Hello to my Hero "Publicus",

I just done with my interview last week, and I NOT waiting for oath letter, I am waiting for the 120 days rule to be offer so I can sue them. What kind of exhibits do I/we need. I am preparing my self from the day of the interview for my lawsue.
Thank for been good fighter and get what is yours and helping each and everyone here to fight for what theirs.

Good for you. It's always good to have a back-up plan. That was my plan since I had my interview. To sue the Bastards if no decision has been made within the statutory time.

Exhibits I included are:

My N-400
FBI no records FOIA
Military awards
DD-214 Honorable Discharge
Congressman letters​

Basically you can add any document that you think might make your case powerful. When you complaint is well written and solid, it will further push the US attorney to settle the case as quickly as possible.

FBI Name Check pending for more than 1 year or more

Everyone, in the wake of 9/11 there is no use waiting for Name Check to get cleared as the FBI will not move unless you file your Writ of Mandamus(Green Card - AOS) or you file for 1447 (N-400 - Naturalization), even though you have congressional assistance or even senatorial assistance. This is simply not going to work. So please file your case. I have included my case for Writ of Mandamus if ya'll want to use it, make sure you make copies of all your correspondences from the last few months and put as Exhibits. Everyone's case is different so please use according to your needs.

Also I got a call from the US Attorney's Office in Massachusetts saying that he has handled a lot of these cases and the FBI will only help expedite or entertain cases with Mandamus or 1447 filing. This I tell you because my Name Check got cleared on Jan 12th and I filed on Dec 23 last year. So please file your case and do not hesitate. Also I asked him (US Attorney) if the USCIS will deny now since I have made a Civil Case against them with my case and his response was ofcourse not. Why do you think they have a new Head in the Dept of USCIS, they obviously had issues with the previous person heading (Eduardo Aguirre) the department and so they know they have failed miserably. So just do it. The more the cases the better.

This way the government will know what the hell is going on with Tax payers who are foreigners, living legally and want to move on in life. Also do it before the Congress approves on HR 4437. Act now. Take care and all the best you all. This is the reason why I'm pushing you all to file a case, let be a Mandamus or a 1447.

But make sure you do what Publicius said first

1. Contact your Federal District Court and ask for a Civil Case Pro Se package.
2. Read it and follow the instructions.
3. Prepare a lawsuit on Microsoft word. Print it and sign it.
4. Get a Civil Cover sheet and fill it out.
5. Call the court and ask to speak to the clerk...explain your situation and listen for advice.
6. Either mail in or drop off the papers [complaint (with exhibits if any) + cover sheet]
7. The court will send you a summons with your case number.
8. Make copies of the summons and your complaint. (one for each defendant and an extra copy for the US attorney in your district)
9. Put the case # on all copies.
10. Serve the complaint + summons + exhibits if any via CERTIFIED MAIL RETURN RECEIPT REQUESTED on all defendants and the US atty office. Call the US ATTORNEY and get their address and the right department you should send your complaint to. (read the memo called whom to serve in my first post)
11. Wait for the return receipt. The 60-day count starts from the date shown on the receipt received from the US atty.
12. File the return receipt with the court, and send a copy to the US atty office.
13. From here, everytime you file something with the court, send a copy to the US attorney and file a Certificate of service with the court. (see p.10 of this thread for an example)
14. 2 weeks before the expiration of the deadline, call the US atty, introduce yourself, and ask about your case.
15. Hopefully the name check will be cleared, and you'll be a citizen within 2 to 3 months of filing the suit.

People to serve are

Alberto R. Gonzales, United States Attorney General
US Department of Justice
950 Pensylvania Ave., NW
Washington, DC 20530-0001

Michael Chertoff, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security

Help, Publicus!

Publicus, please look at this attachment. It looks awful. The lawsuit that was filed under 8 U.S.C. 1447(b) was dismissed at the same court house that I filed. I don’t know what to do. I found out to whom my case was assigned at the US attorney office. Should I try to make an appointment and talk to him?
Thanks in advance.

