It is sad that our immigration policy is so restricted they have to consider illegal crossing (which bars them from free travel back and forth so they're stuck in the US if they cross successfully).
I bought a car from a older man who migrated here from Belarus in the early 90's. He owns a couple small businesses around town. Anyways, he was excited that his brother had finally secured paperwork to migrate to the USA legally. He had been waiting 12 YEARS on it.
