I'm trying to help my friend from Morocco come to America to either study or work. He basically grew up in a slum and has no way to obtain money; he'd have to get a job in the States to pay for school here. I can lend him enough for a plane ticket.
What's the easiest way to get into America from a non-Western country? Do any of you have experience with this?
He's got a Moroccan degree in electrical engineering.

He'll need to get a visa to either work or study in the U.S., he'll have to fill out a form and pay a fee, it's not too expensive but it's not a guarantee that his application will be accepted.

Here's a link with more info and on obtaining a student visa

Thanks for the link. I guess I knew the basics, but I also know it gets complicated real fast. For instance I assume as part of the visa application he'll have to prove he has enough money to live/pay tuition, when that's impossible unless he can enter America and start working.
Also he's a devout Muslim and I won't lie, he looks like Osama bin Laden. Gotta wonder if that's gonna be an obstacle.

lol, yeah with the current political climate it will probably be harder to get a visa if you're from an Arab country. But the fact that he already has a degree will help.

Alternatively, he could attempt to get a greencard instead of a visa, it will give him permanent residence in the U.S., but is a bit more difficult to acquire. It would be best to do this by finding an employer willing to hire him here, then having them petition for a greencard for him. Again, his engineering degree will come in very handy in that regard.
