Approximately 3.6 million DREAMers face possible deportation

People in Kentucky may have been immigrants themselves at one point, or chances are that they know someone who is. Immigration is in the forefront of our nation's politics these days, in particular issues regarding how to handle "DREAMers" -- undocumented persons who came to the United States as children. This is important as, according to one report by the Migration Policy Institute, there are approximately 3.6 million DREAMers in our nation. This amounts to approximately one-third of all undocumented individuals in the United States.

When may one be eligible for U.S. citizenship?

Once an immigrant in Kentucky becomes a permanent resident, the next step in the immigration process they may want to take is to officially become a U.S. citizen. The application process for U.S. citizenship is also referred to as "naturalization." However, there are certain requirements that a person must satisfy in order to be eligible for U.S. citizenship.

Family immigration: fewer extended family visas approved in 2017

When a person immigrates to Kentucky, they may do so on their own with the intention of one day sponsoring visas for their family members, so that their family members can also immigrate to the United States. After all, many immigrant families often want to be reunited in the U.S., where they have greater freedoms and opportunities than they may have had in their former country.

Provisional waiver may allow you to legalize your status

You probably feel like you are trapped, unable to go and unable to stay. This is how many feel when they are in the United States illegally and want to obtain their green cards. To stay means risking deportation, but to leave means triggering the ban that will prevent you from returning for years.

U.S. citizens in Kentucky have rights, responsibilities

Many immigrants in Kentucky come to our nation with dreams of a better life for them and their families. Once here, they may be anxious to start the process of becoming citizens of the United States. Therefore, it is important for them to understand both the rights and the responsibilities that come with U.S. citizenship.
