Not necessarily *all* muslims.But the ones who engaged in marriage fraud in order to gain admission to the US...no citizenship...and no residency.
You're saying that none of the Iraqis that put their asses on the line, put their own families in grave risk by acting as interpreters for US troops should have been given asylum?
I understand that there have been at least a few such people...and maybe more than a few.Those people....*assuming that they've never violated US law*...just might be worthy of receiving asylum.
Your saying that no muslim, no matter what he has done for this country should allowed to become a US citizen?
I'm saying that any muslim who's engaged in marriage fraud to gain entry into this country is suspect....*very* suspect...IMO.Regardless of what he/she might have done for this country.No citizenship...no residency....for any such muslim.Or for any such person.
I agree that if someone uses a sham marriage to gain access, they should ordinarily be deported. I just think that in this case, the statute of limitations should have LONG since expired. On top of that, I think he’s since proven his love and dedication to this country by going to war for it. Nothing sets off alarm bells for me, the fake marriage just shows he wanted to become an American at all costs. Is that the right way to go about things? No, but I think he has more than made up for it.
Did he engage in Marriage Fraud?????
(c) Marriage fraud
Any individual who knowingly enters into a marriage for the purpose of evading any provision of the immigration laws shall be imprisoned for not more than 5 years, or fined not more than $250,000, or both.
Do you have any idea how often “sham” marraige is used to gain residency in this country????
Run of the mill visa abuse happens all the time all over the place with all kinds of people from all over the world. And it is definitely an immigration enforcement issue to be sure... but if you going to lie awake at night considering everyone who gain entry into this country through a “sham” marriage as a terrorist, you’d be wide awake all the time.
Enjoyed your postings on this thread. Bookmarked for later...
