A lawful permanent resident (LPR) is a foreign national who has been granted the benefit of permanently living and working in the United States and has the ability to travel in and out of the U.S. If you would like to become an LPR based on the fact that you have a relative who is a U.S. citizen or LPR, your relative should file a petition to sponsor you.
USCIS must approve an immigrant visa petition. This petition is filed by the relative (sponsor) and must be accompanied by proof of a valid relationship between the U.S. citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident and the relative being sponsored for permanent residence.
