Non-citizen children who have been neglected, abused, or abandoned by a parent may be able to get a green card (U.S. lawful permanent residence) through “Special Immigrant Juvenile Status” (SIJS) .Non-citizen juveniles (i.e., children) in the United States are sometimes abused, neglected, or abandoned by their parents. This may be because these juveniles are in the United States without parents or because their parents in the United States are unable to care for them.
