    I, too, am an immigrant to the U.S. I have lived in my adopted country for two years now. I must say that the immigration process has had its ups and downs, including being detained for four hours at LAX and then for an hour at EWR. On one occasion, the U.S. Embassy in Canberra had screwed up my visa paperwork (they let me in anyway, after making me sweat for a few hours) and then in January this year, I was detained for an hour for no particular reason, no one told me why I was detained, but it apparently took them an hour to stamp my passport and let me back in the country (I was a conditional resident at the time). I am now a permanent resident with a full Green Card, so hopefully I will be able to clear U.S. Immigration a bit more easily in future. I suppose the saving grace of the I.N.S. is that they are mean to everyone equally, whilst Australian immigration is more discriminating in who they are mean to (Oz immigration gives me the impression that 'if you're white, you're right!').

    I like my adopted country and I love Washington, D.C. I am told that I have almost thoroughly lost my Australian accent and now 'talk like a yank'. It didn't take too much adjustment changing from Australia to the U.S. Just small things. I intend to apply for U.S. Citizenship as soon as I am eligible.

    Incidentally, Katamarino, I can't believe you are telling me that there are no universities of Cambridge-standard in Kiwiland. Massey? Vic? Orklund? ... OK, I believe you now.

    AS for me, I was born in a little village in South INdia. I was taken via a bullock cart to the hospital at midnight.
    Four years later, I moved to the USA. I like it here, hell, I love it here! Fantastic country, but I sometimes miss home, so we go back every summer. I'm never completly disconnected with either country.

    I donít know if would really be considered a foreigner. I was born in the US, but I did live in Canada for many years. I moved back to the US about three years ago.

    As nations, the US and Canada are similar for the most part and there isnít that much adjustment if one moved from one place to the other. NYC, where I live, is totally different, on the other hand, and did take some getting used to.

    I really like it here and almost all my experiences have been positive.

    Reason i am here is to study, i go to Cambridge Uni as theres nowhere anywhere near its standard back home! Its not a bad country, but much much too dirty, built up and crowded for my liking. 20 times the people in a little bit less than 1 times the space - crowded! Dangerous obsession with football too

    started a topic Foreigners in the U.S

    Foreigners in the U.S

    Who of you are people from other countries and now live in the United States???

    I'm one!!!

    Just look at my signature.

    And, if you want, tell your experience ever since you came.

    Personally, I love St. Louis, it's a really, really nice town. Going to college has allowed me to interact with a lot of people from a lot of places and it's just amazing.

    I've been here for 2 1/2 years and I expect to become a civil engineer with a Structural Engineering concentration.
