My Incident about "Good Moral Character" for n400

22 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm applying soon in few months for citizenship (n-400) based on 5 years, but I have a concern: about a year and a half ago, I flew to visit my family overseas and my layover was in UK, as I bought a ticket with a layover in UK less than 24 hours (a flight agent from british airways here in USA called UK airport and an officer "cleared the way" for me to come since my layover was less than 24 hours). 
But once I'm in UK airport they rejected me leaving the airport and detained me and asked me to apply on the spot for a temporary visa (layover visa), I did online in their presence, and I got rejected after 2 hours. Then they moved me to wait for the next flight in a center being escorted as if I'm an illegal immigrant, but they treated me nicely as they know I'm not illegal and just here for few hours and catch my flight in the morning. They gave to the flight pilot a yellow envelop which he gave me once I arrived to my home country. 
the Decision says they denied my transit visa because I already applied to study in UK several years ago and got rejected, he rejected me based on that lol really weird excuse. 
I'm worried if this incident being detainee for few hours (regarding good moral character) will affect my n400 application 

Once again: it was NOT my mistake, it was the officer mistake to "clear the way" and confirm that I'm good to go and do my layover passing the border check point just fine as I meet the requirements for a less than 24 hours layover... but how can I prove that now? I call the heathrow airport and have this officer guy who made the mistake  (I know his name) to write an aknoledgement letter to add to my n-400 form? but I guess no way he will do it I'll just waste my time I guess.

Is it even worth all this hassle? since my US background record is clear with no crimes whatsoever (except for the driving record I had few parking tickets that are paid and not even showing on the record and a speeding ticket of 15mph).

since my US background is clear, why would I worry about "international background" for something that's just a detention while waiting for a transit visa decision

Do you guys suggest me to email UK visa immigration and complain about the mistake of that officer? because they have a complain procedure to do just that :) here: https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/uk-visas-and-immigration/about/complaints-procedure

 

I can even request FOIA from UK border immigration (it's the same as the one of the US) to see what they have on file about that incident here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/requests-for-personal-data-uk-visas-and-immigration

 

or just request a copy of my denial decision of that transit visa to add to my n-400? and would be enough? or both: copy or transit visa decision AND a copy from the detention center where I spent the night?

 

The reason being is because I've read this on the n-400 instruction PDF:

G. Arrests/Convictions. If you have ever been arrested or detained anywhere in the world, by any law enforcement officer, for any reason, and no charges were filed, bring: (1) An original or court-certified arrest report; and (2) An official, certified statement from the arresting agency or applicable court confirming that no charges were filed.

Basically they detained me while I applied for a transit visa once I'm at the airport in UK. Few hours later I got a decision "transit visa rejected", then they had me go to spend the night in a kind of center or a jail for illegal immigrants, then in the morning they escorted me to the airport to my actual transit flight that I bought.

Would that lead to a refusal for my naturalization? or I'm just too worried and won't affect it?

Hello everyone!

 

I've noticed that most members cituation regarding the detained/arrested/cited question on n-400 talk about traffic tickets related matters.

As I haven't found any case related to mine, I've created this post specifically for members who've been detained and applying for US citizenship to keep them organized and related all in this post.

Please discuss your situation so everyone benefit from your case. Starting with my unique case, here I go:

I'm a 10 years green card holder, and will apply in several months for my citizenship, but my concern is that couple years ago, I flew to visit my family back home, I had a 24hours (layover) connecting flight in UK. I didn't need a transit visa since my connecting flight was less than 24 hours (according to UK immigration laws). once at UK airport, the border officer wasn't convinced to let me leave the airport for 24 hours and be back to take my connecting flight. she had me apply instantly for a transit visa. after several hours I got a response "rejected", the reason was because I was rejected a UK student visa several years ago. Then they had me go to spend the night in a kind of center or kind of special temporary jail for illegal immigrants, so they detained me there untill the morning, then they escorted me to the airport to catch my actual transit flight that I bought. I took my transit flight back home, visited my family and came back to US all good.

I know being arrested is "worse" than being detained, but being detained for one night for not having a transit visa can lead to a refusal for my naturalization? or I'm just too worried and won't affect it?

Do you have any documentation regarding the detainment?

only a paper the size of a credit card that has my picture and my name on it and my number that says "detainee". and once landed in my home country, the Flight Pilot gave me an envelop that has the decision letter made on my transit visa with a rejection decision.

so what do you think?

I wouldn't worry about it.

 

The only question relevant to this on the N-400 is 23) "Have you EVER been arrested, cited, or detained by any law enforcement officer (including any immigration official or any official of the US armed forces) for any reason?"

 

Given :

a) it wasn't a crime

b) you weren't arrested

c) you weren't deported (which would have resulted in sending you back to your origin)

d) it did not result in a criminal record

Put something like 'Overnight transit visa in UK denied due to incorrect documentation check by airline '  and the outcome as ' Held overnight until next available flight to destination, and then escorted to aircraft. No arrest, no charges'

 

 Enjoy waving your US passport at LHR immigration next time.


