Spanish (Spain) Citizen wants to move to USA... How?

Asked almost 3 years ago - San Jose, CA

My best friend is from Romania, but she moved to Spain about 11 years ago. Now, she has a Spain Passport.

I read online that is much easier for a Spanish citizen to move to the United States. She wants to move here and get a Green Card. What is the easiest way? What should she do?

About how much would it cost?

Thank you so much for your help, it is very much appreciated!!
God bless,
