USCIS Enlace questions and answers.

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Here are some of the questions asked to USCIS during yesterday's conference (Wednesday Dec.5) and the answers given by USCIS.

The conference was in Spanish so i'll do my best to translate it and if you participated in the conference feel free to add whatever I didn't include here because I only took notes on some of the DACA questions asked. The subject of Deferred Actions was hardly mentioned during the conference, most of the questions asked were questions dealing with Forms I-130 (Petition for Alien Relative) and I-601 (Application for Waiver of Grounds of Inadmissibility)

Hola a todos,

Estas son unas de las preguntas hechas a USCIS durante la conferencia de ayer (Miercoles Diciembre 5) y las respuestas dadas por USCIS.

Si alguno de ustedes participo, porfavor sientanse en libertad de agregar alguna otra cosa que no agrege aqui porque solo tome nota de algunas de las preguntas hechas acerca de la Accion Diferida. El tema de la Accion Diferida casi no fue mencionado durante la conferencia, la mayoria de las preguntas formuladas fueron acerca de la forma I-130 (Peticion para pariente extranjero) y la forma I-601(Solicitud de exencion de causal de inadmisibilidad )

* USCIS has received about 300,000 applications for Deferred Action

* 200,000 applicants have received their Biometrics appointments.

* 50,000 applicants have been approved.

* USCIS ah recibido alrededor de 300,000 applicaciones de Accion Diferida.

* 200,000 aplicantes an recibido su cita para las hueyas.

* 50,000 aplicantes han sido aprobados.

Q. Will I be able to travel to Hawaii with Deferred Action?

-Alaska and Hawaii are considered part of the United States. If you are planning to travel out of the United States you must apply for Advanced Parole and file a I-131 Form and pay the indicated fee.

Form I-131 ( Advanced Parole) : Wait until you receive your approval. The applicant must submit a letter explaining USCIS the reason why he/she must travel outside the US.

Q. Podre viajar a Hawaii con la Accion Diferida?

-Alaska y Hawaii se consideran parte de los Estados Unidos. Si usted esta planeando viajar fuera de los Estados Unidos usted tiene que aplicar por un Permiso Adelantado y presentar el formulario I - 131 y pagar la cuota indicada.

Forma I-131 ( Permiso Adelantado) : Espere hasta que sea aprovado. El aplicante debe presentar una carta explicando a USCIS la razon por la cual el o ella debe viajar fuera de los Estados Unidos.

Q. I sent my application for Deferred Action two months ago and I'm still waiting, but others have been approved already, should I worry?

- No, you shouldn't worry. The process can take from 4 to 6 months. There are many people applying for Deferred Action, but if you feel you have any concerns regarding your application you can call USCIS or go to your local USCIS office and ask an officer.

Q. Yo mande mi aplicacion para Accion Diferida hace dos meses y sigo esperando, pero otros ya han sido aprobados, deberia preocuparme?

- No, no deberias preocuparte. El proceso puede tardar de 4 a 6 meses. Hay muchas personas aplicando para Accion Diferida, pero si usted siente o tiene alguna preocupacion con respecto a su aplicacion usted puede llamar a USCIS o ir a una oficina local de USCIS y preguntarle a un oficial.

Q. Can I still apply for Deferred Action even if I already have a removal or deportation order?

- Yes, you can still apply for Deferred Action.

Q. Puedo aplicar a la Accion Diferida aunque ya tenga una order de deportacion?

- Si, usted puede aplicar a Accion Diferida aunque usted ya tenga una orden de deportacion.

Q. Is it better to apply for Deferred Action or have my husband petition for me? Can my husband still petition for me if I apply for Deferred Action?

- Deferred Action does not grant residency. Deferred Action only allows you to apply for an employment authorization, but if your husband can petition for you, you should immediately start the process, but you will still not be eligible for adjustment of status within the US, you would need to go back to your home country.

Q. Es mejor solicitar la Accion Diferida o que mi esposo haga una peticion por mi? Puede mi esposo hacer la peticion por mi aunque yo solicite la Accion Diferida?

- La Accion Diferida no otorga la residencia. La Accion Diferida solo le permitira aplicar para una auntorizacion de empleo, pero si su esposo puede hacer una peticion por usted, entonces deberia iniciarla inmediatamente, pero aun con Accion Diferida usted no sera elegible para ajustar su estatus dentro de los Estados Unidos. Usted tendra que viajar a su pais de origen.

Q. My husband was deported and he is currently living in Mexico, Can I still petition for my husband?

- Yes you can still petition for him, but the case will be a bit complicated.

Q. Si mi esposo fue deportado y actualmente esta viviendo en Mexico, aun puedo hacer una peticion por el?

- Si aun puede usted hacer la peticion por su esposo pero su caso sera un poco complicado.

Q. What can I do if I feel like I was discriminated due to my race by one of the USCIS officials ?

- This shouldn't be happening, but if that's the case you can call toll-free to 1-800-323-8603 to speak to a USCIS supervisor.

Q. Que puedo hacer si siento que eh sido descriminado por mi raza por uno de los oficiales de USCIS?

- Esto es algo que no debe suceder, pero si este es el caso usted puede llamar gratuitamente al 1-800-323-8603 para hablar con un supervisor de USCIS.

Nice article erica..but this part:

Q. I sent my application for Deferred Action two months ago and I'm still waiting, but others have been approved already, should I worry?

- No, you shouldn't worry. The process can take from 4 to 6 months. There are many people applying for Deferred Action, but if you feel you have any concerns regarding your application you can call USCIS or go to your local USCIS office and ask an officer.

I think will cause overload at the offices if people who applied for DACA start going in to speak to an office to inquire about their case...

I agree, the representative from USCIS didn't give much details and just gave a general answer , pretty much what we know already ... and personally I didn't like her response to this question :/ .... but I guess that's all the info they're gonna give us :/
