i am a mecanic and i would like to bring my mom to usa becuse i have my family here in usa and it hard for me to go over there because i have my family here thank you
you begin by filing an I-130 for each relative. If your sister is still a child she can be a derivitive of your mother. If she is not a child it will take very long to get her here.
I agree with my colleague. After you obtain your I-130 approval(s), you will need to consular processing to obtain the green cards at a consulate in Mexico. You will have to follow the consulate instructions very carefully. As a result, it is often smart to hire an experienced immigration lawyer for these types of cases as they can be very confusing. We are always available to assist.

I agree with my colleagues. As a citizen over 21, your mom is an "immediate relative" and she does not have to wait in line to get her green card. It will be immediately available to her, with about 6 months of processing time. An immigration lawyer can guide you through the process with ease and make sure no problems arise.

Sorry, I disagree with my colleague. If USC is petitioning for his mom, she is an immediate relative. Immediate relatives cannot have derivatives. His Mom will have to file for her daughter once she is a permanent resident. (USC could also petition for his sister, but it will be decades before her priority date is reached)
