I bet you’ve never really thought about what it could look like to cross a border, let alone the entire country of the United States? If you are reading this, chances are you are someone born in America who’s thinking about crossing over there. Now, you might not even consider making that move, but that’s completely normal.
When we are born in America, we were immediately surrounded by these things: our friends, family, government, law enforcement, the military, and other people with power. Being a citizen of a new and unknown country presents a bit of a problem: what are we most likely to get ourselves into? The answers: we get into trouble.
Just crossing the border of the U.S. is very different from crossing a border anywhere else In the U.S., there are two main lines of international citizens: those who want to work here and others that may be going to work abroad, but not citizens of the United States. When you are crossing a border, you might get a ticket and pay a fine, but you are not a U.S. citizen and you can return at any time.
Crossing over into the United States requires a pretty serious risk. The reason? There are a set of procedures in place for a simple situation like this, and when these procedures and the right tools are not present, that is when the bad stuff comes into play.
When you are crossing the border, you need to stay on the right side of the border. You can check your name when you get out of your bus or plane window, but you cannot check your US Visa in the scanner. You have to check in through a separate ticket window that is kept out of sight. I want to stay here with my family.
