Mike Dammann: Lets rally together to make him a US Citizen

SEO entrepeneur Mike Dammann has been noticeable by his absense from the online world this month and apparantly his USA residency papers were not what they should have been [source1] [source2].

Now the first rules of illegal immigrants are

  1. keep a low profile
  2. don’t leave the country and try to get back in

Breaking #1 never hurt, I guess the immigration people don’t Google the names of overstayers and he’d been up to Canada etc so no doubt thought a wee trip to Mexico wouldn’t hurt. The USA is a mighty big place though. I would have thought that once you were in you would never run out of new places to visit.

Now, I’m not a USA citizen, resident or anything like that… but how about those who are starting up a media campaign to

“Save Mike”

Surely if bloggers, webmasters and fellow SEOs the country over jumped up and down hard enough they may apply a little clemency?

Apparantly we can write to him at

P.O. Box 439049
San Diego, CA. 92143
Name: Mike Dammann
A#: 28801021

    I can’t even get my wife US citizenship so while this is a noble campaign, I do have my doubts that it will succeeed.

    I agree with James on this one.

    Obtaining legal citizenship or clemency in the U.S. has become much more difficult, especially after 9/11 – I know people who have been waiting (legally) for 5+ years for their citizenship papers.

    It is my sincerest hope, however, that Mike is alright and will continue to be alright through this entire ordeal.