Application Denied

Today in the mail, I received a denial notice. It was dated 8 February 2006. Surprisingly, it was sent my regular mail though the regulations clearly state that is must be delivered in person or by certified mail.

The basis for the denial was that I never sent in the notarized affidavit I was requested to submit within thirty-one days of my interview. The document was notarized and sent by UPS on 10 June 2005 (two days after my interview).

In September 2005 I was told at an INFOPASS appointment that the delay was caused by the pending namecheck. In December 2005 the District Director left a message on my voicemail and said that the delay was caused by the pending namecheck. In December 2005 I also received a status update that mentioned that the delay was caused by pending background/security checks.

Now, a month after I filed a lawsuit, I was determined to be ineligible because I didn't submit a notarized affidavit. This is clearly retribution. I guess I'll be spending this weekend writing a motion.

I have proof of delivery of the documents by UPS to the USCIS Norfolk Sub-Office. I also sent a certified letter with return receipt on September 20, 2005 in which I wrote "I couriered the form you handed me at the end of my interview on June 8, 2005 to your office on June 10, 2005. As I have not received any requests for additional documents, I assume the notarized document and statement were sufficient." Furthmore, the letter in response to my status inquiry with the NCS only mentioned that the delay was caused by pending security/background checks.
I'm gonna write a letter to my state Senators and Senators who sit on the Senate Judicial Committee to let them know how USCIS acts.
Don't worry, I'll fight this to the end!!!

I wrote an official complaint the the CIS Ombudsman. I included a copy of my letter where I asked the officer if the documents I had sent were sufficient to meet the requirements. I mentioned that USCIS never indicated to me that I had missing documents and that they continiously stated that the delay was cause by pending background checks. I also that that it is clear that this decision was made in retribution to the lawsuit I filed a month ago. I'll send it by certified mail first thing Monday morning. I just finished faxing a copy of that letter with a note to my state Senators and members of the Senate Judiciary Committee as they have oversight over USCIS.
I'm going to try and set up a meeting with the US Attorney's office to show them, in person, the BS their clients pulled.

On February 01, 2006 I was planning to go the District Court and file a lawsuit under 8 U.S.C. 1447(b)

Few days before the end of January I got the letter from FBI saying that my Name Check was completed after the intervention of the White House.

Of course I'm happy that in 2 weeks from now I'll be an American citizen, but also I'm a little bit disappointed and frustrated, because I was 110% ready to go to Court and kick those s.o.b.'s @$$. :D

Since I had my lawsuit complaint ready and I don't need it anymore, before I trash it, I'm going to post it here, maybe it will help as a model for the people who are thinking to sue the CIS.


See Attachment.

Good luck everybody :)

Useful Info

Here is some info I have gathered over time, you might find it useful. Good luck:

FBI Headquarters main number is: 202-324-3000 (ask
the operator to transfer you to a supervisor in Mr. Hardy's section)

Alberto R. Gonzales, United States Attorney General
US Department of Justice
950 Pennsylvania Ave., NW
Washington, DC 20530-0001

Michael Chertoff, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security
Office of the General Counsel
US Department of Homeland Security
Washington, D.C. 20528

Emilio T. Gonzalez, Director of USCIS
Department of Homeland Security
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
Washington, DC 20528

Robert S. Mueller, III, Director of FBI
Federal Bureau of Investigation
J. Edgar Hoover Building
935 Pennsylvania Ave., NW

DHS/ USCIS
Office of the Chief Counsel
20 Massachusetts Ave. N.W.
Suite 4025, Fourth Floor
Washington, D.C. 20529

this is the AILF contact info, why not run this issue by them.
Nadine K. Wettstein, Director, Legal Action Center
202-742-5600 ext.5611 (nwettstein@ailf.org)

