Hi~ I'm in a dilemma:
I am a US citizen. I would like to sponsor my mother and older sister (unmarried, over 21) for US Permanent Residency.
The priority date for my mother is about one year out which isn't too bad. However, if I apply for my sister, USCIS said it could take 12 years for her to get the green card. Once my mother becomes a LPR, I think she can apply for my sister which would take slightly less time (about 7 years I am told). I am not exactly sure on the times but they seem awfully long. They are both citizens of a country which has very few people emigrating to the U.S.
Should I go ahead and apply for my sister anyway along with my mother or should I wait for my mother to get her GC and then apply through my mother?
