Permanent resident process may slow down with interviews

As the U.S. government grapples with questions of how to manage immigration, new policies emerge. The path to becoming a permanent resident in the United States has generally been slow, but the revival of a once-waived interview process for employment-based green card holders may add more time to the wait. For employment-based green card applicants in New York, this information may explain any delays they are now experiencing. 

More Dominicans seek citizenship than other Caribbean immigrants

Many individuals venture to the United States, seeking a permanent home. Of the sixteen Caribbean nations analyzed by Department of Homeland Security data, individuals from the Dominican Republic are the leaders in seeking American citizenship. Recent news coverage gives a snapshot look at the numbers of people coming from Caribbean nations to New York and all other U.S. states.  

Family immigration helps immigrants achieve

Opinions vary widely on exactly how we should support new citizens coming to the United States. Some argue that generous family immigration policies enable new transplants to succeed -- not only in emotional ways, but as an important driver of economic success. When migrants help the economy thrive, all citizens benefit. New York transplants who have access to extended family support are more likely to build a strong network and feel happier. 

A look at US permanent resident policies

If a person wants to live legally in the United States, the question can be, but how? Immigration laws can be obtuse, to say the least. A recent news article takes a look at U.S. policies for naturalization and sifts through the many details. Persons in New York looking to become a permanent resident may find some new information that can help them achieve their goals. 

Testify: An unusual way to avoid immigration charges

A recent tragedy offers unexpected hope for a pool of immigrants caught in the middle of a trafficking court case. Prosecutors are able to help immigrant survivors avoid immigration charges and gain citizenship in exchange for testimony about human smuggling that led to the deaths of several people in the back of a tractor-trailer. The New York Times tells about this unusual path to citizenship in a recent news story.
