Why do you have to get biometrics for ROC?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am very very far away from ROC (still waiting for GC approval), but we did biometrics for AOS. It isn't like her fingerprints change, so why the second biometrics?

Should I assume that naturalization will also require another set of biometrics?

USCIS can only store the bio-metrics up to 15 months, why? as an IT professional, I will say "it is expensive and very difficult to store such information for a long while and also retrieve the info whenever it is needed" so that is why you have to renew your bio-metrics every fifteen months.

Hope this helps

Yes,

every time you file a new application with USCIS, they want to make sure you haven't changed your fingers, your DNA, and didn't have a face transplant.

They also want your money, as that's the American Way of 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.
