Hi, sorry I'm out of practice and have no idea if this is the right section to ask this question.
I have a friend who has been in the US from Honduras for almost 15 years on temporary protected status. He and his wife reapply every year, and have neve had a problem with renewal or anything. They have a US citizen daughter and his wife is pregnant with their second child.
My question is this: is there some way for him to gain legal permanant resident status or a visa of some sort to stay in the country?
Would he have to wait for his daughter to turn 18 and apply for him, or is there some other route he could take?
