The first step in any immigration process in New Mexico is to consult an experienced immigration attorney. To apply for an employment based green card, an immigrant’s employer must file a petition called an Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker. An immigration attorney should always assist with this process in New Mexico. To qualify for an employment based green card, an immigrant has to meet one or more qualifications: extraordinary ability in science, art, business, education, or athleticism, outstanding achievement as a either a professor or a researcher, a position of multinational executive/manager, a member of a profession requiring an advanced level degree, a professional whose employment would greatly benefit the US, a holder of a US bachelor’s degree who is applying for a job that requires one, or a skilled worker with at least two years of job experience or training.
