Immigration Advice

first_imgBiometrics Are Now Required For All Naturalization ApplicantsOn July 26, 2017 the USCIS announced a change in policy regarding the requirement for Biometrics (fingerprints & digital photos) to be taken from Naturalization Applicants. Until now, the USCIS has waived Biometrics for Residents who are age 75 or older. Under this recent change, all Residents, regardless of age, will be required to have them taken. Residents with certain medical conditions, may still be eligible for a waiver and special accommodation will still be made for Residents with disabilities, those who are homebound or hospitalized.THIS WEEK’S IMMIGRATION QUESTIONS & ANSWERSQuestion: Hi, I’m from Trinidad and came to the U.S. in 2015. I met my fiancé in 2016. I overstayed my visa by 2 months last year to be in Florida with her for the Christmas holidays. I then returned to Trinidad to get things settled before coming back to America to get married and file my immigration papers. When I tried to return to the US in March of this year, the officer at the airport cancelled my visa and told me I had to get a new one at the Embassy because I overstayed the last time. I explained I overstayed only 2 months, but he said even a day is too long! When I reapplied at the embassy they denied me. My fiancé and I are devastated, and don’t know what to do. She plans to come to Trinidad in August so we can get married here. My question is, will I be able to accompany her back to Florida once we get married. What is the immigration process from there? Answer:  This is very common. Unfortunately, under Immigration regulations, once you overstay your period of authorized stay in the U.S. – by even one day – when you leave the U.S., your U.S. visa is automatically canceled. You are not allowed to re-enter on your Visa Waiver (or B1/B2). You are instead required to apply for a new B1/B2 Tourist visa at the U.S. Consulate in your home country. Once an individual overstays in the U.S. and then applies for a visa at the U.S. Consulate abroad, the Consular officers are very unlikely to issue a B1/B2 tourist or any other type of Non-immigrant visa. This effectively closes all possibilities for legally traveling to the U.S. again.The exceptions are Visas, such as a Fiancée Visa and Spousal Visa (for foreign Fiancées & Spouses of U.S. Citizens). However, foreign Fiancées and Spouses are not issued the Visa which allows them to travel to the U.S. until all the technical processing is complete, which takes 6-8 months or more.In your cases, since your fiancée is going to fly to Trinidad to marry you, once she returns, a Spousal Immigrant petition can be filed to initiate the process of bringing you to the U.S. as a U.S. Resident. You won’t be allowed to return to the U.S. along with your new wife, instead, you have to wait in Trinidad for consular processing.Question: I am from the Bahamas. I was sponsored for a green card in 2014 by my sister in the United States. My family here at home has passed and I don’t have anyone left but my sister in America. I need to know any possible way to cut down this long waiting time to immigrate to America sooner or if I can just be allowed to go to the U.S. and stay with my sister there while I am waiting?Answer:  Sorry to hear that you are alone there. Unfortunately, there is no way to expedite the immigration process for siblings of U.S. Citizens (F4 immigration category). It will likely take 12-14 years for an Immigrant Visa to be available in that category. The law does not allow siblings to stay inside the U.S. while waiting to immigrate unless they are in the U.S. in another legal visa category like an F-1 student visa or some other work visa.last_img read more

Knockout: Ghana’s Patrick Allotey beaten after just 5 minutes!

first_imgIt was an anti-climax for Patrick Allotey whose maiden fight in the United States ended before it even began after the Ghanaian was knocked out in only the second round of their scheduled 10-rounder at the Turning Stone Resort & Casino, Verona, New York.Allotey was fighting back when he suddenly fell to the canvas and failed to even raise his head as the referee counted to end his US debut even before some of the fans knew what was happening.A brief but action-packed five minutes between southpaw Patrick Teixeira (now 25-0, 20 KOs) and Patrick Allotey (falls to 30-2, 24 KOs).Fan-friendly from the opening bell, the two skilled boxers targeted body and head with a constant stream of blows in the first, then picked up in the second round right where they left off.But when Teixeira found a slight advantage with Allotey’s back pressed to the ropes, he fired off a stream of punches, punctuated by a right hand body shot that sent Allotey retreating to his own corner, then taking a knee.It’s not clear what actually happened to the Ghanaian but he did not beat the count, giving the still-undefeated Teixeira his 25th win at 2:04 of Round 2. “I’m very happy and excited, and I feel very emotional about winning my first fight with Golden Boy,” said Teixeira.“I was ready to go the full 10 rounds, but I’m glad we got the knockout. I want to get more fights to season myself and very soon fight for the world title.”But for Allotey is a return to the drawing board as he chases the world championship dream, his second straight defeat after previously going undefeated in 30 professional fights.–last_img read more

