Recently i was at the immigration center in detriot to conclude application process for a relative, to my amazement all other nationalities, e.g europeans, Asians and Arabs were busy with relative's application process, my question is that why is it that Nigerians in America with unconditional greencard or U.S citizen dont sponsor relatives apart from wives and husbands? is it that they dont have brothers and sisters to assist what about cousins and uncles??
Or is it that they wanna remain the star in the family, who is often looked upon as the becon of hope? What can we do to change this, i might understand the financial side, but what about asking your relative (the intending migrant) to come up wit the application fees, which is about $1000
India, mexico and phillipines are examples of countries who live on fund transfer from hard working families. Why can we emulate them and ease the pressure on the govt. especially since the govt. are confused about the state of our economy. It baffles me that Nigerians in the U.S who have the ability to file for their relatives to come here and live as Greencard holders will prefer to send them invitation for a visit visa knowing that the chance of them gettin the visa will be very slim and if they do eventually get it they wont have the ability to work, and end up livin here illegally doing or sort of illegal things. We need to change our mindset and start doing right! At first i am tempted to think they arent aware, but it is boldly made known to them when they become unconditional greencard holders or U.S citizens. As a U.S citizen you are allowed to file for a primary applicant a yr and that includes the applicants wives and kids if any. Is it an act of wickedness that make them ignore those at home?, why wont you want their relatives to live the good life especially if they are known to be hard working?
