    Unfortunately green card holders can only petition for their spouses and children not for parents. USC can petition for a parent but not for the in-laws:

    She'd have to naturalize first and then petition for her mother. She won't be subject to a numerical visa limits. You're correct, there's no difference in rights and responsibilities between natural born and naturalized USCs.

    Cheers.
