It may be possible for this individual to petition for you to receive an immigrant visa. There are several options available depending upon the type of business and position offered as well as your education, skills, and experience. It would be best if you and your prospective employer has a consultation with an experienced immigration attorney.

That could very well be possible, depending on the job offered and your qualifications to meet that job's requirements. A permanent job offer through employment ("green card") can take years to process along all its stages, especially if you are a native of Mexico, and the mere fact that an employer "filed" on your behalf does not give you the right to remain, live and work in the US while the employment based "GC" petitions are moving along, that is why you need to first find the right "work visa" for you and apply for it first. There are many work visas. Consult with an experienced immigration attorney to see which and what is best suitable to your particular skills and situation. Your wife and kids will automatically benefit from whatever visa/status you end up obtaining, since they are your dependents.
