Uniting Bi-national families

    1. Petition by

      Keeping Families Together !

      Belton, MO

So many bi-national families are being separated while trying to come to the US the "right way" due to the 3/10 year bars. I know first hand what it feels like to suffer being separated from the person you love most for an indefinite period of time... and my spouse was never even deported. And it's not as simple as just going to your spouse's home country to be together; I did that, and it became far too dangerous for BOTH of us there but I had to come home alone leaving my spouse behind in a dangerous place where my spouse could be a potential target for organized crime... just for being married to me, a USC.
We need a reform that wouldn't require immigrants married to USCs to face a bar, as long as they have no criminal record in their home country or the US.

      My family is experiencing the same dilemma. The I-601 Provisional Waiver process WILL make a difference for USC spouses --we must push for this to take effect immediately.
