Cassie and Jessica revealed on the latest “Oral Sessions with Renee Paquette” podcast that they still don’t have their Green Cards:
“The difficult thing for us is that we still don’t have our Green Cards, so we’re not allowed to work until we get those, or we can find some sponsorship anywhere else. We’re so excited, we have this freedom, and we have so many ideas, but pump the brakes, we can’t do any of it. The podcast that we’re doing, we’re not making any money off it. It’s purely to get our name out there and stay relevant. It’s tough knowing we have all these things we want to do, but can’t do it. We’re in this holding pattern right now. There’s literally nothing we can do. It’s just waiting.
We have been in this process for four years, which is basically unheard of. No one could control the pandemic, or the government, or that kind of stuff…People are like, ‘What do you want to do now?’ I’m like, ‘Nothing, because I can’t legally work here in this country.’ People think you apply for a Green Card and it comes in the mail. Doing this stuff takes years, things get denied or having to switch the process over because of the pandemic, and it’s year after year.
It’s like, we’re almost there, but almost there could still be a year away. People are like, ‘It will work itself out, or surely your former employer can help.’ It’s like, ‘No. We are in this together. It’s just us doing it by ourselves now.’ That’s been another added stress in getting released, because we didn’t know what will happen, like, ‘Do we have to leave the country? Do I have to sell my house?’ We had no idea how it works. Thankfully, we can stay here, but that added stress. It is a lot. We hope it can work itself out in the next 6-12 months.”
