I have asked him multiple times but it never seems terribly urgent. I can't vote, but I live in a place where I am more or less in the political majority (although I'm not particularly political) and I can work and live here indefinitely.
But I do plan to get it.
ADDED: I just looked it up; looks like it's now a lot easier to get the divorce decree! Thanks for the much-needed kick....he won't have to stand in line on a work day.
ADDING AGAIN: He now DOES have to go to the courthouse, because to get the certificate, you need to know the date of the divorce, which of course he doesn't....because it's on the certificate he doesn't have. Sigh.

What is the difference between someone who comes from Germany who has a green card and someone who was born in Germany that is a U.S. citizen? Citizenship is the ONLY difference.
What is the difference between someone who comes from Nigeria who has a green card and someone who was born in Nigeria that is a U.S. citizen? Citizenship is the ONLY difference.
A U.S. Citizen with the same qualifications should have preference over a non citizen no matter what race/sex/ethnicity you are.
It has nothing to do with anything other than the fact that I think the U.S. has a responsibility to put those who were born here or went through the process to get citizenship first.

I never consider a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosopy, as a cause for withdrawing from a friend. --Thomas Jefferson
As for from a business perspective pertaining to high paid technical jobs, (all numbers are made up) If all of the American's in a field ban together and say that we will not work for anything less than $50 or $60 an hour but Foreigners come in and say that they will work for $20/hr. I would much rather them hire the Foreigners in the US, then for the company to say they can not afford the unreasonably high labor costs and then move their entire company to China or Mexico.
And if you're in the country legally, you should be entitled to any job. Citizenship is a completely different set of rights & responsibilities than employment. If it weren't, then there would be no green card system, no student work visas, nothing like that. You'd have to get immediate citizenship or go hungry, or go back home.

The number of U.S. states in which a person can marry the person they love regardless of gender: 30 and counting!
According to the rules,
1. There is supposed to be due search diligence done for finding a legally authorized person for the job and offered before sponsoring.
2. There is not supposed to be the salary difference in between what would be offered to a local person compared with a sponsored person.
We know though that these two things are not being complied with.
