There are many reasons as to why people immigrate to the U.S., here are 10 benefits for relocating to the U.S.
As a developed country, the U.S. has one of the best healthcare systems in the world. The hospitals in the country are well-funded and have world-leading medical innovation and advancement ensuring that you and your family receive the best care and treatment. The high quality of medical service raises a huge concern for most expatriates on the affordability of medical insurance and dental care. These costs should not be of great concern to expatriates as employers generally offer medical and dental policies as part of their salary packages which include their families and spouses.
The academic institutions of the United States offer high quality education. There are different routes available for students as they can either attend public or private institutions depending on their needs. Additionally, there are different curriculums available to students. Students can either obtain the American diploma or the International Baccalaureate diploma, which is internationally recognized, depending on their preference.

Thus, seeking employment as a U.S. green card holder provides an advantage over international applicants.
