  • LULAC V. CSS and Life

    I entered the United States without inspection in 1980; left the U.S in Nov 1983 and came back after one month with student visa in Oct 1983.
    I applied for the late amnesty back in 1990 as a LULAC and paid $185 fee. Last year I received my file under FOIA and found out that the INS marked my case as CSS. How do you think this will effect my case? Can I change my case to LULAC? How is being a CSS not LULAC will effect my pending Life Legalization. Please advice.

    CSS CASE: This case deals with immigrants who briefly traveled outside the United States for innocent reasons between May 4, 1987 and May 4, 1988 without permission from the INS (Such permission is called advance parole.

    LULAC cases: class member are all person eligible for legalization who traveled outside the U.S. between January 1, 1982 and November 6, 1986 improperly using some type of documentation (returned with a non-immigrant visa without disclosing they were living permanently in the U.S. or working without INS permission, etc)

        Under LIFE Act, it does not matter at all if you are a CSS or a LULAC member.

          Lee,

          LIFE ACT, anybody that filed for classmembership before Oct 2000.

          You file under LIFE and if you do not qualify under LIFE the INS will see whether you qualify under LULAC or CSS . In stead of getting permanent residence (LIFE) you first get temporary residency.

          Another question I have, my family are LULAC classmembers and applied also back in 1990. We filed a FOIA and in there it states a change of adjustment to temporary resident in 1990 and then again another renewal of that in 1991 with an experation date of 1992. Then no more because by then the Supreme court had decided that only people that were class 1 members could apply for late amnesty. Do you have same thing happening to you ?
          I have filed Nov 2001 under LIFE, file transferred Feb 2002 to local district and still waiting for interview.

              You were marked CSS because you entered without inspection
