Registry has been called by some "The Last Amesty." Registry is a section of immigration law that enables certain individuals who have been present in the United States since January 1, 1972 the ability to apply for a green card (permanent residence), even if they are currently in the United States unlawfully.
You may be eligible to receive a green card (permanent residence) under the registry provisions if you meet all of the following conditions:
You entered the United States prior to January 1, 1972
You have resided in the United States continuously since January 1, 1972
You are a person of good moral character
You are not ineligible for naturalization (citizenship)
You are not removable (deportable) under Section 237(a)(4)(B) the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) (see “INA” link to the right)
You are not inadmissible under Section 212(a)(3)(E) of the INA or as a criminal, procurer, other immoral person, subversive, violator of the narcotics laws or alien smuggler
To apply for a green card under the registry provisions, you need to file Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status.
