Is it possible to bring my sister’s immigrant husband legally into the US ? ?

My sister has been living in Mexico for a little over a year & came back not long ago. She’s pregnant with her husband’s (Mexican immigrant) child. She decided she wants to have her child her in California but wants to bring her husband over legally. Is it possible for her to bring him over legally? Neither me or my sister work at a wage or salary earning job & make our living by fixing cars on our on.

    On grounds of human rights, of course it is dear.

    he has all the right in the world to be with his family,  there is nothing that the law of the United States can say or do to prevent him from joining his family. 

    However if he has not impregenated your sister yet,  then hes in a bit of a pickle.

    he should get her pregnant first, and if she has the baby in the US then thats almost 75% of the job done.

    Now he needs your sister to fight a case to bring him to US mainland on grounds of human rights.  The govt cannot stop him from being with his wife, nor can they force your sister to leave the US to join him.  Shes a US citizen and can stay right where she is.  america does not belong just to racist white people.  Its for everyone.

    Your sister can petition for her foreign husband's immigration. She must prove she earns enough to support self + all dependents + spouse. She needs current year paystubs + her last 3 years of US income tax returns as proof of earnings. She must also have a suitable home in the US for herself, child(ren), & spouse. She cannot be receiving or have received any benefits, e.g. welfare, Medicaid/MediCal, etc. So she needs to pay for proper health insurance and all medical bills related to her pregnancy & delivery & post-natal care.

    Spouse visas typically take 1-2 years. If she is a legal permanent resident (green card) instead of US citizen, it usually takes longer. Hubby will not enter US in time for baby to be born. If he has any record of visa/immigration violations, your sis can return to Mexico & have hubby apply for her immigration to Mexico.

    Since sis is basically self-employed, she will have to produce complete business financial records - income, expenses, net profit, prove she paid Social Security & Medicare premiums as self-employed. Along with the tax returns.

    She can certainly apply.  Acceptance is not automatic, but, married couples are normally allowed to reunite, unless there is some reason why this should not happen.

    If she does not have at least $27,150 of income reported on her federal tax return, she can not sponsor him.

    She should have the baby and go back to join him in Mexico. He can likely qualify to sponsor her to Mexico.

    If your sister is a US citizen or permanent resident and hasn't been committing tax fraud she could probably apply to sponsor her husband's green card in the US (because you have to show your tax returns). But doing it that way he probably wouldn't be processed in time to see the birth of their child (as it takes about a year). So he should try to get a tourist visa for that and then once he gets back home she can apply to sponsor him to come stay forever.

    'Working' for yourselves or not, you still have to file accounts each year and pay taxes unless of course you are cheating the tax man...which is illegal

    So 3 years of filed taxes and enough earnings to sponsor this 'bf' for a fiance visa is the only legal way, marry within the 90 days allowed or he returns home

    Don't bother taking a creative writing class.

    They plan on marrying & raising their child here as they believe it’ll be best. We both are American Citizens but i mentioned us working out of our own accord so we can’t really show we’re financially stable or “sponsor” him.

    To see the birth or stay here forever. 

    If it’s just to see the birth, he can use a passport assuming that Mexicans are allowed to visit the US. With trump and his hatred for non-whites, he might close the border to all Mexicans. 

    If he wants to be a permanent resident, he’ll have to apply for a green card. If your sister or you is an American citizen, you can sponsor them to be citizens. They’ll have to pass a naturalization test after living here for 5 years.
