  • My wife is a Business professor from India with a PhD from UW. She had an H1B visa and would have had to wait for years for her Green Card if she didn't marry me. When she got her Green Card this February her happiness was dampened severely knowing her sister and many of her friends might have to wait decades to receive theirs. I consider myself extremely informed but I had no idea how terribly unfair the immigration system was until I started dating her.

  • My view, Why not bring them all in? Bring more people to the PARTY!!!

  • That bit where he asked where her parents were when she just told him they were killed... I have no words...

  • Hmmmm, US citizens with migration backgrounds are voting more for democrats than republicans. But noooooo this is not a reason why republicans are against migrations, nooooooooo.

  • the history of USA is entirely based on illegal immigration, how ironic

  • Most of immigrants vote Democrat. Why should Republicans NOT cut immigration? If they gotta come, they gotta vote Republican.

    • Not necessarily. Immigrants as a demographic tend to hate illegal immigrants more then anyone else, since they're percieved as line jumpers. Also, a lot of them come from conservative countries. Republicans hate them because they outsiders, and thus make easy scapegoats for more complicated issues that their politicians don't really want to deal with.

  • "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free... Oh, maybe not!"

  • Pretty sure Ted Cruise got a bump in voting thanks to John Oliver...

  • Reminds me of when I was telling someone I was on my way home to my grandfather's funeral and they asked where my grandfather lives. I said nowhere... he's dead. Not sure why we'd have a funeral otherwise.

  • It is odd people why people wants to come to this country: there is no universal health insurance, high incarceration rate, mass shootings every few months or years, and government corruption. Canada and Australia are also lands of immigrants as well & they got there acts together better than the US.

  • monopolizing loan shark victims The moment you realize Trump is actually defending all the people not born in the US. Getting the American treatment is only for people born in the states.

  • "America is full, no more LEGAL migration" -Trump. America's land mass is 4th according to the CIA World Book occupying 3,119,884.69 square miles, not including Alaska, Hawaii, and island territories . They included Antarctica, so let's say its the 3rd biggest country, with population of 332,639,102. America is HUGE!!! I could disappear into the horizon if I go full clandestine. The government will never find me. It takes 10 hours to fly from Portland, ME to San Diego, CA, flying at cursing speed of 600 mph in a straight line. I went to Wyoming not too long ago, it was flat and deserted for miles and miles, same with neighboring states like Idaho, Montana, Iowa, Nebraska, and the Dakotas. Sure, it may resemble their home countries, minus rubble of houses, sand mixed with human remains and the relative chance of stepping on a mine or IED. But they will find peace.

  • Cuccinelli: "Give me your tired and your poor, as long as they're not tired or poor."

  • If you have 50 states with thousdands of islands plus a district at Washington and then you are full- how come that the entire country doesnt explode? Or rather the planet? Countries with nine regions would leave a hole as big as the earth´ s core in the ground...

  • USA: let's fight in the middle east Also USA: no we don't want you poor middle eastenes who search refuge

  • Are we all going to ignore that Ted Cruz quoted animal farm?

  • Is there a list of all these sources @LastWeekTonight? I need to convey this to my dad.

  • <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="320">5:20</a> Can we just pause for a moment and reflect on the irony of Donald Trump griping about family members coming from a different marriage?

  • cs-tv.org/tv/video-NqrJfuYfPWQ.html please listen; all of you with souls

  • The New Colossus Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame, With conquering limbs astride from land to land; Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame. "Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

  • From my understanding, isnt there area in the united states that are suffering from population declined, they are even offering low-interest mortgage, low-cost public college, as well as student loan forgiveness, if you relocated to that area. Read about it somewhere in an article a while back. so like why not bring in more immigrants and have them live there?

  • Xenophobia is a common underlying theme in everything Trump does.

  • What if you just dont want immigration? Many reasons its fair to be against it in general.

  • His wife did chain migration Trump's wife

  • Conservatives:They keep taking our jobs Yet none of them are willing to do these hard jobs that most latinos part take in That’s why

  • Haha bts

  • The only positive take away from legal immigration is money. A nation is more than an economy. Giving away pockets to people who don't even respect you is a horrible idea.

