Anonymous asked you: Don’t cheat people out of their money.
No, you know what’s embarrassing??
That I was held back at customs for more than two fucking hours just because I was flying alone and I’m young and single. That the US custom agent who fucking interrogated me in a room looked me in the eyes and said “I can tell that you’re lying.”
That even though I am currently residing in the US on a legal six months permit I keep getting called an “illegal.” Illegal. Like if I were a crime.
What’s embarrassing is how fucking hard you americans try to keep us out of your country, that the waiting list to be even given the chance to be a legal resident is years long, that the immigration test is so hard not even americans pass it, that even though you’re supposed to have “no official language” there’s an English test to cross the border.
And did I mention that shit is fucking expensive? Do you have $765 to spare? Did you know that fee doesn’t guarantee you your residence in the country?
It’s embarrassing that I have to asks for donations because I can get permanently banned from the fucking country where my girlfriend lives if I try to get employed.
That if I do get employed, my boss will most likely take advantage of me and not pay me like a human being, not pay me the minimum wage or give me a health insurance because I wouldn’t be able to legally demand it.
What’s embarrassing is that I can’t get loans or financial aid or grants because I’m not a legal resident. That I can’t get most scholarships because I’m not a legal resident. That somehow collage is three times more expensive for me than it is for you because I’m not a legal resident.
That every news article I browse about immigrants is plagued with comments like “go back to your country” and “stop stealing our jobs” even though you know which fucking jobs we get? The hard ones. The unwanted ones. The ones you americans cannot deign yourself to do.
What’s embarrassing is that my fucking situation “bums you off”. Give me a fucking break.
That, anon, is fucking embarrassing. Fuck off.
