Why are people so against having to come to America and actually having to work for citizenship?
I keep seeing people disliking answers that people give, like actually applying for citizenship! Whats wrong with that?? All Americans are immigrants but we worked hard to become part of this country! So please tell me what the problem is with not breaking the law?

Becca, the reason why people come to the US illegally is that it is almost impossible for someone without formal training to enter legally. It depends on winning a lottery, where millions of people apply, and less then 100 000 are allowed in, with many more spots going to people in parts of the world not found in the... More
