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]

(U.S.) Immigration for Dummies

I'd like to have a better understanding of the history of immigration in the United States, the U.S.'s current immigration policies, and proposals for reform. I'd prefer recommendations for books on the subject, but am open to other forms of information. In particular, I'd love 2 or 3 books that present competing views on the subject - from liberal and conservative viewpoints, insofar as there is a clear ideological divide on the subject. Bonus for books that provide some narrative regarding the experience of illegal immigrants across socioeconomic classes, geographic area in the U.S., and age ranges (kids and adults). Thanks!

But I'm white and educated!

A friend from the Eastern European country I grew up in asked if I would sign and submit an invitation so she can get a tourist visa to the U.S., where I reside. She intends to look for illegal work when she gets here. My immediate reaction was "No way!" with a few expletives thrown in, but I don't want to hurt her feelings when I crush her hopes.

My German-citizen best friend and I have been talking about him emigrating to the US for a few years now, and now that he's about to graduate from college, we're getting serious about it.

Seeking a Canadian immigration lawyer with experience in self-employed immigration.

I'm looking for a lawyer who gives consultations over the phone, as I'm not in Canada at the moment. I have some very specific questions concerning self-employed immigration and a few other things (self-employed being the top priority though), so I'd like to find someone who is willing to answer questions as opposed to plugging my data into their questionnaire for a "chance assessment." I don't care where in Canada the lawyer is located, as long as they are versed in federal immigration procedures. Do you guys happen to know anyone like that?

Can I Move To The UK on $50,000 Per Year?

What are the prospects for a retired American with a gross annual income of $50,000 to relocate in the UK? (Not London or other large city.) Living without a car would be in the mix. I've lived in the UK and wonder if I could make it on that income. Is it sufficient? Could I convince the immigration folks to let me in? Not planning anything imminent. But it woud be nice to rule it in or out as an option.
