Lawful permanent residents (United States)
Lawful permanent residents known as legal permanent residents, informally known as green card holders, are immigrants under the Immigration and Nationality Act, with rights and privileges to reside in the United States permanently. There are an estimated 13.2 million green card holders of whom 8.9 million are eligible for citizenship of the United States. 65,000 of them serve in the U. S. Armed Forces. Green card holders are statutorily entitled to U. S. citizenship after showing by a preponderance of the evidence that they, inter alia, have continuously resided in the United States for at least five years and are persons of good moral character. Those who are younger than 18 years old automatically derive U. S. citizenship through at least one of their American parents. Every lawful permanent resident is issued by the U. S. government a "permanent resident card,", known as a "green card" because of its historical greenish color. It was called "alien registration card" or "alien registration receipt card."
The permanent resident card serves as proof that its holder is a legal immigrant having similar constitutional rights as all other Americans. It may be used to obtain a State ID card and/or a driver's license. Absent exceptional circumstances, immigrants who are 18 years of age or older could spend up to 30 days in jail for not carrying their green cards. Green card applications are decided by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, but in some cases an immigration judge or a member of the Board of Immigration Appeals, acting on behalf of the U. S. Attorney General, may grant permanent residency in the course of removal proceedings. Any authorized federal judge may do the same by issuing an injunction. An LPR could become "removable" from the United States after suffering a criminal conviction if it involved a serious crime or an aggravated felony "for which the term of imprisonment was completed within the previous 15 years." Those who the Attorney General admitted to the United States as refugees and adjusted their status to that of LPRs are statutorily immunized against deportation for lifetime the same way like "nationals but not citizens of the United States."
The INA, enacted by the U. S. Congress in 1952, states that "he term'alien' means any person not a citizen or national of the United States". A longtime LPR "who claims to be a national, but not a citizen, of the United States may apply to the Secretary of State for a certificate of non-citizen national status." The granting of such United States nationality is determined on a case-by-case analysis, which depends on the number of continuous years the LPR has physically spent in the United States. In 1982, the U. S. Supreme Court stated that "once an alien gains admission to our country and begins to develop the ties that go with permanent residence, his constitutional status changes accordingly." That opinion was issued after Congress and the Reagan administration resettled in the United States refugee families from totalitarian states, such as Afghanistan, Laos, etc. Unlike other aliens, these refugee families permanently lost everything, including their former nationalities, became nationals of the United States.
On September 30, 1996, President Clinton signed into law the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act. As of 2014, there are 13.2 million LPRs of whom 8.9 million are "eligible to naturalize." These LPRs can secure many types of jobs just like U. S. citizens can. For example, about 65,000 LPRs are members of the U. S. Armed Forces. LPRs can live anywhere within the United States, they can operate any type of business in the United States. An LPR loses the right to become a U. S. citizen after suffering a conviction for any crime involving moral turpitude. An LPR can get deported from the country after suffering such a conviction an aggravated felony "for which the term of imprisonment was completed within the previous 15 years." It makes no difference if the aggravated felony was committed in Afghanistan, American Samoa, Canada, the United Kingdom, the United States, or in any other country or place in the world. After the successful elapse of such "15 years", a long-time LPR automatically becomes entitled to both cancellation of removal and a waiver of inadmissibility.
Such LPR may request these popular immigration benefits depending on whichever is more applicable or easiest to obtain. Those who were admitted as refugees under 8 U. S. C. § 1157 and adjusted to that of LPRs inside the United States are statutorily protected from deportation for lifetime. These are families, including children, who escaped from genocides and have no safe country of permanent residence other than the United States; this legal finding is supported by latest precedents of all the U. S. courts of appeals and the BIA, which are binding on all immigration officials. These refugees have "been lawfully accorded the privilege of residing permanently in the United States" by the Attorney General, but decades the plainly incompetent immigration officers unconstitutionally turned these resettled Americans into refugees again. Unlike other aliens in removal proceedings, the refugees owe permanent allegiance to the government of the United States; this makes them nothing but a distinct class of persecuted Americans.
The ones who are denied U. S. citizenship are statutorily allowed to live in the United States with their Ameri
The MLS Cup is the post-season championship game of Major League Soccer. The winner is crowned champion in the same manner as in other North American sports leagues; this differs from other top soccer leagues around the world which consider the club with the most points at the end of the season to be the sole champion. MLS honors that achievement with the Supporters' Shield. A U. S.-based team that wins the MLS Cup is awarded one of that country's berths in the following year's CONCACAF Champions League. The league hosted its inaugural championship, MLS Cup 1996 on October 20, 1996. Today the MLS Cup is held in early December, featuring the winners of the Eastern Conference Championship and Western Conference Championship. LA Galaxy are the most successful team, winning a record fifth Cup in 2014. During its history, the MLS Cup has been represented by the Alan I. Rothenberg Trophy from 1996 through 1998, a redesigned Alan I. Rothenberg Trophy from 1999 through 2007, the Philip F. Anschutz Trophy since 2008.
