Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think you've got a lot to be sore about, JD. You're right about the attitude to immigrants (and this is only better for EU citizens from the older countries of the Union), and also the ageism (specially notable in France). And arbitrary administrative mistakes that screw things up (I remember one, in 1985 precisely - January that year was absolutely the damn coldest time I've known - that put off for several years the moment when I'll be able to claim a little minimum retirement pension; no going back on it, nothing I can do). I'm sorry this is happening to you.

I hope the possible teaching job works out. It sounds like the kind of help you need.
