It only makes a difference if your partner is staying in the country illegally and is it really going to take any less time to get the green card? I think it sucks for us who have started the process already because our cases are just going to take that much longer with the influx of these waivers. yipee.

Agree with you!!!!! I'm doing a legal process and it has been 214 days waiting for an answer. My husband is in Mexico waiting, we have two boys and we are missing him like hell. His brothers and sisters in law are living in San Diego with tourist visas. It's that fair???

The waiver still sends the person back to their home country. It simply means they won't be banned for overstaying like they would have in the past. And it definitely means more applications and slowing down the process for others.

I don't think it sends them back until the interview.

Too lazy to look up atm.

KDH... I do believe you're right. No matter what the case, it certainly is going to add a lot of pressure to the system. I thought the whole premise of "reuniting family members faster" was fair and made sense. But now that I'm reading about all the people who can use it my opinion is changing. It's not just about family members who have overstayed.

ETA: I like rules. I'm just one of those people. I am happy that countries like the U.S. and Canada can offer a safe place for people to come in emergencies. But I also like when people just follow the rules from the start if it is not an emergency situation.

After coming across another post, I think I realized OP is in the US illegally.

With a fake SSN.

I agree with most in the thread - I used to think all these new rules implemented to help those who really needed it was awesome - nobody likes to be away from their family.

But after reading the finer print on this 'waiver', I feel like some of us are being cheated out. :hehe:

I don't want to call it unfair, but ... oh you know. :whistle:

But anyway - Good luck to everyone on their journey, with or without waivers. :thumbs:

You can't just stop reading

Under current law, immediate relatives of U.S. citizens who are not eligible to adjust status in the United States to become lawful permanent residents must leave the U.S. and obtain an immigrant visa abroad. Individuals who have accrued more than six months of unlawful presence while in the United States must obtain a waiver to overcome the unlawful presence inadmissibility bar before they can return to the United States after departing to obtain an immigrant visa. Under the existing waiver process, which remains available to those who do not qualify for the new process, immediate relatives cannot file a waiver application until after they have appeared for an immigrant visa interview abroad and the Department of State has determined that they are inadmissible.

If you are a USC or GC holder and did it legal, you get delayed. All the illegal's and their processing should go to the back of the bus not the ones who did it correctly.


In Arizona its hot hot hot.
