The United States of America is a very large country in North America and is made up of fifty two (52) states. These 52 states all fall under the governance of one head.
The United States of America first started as a colony of England, but rebelled. This resulted in the Revolutionary War which claimed the lives of many Americans and British alike. The outcome of the war was that the United States of America defeated the King of England and proclaimed themselves independent.

Of course, you don’t expect them to allow the entire world to just pour into the country and overcrowd and corrupt it, but the laws are generous and allow for sponsorship, work visas, naturalization, etc, much more than other countries.