    • C.B. I would think if you’re willing to work hard and come here legally, you would probably like the country you’re emigrating to

    • Saying that immigrants don't respect the US or its citizens just isn't true, especially immigrants who are citizens. www.cato.org/publications/immigration-research-policy-brief/immigrants-recognize-american-greatness-immigrants "Seventy‐​five percent of immigrants who are American citizens are very proud to be American compared to only 69 percent of native‐​born Americans." If anything, seems like immigrants who come in and become citizens are more proud of this country than other citizens. That's just one stat point out of a dozen in that article which illustrates that immigrants are not statistically different in their opinion of America or their fellow Americans when compared to the rest of us. There are even a few cases where they carry more pride, even.

  • My father almost killed a cow and my family in Malta 🇲🇹

  • Ok

  • Not a Trump fan, but I think when he asked “where are they now” he was referring to where Isis is, as in have they left or are they still there. He shouldn’t have interrupted her, period, but he does stuff like that and digs his own hole.

  • unskilled immigration is inappropriate for the american economy. plus, our top 30 universities are already churning out many talented and diligent students more than capable of leading the nation so there is little need for even skilled immigration now.

  • Truth is *Depressing* but better than what Trump says. like if u agree

  • I immigrated to US today by jumping the border in Arizona Suggest me a good state to start my new life My educational qualifications Proficient in English Proficient in tamil Proficient in hindi Know a bit of Spanish Knows a lot of math I mean I can integrate function Has a good knowledge about chemistry I mean enough chemistry to make petroleum refinery I am from India

  • As someone who's studying Americanistics, and as someone whose biggest dream is to move to the US (despite all of it's flaws I stick to my dream), this video made me extremely anxious and sad. I will have to work really hard and probably have my soul killed until I get there. But I will not give up, and on behalf of everyone else who'd like to move to the US, I hope and pray that legal immigration laws will get better in time. That's all I have. Hope.

    • Rosalie B. Rowan we’ll be waiting. Godspeed

  • <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="900">15:00</a> why did she want to come to the USA if she was in Germany?

  • i don't think countries, generally, "give" migrants to other countries...

  • As a maltese citizen i can confirm that the map shown of malta is actually to scale

  • In all fairness, what have the democrats done for legal immigrants?? Not the refugees, but the work visa folks!!

  • Give me your skilled elite, your European masses of high birth yearning to be even wealthier.

  • As of April 2020, legal immigration to America has been halted seemingly to zero.

  • Has there always been a laugh track?

  • As an illegal immigrant (who came here when i was like 4) Watching this makes me feel so hopeless 😭

  • Why would i leave Europe to go in a third world country?

  • Does anyone know where to find that clip of trump explaining visa lottery wrong? I cannot find it on both youtube or google search. I know its real because... of course, it is... but can someone help me out thanks :)

  • Didn’t think I’d see a BTS reference on a John Oliver video about legal immigration but here we are

  • It’s hard to have legal immigration when the president is limiting all immigration

  • I didn't know Trump was also against legal immigration. Thanks for opening my eyes to that.

  • Funny......

  • Come to the Midwest we need y’all please

  • And why everyone should be migrating into the USA in the first place... The USA had long become a brain drain, picking most talented people from all around the globe and moving them into their "City on the hill", I think this should have stopped, there is no permanent trend or permanent empires, every empire comes to its fall.

  • Trump is my hero , why the fuck people of our nation what to go there . This is your home and have the guts to better make it better place !!!

  • I'm just waiting for Trump to step down.Then, Ameeica will be great again.

  • My mom came to the US from the Philippines during the nursing shortage. When she finally got her citizenship...it was better than a dream come true!! Most US citizens don't understand how scary and difficult the process is.

  • 🇺🇸😤 Seems that the USA only wants genius comino to do the jobs morones do not want to do. Son only Canadá and Australia would want farm and intensive migrants. The Trumpfs were migrants once. ⛓⛓⛓⛓⛓💰

  • that yearning part fucking counts

  • fun fact: the main graphic for the show(the one that says Legal Immigration on it) has a star in the lower part, and it's marked Texas because the largest processing center for immigration applications is in texas

  • There is one way. Launch an alien looking space ship into orbit then re-enter making sure to land in Kansas.

  • Yeah, Malta is only about 1/10 the size of Rhode Island.

  • How are you brother ,my question is that my wife fill I -130 pettioner for me from USA and I am from Pakistan we get well come letter now we are on nvc stage we need fill DS260 so I previously lived in Saudi Arabia since 2013 to 2015,then move to UAE and lived two years in UAE and left that country in 2017 almost 3 years passed never go back in UAE and that two countries visas stamped on my passport do you think I need police certificate from uae and Saudi too even since 3 years living here in Pakistan so that I need police certificate from Pakistan only do think nvc or the time of interview any effect further if need police certificate from uae how can I get because I am in Pakistan so please help no issue if I mentioned on DS260 that I was in UAE then submit to them Pakistani Police certificate ?

