Dear Mr. Rich; Theresa; Bobbie:
Alfred and I reported to our immigration interview yesterday, and it went very poorly from what we observed.
The officer who spoke with us called Alfred in and talked with him for 20-25 minutes (during this time she received 2 calls from her significant other on her cell phone.) She then called me in and and asked me to verify my address, birthdate and SS, and proceeded to ask me roughly seven questions.
What color are our sheets? Which side of the bed does he sleep on? Is there a tv in the room? What brand is it?! Do we use a comforter, what color? What did we do for/receive as gifts for Valentine's day, Anniversary, and my upcoming birthday? Where/when did we meet and who initiated the first date?
She did not ask to see our updated paperwork, in fact when it was offered to her she said "I have other people to see, I don't need it."
After speaking with me, she asked to see Alfred again and when she saw him she said "Well, your answers are inconsistent." She said there was no way that I could forget receiving a new cell phone as a birthday gift only two weeks ago. She was in with him the second time for around 8 minutes, and she did not wish to see me again, or us together.
Each time we tried to elaborate on our answers to provide detail she acted uninterested. Again, we tried to give her the updated Affidavit and our tax information and other new info and she said she did not need it. Alfred asked her during the second trip in and she said she wanted the work letters. Not mine, but his. He gave them to her and that was all.
She didn't tell me anything, and she told him upon leaving that we would get a letter within 6-8 weeks.
Is this normal? I feel that I was treated very unfairly by this officer. Other interviewees had their attornies present, and when Alfred went in without one she seemed flabbergasted that we would appear without representation. I didn't even know it was an option, nor did I think we should need council present.
Perhaps this lady was just in a foul mood, but it seemed like a very rushed interview because each time we offered any information she responded with "It's ok, I don't need it" or, "I have other people to see". She didn't want to see pictures or anything.
This whole ordeal has made me sick to my stomach and now I'll have to wait for 6-8 weeks with severe anxiety over it. I hope you can tell me that this has happened before to clients who have been approved, but I seriously doubt it.
I have printed the appeal information on the USCIS website and I plan to be ready to send this in with our updated packet of information that she refused as soon as we hear something, since there are only 30 days in which to respond.
Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
