Living with 290

Living with 290: Wife not allowed in country

After 11 years of marriage we spent the last two, trying to get my wife allowed in the US from the Philippines. I am retired and she is 9 years my younger. We have no children and we lived together until the USCIS quoted the Adam Walsh Act and denied my wife entry. The case was a consensual case, but i took the plea deal, served no prison and six month in county. No recommendations for ” rehabilitation” in file as i am not a predator . One crime in my entire life and im sentenced to a death sentence. It has bee 21 years and my pardon has been oked by the Dept of Probation as a recommendation of Pardon, but its nowhere. The people in sacramento say, its pending and its been 8 months already…

My wife is now away from me in the Philippines and its so heartbreaking… I have to support my wife in our house there and i am here… I cant believe this system. I have not been in California for over 8 years and will never return. I want to be with my wife and the system will not allow. How unjust is this? For twenty plus years i have gotten one driving infraction for no lights on in the day on the desert freeway… oh my… I am here in our home, just waiting for a Pardon from the three judges who will look at my case… What a mixed up crazy system.. I was on the tier system for years and had to reg only once a year. Now Nevada requires me to reg every three months and they changed my tier just like that… and now I have no friendly neighbors any longer.. Can you imagine what we go thru as well? I am praying that they give me a Pardon from this nasty law…. Its unjust, unfair and unconstitutional, in my eyes..

We 290 registrants, should not be all grouped into one category… There are predators who need to be watched for sure.. For people who have not committed any crimes for ex: over twenty years should get a quicker consideration… Very very sad…
