I really want to go and visit USA. I havent tried getting a visa. Everybody said i may not get in or my visa will not be approved, for some obvious reason. First my financial situation, i dont have money in my bank account right now. Second, because of this economic problem that all countries are facing right now. third is because im from philippines, then always think that all filipino want to live and stay in the US once we enter their country. I just hope that someday, it will be easier to get a visa going to USA and there will be no discrimination. People have the same rights.
