    Has anyone here successfully immigrated to the USA?

    Without a fake marriage?

    If so, how did you manage it?
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    I was born here, but I believe in open borders.

    My ex-husband did, but the route he used has now been cut off. Like so many of the routes our parents and grandparents used. None of my ancestors could get in today the way they did at the time. Why, one of em just sailed up to the coast in a little boat called the Mayflower, not even so much as an income guarantee.

    Don't even consider a "fake marriage". Before you decide anything, make sure you visit an immigration lawyer to find out your options. People who make plans based on misconceptions about immigration law can seriously mess up the rest of their lives.

    My mom married my US citizen, Army soldier at the time, dad and he just brought her back. They are still together. Mom still is a foreign citizen, but that is entirely her conscious choice - nobody is hindering her.

    Totally. And I've seen a lot of people mess it up thinking they can do it themselves. It is WAAAAYYYY to important and unforgiving a process for that.

    And a lawyer knows stuff you have no hope of knowing. For example, I remember one time we had a document due the same day as a major filing deadline for a large group of people that didn't include us. Our lawyer told us that if we filed on that day it would just get lost and for that particular day the lawyers had been told to stay away and just bring their stuff the next day when everything was calmed down and it would still count as being on time.
