Datingish had this article on their site recently. My answer to this story was “Call Immigration. Problem solved.”
I found it quite humorous that someone actually took exception to it. Someone thought I was just horrible for not “understanding the situation”. For those of you who haven’t read the article here is a synopsis:
Girl doesn’t love her boyfriend.
Girl is too chicken to tell him.
Girl has cheated on him.
He has been abusive to her pet.
He sleeps in her car.
He doesn’t work.
He has threatened suicide if she breaks up with him.
He is in the United States ILLEGALLY.
Alright, this young woman has done nothing morally correct in her situation with this man. She has broken the law by harboring an illegal immigrant into the country. She has done nothing but be dishonest and lie throughout the entire situation. He on the only hand seems to prove that he is mentally unstable with his animal abuse and threats of suicide.
Why would you NOT call immigration?
There is a very long and detailed process to get someone into this country through immigration. It requires tons of paperwork and around $2,000 to get an immigrant into this country and that is IF they are family. You have to show you can support these immigrants by living above the poverty level. The process takes at least 2 years to finalize and that is for family. This does not include everyday people in other countries who just want to change their lives.
The people who want into the country have to have medical examinations. They have to prove their intentions. They have to wait an undetermined amount of time to be approved, and yet this guy sneaks his way into the country, he’s obviously mentally unstable, and people argue that his illegal immigration status is not the “problem”. While I agree that the original poster has a problem with lying and dishonesty, in my opinion, the best thing she can do to remedy this situation is report him. Report him before he hurts someone who is here legally and who has a right to be here.
If you were sure you knew an illegal immigrant would you report that person?
