Iraqi Translators in the News

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!

Iraqi and Afghan Nationals who have worked for the US Armed Forces for at least one year and who are able to obtain the recommendation of a General Officer are eligible to apply for permanent immigration to the United States (by petitioning for classification as special immigrants and then either consular processing for an immigrant visa or else applying for adjustment of status if already admitted to the United States). The number of translators who can immigrate under these provisions of the law is 500 per year. James E. Pittman, Esquire, provides experienced legal representation for Iraqi translators in this type of case. Contact the Law Office (215-772-1818) for more details.

Recently, media outlets around the country have covered the stories of some Iraqi translators who are in the process of immigrating to the US in the Special Immigrant translator category. Here a few clips:
