In recent days, I have had several very happy clients, following their immigration experience. First, in the photo to the left, is a client from Israel. She has lived in the United States for 15 years and has finally received a green card to permanently reside here. She suffered for years with no work permit and no driver’s license, but now, she is finally, fully legal.
The other photo is of a family from Africa. I handled their employment-based self-petition for an extraordinary worker in the oil and gas industry. The photo was taken at the Houston immigration office following their adjustment of status interview. They are still waiting to receive the green card because the extraordinary worker visa category is now backlogged with a waiting list for visa issuance. In the meantime, they are all authorized to stay and work in the U.S. until the visa number gets reached.
