Thread: CAN A PERSON BE DETAINED AT AN INS INTERVIEW FOR A BENEFIT?

  1. #1

    Let's say you're applying for Green Card, you've everything in order, but INS thinks you do not. For instance, you have been illegally in the U.S. and/or have a criminal conviction on your record and INS decides not to make a decision on your application that very day. Can they handcuff you right away and detain, in addition?

    if a person is "removable" or was "inadmissable", poses any threat (real or assumed) to national security or society in general; most certainly yes!

    I have heard that INS usually never says right away to a person to whom is not ready to grant the green card that they are being denied permanent residency. Usually they conduct further investigations before finally deciding whether they will deny the application or not. If they decide to deny the application they sent a letter to your home saying so and the grounds for denial. At this time they may initiate deportation proceedings against you and you will be mailed an NTA to which you can respond in immigration court, if you wish to.

    To this date, detentions during AOS green card interviews are not heard. If INS will act the same way is acting towards Muslim persons going to special register, that is another issue.

    Indians though are likely to be treated good as they are "yes-sir" with the white man.

    Only if a person is stupid enough to go to an INS interview while having for instance a felony conviction on his record (although not all the time felonies disqualify some from being granted PR,) or being on some terrorists list.
