This request is too vague to receive any meaningful results - and sounds too much like you're demaning someone offer you a job sight-unseen.

The short answer is that there are research opportunities throughout the US all the time, and many of them are filled by foreign individuals. Whether or not one of those positions is available to you is something that will have to be determined by you finding potential opportunities and discussing them with the PI.

If you have specific questions about the process, we are available to offer our advice. We are NOT, however, here to do your job hunting for you!
