    Napes you forgot the process whereby a US employer who cannot hire US citizens sponsors an applicant for a job and thereby permanent residency.

    Napes : I'm in the same boat as yourself as of next year.

    Looking at potential in Alaska (actually not half bad having spent a month out there) and Virginia.

    Other potential and great feedback from Fairfax County PD in Virginia and Phoenix PD in Arizona.

    Best of luck to you! *s*

    Strummer I think you can apply three months before you are eligible for citizenship, not five. If I'm wrong, I'd love to know more!

    vpscguard, as far as I know the US military does not hire or recruit Canadian citizens. You need US permanent residency to even apply to the US military. Otherwise, every foreign national would enter the US via the military. Working here is not easy to do legally. Your best route would be to marry a US citizen, or to become a police officer in Canada, then gain sponsorship from a US LE agency and lateral across. I doubt a US agency would take you as a corrections officer, as they don't generally even offer police laterals to US CO's.

    Napes,
    Just went over the IMLaw regarding you, an Lawful Permanent Resident(LPR), holding a valid I-551 card can work in the U.S. as a LEO. However, Federal law can be superceded by State law, as in the case of Florida's statute. I suggest looking for a jurisdiction that doesn't require US citizenship. Good luck! I also recommend that you look into status change as soon as possible to get the ball rolling as it may take up to two years to effect the change.

    Your welcome for the list!

    Hope it is of some help to you!

    as for getting your hands on a green card, it really boils down to one of a few ways to get you hands on one.

    From the little i know ( having been through the system myself) you can only get one if you fit into one of the following groups -

    1. You have an immediate family member that is a us citizen (mother, father, spouse etc)
    2. You hold an "advanced degree" and / or are a "skilled worker" and can self petition to emmigrate based on your "exceptional ability"
    3. You have a ton of cash and intend to use it to start up a Business that will employ 10 US citizens
    4. you get one from the green card lottery

    theres a few other ways - and most of them are answered by looking at this link to the USCIS site.

    http://uscis.gov/graphics/faqs.htm

    the rules might be different for canadian citizens, check it out!

    and good luck....! - its definetly attainable

    Thank you all and especially "napes" for this thread. I have been a corrections officer in Vancouver, Canada since 1995 and I am very interested in pursuing a career in L.E. in the U.S. Only problem is I don't have a green card and am not even sure how to obtain one. I remember someone telling me on this website to join your military because apparently, they accept Canadians for recruitment. Would this be the only way to obtain a green card without waiting 10 years on a waiting list? Any advice?

    I would be willling to seek U.S. citizenship if required, in order to pursue a career in U.S. L.E. Thanks in advance.................
    I posted something similar a few years a go under a different nickname. I was frustrated with trying to get into policing in Canada in the mid 90's and had given up and was looking south of the border. Then a Mountie replied and told me to apply to the RCMP one more time. I did, and I sailed on through.

    So, I am going to do the same to you! Why not apply to the RCMP?

    We need good people so bad that you only compete against yourself! If you pass all the benchmarks you're in. It's that simple.

    Private Message me if you want too.

    Im not going to fight it or anything but i think your wrong -

    It clearly says as per my post above that Citizenship IS a protected status, the same as race, sex etc

    "Citizenship" is not a protected class under federal civil rights act. You have no case. Find a dept that does not require citizenship (then are lots of them) or else become a citizen.

    I was in the same boat as yourself several years ago. I kept searching until I found departments who would let me test without being being a citizen.

    You are really grasping straws if you think you can sue your way onto a dept because of "citizenship" discrimination.

    It might not be a bad idea to apply for some agencies with long hiring pipelines. By the time your number comes up you could very well be about to get your US citizenship. When I applied for citizenship the process took about 6 months.

    Also, be aware you can start the citizenship application process 6 months before your 5 year residency has been reached.


    Later.

    The Federal govenment is exempt from the fair hiring practice statutes, because Congess wrote them that way, but states and local governments aren't. Federal law supersedes state statutes.

    god this is getting into a long drawn out forum,

    Having done a bit of reaserch myself - Citizenship status IS mentioned,

    quote -

    Sec. 44.200 Unfair immigration-related employment practices.

    (a)(1) It is unfair immigration-related employment practice
    for a person or other entity to knowingly and intentionally discriminate
    or to engage in a pattern or practice of knowing and intentional
    discrimination against any individual (other than an unauthorized alien)
    with respect to the hiring, or recruitment or referral for a fee, of the
    individual for employment or the discharging of the individual from
    employment--
    (i) Because of such individual's national origin; or
    (ii) In the case of a protected individual, as defined in
    Sec. 44.101(c), because of such individual's citizenship status.
    (2) Intimidation or retaliation. It is an unfair immigration-related
    employment practice for a person or other entity to intimidate,
    threaten, coerce, or retaliate against any individual for the purpose of
    interfering with any right or privilege secured under 8 U.S.C. 1324b or
    because the individual intends to file or has filed a charge or a
    complaint, testified, assisted, or participated in any manner in an
    investigation, proceeding, or hearing under that section.
    (3) Documentation abuses. A person's or other entity's request, for
    purposes of satisfying the requirements of 8 U.S.C. 1324a(b), for more
    or different documents than are required under such section or refusing
    to honor documents tendered that on their face reasonably appear to be
    genuine and to relate to the individual shall be treated as an unfair
    immigration-related employment practice relating to the hiring of
    individuals.

    section (a)(1)(ii) states that in the case of "protected individuals" it is illegal to discriminate on the basis of citizenship status - provided that the alien is an authorised one (ie - Legal)

    Having looked up section 44.101 Protected aliens are ones who are permanent residents and a few other categories - which i am.

    So Citizenship is mentioned.
