Thread: Nationality and Discrimination?

    Have a nice day

    This is a very hard question but I guess instead of looking at nationality FBI investigation should be given a priority in each case on individual bases. Pasha

    If one country's citizens commit 23% fraud, and another country's citizens commit 2% fraud..

    who's citizens do you think should be treated better and have less of a hassle when coming here?

    Remember, the IS has limited resources. They shuffle their inspectors around when certain countries start commiting more fraud cases (as like what happened when Argentina had their economic crisis).

    btw: If you're in the US, *all* cases are treated EQUALLY. No matter where you came from. A person from UK and a person from mexico fill out the exact same forms, and go through the exact same process and wait the exact same time.

    Outside, every consulate's procedures are different -- fine-tuned to handle the applications and needs of people in that area. So you can't compare two consulates because they have different needs and environments.

    Surely BCIS scrutinizes some countries more than others?

    truthfully....whatver i wrote before...i wish it came true but will not happen in practical way...there is no such thing like equality between nations and do wanna see the proof ?

    "Visa Waiver Program" for certain nations.

    Can you imagine a Visa Waiver Program with Mexico? Oh god, all hell would break loose!

    No, it shouldn't. What should matter are factors such as the skills and education the immigrants brings, his/her knowledge of English, and, to a lesser extent, any family ties he or she has in the U.S.

    And Gluhbirne, you may be interested to know that Mexico is the single country sending the most legal immigrants to the US in any year, and for most of the past 15 years (U.S. Statistical Abstract). Hispanics and Asians EACH comprise over 40 percent of legal immigration. Mexico is certainly not underrepresented in U.S. immigration and its citizens shouldn't get special consideration in immigration just because it happens to border us to the south.

    While legal immigration in the U.S. does not discriminate against country of origin (with a notable exception since 9/11 for "certain" nationals of "certain" countries), it does indeed discriminate on the basis of education, contribution, occupation and investment (as well as obvious close family ties). By this, I am talking about those who are highly educated or highly skilled, who can obtain non-immigrant visas, or those who invest in the U.S. by opening new companies or subsidiaries. In this sense, yes U.S. immigration laws are easier for those with advanced degrees, extraordinary ability and lots of investment money than for unskilled labor and just plain regular folks.
