US congressmen want to restrict islanders' visa-free access

May 22, 2011 Full story: Marianas Variety

United States congressional leaders want to restrict the flow of Micronesians coming to the United States because they say the cost of providing social services to the thousands of islanders who have migrated has made the open door policy unsustainable.

Mr. & Mrs. congressmen or congresswomen what ever people or animal called you. If you people don't want micronesian people in your country anymore, because they are wasting your MONEY. Then why coming back to micronesia every year getting more young smart people to join the military in your country and fight for your country and even die for your country. How many micronesians already dead? How many are still in the military? How many got injured? How many just recruited last last year nd this year? Shamed......

if thats your opinion MR.CONGESSMAN, then you can look somwhere else for recruits. We Micronesians are proud islanders and we dnt give a damn if you want us in your country or not. we came here to find new life, we ddnt come here to spend your MONEY. we ddnt even ask you to spend your money on us. so if thats what you want, us out of YOUR country then u can kiss our MICRO ASSES!!

It was the U.S. Federal government who conducted the nuke test in Micronesia. The State government of Hawaii has nothing to do with it. Why should the State spend $120 million a year to feed the Micros? This is a Federal responsibility. Time to get off our welfare, Micros!

That's the Micro way, always look for a handout and to be spoon fed!! Well, the free ride is about up! Under the compact it says you Micro's may be in the U.S. for work or education and also be must able to support one's self, so if you cannot do this GO BACK HOME AND LIVE OFF OF YOUR OWN DAMN COUNTRY. Eventually it will not be your choice, can anyone say DEPORTATION? Quit sucking the blood out of the U.S. and talking about all this bull shit pride YOU SUPPOSEDLY HAVE!! What do you have to be proud of, resembling a leach that has latched on to it's host for the free ride and meal? Well the host will eventually find you and pick you off and throw you in the trash right where you belong. If that is what you call pride then you better get your head checked soon because I am sure it is missing some nuts and bolts and you may lose yourself from all of this so called "PRIDE".
