Hello,

I'm from Brazil. A few days ago me and some friends of mine were discussing about how immigrants were treated in the US and Canada. The main opinion is that latinos have difficulty to socialize with natives.

I didn't buy it, actually. I'd like to hear from you, if you guys would become friends of a brazilian, or a latino guy, or even date a latina, heheh.

Thank you very much!

I love immigrants, America is almost entirely composed of families that were once immigrants. I have major issues with illegal immigrants.

I'll be friends with most anyone. Can't say that for some people here in America though.
But yeah, make sure you get here legally. Can't say too many people have a tolerance for illegals.

We welcome immigrants with open arms here, despite what you might read on the internet. We just prefer you do it legally. After all, you don't want anyone in your house that you didn't invite in!

And from what I've seen, Latinos are usually pretty social and get along with pretty much everyone.

depends where in the nation honestly. Anti-illegal sentiment in some parts makes people unfriendly towards any non-english speaking peoples. Most places welcome anyone from latin america
also, you're Brazilian and you speak Portuguese. if you come to america you WILL get women. no exceptions.

Legal immigrants are good. I love those. My family was once German immigrants, who came here legally before WWI. Not so enthusiastic about illegal immigrants...

I'm American, and I'm all for people that want to come here to try and have a better life. However, I have major issues with those who want to come to this country illegally. If I were to go to some countries as an illegal immigrant, I'd be killed were I found. While that approach is wrong, I don't think deportation is. Or at least giving them the option of becoming legal or leaving. There's a civil way to do it...

And I've seen quite a few sexy Latinas I wouldn't mind dating, and by dating I mean screwing, and by screwing, I mean having sexual relations with them....and by that, I mean showing them my pokmanz....

I think immigrants are fine. Just if you come in illegally at least attempt to learn English.
Also i think if too many come from their shithole country that they will make our country a shit hole too, thats all.

If you can speak English, I've got nothing against you, my friend.

If not, I'm not going to talk to you most likely since I don't know any other languages presently, so we couldn't understand each other, but we're still cool.

illegal immigrants who come to america looking for a steady job to support their families should be helped along the LEGAL immigration process, because more hard-working people in a country is never a bad thing.

illegal immigrants who come to america looking to smuggle drugs and put innocent lives at risk should be deported and bludgeoned with squirrels until they realize the error of their ways.

not necessarily. though it's definitely not ALL the illegal immigrants doing it, Arizona and other Southwestern states are having major problems with illegal drug cartels and rampant street crime by illegal immigrants. the whole "show me your papers" law goes a bit far, imo, but it is true that something should be done to crack down on smugglers.

this is somewhat surprising considering im an immigrant (legal of course). i honestly say people should focus less on the actual immigration problem and more on the whole crime caused by it. after all, not all of us are rampaging idiots.

Legal immigrants pay taxes. Illegal ones not so much.

Both of my cousins got into car accidents with illegal immigrants, and in both cases it was the immigrants' fault. I'm not saying they're bad drivers, that part's irrelevant, but neither of them had any insurance. Because these people were breaking all these laws, my cousins lost their asses on repairs and premium increases. If they were legal, they would have had licenses and insurance and there would be no problem.

Legal immigrants I think are great, because America was founded by immigrants and it's great to have so many cultures in one country. I have issues with illegal immigrants, for a few reasons. It's one thing to want to make life better for yourself, but I live in a region with many, many illegals, and several of them break the law several times, but don't get deported. If you are going to be here, I think you need to abide by the laws. Also, a lot of them suck at driving, which is dangerous. And I know America does not have an official language, but I think they should learn English within 5 years of being here (Teddy Roosevelt said that as well). English may not be the official language, but it is by and far the most spoken, and if they are going to come here to work, they have to be able to communicate, especially in jobs like factories where communication is vital for safety. I don't think we should treat illegals like other countries, but we give them benefits like welfare, healthcare, a job, etc., which could be used for people who are citizens here. We half to think of overpopulation as well

I'm really moderate on immigration, there are bonuses to having it but it needs to be better regulated than it is (and the Arizona law is not the way to do it)

This country was founded on immigrants, and we have done so well by stealing other country's smart/hardworking people. But currently, the US immigration hoops are ****ing retarded, and will only hurt us.

Solution:

-Increase immigration quotas significantly
-increase speed of process


In effect, anyone working in this country should be documented and paying taxes, and the system should be able to accommodate anyone who wants to work in America.

I use to have a Brazilian roommate. My parents were involved in an exchange student program, and they had him live with me. He was cool as shit.


But nah i don't have a problem with immigrants, as long as they're here legally.

Immigrants are great as long as they don't immigrate illegally. But I do however have a problem with immigrants constantly demanding changes in our laws and custums to accomodate them after all their countries would never consider accomodating us.
