ESTAs and VWP are not the same thing, I invite to read up more on that. Since ESTAs are generally valid for 2 years and they only need to be valid when you enter the US and not for the whole stay, I'm guessing that you probably want to extend your stay under VWP. If that's the case, then the answer is no you cannot extend your stay. You may not apply ...

Rules regarding sleeping in a car in a city will be defined by that city. Rules regarding sleeping in a car outside the city will be defined by either the county or state or both.

Harry Vervet's answer is correct, as someone that flies quite a bit, I can tell you 100% your don't need a state issued ID to fly. What you should do is allow your self more time to get through the process. 9/10 times they just send you through the perv scanner and ask a few extra questions. Some airports are setup in a way that the boarding pass check and ...

Just in case, I am also going to bring ...

Telling the immigration official each time you enter that you are studying in Canada should be enough. Having some evidence of that fact would be a good idea, but a ...

Many cities and counties are passing laws designed to solve the homeless problem by motivating the homeless to leave the area. One of the methods has been to make it illegal to sleep in cars or other places. It is my opinion (and usually the courts agree) that these laws violate the homeless person's constitutional rights. However, that doesn't stop the ...

Scam aside. There is really not much that can be deemed acceptable as proof of funds for the purpose of the visa. The issue is not just the availability of funds but also their provenance. A consulate use paystubs as part of the proof that the applicant will return because they have a legitimate job and the bank statements to proof that the money that ...
