Harassment at San Francisco POE on CR1

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife came to SF on CR1. When she got to the end of the line the officer noticed that her address on the Customs form was different from address for CR1 and they marked red X on customs form and had my wife go to an office. The reason the address was different because I have recently got new place and we decided to put new address on customs form. They held my wife in an office for about 1 hour. She could not understand anything they were saying. They fingerprinted here there and kept talking to her in English, even though she could not understand anything. No translator was provided. My wife was really stressed out and was in tears because of how they handled it. It was really bad experience for her.

Sorry to hear of your wife's experience, they take everyone's fingerprints upon entry. Did she ask for a translator? I'm not understanding why you think she was being harassed just because they were talking to her in English. They have a job to do, they need to make sure all her info checks out.

I'm sorry this happened to your wife. Unfortunately, i agree with the other posters. Everyone coming in on a K-1 or CR-1/IR-1 visa is taken to a secondary holding room where they have their papers checked and/or fingerprints and/or questioning. It's a normal part of the process. If you did not request a translator for her, then it would be difficult for them to have been prepared to help in that way.

What's most important is that she is here with you now! Enjoy!
