Have you ever wondered what happens to all the students that come to the United States on visas after they finish their education? Some crash planes into buildings and others work for our government on expired visas.
During the early 1980s, when I attended Southwest Missouri State University, the campus was flooded with foreign students. A large number of these students were Iranians. I married one such student and uncovered a web of lies and fraud that spanned from a college professor all the way to the United States State Department.
I was 18 and my new husband, Fred, was 26. I was born in California, and according to Fred, he was born in Missouri and grew up in Iran. I’m sure he must have been, because he had a Missouri birth registration card that said he was, right? Wrong!
Many people do not know the difference between a birth registration card and a birth certificate, and at eighteen years old, I was no exception. Becoming a US citizen is easy if you don’t want to go through the long process of doing it the legal way. This “Delayed Birth Registration.” This form is great because it can be filled out any time after an undocumented birth.
