Months ago 21 US Embassy employees suffered a variety of injuries from attacks of an unknown nature in Havana, Cuba. As a result, US State Department pulled out all families of employees and nonessential personnel from Cuba, and stopped routine and ordinary visas processing to ensure the safety of their personnel. Our sentiments are with the victims of these unacceptable attacks. 

Consequently, hundreds of relatives of US citizens and legal residents waiting for consular processing have been collaterally impacted by the attacks suffered by employees of the US Embassy in Havana, Cuba.

Immigrant visas for Cubans nationals will be processed at the U.S. Embassy of Guyana. However, the Cuban Family Reunification Program (CFRP) continues without a solution.

 The US State Department should find out options to continue the Cuban Family Reunification Program (CFRP) while ensuring the safety of their employees. Our families have been divided for years while waiting for the lawful reunification process. We are also victims of these attacks.

 USCIS invited us to participate in the CFRP. We completed the required paperwork and paid fees. Consequently, the conditional travel authorization for our relatives was approved. Our cases are now waiting for the interview to be completed. 

 Nobody seems to have a response for us on when and where the interviews for the CFRP will take place. CFRP processing is in a limbo. Our lives are being impacted by the uncertainty. We deserve answers about how our CFRP cases would be completed.