Alex Lewis announces Ravens released him after 3 seasons

first_imgView this post on Instagram Thank you to the Baltimore Ravens for drafting me back in 2016 and giving me an opportunity to play in the NFL. It has been a memorable three years. Appreciate all my teammates and coaches I have met along the way. Loved the atmosphere of Baltimore and the amazing fans that supported us! Unfortunately, I was released today. Thank you Baltimore! “As one door closes another opens. “A post shared by Alexander Lewis (@alexlewis72) on Aug 5, 2019 at 5:02am PDT”Thank you to the Baltimore Ravens for drafting me back in 2016 and giving me an opportunity to play in the NFL,” Lewis wrote. “It has been a memorable three years. Appreciate all my teammates and coaches I have met along the way. Loved the atmosphere of Baltimore and the amazing fans that supported us! Unfortunately, I was released today. Thank you Baltimore! ‘As one door closes another opens.'”Lewis, 27, started training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list after he had shoulder surgery in the offseason. He passed his physical shortly before announcing he had been cut, so the Ravens don’t have to pay out a settlement for releasing him while injured. According to The Athletic, the Ravens were unhappy with Lewis because he rehabbed his shoulder away from the team, but with left guard being one of the Ravens’ weakest spots, they tried to “make it work.”A breakup between Alex Lewis and Ravens seemed inevitable before camp. Lewis rehabbed away from team and Ravens clearly weren’t pleased. But with left guard such a question mark, figured they’d try and make it work. Not so.— Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiec) August 5, 2019His departure leaves Jermaine Eluemunor, James Hurstand and rookie Ben Powers as possible replacements.Lewis was a fourth-round draft pick by the Ravens in 2016.

Christmas Forest raises $672,000 to help Further the Providence Mission

first_imgFacebook128Tweet0Pin1Submitted by Providence St. Peter FoundationProvidence St. Peter Foundation is pleased to announce that the 30th annual Christmas Forest raised $672,000 to benefit the Providence Mission of providing compassionate and excellent health care to all, with a special concern for the poor and vulnerable.One of the amazing trees at this year’s Christmas Forest was “Christmas at Tiffany’s” decked out in blue and white with goodies from the famous jewelry store. Photo courtesy: Providence St. Peter Foundation.This annual six-day event, sponsored by Titus-Will, is the foundation’s largest fundraiser and community event which brought in thousands of visitors to see the trees and wreaths decorated by volunteer designers. The trees and wreaths, as well as a number of donated specialty items, were then auctioned off at the dinner and gala to help support charity care, life-saving equipment and compassionate programs for Providence ministries in the southwest Washington region. Several trees and wreaths were pre-sold or were raffle items.“This was the 30th anniversary of Christmas Forest, and the history and tradition of this magical event was so special this year,” shares Jen Foley, a Providence St. Peter Foundation board member who co-chaired the event with her husband Eric. “Both Eric and I were so humbled by the outpouring of generosity from gala attendees, and others who made gifts but could not attend the gala. Our incredible designers truly poured their hearts into their creations which made a beautiful event to start this holiday season.”More than $307,000 of the total was raised to create the Providence St. Peter Hospital Dental Residency Program, making it the second highest total in Christmas Forest’s 30-year history. This program will provide critical dental care to the lowest income and medically compromised adults and improve outcomes of dental-related emergency center visits at St. Peter Hospital. The dental residency program will be located on the Providence St. Peter Hospital campus and will provide both primary and emergency dental care.“Many members of the dental community were in attendance supporting the dental residency program,” shared Peter Brennan, executive director of the foundation. “We received a $55,000 match from the Washington State Dental Association which was a tremendous incentive for attendees to give generously. The support for the dental residency program from both the dental and medical community was truly evident and deeply appreciated.”This adorable wreath from this year’s Christmas Forest was aptly titled “Merry Christmas.” Photo courtesy: Providence St. Peter Foundation.A number of the trees and wreaths purchased were donated back to the community and can be seen in the lobby of St. Peter Hospital, Providence St. Peter Hospital Neurology Unit (9th floor) and Medical Unit (4th floor), Providence St. Peter Sunshine House, Providence Mother Joseph Care Center, St. Peter Hospital Surgical Waiting Area, Panorama Convalescent & Rehabilitation Center, Olympia Senior Center, Boys and Girls Club and Kaiser Permanente.“Christmas Forest is about caring and providing compassionate health care to our most vulnerable citizens,” shares Rick Middleton, board president for the foundation. “It is our community’s responsibility to help care for those in need by giving of ourselves and doing all that we can to make a difference in the lives of so many. A heartfelt thank you goes out to all of our donors, volunteers and caregivers who made this event so very special.”Christmas Forest will return in 2018 with public viewings and the gala over the November 30 – December 2 weekend.last_img read more
