My Immigration Letter to the President

Well I thought I would enlighten the President. Here is my letter and here is the "Whitehouse' response. It's like they don't even know about spousal and K1 Visa's. I know we are a small piece of the pie but good grief. Hopefully maybe he, they are taking a deeper look.

Dear, Mr. President,

My question is personal but involves somany people suffering the long long wait of requesting their husbandsand wives, fiancée’s and fiancé to the United States with the K1and I-130 Visa.

As a new wife (today is our 1 yearanniversary) I do not understand why it takes such a long time forthe USCIS process, than another 2 to 3 months at NVC. To ask a UScitizen to wait 8 to 12 months to be able to live as husband and wifeis torturous and brutal I must say.

For me marrying a man from a countrythat doesn’t freely approve Visas means he CAN NOT come to visit meat all during this process. This has been very hard. I was blessedlast year to be able to spend 6 months in Nigeria with my husband.

What I am concerned about are myfellow citizens waiting in AP (Administrative Processing) at theembassy point for months some over a year. No updates no word whatthey can do. They get told at interviews that theirmarriage/relationship is for immigration purposes they get denied orpushed aside. To only file again and go through this immigrationprocess again. What I don’t understand is if you were considered afraud relationship than, what will filing again prove to the ConsularOfficers at Embassy because more times than not they approve thesecond or third time.

I pray to God our Petition never get tothat point. Trust me Mr. President we are real. My family in Nigeriawelcomes me and I am loved and wanted. I miss my family in Nigeriawhich I got to live with for 6 months. Being apart from my husbandis hard and heartbreaking.

All I am asking is when “WE” readImmigration improvements it seems the Visa’s for Spouse and Engagedpeople are never considered. I really have no idea what percentage weare of the whole immigration pie. But know this (just have your aidescheck out www.visajourney.com) I for one want you to know weare doing immigration the right way, the way it was designed to. Thepaper work is brutal. I for one submitted 219 pages of emails, IM’s,phone logs, pictures.

Can you imagine having to submit everyconversation you had with your wife, email, letters to prove you werea Bona Fide married relationship. It’s like we are deemedfraudsters and have to prove ourselves innocent.

Anyway just wanted to express my views.But on a good note please accept my heartfelt thank you for lowing some of the Visa processing fees. Saving a hundreds here and theretruly helps in this process. In this day and age a price reduction issuch a blessing.

I thank you for all you do for ournation. I know you are trying hard and its duly noted. I willcontinue to pray for you, our nation and your family. Be well andstay Blessed. Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,

********************************************************There response******************Pretty generic but still got a reply.******************

Dear Friend:

<br style="line-height: 19px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: 'Times New Roman', Times, Georgia, serif; font-size: 15px; text-align: -webkit-left; ">

Thank you for writing. I have heard from many Americans concerned about immigration, and I appreciate your perspective.

Americans are rightly frustrated with our Nation's broken immigration system, and I share that frustration. We need an immigration system that meets America's 21st century economic and security needs, and that can only be achieved by putting politics aside and coming together to develop a comprehensive solution that continues to secure our borders, holds businesses responsible for who they hire, strengthens our economic competitiveness, and requires undocumented immigrants to get right with the law. That is how we can reaffirm our heritage as a nation of immigrants and a nation of laws.

My Administration has invested an unprecedented amount of resources, technology, and manpower to secure our borders, and our efforts are producing real results. Today, our Southern border is more secure than ever with more law enforcement personnel working along it than at any time in American history. Along with significant reductions in the number of people trying to cross the border illegally, crime rates along the border are down, and we have seized more illegal guns, cash, and drugs than in years past. In addition to doing what is necessary to secure our borders, my Administration is taking action against employers who knowingly exploit people and break the law, and criminal immigrants who pose a threat to the safety of American communities.

