Thread: LULAC (Newman) Interview

  1. #1
    dear all:

    i would like to know if somebody who is in the same situation as i am would be able to help me on this one. if you are, or know something about what i should do about my situation, i would really appreciate your help.

    i applied for status as a temporary resident under the LULAC (Newman) settlement last august. i just received a letter today that my interview will be in september. i would like to know what i would be asked in the interview.

    i came to the US on a student visa in 1976. i worked without INS permission while i was a student from 1978 to 1982. i was working fulltime as a waiter in an indian restaurant when i should have been studying fulltime. i left for two weeks to india in may 1983 and came back to the US on a student visa.

    when i applied for amnesty in 1987, i was told that i was not eligible because i had left the US for the two weeks in may 1983 and had come back on a student visa. (my I-94 was valid for until 1988.) however, under the LULAC (Newman) settlement, i am now eligible to apply for temporary residency.

    what would i be asked during the interview?

    what should i bring to the interview? the letter told me to bring all the original documents that i had sent in as part of my application package.

    thank you in advance for your help.

    Hi
    I'm in the same situation with you but i am still waiting on my Temp. Employment card. Did you fill out the form to apply for the LULAC application yourself or your lawyer helped you? I wish you good luck and you can look at the previous discussion on the board about people that did the interview already. Good luck.

    hi abby,

    i used an immigration lawyer who helped me in filling out the application. he's a "newly-minted" immigration lawyer doing some pro bono work with the community that i live in. he's a great guy but he doesn't know too much about the LULAC (Newman) settlement so he told me to find out more about the interview in discussion board on this website.

    i applied last august and i had my fingerprints and picture taken in september. my EAD arrived in november. this was rather quick from what i was told. anyway, i finally got a letter the other day telling me that my interview would be coming up in september.

    an addendum to my previous note.

    the irony of this whole thing is that i also applied for LIFE in 2001 and i haven't heard anything to this date!

    when i look at my case status on the CIS website, it tells me that "my package is complete and my application is being processed." and it's been 4 years and counting!

    i applied for LULAC (Newman) settlement last year and i'm getting an interview a year later.

    this is so very strange.

    Thank you for the information. Will you be going with your lawyer for the interview? I will advise you go with your lawyer in case of any problem. Please let me know how the interview goes, so that i can get ready for mine. Don't worry about the LIFE, i heard nobody is getting any response from that. Take care and Good luck again.

    last month they sent a letter not enough info. to prove my case. Letter of deny.
    I applied for LULAC in October2004 got interviewed in July 17 2005 Another nice interview no answer. The agent told me I will have to wait until they put together all my file so once more i will be waiting pattiently.
