There are many countries where becoming an immigrant is difficult, even if you have money. The United States, on the other hand, makes it easy to become a resident and gain citizenship.
Most people choose to spend their lives living in America because of freedom and opportunity. These two things make America unique among other countries, along with the fact that it is one of two countries in which you can become a citizen at birth. The other country is Canada.
If you are willing to invest the time and effort into becoming an immigrant in America, there are many ways to do so. A person can come on a fiancée visa or through family sponsorships. They can invest money in the country and become citizens through government programs like EB-5, or they can come to work at American companies with current H1B visas.
1. Immigrants can start businesses more efficiently – and for less money
I’ve seen immigrants open businesses without needing as much startup capital as a company located inside the U.S. would require, and sometimes with none at all. This is because many services are far cheaper for U.S. citizens than they are for immigrants.
2. Immigrants can become employees of businesses more efficiently – and without passing an exam
Immigrant entrepreneurs I met went from being employed by someone else to having their own companies, usually with a single client, in just six months.
3. Immigrants have access to non-union workers – and it’s easier to stiff them
U.S. citizens can only work for businesses with which they have a contract. To get around this, immigrants select employees from the pool of non-union workers. If you don’t like their performance at all – or if you feel like firing them without worrying about payouts – that’s fine. They’re not unionized, so you don’t have to go through any legal hoops to get rid of them or pay out their notice period.
4. Immigrants can become U.S. citizens in three years
There’s no requirement that a new American pass a history exam before becoming a citizen. Given the state of education abroad, this is a great way to get intelligent people to move to the U.S.
5. Immigrants can become Americans without taking a history or citizenship exam – and they don’t need to be proficient in English
If you’re living legally inside the USA, you don’t need to pass an English test – all you have to do is fill out some paperwork, take the Oath of Allegiance, and that’s it. You’re a citizen.
In conclusion, I’d have to say that for me as an immigrant entrepreneur, America is the best place in which to live and work. The United States has many things that other countries do not: democracy, zero income tax, freedom of speech – and now, thanks to the Internet, a place where intelligent and ambitious people from all around the world can come and build businesses.
