Immigration processes rely heavily on intent.
It’s imperative for the TN holder to have the intent of returning to his home country while a green card holder should have the intent to stay in the US. Having a TN visa doesn’t mean that you can’t get a green card, but your situation will be heavily scrutinized.
Depending on your situation, you may be eligible for a different kind of visa (think H1-B or E-2) that could move you towards obtaining a green card without having your intent misunderstood.
