Thread: Revised FBI name check policy & USCIS's cowardice

  1. #1
    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?

  7. #7
    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?

  9. #9
    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.

    MaheshG90 - I hope you found a good attorney. I wish you the very best of luck!!!! Come back and keep us informed of your progress, okay?
