Members of Immigration Crime Victim Advocates File Lawsuit!
SUPPORT OUR CURRENT CAUSE! We have organized a Mass Litigation suit and the initial steps already underway.
Overview of Issue at Hand:
- U.S. Citizen and Lawful Permanent Residents (LPR) Sign an I-864 form affidavit of support (contract between U.S. Citizen/LPR and government requiring U.S. Citizen/LPR to be financially responsible for immigrant), as required by USCIS when filing application for sponsorship of an alien relative (ie. spouse).
- After marriage, and after immigrant obtains Green Card: U.S. Citizen/LPR discovers fraud. His/her spouse is not who they claimed to be and has married him/her for the sole purpose of obtaining a Green Card.
- U.S. Citizen/LPR informs USCIS of the fraud. They supply USCIS with the evidence and request to be removed as sponsor, and have I-864 form declared null and void.
- USCIS has sole discretion and authority to determine whether to terminate the green card, approve future benefit requests, initiate deportation proceedings, and terminate the I-864 contract.
- Any information provided by U.S. Citizen/LPR is added to the a-file of the immigrant. The Immigrant has full access to his/her a-file through FOIA request with USCIS. The U.S. Citizen/LPR, however is denied any access to any information the immigrant has supplied USCIS pertaining to him/her or any potential allegations made by the immigrant. The U.S. Citizen/LPR is denied Due Process and denied his/her own information under the guise of the Privacy Act of 1974.
- USCIS refuses to act on the evidence provided by the U.S. Citizen/LPR and there is no recourse to demand USCIS handle the complaint and information properly.
- USCIS approves the Green Card locking U.S. Citizen's/LPR into indefinite and infinite terms of financial support for the immigrant fraudster. The U.S. Citizen/LPR is required to keep the immigrant above the poverty line (roughly $14,000.00/annually) Should the immigrant use any public benefit at any time, the Federal Government or State Government may also file suit against the U.S. Citizen/LPR to recover the costs of supporting the immigrant. For example: Should the immigrant go on public health plan, and receive cancer treatment in the sum of $4,000,000+ dollars. The U.S. Citizen sponsor/LPR would be liable to reimburse the health plan in that amount. The limit of expense is infinite under the I-864 terms.
This, among other violations of our rights as sponsors, is precisely why we have organized a group of potentially 50 individuals to file suit against USCIS.
