The last week has been filled with insecurity.
My wife calls me on the phone from Australia crying because she has come to learn that she can’t enter the United States to be with me. I’ve been a bit of an optimist in a situation where optimism is a foolish en-devour.
“Don’t worry baby, everything will be ok!” I proclaim.
I proclaim in vain. She spent the last week learning somthing that I was unaware of: The USCIS is an unweilding oranization.
My wife, is unable to enter the country as a tourist. She can only enter the country upon our filing of an I-130 USCIS form. This form requires 5-6 months to process. After this 5-6 month process, she will be allowed to enter with the mysterious blessings of a Customs and Boarder Patrol (CBP) agent.
These blessings from the CBP agent come without precedent. Who knows if he/she will allow her to work, stay, live, be my wife or anything else.
Yeah 5-6 months for me to see the woman with whom I plan to stay with for the rest of my life. Then we have a mysterious waiting period without mercy or precedent.
That is, of course, far to long. So I will be once again, departing the United States. It is unfortunate that I must leave the country that I love. Despite all my past deadfast belief that this is the greatest country in the world; I find myself in the unfortunate situation where my love contradicts my countrys policy.
United States Immigration policy is flawed. There is a strange an relentless policy that disallows humanity in the process.
I am let down and Ill leave it at that.
