guys,

I want to say that all of us is pretty angry at the situation we are in with immigration. I will fight and raise my voice until I get my wife here in U.S.A with me… to America family means more … at least it did when i took the oath to be a U.S. citizen years back. Now I want my family here … we all raise out concerns here at visajourney … I am not saying its bad its is a place for all of us to be together and ask questions and get answers. But during this time in the midst of election and this is the time to raise our voice … I have written to newspapers and all about this issue … no answer what so ever some of us has contacted out congressman and some noted it was a success others it didn’t do any help … but listen

Youtube and other media is a highlight for people voices this coming election CNN even have accession where they air videos form YouTube … post your stories their and tell a larger crowd how we feel … it might not mean a lot to people who born here … but it might mean something to a reporter at a newspaper who immigrated to this country …. Let’s hope it might mean something to somebody …. After all that is all we have in this mess HOPE... that is my two cents .

Thanks for hearing me out

I'm a born in USA citizen, never been arrested, never been deliquent in paying my taxes, never collected a nickle of welfare money or even unemployment insurance claims, and I find I don't REALLY have the right to marry who I want, even if they have never been arrested, deported or broken any laws.

I will wait until hell freezes over, but I feel robbed and deluded because I never told my wife she would have to wait for 3 to 5 years to be with me. Love or not, that IS pertenent information.

USA doesn't love freedom THAT much for it's citizens.

Well, being a US citizen you are free to move to another country and live there while awaiting for your spouse's visa to come through :whistle: It is only your spouse who's not a citizen yet, who is not free.

US lost it's freedoms looong ago anyway. Freedom to drink on public? To park your car anywhere unless forbidden? To camp in the forests (NOT on camping grounds)? To fish with no license? To ride a horse through towns, forests and fields?

Many countries in Europe enjoy all that :thumbs:

If I was independently wealthy I'd already be there... unfortunately I need to plan properly so we will have funds for retirement and in the short term so I can afford my travels there for visits. I feel like a prisoner. At a minimum I DO feel a bit better now know it will be about a 4 year wait. I can now try to create a life alone again and try not thinking about a real married life.

Anyway I'm not asking for the right to shoot heroin or have sex with dolphins in a parking lot, I'm just asking for the right to a fair TRIAL of my marriage. Since this whole procedure now is essentially a criminal trial for us all. We are fugitives and must wait years for a trail that may rule against us.

Even murderers get their trial in some reasonable time frame within a year usually.

Why do you have a 4 years wait???? it does not take 4 years for a visa application...

well I wish you were/ are correct... but what the traditional time line USE to be I think is all old data and not too useful now. We've got USCIS/Homeland security version "Vista" now, 1.00001.

The embassy representive told my wife expect a 2 to 5 year wait.

Sadly I think that does make sense. If in the good old days the wait was 14 months, and now we have the greatest onslaught of applications in history, and waits of the better part of a year before even gettinga receipt and beginning the 14 month process we are easily in 2 year territory assuming the old speed of processing. I can't imagine that will be up to speed with rolls things into the 3 year mark... assume some extra time for re-mailing in expired check fee, and extra time for any times they flag for additional evidence and 4 years seems reasonable....AND completely outragous and numbing.

HOHOHO YES USICIS IS SWAMPED AT THE MOMENT BUT I REALLY THINK THE CONSULATE WAS JUST SAYING THAT 4 YRS WAIT TO WORRY YOU MORE THEN ANY THING. i would figure 1 1/2 yrs tops i really dont think it will be that long unless you get ref for everything yes it is real frustrating we are married and we should be able to have our spouces at our sides while we process all the papers make the american citizen responsible for there spouses it was our decision to marry a person not from this country and if they blow something up it should be the american that has to be responsible thats the way i look at it at least anyway good luck in your journey and the worst part is waiting for uscis
