DHHS in Texas Forcing another TB Test.

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

The department of health and human services in Texas is threatening to take away my wife's VISA if she does not take ANOTHER (This will be the third TB Test since she got to the US) TB Test. They also forgot to mention until the day before the exam we also have to pay a "fee." Has anyone else had a similar issue before?

She had to retake the TB test in Texas before and she got her visa...

Have you spoken with a supervisor at the DHHS?

Have you consulted an attorney of your own?

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

12-11-2007 = 180 days; file is "between workstations, may be early Jan."; touches 12/11 & 12/12.

12-18-2007 = Call; file is with Division 9 ofcr. (bckgrnd check); e-prompt to shake it; touch.

12-19-2007 = NOA2 by e-mail & web, dated 12-18-07 (187 days; 201 per VJ); in mail 12/24/07.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-05-2008 = Infuriating $12 call to non-English-speaking consulate appointment-setter.

05-06-2008 = Better $12 call to English-speaker; "joint" interview date 6/30/08 (my selection).

06-30-2008 = Stokes Interrogations w/Ecuadorian (not USC); "wait 2 weeks; we'll mail her."

They don't ever call, it is always just the location that does the testing. It is like they keep harassing us about it too, as I already gave them paperwork showing that she had tested for TB and it came back negative.

We never had an attorney for our immigration process, did everything on out own.

Have you spoken with a supervisor at the DHHS?

Have you consulted an attorney of your own?

I was hoping if anyone else had similar thing occurred to them if they could tell us what they did.

I'd talk with an attorney. Many might offer an initial consultation for no fee.
