Re: Joe Guzzardi`s Column: Meet Rose—A Prospective Fiancée Bride Current Working In A Filipino Sex Club

I don`t know why Guzzardi has such a problem with American men who want foreign-born brides. And what does he have against the K-1 visa?

The problem with immigration is not American men wanting foreign wife, it`s Mexicans jumping the border. The US simply will not defend the border. Men who marry foreign brides are only a tiny percentage of our problem.

Give us guys a break. If American women weren`t such gold diggers and so self-absorbed, we wouldn`t be looking overseas.

Right now I`m just chatting online with young women from the Philippines. I see nothing wrong with helping someone get a better life if of course they are willing to be a caring wife.

I understand the risk but with America`s high divorce rate, I`m willing to take the chance.

American women have lost the sense of what it means to be a good wife.

Joe Guzzardi comments:

The letters pro and con Internet brides keep pouring in.

In 2002, when I wrote my first fiancée bride column, I would have agreed that Mexican border jumpers are a bigger problem than the K-1 visa.

But now, I don`t. In the last five years, we have developed a much higher level of illegal immigration awareness, enlightened a more resistant Congress and put systems in place to identify and thwart illegal aliens like E-Verify and 287 (g).

But the visa holders—and I mean all of the non-immigrant visas collectively—are a long-term problem. They arrive legally, bring their extended families and compete for jobs

I note that Washington State`s Asian, Hawaiian native and Pacific Island population is seven percent. Perhaps a bride could be found among the available women already here?
