  • It really is absurd that we classify people so strictly by accident of their birth.

  • Why does he make it sound like it is hard to get it? He let his green card expire, well buddy that one is on you, wtf. After you become a green card holder, 5 years after that you apply for citizenship and year after you become a citizen. As simple as that!

    • @Yenifer Dimas I went through the same process, so did my brother, mom and dad, and now my wife. Sure it takes a year but it is not that bad at all. Just make sure to follow the guidelines.

    • It's not that easy! My mom applied to get her green card renewed a whole year before it expired and it still expired before the paperwork was processed :(! The whole process is pretty painful and it consists of a lot of waiting for paperwork to get processed.

    • Both of my kids are quadruple citizens. When I was younger and more optimistic, I hoped for a world where one could relocate freely to the country where they wanted to live, work, study. Since that hasn't happened (and, quite frankly, we are moving in the opposite direction), my wife and I decided to give our children as many options as possible for when they grow up. We are raising them to be open-minded and multilingual cosmopolitans, and they have 4 passports to make that official.

  • Considering the disregard for the UK he's displayed, whilst not being here (kinda like Connery and The SNP in Scotland), I find him to talk about the goings on in Britain in the same way these talk shows speak about US politics. Scripted soundbites by cunts unwilling/unable to speak objectively if it conflicts with their network agenda. Why not ask him about the EU project's evolution and why The UK left?
