Houston is the fourth most populous city in the United States of America, and the most populous city in the state of Texas. According to the 2010 U.S. Census, the city had a population of 2.1 million people within a land area of 599.6 square miles. It is the economic center of Houston – The Woodlands – Sugar Land, which is the fifth-largest metropolitan area in the U.S. with over 6 million people.
An extensive analysis of the 2000 and 2010 censuses by Rice University’s Kinder Institute for Urban Research found the Greater Houston metropolitan area grew by a whopping 1.2 million people and increased by more than 123,000 per year over the decade.
“Houston capitalized on its closeness to Latin America, its emergence as a major destination for immigrants from around the world, the area’s pro-business policies, low cost of living, significant job growth and location in the fastest-growing state in the nation.” – Michael Emerson, co-director of the Kinder Institute.
The secret of Houston’s phenomenal growth over the past decade doesn’t come primarily from relocating or retiring Americans, but from first-generation immigrants and from their children born in Houston. Over 115,000 new jobs were created in the Houston area in the 2012 calendar year, marking a significant growth streak. This makes an ideal situation for people from abroad who want to immigrate to Houston, especially through work visas.
Under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the doors have been opened for Canadians and businesses seeking to enter the US markets. As a result, US Work Visa applications for Canadian businesses and professionals are now being accepted through a streamlined process.

“Ms. Zhang, I am satisfied to report that I have just received today the decision on my waiver re-application in the mail. The decision was favorable, whereby I have been granted temporary access to the United States for two (2) years, effective from June 13th, 2011. It is unfortunate that it was not granted with a longer expiration date. Nonetheless, I will ensure to begin the re-application process well in advance of the expiration date of June 12th, 2013, to ensure we don’t experience any lapses as experienced during this most recent process. Based on the information that you have, please ensure to notify me should you determine a more suitable time when I should begin the re-application process. Again, my sincerest appreciation for the work and support that you and office have furnished to me in gaining this entry waiver. With sincerest appreciation.”

“I am so happy and glad to hear about the decision that the panel has made Katherine. Me and my wife we would like to thank you so much for all the hard work you have done for us, from the preparation of the case to the wonderful work you did in court and all the work you have done after the court until the panel has made the decision to allow the appeal and set aside the removal order. After we have lived five years apart in two different countries, you helped us through your guidance setting aside the removal order and bringing hope into our lives to reunify our small family soon in the near future. Without the wonderful work you have done, we could have lost that hope facing tremendous hardship in the future for us and our child. We truly appreciate, and are grateful for all that you have done for us. With your help and effort everything was resolved. With much gratitude.”
