My friend Paul Parsons, an immigration lawyer in Austin, sent me recent correspondence sent to the Department of State regarding a disturbing new trend.

    This goes to my hypothesis that countries generally discourage international marriages and US is no exception. Half of the Danes married to Singaporeans have been stuck in that country for the past ten years because they cannot get their wife and children visas. A Brit doctor married to a Thai is moving to Singapore because the Thais wont give him residency and the Brits wont give her or their children one. The Brits have been particularly nasty when it comes to this by classifying whites marryign Asians as arranged marriages (mail order brides). The Aussies are perhaps even worse. Congratulations to the US consular officers for finally catching up! So much for US family values!

    Since when is this a 'sudden' development? I've been seeing it in HCMC & Guangzhou for five years. I first saw the administrative closure thing in 2008.

    Those cases are so evidently dubious that I am surprised that they would be picked up as examples of over-zeal by adjudicators. Unless, of course , the lawyer wants to set precedents based on the most outrageous cases (arranged marriages, mail order brides). This is a mockery.

    The dowload site docstoc appears to charge for downloads. Why would you not post it on one of the many sites that allow free posting and downloads?

    We're also seeing a great many admin closures, then long delays, then NOIDs on I-730 petitions. USCIS almost always re-approves the petitions if you submit additional evidence and sends the case back to DOS, and so the whole admin. closure process is pretty pointless - all it leads to are delays that are inefficient for the government and cause families hardship.
