Every time I log on here I just get more and more pissed off! Gotta take a break... I'm exhausted of this 'process'.

We're on our third congressional inquiry. woot.

We're in the process of getting our story in the news for our sake and yours, everyone.

I don't want to get your hopes up, but if you look at the recent approvals from CSC, they are coming after a few touches in September. Most got a touch or two in September and then their NOA2 came in the mail..... Maybe and hopefully this is your situation. :)

If you can get the attention of the media - GREAT!

If you want me to generate some stats that help your case or that the reporter wants, please let me know.

If we can end this travesty of delay, I'm all for it.

Tom


Thank for for updating your timeline. (My Assistant, then edit/add my timeline.)

I don't blame you for being pissed. I'm seeing all these July approvals and it's disheartening knowing that there are still a few March, April and May filers left. I'd get your Senator involved.

I just called the Department of Homeland Security directly and they said they sent out a second RFE on August 31st, which I haven't gotten. They have my correct address. My profile online says nothing of a second RFE. I had no idea...

I asked when I could expect to see it and she said "within a reasonable timeframe". I asked what that meant... she recommended I wait and see if it arrives and if it doesn't "within a reasonable timeframe" that I should make an InfoPass appointment. zxs ny9pghl#^*%#R*) VGFIB ... Then she hung up on me. Because I was transfered four times from the DHS hotline, I don't know what number I ended up being transfered to so I can't call back.

I can't believe this!

I called the citizen line and was annoying enough to be transfered four times. I have no idea if you'll be able to reach the same people.
