Acclaimed violinist denied green card, appeal pending

A top-tier professional violin player has been denied permanent residence in the U.S. because of the lack of prestige of her employer. The woman, like many in Texas, came to the States with a dream of pursuing a music career; she obtained an undergraduate music degree and was able to land a permanent position at the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra in North Carolina. However, an immigration official has denied the woman's application for entering the path to citizenship, even though her attorney says she should be considered "an alien of extraordinary ability" and allowed to remain in the country.

Undocumented filmmaker and journalist arrested in Texas

A man who has become something of a symbol for people who support the cause of undocumented immigrants in the United States has been quite public about the fact that he is, himself, undocumented. He even wrote a piece on it for the New York Times, and he is the winner of a Pulitzer Prize. He also started a group, which he named "Define American," to help with this cause.

Obama takes immigration into his own hands

Although most recent talk about immigration reform in Texas and other states has revolved around the decisions of the national legislature, President Obama can still make some changes on his own. Congress has again failed to agree or back an immigration reform plan, so our chief executive says he intends to institute new immigration programs through his own branch of government. Reports show that he intends to target green cards and the H-1B visa system.

LGBT spouses fight for adjustment of status rights

Imagine spending 40 years working through your Texas immigration case. Although four decades' worth of legal fights may seem overwhelming, that is what one gay couple has had to pursue in order to resolve their immigration concerns. The couple -- who met and fell in love in Los Angeles before getting married in Boulder, Colorado -- have been seeking legal status for one of the men since the 1970s. The undocumented immigrant, age 72, is still waiting on word about his pending green card application.
