Re: chile's migration crisis

Well, I guess Pinera's strategy is to avoid civil unrest by the hundreds of thousands illegal immigrants by offering this regularization/amnesty, but then killing or at least severely limiting new immigration of people from undesirable countries.

Something that surprised me was the part of the article that says "Unlawful immigrants who arrived in the country before April 8 will be allowed to stay"


Huh? Did I miss something?

Re: renewing US passport by mail

I sent in a passport for renewal via dhl with a return awb. The website says 2-3 weeks to get the renewal. Does anyone have experience with mail in US passport renewals in terms of actual time it took to get it back?

Re: Uncle Intel: Immigration update ala Pinera

Well now it becomes more clear why Pinera was telling immigration to "clear their desks". With the new proposed immigration reform...its going to be difficult with all the people that are in tramite. People that applied for temporary in Jan/Feb/Mar... If the law passes quickly (like in days) I wond...

Re: chile's migration crisis

Re: Uncle Intel: Immigration update ala Pinera

I think pinera is serious about getting rid of the haitians to a large degree. As some have said, chile as a whole is not interested in immigrants with skin darker than a mapuche and Pinera, is going to work towards to that. I think giving preference to north americans is phase 1.
