If it puts a few bucks in his pocket,......



......youíre envious?

Not of the accusation against the next Senator from Florida of course.

Of the having a few bucks in his pocket.

Nice edit.

Itís almost as if you arenít aware of his time as CEO of Columbia/HCA. Iíd post a multitude of links that show itís more than an accusation, but youíll just ignore it and vote/support a guy that defrauded millions from American taxpayers.

Honorable...lmfao, yeah...itís a joke at this point

Thursday July 26, 2018.

I had my biometrics appointment this morning, scheduled for 9:00am.

The processing office was a 20 minute drive from my house, in the opposite direction of rush hour traffic, so was easy to get to and find. I arrived at 8:30am and was greeted by a security officer who reviewed my appointment notice and my green card and gave me a clipboard with a form to fill out. It was high level stuff: name, birthdate, country of citizenship, height, weight, eye and hair color.

Once that was filled out, I had to wait in a line to get to the in-take desk. I was 15th in line and it took 45 minutes. Other than a Jamaican lady and an Asian gentleman in front of me, everybody else appeared to be Hispanic. I was the only Caucasian person in the building, including the employees. All in all, I would guess there was about 40 people there to have something processed. My guess is most were renewing their green card, because I was the only one I saw getting the information about the civics test.

After the in-take desk, I was immediately into the biometrics area to have my photo taken, fingerprints taken from my right hand, and a signature.

After that I was free to go. Whole process was 50 minutes... not too bad.

Next step is the FBI does a background check on me, and when that is done, I will be scheduled for an interview and civics/english proficiency test.

There is a website where they list the processing times, and it appears for Dallas it's 16.5 to 18.5 months.

So now I guess I just wait.

I thought Trump implemented VIP lines for that?

Around 1999 I was helping a friend through the process. He was Guatemalan and was here legally as a refugee. He went for an interview, was missing a minor piece of paper and told he had to reschedule the meeting because he didn't have it. We then waited almost an hour on line to schedule a new appointment in six months.
Hopefully they have updated and streamlined the process a bit.

Do you have to do it locally or could you travel somewhere else? Pittsburgh is only 8 months.

Good question. Portland OR is showing 6 -14 mo. I'm assuming N-400 naturalization? Haven't scrolled back.

Dallas seems to be one of the longer waits on that form.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

That's just sad. I thought Trump
was making this an all white
country with his bigotry and hatred.
Still a long way to go, I guess.
