Family-based green card can help to bring spouse, child to US

The United States is often viewed as the land of opportunity. However, green card holders or U.S. citizens in Maryland and other states may find that even though they have made it onto U.S. soil, their loved ones are having trouble doing so. An attorney can help to bring a spouse, parent, sibling or child into the U.S. as a legal permanent resident through a family-based green card.

Illegal immigration remains major area of contention

Immigration remains a major topic of contention among voters throughout the United States, including in Maryland. This is because politicians and presidential candidates have differing views with regard to how to deal with illegal immigration in particular. There are about 11 million immigrants in the United States who lack the proper paperwork.

Child immigrants still entering country without documentation

Readers likely remember well the recent influx of immigrants who were children, and came to the United States, alone. While discussions about that particular incident have since died down, it does not mean that the practice has stopped. In fact, according to information recently provided by the U.S. Border and Customs Protection, in the course of the last two months, more than 10,000 children, who do not have proper documentation, have been caught as they made their way into the nation.

They must confirm eligibility to work in the United States and confirm their identity using the Form I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification.
