I told you, people… But sometimes you just don’t listen: Getting your U.S. residency can be as easy as becoming Miss Universe first.

Consider newly minted Jimena Navarrete of Mexico, who was seeing chatting away cozily with immigration attorney Michael Wildes of Wildes & Weinberg PC, barely minutes after winning the Miss Universe pageant Monday night.

Why? because we think she has big plans for her U.S. stay: Mr. Wildes is not only an expert in immigration law but he serves as the legal counsel of the stars, having secured green cards for Stefania Fernandez and Dayana Mendoza, Misses Universe 2008 and 2009, respectively.

See? these señoritas are smarter than you think!
