My wife was approved with a CGC on 08/06/2006. We filed this year for removal of conditions and were approved on 04/30/2009. We received the card today in the mail and her sex is listed as M. So, the information on the card is WRONG. What is causing me a great deal of frustration is this also happened on her CGC. I filed the first time and got the information corrected and now I have to file a form again because USCIS made the same mistake again. I am miffed to say the least. Should I schedule an infopass appointment, call my congressman, picket outside the ATL USCIS office or just bite the bullet and submit the paperwork again. Unbelievable.

I'd say Infopass, I-90 (with no fee), then involve the congressman so you can get the corrected card faster. The fact that this is happening again to you is concerning and the congressman's office can certainly stay on top of things for you once you have filed the I-90.

Are you sure your wife didn't have a gender change at some point of his life?


There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.

Well, our daughter is 2 1/2 years old. That would indeed be a successful gender change. :blush:

When you send the I-90 and green card back, send it certified mail. Make sure that someone signs for it. When we did AOS they sent my husband's GC with a spelling error. We sent it back with an I-90. After months of waiting we made an infopass appointment and they claimed it was never received until I brought our my proof that it was. We never did get a corrected GC. He just had several I-551 stamps in his passport this past 2 years. I hope they get his 10 yr GC right or I'm gonna be PO'ed too.

Maybe I missed it but do we mail the incorrect green card back to USCIS or just a copy? I cannot remember what I did for the last mistake on the CGC. I did read the information but do not remember seeing that mailing it back was required. What a pain.

Here is the letter I am sending along to U.S.C.I.S.Along with the I-90 should this be sufficient?

To: Whom It May Concern

From:

Date: July 02, 2009

RE: Wrong information on Green Card

On July 2nd I received my new 10 year Green Card in the mail. The information on this Green Card has my sex as "M" when it should be "F" due to U.S.C.I.S administrative error. This happened when I received my conditional Green Card as well in 2006. I am not sure what is causing the same error to be repeated again but I have included documentation supporting that I am female along with the I-90 form. Please make the correction and mail my new Green Card as soon as possible. My husband and I will be travelling out of the country in the next three months and would like to have the new Green Card prior to our travels.

Included in this package are the following:

-A copy of my information page from my Thai passport

-A copy of my marriage certificate to XXXXXXXXXX

-A copy of my daughter XXXX's birth certificate

-A copy of my Georgia I.D.

-A copy of my Thai Birth Certificate

-The original 10 year Green Card I received on July 02, 2009

My case was transferred to the California Service Center on March 24 and I received the letter stating that I was approved for removal of conditions on April 30, 2009. The Green Card arrived today with the administrative error. I appreciate any help you can offer in handling this in a timely and efficient manner. Also, do you have any suggestions for avoiding this same issue again in the future.

Sincerely,

LastSurvivor (my wife's name actually)

Are you missing card in the end of Permanent Resident? Otherwise it does not make sense - Permanent Resident arrived today????

I hope the letter above goes to the congressman as well as there is no way you will ever receive a response to the questions asked - suggestions on how to avoid this in the future. Same thing for your travels - unless you have someone to stay on top of the USCIS you won't get it in three months.

You mail the incorrect GC along with the I-90 back to USCIS. And saying "permanent resident" instead of "GC" in the letter does not make sense to me either. :blink:

Thanks for the suggestions. I have made all the changes and will mail it first thing this morning. Now I just hope she does not start getting "Have you registered for selective service" like the last time. I also had to deal with that in addition to correcting the USCIS error in 2006.
