  • Late Amnesty/LULAC---STATUS APPROVED!!!!

    Hi all:

    I wish to share this great news with all of you. MY LULAC/LATE AMNESTY CASE HAS BEEN APPROVED!!!!!

    My case is LULAC Class 1.

    Details as such:

    1) February 2001--sent in Legalization Questionaire to Vermont Center because I could not qualify under the LIFE ACT. I have not had written proof of class membership prior to October 2000. Never had a work permit before.

    2) October 2001--Vermont Service Center approved my legalization questionaire because I proof that I was front desked in 1987. I was instructed to apply for adjustment of status using the I-687 Form provided by the Vermont Service Center.

    3) May 2002--I applied according to their instructions. I had to send my application package to TEXAS SERVICE CENTER.

    4) June 2002--received letter for finger printing.

    5) October 2002--received my first EAD, valid for 1 year from Texas Center.

    6) December 2002--received a letter REQUEST FOR EVIDENCE from Texas Center. Letter indicated two things were needed:

    a) two photos--green card format

    b) a list of all the countries that I have been to since 1981 when I first arrived in the US.

    7) February 2003--I sent back the photos and a list of the countries I have been to since 1981.

    8) May 2003--I received a Receipt for EAD renewal application from BCIS from Texas Center. I did not apply because my original EAD was still good for another 6 months.

    9) Less than two weeks later (late May 2003), I checked my online status using the new EAD receipt number--my EAD was approved.

    10) Received my automatic EAD RENEWAL--valid from 05/03 thru 05/07. SURPRISED!!! A note also said that I can travel with this EAD.

    11) 2nd week of June--again I went online to check status on my I-687 application (adjustment to temporary residence)--SURPRISED SURPRISED!!!

    IT SAYS---I687 APPLICATION APPROVED!!!!

    I still cannot believe it-- DID NOT DARE POST HERE, only told a few LULAC/CSS people I kept in touch with.

    On Friday, June 20 , 03, I received a letter from BCIS TEXAS CENTER--stating that my application for adjustment of status has been approved, and that I can now travel outside the US. I can use my new EAD CARD and the green letter they sent me (a letter showing my A#, name, etc...with a photo attached) to re-enter the US.

    WOW!!! My process was very smooth, very easy from beginning--all the way. No interview--NOTHING!!!

    I want to thank everyone for helping, for encouraging and for sharing all your experiences.

    It has been a very very long ride for us all. Keep all your hopes up--you will get adjusted also. My prayers are still with all of you who are waiting. I will keep looking on this board for all your good news!!!

    Good luck everyone, keep praying!!!! Your day of adjustments will come soon.

              Hi GUEST 2:

              In your post, you mentioned you could not be qualify under the LIFE ACT.
              Can you please tell me why you are not qualifying under the LIFE ACT, but you are qualifying under the old Amnesty program? I appreciate your response.

                Individuals who meet the U.S. residency requirements and who, before October 1, 2000, filed a written claim for class membership in any of the lawsuits, are eligible to apply for adjustment of their legal status under the LIFE Act Legalization provision.
                Guest2 did not apply before oct. 1 2000. Therefore, he was not eligible to apply under the Life Act, Sam; am I right guest2?

                  To everyone:
                  Thanks for all your well wishes.

                  To Guest:
                  I came to US in 1981 under F1 visa, worked without permission since 1981. Went out of country in 1984 briefly and returned with new F1 visa. That's LULAC class 1.

                  To Sam:
                  Never had a work permit or applied for class membership prior to October 2000---so cannot qualify under LIFE ACT.

                  To Rafi:
                  You are absolutely correct in your explanation of "why 1986 Amnesty" and Not "Life ACT".

                    Congrats, Guest2. Do you have an Attorney? and what kind of papers you produced to INS?


                    Thanks
                    MIKE

                      Guest 2:

                      Thanks for the Prompt reply. When you reentered in 1984 with a new F1 visa, did you actually attended school?

                      Thanks for your help and best wishes.

                        To Mike:
                        I did not have an attorney. I talked to several attorneys who think they know about the Late Amnesty/LULAC/CSS cases--but they have no knowledge at all on the details of these cases. So rather than wasting my money on them, I educated myself on the cases and then did my own filing. Who would have known my case better than myself.

                        Produced every piece of paper and records that I could find all the way back to 1981. Old driver's licenses, school records, Social security earnings, taxes, letters, rent receipts, old addresses, car insurances, letters from employers, paystubs, affidavits from people I know from those years, etc...

                        To Guest:
                        When I re-entered the US in 1984 on a new F1 visa, yes, I did keep my student status. But I also worked without permission during that time.

                          In my opnion, people who does not know how to read, or follow instractions, or lack of logical thinking only those people should have a immigration lawyer.

                              you said you violate your statues by working without permission, do you have a W-2 or you file for taxes from 1981-88 or you just give the INS a letter from your employer. Thanks
