Greetings,

My consulate interview is very soon, my category is F2B. Lately, I have heard from other peoples experiences that the consul in many of the questions he asks is: How did your father/mother get to the US?...

Back in the 90s most of the Dominicans parents immigrated to the US in -Yolas- to PR, a yola is a little improvised boat. I am a little worried because this is my father's case and if, just if the consul ask me this question and I give him/her this answer, I am afraid that this could affect my interview outcome. Just to be aware this was more than 20 years ago and my father now is an American resident.

Please kindly clarify this interrogative that I am having right now. Thank you all!  ♥
