|The Strains Of Paradise And Illegal Immigrants In The United States (USA) by Ade3000yrs(m): 3:05am On Feb 14|
*The Strains of Paradise and Illegal Immigrants in the United State of America (USA).*
I wished you knew the cost of enjoying social infrastructure in Canada & the USA. Little do you know that the least cost of buying a home in the USA is btwn $20,000 USD in least remote town or district of a studio sized apartment and $700,000 USD in high profiled area depending on location which is a staggering equivalent sum of between #7,300,000 Naira and #255,500,000 Naira.
In some cases & places it is usually up to $3 million USD plus (#1,095,000,000 Naira). Be it in Michigan, Alaska, Texas, Tennessee, Mississippi, North Dakota & South Dakota, California, Florida, North & South Carolina, Alaska, Washington, New Mexico, Idaho etc. The minimum cost of an hotel per night is between $60 to $1,000 USD per night. In canada d least is btwn $200 to $2,000. As an immigrant on an 8hours scheduled odd job working time frame, as an immigrant in the USA earns btwn $8 to $12/hour depending on the vibe in where u work, which translates $12 x 8 hours x 30 days x #360 naira exchange rate per month is #1,036,800 & to really keep up you have to work to make up to twice that amount which is #2,073,600 naira with a possibility of 30% income tax goes down the drain & undocumented as an illegal alien which your employer don't often remit to the government on a ground of falsified Social Security Number (SSN) or Individual Taxpayers Identification Number (ITIN) which even when even remitted, you can never lay claims to tax refunds at retirement which literarily means your American dream becomes dashed after many ears as an immigrant. We have over 20 million illegal immigrants in the USA either evading tax on the path of the employer nepotism & corrupt hatched mindset or because u hv bn receiving your payment in cash or under the table aside all the molestation and dehumanizing treatment you are bound to get at work. It is the reason some stay with an employer till they day in d name of favouritism & been at the mercy of your employer. Be you on a W-2 or on a W-4 employment
Without ur SSN or ITIN, you cant get a decent job, you cant go to school, you cant have a drivers license, you cant file a petition, you cant have a health insurance, u cant board a flight, u cant go out for fear of coming across the NIS, U.S Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE), United State Border & Custom Protection & Border Protection (USCBP), united state citizenship & immigration services (USCIS), U.S Citizenship & Immigration services. You can hardly & confidently date a citizen having taking all d poo of companionship over the years & yet give you up as you risk deportation especially when your spouse is tired of your lies, excesses or sees you as a financial burden.
The truth is Most USA would most likely marry an illegal immigrant just to milk & enslave you as our fore fathers worked & laboured in their farms in those days. Most times what you get is relegated job, or you do hard labour, work in d restaurants full of illegal immigrants like yourself on the job, security jobs, general services, cleaners, farms with a lot of molesting & dehumanizing job
Another shocker is this, you can reside in the USA illegally & own real estates ventures & yet still get deported after 40 years. Alot of Nigerians & Illegal immigrants often tell you lies back home & cant stand the shame of coming back home empty.
Even if you survive d journey to naturalization after 15 years and ur found to hv evaded tax, you could spend the rest of your old age paying a tax you do not owe if you dont have strong attorney & if your tax return petition is rejected.
What is d point if u make a million naira in d USA & bulk of it goes back to d system in d name of tax? Property tax, sales tax, gasoline tax, everything you buy over there comes with his own kind of tax. The country is so conditioned that most of what you make stays in the country
Am not here to vilify the USA that it 100% a bad country but my emphasis is that there is more to the icing on the cake that meet the eyes. The over 79 USA embassies all over the world making over $700 billion USD annually from immigrants seeking visa to the USA
*Try listen to the American band named *Twenty one Pilot track: stressed out & the German band named Rammstein track: *America*
*Bottom line, why cant Nigerians who claimed they have made it in the USA Come home freely if they its true they are made in the land of liberty as claimed?*
The truth is that illegal immigrants make more money for the corrupt american business men & politicians without anybody giving a damn about blowing the whistle. Except you marry a citizen for your stay & compromise your marital vows back home in Africa, you would be left with only the option to labour away like a rat in the hole for good 15 years.
And I still reiterate my stance, The USA is by far more corrupt than Nigeria & most of the dangerously perceived corrupt & unsafe nations of the world today. *Dont get yourself too high on the American Hype and the American cocaine yet my brother* I blv in Nigeria & will continue to toil for d greater good of my country first before any other country. No matter what you do or say about the USA & the rest of developed nations of the world today, they will never abandon their domestic political & economic matters thereby making your country (Nigeria) national matters top on their priority list. *Home & abroad, only Nigerians can fix Nigeria*
