For the United States, some of the most dedicated work in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan has come from individuals who were not U.S. citizens. These individuals faced and continue to face very real risks to their health, safety and lives for their service to our country. The U.S. owes them a tremendous debt.
Iraqi or Afghan individuals who assisted the U.S. military as interpreters or translators or in other capacities may be eligible for certain special immigrant visas (SIV) under the Afghan SIV program or the Iraqi SIV program. These visas allow them to live legally in the United States and to build lives here.
At Cascadia Cross Border Law Group LLC, we work with individuals to help them obtain these visas. Working out of our Anchorage, Alaska, law office, attorney Margaret Stock has built a reputation as a leader in matters of military immigration and national security. Stock is a retired lieutenant colonel in the Military Police, U.S. Army Reserve, and a former professor at the United States Military Academy at West Point. She uses extensive, in-depth knowledge of immigration law and the U.S. military to achieve the best possible results for our clients.
