US Department of Homeland Security’s Malicious Immigration Policy Has Destroyed at least 4000 Families Since 2011

Submitted by “Robert” – By the agency’s own statistics, the number of denied Adam Walsh Act family petitions will surpass 4000 by 2017. This is a staggering number of families decimated by USCIS for no apparent reason. Each of these cases highlights the stories of immigrant families and US citizens who struggle for years to cope with the heartbreaking effects of our country’s broken immigration system. USCIS’s malicious AWA policy serves no rational purpose and undermines the goals of family unity.

For years after its enactment, the USCIS has either outright denied or intentionally stalled thousands of family petitions that it determined to fall within its own AWA policy. By 2011, after several years of long delays, the USCIS denied virtually all AWA applications held at the agency for review since 2008. The agency reports that it receives 400-600 AWA application per year and boosts that it has denied 99% of all AWA family petitions received. is now organized to fight this unconstitutional program by the US government that is intentionally destroying thousands of families.

Please help us get the word out to those who have an Adam Walsh Act immigration case pending or a denied petition for their spouse or fiancée to contact our website so we can mobilize and fight this unconstitutional and destructive program.

The discussion paper highlighting this US government policy is posted on our website:


The mission of is to bring an end to the Adam Walsh Act, a law that unconstitutionally prevents two adults in a loving relationship from being together. Additionally, we wish to put an end to the practice of denying a green card to a resident spouse already married in the US, thereby keeping them “captive” and unable to visit their families in their country. This creates incredible hardship on the family! We intend to fight to bring an end to the heartache brought on by the Adam Walsh Act and protect the rights of citizens worldwide.

My family was forced out of the country because of this. After several years of fighting and appealing the final denial letter was issued to us.

Believe me, it’s about to get worse. Don’t be afraid, just know it’s coming, mein führer trump!

It shouldn’t be a surprise, homeland security is the home and employer of America’s Nazis. It’s entire basis is distrust of all Americans, like the gestapo of Germany. You know, as a historian, the term history repeats itself is extremely applicable to this country, it just goes from one corrupt ideology to the next. When this stolen nation dies, it will be a relief.

The SCOTUS case is not relevant to the AWA family petition cases.
As the discussion paper highlights – DHS is deporting non-citizens for someone else’s (their petitioner’s) criminal conviction under AWA and not for any criminal conviction of their own. It is hard to get one’s head around that one – a person deported for someone else’s criminal conviction.
The SCOTUS case is about someone with their own criminal conviction.

I’m keeping an eye on this because my wife is an immigrant who was granted permanent residency over a year before she and I met. She has never bothered to become a citizen, and now because of this, she’s concerned they may decide to take action and deport her because of my conviction. Because of AWA and other things, she’s working on getting her citizenship finally, hopefully they don’t use my conviction against her there either.

Breaking up families is horrible…unless the headline reads something like this:


This is affecting me more than anything else right now. My wife and I have been separated for 4 years because of this and we don’t know what to do. As bad as all the other restrictions are, this one is affecting us the most because it’s not just about me. Now with IML I don’t even know if I’ll be able to go see her again. It’s a horrible never ending nightmare.

This is TYPICAL of the LAME US GOVERNMENT, they DO NOT CARE ABOUT citizens its ALL About COLLECTING DATA and they DONT CARE who they screw over (including other countries) Watch the movie by oliver stone SNOWDEN, The US Government does ANYTHING it can and will ILLEGALLY !!! They dont care as no one is ABOVE them, It will take time but in the end im sure people of the US will REVOLT as in civil unrest, I guess for some reason it takes US longer to get the clue compared to like france, Slowly look at the cops shooting innocent people here, small protests, trump protests (that is kinda dumb it isnt gunna make any change trump is still president in ’17 (and no this isnt a political view for or against him that protest does nothing) but stuff is starting to show… US Government needs to be put back in its place like 40-50 yrs ago when citizens DID count now they are just 1 big evil machine and their spying and illegal stuff like the FISA act.

It’s hard to understand the irrationality of this law. My situation: I’m from California and I was convicted of one count of a 261.5(c). That’s unlawful sex with a minor.

I married my wife January of 2016, and she’s from another country. I never even knew about the AWA nor its implications on her getting a green card.

I was open about my crime from the very beginning with my wife. I’ve never lied or tried to give her an impression that I’m a victim. I made a mistake. I am doing my best to move forward and start a new life.

Things were going great. We live together and, she goes to University here so she has a visa and isn’t going anywhere soon. The green card would help though for work and of course allow her to stay with me in the future

But, I have to prove I’m not a risk to my ADULT WIFE. Risk? We live together! For a year! Wouldn’t the fact that I’m currently married to an adult alleviate risk? I guess they’re more comfortable with a single male.

My wife is heart broken and cries literally at random. I am broken inside and I am lost. I am currently seeking an AWA waiver and paid extensive attorney fees, but from what I read it’s practically impossible to achieve success.

So here I am, by all accounts rehabilitated. If I wasn’t, then I definitely wouldn’t be married to an adult. But they want to take that away from me. They want me to lose my wife. To protect her.

So let’s recap: I regrettably had sex with a minor. I married an adult. Now I have to prove I’m not a risk to my ADULT WIFE. Yet, they allowed me to marry my wife in the first place, which kind of makes the whole thing redundant. If I were a risk why allow me to marry her? Let me guess, I’d be less of a risk if I were single looking for a date? Ah, okay.


I was convicted of lewd & 288c lewd & lascivious act with a minor (16) her age of victim was the daughter of my live in girlfriend.
