Thread: My EOIR issued GC....!

  1. #1
    I'm back...had a good time spending with family and friends in Germany.

    On my way back in from Toronto, CAN my photo and my fingerprints where taken by USCIS. They, apparently couldn't verify my residency in their systems which caused me to be held up by them. I was ordered to the back to talk to some other officers there...again, photo and fingerprints taken then waiting for about 2 hours. Missed my connecting flight to Philadelphia in the process...I was angry. After about 2 hours my luggage was searched...of course I had nothing for them....my passport was stamped and I was free to go. The officer told me that the USCIS/EOIR computer systems are separate systems....which caused the delay. Upon my question whether this is now going to happen every time I travel he said perhaps, perhaps not...depends on the experience of the officers.

    Anyway, I had a good time and I am happy to be back.

    Good to see you back Koller, shame about the screw up on re-entry. Seems odd they couldn't verify you, especially since you now have your GC. Inexcusable that the two computer systems aren't linked together. They've had nearly 10 years since 911 to do that.

    Kollerkrot: Why were you "angry?" I don't know your whole story (and you do seem like a nice person)...but, you obviously didn't receive your green card by the normal process.

    Perhaps Americans should be "angry" that you were an illegal alien for a long time...or would you consider that to be unreasonable?

    ...and, as usual, I see that Brit is bashing America!

    Obviously, in your book, contrary to the rest of the worlds opinion, a corrected mistake is still a mistake! Well then, eat your heart out, SunDevil!!

    ...and as usual, I see SunDevilUSA bashing Brit and me for pointing out the imperfections. What's wrong with wanting to be perfect?

    Koller, it was CBP, not USCIS, who took your photo and fingerprints, at the Toronto Pre-Inspection Port of Entry. Interesting that it took so long. You should be in USVISIT and have no delay.

    What's the main point between Koller, an LPR, going thru a reentry hitch (some are getting denied entry by mistake even) and a USC being deported?

    It's DHS personnel striving to do a good job - erring on the side of caution. But that's not the general rule. More of a few exceptions - a non-issue.

    But for 'shallows' like IdiotSunDevil, it is.

    Things have tightened up at all airports and ports of entry. Those new screening machines where nothing is hidden from view are one of the latest. To have that level of an invasive procedure regulating movement seems overdone unless there is knowledge being kept far removed from the public.

    In any event, welcome back Koller.
