Background check reveals incorrect information

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

We need your advice. My husband recently had a background check done and it revealed an active warrant. I called to inquire and was told the reason they were given was he is a "previously deported felon." My husband has never been deported and he certainly isn't a felon. He received his unconditional perm. resident green card last year - no problems. His whole immigration journey has been without problems. He qualifes to apply to be a citizen in May (which he is planning to do). I called the USCIS Customer Service # and they told me to use InfoPass and make an appointment to speak to an officer. I've done that. Our appointment is on Tuesday.

I'm thinking there was a clerical error sometime during the last year. Did USCIS do another background check when he applied for the conditions to be removed on his green card (last year). We've visited Canada last fall- there wasn't a problem crossing the border and coming home again.

Can they arrest him while they straighten out this mess? What's going to happen when we go to the immigration office and speak with an officer on Tuesday? This needs to be cleared up but we are freaking out.

Thanks for your help.

Melanie and Carlos
