In many cases, the tens of thousands of Argentines who came here without visas failed to return home after their 90-day authorized stay ended.
That’s what Spinelli and his family did a decade ago. They entered as visitors without visas and instead of leaving after their authorized stay ended, they stayed illegally in South Florida— joined the ranks of 12 million undocumented immigrants.

The bad economy doesn't deter them. The government handouts more than make up for any lack of jobs.

Are you kidding? These people come here with BOATLOADS of CASH...and buy up property in Florida, NO ONE CARES...the realtors make it easy for them. Who knows where these people from South America got all their CASH....but they are buying up all kinds of property in Miami, send their kids up to go to school in the United States, and live in the condos, or houses...Then, apparently, if you own enough property, and invest boatloads of cash into the US, it is much easier to become a legal citizen...

At least these people are not stealing jobs...ha ha...

The filthy rich are able to buy visas and come legally - and make Florida the new playground for the Latin American oligarchs as their own countries fall apart. They take their jewels and money and run. Of course they need their illegal servants.

Gotta love it! As a Canadian who winters in Florida and owns property there; after presentation of Canadian passports, title and proof of insurance to car, we get those questions and sometimes a secondary inspection that goes like this:

Your destination while in the U.S.?
Do you own this property? "Yes"
"How much money are you bringing in with you?" This to determine if we are going to be a burden on your welfare system I guess.
Duration of your stay?
Did you win a lottery? Yep, they've actually asked us this twice!
Are you bringing in a computer/laptop? "Yes"
Have you filed/paid income taxes in Canada? Yes
Do you own or rent property in Canada? Yes
Which country do you derive the bulk of your income from? Canada
Do you have bank accounts in the U.S.? Yes
How much do you sustain in those accounts? $******

Usually at this juncture the fellow in the kiosk has already made his decision to either allow us to continue or "pull over there for secondary inspection and report to the desk inside with this slip"

Whereupon we will be asked to provide "proof" of home ownership in Canada via current utility bills, property tax receipts etc., proof of bank accounts in Canada via passbooks or current printout of transaction with balance, proof of income tax on income earned in Canada and also the passbooks or current printout's of our balances in our U.S. accounts.

Should we not be able to satisfy what we have come to understand is their priority in establishing that we, as verified Canadian citizens, are not earning any income through interest on accounts held in the U.S. or through U.S. investments in the amounts that would necessitate the filing of an IRS report, we could then be liable for attachement of our Canadian pension earnings.

The focus is on the availling ourselves of any evasion of applicable taxes.

These are all reasonable concerns for another country to have and we fully understand how this would be of concern. BUT given the hoards of illegals, that not only enter, but also are able to avail themselves of a host of very costly benefits to you taxpayers with no meaningful attempt by Washington to evict them; it seems oxymoronic in the extreme to attach as much import to the scrutiny given retired Canadians that arrive in your country with one thing in mind, that of spending their retirement income in your country, while at the same time ignoring 12 million or more lillegals all with their hands in your pocket!

Could the answer to this be; we are not potential future voters?

Bingo! Nor are you potential “slaves” for the filthy rich, who own the politicians and dictate policy. If you fall into one of those categories, you’re home free. Otherwise, you can expect to be scrutinized.

Well guess that will put to rest the claims by the pro-illegals that only "brown" Hispanics get questioned by border personnel or internal LE officers.

Anyone who has crossed both borders anytime recently knows that the northern border is much much tougher. All it takes to cross the southern border is a laser visa that you swipe like you do at a parking garage and they can easily be purchased on the streets. If you don't want to do that, there are holes in the fence you can simply walk through.

Sounds like it. You are a positive force to the economy. As a Floridian,
I know tourism is our #1 industry, and I welcome you with open arms.

The illegals are welcome to leave, because they are criminals.
