I noticed your user ID: MUSLIM QUEEN. Are you Royalty from a Muslim country, or are you the leader of a Muslim movement?


There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.

Your friend could follow THIS guide - they should carefully read the 'Warning' portion as well.

??????

:huh:

To the OP; yes, they can AOS if that's what they decide to do. They could also go the CR-1 route, if they feel unsure about attempting AOS.

It is important that you know this: coming to the US with the intent to immigrate on a tourist visa is illegal.

Now, if your friend comes to the US and meets Mr Nice Guy or Miss Lovely Gal and then decides to get married and immigrate, that is perfectly legal. Scores of people have done that. In addition, you have to prove very strong evidence of bonafide marriage when you file your petition.

So if you are going to get your tourist visa and enter this country, do not make any misrepresentations.
