IIRC A few years ago a gent former USMC brought his Ukraine Finace over via Mexico and married her with a US Judge on the middle of the El Paso Walking Bridge and because the US Judge conducted the Ceremony she was elegible for a US Green Card via little known PiP rules in about 3 days to one week later so she could both work and travel to visit family right away - he owned a successful Auto Dealership and the entire PiP and Green Card process was not to pricey as PiP was designed to reduce stress on Active Duty Military and Veterans Family Formation as happy MilVet families are a strong source of Patriot future MilVets like ME.
Curious if anyone has used this mechanism since and current status?

Definition of parole (Entry 2 of 2)
: to release (a prisoner) on parolehttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dowry
A dowry is the transfer of parental property to a daughter at her marriage (i.e. 'inter vivos') rather than at the owner's death (mortis causa). A dowry establishes a type of conjugal fund, the nature of which may vary widely. This fund may provide an element of financial security in widowhood or against a negligent husband, and may eventually go to provide for her children. Dowries may also go toward establishing a marital household, and therefore might include furnishings such as linens and furniture.
Locally, dowry is called dahej in Hindi, varadhachanai in Tamil, jehaz in Urdu and Arabic, joutuk in Bengali, jiazhuang in Mandarin, çeyiz in Turkish, dot in French, daijoin Nepali, and in various parts of Africa as serotwana, idana, saduquat, or mugtaf.https://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/trumps-border-security-order-may-end-parole-in-place-program-for-military-families.html
Trump's Border Security Order May End Parole in Place Program for Military Families
Executive order undermines use of parole as a means of attaining a temporary right to be in the U.S.

Back in 2013, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) set up a method meant to ease the way to a U.S. green card for unlawfully present spouses, parents, and ummarried minor children of U.S. citizen members of the U.S. military (current or past).
Called “parole in place” (or PIP), this new procedural avenue was meant to allow people who already qualified for a U.S. green card based on their family relationship to “adjust status”—that is, apply for lawful permanent residence or a green card—without leaving the United States, despite their past unlawful entry and stay.
The reason this was important was (as described in Adjustment of Status via "Parole in Place" for Family Members of U.S. Citizens in Military) that the majority of immigrating family members who entered the U.S. illegally (without a visa or other form of permission) will need to leave the U.S. for “consular processing” in order to complete their application for a U.S. green card. But when they get to the consulate, they might face a three- or ten-year bar upon return, as a penalty for their past unlawful presence.
This trap prevented many noncitizen family members of U.S. military servicepeople from applying for a green card in the past. (A so-called "provisional waiver" might help avoid problems at the consulate, but not everyone is able to prove the level of hardship that is required to be approved for the waiver.)
Now in 2017, however, the PIP policy faces an uncertain future. One of the executive orders issued by Donald J. Trump (the one titled “Executive Order: Border Security and Immigration Enforcement Improvements”) says that no form of parole should be granted on an across-the-board basis. Many analysts are concerned that this will spell the end of PIP.
(See, for example, this San Diego Tribune opinion piece, "Trump order drops protection for families of deployed military.")
It's important to realize that the Trump administration has not, as of this writing, definitively said that it would end PIP. Many types of parole exist--it's questionable whether the people who wrote the order even realized that this category existed and its importance for military families.
Nevertheless, if you are about to apply for PIP, consult an attorney before taking the risk of being arrested and deported.
