re: I don’t remember ever seeing a president signing autographs after a SOTU address - ewdij on 2/5/19 at 9:42 pm
President signing autograph after the SOTU speech, especially signing the program of the event, is very common. If anything, he signed a lot less this year....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: I had a dream last night that LSU was up 22-9 at halftime against Bama - ewdij on 11/1/18 at 2:15 pm
I also had a dream about the halftime score. Bama leading 22-21. But the last LSU touchdown was a pick-6 with a long return as the half expired....

re: Another example of “diversity and inclusion” equaling discrimination against white men - ewdij on 7/20/18 at 1:48 am
[quote] "diversity" ALWAYS means: fewer whites, fewer men, fewer Christians. ALWAYS. [/quote] That is because of math. Right now white male Christian are a majority. Increasing racial and ethnic diversity means the percentage of people of color must go up. If their percentage of the nation...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (5)
re: How does one legally become a U.S. Citizen? - ewdij on 6/28/18 at 8:04 am
[quote]It’s really not that difficult. Asians do it all the time. I’m not sure why Mexicans have so much trouble[/quote] This is a misleading statement. Within the different types of green cards that you can apply for (employment based or family based), there are country quotas. So while some Asi...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: H-1B Visa Crackdown - ewdij on 5/13/18 at 12:23 am
[quote]I voted Trump in order to crackdown on immigration. Trump doing work[/quote] I find this amusingly ironic. You live in a country built on immigration - sometimes voluntary, sometimes forced, sometimes legal, sometimes illegal. Yet you want to stop immigration. You didn't make any disti...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (7)
re: H-1B Visa Crackdown - ewdij on 5/13/18 at 12:13 am
Wouldn't change a thing. You can pay an H1B worker the same salary as you would to an US citizen, but ask them to work twice as much. Most H1B workers will (unhappily) oblige as their choice is to either suck it up or leave USA. I am from India. You can't even imagine how much social prestige workin...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: H-1B Visa Crackdown - ewdij on 5/13/18 at 12:04 am
I am currently working here in USA on a H1B visa and know a good bit about how it is used. I have been on an H1B visa since 2010. I don't work in the industry, but I am a college professor and teach computer science and hence am intimately aware of how H1B is being used/missused in the industry. The...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: DACA is officially over. - ewdij on 3/5/18 at 6:39 pm

re: DACA is officially over. - ewdij on 3/5/18 at 6:35 pm
Very common misconception that comes over and over again in DACA discussions. There is virtually no process for them to get a legal status. You will often hear the saying "they should get in line". Problem is there is no line that they can get into....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)
re: Why should illegal immigrants have a faster path to citizenship than legal ones? - ewdij on 1/26/18 at 7:48 am

re: Why should illegal immigrants have a faster path to citizenship than legal ones? - ewdij on 1/25/18 at 11:17 pm
[quote]How long does it take to gain legal citizenship? [/quote] Depends on a lot of things. In fact, the question that you're asking is not the right question. The right question is how long does it take to gain permanent residency (green card). Once you have a green card, you can apply for ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Can Dreamers become US citizens or not? - ewdij on 1/17/18 at 7:45 pm
There is actually a way for DACA kids to get citizenship ([link=(https://citizenpath.com/daca-green-card-advance-parole/)]LINK[/link]). But it is very risky to go that route. So very few people avail of that. So for all practical purposes, there is no route for permanent residency (green card) or...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)
re: How does giving foreign students scholarships to our universities benefit us? - ewdij on 11/20/17 at 8:48 pm
I am assuming you are asking this question in the context of the tax reform bill.... Well foreign students don't usually get scholarships that frequently, what they get is tuition waiver, if and only if they get a teaching/research/graduate assistantship. Here is the main reason why universities ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
