In barely a week, 25-year-old engineer Marcos Marzo went from riding his small electric motorcycle past the low buildings of Havana’s Vedado district to traveling the mega-highways of Florida, amazed by the towering high-rises and giant supermarkets.

Wait for the life of a working slave that awaits you in that country.

This is good. Immigrants have sponsors who will feed them, give them a place to live, while their asylum request gets processed. They will be with family. That's a good thing.

In the US, you are expected to pay your way, so he'll need to get a new Engineering degree if that's his goal, or he might do like other immigrants and take up a well-paying, in-demand, trade like HVAC or plumber where any smart engineer can learn the basics in a few months and start earning a good living anywhere outside NYC or California. You know, places where the cost of living is between 30 and 50% less - so almost anywhere else, including Florida.

I find it funny that someone working in Japan would call workign in the US being a working slave. Skilled people in the US seldom work more than 50 hrs a week, unless they choose it. When I worked in Japan, it seemed 60-80 hrs was standard, which is why I didn't stay there.
