Is Melania Trump really fluent in five languages?

what's up with the text to speech news bots?

He makes a compelling and convincing argument.

His politicalization of it ("It MATTERS if she doesn't speak english!") I don't care about. It doesn't matter at all.

But it's interesting that she doesn't actually speak more than very rudimentary greetings, and one of them incorrectly, in two of her fluent languages.

Agreed. He brings some good analysis to the table. I am convinced she is not fluent in Italian or French. The crap about why it matters could have been cut.

I guess it was useful though. I was not aware that the US offers permanent residence or green cards to people who don't speak english.

I've looked into working overseas and speaking the language is an extremely common immigration and work visa requirement, probably in most of the world.

It's kind of shocking the US doesn't have this. That should be remedied.

It wouldn't apply to refugees or temporary foreign students and it wouldn't harm anyone since if you really want to move to the US permanently you really need to speak english before doing so.

What are the qualifications for a greencard?

I know some people are h1b for a while and then get green cards.
They gave worked for a while so they probably know English or work in a field where English isn't needed.
