5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

How was that for you guys that already ended your journey and are already in US, what problems did you guys faced?

At your job place, was the language barrier a big problem to, sometimes, expose clearly what you were thinking at a certain moment?

The place that you Immigrated to did you ever fell not being equally treated?

In addition do we, immigrants, permanent residents, have the same rights under the constitution as a US citizen has?

No you don't. You have a lot, but not all.

Travel and living outside USA is the biggest one, a US Citizen can live outside of USA as long as he wants and can always come back to USA.

Work and living in the USA, you can have both of those taken away from your if you are LPR and commit a felony.

Well, lots of different experiences depending on who you are, I don't know if anything is generalizable...

I'm a native english speaker anyway so no real problems there.

Living in the Bay Area - lots of immigrants at all levels of society here - again haven't noticed anything amiss at all, schools, jobs etc all seem very accepting.

I'm sure it would be different in certain parts of the country...

It is very much a matter of where you live. Here in southern California as a native USC I feel like a foreigner because so many other languages are spoken. In my home town back east if you aren't WASP ( white Anglo-Saxon protestant ) you had best not move in as you will never be welcome. An immigrant has much the same rights except in voting, serving jury duty and you must maintain to residence. You are also restricted from some benefits until you have been here 5 years.


This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.

I guess you speak Portuguese, Spanish would be a better bet.

Language can be confusing, I knew many of the oddities but even now something will come up.


“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”
