How The U.S. Immigration System Works

The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) governs the current U.S. immigration policies. It enables the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to award approximately 675,000 permanent visas to immigrants every year in different visa categories. 

Aside from the 675,000 permanent visas, the INA does not set any limits on the yearly admission of qualified children, parents, and spouses or U.S. citizens. Once an individual comes to the country and secures an immigrant visa, they will be considered a lawful permanent resident or green card holder. Depending on the circumstances, immigrants in the U.S. who are non-citizens can get a green card through an adjustment of status. 

Green card holders are foreign nationals who can work and reside permanently and legally in the U.S. They can apply for almost all job positions and stay in the country regardless of their employment status. After living in the U.S. for a minimum of five years (in certain situations, three years will suffice), green card holders have the option of applying for U.S. citizenship through the naturalization process. Only green card holders or permanent lawful U.S. residents can apply for U.S. citizenship. 

Besides granting permanent visas to foreign nationals, the U.S. likewise grants entry to various non-citizens by granting temporary visas. These non-immigrant or temporary visas could be awarded to everyone from temporary workers and foreign students to tourists allowed to stay in the country for several months or years. Although some employment-based visas do have yearly limits, other temporary visas, such as student and tourist visas, do not have limits and could be granted to qualified individuals.
