Any chances they would even let a ex felon enter the country or stay and apply for permanent residence? What loopholes or alternative options would there be for someone who just wants out of the US.?

antemily2 commented on the Expat Report Culture Shock in Porlamar, Venezuela
Do you have any advice or thoughts about culture shock you would like to share?
I've lived and traveled many places and have always gone with the attitude to not expect things to be the same or even like where I came from. However, if you are going to live in a country that by many is considered a 3rd world country, be some research or go ahead and have a visit and a 'look-see' as to what to expect and be honest with what you are capable of being able to live with..or without.
