(a) Dear Editor:
Mr. Roth's article on Guangzhou U.S. Consulate (06/23/09 ID) is
very interesting and informative. I have seen unreasonable
requests from that consulate all the time such as proving the
familial relationship between the I-864 joint sponsor with the
beneficiary on family based cases ; requiring I-864 from the
principal beneficiaries for employment-based cases when it is not
required; video typing the beneficiary's hands making dishes when
the sponsored position is  a chef. In addition, the waiting time
is extremely long even when the visa numbers are current. With
visa numbers moved back and forth in EB-3s in past years, my
clients have been waiting for years when they could have
immigrated to the U.S. if the consulate processed my clients'
cases with a reasonable time. Also, rumors of bribery to the
consular workers in order to get cases move forward are
circulating for years.
