Currently, any child born in the United States toÊa legally resident alien, meaning those that hold visas, is considered to already be a U.S. Citizen. If the plan is to live in the United States, however, Immigration is still preferable.
An American citizen can marry an immigrant who already has a green card in the United States. The immigrant is placed in preference category 2A, and is placed on a waiting list.
If the immigrant already lives in the country he/she is emigrating to many people use the American term "Permanent Resident"
no,but the us citizen can help the immigrant become legal.
You don't have to be a citizen to marry someone as long as you are a legal immigrant..
Yes but the American citizen has to file a petition for the immigrant.
Yes, they do. Why would an immigrant need to talk to INS about a marriage? Immigrant means they are already residing in the US legally as a immigrant.
Because citizen journalists are already right where the news is happening
If your already married she's already legal! * An immigrant legal or illegal does not become a US citizen by marrying a US citizen. The female immigrant who is in the US illegal can still be deported under US immigration laws. The issue of her being married to a citizen and having children may or may not be to her advantage. If she is taken into custody she will be given the chance to appeal any deportation issues, but there can be no guarantee of the outcome. The best option is for her to consult an attorney who is knowledgeable in immigration law before taking any other action.
Landed Immigrant then Permenant Resident
A lawful immigrant who has become a naturalized American Citizen can become a police officer, but not an immigrant/alien who has not become a US citizen.
You can't marry somebody--legal or not--who is already married. At least not in America. If the US doesn't recognize the marriage or if it is invalidated by a US judicial representative there's no reason why a citizen can't marry the immigrant.
Can an illegal immigrant press criminal charges against an American citizen?
You must then report to the police as well as the embassy of your country for help.
Yes, an illegal immigrant, in the US can get married to an American citizen and obtain their documents
Yes, unless you are already a US citizen you will need an immigrant visa that permits you to work, not a tourist visa.
Nothing these days, there's no such thing as an immigrant or illigal.
Yes. If the illegal immigrant marries a citizen, they can become a citizen from that.
No, she is not. She will be allowed to remain in the US with her spouse and children, but she will have to apply for citizenship separate from her marriage. The US citizen REMAINS a US citizen. The immigrant remains an immigrant and must follow the legal path to resident immigrant status, and from there to citizenship. Marriage is not a free pass to residency or citizenship.
yes it makes the immigrant a citizen
There really is no real advantage. Except for the fact that they do not get deported if they cross the lines*. *This does not mean they do not face penalties and/or imprisonment if they break the laws.
