In today's post, we'll continue our discussion of how those looking to secure a green card -- i.e., the immigration document conferring permanent resident status -- must be aware that the process, while ultimately fulfilling, can nevertheless be both involved and time-consuming.
In a rather significant development in the area of immigration law, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch announced a major policy shift in the nation's deportation procedures during her testimony before the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Appropriations this past Wednesday.
A few weeks back, our blog started discussing how those looking to fulfill their dream of coming to America should understand that the process requires much more than just filling out some forms. Rather, they must satisfy a host of eligibility requirements in order to secure a green card, meaning the immigration document that grants permanent resident status.
Even though we are still less than six weeks into 2016, it's already become apparent that immigration will emerge as one of the year's primary political issues at the federal level. Indeed, one needn't look any further than the pending case before the Supreme Court of the United States examining the constitutionality of President Obama's executive actions on immigration or even the televised presidential debates.
For many people looking to start a new life here in the United States, the goal -- or perhaps more aptly stated, the dream -- is to secure permanent residence. As understandable as this is, it's nevertheless important for people to understand that this process, while not impossible, is still not easy.
