Can I Be Arrested at My USCIS Interview?

Can I Be Arrested at My USCIS Interview?

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) appear to be working together to detain and threaten the deportation of people being interviewed about their marriage to a U.S. citizen.

Immigrants who are married to U.S. citizens and wish to permanently reside with their spouse in the U.S. have a meticulous and complicated legal process they must go through to prove their marriage is valid and that no fraud is being perpetrated.

In order to become legal permanent residents in the country, these people must first go through a required interview that is scheduled by USCIS. Recently, ICE has been appearing at these mandated interviews to carry out deportation orders. Some of the cases of deportation have involved orders that were decades old, as well as cases for which a waiver is already being sought.

This new move that has been enforced by ICE over the last few months has scared many families away from these interviews, leaving them unable to resolve their immigration status with USCIS authorities.
