How do you get a green card if you are undocumented? Undocumented Immigrants Might Qualify for Green Card by Marrying U.S. Citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident. Entering into a valid, bona fide (real, not sham) marriage with a U.S. citizen (of the same or opposite sex) makes you an “immediate relative” under the U.S. immigration laws.

Can you apply for citizenship if you are illegal? Immediate Relative of a U.S. Citizen

How can an immigrant legally enter the US? Someone must sponsor you or file an immigrant petition for you. Wait until the petition is approved and there is a visa available in your category.