The MLS Cup's roots trace back to the foundation of Major League Soccer, when the league decided to have a championship format similar to its contemporary North American sports leagues by having the season culminate in a postseason tournament to determine the league champion. For the first few MLS Cup finals, the championship was dominated by D. C. United, who appeared in the first four MLS Cup finals, winning three of them; the inaugural MLS Cup in 1996 was the first championship match, featuring United and Los Angeles Galaxy. The inaugural match had the Galaxy take an early 1–0 lead, double in early in the second half. However, their lead was relinquished towards the end of the match when Tony Sanneh pulled one back in the 72nd minute. Nine minutes Shawn Medved tied the match at two, resulting in overtime between the two sides. Four minutes into overtime, Eddie Pope gave United the golden goal victory. In 1997, the second league cup final was contested at RFK Stadium, where United won back-to-back titles, a feat that would not be accomplished for another decade.
The game ended 2–1 in United's favor over Colorado Rapids, who would not win a championship until 2010. Jaime Moreno was declared Man of the Match for his goal in the 37th minute of play; this season was the first time in league history any MLS team won the regular season and postseason title in the same season. D. C. United's run ended the third year, when they made a third run to the MLS Cup finals, only to lose to the expansion-side Chicago Fire by 2-0; however the following year, United repeated their "double" of winning both the Supporters Shield and MLS Cup the same season. This time, it was a 2–0 win over the Galaxy in the 1999 MLS Cup final. For the first time since 1997, the 2000 MLS Cup final saw a new club reach the finals along with the Fire; this time the Kansas City Wizards won their first MLS Cup with a 1–0 victory over the Fire. From 2001 through 2004, the MLS Cup finals saw a rising of the California Clásico when stateside rivals, L. A. Galaxy and San Jose Earthquakes clashed together in the 2001 final.
The match saw the rise of U. S. national Landon Donovan who won a Newcomer of the Year award and tallied the equalizer in the Earthquakes 2–1 championship victory over the Galaxy. With the largest crowd in MLS Cup history at hand, the New England Revolution took on the Galaxy in the 2002 finals. For the match, over 61,000 fans were in attendance at Gillette Stadium to witness the final. In the second period of sudden-death overtime, the Galaxy nabbed their first MLS Cup title, sparked the start of a string of MLS Cup losses for the Revolution; the 2003 final saw. Two clubs that had MLS Cup experience, the Fire and Earthquakes, played for the final that year; the two clubs had successful regular season campaigns with the Fire winning their first Supporters' Shield, the Earthquakes being the Western Conference regular season and post-season champions as well as having the second best overall regular season record. In a hotly contested match, the Earthquakes won with their second MLS Cup title with a 4–2 score making it the highest scoring MLS Cup final in league history.
After a four-year absence, United made their fifth trip to the MLS Cup final, playing against the Wizards for MLS Cup 2004. The match had four goals scored in the first 25 minutes, with United rallying for a 3–1 lead. Midway through the second half, United had relinquished a penalty kick. Josh Wolff scored for Kansas City. D. C. United was able to retain the lead, by winning their fourth MLS Cup title, by a score of 3–2; until 2005, the MLS Cup championship games had been dominated by clubs that had either won or had come close to winning the Supporters Shield. In the 2005 MLS Cup championship, the match was won by the Los Angeles Galaxy, who won the league title by having a 9th-place overall record; the Wizards had a better record, but did not qualify for the playoffs because they finished 5th in the Eastern Conference, in spite of an 8th-place overall record. The result prompted MLS to create new wild-cards that were used starting in 2006, where only a certain number of clubs per conference could qualify, the next best overall teams regardless of conference would qualify.
That in itself prompted debates about the league switching to a single table and a balanced schedule. The single table has yet been instituted, but in 2010

Association football, more known as football or soccer, is a team sport played with a spherical ball between two teams of eleven players. It is played by 250 million players in over 200 countries and dependencies, making it the world's most popular sport; the game is played on a rectangular field called a pitch with a goal at each end. The object of the game is to score by moving the ball beyond the goal line into the opposing goal. Association football is one of a family of football codes, which emerged from various ball games played worldwide since antiquity; the modern game traces its origins to 1863 when the Laws of the Game were codified in England by The Football Association. Players are not allowed to touch the ball with hands or arms while it is in play, except for the goalkeepers within the penalty area. Other players use their feet to strike or pass the ball, but may use any other part of their body except the hands and the arms; the team that scores most goals by the end of the match wins.
