Undocumented Existence

Sometimes the Only Way. As should have become obvious by now to anyone reading the previous information about the preference system, those people not related to others legally in America or who don’t have the connections to obtain a job-related preference (or refugee or asylee status) have only one way to take up residence in the USA–illegally. Existence over the long-term as an illegal alien can cause many problems with employment, health care and social services. The INS arrests and deports more than a million illegal aliens each year. Sudden arrest and deportation can mean financial disaster.
