Visiting and then (maybe) living in Singapore

There are a few things I'd like to try to work out in advance though... [more inside]

Can you fill in the blanks for me on this 19th century US citizenship law?

I recall reading somewhere about a 19th century American law whereby a child born in the US would be a citizen only if the father was a citizen and the child was male. It applied either to all non-whites or to only asians. I can't seem to find this anywhere. . . probably because I can barely remember the details! Does this ring a bell for anyone?

Don't deport her!

How long can EU citizens stay in the United States per year?  My girlfriend would like to stay with me for two-three months, then return home to work for a month, come back to the US for a couple months, etc. Will homeland security break up this arrangement after a while? Is there a limit to how many days per year she can stay in the US?  To be clear, she won't be working here.

Advice or Experiences with UK Immigration?

I am a Canadian that has been living in America for 8 years as a permanent resident. I currently live with my English boyfriend, who is here on an L1 visa (which is being transferred over to an H1B). We are in the process of getting my paperwork together so that he can sponsor me as a common-law unmarried partner to move to England. As I've done this before (Canada to America) I do know that one of the best ways to get some insight into the underbelly of immigration is to ask people who have been through it. [more inside]

Can I move to Canada if my boyfriend is offered a job there?

My boyfriend was recently laid-off from his job in a competitive industry where companies are concentrated in certain areas -- he can't find another job in the industry just anywhere. He is looking for a new job in the industry. We (both US citizens) plan to go together to whatever place he finds a job, and there are a good number of opportunities in Canada (relatively speaking), so we are trying to decide if he should apply for jobs there. If he were hired by a Canadian company, would I be able to move with him there, and work after a certain amount of time? [more inside]

I'm guessing the answer isn't "practice".

Help me understand what seems like a contradiction: News stories I read seem to depict there being quite a lot of immigration into EU countries, and attendant unrest over cultural factors. But while a lot of people I know say they would love to move to Europe, the few who've actually done research into it seem to indicate that it's nearly impossible to get in unless you're wealthy or in a select few professions. How do middle and lower class people actually immigrate to Europe? [more inside]
