I just read in the Asian Journal that 45,570 Filipinos made America their home last year. That is the third largest group ... It makes me angry how hard all of us must work to get our Filipina GF/Fiancee/Wife here and do things the proper way when I see a steady stream of illegal Mexicans coming across the border.

Or they come here for to have an anchor baby so that they become an instant citizen. That law needs to change.

It's a shame because so many of you out there have Philippine relatives that deserve to be here too.

Medical Exams – A caller explained that the civil surgeon who completed the medical exam used the wrong form and then wanted to charge an indigent refugee to reprocess the paperwork on the correct form. What recourse does an applicant have if this occurs?

USCIS Response: Customers should notify the Director of their local office when they have a complaint about a civil surgeon.

I agree with you completely, if only the US Embassy would relax about issuing visas to Filipinos. They happen to be one of the most hard-working people in America.

You are someone that can be persuaded but not directed.  I may try to influence you to see things my way but there won't be many occasions with I'll be obstinate with you - Jim

It's not the embassy, it is how Congress wrote the law.

What I hear is they WERE pretty relaxed in Visas in the older days and many just went under the radar and stayed beyond the Visa dates. Thats no excuse for illegals from mexico abusing the sysytem so highly too, but it has gotten better I read somewhere. Its a prickly subject for many unfortunately, and no easy remedy in the near future..

I think they should move camp Pendleton. Put all the Marines from camp Pendleton along the border with orders to shoot anyone coming across without a visa. No more illegal's, good training for the Marines. Problem solved.

On the contrary, I think they should make the Philippines the 51st State of the Union.

Sounds like an excellent plan to me.
The United States–Mexico border is the international border between the ... The border's total length is 3169 km (1,969 mi)
181,221 enlisted marines, not counting civilians.
Thats more than enough to decimate any number trying to sneak across. Heck 10 marines per mile could do the job and they would think they've been given a Holiday.

Or bring home the troops securing other nations' border to secure our own. But that's another topic. :rolleyes:

The whole part of being civilized is being able to control one's emotions when someone says something that they dont like.
