  •  Are you saying that (0+ / 0-)

    immigration law is not the easiest?

    It's mostly just filling out forms and charging a small fortune for doing so.

    •  Just filling out forms? (0+ / 0-)

      Being an "IT professional," of course, is mainly just learning how one particular application program works.

      I'm the top expert on a difficult kind of administrative appeal. My cases are very complex. And for what it's worth, I never represent corporations. I fired all of my corporate clients years ago.  I only represent families.

      I've taken your measure before. You see the entire world through the prism of your individual job difficulties. And you're nasty in insulting anybody who bothers to point out your constant inflammatory errors.

      You may claim to be a Democrat, but you sure don't act like one when it comes to immigration policy. It is a towering contradiction.

      Oh, and fuck off with your cheap little insult. You'd never be able to do what I do professionally, but I could easily do what you do. I taught myself to program in several computer languages and I designed a blindingly fast recursive Internet-based database application from scratch back in 1996, as a hobby on the side while also doing my law practice.

      And as for the "filling out forms" part of immigration law, I could explain why your understanding is incredibly shallow. But why bother?

      •  I'll have you know that (0+ / 0-)

        I successfully filed immigration papers for my family members, two adult siblings and retired parents WITHOUT a lawyer.  It involved forms and fees, nothing else.  It was not complicated at all.

        So Yes, I CAN do what you do professionally!

        By the way, when you resort to profanity and ranting, you look like a fool!

        •  But that's not what I do professionally. (0+ / 0-)

          You can't read.

          And here you are, the great opponent of immigration, who is himself a hotbed of family immigration. Rich irony.

          I see cases every week where people get arrested, deported, and otherwise horribly inconvenienced because they made boneheaded mistakes on immigration forms. Just because you got lucky on some simply family cases doesn't mean shit. It really doesn't.

          •  There is a difference between (0+ / 0-)

            making a mistake on a form and perpetrating immigration fraud by lying.

            I doubt that a "mistake" on a simple form would get someone arrested.  You are not fooling anyone. It's no wonder people hate lawyers so much.

            Some lawyers get rapists out of jail and feel good about it.

            •  You're just silly. (0+ / 0-)

              You don't know what you don't know.

              You think a "mistake" on a "simple" form can't get anybody arrested. Oh, you are such a total fool. It can indeed get the cuffs thrown on at the interview, followed by a strip search, imprisonment, terrible mistreatment, forcible deportation in chains from the United States, and a PERMANENT bar on re-entry, if they conclude you have attempted a misrepresentation to gain an immigration benefit.

              That happens ALL THE TIME, which is why immigration is slowing, since the United States has basically become a police state. For instance, the question on the I-485 about the J-1 foreign residence requirement. I suppose you think you know all about that. Fool!

              In some cities, such as Atlanta, that happens ALL THE TIME.

              But you're such a fool, you don't want to know reality, you just want to grind your little ax.

              And since you're obviously a foreigner who is immigrating family members to the United States, your diatribes against foreigners have a very foul stink.

              •  I don't believe you.. (0+ / 0-)

                Are you the immigration attorney for drug dealers and child molesters trying to scam the system or bring in child brides for prostitution by lying on the forms?  

                I DO NOT BELIEVE that a simple typo can causes "...cuffs thrown on at the interview, followed by a strip search, imprisonment, terrible mistreatment, forcible deportation in chains from the United States, and a PERMANENT bar on re-entry."

                You would have to provide proof of this.  Immigration Officers are trained to separate lies, inconsistencies and false documentations and false marriages from typos and are just doing their jobs.

                Remember, I have seen these forms and they CLEARLY state that you can be imprisoned for providing false information.  Some people believe that if you get an attorney to fill out the form, for a few thousand dollars, you are then exempt from the truth requirement.  

                I know the scam Tim. One attorney wanted to charge $10,000 to do what I did myself.

                I have nothing against orderly family immigration.  My sibling's visa took over thirteen years if I remember correctly and we did not complain or try to cheat the line.

                Employment based visa programs, on the other hand, are exploitive and is a totally different matter, and is very bad for the country because of the near master/slave relationship the visa confers and the resulting displacement of U.S. workerforce.

                There is absolutely no inconsistency in my position.

        •  Hey twerp, (0+ / 0-)

          fuck off with the troll rating after I responded to a guy who said I was a crook making money "off the backs of immigrants."

          If you need an answer to your job troubles, look in the mirror instead of blaming others.
