Complexities of Immigration Policies
Immigration law can be straightforward, but is quickly becoming more complex.
According to the American Immigration Council: 
“Immigration to the United States on a temporary or permanent basis is generally limited to three different routes: employment, family reunification, or humanitarian protection. While the U.S. immigration system is generous, each of these possibilities is highly regulated and subject to numerical limitations and eligibility requirements. Most unauthorized immigrants do not have the necessary family or employment relationships and often cannot access humanitarian protection, such as refugee or asylum status.” 
Amanda B. Cook is available to help you with all U.S. immigration matters, including:
- Green cards (lawful permanent resident status)
- Work visas
- Fiancée visas
