How does the process of waiting for U.S. legal permanent residence (e.g. a green card) shape visa-holders’ well-being, everyday lives, settlement trajectories, and longer-term integration? How do visa-holders make sense of and navigate this process of waiting? This talk will explore the experiences of temporary visa-holders in the United States waiting for legal permanent residence processing within U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) as the service arm of the U.S. immigration bureaucracy.
