I looked into moving out of the US. I needed a degree in a skill they needed, a plan as to what I was going to do, and money to support myself for a certain amount of time. Fucking crazy that we don't require the same.

We do... just not for mexicans and "favorite" groups. when my parents came in to the US in the 90s they required: proof of degree, proof of need for the US, a sponsor to the US (Back then, you needed someone to PAY for you to stay), a job, proof of income, offer letter for company, proof of company location. Overall, you needed to be REALLY special to move in, especially as a white family, and that shit was not cheap...

Several years ago I looked into moving to Australia and Canada for something different. Sure enough, you need to have work lined up. I got approved but said fuck it. These days I'm glad I didn't move.

why didn’t you just tell them you were a ‘syrian refugee’ - even better an unaccompanied minor while you were at it... free gibs and permanent amnesty for any crime you might commit...

Ha, I wish. This was before this refugee fiasco.

Wow, ireland is actually in my top 3. Apparently I have distant relatives there that came to the states to visit a few years back. Sadly, I don't have a college degree, and the skills I possess are of the non-essential type.
