
Like you she feels insulted by the illegals and what they demand.
I honestly hope that your life in the USA is all that you dreamed it would be.

A true immigrant!! I never think of illegals as immigrants. I've not been on this forum very long, I salute you and your values. I know there are many of you out there and you are welcomed. Illegals, that is a whole other story.

Very interesting post indeed, could you share with us the entire process you had to go through to legally immigrate to America, the more details you can give us the better.

Maybe some people will think it better and decide to follow your example

Love and Light
