and the same goes if her mom decides to accompany her there on a tourist visa to get her settled.Joy used to have a Canadian visa but didn't get it renewed when she decided not to take the job. So she may or may not be able to accompany her there.
a lot of the stuff on their immigration site is routine:
I went through a lot of this when I adopted my sons (one of whom was a teenager at the time, but over 12 so needed more screening)
and when I moved here to the Philippines as a long term visitor, I came into the country easily (you can get a visa for two weeks on the plane) but to stay longer you need the same documents. (I have a permanent residency here now, but that took a couple of years, even though I was a spouse of a "Balikbayan", a returning citizen).
To visit the USA, our relatives visiting other relatives in Chicago go through this all the time.
You need police clearances, a proof you have money, be healthy, someone to sponsor you when you arrive, and you have to convince them you won't overstay your visa.
and guess what? Canada might not accept your passport:
Study visas also have similar requirements.
minor children have similar requirements: and they need paper work that there is a responsible adult to care for them and from their parents agreeing to this.
again we see this little proviso:
all of this is routine, you know. Americans are lucky: For a lot of countries you just have to show your passport and fill a paper out to visit for a short time. But the dirty little secret is that most countries have similar requirements for visitors who are at high risk to overstay their visas, or for long term stays.
no we do not live in a borderless world, although you wouldn't know it from the hysteria in the press
so my question is if Trumpie boy is Hitler building walls, or is he just trying to shut down scofflaws and enforce immigration laws?
Sounds like he is overdoing it, but if you recognize his pattern, he goes full blast and then will compromise.
and if Trumpie is Hitler, does that mean Trudeau is Hitler minime?
