Easier than you might think if you have a skill or trade. Show that you have a job waiting with good prospects of self support and it's much easier. However i'm afraid homesteading probably doesn't fit that description anymoreI think criteria #H must place higher in the order of likely success.
I may or may not like the idea of moving to America and buying a Homestead but does America like the idea of giving me a Green Card??
Also remember the other part of criteria H: namely that the majority speak English.
