I know a few illegal immigrants in my neighborhood who are Nigerians. One particular lady introduced my wife to the party life. Now my wife has gone astray and parties every weekend. I have decided to call ICE on her and her family this weekend.

Bring up facts, I am not here to blow my trumpet.

The only thing sustaining UK is sports, education (foreign students money), IELTs and stolen funds from African and Middle-East countries by stupid corrupt African leaders, if not, UK would have died a natural death or facing extreme recession like Greece by now.

Finding work in UK is difficult if you aren't a Nurse, Doctor, etc or be ready to do odd jobs.

Whites work as cleaner at Heathrow airport, it can't happen in USA. Such jobs are done by Mexicans and illegals from South America and few Africans, but due to rising unemployment in UK, white British citizens also do odd jobs because their nation is dying natural death!!

you are not 100 % correct on this one

hahahahahaha, I can't apply for UK visa in the first place, when I can comfortably work in lol

I just hate UK for the wicked things they did in Nigeria; almagamating Southern Nigeria with blood-sucking, backward Northern Nigeria.

This is what they did in most black African nations; join enemies as one nation, which gave rise to civil wars and corruption and tribalism in black African nations and still they back these corrupt African leaders by welcoming their families in UK and harboring their stolen wealth from black African nations.

UK deserve more terrorist invasion than USA. All those terrorists were supposed to focus more on UK instead of empathetic, passionate USA kiss

U.K is far better and I challenge you to argue this with me...

1. Non discriminating...

2. Racism is almost non existent


3.No gun violence and considerably safer to live

4.Better healthcare with their amazing NHS.

5. Better welfare for citizens..

6. Easier to integrate and lots more..

7.Better currency power.

Don't even need to read further....the two points you raised are simply false.

The greatest country is where your basic requirements are met. To some, America is the dream country. To others, it is a nightmare. As bad as Afghanistan is, some people will not want to leave it for anywhere else.

I’m a USA citizen but I love Canada with all my heart. I always visit Canada whenever the opportunity arises and I’m always sad to go back home to US.

USA may be the greatest country in the world based on power and economy and tech etc but greatness also depends on how living there makes you feel and I love the feeling Canada evokes in me.

USA is great for my pocket and for that I’ll give it my loyalty because I love money very much. That’s the honest truth in my experience.

Key word = How many times

The fact that he drew his conclusion based on a jaundiced premise makes it a Fallacy of slippery lope.

Its like this:

If Americans had not invented internet, then no one would have invented internet, then we would not have internet... and there would be no Nairaland

How, and in what sense is it "the greatest country on earth"? Obviously, you don't live in USA, and you've not been to any other country. Trump himself says that the infrastructure in other countries makes America look like a 3rd world country.

Wait.

OP is saying "don't move to the US illegally"

Some of you guys are accusing him/her of "blocking road" against others. Are you guys okay at all?

I've not left Nigeria for an extended period but I certainly know that living illegally anywhere is not advisable. It's basically just leaving one set of problems for another: a pointless venture, if you ask me.

I get that the country is hard and looks hopeless but don't trade one set of problems for a different, more complicated problem with further-reaching consequences.

In summary, you just agreed with all of us that America is the greatest country on earth today!

Military might
Economy
Number of billionaires
Science innovation
Technology innovation
Number of biggest & richest companies
Most humane (I am sure u and many people condemning or trying to cast America got into US via free American DV visa lottery program for all which no other nation on earth have done or dared to do)


After America comes other nations. They worked for it. Everybody knows the truth that America is number 1 nation.

Canada is just upcoming with lots of empty lands and low population reason you feel at peace there cos competition is low, and income is low too in Canada compared to US.

USA give opportunity to all; legal or illegal.

It is only in US that an illegal migrant can end up becoming very financially free without involving in illegal businesses like drug peddling, prostitution and what have you.

Try it in Europe or Canada, and you will die of hunger if you are illegal that refuse to do illegal businesses to earn a living.

But in US, illegals can do odd legal jobs and still live large if they are hardworking and ready to work.


