We did an immigration AMA a few months ago and thought it might be time to do another. I'll be here for a couple hours to answer your
questions about U.S. immigration. There are countless potential topics, but here's one I thought we could highlight today which is
particularly important given the backlogs and delays in the green card process.
Two ways of getting a green card--the extraordinary ability and national interest waiver routes--are often very good options, and often overlooked because of a misunderstanding about the standards. Clearing up some of the misconceptions could be helpful to those of you in this community who might benefit from these routes to a green card. So if you're interested, ask me particularly about that, but I'll be happy to answer about U.S. immigration in general. As before, I can’t comment or provide legal advice on specific cases for obvious liability reasons because I won’t have access to all the facts.
EDIT: Thank you for participating in this AMA. It was very interesting and enjoyable for me. I hope that it was helpful. I need to sign off now but I’ll be checking in again later today.
