I am a 72-year-old law abiding US Citizen. English is my first language, a College Graduate and went through this. Can you even imagine trying to obtain a Green Card not speaking the language, There is no planet B. not having the means or time to do this???? So, before any of you cast a stone, remember my story.
Cool There is no planet B items!
Two years ago I started an application for my then thirteen-year-old grandson born in Brazil. His father is an American Citizen, and so am I. Since we could not prove that my son had lived for five years in the US, it was processed through me. I visited the Immigration Dept in Miami every two months for two years straight. There is no planet B. I paid the $600 fee twice cause I had to go through the process twice. I stood on line, was body searched and scanned every time I went back. The documents all had to be officially translated. Every time I went back they asked for another document.
When I finally did everything required to get my grandson Citizenship, the lovely officer behind the desk leaned over and said to me, “I’m so sorry ma’am, but you missed the deadline”. Well, I lost it, I literally lost it. I broke down and literally started to cry. I cried from exhaustion, from humiliation, from being disrespected.
Click it and show your cool!
my son has now hired an Immigration lawyer. He has spent already over $3,000, yet we still don’t know when his papers will be ready. It’s really exhausting. I was born in Brazil to American parents, and naturalized American at birth. It was so much easier back then. My two sons were born in Brazil, 1972 and 1980. Funny shirts. Both also became US Citizens through Naturalization abroad. Nowadays, it is very very difficult, even for a person like myself to acquire citizenship for my grandson.
I’m so sorry you had to go through this. There are some evil people in this world that have no soul. I wish the best for you and hope you will be able to return back to the US someday when we have a credible and honest president back in office. I’ll be praying for you.
