Preserving the Status of Children Born to LPR Parents

Preserving the Status of Children Born to LPR Parents

 

Per U.S. immigration regulations, a child born to a Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR) parent will automatically acquire his or her parent’s status if the child was born in the U.S. within the validity of the parent’s green card. But what happens when a child is born during her LPR mother’s temporary visit abroad?

Fortunately, the same regulations hold that children in this category also automatically acquire their parent’s LPR status, provided:
• The parent and child seek entry into the U.S. within two years of the child’s birth; and
• Either accompanying parent is applying for readmission upon first return after the birth of the child.

Niagara Falls Company Admits to Releasing Harmful Gas


NIAGARA FALLS, NY - A Niagara Falls company admits it was acting negligently when it released hazardous gas into the air, affecting some people who were nearby.

The company is called Tier NY. According to the plea agreement 2 On Your Side obtained, the company admits it was negligent when in June 2013 the company improperly released hydrochloric acid gas from their property.

The gas can cause eye irritation and burns, and it can even be deadly.

"A giant cloud containing this highly poisonous gas, hydrochloric acid type gas, did travel from the location of the Tier Corporation to a neighboring business," said U.S. Attorney William Hochul.
