GREEN CARD Para vivir y trabajar en Estados Unidos, todo ciudadano extranjero necesita el documento llamado green card ("tarjeta verde"), si bien en la actualidad ya no es de dicho color. El proceso para obtener este permiso de residencia permanente es largo y complicado. Se puede conceder a familiares directos de ciudadanos estadounidenses (como por ejemplo, esposos), a refugiados o asilados políticos que lo hayan sido desde hace al menos un año y a trabajadores con un contrato indefinido (o patrocinados por su empresa). Asimismo, existe el sistema llamado informalmente "green card lottery", que, mediante un programa informático aleatorio, concede 50.000 permisos a ciudadanos de países con un nivel bajo de inmigración a EE UU.
