US Immigration laws detail the legal conditions to migrate to the United States, work permits and citizenship.
Immigration laws in the United States have some objectives such as keeping families together or receiving qualified foreign workers in the country.
Some laws allow you to stay in the country for a limited period of time, however, other laws promote permanent residence in the United States.
These laws can be modified at any time, the plan of the current administration seeks that millions of undocumented inhabitants in the country obtain benefits to obtain permanent residence and later US citizenship.
Many migrants wonder if there are ways to legally immigrate to the US and in reality there are several options, migrants can request to stay permanently in the country if:
- Have family members who are US citizens or permanent residents.
- They have special job skills and an employer who can "sponsor" them
- They come from a country that is at war or suffering a natural disaster
- Were injured or threatened in their country for political, religious, social or other reasons
- Were abused by a spouse, parent, who is a US citizen or legal resident.
- Came to the US as a child or have children who are citizens or legal residents.
