  1. Hello everyone! I was just curious if anybody has ever reported suspicious people or activity to this website: http://www.ice.gov/webform/hsi-tip-form (or called their Tip Line)? If so, did you become aware of the fraud reported being successfully prevented or some sort of action taking place? I know this is a bit of a stretch to find out since the website clearly states no updates are given but thought I would ask anyway. Thank you.
  2. Hello I was just wondering if anyone is going thru the same situation as I am my husband was arrested some years back for possession and assault the charges and was sent to ice were now we report to “probation” every 6 months the charges were dismissed and after that we had started the i130 petition, now it has been approved and have to start out waiver. On September is his court for the deportation? We were told that are best option would be to voluntary leave US, if he he does that and we end up going to Juarez can he still be approved for residency .. Anyone who has gone thru this same thing or similar i would really appreciate it.
  3. OK, there's routine enforcement targeted at undocumented citizens, visa overstayers, violent criminals, etc., and then there's this. Resident in the US for 50 years, legal and all, and seemingly grounded in his community. Then picked up by ICE without warrant for removal apparently because of a 17-year-old misdemeanor in his record. Yes, he probably should've filed for citizenship aeons ago, but this just feels wrong. https://splinternews.com/legal-resident-arrested-by-ice-as-family-watches-from-h-1826807456
  4. My husband and I are going to be traveling domestically in the next few months. We'll be within 100 miles of the border at some points. Border patrol is doing random checks in one of the areas. Does anyone know, what is the best way to explain to the border patrol that my husband is legal? He is on a K-1 visa, but it has a slash through it from when he entered. We are married and waiting for the green card. But he technically doesn't have any kind of formal "status." I'm worried about encountering an untrained officer or my husband being detained. It's a scary time to not be a "citizen" or "resident." If he's neither, what is he really, in the eyes of the federal government?
  5. Just reading this article: https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/apr/01/green-card-arrests-undocumented-immigration-trump In summary, a man was arrested by ICE when he was at his I-130 interview with his (US citizen) wife at a USCIS office in Massachusetts. He did not have a criminal record, and has several US citizen children with his wife, but did have an order of deportation against him. It seems that USCIS called ICE. Four others were detained the same day. This case is particularly concerning because I thought overstays were forgiven when you filed (?? Or is that just for AOS?): "[ICE also arrested]...a Brazilian woman in her late 30s, [who] is also married to a US citizen and has a US born teenage child. ... She came to the United States in 2001 and overstayed her visa. She does not have a criminal record, [her lawyer] says. She was detained immediately after she and her husband were interviewed for I-130 approval, which would have paved the way to her obtaining a green card." Mods, please move this post if it's not in the right place!
  6. First of all, I apologize if this isn't the right place to post this. With that said....I received not long ago an email from ESTA reminding me that it’s validity to be used to enter the country through VWP would expire soon and if I wanted to enter the US again I’d have to re-apply. I was talking to my wife about this and the I-94 topic and stuff we need to take care of for my process, between talking amongst ourselves and family members, mixed with internet searches, speculations, a lot of doubts started to creep up. These are the top 4 ones that we would like to see clarified (even though I doubt a few of them). And bare with me, some of them are probably completely ridiculous (or at least we hope). ESTA EXPIRATION CAN LEAD TO ICE REMOVAL PROCEEDINGS AGAINST AN INDIVIDUAL. WE SHOULD FILE BEFORE IT’S EXPIRATION. I find it kinda hard to believe one thing is related to another since the ESTA is basically to grant you access to enter the US without a VISA (visa waiver program). Since I overstayed my visa already is the ESTA issue even relevant to ICE/CBP? I mean, if I already overstayed my visa doesn’t this mean i am automatically disqualified from ever being eligible to the VWP through ESTA? How could this be related to ICE? Should we just file before the ESTA expires? CHECKING YOUR I-94 STATUS ON THE CBP SITE CAN EXACERBATE AND/OR INITIATE REMOVAL PROCEEDINGS ESPECIALLY IF ESTA HAS EXPIRED AND/OR YOU HAVE OVERSTAYED As I was trying to fill out my I-485 I was checking to see if I had or could access my I-94 document on the CBP site. Which I couldn’t. I later read on the USCIS site that if I was never given this paper the stamp on my passport will do. Anyone know if this is the case btw? Also, am I at risk because I checked the CBP site, IE, did I flag myself because I entered my info in the website as they were telling me? IT COULD BE THAT I ALREADY HAVE PROCEEDINGS AGAINST ME AND NOT EVEN KNOW IT (MOSTLY DUE TO CHECKING THE CBP SITE) Now, this one I worry a little about since it would nullify the AoS. So, is there anyway to know this? I heard they will mail you but what if you recently moved? EVEN IF CBP LET ME ENTER THE COUNTRY THE PATROL OFFICER COULD HAVE FLAGGED ME ON HIS COMPUTER IF HE HAD ANY SUSPICIONS AND STILL LET ME ENTER THE US. THIS WOULD LATER BE USED AGAINST ME IF I EVER APPLIED FOR AOS/ETC. I have no clue what to say to that other than, geez. I mean, I’m already out of status and in the country, talk about messing with your mind. Why even bother apply or anything? Some of the stuff on the net just makes it seem like a dubious lost cause. But, if you have intent to migrate it could be flagged by the border patrol officer and this could be pulled up in your application review? Wouldn't the patrol officer just deny your entry instead? Now I tried to check some of this info out, to see what would apply to our case but it’s hard to tell, especially with the ESTA expiration. All I was able to get was a depression thinking the ICE is coming for me 24/7 and even if it doesn't, it's a lost cause since we will be flagged on our interview. Any thoughts? Are we overreacting? Thanks!
