US Permanent Residency (Green Cards) Archives

Are you sure you are an American citizen?

Though many people in Charleston may not realize it, you do not have to be an American citizen to be in the military. There have been many non-Americans who have served with the military for years, including during the Vietnam War. One of the benefits of serving during a "designated period of hostility" is that federal law allows for immigrants to waive their permanent residency requirements and naturalize as American citizens.

Paperwork mistake causes immigrant to face deportation

Charleston residents may have a family member or know a family member who is affected by immigration issues. Obtaining permanent residence in the United States can be a confusing and challenging issue for many individuals. Fortunately, there are individuals who specialize in immigration law issues to help those in need.

The far reaching effects of immigration

Charleston residents are aware of many policy, social reform and law changes that have been in the news regarding same-sex marriage over the tenure of the Obama administration. Some residents, however may be surprised at the connection between immigration reform and same-sex marriage policies.

Vice President makes opinion on immigration reform very clear

Immigration will continue to be a pressing issue for individuals throughout the United States, as well as oversees. Vice President Biden recently spoke at the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and made his stance regarding immigration reform very clear to all those in attendance.

Actress among others push immigration vote

South Carolina residents may be aware that immigration reform has been stalled in Congress. It was nearly 300 days ago that the Senate first passed a bipartisan bill that has not gone anywhere. Advocates, house democrats and even actors have had enough and made a push for action.

Broken immigration system brought to light in documentary

No matter which side of the fence South Carolina residents fall on with regard to immigration reform, it has become clear that things will not be okay remaining status quo. It is estimated that over 1,000 immigrants are deported every day in the United States. Over the last five years, nearly two million immigrants have been deported. This may be one of the reasons behind a documentary that will air on CNN sometime this year entitled, "Documented."

Possible correlation between gay rights and immigration reform

While gay rights and immigration may not initially seem like a logical pairing to most South Carolina residents, the two issues have more in common than one would think. The nation's view of immigration has changed over the years. Many more Americans have a more positive outlook on the impact of immigration. Society's view of social reform in terms of gay rights and gay marriage has also seen a dramatic shift. As more and more laws are being passed with regards to social reform, the pathway is being made for immigration reform.

New immigration laws may make cost of citizenship rise

Many South Carolina residents expect to pay when they buy something or when someone performs a service for them. Whether it is eating out at a restaurant or having a contractor rebuild a kitchen, almost everything that a person wants costs some amount of money. Gaining US citizenship for an immigrant is no different.

Federal immigration reform potentially moving forward

The Obama presidency has been marked by strings of successes and failures, though what constitutes progress and defeat can vary depending upon the interpreter. Charleston residents are free to form their own opinions of how the federal government has handled major issues of national concern, though one divisive matter may be moving toward a possible partisan reconciliation.
