No, SSN. I need help, I'm pregnant!

Pleasant Afternoon,

I got married in the United States October, 2019. I am currently pregnant and expecting early March 2021. My American husband tried to add me to his work insurance this past October 2020 and they're saying because I don't have a SSN they're unable to start deducting for me starting January. I intended to have a water birth and seek health care through his insurance (United Health Care) because I was denied Medicaid, Pregnancy Medicaid and WIC when I applied.

Additional Information : WE applied for I-485, I-765 and I-130 through New American Pathways (non profit) in March, 2020, however the only progress with my paperwork thus far was my fingerprints being taken.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE (my James Brown voice) If there is any way someone can help point me in the right direction with places I can contact, tips I should try or where I need to go for rapid assistance, I would greatly appreciate it!

Thank you for your help and time in advance.

I was denied entry into the United States from The Bahamas two days ago. The Customs officer stamped WD2 and 7A1 on one of the back pages of my passport. I made this post because oddly enough I saw one made from a fellow Bahamian. We share eerily similar stories however I do possess a tourist visa. I gave an address where my girlfriend (also Bahamian) stays with a return ticket with thousands in the bank. I was turned around due to, "Many people staying due to corona, and you don't have a job or own a house, so you have *nothing* to return to The Bahamas to." - Customs Officer.

The trouble begins because while my trip was obviously parts pleasure, I had intended to take an IELTS test to legally immigrate to Canada for work. There were no official test dates when I tried to travel, but of course as of yesterday, there is now going to be testing in October. I admit it was brash of me to think I could wait it out until a testing center opened with COVID-19 being rampant, but that mistake is already made. I need advice on how to go about this new situation seeing as I HAVE to take this test to gain entry to Canada, but I was just turned around at the border. Its almost impossible for me to own a house in a month, and very hard to get a job seeing as the Bahamas is also still recovering from COVID economy-wise. And, oh, I need to pay for the IELTS test by today or I risk losing my seat in October and have to wait another round. What should I do?

Hi all!

So I returned from the United states after being stuck there due to our borders being shut. I was actually waiting for my priority date to become current (Nov 2015). I returned home once it open and remained here ever since. I received information from NVC and I filled out and submitted my I-864 and my IV( July 18th) I haven't heard anything from them on it as yet. my question is can I still travel to the USA on my b1/b2 visa?
