I come to the US in April of 1980, I apply for a legal residence twice in a period of 15 years and never have I received a responded, the third time they canceled my application because apparently I did not include all the documents or something was missing and the fourth time they denied my application. I’m Appeal the case and also was denied and for this reason since then I been paying for work permit until this year that they denied my petition of work permit. Now I can’t work or I have driver's license. What I have to do to continue?
There is obviously a long history to your case and if you arrived in April, 1980 and were unlawfully in the U.S. prior to January 1, 1982 then you may have been eligible under the legalization provisions of the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986. You indicate that you had an appeal denied so there has obviously been some activity on your case at some point in time.
