Bud,
The sponsor thing is to make sure that the immigrant is not taking a job from an American. We (our sponsor)had to advertise in 3 surrounding states for American applicants. Fortunately, there was only one applicant and he had worked for our sponsor and had been fired (so the story goes) for bad work. All applications had to be forwarded to Nashville with either interview dates or reasons why an interview was not granted. We, in turn, had to produce evidence that we had been qualified tile setters for a minimum of ten years, were not wanted by Interpol, did not have bad habits or bad health etc. etc. etc. The cost of being legal (and this is not a defence of illegal immigrants) is vast ($15,000 +) and sometimes a lot more as your sponsor dictates your pay and there is nothing you can do unless you can find another sponsor and start from scratch.
