JUNE 12 2014...LETTER FROM MY HUSBAND TO IMMIGRATION VIA GOOGLE+:
I am Egyptian and I am a Muslim
I married from American woman on September 2010. I met my wife since November 2008. Since that time we talk to each other every day until the time came to get married. We love each other and we don’t care about she live in America and I live in Egypt. Until the time came and my wife started to file the paper to immigration and they approved our papers and immigration sent the papers to American embassy in Egypt. I thought that everything will be alright after that but inside was the beginning of our suffering with American embassy in Cairo.
I had first interview on January 2 2012 inside the embassy. The officer was American woman, she asked me questions and I answered her. She asked me about my divorce I told her about my divorce was in May 2008. She told me I will check on you, I told her you’re welcome to check. I left the embassy. After that interview 2 days I found some one called my phone home and he said I'm from DHL, my sister answered .I was busy talking to my wife online he asked her who are you, she told him I am Mr. Samy sister and he wanted to know the address and then the call finished. My sister told me someone from DHL just called. I called him back to ask him about where is he to go to meet him but he told me I am coming to your home. The only DHL I am waiting for is from American embassy to get my paper and my visa. This man he wasn't from DHL as he said, he was investigator from American embassy. He didn’t show me any id but I found his act like someone do illegal act. I wanted to welcome him by Pepsi or tea as we meet guest inside our home but he was stressed. He asked me to check my house inside but I refused in the beginning but he asked me to show him my original divorce. I brought it to him, he took information from the divorce then asked me about my wife and how I meet her and she was happy in Egypt and asked me about my family in America I told him I have there 2 sisters and 1 brother . I told him they living there since over 30 years. Then he asked me again to check my house inside and I accepted. He checked inside but in my bed room he asked me to open the closet but I refused. He left my home. Then I waited to get any response from the embassy but no way. My wife emailed the congress office and she explain the situation. We found the embassy after 5 months and after congress email the embassy 6 days later they then called me to give me appointment. I went to the embassy that second interview May 15 2011. I found the same officer who I met with on the first interview in the embassy. She look at me so bad and said good morning, I said good morning. Then she told me we sent someone to your home and he found you living with another Egyptian woman, you are liar. I told her the woman who answered the phone was my sister. She told me your sisters living in America. I told her I have sister here in Egypt she keep saying liar, I told her I am not liar. The officer threatened me by saying I will make sure that you will not go inside united states to see your wife ever, I told her go ahead.
She treated with me like I was a criminal and guilty. She sees that I am guilty because I married from American woman. I waited until she gave me the refusal paper, after that she fired me by saying bye. I left American embassy that day I felt that I lost my dignity and respect. Then I back home. I got sick for over one week because I felt that I am nothing in the life and I lost myself when I went to the embassy and that officer treated me that way inside the embassy.
After that the papers back to immigration with accusations as I am living with another Egyptian woman and I back to my ex. The man from the embassy said he found in my bed room a woman perfume and makeup things like that . I found I have to respond on all accusations one by one by official evidence. First I sent to immigration my sister here in EGYPT her birth certificate with translation and stamped from the government then from the civil status authority in the ministry of interior paper to show immigration that when I married first marriage then when i got baby then when I divorced then and when I married second marriage from Janet, American woman. If I marry from 2 wives that paper from the government will show that in the information but just one wife it shows. I showed immigration why I refused to open the closet in my bed room by pictures because Janet, my wife, before she back to USA, she left her clothes inside it. Is not easy here in Egypt or any country to show strange man your wife clothes. After immigration got all the evidence from me they accepted the paper again and back the paper to the embassy. Thanks GOD.
Then after the paper sent to the embassy I waited until I found someone from American embassy called me and told me to send my passport and medical examination and police report by DHL to the embassy then he told me in the phone to hold on then he told me you have to come to the embassy to sign on file ds230. He told me after you prepare you papers call the embassy to get interview. I did then I called American embassy to get an interview it was June 13- 2013.
It came the interview day. Ohhh my god I went to meet the officer he was another one man this time. He asked my to tell him about all my family in America and Egypt brothers and sisters, when they married, who they married, their kids and I answered him he was like some one refresh my memory about my family. The last question he asked me when the last time your wife came to visit you? I told him since October 2010 I tried to explain to him why she couldn’t back to EGYPT after that time . honestly he don’t need to ask me that question because he already staying in Egypt and he see it happened revolution in Egypt and the life here it is not safe to come. So it was only question to ask me about my wife when the last time your wife came to visit you? After that he told me it happened revoke from the embassy before and I will do. So I waited to get the reason of his revoke he gave me paper it say the embassy see that the relation between me and my wife not valid or true. I told the officer by the way you did not ask me about my wife to know the relationship is valid or true. He look at me nervous and he told me bye bye with out gave me any chance to explain anything. The interview honestly it was like between a police officer and criminal all I have to do not talk any more to gave him a good chance to finish me and my case or fire me and my case from the embassy to immigration. I left the embassy. The paper back to immigration we found the same accusation I am living with another egyptian women even I before proved by everything right that I am not living with another woman but they back to accuse me BY THE WAY THE EMBASSY DON’T HAVE ANY EVEDINCE ABOUT THE ACCUSATION BUT I SHOWED IMMIGRATION BEFORE THE OFFICIAL EVIDENCE FROM THE GOVERNEMENT AND THEY APPROVED WHY IMMGRATION BACK AGAIN TO ACCUSE ME ????
Finally while my wife with me in Egypt this past December 2013, USCIS revoked our petition without any reason. Any way the people as American and egyptian they scream from American embassy in Egypt and their officers.
If you want to read different stories go to visa journey . I guess if I want to go to the moon it will be easier than going to USA.