Nobody should dare compare US with Canada or stupid UK

whatever you do in life, politics controls it, so if u want to be super great, u must consider politics and play politics.

My political nature comes from family background, and because I know one can't do without politics if u aspire to be at the topmost top in life.

My interest in life bothers around finance/money, technology/ICT, politics and romance, then others.

I am a programmer from childhood. I code too. I develop apps. I code for fun, and I write too.

I can never disclose my domains or sites cos I have so many spies and enemies here due to my blunt political views and criticisms against the barbaric government of Buhari and APC!

I have had several attacks, so don't ask for further details from me.

I have worked with Russian programmers, I have few Israeli friends who are also coders, so I couldn't argue Fiverr cos Israelis are as great as US, and if they exist for another 100yrs, they will join US and China, maybe with Biafra too wink

Salford is more than 150% real and right..there is no country you can compare with America..thats a fact.It is so because of the flexibility of opportunities it offers to every one regardless of your academic background so long as you really think like a human being.US encourages all kinds of venture reason Mexicans,eastern Europeans,Africans who do not even have high school education succeed because there are no restrictions to small start up retail shops..so many Nigerians back home done even know that there are road side vulcanizers in New York,road side welders,kabu kabu blowing whistle for you with "Heysss are you going?...with people selling candys and cookies in the subways..with people coming out on the streets with their truck loaded with coconut ans selling to passer by..with guys hawking soda and water on the highway of NYC just like lagos...

you cant try that in Canada,you need to first be educated in Canada...everything regulated with govt policies ...small street businesses are not encouraged...

what America stands for is why it is called living the American dream...there is no country that is easy to succeed other than America with or without papers.

by the way i am also a Canadian citizen.

I write from my New York City perspective. This is more for those who are planning on living here illegally. Do not do it... don't jump out of the frying pan and into the fire. Not discouragement.... but enlightenment. Don't count on people to help you...it is a dog eat dog situation. Sooo many opportunities would not be available to you.... for jobs... for housing... for transportation and for certain medical attention... you will have to pay out of pocket.
Today ICE is making sweeps to arrest illegal immigrants. The thing is... wherever they swoop down... they will drag not only their target... but everyone else around to check their status ...then off to the overcrowded detention centers.
Continued...actually...I did not even know I posted the above!

The fear I see while doing my rounds is alarming. People are soooo az fraid of ICE.... they been opening their doors for me at first knock...but now I have to convince them that I am who Insaid I am. If someone wants to host you.... their fear would be what if ICE raids and have them hauled in for harbouring an illegal? The situation is tense here. I know it is worse in other States where the residents are generally supportive of kicking out illegals. It is not surprising that we no longer hear much from those who always advise to stay away from Black areas... settle in White areas. Since Trump.... those people have been silent.
All the above... is just about fear.... fear because one is not legal.

It's a pity that those who are stuck here ... trapped... do not share their experiences... nor tell others of their pitfalls. Somehow... I have the feeling that misery loves company.

On vacation I'm not....status changed. For me.... to begin with... I was pressured to come by family members resident here. Feeding...clothing... housing... all transportation.... going to interviews... etc..... I had tremendous support. ...but that was my circumstances ...I didn't even have to look... my landing was well prepared.... all I needed to do was leap. What is your circumstances?...is your landing prepared? That's what this is all about.
My advice to anyone...visit first... before making a decision. You will see things from a wider perspective ... and be in a position to make good decisions.




stop putting fear on peoples mind if it doesn't work for you does not mean it we not work for another person, my friend have been staying in New Jersey with his family illegally for 3yrs now and his son is schooling their too why this lie?

I’m not arguing with you about the might of America. You didn’t have to go into that long post to tell me something I already know.

Yet I’m telling you I love Canada on a more emotional level. You know that patriotism is also a feeling and that’s a feeling USA doesn’t evoke very much. (At least for me). And that’s the only area I love Canada more for.

Personally I’m just glad I can benefit from the USA and still experience Canada as often as I can when work allows.
