arrowAP Serves No Purpose Very Upset

So my wife and I went to Mexico, we live on the border. She just received her EAD/AP combo card. At the Customs inspection no one knew what the card was. Everyone was asking everyone else what it was and how it works. A Customs officer talked down on my wife as we were showing them all the supporting documents that we took with us. They took her inside, and would not let me accompany her. They came back and told me we were free to go but we should not be using AP to get back into the U.S. I explained that when we requested AP I requested multiple re-entry and he said that we should reserve card for emergencies. He noticed I was upset because he mistreated my wife and told me he was the authority to which I said I will call Immigration tomorrow and he said I AM IMMIGRATION and he said youre free to go but dont cross again until you have green card. My wife said while inside a customs officer talked down to her as well and bluntly told her either you stay in U.S. or in Mexico. The first customs officer we spoke to understood that every time she crosses she has to be taken inside to ask for Parole but he passed us off to this officer that made my blood boil. What is the point of USCIS issuing AP is Customs has no idea what theyre doing? Now my wife is freaked out because they scared her straight inside. She has a grandmother that is poor of health in Juarez which is why I requested multiple re-entry. HELP! What do I do?

Hello everyone! My wife just got her EAD/AP Combo card in the mail. We live in El Paso, TX which is borderland with Juarez, Chihuahua. I met her in Juarez, Chihuahua so all of her family is there. We requested her EAD/AP to visit her family. When I filled out the forms we specified for multiple re-entry. So my question is, will there be a problem if we visit Juarez frequently during the weekends while we wait for her GC?

arrowOur recent experience flying from Mexico City to Atlanta with combo card

My wife Elizabeth and I flew home to Atlanta on March 1st from Mexico City after a vacation to see family.  Unlike the problem we had when we left Atlanta (see my earlier post  

we had zero problems.  We checked in at Benito Juarez airport in Mexico City with Delta and Elizabeth presented her Mexican passport and combo card with AP and had no problems.  In Atlanta we got in the US citizen/LPR line together at the passport control area.  Elizabeth was asked for her fingerprints and was asked how long has she been waiting for her green card.  She received the combo card the first week of January and she told the agent we are still waiting for the green card.  We were directed to the tripod area (secondary) and had an official escort take us there.  The tripod area is just past the passport control booths and just before the baggage claim area.  We were at the tripod area for 5 minutes and were called to the booth.  They asked Elizabeth if she had any food she carried from Mexico which we did not.  We were then told thanks and could proceed to baggage claim.  Zero problems which we were happy.  Now if we would just get some news about the green card! 


God Bless

arrowProblem with combo card at Atlanta airport this morning

My wife Elizabeth had an issue with her combo card this morning when she was checking in at the Atlanta airport flying to Mexico City.  Elizabeth received her combo card (with advance parole) the first week of January.  We are still waiting for the green card and are adjusting status from a K1 visa.  I am flying to Mexico City on 2/21/14 and we both fly back on 3/1/14.  When she was checking in at the Delta ticket counter the Delta employee asked to see Elizabeth's visa or green card.  Elizabeth produced her combo card and the Delta employee had no idea what the combo card is and was clueless about AP.  Lucky for us when Elizabeth received her combo card she also received a letter from USCIS that explained what the combo card is.  One statement on the USCIS letter says "presenting a valid combo card will authorize a transportation operator to accept you on board for travel to the United States without liability under section 273 of the Immigration and Nationality Act provided that you arrive in the United States on or before the expiration date on the card"  The Delta employee had an issue with Elizabeth's return ticket on 3/1/14.  Elizabeth let the Delta employee look at the USCIS letter when helped a little.  The Delta employee then manually loaded information into the Delta computer system which also included Elizabeth's A number (Alien number).  Elizabeth also produced our marriage license to prove to the Delta employee we were married.  What a crock!  Anyway to make a long story short she was allowed to check in and was given her boarding pass.  She had zero issues going through the TSA security check as they simply asked for her passport.  Thankfully we had front loaded the paperwork that we might need to produce in order to help the Delta employee do her job...something I would think a person working in the international terminal would be trained on.  I plan on calling Delta this morning in attempt to get some answers.  When Elizabeth lands at Benito Juarez airport in Mexico today she will stop by the Delta check in counter and ask the employees if they understand the combo card.  I am a little worried about checking in on 3/1/14 with this wonderful combo card that nobody knows anything about.
