AskUSCIS : We are here to help you!

Twitter Office Hours Second Tuesday of every month

We’re always working on new and different ways to help you. One idea is Twitter office hours, a series of events we launched on Sept. 1, 2015. During Twitter office hours, our experts answer your questions about the immigration process and working with us on other efforts. Here’s how it works:
  • Follow @USCIS on Twitter.
  • Ask your question in a tweet (not a direct message) using the #AskUSCIS hashtag.
    Please note: 
    • We can’t provide you case status updates, only answer general customer service questions. To check on your case any time, enter a receipt number at Case Status Online.
    • Don’t post your A-Number, receipt number, Social Security number or any other personal information. Someone could use it to steal your identity.
  • We’ll answer as many questions as we can during each session.
  • Afterward, we’ll post a transcript of the questions and answers to this blog.
Most answers will include a link to specific pages on our website,, where you can get more information.
When you ask a question, let us know the form number you’re filing if you know it.
Remember: Don’t post your A-Number, receipt number, Social Security number or any other personally identifiable information on social media.
With Twitter office hours, we want to help you – either as you’re preparing forms or after you’ve filed. To help as many customers as possible, we won’t answer questions about policies or take questions from the media, government agencies or stakeholder organizations. Members of the media should contact the USCIS Press Office at (202) 272-1200.

Citizens of Republic of Moldova, that entered US (tourist visa, J1 visa, etc.) are cheating/lying to USCIS for they could obtain permanent residence status, and after that to become US citizens.

Most of this people entered in to the US legally, but have stayed on US teritory after there visas expired, and they do a lot of illegal things to get there Green Card.

For them, the most seeked way to get Green Card, is to find a US citizen with whom they can get married.
Because it's not so easy to find a US citizen who will resque his/her future for 20 000$, all this illegals are trying on finding other ways to obtain Green Card.

So, the second way, and most popular for all this people, is to apply for asylum.

This people, when do speack about applying to asylum, are saying that is mandatory to have a "good story". This does not mean that the "story" is true.

When they apply for asylum, at USCIS, they present "prooves" about their persecution.

So, they do lie to USCIS that they are gipsys, homosexuals, etc. (In 2004 in the whole Moldova were living 13 000 of gypsis, and many of this people emigrated to Rusia or European Union).

So, the question is: how many moldovan real gipsys could enter US, and how many cases of "persecuted" moldovan gipsys do USCIS examin?!

The same thing is valid for moldovan homosexuals: moldavian societaty is tolerant.
There country even have a law, dated from 2012, that prohibits discrimination.

Because of all this changes in there societaty starting with 2014 moldovan people can travel (most of them just emigrate) to European Union.

Therefor, the most important question is: is there any persecution in Moldova?!

The answer is NO.
So, almost all the cases for asylum, at USCIS, are just fake.

P.S. Moldavian citizens in US are economic based immigrants, which are looking for money, only money.

P.P.S. A lot of this people are cheating when they pay taxes: many of them are working for cash and do not report that they have an income, but almost all of them are looking for benefits from the state. All the benefits are granted from the taxes that are payed by honest people of U.S.
Our societaty should not accept all this illegal immigrants that are doing only bad things.

Granting H4 visa holders the right to work in USA is unfair to those people who have spent time and money to study in US universities. They would definitely feel their work competition has only increased by H4 visa holders who come with domestic degrees from their home countries and get a job in US to the detriment of students who has studied in US universities. Better to latch on a H1 visa holder as a spouse than to waste money in studying in US universities.

It will be better if one puts a condition of obtaining a US university degree as well for a H4 visa holder. That is a win-win situation for everyone.

I filled for Naturalization (form N-400), and currently awaiting interview notice letter to arrive in the mail. Is there any way to find out if my field office will hold an aministrative oath on the same day as my interview?

Many question about immigrating to the US. on the .GOV site are shade of grey and not clear. Funny how an K-1, 2 visitor can surpass IR-1/CR-1 and 5 to come to the US. THE 1R/CR-1 are the family member who has to wait 2 TO 3 years just to rejoin the family in to come to the USA. you go the see the CA office to get information on your case on why its taken this amount of time to get an interview. Retire's should not have to wait in these line to bring their spouse and children to the USA. we are one who served 20 + years in the service and some continue to service as contractor oversea under the DoD and still have to wait in line. wait other still come into the US illegally. when are retire's are going to start get treat with respect and honor when we reach out to a service we need to get turn away or have a set we get back to you. how will you fill if you children wake up look and wondering when are we going to see out daddy or mom again cause the system is over run with poor management we are human and we can do better then this. but is my question going to get answer like i wait for interview date.. ??

I am really frustrated with the way your H4 renewals are working, we cant apply for renewal 4 months prior to the visa expiration, so i applied as per that, now when i check my renewal status it shows as case was received, i see that a lot of people who applied after me have had their case approved and am stuck.
Its annoying and frustrating, i recently got a job and was about to get promoted, but now everything is stuck and its hampering and affecting me both financially and personally.
Finally i could feel that am not in the H4 cage where i can at least put my 2 master degrees to a good use, but whats the point of all this, since my visa is stuck and i cant work anymore.
