Ok we are in need of some assistance!!

My wife and daughter both had their exams in Manila April of this year daughter was cleared and wife had to do sputum test 2 months later we have her cleared with no tb . We got visas and came to USA June 21st with no problem at Poe Atlanta CO read everything and said welcome to America gave us a paper showing when to apply for AOS. July 20th I received a panicked phone call from our local health department saying that we need to come in immediately for follow up that they believe my wife has tb...sooo we end our family visit in Pennsylvania and return to Georgia.  They do not have the test results from SLMEC showing no tb in her previous sputum test!!!! Sooo they decided that she needs to do again here we had 3 negative smears but still need to wait for culture results to prove no tb. My wife is now house quarantined while we wait they are also making her take treatment for tb as a precaution. We were told if we refused she would lose her Visa or risk be put in medical prison!?!? For forced treatment... Now they are requesting that me and my daughter undergo contact treatment (still no sputum culture results) if we refuse treatment we will be turned into children services for child endangerment... my daughter is only 5 . We cant seem to get any help can anyone tell me where we can get some help please.. my wife and daughter are from the Philippines and both have had a bcg vaccine so they will always show positive skin test but the health department here will not accept that fact.. I am going to pay now to have IGRA on all of us to show that we are not infected but they are still saying that we may still have to do treatment???

Why not just start treatment?   I had to do that myself back in the 70s due to a positive skin test.........I took pills for 6 months.......and that was that.......

That is very odd.  I had a buddy working for Ericcson in USA, I believe he was Sweden and he was here on a work visa, His wife was from Philippines and used to work in Japan as GRO and singer.

 

I don't think she had to do any medical to go to USA since she came with him on his work visa.  I hung around him some back in 2010. Well she went to get a greencard and low and behold found out she had TB.

 

She had worked at a grocery store as a cashier for about a year and since she was a GRO she frequented many night clubs in the area.

 

Long story short once I found out she had TB I was angry, she was still out working and going to bars. I called our local county health and asked them why they wouldn't quarantine her,  I was told they can not do that to any one.

 

With you saying they are threating put her in "Medical Prison" and forcing her to take TB medicine is almost exactly the opposite I was told.

Apply for AOS?   You are IR/CR-1  not K-1 .... IR/CR-1 already have green cards upon entry (i-551 stamp in the passport and physical green card to arrive in the near future)  so they don't complete AOS.

 

Ever heard the saying "You can't fight city hall" ?    CDC makes all the rules in regards to TB and with the sudden increase of TB within the USA they ramped up things ... follow the direction of the Health Dept.   .. Get 'er done!

 

 

**  I just read where you said you are referring to ROC

Upon entry you are only given a conditional greencard good for 2 years then you must apply for perment green card. With conditions removed.   Cdc does not accept tst for immigrants only igra sience nov 2018 

Are you, yourself, planning to start treatment?
