On the news today I heard that you guys will knock on doors soon and visit people who didn’t return their census forms. I am unable to return my census form this year, so I am sure you’ll stop by the house to check on me later this summer. The last time we met was 10 years ago. Do you remember me? I was a computer science student at Arkansas Tech, had recently married a local, and we were expecting a baby. Do you remember me now? It was that cute little mobile home by the bay, my maroon Chevy S-10, my Doberman, oh and the chickens in the backyard. Now you remember! Yeah, it’s been a long time. We also had filed for an adjustment of status for me.
A lot of things happened in 10 years. This change of status must have been a government scam as we never heard a word from them, except for the initial thanks for your payment post card. Lots of problems, but I thought I’d try again. After the 911 thing they changed their system, but they are still unable to process paperwork in a decent time. And guess what? Instead of processing my paperwork they just came to my house one late afternoon in 2007, chained me up, and a month and a half later they just put me on a plane back to Germany.
A lot more problems followed, but I wont bother you with those. Since they are still abducting and deporting husbands and fathers, wives and mothers, paperwork processing is still as slow as can be. My son and wife left the US and followed me. We spent some time in Germany, Canada and France. And now we’re still waiting for them to process our paperwork.
So I am sorry to say, this time around Arkansas lost 3 residents. Two of them US-born citizens and one alien (according to the US government). They even gave me an alien registration number. I didn’t know I was an alien, but at least they didn’t take me to area 51 and experiment on me. I had found a new home, started a family and a new life in Arkansas. And I actually thought I belonged there. It’s a beautiful state! They call it the natural state for a reason.
According to immigration law I have the right to residency, but they chose to waste thousands of taxpayers’ money to house and feed me for 6 weeks, drive and fly me across the US, and finally put me on a plane to Germany. All the shackles and chains and armed guards must have cost a fortune!
I am not sure why a government would choose to break up a family and put them through so much trouble and pain. Is it worth hurting a wife and a child who are both US citizens and deport the father and husband who has the right to residency and will get it in the end anyway?
Where’s the logic in this? But we’re working on my paperwork, or should I say, we are waiting on my paperwork. We are waiting on a response, once again. But maybe I’ll see you in 10 years.
Now I just need someone in Arkansas to print this out and post it on my door.
