legal immigration, in a nutshell

A fantastic, visual representation of the journey it takes to become an American citizen (link via Metafilter).

The graphic did leave off one (long shot) route to America, diversity immigrant visa lottery. During my time in Mongolia, I had many many people ask me about green cards, and beyond marriage to an American, that visa lottery is it. Even attaining a student or travel visa is out of reach for most. Perhaps this chart should be hung in the US Embassy supported American Center of Culture and Information in Hovd.

America – the world’s biggest tease.
