What are guys talking about? We are very immigrant friendly. We have very porous borders and now we are about to give amnesty to at least 20 millions of illegal aliens.
You should have tried to quietly sneak in your GF stateside on a sailboat.

Update to the saga. I arrived in North Carolina from Nassau, Bahamas. Like the upstanding citizen I am I called CBP to check in. They told me they were closed on weekends and would come down to the boat on Monday. LOL

Tell them you won't be there Monday. It is a religious thing, Monday is the day that is sacred to your people and you don't hold business activity on Mondays. Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday are all taken, sacred to Two, Wotan, and Thor, and of course, Friday is a Moslem holy day, then there's the Sabbath of Abraham, so maybe they'd better some back on Sunday, unless that interferes with their plans, in which case, they can just send you a post card?

That is sad to hear. They have cracked down on entry to the US, unless you sneak across the border from Mexico. Then they give you health care and a welfare check.