I have 2 sisters and 1 brother living in America since over 30 years and if I wanted to go there it was so easy for them to file papers to me but I don’t know one day I will marry from American woman or one day I have to meet her family there. Any way I am not criminal. I graduated from the University of Cairo. Then I worked as a French teacher in high school for over 15 years and then I work as a media editor.
I just do not understand what gives the officers the right to treat anyone who comes in the embassy like criminals?
What gives them the right to call people liars when they do not even give them the chance to talk about anything? They automatically are convinced everyone is a liar and treat people like criminals and take away their dignity and no respect for anyone who comes in the embassy.
WHERE IS THE DIGNITY AND RESPECT THEY CLAIM ON THE EMBASSY WEBSITE THAT THEY GIVE ALL PEOPLE WHO COME IN THE EMBASSY.
I AM MARRIED TO A WONDERFUL MAN FROM EGYPT THAT HAS VALUES AND LIVES HIS LIFE BY THE WAY GOD (ALLAH) INTENDED PEOPLE TO LIVE. WE HAVE A STRONG AND GREAT MARRIAGE. I HAVE A BEAUTIFUL STEPDAUGHTER.
I AM A GOOD PERSON AND FAIR WHEN LISTENING TO OTHERS. BUT WHEN IT COMES TO ANYONE PASSING JUDGEMENT ON MY HUSBAND I WILL NOT TOLERATE THAT. ME AND MY HUSBAND HAVE BEEN TOGETHER FOR ALMOST 5 YRS, THE FIRST 2 YRS WE WERE ENGAGED AND NOW COME SEPTEMBER WILL BE 3 YRS OF MARRIAGE.
AS OF TODAY, MAY 1 2013 WE ARE STILL WAITING TO HEAR FROM THE EMBASSY IN CAIRO ON WHEN THEY WILL PROCESS MY HUSBANDS VISA.
WE HAVE BEEN ON A VERY LONG JOURNEY STARTING IN OCTOBER 29 2010 AND HAVE BEEN BACK AND FORTH WITH USCIS AND EMBASSY SINCE THEN.
I HAVE ALSO SEEN ALOT ON HERE WHERE PEOPLE HAVE SUCH GREAT LUCK IN THEIR JOURNEYS. I AM TRYING TO BE STRONG AND BELIEVE THAT SOON IT WILL HAPPEN FOR US TOO.
WE HAVE NOTHING WRONG WITH OUR PAPERS AND WE WILL FIGHT TIL THE END. UNTIL MY HUSBAND HAS HIS VISA!!!
HE DESERVES TO COME AND BUILD A LIFE FOR ME AND HIS DAUGHTER.
I WILL FIGHT THE FIGHT TO BRING MY HUSBAND BESIDE ME IN USA. HE DESERVES TO BE HERE AS WELL. JUST AS ANYONE WHO HAS BEEN HERE FOR MANY YEARS.
ALWAYS WHEN SOMEONE IS TRYING TO DO THE RIGHT IN LIFE, LIFE SMACKS THEM IN THE FACE FOR NO REASON AT ALL.
THEY NEED TO STOP CATERING TO ALL THE ONES WHO DONT HAVE PAPERS AND THE ONES WHO ARE TRYING TO BE HERE THE RIGHT WAY, THE LEGAL WAY, NEEDS TO BE TAKEN CARE OF BETTER.
WHEN PEOPLE HAVE NO BAD ON THEIR RECORDS, WHY MAKE THEM WAIT AND GO THRU ALL THE MISERY JUST TO BE TOLD THEY CANT BE HERE.
SINCE WHEN DOES IT MEAN BECAUSE 2 PEOPLE FROM DIFFERENT COUNTRIES FALL IN LOVE AND TRYING TO BE TOGETHER BECAUSE THINGS IN THAT ONE COUNTRY IS UNSTABLE AND NOT FIT FOR PEOPLE TO TRY AND HAVE A LIFE,

Samy and I met november 2008. I was having a hard time before i met him. So when i met my husband back then i saw my life change for the better. i had to fight a divorce here for almost 2 yrs but when i did i hopped on the first plane and went to egypt to finally secure my future with the best man Allah had ever sent to me.
he is so kind and wonderful and i dont ever want to know what life is like without him ever.
we got married september 2010 and i came back to USA and filed his papers to bring him here.
January 2 2012 he had his interview and we are still waiting as of today!
November 30 2012 and we are still hanging in the balance of waiting to see what will happen next.
Here it is March 2013 and we are waiting to hear from the Dept of State because we got reaffirmed March 14 2013.
TODAY MARCH 25 2013, NVC got papers from USCIS and will recheck the translations before shipping off to the embassy again, like santa clause, made a list and check it twice, we are always on the nice list!...lol
HERE WE SIT AFTE RBEING REAFFIRMED BACK IN MARCH 2013 AND BACK TO THE EMBASSY IN CAIRO JUST TO BE SENT BACK AGAIN TO USCIS FOR REVIEW AGAIN. AS OF JULY 31 2013 WE SIT AT USCIS IN INITIAL REVIEW BUT IN THE MEAN TIME I WILL GO TO EGYPT AND SPEND TIME WITH MY HUSBAND AND FAMILY.
IN THE PAST, IF IT WASNT SITTING HERE WAITING FOR ANY WORD FROM USCIS AND DEAL WITH ANY REQUEST TO COME MY WAY FROM THEM STOPPING ME FROM GOING, IT WAS ANY UNREST AND PROBLEMS THERE IN EGYPT THAT KEPT ME HERE. BUT NOT ANYMORE, I WILL DO WHAT I HAVE TO SO TO PROVE OUR RELATIONSHIP IS SO TRUE AND SO VALID!
