This is what happens when foreign exchange students or J-1 Visa visitors believe the land-of-opportunity myth that has been perpetrated by the Grand Banana Republic all these years (via Hollywood): What they find of course is that they’ve entered a pretty scummy country. “…This is not what I thought when I paid all this money to come here,” said Natalia Berlinschi, a Romanian who came to the U.S. on a J-1 visa hoping to save up for dental school but got stuck in South Carolina this summer without a job. She took to begging for work on the Myrtle Beach boardwalk and sharing a three-bedroom house with 30 other exchange students…In my whole life, I’ve never lived in that kind of place and that kind of conditions…” Now you know how those born here in this shit hole feel.
