In 2015, there was some fun and games on the Norwegian-Russian border where a border crossing had rules against pedestrians, motor vehicles and horses crossing the border but not bicycles.

There, refugees face a new twist: Russian law bans foot traffic at the border and Norway fines drivers for carrying migrants across — meaning the only way to cross is by bicycle.

Yes, bicycle.

The legal twist has prompted a brisk trade in used bicycles throughout Russia's Northwest — any size or condition accepted. Entrepreneurial Russian smugglers have even arranged package deals of minivans and bicycles.

You're under the mistaken impression that America has one.

Obviously we do have a workable immigration system because immigrants DO use it and become citizens.

That using our system may B tedious it does work.

700.000 immigrants become US citizens per year.  I just checked it out.

The US system has so many loopholes. As an employer, I was not allowed to hire anybody except American citizens or people with a residence visa (green card) but we did use some subcontractors who had their own employees. We were audited but the subcontractors were not because they were a "small business".
