I am an asylum seeker from Maine where I spent 13 months before moving to Michigan. The waiting time for Maine is 3 years, what about Michigan?
Michigan, historically a magnet for immigrants from Arabic speaking countries and with its currently considerable number of asylum applicants from all hot flashpoints in the Middle East and beyond will not take any less, likely even longer is my prediction.
