"Yellow" letter

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Today, I received a yellow letter from uscis, asking me to bring "evidence indicating that I did not abandon my residence, or terminate employment in the United States", "state-issued driver's license" and "passports" to the interview. I haven't done my biometrics yet, nor received an invitation to the biometrics? Is this normal? I'm worried now, because I was out of the country for almost 7 months in 2010/11 for my husband's doctoral research...

There are two kinds of those scary letters: the one you received and the one where they're asking to bring all kinds of court papers regarding the criminal conviction(s). General consens is that those letters are triggered by a intellectually challenged drone in the mail room reading a word he or she misinterpretes and then it's off to the applicant. Many N-400 patients are first shocked as they have no criminal history, and -- like in your case -- feel their absence may have triggered a suspicion of abandonment of their US residency.

Don't ya worry . . . it's all just smoke and mirrors, minus the mirror, or, as the Germans say "totaler Schwachsinn." Bring your passport to the interview, and perhaps documentation what hubby and you did in Germany, and it's all gonna be fine.

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.

I already sent in everything they wanted: rent/mortgage payments for that time, a letter stating why we were gone, my husband's stipend contract from Freie Universitaet and tax returns to prove we kept filling taxes here… I'll just bring all this I guess. Hopefully I will get my biometrics letter soon!
