Immigration reform has been a hot topic for a while now. Everyone wants to know what the United States should do about illegal immigrants residing in this country, but far fewer people are concerned about how the reform will affect those trying to come to the U.S. through the proper channels.
Every person who wants to come to the United States legally must apply for a visa or legal permanent residence. A foreign national may be eligible for a visa if they:
– Have family in the United States
– Have been offered a job in a specialized field
– Are willing to invest a substantial amount of money into a business
– Are coming to visit temporarily for business, pleasure, or medical purposes
– And more.
However, if the immigration reform passes, USCIS employees will be overwhelmed with applications from hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants. This will cause a “clog” in the system, meaning visa processes that already take months to complete will take much longer.
If you are thinking about applying for a visa or permanent residence, you should contact Boyer Law Firm immediately to begin the process.
