POE Review: Los Angeles
Event Description
Entry Date : 2009-09-01
Embassy Review : Fell in line with the visitor section. Had a long wait until it was our turn. Inspector was a bit of an @ss and had a snotty attitude. He was not too pleased I (USC) was in this line and explained I asked INS agent directing traffic if I could be with my fiancee' and was told no problem and to go to the visitor line. he stamped my passport and said "you go now". So embarrassed my fiancee's first contact with our government was this "person". Her papers were in order and was asked some basic questions. No secondary inspection
Harassment Level : Low

*Notice about estimates: The estimates are based off averages of other members recent experiences
(documented in their timelines) for the same benefit/petition/application at the same filing location.
Individual results may vary as every case is not always 'average'. Past performance does not necessarily
predict future results. The 'as early as date' may change over time based on current reported processing
times from members. There have historically been cases where a benefit/petition/application processing
briefly slows down or stops and this can not be predicted. Use these dates as reference only and do not
rely on them for planning. As always you should check the USCIS processing times to see if your application
is past due.

** Not all cases are transfered
