Would You Accept A U.S. Green Card?

Tue Mar 21, 2006 10:25 pm

Anyone else besides me definitely not wanting to become a legal resident in the U.S.? Would you be accepting an invitation for a monetary compensation then?

Careful what you say around here, some people take their patriotic duties a little far on this site.

As for me, I don't really need one. I'm Canadian so getting in and out of the US is relatively painless.

I would gladly accept it if it meant I could keep my Canadian citizenship as well. I'd really like to be able to live and work in the US hassle free, I'm bloody sick to the death of this shitty climate in Canada. Canadians please spare me the "but that's what being Canadian is all about, hardyness and toughness to live in a cold climate blah blah". If being a proud Canadian means being miserable for 8 months out of the year then no thanks. I'll live elsewhere for the winter.

No. I'm one, and a happy one at that. I would also become a citizen if I didn't have to give up my European nationalities.

If you live here (as a tourist or investor?) and pay taxes you might as well make the most of it. I can't complain at the couple thousand dollars I get each semester for college.

A lot of these posts give the impression you can pick up a green card in a box of cereal. I don't know how the rules work now (I had a green card 30 years ago, surrendered it when I left) but I doubt that it's easy getting a green card, simply because it allows you to live and work legally in the U.S. for an indefinite period, and ultimately apply for citizenship.

This is true. I should have been more clear, for the field that I want to get into, working in America is more profitable than working in Canada as well. That's my main reason for saying that I'll accept the Green Card, the weather and taxes are just bonuses.

Not easy at all. I'm in the process of getting my permanent green card now. Here is the timeline:


  • April 26, 2003 - Married a US Citizen
  • Late June, 2003 (yes, I procrastinated) - Apply for Change of Status. Student to Resident Alien
  • Mid July, 2003 - Received my Work Permit
  • June 3, 2004 - Received my Temporary Green Card
  • June 3, 2006 - Temporary Green Card expires, need to apply for permanent before that time (can apply any time within the 90 days prior)
  • June 3, 2007 - Eligible to apply for US Citizenship (once again, can apply 90 days prior)


We did everything ourselves (why feed the lawyers? It's easy enough to do yourself if you have some common sense and can take instructions), and spent probably about $800-1000 by the time I receive my Permanent Green Card. With that, I can do everything an American can, except vote and hold certain jobs (like Police in most states). Once I become a US citizen, I can do everything, except run for president.

I feel qualified to "bash" the US, or rather to express my opinions of it, having lived here for over ten years. Living in the US is different than living in Canada. Societal leanings are very different, even for two countries that are ostensibly so similar. For some people, the US is great. It has given me and Mr. Harlot excellent opportunities but it is not the place that I want to live forever. The political situation and the tendency to move to the right are disturbing to me. It will be hard to leave my friends here, but we will move back to Canada, because that is where we belong, and I want to give something back to the country that made me who I am.

I can understand that there is a backlash toward the US because I've always felt it myself. We can be polite about expressing our opinions about it though.

Well well, Banco, "definitely not wanting to become a legal resident in the U.S." sounds like "I can't stand that place and ten elephants couldn't drag me over there".

I considered applying for a Green Card to "have it in my pocket", but that thing simply expires too quickly if you don't really make use of it.

Okay, I'll say this, I grew up in a house where my dad is a business man, my mom's side of the family is entirely unionized teachers and principals. My dad is Conservative, as am I and my sister, my mom is a recent convert to the Conservatives. But my grandfather and aunts will bash the US until the cows come home, and then go on vacation there for months, buying tons of products. I think a good deal of my family makes them feel superior and 'more Canadian' when they bash the US.

As for university, I found that there was a ton of US bashing going on, but then I found the Ontario Campus Conservatives, that has put me into contact with many more Conservatives on campus, I just never knew they were there.

I'll take your opinion though, and I hope it's true, it's just not what I have experienced, but who knows, maybe I've just been immersed in US bashers lately, which is entirely possible.

Its interesting reading the comments, and fairly easy to understand where most of them are coming from, but I'm curious what prompted the question (and seriously, just curious, no offense was taken). Green Cards aren't 'offered' to anyone, and as noted, require a fair amount of effort to get and maintain. Where you talking about residence in general?

I don't think they will as I think most Americans couldn't care less if someone didn't want to become a legal resident of the US. Living here isn't everyone's taste and if someone doesn't want to immigrate, their choice.

Quoting KaiGywer (Reply 37):

Marriage is very fast, and used to be faster in the early 80s when my parents got married. There were much fewer "fake" marriages back then. The regular application period is long. My mother applied for a green card for her brother when she became a citizen in 1986...it finalized in 1999. Of course I would think the wait time would be shorter for people who are citizens of Europe, but still long.

To those saying yes or no for a green card on quick judgement, many don't know that the process of getting one (other than marrying a US Citizen) is lonnnggg, and to go through the effort, you would really want to get one before even being offered one.

RE: Would You Accept A U.S. Green Card?

Wed Mar 22, 2006 9:10 am

Well think of it as an option, make a decision and then commit yourself to it instead of then thinking what if......
We had to take the option (had for for around 20 years) when things started to get rough for us myfamily). Its been really nice here in the US, but I intend to return if I can get into PIA.
I intend to consider taking up US citizenship if I can be a dual citizen. I need to look into that matter (anybody here knows anything about that?), but I recommend you at least think about what you would do after a few years when you have that option as well.

That may be true, but there's a lot more that goes with living in the US than lower taxes and warmer weather.

Care to expand on this?

Thanks but NO!

If I was resident in the United States, I'd have to give up too much of my personal freedoms that I have come to enjoy.

It would prohibit me from visiting my friends and that is something that I am simply not willing to do.

On the plus side.... gee, can't really think of any reason to live in the US.

Hmmm either all of your friends live in Cuba or you just simply have no clue of what a US Green Card is.
