Emigration to the US – Living in the land of opportunity
A picnic has never been the emigration to the US. For centuries, Europeans have been heading west; mostly to escape the harsh living conditions in their homeland. America, with its rags-romance and seemingly unlimited possibilities, was not just a place of longing, especially for Irish-Americans, Italians and Germans at risk of famine, but something of a life insurance policy.
It is not that dramatic today, at least for those wishing to emigrate from Europe, but even the newest generation of migrants does not have it easy. Now it is harsh immigration regulations and a strict bureaucracy that can make the dream of living in the US a troublesome walk through the instances. For anyone who wants to emigrate to the United States, one thing is clear: The key to success lies in the careful preparation of the project. And: The US is picky. Whoever has a criminal past or is deeply in debt, will, to put it mildly, have a little harder with his immigration than anyone else.
