    Answered . You can contact other banks or wait till your husband receives his green card. The bank is not required to loan you or your husband money even if you are both green card holders.

    Answered . Most banks have a lot of discretion to loan or not loan money to a borrower. Over the last several years, lending standards have gotten much stricter and generally a bank is not required to lend to anyone who does not fulfill all requirements. I suggest you wait until he obtains his green card, or try to borrow the money in just your name.
