T nonimmigrant visas and the path to permanent residency

There are some people who take advantage of others’ desire to move to California or elsewhere in the United States from other countries. They promise safe transportation for a fee, but then their clients become their victims and are forced into slave labor or prostitution. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services agency states that this illegal behavior is known as human trafficking, and it carries stiff penalties. To apprehend and prosecute these criminals, the federal government offers the T nonimmigrant visa to victims living in the United States who are willing to assist with this process.

Do I qualify for a humanitarian visa?

As a citizen of another country, you may discover that circumstances have made it unsafe for you to remain there, or to return if you are not currently at home. Whether you are already living in California or you are seeking to move to the United States, you may benefit from immigration laws designed to help provide assistance in escaping harmful situations. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services explains that humanitarian parole programs provide nonimmigrant visas in a variety of situations.

Thousands of immigrant minors seeking SIJ status

Adults are not the only foreign nationals who come to the United States seeking safety from violence. Children and teenagers also make the journey. Although many arrive without the assistance of an adult, there may be resources available to set them on the course to U.S. permanent residency if that is their goal.

Immigrants play essential roles in the U.S. workforce

As an immigrant who plans to live and work in California, or who is already settled, you may be subjected unfairly to negativity at times because the U.S. is not your country of origin. This type of bias is offensive, and it is often based on false information. At the U.S. Law Center, we understand that the economy in California and in the United States depends on the workers who come here from other countries.

How does the E-verify system work?

When you apply for jobs in California or elsewhere in the United States, you should know that any employer may check your immigration status after you have filled out the employee portion of Form I-9. All new employees must complete their section of the form before the end of the first day of employment, and the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services notes that an employer may use the information provided to participate in the E-verify system.
