Attorney Famuyide Wins Green Card For A Jamaican Through Provisional Waiver at U.S. Embassy in Kingston Jamaica

attorney_wins_jamaicaIt was jubilation galore for this Jamaica immigrant who obtained her immigrant visa at the U.S. Embassy in Kingston, Jamaica after about 20 years as illegal immigrant in the United States. She returned to the United States with her green card as free person after many years of operating in the shadow of illegal status. Many thanks to Attorney Famuyide for rescuing another immigrant from the claws of deportation.

It all started about 20 years ago when this immigrant entered the United States without inspection through Canada. The trip was in search of greener pasture in the U.S. but no sooner than the journey started it dawned on this immigrant that she signed up for pain and suffering that would last for many years.

DHS Begins The Issuance Of Employment Authorization Cards to Certain H-4 Spouses of H1-B Holders Seeking Employment-Based Lawful Permanent Residence

This good news will definitely put some smiles on the faces of qualified and eligible nurses who are currently stranded in the United States. This is the best news that can happen to immigrant students studying nursing who are currently in status.
