Benefits of family reunification for Ecuadorians
The new family reunification immigration program for Ecuadorian immigrants offers not only a fast and safe way to reunite, but also a series of benefits. These include:
|Family reunification allows immediate family members of U.S. citizens (such as spouses, children under 21, and parents) to obtain a permanent resident card. This grants them the right to live and work permanently in the United States.
|Access to Employment and Education
|Family reunification green card holders have the right to work in the United States in any lawful employment. They can also access public education and lower tuition fees at educational institutions, including universities and colleges.
|Health Care and Social Benefits
|Upon approval of family reunification and permanent residency, beneficiaries can access medical and social services, including Medicare programs for people over 65 and Medicaid for low-income individuals.
|Immigrants with permanent residency have legal rights in the United States and are protected by U.S. law. They may also apply for U.S. citizenship after meeting the requirements of residency and continuous presence in the country.
