    lilQueenP got a reaction from Sea Leslie in NVC Working hours   
    Well, I called about 9:30 CST & told them I needed someone to update the error they had made with my file (wrong DOB), also verified that it hadn't been updated. At 10:06p.m. on a Friday night, I got an email that it was updated. Called to verify & sure enough. So SOMEONE with power is there at least until 11:00p.m. Eastern Time.

    lilQueenP got a reaction from M&C12 in Asking for a supervisor WORKED!   
    Here's a brief run-down:
    Sep 10, I called NVC & got case number from them & was told application would be sent to Haiti later that day.
    Sep 11, called to check & was told my fiance's DOB was wrong. I looked at the printed copy of the application packet & BOTH forms in the packet with his info, had the correct DOB & the same one I was giving. They said we had to send the birth cert & then hung up on me. Called back & a nicer guy said we can send a scanned copy of his passport. But then his scanner at work was down for a couple of days, so I sent the scanned copy of the original application this morning, but then he was able to get the scanned copies of BOTH his passport and birth cert later today, so I sent them.
    Sep 14 (today) around 10:00p.m. I called NVC & asked about it. The guy said it's still not fixed. I asked how long. He said check back in a week... FOR THEIR MISTAKE? I said that I didn't think that was fair, since they made the mistake. He said he'd find a supervisor. Came back & said no supervisor was available, but can he send a message to his supervisor. I gave him the info & was pretty firm in my request.
    WITHIN a half-hour, I got an email that it's been corrected! I wasn't rude. I was firm.
    Hope this helps someone!

    Overstaying your visa (The same as) - Someone asking to stay at your house for a week and never leaving
    Entering the country without approval or documentation (The same as) - Someone you do not know either breaking into your house or entering your house without permission
    DACA (The same as) - A stranger leaving a stranded child at your door "Your problem now"
    Amnesty (The same as) - You adding a stranger to your house deed and tell them they can live there with you
    USCIS placing priority on "illegals" (The same as) - Telling a stranger to eat your food first before your own children
    I'm sure you get the drift if you just place it into more personal aspects...

    Illegal aliens committed a crime and should face consequences for their criminal behavior. Why should the law be lenient on these crimes and not others? Not all illegals are innocent hard working "victims" as they are often portrayed on the media. Many force their way into this country to commit other crimes such as drug trafficking. What about diseases? Every immigrant who legally immigrates into this country must pass a medical exam. Illegals were not cleared medically before entering this country.
    What about American citizens who have had their identities stolen and their lives turn into a living hell because an illegal alien stole their social security number and illegally used it?
    This is not a black and white humanitarian issue.

    We need support from all members here for the best effect. The original outline:
    1. There is statistical and documented proof that the USCIS let I-130's for citizens pile up in order to faster process I-130 waivers and DACA's
    2. This also happened last year with I-129's and DACA's
    3. Congress must investigate, as this is a violation of the INA
    4. Congress must not pass an amnesty bill which will hurt legal US families
    5. Congress must ensure that the USCIS does not return to its old tricks of putting one group on the backburner, in particular in order to help illegal aliens in this country.

    Some of us strongly oppose no. 4 and probably part of no. 5. Hey, we're not too far apart on this. We still make a strong case if we remove no. 4 and edit no. 5. The downside is that we would lose the support that anti-amnesty lobby could bring to our cause. The upside of course would be that we would have everyone on VJ bringing their full support. We all did this together, and we can do it again.

    My suggestion is that we follow the money. USCIS is a fee based agency mainly and it depends on filing fees we pay to function. The final reason petitions were left to sit it can probably be traced back to a lack of resources. However, to take on a workload without adequate funding is a violation of Anti-Deficiency laws. If you study recommendations made by the Ombudsman from 2006-2007 you can see that USCIS has considered this in the past:
    The Ombudsman Urges Consideration of a Revolving Trust to Fund USCIS

    In the 2006 Annual Report (at p. 29), the Ombudsman suggested that USCIS approachCongress to establish a revolving trust account that would be replenished from future fees. A revolving trust would: (1) enable the agency to test innovative processes; (2) address unexpected program requirements from new legislation; (3) avoid potential temporary anti-deficiency concerns; and (4) encourage USCIS leadership to develop new processes instead of continuing programs which do not enhance customer service, efficiency, and national security, but nevertheless generate essential revenue. In its 2006 Annual Report Response (at p. 12), the agency stated: USCIS has researched this and has found that even though fees would eventually replenish the appropriated funds deposited in the fund, the legislation required to enact such a vehicle is not deficit neutral. Therefore, any legislation would have budget scorekeeping implications within the context of the scorekeeping conventions of the Administration and the Congress. USCIS does not discuss the benefits or drawbacks of a revolving trust. It only comments on the budget scorekeeping questions. The Ombudsman continues to believe that a revolving trust would resolve many of the USCIS revenue and funding problems. http://www.dhs.gov/sites/default/files/publications/2007%20Annual%20Report.pdf The truth is that part of your fee is also paying for someone else's processing. Just look at the fee schedules for forms to see some paperwork is done for 'free'. http://www.uscis.gov/forms%C2'> 'The total fee for Forms I-821D, I-765 and the I-765WS is $465. This fee includes a $380 fee for Form I-765 and an $85 biometric services fee.' Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, and Biometrics are standard costs for many people at one time or another. The cost for those services has been set and it's probably enough to cover the work. For some reason this fee based agency decided to process I-821D at no cost. Storing, sorting, data entry, adjudication, transferring and processing that form takes time and resources. If USCIS was not gaining anything in fees for all those forms, the resources had to come from somewhere else. Guess what I-821d is the form for?

    You are clueless about Haiti and about the earthquake. I did not post this to get Judge Judy-esque advice, but to get real help.
    He did not believe (or want to) that his wife and child were deceased, his family members insisted that he file the report when they weren't found. And they did it for him, which is often the case in Haiti.
    Not one of the officials were surprised at the numerous fake documents presented while we were there. It is difficult to get the official ones, and people work very hard to appear as officials to get your money. That is part of the culture here.
    He does not have two death certificates. The baby was a newborn and did not have a birth certificate yet. That is how it works in Haiti where most babies are still delivered at home.
    He is not claiming complete ignorance. He knows where he got them... from the friends/family members who did his bidding. That is the way in Haiti. There are many unemployed who are happy to do what they can for a couple of Haitian dollars. He has his cousin deliver lunch to me, and that regularily gets messed up... it's part of being in Haiti.
    Do yourself a favor. Read something about Haiti and about the earthquake. Find out how people mourn when there is not a body found, and then reevaluate how idiotic your assessment sounds.
    Have a nice day.
