    Yeah, unfortunately I knew of the law. Probably only applied to Asiaans, not Europeans… 🙁 majority always makes horrible rules for minority: one example not related: if in medieval times a Jew decides to become a christian, he can, no problems. However if a Christian wants to be a jew, he will get executed and killed for doing it.

    Unfortunately, we’re rushing backward in the United States with regard to discrimination and xenophobia. We elected a president whose first campaign issue was to promise to build a wall to keep out Mexicans whom he called rapists and criminals.

    This is happening today.

    The U.S. tax code treats all US persons as resident in the U.S. even if they live in another country and are married to a nonUS person. Lets’ not forget that in the U.S. tax code there are penalties for foreign assets, accounts, and pensions. So in face of this if you are married to a nonUS person then one incentive is to have separate accounts (thus financially disadvantaging a nonworking spouse). Another incentive (by the US government) is to renounce U.S. citizenship, when U.S. citizenship should be about the greatest liberty in the world.


    Any US persons overseas caught up in this must visit the message boards of The Isaac Brock Society.

    I think Linda Kerber needs from education herself. It was related to the anti-miscegenation laws in over 40 states. Foreign meant non-white. Even white men could not marry Asian women. Google the Page Act. No Asian woman was allowed to come into the US. So the American men wanting to marry foreign women were allowed to do so is simply not true. Both American (white) men and women could marry European (white) men and women with no problems. Why do you think until recently the Bachelorette show was white. Not much has changed since then. Many whites would like the dating shows to remain well all-white. Bit surprised that they did not have white men and women from other countries, unlike the Dating Game Show of the 1980s which even had very racist white South African women (Boers) as competitors.

    In fact, the era we are living in may be worse. At least in the 1920s non-whites were not opposed to marrying whites. Now, that is changing thanks to Donald Trump…

    David YOU need to educate yourself.

    The US passed the war brides act where US servicemen could bring back their wives.

    It was THE ONLY exception made to Jim Crow laws before
