  • Revised FBI name check policy & USCIS's cowardice

    Dear Forum Members,

    Following the good news on FBI name check policy, I thought USCIS would follow up on its promise of processing my green card and my approved I-485 application that has been pending the FBI clearance for many years now.

    I filed for adjustment of status through the Legalization provision of the LIFE Act. I had my interview four years ago and the interviewing adjudications officer approved my case and told me that my green card would be processed once the FBI clearance was received.

    My case has been pending the FBI clearance until now. Every time I contacted USCIS and the officer in charge of my case, I was told that the only issue was the FBI name check.

    Now that the new policy on the FBI name check has been issued, I have received a letter telling me of USCIS's intent to deny my case for adjustment of status.

    I have been waiting for four years after my interview and now that the FBI name check is out of the picture, instead of issuing my green card, all of a sudden USCIS has decided to deny my application on baseless grounds. Why did they wait this long and suddenly decided to deny my case?! Why did they tell me that my case was only pending the FBI name check for all these four years. Why did they ask me to be fingerprinted for the FBI name check after my interview if they thought that I did not qualify as a LIFE Legalization applicant? Why did the interviewing officer tell me that my case had been approved (he told me not once, but many, many times over these past four years).

    USCIS thinks it can do whatever it wishes and pleases. They will do anything possible including lying, twisting and bending laws and due process, and manipulating applicants to reject as many applications as they can. They used us only as a money milking machine over all these years that our applications had been pending – the longer we waited, the more we paid. These people have no conscience. I do not know how these people can sleep at night without their conscience bothering them. This is another classic example of unchecked power gone way beyond corruption.

      Firstly, welcome to the forum, MaheshG90! What reason did they give for your denial? Tell us more and perhaps someone here will be able to help?

        As USC said you need to give us more info as to why they are going to deny you.

          They claim that one of my absences from the U.S. was more than 45 days. On the day of the interview, I explained my situation to the interviewing officer and told him the due to emergent reasons, my return to the United States could not be accomplished within the time period allowed and he accepted my reason and asked me to pay a fee on the same day so that he could waive that requirement. I did pay the fee and I was told that my case would be approved.

            Hi MaheshG90 - did you get it in writing - when they told you your case would be approved?

              Hi ProudUSC,

              No, they never put anything in writing. He told me that my case would be approved because I otherwise satisfied all the requirements of the Legalization. My big question is why they waited four years and then two weeks after the new FBI name check policy was issued, they changed their word and decided to deny my case????

                Hi MaheshG90,

                Have you scheduled an Infopass to try and find out why you were denied?

                  I have been given 30 days (actually 20 days since the time I received the letter) to appeal. I am going to hire an attorney and let him take care of it.

                      Thanks. Yes, I will try to find a good attorney, but, it will cost me a lot of money and time.

                        MaheshG90 - here's hoping that the time and money you need to spend are worth it. Shop around - there are alot of worthless, greedy lawyers out there, my friend. I hope you can get a good recommendation for one in your area who will have only good intentions to help you.

                          MaheshG90,

                          My friend, the USCIS is a rouge agency that operates much differently than any other part of the US Government. Especially the part of the CIS that handles cases like yours, and does not deal with the American public. They literally have a "licence to play God."

                          Never forget that you are an alien, and that makes you much lower than a dog in the United States. There are many laws that protect dogs.

                          Once the USCIS decides that they don't like you. (for whatever reason or non-reason) (maybe you just inquired one too many times?) you have zero chance. Because they are the prosecution, the Judge, and the Jury. The USCIS is un-checked, and totally unaccountable. Who are you going to complain to???

                          Their conscience? Are you kidding? Illegal aliens flew planes into the world trade center, you are an illegal alien regardless of your pending case. Period! You have broken US sovereignty laws and this is war time. If your immigration officer deports you, he has done a good deed for his Country. If he needs to manufacture a lie in order to get rid of you. Good. He will not even be asked to substantiate that lie. The lie, no matter how ridicules and impossible will stand!!! You could then be arrested, stripped naked, incarcerated for months or years, and returned to your home Country in shackles. At that point you will be in big trouble with your home Country also. It does not matter how much money you have, or how smart you are. In fact if your smart and the CIS knows it, your problems are 1000 times worse because you become sport.

                          Your heartaches are just beginning. By this time next year you will be happy to depart the USA on your own volition.

                          Trust me, I'm one year ahead of you.

                          PS &gt; The lawyer's job is to extract money from you. Plenty of money!! It's too late for a lawyer to help at this point.

                            One more point. Had you hired a competent attorney from the very beginning, you'd more than likely have a green card in your wallet today. The USCIS does not play too many games with attorney's, that's because it involves going to court and that's too much hassle.

                            But when you go in on your own, God help ya. The very same case with the very same facts, very different outcomes. The USCIS bullies the vulnerable, especially if your intelligent and deemed a challenge.

                            (sport fishermen can't be bothered with small fish, but love to catch the big ones that put up a good fight. If they can't pull you in the boat with the fishing rod, they'll pull out a rifle and shoot you, then pull you in the boat)

                              Let me clarify one point.

                              The USCIS is not set up to be corrupt, and does not have intentions of doing underhanded things. It is intended to be honest and straightforward. The problem is disorganization, limited resources, lack of supervision, and the new extended power that has been bestowed upon the Department of Homeland Security. Therefore you could wind up with somebody with barely a high school diploma, and a blue collar (bigot) mentality making final decisions over your life. That person has a tremendous amount of power and sometimes gets off on watching people sweat and tremble while in his presents. (an ego trip) The longer this kind of person has this job, the more comfortable he gets with doing bad things. After all, he is dealing with illegal aliens and all illegal alien are criminals, right. Who cares what happens to them. Certainly not the CIS.

                              If he should find that you are not intimidated by him, or should see something in you that makes him jealous. Your dead.

                              If you're going to attempt this without a lawyer, you'd better be ugly, stupid, and very, very respectful.
