Default I know many cases.

In my previous career, I lived in various countries of the former Soviet Union.

Folks of the FSU need tourist visas to the USA. Many many do overstay. I'd say in the 20 or so families I've known to simply just stay, I'd say 18 of them were deported, and banned. It does happen...alot.

Remember of these 20 - these were folks with families. A few had children born in USA, kids that spoke ONLY English, then all removed over to places in the FSU.

Their lives in USA were not calm. Oh the kids had school, but the parents had to hide A LOT from them. Friends in the community helped with IDs for utilities, etc. Oh, buying and insuring a car was not done to help keep them undercover. Working as cleaners, carpenters (they were scientists, teachers, educated sorts) all under the table...sometimes they were not paid, underpaid and overworked, with no recourses. Their respective communities gave charity dental, health. But what a life... okay, a better life for their kids but gave up theirs. Then the family was deported and many of those kids are living still in the USA with relatives, friends.

I am a USC. I am amazed that Europeans think they can 'blend' better into the USA (as not to be the 'deportable' types), and Brits more than any think they can live and work in USA and never be 'treated' like an illegal. All think of Mexicans as illegals.... but Canadians have no right to work in USA either, and neither do Brits. I am amazed at how many Brits don't believe they only have a 90 day VWP situation. They go to USA to buy holiday homes, primary homes, etc. - then are shocked when they are refused at the US Border later on.

Other countries are very happy to have people invest in their countries, and happily give visas to do so - why not try other countries? (Mexico, for example.) The USA isn't paved in gold and things are tightening more and more for those who think they can just show up and be American. I'd find a legal way to move over.
