  • If my child born here?

    If my child born in US, will I be able to get the green card and if I will get the green card will I become a California resident ?

      It used to be possible for an out of status parent to apply for [sponsor] him or herself via the U.S. citizen child. But because of abuse a law was passed 1995/96 (?) that a U.S. citizen child can only sponsor parents when she reaches the age of 21 and has to prove a whole bunch of other obligations such as that she earns 125% above the minimum wage - amount changes from year to year, some states are a "bit" higher, sign a affadit of support for the parent that they won't become public charge etc.. Unless your child has a life threathing medical conditions that needs to be treated here, you will not derive any immediate benefits at this time. Good luck!

        I am not sure what law you are talking about of 1995/96.
        Only US Citizen Child can file petition for his/her Parents He/she must be 21 years of age.

          Yes, pandora is right:
          there used to be a provision of law that was repealed in 1996 that would have allowed a parent of US Citizen to legalize here.
          It is fascinating that some people believe that such law still exists.

              Talk about the current law. California, is the first State wanted to change the state law to reflect that one parent must be a USC and residence of CA. this was some time in 1992/93.
              Some time from 1983 to 1995, CA was hub for foreigner visiting hospitals to give births.
              Second was Wa, Ill, so far this only.

                It doesn't grant you any benefits. Only allows you to prevent being deported. Hence why so many mexican women immediately pop out 5-7 kids. ICE puts women with USC kids at the *bottom* of their pickup and deport list. IOW: Looks the "other" way.

                  While the women and children may be at the bottom of the deportation list, from the cases I've read, it won't stop the authorities from deporting a father who's here illegally, particularly if he's working illegally (which is how they usually seem to catch him).

                    yep. they could care less about father's with usc kids. They're out if they're encountered. Reason being: if the father is deported, then perhaps the mother will be more enticed to leave as well.
