The Department of Homeland Security wants to present myself at noon tomorrow at their office to have my fingerprints taken. They will check the fingerprints against the FBI database.
This is weird because I already underwent this exact process at the exact same office when I applied for the green card 5 years ago. My criminal record could have changed, yes, but fingerprints remain the same, so why not just use the previous batch?
The notice I got informs me that if I try to reschedule, the immigration case will be set back by months. It is as if they wanted only the kind of immigrants who don’t have jobs to be able to apply.
