Default Residency requirements .....

Hello guys ,
Some residency programs mention that IMGs need to have-
1. US permanent resident
2. US citizenship
Is it possible for a fresh IMG to fullfill these criterias ?
And if , for instance , these are not achieved , are programs flexible w.r.t. these two things for IMGs ?
Would it be a better option asking the programs about this directly ?

You have probably missed the second part of the question.
All i want to know is wether residency programs overlook the citizenship criteria if the candidate's credentials are impressive ?

Mostly, no. Some places might but programs that say that they prefer citizens don't want to deal with visa issues.