  • As a democrat, ask Amercians whether the country is full John. They should decide that queston... as a non Amercian l I'm guessing not every immigrant is Einstein... watch breaking bad recently?

  • "Typically a stone cold killer" Yes 1492 is a great example of a stone cold killer coming into North America

  • Yaaaaaassssss the boys made it into Last Week Tonight! This ARMY is proud <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="617">10:17</a>

  • not to be selfish but as a indigenous person i don't think we would be able to accept everyone without having population control laws similar to china

    • Population control laws will never happen in the US

    • JO didn't advocate letting EVERYONE in lol

  • Why is America getting a lot of heat about immigration. Have you ever been to another country? Immigration is extremely hard anywhere.

    • @jasper426 Nope. The statistics Conservative propaganda usually cite to back up that claim consists primarily of unaccompanied minors. That's an entirely different issue.

    • Stephen2462 not really a false equivalence considering thousands of children were split from their families under both Bush and Obama. My point was that the media was silent on this until Trump took office, often neglecting Obama’s role. Granted you are correct, in that Obama had a path for families to be reunited

    • @jasper426 False equivilence. They were mostly temporary facilities set up around events like hurricanes that inevitably cause a spike in il(legal) entries. Then the Trump administration made them permanent and massively expanded them to account for their policy changes that caused significant upticks in the number of people being held. Also, Obama was much better about creating paths to legal citizenship, which Trump has been against, which puts his actions in a very different perspective.

    • Stephen2462 Obama has detention centers in place well before Trump, yet the media stayed relatively silent about it. At least we know now.

    • @jasper426 No more so then any other president. Obama was criticized for a lot of stupid stuff, like wearing a tan suit and eating dijon mustard, and don't get me started on that stupid birther stuff, which Trump was a vocal part of. The critisism of Trump just gets more attention because he keeps saying and doing things that deserve it and are easy to criticize.

  • I nearly burst into tears at the thought of Sir Oliver *not* making it.

  • Mr invisible accordion tiny hands

  • "advantaging the well-off and disadvataging anyone they ever think might have geater needs." ... so... the USA in a nutshell then? All i see is America being America.

  • "Legal good, illegal bad." Don't think about the Boston Tea Party, Rosa Parks, Ghandi's Salt March, The Singing Revolution, The Greensboro Sit Ins, the Women's Movement, etc. All illegal, so that means all bad. I guess.

  • John: "Does he honestly think we made one of those spinning bingo hoppers for 22 million people?" Trump: "Countries come in and put names in a hopper" Yeah, I think he fucking does.

  • <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="50">0:50</a> Damn you Oliver, you got me to do a spit take on my hw

  • Bravo John Bravo

  • <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="327">5:27</a> "shut up"

  • PLEASE ADD CLOSED CAPTIONS

  • Trumpists just need to admit they’re racist

  • The sad thing is that poor people create companies. Rich kids dont do anything. We should be letting mlre people in. Like alot more. Just not muslims or people who dont speak english or share our culture.

  • Trump has obviously never heard of brain drain that countries who cant get immigrants have. Trump is an idiot. But mo illegals. We need to upgrade the system. That and healthcare and infrastructure all need to be done. Each one is a 1 trillion dollar bill.

  • I realise that we in Europe are extraordinary lucky that we have the Schengen area now. The fact that you can just not be allowed into a country to live there boggles my mind.

  • Ted Cruz is an idiot.

  • The term for a Visa to come to America, from another country that has a higher % of one race then America has of the same race is called an "M&M transfer"!!! Or a Majority to Minorty transfer!!! It was Texas answer to bussing, and integration. So, I could ask, as a white person, to be moved to an all black school, but, I could not ask for a transfer to an all white school and vice versa. So, instead of integration we got a lot of schools that went from white to black, and schools that went from black to white. Which caused massive segregation!!!??? Ooops!!!

  • Do it legally....do you know how long that takes..no...exactly....most people have no idea what the process entails but speak as if theyre experts and unfortunately, vote that way. The worst of it all, our own president doesnt know the process AT ALL but speaks publicly about it and says completely false guesses and his supporters believe it.
