Citizenship means being a good citizen wherever you live, paying your taxes and playing a part in society

I'm a foreigner where I live. I pay my taxes (at a higher rate than most locals) and I pay more for state services like schooling and healthcare. My identity card indicates my nationality.

Do I get to vote? No.

Can I even donate blood? No, because I come from the land of Mad Cow Disease.

Can foreigners buy land here? No.

Are there regulations to restrict the number of low-paid foreigners employed by firms? Yes.

Has the number of employment passes for low-paid foreigners reduced in response to public discomfort? Yes.

Is controlling the immigration of low-skilled people into a country normal around the world in order to prevent social upheaval? Yes.

Is it normally easier for higher skilled people to move between countries? Yes.
