Can my husband pay a penalty fee to get a green card?
I am a U.S. citizen, but my husband is here illegally. We were always told that if he wanted to apply for a green card, he'd have to leave the United States and then he wouldn't be let back in for many years. I heard something about a law that passed in the last days of Clinton's administration, allowing illegal immigrants to pay a penalty fee and apply for their green card in the United States. Does this law help us?
