Who's at Fault?
The brides, the men, the INS, the address seller... Whose to blame for all this? Don't be simpleminded and say "It's those immoral women," "It's those sexist men," "It's those bumbling bureaucrats," "It's those greedy capitalists," because each individual person is only doing what you could expect- taking actions in their own best interest. The real fault in my opinion must ultimately lie at the INS's door step. The INS created the address selling industry. Without the INS making it impossible to immigrate honestly and incredibly easy to immigrate on a marriage visa, the whole industry would disappear. In the meanwhile, potential address buyers must protect themselves- don't get started! Now that you know what will happen you have only yourself to blame if your mail-order bride disappears after three months.
Wake up! The INS would like to invite every pretty girl in the world to the US! The only requirement to find an unsuspecting citizen who not only has been swindled by address sellers, but now will be raked over coals by the INS.
If this pretty girl can convince the citizen to marry her, she immediately can have virtually all the benefits of US citizenship.
You may think, "But how? This can't be! The 2 year waiting period will save us!" Oh, no my dear readers, the INS doesn't enforce the waiting period.
And the poor US citizen? He has in for him potential punishments that make the penalties for murder look like a birthday party. His only hope is that he INS will be equally ineffective in enforcing the law against the citizen as they are against the illegal alien. AND THE US CITIZEN BROKE NO MORAL LAW! AND THE ILLEGAL ALIEN IS THE CRIMINAL! I mean if we have laws against cocaine to protect us from ourselves, why is there nothing to protect the consumer from the address sellers?
Write your congressman, and find out what is being done to protect you! Do address sellers warn you of the enormous potential punishments from the INS should your mail order bride ditch you? Does the INS really want to have unlimited immigration for pretty foreign girls? The fiancee visa/marriage entry visa must be eliminated in favor of a change of status visa. The use of the fiancee visa and marriage visa for illegal aliens entry is unacceptable. Let legal immigrants come to the US on their own merits, NOT ON THE WEIGHT OF THEIR LIES!
