Case Summary:

With a Ph.D. in rangeland ecology and management, our client, a bioscience research technician from Libya presented all his abilities to advance his research in the rangeland ecology field. When he engaged North America Immigration Law Group to assist him in constituting an NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition, we commenced evaluating his substantial academic background and research summary on restoring and maintaining rangelands for improved land management decisions and sustainable agricultural practices, which is of great importance because he aims to restore degraded arid land ecosystems. Rangelands, which are predominantly grassy and shrub-filled lands where domestic livestock and wildlife are responsible for ecological management, account for nearly one-third of the United States. Also, his research, this way seems to be relevant in restoring degraded arid land ecosystems, promoting sustainable agricultural and environmental practices, and improving the U.S. agricultural sector. Thus, we put a few more crucial points in our customized petition packet to support his case:

  • We noted the 6 peer-reviewed journal articles (4 of them first-authored) published in no fewer than 2 highly ranked peer-reviewed journals, which accumulated a total of 22 citations. This signifies that he is having a lasting effect on the direction of rangeland ecology research. Furthermore, he has also served as a reviewer for several publications and completed 6 reviews. Reviewing manuscripts is a cornerstone of the academic publication process because it assures that journals maintain their high measures of innovation and accuracy by only publishing work that has been thoroughly vetted by recognized professionals in the field. By reviewing these many reviews, he has firmly showcased his role as an authority in the field.
  • In the line of support, we also specified that his work has also been supported by several grants from the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP), the Oregon Beef Council, the United States Department of Agriculture’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture (USDA NIFA), and the Oregon Agricultural Experiment Station (OAES). The effect of western juniper removal on carbon sequestration capacity and transpiration levels has been published in highly ranked, high-impact journals, cited by many of his peers, and funded by notable U.S. government organizations. This is an unusually strong record of success for a researcher in rangeland ecology and demonstrates his ability to continue pursuing his proposed research.
  • Besides, we added five recommendation letters acquired by his fellow researchers, confirming that his research in the rangeland ecology field is advancing breakthrough solutions to some of the leading challenges that are facing the nation’s agricultural sector as well as the wellbeing of ecosystems around the United States. Also, one of his recommenders stated the below-mentioned:

“Using his expertise in rangeland ecology, [client] is advancing research into novel methods to ensure the health and sustainability of the environment… His research is increasing knowledge of how diverse ecological attributes affect the overall ecosystem and the implications of shifting environmental conditions for global ecological sustainability and health. His research is increasing knowledge of how diverse ecological attributes affect the overall ecosystem and the implications of shifting environmental conditions for global ecological sustainability and health.”

Successfully, USCIS was satisfied with our client’s groundbreaking research in the rangeland ecology field, which has direct applications to enhancing global agricultural and land management methods and is therefore nationally important. USCIS adjudicated our client’s case within 11 months, and then he has conferred his NIW petition approval. We thank him for choosing our law firm to prepare his I- 140 petition. We cordially congratulate him on maneuvering closer to get his green card soon.
