Lawful Permanent Residents, or Green Card holders, have many benefits not available to non-immigrant visa holders and other immigrants. Green Card holders have more rights when the government attempts removal. Green Card holders have the ability to become U.S. citizens after a certain period of time residing in the United States as a permanent resident.
Obtaining a Green Card appears to be a simply procedure involving filling out forms. However, there are many traps that can cause not only a denial of the application, but also criminal prosecution and/or removal. The Immigration and Nationality Act, and other immigration laws, are extremely complex and they change constantly. Don't risk making a fatal mistake in your application process.
