    I would not try to come to the United States right now, even as a student with the current political climate. Check back after November and see where we are at, but aside from not being advisable you might not be able to get a Visa.

    Hi! So first of all Iím making this post with the assumption that youíre 18+ years old. If youíre not, youíre not of US legal age and shouldnít be on these forums.

    The political climate in the US is pretty fragile right now, especially when it comes to foreigners coming to the US. Getting a student visa may be difficult depending on what specific country youíre from, especially from Islam-prominent countries (please look up travel bans to the US). The US has always had a huge problem with racism and bigotry, but itís become more overt recently. Racial profiling incidents are often in the news and harassment from US-born (usually white) citizens towards people of color and especially POC foreigners is becoming a really big issue. Especially in states that are conservative-dominated, like Georgia or Texas, you might run into issues.

    If youíre on a student visa, you cannot work off-campus (so any job thatís not a work-study) legally for at least one year. After one year your off-campus work eligibility will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. Where you are from will possibly be taken into considerationó again, racism and bigotry is a huge issue and people who are supposed to be unbiased often arenít. There are clubs that will hire you without a work visa but that opens you up to a potentially VERY unsafe situation. If you work off-visa, you are more likely to end up at clubs that will try to exploit the fact that you canít complain about the working conditions and you will be under constant stress of being ratted out to ICE. You could get detained by ICE for an indefinite amount of time and then deported and then barred from re-entry. Again, the fact that you are working as a stripper makes you even more vulnerable.

    Iím not saying that these things are right. They are so, so unbelievably fucked up. But this is also how they are right now.

    November is mid-term elections in the US. Many citizens are trying to change the poltitical climate, but November is only a small first step. There will be problems here for a very, very long time. Iím not trying to dissuade you from coming here and going to university, but if you do decide to work off-visa while youíre here, you need to be aware of the risk that youíre taking. Please be mindful of your choices and your safety no matter what you choose to do.

    ^^^ I agree. Be careful of any place that will hire you without proper ID. If you want to come here and study that would be okay, but I wouldnt prioritize stripping over getting an actual education. Come here to get an education, not just to strip. I support WOC, but most strip clubs have a Shitty attitude toward WOC.

    I have a friend who is a CNA here and she makes enough money she sends money back home. They will pay for your education most of the time if you are a CNA.
