Cruise Experience with Advance Parole

Hey everyone,

I've been lurking on these forums for awhile and have use the information here to my advantage, so I figured I'd return the favor and possibly help someone else out.

My wife's I-485 application has been pending for nearly 2 years now (USCIS lost the application when we moved and we had to go through our Senator to find a solution). We didn't apply for AP originally because we expected a relatively quick adjustment timeline and didn't have any immediate travel needs. This summer we decided we were sick of waiting and wanted to travel. So we sent in the AP application in July and received the document in about 3 weeks (super fast!).

Similar to most of the experiences on here, we were nervous to use the AP but decided to book a cruise with some friends. It took us a few extra minutes to board at the cruise terminal (Miami) because the cruise employee had never seen the AP document before. She went and spoke with her manager and cleared us to board. When we returned, we went through the immigration line. The officer checked my passport and we gave him my wife's Mexican passport and AP. He told us we'd need to go to the secondary screening room so they could verify that everything was okay. We went to the room and sat there for about 10 minutes while an officer typed a bunch of info into the computer. He seemed kind of inexperienced with the AP document, but was nice about it. He asked us if we had been told when we were going to receive the green card and we told him we weren't sure, but hopefully soon. He returned the AP (both copies) without any stamps. I asked him if he needed to take a copy and stamp them and he said, "Nope, you're all set to go." So we grabbed our things and left.

It was a pretty relaxed entry process, and I'd imagine that airport entries are a bit more strict. But my advice to anyone looking to travel on AP is to go for it. It was quick and painless.

I'm curious, has anyone else had a similar experience with the officer not stamping documents? He did take my wife's I-94 (she had left it inside the passport), saying she didn't need it anymore with the AP.

We are traveling from US to Ciudad Juarez for interview and are afraid of ICE at the airport. Are there immigration check points when you travel to let's say Monterrey Mexico. We where thinking going to El Paso from Atlanta and then just get a cab to cross into Juarez but stepping at 2 airports twice creeps us out. So we just want to fly to Monterrey,MX and from there to CD Juarez ,MX. All of you who have file for a 601a waiver or know of someone that has been in the US but has had to travel to have their interview abroad please advice.

Error on Ead Card
11:46 pm

My wife just received her EAD card/ advance parol combo card and she was really exited... Untill she realized it said that her country of birth was "USA" instead of what it really is "Mexico". I checked back on the documents we submitted and sure enough we put the correct city and state (Merida, Yucatan ) but than under country we put "USA" like dummies.

the question is what do we do now. It is tough because to fix this we would have to send the card back and re apply for both advance parole and the work permit. We will have to pay again. Plus if it take too long to come it will really hurt my wife because she needs to apply for jobs at school around July or beginning of August for the next school year starting at the end of August. I consulted with us customs at the likely port of entry (Houston ) and they said it shouldn't be a problem showing the card even with the error because they have other ways of verifying that information. However, my lawyer is worried that, doing that may get her deported because it is against the law to pretend to be a us citizen to gain immigration benefits. (I disagree that, that is even what we would be doing as we would be 100% truthful about the error and a Mexican passport would be required anyway.) I plan on checking with the people on the forum along with maybe a few more ports of entry to be sure. Right now I am leaning on keeping the Ead card with the error and using it if our green card is not finished by the end of November .(we are visiting Mexico at that time) I don't see the point of spending the time and money fixing a mistake that most likely will not cause us any issues.(given that the other ports of entry agree with the Houston's customs, that they would not deny entry) plus it is only a temporary card until the green card arrives and it may get here anyway before we travel.(though it possibly could take longer we applied at the end of February)

I wanted to know what everyone else thinks we should do? I am just worried because I do not want her to get denied entry or other negative things .

thank you in advance!
