FB Immigration Overview

One method to obtaining lawful permanent resident status in the United States is through certain relatives who are either a citizen of the U.S. or a lawful permanent resident. It is important to note that Lawful Permanent Residence does not automatically grant U.S. citizenship. Also permanent residence can be considered abandoned if the individual spends an extended time outside the U.S., and permanent residents can be deported if subject to a specific ground of deportation such as the commission of a drug offense.