I remain deeply committed to working in a bipartisan way to enact immigration reform that restores accountability and responsibility to our broken immigration system. The Federal Government has the responsibility to continue to secure our borders. Those immigrants who are here illegally have a responsibility to pay taxes, pay a fine, learn English, and undergo background checks before they can be considered for legalization. At the same time, we need to provide businesses a legal way to hire the workers they rely on, and a path for those workers to earn legal status. Stopping illegal immigration also depends upon reforming our outdated system of legal immigration. We should make it easier for the best and brightest immigrants to stay here and help create jobs in America. The law should also stop punishing young people who were brought to this country illegally as children by giving them a chance to stay and earn a legal status if they pursue higher education or serve in our military.

By creating a 21st century immigration system that is true to our principles, our Nation will remain a land of opportunity, prosperity, and freedom for all. To learn more about my Administration's efforts regarding immigration, or to read our Blueprint for Immigration Reform, please visit: www.WhiteHouse.gov/issues/immigration.

For additional information and resources on current immigration and enforcement efforts, I encourage you to visit www.dhs.gov or call 1-800-375-5283.

:) be happy you got a reply ! i sent one also and never heard a word :( this was last year when his job wasn't on the line LOL

Yeah, election year makes difference.

Still, not much to be happy about. Very generic letter and doesn't help or solve anything.

One would have to be a big believer in this administration to think otherwise.

Lol seems like they read the subject line and inserted an answer.

Exactly

Amen to that, I mean excuse me Sir but did you not read what I said even made it personal.headbonk.gif I remember reading here on VJ that K1 and IR1/CR1 Visa's are a small small piece of the pie. They had said like monthly VSC and CSC gets about 4500 Petitions that times 12 for the year really is a small piece.

But what gets me is the aim of the administration is to reward all the people who did it wrong for whatever "right" reason. And those like us are just forgotten. The president for real in the immigration division needs an admin over every different Visa. From USCIS to Consulate needs to be examined. Why not appoint a year study have a person assigned to each consulate to see what the hell is going on and why. (sorry i'm acting like i am president hehe) just frustrating.wacko.gif

It's interesting even with the scammers and frauds and just not so nice people going through our kind of Visa's. They still have your passport info, and bio-metrics. That's more than they have of illegals. Just saying

It's a standard government form letter responds. I am quite sure all of the other thousands who have writtem with the same concern received the same responds.

Oh I know its just nice though that I got any response at all. Who knows maybe it will make someone take a deeper looker. Believe I won;t stop here.I just wanted to share.

Your concern is probably on the list with all of the others, what priority it is, who knows. But, everyone thinks their problems is always bigger than the person in line with them. Things will change but maybe not in time for your case, nor at your urgency. I am not being careless to your plight, but the problems and issues with immigration were created long before you got involved with immigration. Therefore there is no short and fast fix.

I do wish things work out for you and yours. Good luck.

Autoreplies are a great thing. Scan the email find the most prevelant word and generate a return email. Maybe we should have a contest on how many of us can get the exact same verbage. Family immigration is a low priority in the scheme of immigration. Employment will always be number one. But I do agree that we need to tighten up the loopholes such as AOSing in the US unless you came on the correct family based visa, doing away with 601 and 212 waivers and birthright cutuzenship. Those changes would free up adjuticaors time to process clean simple petitionns.

Yes this AOSing well makes my blood boil and it seems to come from the countries that are so lacked. It's so unfair and you are right. And I didn't expect a handwritten personal email or letter of course not. If nothing else it got there maybe maybe not someone will care. I know family immigration are a small piece of the pie but well I wanted to make my voice be heard and speak for so many others.

So far for me I have no issues sure I would love to fly through this process but it is what it is and well its all good.

The thing is i don't have a problem I just filed. I was just stating how the process is and mentioning those who I have read about here. So far so good for me. I am loving this journey. Now if I get in AP, denied than that's a different matter. I just wanted a voice for family immigration to be heard cuz it seems we don't even matter. Oh well I have no issue waiting my turn. And no I don't think my issue or concern is higher than anyone elses.
