Thread: Friends papers were denied because of school paperwork mistake

  1. #1
    I have to admit I do not know a whole lot about immigration. However, a friend of mine has been in country for nearly 10 years, and turned 21 this past summer. He had been in school for three years before that. When he filed his paperwork, they at first missed his papers and finally got to them 2 months after they should have. So it had been 5 months from the time he sent his papers in before they got to it. Well, our school made a mistake on their paper work and had said that he was starting school after he turned 21, therefor makeing him "illegal" for the past 5 months instead of correctly saying he had been in school for several years. The school screwed him...

    He has been talking with a Lawyer, and they said that appeals have been 100% denied since 9/11 (He is from Argentina), so it would not do any good to appeal. She also said that it would make him a "blip" on thier radar so if he is planning on staying until he gets married it is best not to appeal.

    So the question is, is she correct, are they denying all appeals even though there was an error in the paperwork on the schools part in which they have paper work to prove they were wrong? (school transcripts). Also, what else can he do? He has until the third week in January to get this sorted out before he is expected to be gone?

    Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

    His lawyer and school did not screw him; he screwed himself by being here illegally; no matter what the school or lawyer did or could do would not change that fact

    another tiresome refrain from some visa-cheating illegal...."waa waaa waa it's someone else's fault.....it's not my fault....waa.waa.waa"
    go back to Argentina and stop whining.....this visacheat's problems began when he and his irresponsible family decided to ignore US laws and rules.....and now these same 'pendejos' want to blame our system for their own transgressions....man, do I hope this new bill passes and that soon afterwards, scam artists like these and their families get the big BOOT back to wherever they came from.
    What is wrong with supporting American citizen students????? AFter all, they have a RIGHT to be in the US and should be given benefits ahead of any visa-cheating dirtbags that are unlawfully present (whining and crying) in the US.

    Ok, thanks for being mature about it... In case you didn't understand what I was saying, the school sends in their own paperwork, which was messed up, not him, but you already made up your mind. Thanks for acting like children

    How was he seeking to adjust?

    sorry Roland, but my interests are for American citizens, not visa cheats. I am not planning to lost a moment of sleep because some illegal alien visa cheat thinks he or she has been wronged.....this is the United States of America, not the Disunited Scamming States of Argentina

    How was he here legally before school? Was the school turning in paperwork for F-1?
