Lance thinks the interviewer has never seen an I-601 waiver before, but even that doesn’t excuse such a poorly made and rationalized decision. Graciela was horrified by denial in itself, how could they possible justify such an appalling decision? Gather round friends and neighbors and let me explain something to you: immigration is an arm of the government that is not well trained, has no concrete set of rules, and no one appears to be looking over their shoulder. They have the power to detain and deport people at will, and have been known to ‘accidently’ deport American Citizens when it suits them. You know that ‘line’ that our spouses were supposed to get in? It only exists in the narrow minds of the anti-immigration political candidates. Have they ever looked at the processing times for the different applications?
If the petitioner isn’t a US Citizen, you will be waiting between 1 to 2 years for the initial visa appointment.
I pretty upset so I think I should just go to bed.
