I have filed a petition for my husband since Nov. 2007, the wait has been long. My husband had his interview on July 1, 2009. At the time of the appointment he was asked to come back the following day to finish his interview. At both interviews he was asked about drug use, he was honest and told them that he did use, but that he has been clean for three years, they also focused on his tattoos, and was asked if he was in a gang. My husband stated to them that he wasn't in a gang, but that he did hang out with a few of his friends that lived around the barrio. Then he was told that he might have to ask for a pardon, because of him crossing illegally, but the officer said he didn't think so. He was told that he would receive information through DSL, and the paper would have instructions on what to do next. On July 9, 2009 we received a blue paper stating that he's case was still under process and to revise the Internet under CiudadJuarez.usconsulate.gov/visa for his case number, and in that they would give him following instructions. Until this date his case number has never showed up, and the process was supposed to only be 6 to 8 weeks, (let's do the math). On July 15, 2009 the American consulate send another letter stating that my husband had another appointment on Sept. 02, 2009, but this appoint was for a K3 visa that I had filled. I wrote them to ask them if we needed to go because he was already under process for his Green Card. The American consulate send another letter stating that it was an error on their part and he did not have to attend that appointment. Two days later I asked my husband to call and verify what was sent in the letter so that we did not get penalizes for not attending the appointment. He called and they told him the same thing that was on the letter, and at that time he asked what was going to happen in his case. The person stated for him to call on Oct. 1, 2009 to tell him what was going to happen. Which I did and they told me that he was denided because of the drug use, but that he was eligible for another appointment in two months. On Oct 19, 2009 they send me another letter stating that he was denided because of the drug use, and because of gang affiliation that had no waiver and that he would not be permitted to enter the United States because of the affiliation with gangs. My husband was never in a gang, just hung around the barrio, he has no criminal record in his city or in the United States. Can we Re-Appeal the case or start another one, and does double jeopardy render in such cases? If reappealed.