CR1 / DCF (London): 2012 / 2013 (4.5 months from I-130 petition to visa in hand)

 

I-751 #1 [Denied]

 

Early May 2015 : I-751 Joint filing package sent fedex next day 09:00am from UK ($lots - thanks). 
May 2015: Notice of receipt/1yr extension received, dated day of receipt. This was forwarded to me outside the US, and no issues re-entering multiple times.
June 2015: Biometrics completed - walk in / argument, stressing proof of imminent travel and multiple prior inconvenient appointments & reschedules.
May 2016: Vermont Service Centre updated to processing May 2015 cases, therefore my case is now classed as outside normal processing time
May 2016: Service request sent (whatever that is) after calling to find out why I am still waiting after 12 months. Unable to tell me anything.
May 2016: Letter received in response, stating processing is on hold due to 'pending security checks' with no other information. Not helpful.
May 2016: (7am) - Infopass appointment for I-551 Stamp in passport.  (8am) - Returned to USCIS office for another I-551 stamp after realizing the dumbass put the expiry stamp as 2015 not 2017. Two entire passport pages wasted. Cheers. 

Oct 2016: Infopass appointment (not at local office). USCIS have sent my file to an overseas office, in a country that neither myself or my spouse have ever resided in. It has sat there untouched for five months. Why? Who knows. Internal query requesting urgent clarification is sent by USCIS officer.  
Oct 2016: An identical 'pending security check'  letter received, addressing precisely none of my or the immigration officers legitimate queries. 
Nov 2016: Infopass appointment: My file is now back in the US and at my local office...no other updates or progress. 
Jan 2017: Notification that an interview has been scheduled at a local office. Bizarrely still no RFE... 
Jan 2017: 2hr wait, then interview terminated before it began, due to moving my ID to another state 2 wks prior. New interview 'in a few months...maybe.'       Informed them that divorce proceedings are underway, but not finalised at this time. 
March 2017: An Interview was scheduled - marked as no-show as they didn't actually send out a notification of interview. FML 
April  2017: Filed an official complaint with the ombudsman, and have requested Senator & Congressman assistance - enough is enough. 
May 2017: Yet another infopass. No updates, interview of further progress. Still no response from Congressperson, Senator, or Ombudsman received. 
June 2017: 68 days after contacting them, the Ombudsman finally contacted USCIS. 'It may take up to 60 days to receive a response'.   
July 2017:  A follow up enquiry sent by Ombudsman to USCIS after receiving no response or action after 45 days. I am Jack's complete lack of surprise. 
August 2017: 60 days has come and gone with no response from USCIS. Contacted the Ombudsman who will contact them AGAIN. 
August 2017: Email from Ombudsman - USCIS have scheduled an interview at the very end of August .  
August 2017: Interview - switched to a (finalised) divorce waiver. Told that decision will be made that afternoon, but no problems foreseen with my case. 
September 2017: Now 4 weeks since interview, my file has not moved from the officers desk, and no decision is showing when I call and speak to a Tier 2.  
September 2017: Request filed for Senator assistance (a different senator - maybe I will get a reply & assistance from this one?). 
October 2017: 37 days since interview....and no decision.  W, and indeed, TF is going on???? 
October 2017: Letter of Denial received - reason given as 'I-751 petition was not properly filed'. Discovered ex-spouse made false allegations to USCIS

I-751 #2 [Pending] 

October 2017: Within 72hrs of receiving denial notice, a new waiver I-751, divorce decree & $680 cheque, sent to Vermont via FedEx overnight 9am priority.  

October 2017: I-797C Receipt/extension letter received, dated day of receipt at VSC 

October 2017: Another I-551 stamp obtained at infopass appointment, as the extension letter is useless with a 2yr card that expired 2.5yrs ago! 

November 2017: Biometrics completed (early walk-in) 

2018: Re-entered US multiple times with second I-751 extension letter & stamp. Quick trip to secondary required to verify, and stamped in as normal

  

N-400 [Pending] 

February 2018: N-400 filed online.  $725 paid to the USCIS paperwork wastage fund

February 2018: Biometrics completed (walk-in)

so what do you think?

It's something you will have to disclose on your application, since you were detained by border officials.

Do you have any documentation upon your release the next day stating how long you were detained, the date, circumstances, etc.

Thank you very much for the headsup!!! your comment really made me breeth :) the reason why the "incorrect documentation check by UK airline" was actually the UK border officer which the UK airline here in the US called UK heathrow to confirm it, and UK officer said on the phone: "yes he can legally come, I clear the way for him", but then once in UK and the officer asked me what's the officer name? she was asstonished when I told her his name! she was like:" hey guys, it's actually true, he even knows his name!" she confirmed with him and he indeed said it. ONLY then she gave me option to apply on the spot for a transit visa and after several hours got rejected. she said I can't spend the night inside the airport, it's better to go to that kind of center/jail for detainees.

Thank you for releafing my soul :) for real this freaked the heck out of me!

"Just make sure to disclose it"... you mean to only answer question # 23 by YES ? 

if so, I back up my YES answer by just attaching a peace of paper explaining what happened + visa "rejected" decision paper?

Yes and yes.  You don't need to include the visa rejected paper---but if you do, keep a copy for your own records.

Yes and yes.

Ok great! and what about when you said: "Do you have any documentation upon your release the next day stating how long you were detained, the date, circumstances, etc" 

you mean to request a copy of my FOIA from the UK visa immigration office which will contain any detaintement and anything about me. any thought about this? or no need for it?
