A: This is not my practice area, neither I am in New Mexico. But you should reach out to the New Mexico Aging and Long Term Services Department. https://www.nmaging.state.nm.us/our-services.aspx
It will likely take more time than you envision, so it may prove best to avoid. You may find it easier and more cost effective to hire someone who is a U.S. citizens, permanent resident, or who has employment authorization that can be renewed.
As a result, I strongly recommend an appointment with a competent, ethical, and experienced immigration attorney who can explain the current challenges, but research whether the candidate can somehow avoid a process known as labor certification.
