Immigrant Visas - Various
Pathway #5 : Various Special Programs
From time-to-time, the Congress passes various special programs that afford foreign nationals the option for Permanent Resident status. Perhaps the programs of greatest potential relevance are: 1) the possibility of enacting an Amnesty Program; and 2) certain initiatives to provide Permanent Residence to children of unauthorized aliens who have attained a college education (i.e., the DREAM Act). In addition, our immigration laws contain certain provisions that confer Permanent Residence as a matter of law, such as: Registry, Suspension of Deportation, and certain Country-Specific measures.
