  1. Aria Royals says

    9:07 Oh lol lucky I'm from like the smallest country in the world

  2. Holo G says

    It’s ridiculous America is such a big country let a few people in all the European countries which are ten times smaller letting the same amount of people in and are running out of room

  3. Seashelll Sea says

    Actually for me I have to wait two years to get my citizenship.

  4. MadFabulous says

    @BuzzFeedVideo I would love to see a video like this, but where Baby Boomers try getting jobs with realistic millennial prospects.
    "I have to do HOW MANY more years of school???"
    "Ohhh God that's a lot of student loans"

  5. I used to be an orc but now I'm an astronaught says

    America is awesome but I'd rather immigrate to Canada, no offense to all Americans but your Healthcare is too expensive for me.

  6. Kortney Jones says

    3:23 lottery doesn’t exist now

  7. Ask Me says

    Why is everyone crying the comments about deportation or whatever. Just come her legally. Illegals don’t help in anyway.

  8. Ask Me says

    Why don’t we just deport the undocumented then allow people in that do things the legal way.

  9. Honeyshade says

    i had to help my mom study for the citizen test but it was really easy. I guess it's because I'm an american citizen and was currently learning that stuff in history

  10. Honeyshade says

    I guess my parents were lucky to get a green card 13 years ago on Lotto. My mom just did the citizen ceremony thing. But living in Australia wouldn't have been to bad.

  11. Yosha T.V says

    Hey! from India love you guys .why don't you react to Bollywood songs

  12. PhantomPhoenix1 says

    Why work for your citizenship when you can just walk over the border?

  13. Sidharth Bilolikar-Deshmukh says

    too bad, so sad

  14. Averyofthemain says

    send'em back

  15. Im a big ass nerd says

    My mom came to canada at 17 but the only requirements are
    1. Know the national anthem
    2. Answer 25 canadian questions.
    Merica be rude.

  16. Amol Ryan says

    These idiots can't even spell "amendments" 1:20

  17. Christi 6154 says

    ahh I helped my mom study for this test! she became a citizen a couple months ago :))

  18. Miu says

    Why would anybody want to go to that shi*hole?

  19. sablecoast says

    All I can think when I see Maral and Zach next to each other is, "THEY SHOULD BE TOGETHER" OMG. LIKE if you agree

  20. Alli Ament says

  26. Noor B says

    literally just go to canada, its easier and you'd definitely be happier, they do everything better

  27. FLaPP JaCK says

    Do marching band lmao

  28. ThePremiumChicken says

    I was an immigrant and we came here legally. We were treated just fine. We kept our nose clean, we studied hard, we worked hard, and we prospered. That's the American Dream. When you come here illegally, you're already starting on the wrong foot and you're setting yourself up to fail.

  29. m i c h i says

    "History doesn't repeat itself, but it often rhymes." Holy crap, this words run deep.

  30. Henry and crazy stuff says
