It's very high. Mine is on "electric chair stand-by" ;-)Worried
. Don't do anything stupid and don't ever try to use somebody to stay, if you have some morals. Respect the country you pretend to like.
And I'm taking the opportunity to quote a story that happened to my ex-(Polish) girlfriend. She was legally working as a doctor for 2 years in the U.S. a few years ago. She met a Polish guy there and thought that she had found the man of her life, expecting them to get married and have children, happily going to church every sunday together. But he found himself in an illegal situation (probably expired visa). He wanted so badly to stay in the U.S. that he met an American girl of Brazilian origin which he married after 3 months, dumping the Polish girl straight away (but telling her he still wanted to have sex with her on the side because she was the one he loved). The poor girl was so devastated and just got back to her mother in Poland, with an emotional shock from which, I suspect, she never fully recovered, and a complete distrust in men.
Some people are just ready to do anything to stay in the so great America :-/ It's disgusting.
