Our military personnel has one of the hardest jobs in our country. The sole duty is to protect the freedoms of our country either on our soil or abroad. They leave their family for months on end to ensure the security of our country is unfaltering. The least our country can do is ensure that while our military personnel is fighting to protect our freedom, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, we protect their families, especially if they are immigrants to this country.
Our military forces are a mix of various races, ethnicities, and generational existence as United States residents. Current data suggests that over 80,000 military personnel were immigrants. Before you can get your citizenship, you can actually join the military. All you need to join the military is proof that you live permanently in the United States, have a work permit, possess an I-551 Permanent Residence Card, have a high school diploma or GED, and that you speak English. While you serve our military you can work towards naturalization and so can those in your family.
Under the Obama Administration, politicians finally recognized that those who serve in the military deserve to think peacefully about their family members. If you are willing to serve our country then our country should be willing to respond in gratitude by ensuring that the spouses, parents, stepparents, children, and stepchildren of those who are active members of the US Armed Forces, current members of Selected Reserve or Ready Reserve, or those who have previously served in all three services. This means that even if you are a veteran of these services your family members are eligible to apply for Parole in Place.
The beauty of this application process is ease in which it can happen. You do not need to fly back to your home country in order to re-enter lawfully. You do not have to enter any United State embassy’s or government buildings to assert who you are. Instead, all of the paperwork can be completed online. This also means that you do not have to have an immigration interview or speak with any other immigration officers.
Once approved you can move forward with obtaining a green card or full naturalization. Others are happy to receive their work permits and maintain their status. Whatever your choice is, please know that if you are an immediate relative to someone serving or a veteran in the military then this an option for you to stay in the United States legally.
