I want to live in America

I know it has it's problems but it has a lot going for it. Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. So how do I go about becoming an American citizen?

Give enormous sums of money to the Clinton Slush Fund Foundation

If enough of us go we could set up our own gang. The Hillmans has a nice ring to it.

Too much work to even google it? Marriage does not bestow citizenship but MAY qualify for a green card. Look it up!

You can't become a US citizen unless you have first lived there legally for 5+ years. So you have to get a green card before you can live there legally. As someone who has lived there for several years I would advise against it. There are better places to live.

They do routine check ups on you to ensure you're actually married - regular home visits, correspondence address being used , evidence that you are not scamming the system. I know an american man who married a Chilean woman friend to get her card and he said the entire thing was an almighty pain in the bollocks for years.
