Memphis, TN

I came here (02-21-1999) with a Visa (C9), and got married with kids. Anyways, my old lawyer in New Mexico got me a SS card and a work permit before I moved to Memphis and got a new lawyer, but he said he he doesn’t think I can be an American Citizen because of my Visa, so I have to go back to Ghana. I know I’m not going anywhere, I can live with my wife and kids. It is not easy to get a Visa.
