Dozens show up for Shovel Brigade Mob


BUFFALO, N.Y.- Dozens of volunteers showed up in South Buffalo Saturday morning to help dig out their neighbors.

The group, called the Shovel Brigade Mob, was organized through social media, by those who were not severely impacted by the storm and wanted to help their neighbors who were.

"We didn't get much snow in Elmwood so I haven't seen much impact from the storm, so I thought it would be good to come down and help out the people that really were buried in by it," said Dan Wemmell, a volunteer.

Buffalonians buried in snow appreciated the help.

"This feels good. Even though we are facing a real challenge it feels good to have so many people you didn't even really know come to you and help you," one South Buffalo resident said.

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.
