  • yesterday's Experience at Immigration

    Yesterday, I went to immigration to translate an I-485 interview for a wife of a Permanent Resident. The interview proceeded well and the adjunction officer stated that her file was in order and ready to approve, but due to an email that the seattle uscis office received from Washington D. C. yesterday morning, Feb 14th, was unable to finalize and approve her residency. Said that the email was vague, but that they were instructed to hold all files and approvals on applications of all immigrants that had intered "Without Inspection." He could not tell us anything else. Here set my client that has waited since Feb, 2001 and has paid all fees as instructed,including the I-485A fine, went to final interview, to no avail...does anyone out there know what is going on... thanks for any information available!

    ...well, if your client hadn't believed herself to be way too important to follow the rules in the first place, she wouldn't be in this situation. Furthermore, she has lived in America for at least seven years...and she still requires a translator?

        it's obvious that Shady has no clue about our immigration laws nor has she any patrioitism...nor does she have any control over who posts what...sorry Shady but you are not the Grand Poo bah of this site...you couldn't find your size 18 behind with a 4 person search party...so your opinions about what any of us post are as worthless as last week's kleenex.....study up on the INA ....maybe you'll learn something (of course, there are a lot of big words in this set of laws, so you'll need an adult to read these words to you and try to explain their meanings to you as well..)...and just how do you "know' that everything will be 'ok?' Are you an employee of USCIS? I doubt you could pass the postal exam....

            Sounds like an administrative hold and USCIS is experiencing again political pressure not to approve green card petitions for one reason or another. If your client completed all the requirements under the law, then it is only a waiting game until the political wrangling is over.

              Thank you Hudson for your sound advice. Shady, I also appreciate your encouragement. To Sundevil, the reality is that illegal immigration has happened, that these people give up everything that they have, know and understand to come North so that they can survive! I would like to see what you would do if you could not feed your children, or yourself for that matter. Until Mexico, and other countries, get their stuff together, people will do whatever it takes. Including you. Also, if you would read the scripture, you would understand that we are to openly accept and love those who are "aliens" in our midst....Also, they have followed the rules and paid out big money to be considered "legal", including the fine of 1,000.00$ as a token of their offense. Without their hard work, we as whole, would not be able to maintain the standard of living that we as Americans, have came to expect. I would like to see you out in the field at 100 degree weather, bent over picking tomatoes! For the work that they do and the sacrifices they have made, they deserve our respect! this post is for assistance and direction. do not cheapen it by verbal insults and ignorant imputs please, or it is not worth being on! Not judging, just the peace would be so much more beneficial to all who are dealing with this political time bomb!

              Blessings,

              Spirit1

                    You don't need to go to college to learn the language, especially if you live in the country where this language is spoken (esp.for 7 years)You just need a desire to learn. Besides, English is not that difficult to learn enough to understand and make yourself understood.It took me 3-4 years to become fluent from speaking zero English and pass a TOEFL.Although i did take classes, but many of my peers that were taking the classes didn't pass it and are not fluent. I learned it mostly from reading books in English, talking to other people (in English)and studiying the textbooks by myself at home. Sorry if i sound full of myself. I just hate it when i go to the store and the language that i learned to freely communicate in this country apparently is not useful, because the person only speaks Spanish. There is nothing wrong with Spanish, except US is an English speaking country.

                      If the OP hasn't figured out yet what's happening, here's a little update about the same matter off the grapevine: (Unfortunately, the "VAWA self-petitioner" aspect of the case was left out by the OP).

                      This is an excerpt from one reliable source informing another, that indeed such an "e-mail" was sent out, and I quote a part of it:

                      "We've recently learned from the ... to End Violence Against Immigrant Women and the National Immigration Project that USCIS has sent an e-mail instructing district offices to hold in abeyance all applications for adjustment of status for VAWA self-petitioners who entered without inspection. ...

                      ... has been working with the National Network and the ... on the issue of VAWA EWI adjustments and is considering litigation if this issue cannot be resolved favorably. We'll be sure to keep you posted about any developments. Thanks!"


                      More updates will be posted depending on earliest availability. Stay tuned!

                        As I promised, here's the latest on the subject. - RN

                        VAWA-EWI AOS Memo

                        "Adjustment of status for VAWA self- petitioner who is present without inspection; Revision of Adjudicator's Field Manual (AFM) Chapter 23.5, (AFM Update AD 08-16) - "This memorandum provides guidance to USCIS adjudicators for adjudicating adjustment of status applications filed by VAWA self-petitioners who are present in the United States without having been inspected and admitted or paroled." USCIS, Apr. 11, 2008."