If the score is level at the end of the game, either a draw is declared or the game goes into extra time or a penalty shootout depending on the format of the competition. Association football is governed internationally by the International Federation of Association Football, which organises World Cups for both men and women every four years; the rules of association football were codified in England by the Football Association in 1863 and the name association football was coined to distinguish the game from the other forms of football played at the time rugby football. The first written "reference to the inflated ball used in the game" was in the mid-14th century: "Þe heued fro þe body went, Als it were a foteballe"; the Online Etymology Dictionary states that the "rules of the game" were made in 1848, before the "split off in 1863". The term soccer comes from a slang or jocular abbreviation of the word "association", with the suffix "-er" appended to it; the word soccer was first recorded in 1889 in the earlier form of socca.
Within the English-speaking world, association football is now called "football" in the United Kingdom and "soccer" in Canada and the United States. People in countries where other codes of football are prevalent may use either term, although national associations in Australia and New Zealand now use "football" for the formal name. According to FIFA, the Chinese competitive game cuju is the earliest form of football for which there is evidence. Cuju players could use any part of the body apart from hands and the intent was kicking a ball through an opening into a net, it was remarkably similar to modern football. During the Han Dynasty, cuju games were standardised and rules were established. Phaininda and episkyros were Greek ball games. An image of an episkyros player depicted in low relief on a vase at the National Archaeological Museum of Athens appears on the UEFA European Championship Cup. Athenaeus, writing in 228 AD, referenced the Roman ball game harpastum. Phaininda and harpastum were played involving hands and violence.
They all appear to have resembled rugby football and volleyball more than what is recognizable as modern football. As with pre-codified "mob football", the antecedent of all modern football codes, these three games involved more handling the ball than kicking. Other games included kemari in chuk-guk in Korea. Association football in itself does not have a classical history. Notwithstanding any similarities to other ball games played around the world FIFA has recognised that no historical connection exists with any game played in antiquity outside Europe; the modern rules of association football are based on the mid-19th century efforts to standardise the varying forms of football played in the public schools of England. The history of football in England dates back to at least the eighth century AD; the Cambridge Rules, first drawn up at Cambridge University in 1848, were influential in the development of subsequent codes, including association football. The Cambridge Rules were written at Trinity College, Cambridge, at a meeting attended by representatives from Eton, Rugby and Shrewsbury schools.
They were not universally adopted. During the 1850s, many clubs unconnected to schools or universities were formed throughout the English-speaking world, to play various forms of football; some came up with their own distinct codes of rules, most notably the Sheffield Football Club, formed by former public school pupils in 1857, which led to formation of a Sheffield FA in 1867. In 1862, John Charles Thring of Uppingham School devised an influential set of rules; these ongoing efforts contributed to the formation of The Football Association in 1863, which first met on the morning of 26 October 1863 at the Freemasons' Tavern in Great Queen Street, London. The only school to be represented on this occasion was Charterhouse; the Freemason's Tavern was the setting for five more meetings between October and December, which produced the first comprehensive set of rules. At the final meeting, the first FA treasurer, the representative from Blackheath, withdrew his club from the FA over the removal of two draft rules at the previous meeting: the first allowed for running with the ball in hand.
Other English rugby clubs followed this lead and did not join the FA and instead in 1871 formed the Rugby Football Union. The eleven remaining clubs, under

Frisco is a city in Collin and Denton counties in Texas. It is part of the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex, is 25 miles from both Dallas Love Field and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport; the city population was 116,989 at the 2010 census. As of April 1, 2019, the city had an estimated population of 186,087. Frisco was the fastest-growing city in the United States in 2017, the fastest-growing city in the nation from 2000 to 2009. In the late 1990s, the northern Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex suburban development tide hit the northern border of Plano and spilled into Frisco, sparking explosive growth into the 2000s. Like many of the cities in the northern suburbs of Dallas, Frisco serves as a bedroom community for many professionals who work in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. Since 2003, Frisco has received the designation "Tree City USA" by the National Arbor Day Foundation; when the Dallas area was being settled by American pioneers, many of the settlers traveled by wagon trains along the Shawnee Trail.
This trail became the Preston Trail, Preston Road. With all of this activity, the community of Lebanon was founded along this trail, was granted a U. S. post office in 1860. In 1902, a line of the St. Louis-San Francisco Railway was being built through the area, periodic watering stops were needed along the route for the steam locomotives; the current settlement of Lebanon was on the Preston Ridge and was therefore too high in elevation, so the watering stop was placed about four miles to the west on lower ground. A community grew around this train stop; some residents of Lebanon moved their houses to the new community on logs. The new town was named Emerson, but the U. S. Postal Service rejected the name as being too similar to another town in Texas. In 1904, the town's residents chose "Frisco City" in honor of the St. Louis–San Francisco Railway; this name was shortened to Frisco. In 1978, the first season of the hit show Dallas was filmed at Frisco's Cloyce Box Ranch, where the house on site was used as the Ewing family home.
This house burned down during renovations in 1987, the steel skeleton of the house still stands on today's Brinkmann Ranch, now the largest family owned estate in Frisco.
