American citizenship or being a citizen of Heaven

If you had a choice between being an American citizen or being a citizen of Heaven, which would you choose? For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; Philippians 3:20 I am choosing being a citizen of Heaven since Obama and his team is taking America straight to world citizenship, and then straight to hell. Citizen of Heaven = Thumbs up Citizen of America ...more »

Easier to become a Citizen

Regarding the current illegal immigration issues, part of the problem lies in the required processes to become a United States citizen. It requires too much money (especially if the person in question does not speak English). Perhaps an easier and faster process could be put in place. I once read a quote that said something along the lines of "When we needed immigrants, we welcomed them into our country. When we didn't, ...more »

Employment Based Immigration - Increase visa numbers

Can you believe that if I as an employer want to recruit a foreign national (after a few months of unsuccessful recruiting effort to find ANY US citizens for the position), for a very critical position, it takes me 19 years to bring that person on board in Green Card? Many of these highly skilled individuals are not ready for the "uncertainty" we invite them into in terms of "temporary visa's". So I am forced to wait ...more »

Equal Opportunity for LEGAL Employment Based Immigrants

Country Quotas for LEGAL Employment Based Immigration are Discriminatory and Unconstitutional. This will help businesses and the economy by making legal immigrants want to live here, buy houses, spend and generally boost the economy instead of being constantly afraid of 10 year waits, inability to switch jobs etc. As of last count there are more than half a million pending immigration applications! Waits are more ...more »

The Tree of Obama

"You will know a tree by it's fruit." Matthew 7:16 The Obama Tree is a black Oak. The leaves protect the tree from the light of truth. The bark is hard and callus to prevent transparency. The fruit is the ACORN, to reproduce itself again and again. The roots of deception go deep into the American soil. By David Craig Mastrianni © 2009 Toalterorabolish.com Please help me report any copying of the ...more »

Employment Based Immigration - Remove Country Quota

The original purpose of "country quota" was to support diversity in USA, mainly for family based immigration. The quota doesn't make sense for employment based immigration. EB immigration is to support economic growth of US, and to decrease the shortage of specific skills. So if the special skill is concentrated on one country, you might need more people from that country to decrease the shortage on that skill. Current ...more »

Immigration

Review the current interview process for immigrants abroad. Currently the decision to grant or deny a visa rests solely with the immigration officer conducting the interview. The denial is often times based on opinion not fact. This leaves the applicant and the beneficiary very little options on how to defend the denial if they don't have a specific reason for the denial.

Equal Opportunity Employment Based Immigration - No country quotas

The current sorry state of affairs of Employment Based Immigrations favors people from countries other than India and China. If a company needs a particular individual for a particular position (Employment Based Immigration is for people and companies who could not find an American to do a particular job), it does not matter if that person is from India or China or somewhere else. Counrty quotas in Employment Based Immigration ...more »

Staple a green card to every advanced degree awarded in the US

The US has made a *huge* investment in my education: I have both a Master's and most of a PhD from good US institutions, and neither has cost me a cent due to receiving fellowships and working as a research assistant. The US has therefore invested something like a quarter of a million dollars in me, only to send me home after my degree (because the F1 student visa is of "nonimmigrant intent"). After paying for me to ...more »
