After hearing from my friends that they have started stamping, I went again this wed. But was turned down, because, guess what, they already have our FPs and I-94s, was told to come back only after we receive any farther notice. How foolish of them to get our finger prints and I-94! They could have sent us back to come back on a later wednesday. Now we are stuck. People who went this wednesday got PP stamped with necessary background check and no hassle. Ridiculous!

In fact I was also thinking of going next wed.
Did they tell you when can we expect so called letter of invitation from them.
Somehow they did not take my I-94 and AP on 15th but did take FP.
This is insane
What is POA now??? just wait
They couldn\'t answer how long it would take for them to send us a notification. Actually all our processings are done, barring the background security check, which they are doing on the spot for candiates now. So, this is just a mess up and we are unfortunate.
Unlike me, You have all the necessary papers with you, Approval, I-94, you can make copies of photographs and try again, they are so callous, they will surely process your case, but it is better to make sure that you tell them you came on 5/15. I would suggest you to go next week, it won\'t hurt(unless we get notifications by that time, see! I never lose hope and never learn!)
Please post here as soon as you get any farther notification, that would give us, your fellow sufferrers, some hope against hope.
After waiting more than 6 hours, the IIO called the supervisor, and she turned down mercilessly, and asked us to wait for the phone-call/letter from them.
I asked when can I expect the call? Answer was no definite time frame.
This is how they treat immigrants...Unfortunately this is the country of immigrants...
By the way they stamped the new persons Today(except May 15th victims), after security check, which was done in
Guys lets just wait, I so tired from this stuff
status-quo since May 20! Don\'t know when to expect the phone call/mail from them. Atleast, Newark started stamping now. No word on Arlington yet!
All the best, guys! you\'ll all be stamped by the end of next week!
Guys, I think it\'s better to go to REMIND them.
Otherwise how long will we wait? Who will give priority for our cases?
And we will be punished by them, you want this ? Because nobody control them
I went down again to INS office.Stood in line. They are not stamping for new people too!. Went for information in the info centre.got token.
wrote in an application for enquiry.On finally reaching the line , got the same person who had earlier taken my finger print ,letter,photos .
I told her this stamping business is not consistent.They still do not know that it is being stamped all over the country other than some specific state. She :-"Mam , Have got orders from Washington"
Me:-"Hey , it is not consistent".
She looking at another person in uniform
She:- she says they are stamping elsewhere.
he:-The current order from washington is no stamping. Will stamp on further notice.
She:- he is my supervisor. If he says no stamping. No stamping.
Me:- How do I track .What should I do next
She:-Wait for the letter. We will send you a letter.
She did not take the enquiry application form I had written.
Went down to the line where the passport stamping takes place.
At the counter.
Me:-What should I do for emergencies to get out of the country.
She:-If you get a death certificate and have to go to the country where you belong , you will get the stamp.They have got new computers ,12 of them. So will take time to train and process.
I thought it is better to wait for the so called letter that will come in post for people who have been rejected
and for new people in NY , I think it is better to wait till they start stamping like in Newark . But go if time is about to expire.
I went to Newark yesterday, they said that I have to wait till I hear from them. They are stamping for the New cases. It looks like we have to wait for a while.
Hey it is unfair that new people are getting stamped
and the ones who went there on 15th are not. Can we
talk to the senator or to the press regarding this.
This shows why all criticize INS. They do not know
what they are doing.
You mentioned that they\'re stamping new cases, do you know after which date means new? And if you noticed that they were not stamping pp, can you walk away and go to another center like searching_help did (see searching_help "No Stamping in HARTFORD....but stamping in ALBANY" 5/24/02 3:13pm) ?
