SO do you ask potential lovers for their green card before doing anything?

After all, even if they talk like an American, they might be a Canadian illegal....

Same here. I have before yes. I used to date a Russian Legal Immigrant. When I met her she had a terrible accent. I asked her if she was here legally or Illegally. She said legally so I said prove it.

No I would not. As a matter of fact I was actually put to the test about 6 years ago. A friend of mine is Married to a filipino. Her aunt is here illegally. They tried to hook me up with her. I met her, she was a nice enough person and later they told me she was here with an expired VISA. I politely excused myself and left their home. I called and reported her when I got home.
Needless to say they and I are no longer on each others speed dial.
No regrets, no sense of guilt. I did the right thing.

I wouldn't let it progress that far. If I felt that she was an immigrant I would verify as best I could her legal status.

no i would not. not because of the supposed criminality of the person, but rather because of the INSECURITY of living with a person that can be snatched up at any moment creates.

the life of an undocumented person is full of over the shoulder glances.

i wouldnt be able to deal with that psychologically.

i deal with enough looking over my shoulder for one household.

Did you find her aunt physically attractive enough that you would have dated her if she was in the U.S legally ?
