A Princeton Instructor's Suicide and the Broken Immigration System

There are 8 comments on the www.americanthinker.com story from May 21, 2011, titled A Princeton Instructor's Suicide and the Broken Immigration System. In it, www.americanthinker.com reports that:

There is another angle to the tragic suicide of a Spanish instructor at Princeton University in early April, as reported by the New York Times (NYT): that the immigration system of the United States is broken.

Dr. Antonio Calvo was on an employment visa (probably the H1-B) sponsored by Princeton University, and as his employment was terminated, he either had to find another job -- and sponsor -- quickly or to leave the United States. After an immigrant worker's status is terminated or has expired, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) generally gives him/her 60 days to get his/her affairs in order before leaving the United States.

Apparently, Dr. Calvo could not bear the thought of leaving his adopted country of more than 10 years. Ironically, Dr. Calvo would not have a problem with remaining in this country had he been here illegally, or were willing to remain here as an illegal alien.

He could have applied for citizenship. Blame him, not the govt.

Like millions of other illegal aliens he could have just stayed.

40% of illegals are visa overstays.

He would rather be dead than go home or risk living as POOR/WORKING CLASS AMERICANS DO!

He should have returned to MX teaching English. I wonder where they'll find his bank account in MX?

Wasn't his country to start with....
Now if we could just get the others to.....
Sorry, just a big yawn for me.
I think it will take a war for the rest to leave, they can go mooch off their own country.

Spain is not a third world country. He knew long before the end date that this would be it. This was his choice, for whatever reason. I note that there was not mention of a sucide note that stated a reson, just the fact that he was having to leave, and you JUMP to this conclusion and start venting about your personal situation...

Freedom isn't free! Most countries of some wealth doesn't not want to make it easy for anyone to just slip through...as they do on our border.
