Calidreamer got a reaction from Dreamer3oh3 in Best Credit Cards To Apply For After Daca
I'm a strong believer that Money is King and I like to invest and watch my finances carefully; I saved enough and bought my car cash (it wasn't an old car) did the same with everything I own. It is hard but very possible; the problem comes when you need the vehicle NOW 'cause you have to move from home, work and school that is when credit comes in handy, You can buy a house too But since you aren't "building your credit" you will need to find a mortgage company that does actual underwriting, and you would have to have a good down payment, obviously you won't get too big a loan.
Like I said don't bite more than you can chew; I'm sure you have read Ramsey's statistics @ Afrosana you can see that there are people who is able to use CC and be smart about it, so I'm just giving my fellow DREAMers the benefit of the doubt.
BTW I could not view the video
Calidreamer reacted to Santi in Save The Date - Wed, Jul 10 - House To Discuss Imm. Reform
Hello all -
A couple of thoughts as to what transpired last week and what is expected to happen this week :
- G-Dub (President Bush) endorsed immigration reform on Sunday in national TV, and said that there was a strong chance that a bill would be drafted in the House.
- Rep. Michael McCaul R-TX, criticized the current version of the bill, saying that the provision to secure the border was drafted in a hurry and that it lacked a structured plan...'Candy thrown down there...'
In a nutshell, the momentum is there, let us see how the House debates on the issue and hope for the best...keep your hopes up and fingers crossed!!!
Calidreamer reacted to Santi in Florida International - First In State Schools In Fl To Offer In-State Tuition To Daca Recipients
I was in your same exact situation...
But rest assured that by having your application reviewed by Nebraska, you won't have to wait any more than you think...
Just be patient and you will be compensated...believe me...when I was waiting, I suffered from increased anxiety, insomnia - you name a disorder, I probably went through it in some form or another...
Just hang in there dude - next time, when you are studying at the GL, eating at GC, paying for tuition at PC, or supporting your Panthers at the Cage, you won't even remember what waiting felt like...
Calidreamer reacted to Santi in C.i.r. Bill To Hit Senate Floor Running June
Article? Click Here
I am exhausted after staring at a computer all day, so here is a summary of the article:
After a series of amendments tried to derail the main pillar of the legislation (citizenship) failed on the senate floor (see previous article), the bill is starting to tilt a little to the right to garner additional support from conservatives
Additional support from Republicans will most likely translate into additional support from Latino voters in the elections of 2016 (read - quid pro quo) - my assumption
Trade-offs and additional amendments could threaten the common ground reached by the Gang of Eight earlier this year
The main issues of debate from conservatives are Border Security, Employment Priorities for Citizens, the Exit Visa system (major airports - to avoid people overstaying their visa), among others
The LGBT amendment to allow partners/spouses of Citizens/Residents to obtain legal status was defeated, because it threatened the reluctant support of conservatives that currently back the bill
Many supporters are strongly defending the provision to allow undocumented immigrants to pursue a pathway to citizenship, as long as certain criteria are met (as discussed several times before)
So, big win for us today.
Let us get ready and show increased support in the next couple of weeks, because D-Day is approaching very fast...we either attack on Biscay, the Balkans, West Med, Norway, Pas de Calais, and perish...or we storm Normandy and win in the senate...
(yes - big reference to WW2...big woop, wanna fight about it?)
Calidreamer reacted to Santi in Misdemeanors
Let us analyze your situation carefully and see what we can conclude...
1. You say that one of the cases was dismissed in court. I assume you were not charged, or am I mistaken? If you were not charged, that is great, and hopefully you sent the certified paperwork to USCIS proving that you were not indicted in that particular case.
Now, to the interesting stuff...
According to the State of Texas:
Class B misdemeanors are considered more serious than Class C misdemeanors and carry punishments of a fine of up to $2000, and/or a jail sentence of up to 180 days. The court may also impose a maximum of two years of community supervision (adult probation)* or three years of community supervision with an extension.
Examples of Class B misdemeanors include:
DWI (Driving while intoxicated) first offense
Evading arrest on foot
False report to a police officer and false 911 calls
Failure to pay child support
Minor drug possession
You may have noticed I highlighted some words in the examples above. This is just to show you what other crimes are considered Class B Misdemeanors in TX...
Now, on to USCIS and their guidelines.
For deferred action, USCIS has established guidelines regarding the application process. Some of these guidelines deal with situations where the applicant has committed an offense/offenses against the particular state where the applicant was present at the time of the offense.
Here are the guidelines regarding National Security and Public Safety, that apply to your particular situation:
A significant misdemeanor is a misdemeanor as defined by federal law (specifically, one for which the maximum term of imprisonment authorized is one year or less but greater than five days) and:
Regardless of the sentence imposed, is an offense of domestic violence; sexual abuse or exploitation; burglary; unlawful possession or use of a firearm; drug distribution or trafficking; or, driving under the influence; or,
If not an offense listed above, is one for which the individual was sentenced to time in custody of more than 90 days. The sentence must involve time to be served in custody, and therefore does not include a suspended sentence.
If you have been convicted of a felony offense, a significant misdemeanor offense, or three or more other misdemeanor offenses not occurring on the same date and not arising out of the same act, omission, or scheme of misconduct, or are otherwise deemed to pose a threat to national security or public safety, you will not be considered for deferred action under this process.
Please keep in mind that in no way am I trying to lower your expectations, or give you false hopes. I am just being factual with the information that I am sharing with you, just so you have an idea of how to proceed.
According to all of the information provided (yours and mine), if USCIS decides to interpret both offenses where you were convicted as Class B/Significant Misdemeanors, the probability that they will Defer Action in your particular case is very slim or close to zero.
Just let it play out and wait for the outcome of their decision.
Hopefully, their decision is a good one and you are DACAmented.
Keep us posted about the status of your case and put yourself in the presence of God...
