Nyein got his Green Card!!

On Sunday, Nyein shared with me some good news.  He got his green card.   Nyein has been in the U.S. for five years as an invited guest of the American government.   Since they had relocated to NC from their arrival in Texas, he has struggled with getting his green card but now it has arrived.

Usually when refugees arrive in our country they have an I-94 form for the first years until they can get processed for their green card.   Our people in High Point have to make a trip to south Charlotte for screening by a contractor of the Dept. of Homeland Security.  They have to pass health requirements and wait for several months before they receive their green card.

Now that Nyein has his green card he can begin studying to be a citizen of the U.S. and in four years can take the citizenship test and be sworn in as a citizen of the United States.   What an opportunity for a man who came to the U.S. to let his children have a country they could call home.

When Nyein shared this news with Roger Richardson they did a high five because Roger had been working with Nyein on this for the past year.