Steps to take to file a lawsuit:

1. Contact your Federal District Court and ask for a Civil Case Pro Se package.
2. Read it and follow the instructions.
3. Prepare a lawsuit on Microsoft word. Print it and sign it.
4. Get a Civil Cover sheet and fill it out.
5. Call the court and ask to speak to the clerk...explain your situation and listen for advice.
6. Either mail in or drop off the papers [complaint (with exhibits if any) + cover sheet]
7. The court will send you a summons with your case number.
8. Make copies of the summons and your complaint. (one for each defendant and an extra copy for the US attorney in your district)
9. Put the case # on all copies.
10. Serve the complaint + summons + exhibits if any via CERTIFIED MAIL RETURN RECEIPT REQUESTED on all defendants and the US atty office. Call the US ATTORNEY and get their address and the right department you should send your complaint to. (read the memo called whom to serve in my first post)
11. Wait for the return receipt. The 60-day count starts from the date shown on the receipt received from the US atty.
12. File the return receipt with the court, and send a copy to the US atty office.
13. From here, everytime you file something with the court, send a copy to the US attorney and file a Certificate of service with the court. (see p.10 of this thread for an example)
14. 2 weeks before the expiration of the deadline, call the US atty, introduce yourself, and ask about your case.
15. Hopefully the name check will be cleared, and you'll be a citizen within 2 to 3 months of filing the suit.
For the employees of DHS, you send the summons to the Office of the General Counsel. Since you sued Alberto Gonzales, send one to him, and send the summons to the local US attorney office, call them and ask for the correct address. So basically, the Divine and Chertoff copies go to the General Counsel. The Attorney General's copy goes to him, and finally one copy of the complaint goes to the local US attorney. (address it to him)
As follows is what I got from Rule 4 Summons of Federal Rules of Civil Procedure http://www.law.cornell.edu/rules/frcp/Rule4.htm

(i) Serving the United States, Its Agencies, Corporations, Officers, or Employees.
(1) Service upon the United States shall be effected

(A) by delivering a copy of the summons and of the complaint to the United States attorney for the district in which the action is brought or to an assistant United States attorney or clerical employee designated by the United States attorney in a writing filed with the clerk of the court or by sending a copy of the summons and of the complaint by registered or certified mail addressed to the civil process clerk at the office of the United States attorney and (B) by also sending a copy of the summons and of the complaint by registered or certified mail to the Attorney General of the United States at Washington, District of Columbia, and

(A) Service on an agency or corporation of the United States, or an officer or employee of the United States sued only in an official capacity, is effected by serving the United States in the manner prescribed by Rule 4(i)(1) and by also sending a copy of the summons and complaint by registered or certified mail to the officer, employee, agency, or corporation.

The rule only mentions registered or certified mail. I will call the Court to see if I can get a definite answer from Clerk.
When you receive the return receipt, file a prove of service with the court.
Remember, call the court's clerk's office if you need help

Sample 1447(b) Petition from an Immigration attorney

Sample 1447(b) Petition from an Immigration attorney

This petition is available at the website of law offices of Thomas Esparza Jr. The website address is www.tomesparza.com The file is called Model Naturalization Delay Petition (word document), and it was added 12/15/2005. For those of you who are considering filing soon, you may want to take a look at his template. He also places large emphasis on the FOIA complaint of his client's immigration file from USCIS in 10 days as required by law. 8 C.F.R. § 103.10(c)(1).

Pro Se Package

zaraza said:
We are going to file a lawsuit, formally speaking it's my husband who will be a plantiff, but I am here to help him all the way. Today I called Federal district court, clerk's office, and asked to send me a Pro Se package. The clerk refered me to the web site with forms but to my suprise she did not know which forms I needed (she said civil cover form and also suggested General Discrimination Complaint form, which sounded weird to me, there is no Pro Se package Publicus wrote about in his posts on that site). I am confused. What does Pro Se package contain?

