Chinese owned business here. It can cost upwards of $30,000 to get smuggled into the US from China. Most don't have anywhere near that so wind up spending years working off their debt to their American masters. And if you die or run away, they will go after your family, even back in China.
It's just another form of invasion. Also, wouldn't communist police keep their families from being gone after? Another thing is I was watching some program once about what some Koreans do here. Korean busuness owners here will pool some of their money together to bring somebody from Korea here AND set them up ib business. From what I remember about it, this wasn't something they were expected to pay back. It was sort of a Korean patriotic service. It isn't as though they were needed here. The whole point if it was basically invasion.

Not just "someone" is usually a relative.
What's particularly patriotic about an S.K. leaving his country and moving here?
He starts a business HERE, he pays taxes HERE. If successful he brings relatives over HERE and then THEY do the same. Eventually becoming U.S. citizens. So, how is that a "patriotic service" to South Korea?

How the East Asian consider relationship is not the same as those from Western European backgrounds. They place more emphasis on the connection of being in the same home village than we do. Daughters that are married off to other villages have less status in terms of loyalty than daughter-in-laws that married into the the villages. Sons that marry into another village are disgraces to the village.

There is an Asian saying, I can't remember the wording. The village or rather members of the village pool the money to send forth their brightest or strongest because he is mostly likely to succeed, then he can throw back the rope (money) to pull the next chosen village member into that better world. Remember, it is always the best goes first because they are the brightest and the strongest. It is meant to be a self repeating and accelerating process until everyone has been extracted from a shitty situation to a much better world. The elders know that they are sacrificing for the future generations.

There was a dirt poor Chinese village that did just that. The entire village scraped together whatever and everything they had and sent him forth to a big city. He became almost an overnight billionaire, and instead of bringing his village to world, he did brought the world to his village. He rebuilt the village. Instead of dirt they have pavement. Instead of huts, they have mansions. He built a school and the most high tech hospital. He subsidized high class restaurants and other couture businesses to operate there. DANG! From picking peppers to living the life of the rich and famous because they had the tribe mentality that allowed them to believe and place everything they had in one champion.

Do you think they don't have crime and corruption in China ?? There is always a criminal element. Just because it's a communist state doesn't mean they are any better or worse at solving crime than any other type of government. Nor does it mean their underpaid officials are any less likely towards corruption.

Though it is interesting that China, with four times our population, has LESS people in prison than we do !!

I don't care what you "have to say" - the majority of border crossings are from Columbia, Venezuela, Guatemala, etc. We have a large Mexican immigrant population, but that is not where the large refugee influx now is from. Mexican immigrants are mostly legal immigrants.
Just how does that change the issue?

The Chinese considers anyone from the same village to be a "relative". That is another reason why Chinese "families" here in America are perceived to be abnormally huge. Many in the "family" are very distant cousins or merely just from the same home village, and not the "extended family" in the western sense.

Ever been to a Chinese wedding? It is usually ENORMOUS.

All those different Korean business owners probably weren't all related to the person they wanted to bring over. Next, the only thing that matters is the same thing that matters throughout the rest of the animal kingdom. Which is what you are. For humans, what political cult you belong to or whatever rag is flying at the top of a flag pole isn't the true basis for real patriotism. The real basis for that is in what you are. The more Koreans can spread out and infect other countries, they are doing a real patriotic service to their own kinds of people. White people would be doing a real patriotic service to their own kind by sending them back to where they came from. Or at the very least, not letting any more come over here.

So what is the vaccine for the Korean infection?

Come on, tell us what you are really trying to say.