If you are in NJ district you can check this page out. Search for Pro Se in this page and you will find the link to Pro Se package in pdf format. You can save and print the Cover Sheet and Summons pages which are included in the package (it is in the FAQ page).

http://pacer.njd.uscourts.gov/

If you are not in NJ and looking for pro se package go to your state's district court website and search for Pro Se. You should be able to find it easily.

I do not know why clerk told you about General Discrimination Complaint form. I think s/he does not know about the details. In the cover sheet you will be asked about the nature of law suit. It is Other Statuary Actions (890). What you should do is to prepare a complaint letter. Each state has format you should follow. The pro se package has the format you should follow. In that letter there are certain sections that you should fill out with your own information. In NJ you are supposed to use plain English and explain your situation shortly and clearly. Basically you have Cover Sheet, Summons, Complaint Letter and associated Exhibits and filing fee which is 250 dollars right now. If you want you can also include introduction letter to the clerk such as this:

------------------------------------------------------------
Clerk of Court
United States District Court For the District of New Jersey
Martin Luther King Building & U.S. Courthouse
50 Walnut Street Rm 4015
Newark, NJ 07101


Re: "Your Last Name" vs. Gonzales, et al.


To Whom It May Concern:

Enclosed for filing in the above referenced matter please find the following:

1. Check in the amount of $250 to pay the filing fee;
2. Civil Cover Sheet;
3. Complaint for Hearing on Naturalization Application;
4. Summons in a Civil Case; and
5. Exhibits


Thank you. If you have questions regarding the filing, feel free to call me at "Your Number".

Sincerely,


"Your Name"
Plaintiff/Petitioner

Enclosures
--------------------------------------------------------------------
If you have time to hand this package to court by hand then you can ask the clerk any question you have in person so that you will not miss anything in your package. Even if you mail your package they should contact you if anything is missing as far as I know. They are supposed to be understanding to Pro Se applicants. Good Luck!

REalSuperK,

1. When and which office did you send in your FOIPA request to?
2. Did they send you any kind of receipt or anything in writing showing that they received your FOIA request?


Also read the lawsuit I posted on this website a few posts earlier. It also has FOIPA complaint againt USCIS (for failing to respond to FOIPA) incorporated within the 1447b petition for naturalizaiton hearing.

1. Lee's Summit, Missouri.

http://uscis.gov/graphics/fieldoffices/stlouis/aboutus.htm

"Freedom of Information Act (FOIA):
Please send your FOIA request (Form G-639) to:

National Records Center
FOIA/PA Unit
P.O. Box 648010
Lee’s Summit, MO 64064-8010"

2. Yes, I got a reciept... over a month ago (on Feb. 3rd). And I sent my request 2-3 weeks before that. So, it's been a couple of months and I still have no information from them. Why am I not surprised?

I added all my FOIPA dealings into my complaint. Plus mentioned all my attempts to get any information from them including my Infopass appointment a couple of months ago during which they showed me the actual date when they requested the background check - 3/15/05. That was the only useful thing about that Infopass appointment.

This is the responce that I just received via E-mail. I sent USCIS a warning letter (Intend to sue) back on 2/25/06. good thing is that I already filed my 1447(b) after I heard about HR4437.

Dear Mr**
Please be advised that your February 25, 2006 letter to Dr. Emilio Gonzales
has
been forwarded by fax to this office. Your letter appears to be correct in every
respect. As you have already been advised by others within USCIS, the
mandatory
name check does still remain pending at the present time. USCIS is
therefore
unable to proceed with your application.

They always act tough at first. At first the Assistant US Attorney (AUSA) said that there was no way that they would expedite my namecheck. Then yesterday I received calls from both the DHS and USCIS legal offices. Today, I received a voicemail from the AUSA and he said that he was waiting for USCIS to send him the information he had requested and that he hoped that we might be able to resolve the issue.
